The efforts of two of Waikato’s rising stars in BMX have paid off. Hamilton students Cailen Calkin and Jessie Smith have been selected for the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games, held in Buenos Aires in October.
Well the 2016 race season is almost at an end and what a year it has been for myself. Ups, downs, rejection, success, crashes, fun, adventure and a whole of traveling and enjoyment both as an athlete and as a coach.
Well done to all the NZ Team riders with some exceptional riding especially Leila Walker taking out her 4th World Title and our other World Title Champions Sasha Earnest, Cailen Calken, Jessie Smith and of course Maynard Peel.
