Why can’t people just have fun instead of being all political about everything? It makes me angry to see how low some people will dip when it comes to making different things happen and trying to be creative.
I’m usually the cool guy in the corner but I must put my 2 cents into this stupid drama.
People need to be open and stay that way, I hate it when people say help us with this and when you try to they look at you like you stupid. I don’t like it when people don’t see how one person’s idea makes such a big difference, and they make a big deal over doing a few extra things to help make it work. Everything that happens at race events should really be up to the racers racing in it, not the stupid people who overlook everything and try to say they know everything when they barely remember how to ride a bike down the street. When’s the last time you came to a track, put some gear on, and raced like every 4 and under rookie you see at the locals, to the Super-X and Elite men you only see at thee most exclusive events…..
That’s what I thought.
I’ve had more fun this year than any years in my past due to NJ series this year, both watching and racing. This Pro-am series that we do is all about the fun of the sport, testing, and showcasing your abilities on the track with some of the regions(not just New Jersey’s) finest racers. If it was not for the Hyper series people like Matt Kelty, myself, and other racers from as far as Virginia(Mr. Donnel), would more likely not even come or race at any of the Nj series races, what would the point be, just more practice? Anybody knows thats not anything we need to travel for.
Plus, more younger riders come to race and more parents come to watch. Everyone, including the track itself benifits.
Everything Brett has had to say to me has been positive without a doubt and to push some one like him away from this sport only shows how selfish people really can be. I would rather have him for the NJ bmx president than whoevers is that person. I don’t care how powerfull you may be, disrespecting people who make a daily difference should be heard, not silenced and looked down towards. If you are not in this for fun get the hell out and let those who are lead the way, or join in on the fun and stop being political about everything.
And to Brett, this idea that you and other people had was one of the best things you could have presented. If you, as one of the people who started this and as a person I highly support and respect do not show up at the State Championships, I WILL NOT EITHER. No amount of money I could leave with from a point series or race win could ever add up to your contributions to this sport, especially in New Jersey. But, I would rather see you there but not so I can be there, but so a point can be proven that you are not going to be unheard. You fought for us all year, don’t stop doing it now.
But go a head and take your break, but the race you come back at should be the State Championships. Your idea personally helped me a lot more than you ever know, if not for this idea you had, I would not be where I am now. I learned how to walk again in the rehab center after my accident. After that and a few years of doing nothing, practice and the Hyper Pro-am series taught me how to race again. If not for this event to come and race at I would not be a good as I am now.

I am but sometimes you just have to speak up instead of watch it unfold.

if you sit and let this just unfold . BMX WILL GO RIGHT BACK TO WHERE IT WAS IN THE TOILET. Just where Janeen and Linda and Morgan want it. That way they can skim the floaters. They need to go!September 17, 2007 at 11:23 pm #50335
This is just an add on to this topic. This is the exact reason why I don’t have a hometrack for next season, except it’s the townships politics over the people who say that they want to make it fun but only listen to themselves and hate n’ block out those with better idea’s that their own.

That attitude is what got your current state of BMX Dave.
Dave, you posted on here for two weeks how racing sucks and it’s too much money and all that bullshit.
But come saturday, there you were.
Put up man.
If you say you don’t believe in it don’t fund it.
I support racers and riders either way, but if you say you are going to not do something then back it up.
MAKE A STAND FOR WHAT IS RIGHT FOR EVERYONE.
I expect everyone to race that championship who busted their ass to get there and I also expect everyone to begin to speak their mind DIRECTLY to those in charge when they are not happy with things.
It makes a difference.
Maybe 30-40 top riders banded together for a cause can make a difference in this sport.
Race the race Bob, you earned the spot, and you have everyone here’s respect.
I leave the ball in your court, so to speak…for now.September 18, 2007 at 12:31 am #50338

Friendships start and grow with or without racing lets not ruin anything just cause Dave does not want to race. He is a big boy he can handle himself let him go his path if he ever needs help he know who to go to
