CAN WE TRUST THAT SCRUFFY GUY?
The lead coach is fully qualified (first aid, DBS check, ABCC BMX Coach, British Cycling L2 Club Coach, British Cycling L2 BMX Coach and Sports Science BSc). He sometimes bangs on about being a two time British Champ and three time UK King of Dirt but it was years ago and he needs to let it go.
Bexhill BMX track sessions are based on the latest teaching methods from British Cycling blended with some proper BMX mischief. The aim of these sessions is to build core fundamental techniques and skills. This is the same approach used with British Cycling’s top riders, whose coaches often strip back to basics. Establishing good habits and a strong foundation will enable riders to reach their potential and find their own style in their own time. The idea is not to produce identical robots but to encourage each rider to use this foundation to eventually express themselves in their own individual way. At the beginner/intermediate level we are more concerned with fundamental skills as opposed to how fast the riders can go. Most importantly, we’ll have some fun doing it. Fun is job #1.
What do I need?
You need a safe BMX bike with bar ends, no pegs, full length trousers and long sleeve top with a correctly fitted full-face helmet, gloves, knee pads and elbow pads minimum.
How do I get involved
Bexhill coaching sessions have waiting lists at the minute. To join please email your riders name, age and a basic description of their riding skills (this helps us to put them into the correct group).
