Brett, I think you hit the nail on the head!!! When an individual sees you come up and pay an entry fee to race, I think they look at you in a different light. Like you are a kid, and not like you have any life experience!!! Therefore you are given no credibilty, what you say doesn’t matter. All I want, and this has been the long term goal, is for as many kids to have the fun I had through BMX, and the friends it has given me. When I see the sad state of the sport, I think of how many are missing out!
