We Love BMX Tour pedals off in Tobago

The tour will see stops throughout Tobago this week at Signal Hill Secondary (today), Scarborough Secondary (tomorrow), Bishop’s High (Thursday), Pentecostal Light and Life High (Friday) before shifting to Trinidad where they will visit International School of Port of Spain (March 13), Princes Town West Secondary (March 14), Fatima College (March 15), Mucurapo East (March 16), Queen’s Royal College (March 17) and the Brian Lara Promenade (March 17).

Mason Hall students were treated to a Flatland show featuring TT’s very own Keegan Alves and Kestrel Roopnarine as well as David Peraza (USA) and Romell Bourne (Barbados).

Bourne, 29 years old, said he was delighted to be a part of promoting the sport in the Caribbean.

“I’m enjoying it really good. This is a really good initiative. We don’t do anything like this in Barbados so coming in Trinidad to push BMX is really a good thing. The amount of kids we’re coming into contact with is amazing. It’s very exciting to come showcase my skills,” he said.

I don’t like team sports because of a bad experience. But through video games I did skate boarding, roller blading but had more creative freedom in BMX.” Hall, TT’s first BMX freestyler, thanked his sponsors and those who’ve assisted in making this year possible.

He hailed the new generation of BMX freestylers and likes the direction the sport is heading.

“The schools are the core market.

We’ve seen significant growth and our focus has always been with the kids. What we’re pushing is our message and engage them to let them know it’s something to stay focused. Keegan’s been inspiring a lot of the up and comers. In July (last year) he placed first in a (NASS) contest in the UK,” he pointed out.

“We’re real happy that Paramount is on board. The ramp is the most difficult to move around but now it’s possible to go around the schools and get kids to see the sport.
