December has been a super quiet month for me. I have managed to ride twice. Me and my riding friends went to a indoor training day at wheeldon mx. I got to practice some tight inside line corner skills. We have rebooked for February giving us something to look forward to. And then a very wet cheddar mx just before tier restrictions closed them.
For Christmas I asked for some camo print tyres for my bmx and a new nitro circus stunt scooter. Im so lucky I also had 2 new mx kits! The mx tracks have been closed, so since then I have been out on my oset in the woods and on my bmx at the skate park.
2021 I look forward to the tracks opening up and weekends away in our new race camper.

In the last 6 weeks I have been lucky enough to change my bike, I now have a 2020 tc50, which has helped me gain so much more confidence.
I attended my second kids r us race meet with Tom Arnold, the track was wet and tough. Ruts were huge! (Thankfully dad kept my big wheel kit on) I mastered the start gates!! (which was my mums fear) Each time I was out of the gate and front of the pack on the first corner, but couldn’t hold that position the faster boys got past me.
I loved camping for the weekend with my friends and the whole racing experience. I finished 5/6 races, 17th place, got a trophy and came home with a smile!
I have recently had my 5th birthday, I am so lucky I had an Oset, which will give me some winter riding time. Being 5 now means I can ride on the main tracks most places, just over a year until I can start racing! Practice practice & have fun!
The last 4 weeks i haven’t been able to ride as the tracks are closed due to lockdown again. I’ve used this time to ride my bmx & oset at the local pump tracks. Hopefully in December myself & my usual riding friends will get to go on the private hire coaching day we have planned. If no we are hoping for a fun filled 2021 with TDF 🤙🏼

Since joining TDF I’ve had a busy 2 weeks, my first day at primary school & experienced my first race. I raced at Tom Arnold’s kids r us weekend. For me it was a taste of what racing will be like when I’m 6. I have a year to practice my race starts & corner speed to keep up with the faster boys. The overall experience for me was one to remember and I got my first ever trophy! I went with my dad, and my friends Blake & Camron. Mum, dad & Nana we’re so proud of me, my overall position was 21st/31. My goal for the next one in October is to beat that position. So until then I will practice for that. Right now I am in turkey enjoying my first family holiday of the Covid year, I have learnt to swim without armbands and had a ride on a jetski with my dad. Looking forward to meeting the rest of the TDF squad on the 27th at cheddar #tdfsouthwest #jaxon534

My name is Jaxon Bishop, I am 4 years old I have always been bike mad, starting with a balance bike & a BMX. I got my first motorbike (PW50) when I was 3, just for fun riding in fields. During lockdown this year i got back on my PW, and my dad realised I was ready for something a little bigger and faster. So we upgraded pretty quick. I now ride a TC50 husqvarna, which I’ve been riding for 3 months. I have gained so much confidence in the 3 months that I have been riding tracks. I practise every weekend at cheddar Motopark it’s local to us and I am familiar with the track. I have also had the chance to ride at Minchinhampton BWL MX Westonzoyland Tchorek mx Blacs trax MX academy I am about to join my first race next week at Southam Mx kids r us day with Wilden mxc. I am only 4 months into riding a bike so this is still new to me and us as a family. My mum & dad are super proud and very grateful to be given this opportunity with Tommos Dream Foundation. Thank you Lisa & Lynne
