BMX evening

The boys went to their first Calgary BMX racing evening and got to check out all the 'big kids'. It was fun watching them pull on their full face helmets and get in race mode. It's gonna be happening every Tuesday evening and they are already looking forward to the session.

I took the Nikon out to the track and got some decent photos. Here's a great shot of Evan listening to one of the coaches.


And here's one of him out of the saddle mashing towards a roller.


They are going to be racing for a few hours on Sunday as well, so that's twice a week. The weather looks good and since I will probably be at the track with them maybe I should pick up a cheap BMX bike and see what kind of wattage I can kick out burning around the track. Nothing like beating a 9yr old. ;-)
