More BMX, Please
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.
