What an honor and privilege it was to ride for the United States in Abu Dhabi. BMX has come along way since I started riding. We used to be looked at as trouble makers, and now we proudly wear the Red, White, and Blue!!!
I was chosen in 2021 to ride for the USA National Team at the World Championships in France. I took 5th in the world, which wasn’t bad for my first competition after a five-year break.
In 2022 the BMX World Championships traveled to Abu Dhabi. This was my first trip to the Middle East, and it was a trip to remember. Thanks to everyone for your continued support of my 20+ year BMX career. I am going to keep this going as long as you will allow me.
Below are some photos from the epic trip to Abu Dhabi.
Flying with friend and teammate Terry Adams. Our original flight was canceled the day before. Always leave early 🙂
Literally flying across the world.
Within 30 minutes of arriving we hopped in the Arabian Sea. These are all four USA BMX Flatland Riders who competed in Abu Dhabi.
Memories for life with Terry Adams, Lindsey Bode, and Bo Wade.
Wild Scenery in Abu Dhabi.
Getting ready for Prelims with French rider Alex Jumelin. Friends first, competitors second.
That feeling when you stomp a run and make the finals. Always an honor to represent the United States in the finals.
I went straight from O’Hare airport to Violet’s dance competition to surprise her.
Both of us were competing that weekend, and I didn’t want to miss her performance.
