One of the many reasons I’m glad I grew up ABA. There is no incentive to stay down a class. I wanted to work my way up to expert more than anything. I moved up to intermediate within my first 9 races and then struggled to turn expert but I did it.
Dale, who was that guy you used to race named Barry Sliefert or something like that? He was a career novice wasn’t he? Winning all the races he could and then sandbagging when he got close to turning ex. What a loser.
I’d like to think BMX appeals to people that want to challenge themselves and see how far they can push themselves. Not for people that want an easy win to feel better about themselves.
22 national finishes for a 17 rookie. Can you say loser?
