Published

So what does 5 time BMX World Champion Saya Sakakibara do when she’s running late for the dance? She hops on her BMX racing bike and sprints across town, that’s what!! 😉

This fun video features the Australian Elite BMX pro as she lost track of time and almost forgot about the school dance. luckily her mom reminded her. From the time on the clock it looks like she only had 15mins to get there on time so she changed real quick, text her back telling him “I’m always On Time” knowing she didn’t really have a way to get there. Then she looks back, sees her bike and boom!! Great idea…Just ride the bike to the dance!!!! Just to be safe Saya puts on her helmet, knees pads, elbow pads and gloves and races through town, sprinting and doing manuals. And how could she resist stopping by the local BMX track for a quick lap….gotta get that training in when you can 😉 After that she makes it to the red carpet of the dance right on time and of course gets the valet to park her bike. Nice!! We like these fun videos that feature BMX racers!

Be on the lookout for Saya Sakakibara as she competes in the UCI BMX World Cup series this year in the Elite Women’s class. Saya and her brother Kai both race BMX and ther’re aiming to become the first brother and sister duo to represent Australia in BMX, at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Stay tuned!!

Tomorrow the next installment of the Red Bull Pump Track World Championship Qualifier goes down at WallRide Park in Hyderbad, India!! Here’s a little preview of the track.

About WallRide Park:
“Pump track in Hyderabad – when Indian Kids get to ride. When the city of Hyderabad in India wanted to support the growing interest in cycling, the WallRide park was conceived in partnership with Velosolutions. Months later, the pump track in Hyderabad is built and gets everyone to ride. From first time riders to pro’s. The WallRide park consists of the first skate park in the state of Telengana and the first ever asphalt pump track in India. Very few people were even aware of what a pump track was when the project was first conceived but since the park has opened word is spreading fast. The residents of Hyderabad have embraced the opportunity and are discovering the joy of a new sport.”
