El Paso BMX Racing

but as abc 7’s luke lyddon shows us– bmx racing takes speed to a whole new level. nats: “bikes riding.” “when am on the gate, when i hear the cadence go, its my, i get tunnel vision, so i am focused getting one, staying straight as possible, trying not to crash.” “i get to ride with al my friends and um, you can jump things and do different straightaways.” nats: “bik jumping in the air.” the desert downs bmx track is the oldest track in all of texas– nats: “bike passing by.” and it has a lan for racers of all ages. nats: “i got starte when i was 3, my grandpa couldn’t really keep me in place, so he put me on a bike, and ever since then i really fell in love with the sport.” nats: “not a l of girls do it, it’s kinda motivating, like i can be the best girl out of all these girls, because it’s just like really cool.” standup “the best part about this sport is that anyone can do it. whether you are a boy or girl or just tall and awkward like myself it is proof that it can be down. and it’s a lot harder than it looks.” nats most of the racers spend weeks at a time training for state tournaments– and a chance to get their name and el paso on the map. nats: a growing sport in the borderland that isn’t slowing down anytime soon. “it’s like roller coaster, like you get adrenaline rushed. when the gate drops you are just in a whole different universe.” luke lyddon, abc 7.
