last year, i was not as motivated to ride as i was in the years before. this was a whole new experience for me, because after all, bmx has been my main leisure time activity for the past 6 years.
i felt frustrated with my progress (or lack thereof), with the options for riding i had (spots, skateparks…) and with riding alone most of the time. this resulted in me riding only seldomly. it was weird not to ride every single time i had some spare time. i felt like i couldn’t identify myself with being a rider anymore. that was a strange feeling!
maybe i needed this little break. in 2010 i was hella motivated again. i have no idea where this motivation came from, but i’m glad it finally came back.
i put together a little edit of my riding. of course, because i didn’t ride much for a year (and maybe aswell because i’m getting older and more scared ;)), i’m not seeing as much progress as i was wishing to see. but still, i love riding and i’m proud of the things i have learned. thus, i wanted to share my footage with everyone who is interested.
