Connor Spaulding ’17 has been riding BMX for almost five years.
“It’s been about four years since I’ve started but I have been riding competitively for only a year now,” says Spaulding.
BMX, the competitive motor bike sport, is something that was introduced to Spaulding by a friend.
“It was actually my friend Dakota who introduced me to it. He took me to a race and I have loved it ever since,” says Spaulding.
Riding BMX has proved to be a large commitment to Spaulding who practices at least once a week.
“Then on the weekend I ride in one or two competitive races,” says Spaulding.
“I really like doing BMX because I like the competitive edge it has to it and I love winning in races,” comments Spaulding. “I also like that I get to travel around Colorado. I just competed in a race in Grand Junction. I go to Colorado Springs a lot and I hope to start doing races outside of Colorado too,” says Spaulding.
Racing isn’t just a hobby for Spaulding; it’s something that Spaulding hopes to continue to keep up with.
“I definitely want to continue to race in college, it will always be a part of my life in some way or another,” says Spaulding.
