We had a great BMX Pro for a Week YMCA Camp run this summer with 10 weeks straight. We’re grateful for the YMCA of San Diego’s faith in us to deliver high-quality programming. We’ve enjoyed tremendous growth and not only expanded in the number of Y’s in the county we work with but also in the number of campers each week. We thank both our regulars and our newcomers for their support. We have an 86% retention rate on campers and we love it when they bring siblings, cousins and friends. It is through many strategic partnerships that we continue to grow and serve more kids in our local communities. Thanks to all for taking part and we look forward to growing together.
Since July’s UCI World Championships in Rock Hill, our US Junior Team have kept busy on the race front all summer long. Noah Ramos and Payton Ridenour took wins at the Mile High Nationals in Colorado and just a few weeks later Kamren Larson took wins both days up in Washington at the Lumberjack Nationals.
On the State Championships side of things, Payton won her State/Gold Qualifier over in Pottstown, PA with Noah and Kamren both winning out west at the Tangent Pro/Am in Northern California in their respective classes. Kamren also made the Pro/Am Main event in a deep class of 36 riders, which is a big stepping stone in the larger picture mixing it up with some of the world’s best Elite riders.
Colin Whittington who has been focusing on school for the first part of the summer is easing back into race mode getting on the podium at the Las Vegas Nationals and coming in 2nd at this weekend’s States race in Lake Perris, CA.
