It is a big deal, and here is why, the younger riders look up to people, (older, faster riders, in BMX), now if they see someone they want to emeulate, it keeps them interested. Now Brett raced enough of the series that he qulaified, he was one of the people lining up on the gate, in a race that generally had all the riders attention. Now no plate because of an accident, at which point I don’t think the plate was on his mind. However earlier in the day they awarded Greg Morgan a plaque for all of his BMX accomplishments, most of which were when he was 13-17. So how is it that a guy races a series, has a crash, and can’t get anything, but something you do 8 years ago will get you something? Something to think about.
