Never mind tRicky - imagine if you were to come up against a 9yo and get chicked!
Yeah but BMX is all over in about 30 seconds, which is about as long as a 9y.o. attention span.
BMX riders move on (or at least some of them do) - like Cadel and Robbie McEwen. I guess some top mountain bikers would have started in BMX.
By the way - did you check Fergus' bike for hidden motor?
Yes, but it was sitting on the seat in plain view.
