Added reply in a thread Which foot is forward for your, aaaaaand....... 2/4/2020 12:23 PM

Right handed. Air right. (Just about). Don’t know what foot is forward, but assume left and gave brake left side (sniper 1 finger) great brake. All adds up to average unimpressive riding, but some mega crashes.

Hey dude this is Winny in the Uk. Ckone45 I can’t really compare my ankle with your back. But I destroyed it and I know what it’s like being a caged animal. I’ve been riding a year now and am almost 44 but feel like 10 years younger on the bike. It’s ... more »

Hey eilidh. I am 43 and can understand how you feel. I’ve been riding since Xmas. I started cause my son who is 9 wanted to, so I thought I’m getting a bike too. My son is a gymnast and trains a lot so sometimes I go on my own. Now a 43 year old man ... more »

Started new thread Exposure good or bad 8/27/2019 1:36 PM

Seen many people mention exposure of Bmx. Generally it seems to be assumed that exposure is a good thing and can only benefit bmx. However I also have some doubts on that. I have learned through other sports earlier on in my life that exposure brings ... more »

Where abouts you from mate, and do you have many parks nearby. Trying to get about and do many different spots is a great way of improving quicker.

Bang on! Sorry to be boring, but I had a head trauma as a kid. I wasn’t doing anything that required a helmet, but nether the less I received a brain injury that has massively affected my whole life. I quite often say to people at skateparks get a lid ... more »

I’m only 5’10” and got a 21.1. My first bike was a 20.6 I believe. Only ridden that for 6 months before getting 21.1, but definitely helped me out. Being older I believe it’s handy to have a less twitchy bike. Making progress already. I guessed this ... more »

Hi. Just felt the need to express my feelings at the moment. I realise that there are other guys doing Bmx in their 40s. I just started at 43 and I’m really loving it. I used to race mx and also did track days on gsxr. But with 3 kids and a house that ... more »
