So here's the deal I'm 20 and I've rode motocross for a long time and recently broke my ankle and had to sell the bike to pay for bills since I had know income and now I'm thinking about getting in to bmx again since i can't afford a dirt bike right now and I know 20 is young but is it to old to start ?

40 isn't to old to start , all that jibberish aside , how haggard is your ankle ? Your going to fuck up your ankle worse trying Bmx
Catching pedals as opposed to stationary footpegs on a moto , if your ankles fucked and your used to a motocross boot and you throw on a mid or hi top bmx shoe your going to
Murder whatever your ankle has left

Yeah, I restarted (after a like 17 year break) at 36. You'll be fine.

How long ago did you break your ankle? What kind of break was it? I broke mine about two years ago, and it still hurts like shit sometimes. I'm hoping it gets better someday.

My bad I guess I didn't technically brake it I chipped the bone off of the ball on the left side of my right ankle and fractured it and serverly sprained it so I just say I broke it so I don't have to go into great detail but I did it a month ago and I'm still in a boot and get it off in a week let's hope so you guys think it will hold up?

Should be fine as long as you take time to get comfortable with riding a BMX and don't do huge jumps and drops

I had the exact same break. After the boot got off for a few months I'd ride and easily sprain my ankle every now and again. Just get ready to deal with it swelling up randomly and I highly suggest riding in High Tops.

never to late to start just gotta have the passion and determination. rebuilding cardio sucks the worse thats what im personally working on but never give up

My ankle will randomly roll on flat ground. Like I just step and it rolls.

I can barely stand on one foot. Putting pants on can get sketchy.

Mostly though, it just fucking hurts.
