BMX Saved Me

Photo by Nina Davis




In April of 2013, I decided to quit my corporate job of 4 years. I was unhappy, I had no life outside of my job and I stopped riding BMX. After quitting, I spent a lot of time reacquainting myself with my bike, I had forgotten how much I loved riding. Ever since I got my Haro complete a decade ago, I never got the hang of parks, I could ride the ramps but I never really caught onto doing or learning tricks. In late June of 2013, I found myself watching a friend race and rest was life changing.

In a span of 3 months, I've collected 4 trophies, 3 plaques, 5 ribbons and a sponsor! Quitting my dead end corporate job and getting into racing has been life changing. I am so much happier these days, now that I've found a new passion, I guess in some ways an old passion rekindled.

I knew I always liked going fast, so I tried mountain biking, but I hated the rocks and logs. There's nothing more beautiful to me, than a nicely manicured track to ride on. Magnolia BMX is a reflection of my life and what I'm interested in, so thank you for following along and being so supportive. Both Rebecca and I, have big things planned ahead and we can't wait to share them with you.
