a sad day in bmx

i was riding my towns park last night and a new kid that must have been around 13 showed up with a brand new bike. This kid had never ridden before and had no idea what he was doing, but that's not the problem though.

This kid had explained to me how he saved his money over winter to buy this bike just so he could try riding in the parks. He bought his bike from Canadian Tire and it was obvious he had no real guidance from an experienced individual.

After hanging out at the park for about 15 minutes some other kids showed up and began to make fun of this guy for buying a Canadian Tire bike. This kid was really hurt, no matter what he tried to say or do these other kids would just bully him down. In the end this kid just left the park and never even got to try any of the ramps.

I rode up with him and just got an idea of who he was and i can say this poor kid was really hurt by the bullying he just received. The end result was i gave him my cell number and hes gonna call me when ever he goes out so we can hook up and ride together.

I just hope some other guys on here read this and understand that everyone starts out somewhere in a sport, bullying and victimizing an individual just because there new at something is not cool. every single person on this forum started out just like this kid.

Just thought some people might appreciate this.

Cheers.

Its not always about how good of a rider you are or how good your bike is. some(Correction Most) kids have over-inflated egos.

dont know if you got the news flash brah but bmx is for kids who wanna be radical between soccer and basketball practice and be the best at what they do and talk shit on anyone they dont know even they've only been around a minute.

on the real though, i hate seeing that non sense if ya see that shit again embarass the hardassses, call their shit in front of everyone, they will shut up and go to the other side of the park and not pull that shit anymore or atleast when you arent around.

5/18/2011 8:09 AM

you sick man, this is what i wish everyone was like (i mean every single person, not jus every rider). Its hard when youre new, i used to get hollered at by kids cuz i used to ride a shitty mongoose but once the good riders called em out about how long they had been riding and shit they never said anything. Make sure next time youre their you call those kids out on their shit, and they'll prolly leave him alone.

+10 respect hahaha

in peru is the exact opposite, when a newbie comes to the park, everybody starts to talk to him and teach him basic stuff, but if he is an asshole we just ignore him

i'm glad NC isn't like that.

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?

that's deep bro. some kid broke his hyper bike chain so i gave him my 30$ kmc710SL and switched back to a KMC heavy.
felt bad for the kid, he saved up forever to get it then the chain snapped 2 days later, and he was gonna quit because people made fun of him, so i rode with him for a couple days and now he loves bmx again. but, when i was like 12 i always skated at my local park after school before anyone got there, then in summer i was afraid to actually do stuff because i felt weird. so i quit. but luckily that just ended up in me doing bmx.

Lots of respect, bro. Takes balls to stand up for someone like that.

|

5/18/2011 3:25 PM

nice, I cant stand people who just brag about how good they are and try to act like no one is deserving of them...

|

5/18/2011 4:22 PM

Thanks. I don't even go to my local anymore, because nearly everybody their is like those kids, the only reason i haven't quit is because of some good friends, with backyard parks.
