Travis Pastrana, #199. He is the world’s best freestyle motocross rider. He has won championships and X Games gold metals medals in a lot of events like, super cross, motocross, freestyle motocross, rally, NASCAR. Travis been riding a dirt bike since he was 4 years old, and he is now 34 years old. He was born in 1983, Oct, 8. Travis likes to ride a Suzuki.
RISK TAKER, Travis risks getting hurt every time he gets on his bike. A lot of the tricks he does on his motorbike could be very dangerous if he doesn’t land the jumps right. Some of the types of racing that he does like motor cross, is outside and weather can make the race track slippery and cause accidents.
CONFIDENT, Travis shows his confidence every time he get on his bike to do a race. Going at speeds of 30 to 40 mph doing the motor cross jumps and planning out freestyle routines that he performs takes a lot of confidence. He also has to stay focused and memorizes the track.
ENTHUSIASTIC, Travis very interested in dirt biking, and a lot of motosports. He loves taking risks and tries doing things on a dirt bike that other people say can’t be done. Travis loves trying new things on his motor bike.
Travis Pastrana is a good role model and influence on young people that whowant to learn how to ride. He gets out and helps young riders, and passes on his knowledge to fellow riders. I’d love to learn how to do some of the things he does. What a great rider!
It finally snowed!!! I got to go sledding on the weekend with my friend Jake. We went to the school near his house where there is a good hill and snow jumps. When I went I couldn’t feel my feet because I only had my running shoes on and my hands were freezing because I didn’t have any gloves – but it was still FUN! It is early for the snow to come, so it is probably going to snow a lot this winter. I want to build a big snow fort this winter if there is enough snow.
My name is Jackson. I’m 11 years old, I’m in grade 6 and I live in the Comox Valley, on Vancouver Island. This is my first blog post ever! I am very excited to start blogging this year.
One of my favourite things to do is bike. I like biking in Cumberland at the dirt jumps, the jumps are really big and I SEND IT over the jumps. I usually go with a friend, it is more fun with a friend than it is without a friend. I just bought a mini bike from a garage sale, it is very fun, I put pegs on the back so I could do manuals, and on the front, but I don’t really use the front pegs. In the summer time I do BMX racing in Cumberland and I go around Vancouver to the different BMX race tracks. I am an intermediate level, I have 10 more to win in order for me to get to expert level. I have been doing BMX for 3 years now. Everyday I go ride my mountain bike, I like riding with some of my friends, and I have been doing wheelies and learn different tricks.
I also like going to skateparks,the youth community center, the pool, and the skating rink. As you can tell, I am a pretty active kid. : )
