Two BMX Riders Lead the WayAt the Mike Sedar BMX Track, two teenagers found themselves at the top and out of the gates.
"Most people are pretty nervous and I'm definitely one of them...just trying to relax and think about it. I try not to over work myself," Sara Stowe said.
"I started when I was 8 years old," Shannon Bowles said. "I had two cousins that raced at the time and I was bored of sitting there and watching them."
Riding a bike wasn't natural to Shannon Bowles and Sara Stowe, but they aren't afraid to be honest about it.
"I was really awful. I would crash on like every single jump. I took like 15 minutes to do a lap, but I just stuck to it," Bowles said.
"I was not good at all," Stowe said. "I was behind the boys so much like two straights ahead of me and now I'm right up there with them, beating some of them."
Stowe's a beginner and with friendly fire, aiming for Bowles at an 11 time, 1st place District rider and international competitor.
"I know if Sara beat me one day, my Dad would be so mad. It's nice to have someone there who like you always got to keep going, keep making yourself better because if you don't someone is always going to catch you," Bowles said.
