Coming back into the scene a few years one of the first riders I noticed was this young dude jamming with some killer style and a long mane of blonde hair flowing out of his helmet. Turns out, the little dude was Victor Behm. Nowadays Vic is seen all the time in NJBMX Szine and on the site. The other staple was Vic’s mom and dad always chilling with him. I got to talk to little Vic’s dad a bit before a race last year at EHT, this guy really believed in BMX and his son. You’d see him dropping gates and helping out at CJ all the time and was for quite some time an EHT mainstay. A lot of things have gone on in the past couple years in our drive to get BMX racing back to where we all believe it should be. When things like this happen everyone should pull back from the gate, take a breath and realize what we should all be trying to do in the long run.
Grow BMX as big as possible.
Take 5 and realize how lucky we are that we can get up tomorrow, hug the people we love, bust the chops of those we call friend, and get on our bikes and take a ride.
In fact let’s all go take a ride for Victor and his family, I’m sure that’s what he’d want.
