Harrison’s holidays

During my holidays I was lucky enough to be selected to be part of the Great Britain squad to travel to Zolder in Belgium for the Bmx world championships. The weather was really hot and the track was inside “Spa” Formula 1 race circuit and we parked on the race track.
Daddy had told me that there was a big first jump and decided that if I wanted to do well I would have to jump it. In practice I hopped in and out of it a couple of times and then just went for it!
When it came to race day I cleared the jump and was leading my first race of the championships. I had a Japanese rider, 2 Belgiuns, Chech Republic, Netherlands,Spanish, and a Columbian. I finished 2nd in my first 3 races but made a mistake in the knockout stages and unfortunately got knocked out. I had a really great time and my best Bmx buddy became world champion!

When we got home I raced at the British championships, I won my first race and made it all the way to the semi finals against all the best British riders. I’ve had a great season except for a few crashes. I have signed for a new team next year and have a new sponsor, so I’m already excited about next season. Hope you all had a great Holiday!
