Sarasota Riders Make Headlines

Sarasota BMX has been building champions for decades. The two most recent riders to step up to the next level are both only 10 years old. Amanda "Ponytails" Taylor and Wildon "Poison" Ivey are Expert riders who have made headlines with their dazzling displays of riding skill.

It's always nice to see young riders get recognized. These two in particular are a blast to watch so it was great to see their photos appear in print. Wildon Ivey, who has recently been signed to the All Tow Factory team, appeared in the latest issue of PULL Magazine. Meanwhile Amanda Taylor was the subject of a full story in the June 18th edition of the Herald-Tribune newspaper.

Sarasota BMX is supremely proud of its riders. If you want to see these future superstars in action, come by the track any Friday night at 8pm for some high speed BMX racing.
