Hey guys, Just a little update so the last few months I have been racing with Dursley and Corsham and doing training with lee Dunham unfortunately I have missed a few sessions with him, I'm enjoying racing its a very different experience to just riding with friends. I haven't really pushed myself with my racing until I did a rut training session! That built my confidence so much that on my next race I went and and give it all getting my best overall finish. I finished Dursley championship 11th and have one more race to do with Corsham. I'm looking forward to what my future holds with MX and really looking forward to the winter with lots of wet practice for some reason I enjoy it more when it's wet. Thank you to everyone that has been supporting me for the last year and being there on the track side.

Hey.... so over the last few months I have been getting more confidence over the weeks and starting to attend lots of different tracks some are my favourite and some are my least favourite but it pushes me every time.

I have finally started racing mum and dad said to do it next year but I really wanted to give it a go this year so they booked me in and I really enjoyed it, I'm now a member of Corsham & Dursley race clubs. I have a great mx team of friends and we have great fun on and off the track. My last race I attended my seat came off but that didn't stop me i carried on without it and finished the race.

I have recently started to attend Lee Dunham for training and even though I have only done 3 sessions so far I feel I have learnt a lot.

Want to say a massive thanks to everyone that stands track side and supports me and an bigger thanks to my dad & mum that makes all this happen for me!!

Thank you to Lynne and Lisa x

Since lockdown has lifted I have been out every weekend on my bike trying new tracks out I have been trying to attend a lot of Thornbury MX tracks and I'm hoping to do my first race in the up coming weeks. I have still been riding cheddar MX track and riding with bigger bikes to build up my confidence and learn new things. Since having the big wheel kit on my bike I have improved so much on my corner speed and riding other tracks has helped me loads with my confidence. I'm looking forward to a private hire I got coming up with all my MX friends and family. Thank you for my mum & dad and all my friends and family for the support at the track, and a thank you to Lisa & Lynne

Hey, since my last one we have still been in lock down but with the count down on till the tracks open back up I cannot wait. I can see my MX friends and get some proper riding in.

I have been going out a lot on my OSET and BMX spending a lot of times at the pump tracks. And enjoyed the snow on my OSET that was lots of fun

My dad has managed to get me out on my Motocross bike a few times but it’s not the same as being at the track with all my friends riding. I have a new kit helmet and boots ready to get back out. Me and my dad have also got new graphics so they will be going on my bike this week.

Roll on April to get back out. #58

So since my last update I have managed to get out on my bike it has definitely been wet rides at chedder but certainly has made it more fun, I also attended a indoor track for a training day with my MX friends at the start I didn’t enjoy it to much as some things I found hard but by the end of the training day I had learnt new skills and was getting round the track with no problems, I’m hoping to attend it again start of this year but all depends with the COVID-19 restrictions .

For Christmas I asked for a OSET so when tracks are closed I can still get out and get more bike experience I was very lucky and woke up Christmas day to one, since Christmas day I have been out most days on it the wetter out the better and now since the MX track has closed for a while I can still get out and have lots of fun and learn more skills.

With the lockdown I have been at home playing MX games on my Xbox and also playing with my toy bikes my mum and dad spent a few days working hard on making me a MX track for my toy bikes its amazing and I get hours of fun out of it.

Hope everything eventually gets back to normal in 2021 and I can get back out on the track all weekend every weekend.

Hey so in the last month i have been really working on my speed and corner speed and also what lines to follow on the track ( with my dads help) I have never been a fan of riding in the wet but as we are coming up to the winter I don't have much choice as I want to be out on my bike all the time so last weekend was perfect time for me to get out and give it a go and it turns out I did amazing and actually enjoyed it a lot more.

So I have been building up the courage ready to complete my first race but unfortunately the dates fell on the same weekend I'm on holiday with my family so I'm going to take this as a positive and get lots of practice in now ready for next years racing it will also give me something to look forward to.

I can't wait to get back out on the track and make my mum and dad proud but most of all myself each week I'm seeing more and more improvement in my riding since getting rid of my mini and getting the Ktm sx.

I have made a great Mx family and we support and encourage each other, we make lots of memories not only on track but also off,

I can't Thank my sponsors lynne & Lisa enough for supporting my journey and giving me the boost of confidence I needed when telling me you wanted me as part of your team but also a massive thanks to my mum and dad for supporting my hobby and spending all weekend every weekend at the track teaching and encouraging me when riding I have my no1 fans by my side.

Hey, I am 5 years old and have just started back at school after lock down and half term. I am now in year 1. I’m going to miss the odd days in the week riding my MX bike but I will make this time up with riding my BMX. I also now have every weekend to look forward to out on my MX bike at the tracks and riding with all my friends. I am bike mad, if I’m not out riding I’m at home watching it on telly or playing with toy bikes. My dad has just helped me put all my new graphics on my new bike so I now have my name and number #58. I am looking forward to riding Minchinhampton again and to keep exploring new tracks, I am super excited for next year when I can start racing and also hoping by the end of 2022 I will be on a 65. But It will happen in the right time. I was first introduced to motocross by my grandad and dad, my grandad was bike mad just like myself and did it growing up along with racing, I’m sure I’m making him super proud and would love for him to see my progress in my hobby we both loved! I just want to say again a massive thankyou to Lynne & Lisa for this opportunity at TDF. Excited to see what my future holds in MX Kobi #58
