Thanksgiving break was no rest for Windsor Central Middle School 6th grader Corbin Evans. He competed against the best BMX racers in the world at the 2018 USA BMX Grands in Tulsa, Oklahoma, an event that included riders from Australia and China.
“It was fun,” said Evans. “It’s entertaining. I like the competition.”
Evans competed against those his age in the 20” and Cruiser divisions. He’s been riding since he was five years old. He is part of the Ridin’ Revolutions team, which also includes other Windsor students. You can read more about them here
“I’ll probably keep riding through high school and never stop riding,” said Evans.
Evans didn’t advance to the finals of the USA BMX Grands but has set reaching the finals as a goal for next year. He is currently riding in a winter series at Grippen Park in Endicott, which offers indoor racing. He says improving is a matter of riding and practicing more.
“And then winning,” said Evans.
