More BMX, Please

Canadian Cycling Magazine - - LETTERS -

I en­joy read­ing your mag­a­zine, which is now the only ac­tual printed mag­a­zine I still buy. My fam­ily loves cy­cling. We ride road bikes, moun­tain bikes and my kids race bmx with bmx Haut-riche­lieu. We en­joy read­ing about road trips, ex­otic moun­tain bik­ing des­ti­na­tions and rid­ers. But we would also en­joy read­ing about bmx rac­ing. Your cal­en­dar sec­tion in the June/july 2018 is­sue didn’t even men­tion the Cana­dian cham­pi­onships in Drum­mondville, Que. bmx rac­ing is an ex­cit­ing sport. We have Cana­dian rid­ers who do well in­ter­na­tion­ally, not to men­tion the thou­sands of Cana­dian rid­ers from five years old and up on the lo­cal/pro­vin­cial/na­tional cir­cuits who prac­tise the sport. For some rea­son, it seems to be cy­cling’s for­got­ten kid as it gets lit­tle cov­er­age by the me­dia. I hope fu­ture is­sues of Cana­di­an­cy­cling­magazine will have some­thing for all cy­cling dis­ci­plines. Louis-philippe Dubé Saint-jean-sur-riche­lieu, Que.
