My name is Greg Lanter,... my motto “Never Too Old”, and at age 55 I Love BMX Racing!
I believe it's one of the greatest family sports of all time. It's for the whole family, girls, boys, parents, grandparents, everyone can take part in some way. There are many riders in their 50's, 60’s, and even 70's at the track. I regularly see entire families racing together having a great time. It brings families together in a day and age that it's rare to have the whole family together for anything, much less enjoying their time together. It’s a great way for children to learn sportsmanship, parents to bond with their children, and have a great time doing it. I encourage anyone with interest in BMX racing to give it a try, or just come out to the track and show your support!
I'm usually the oldest person on the track and feel slow in comparison to the younger more experienced riders, BUT I'll never give up. As long as I can ride around the track, win or lose, I will always do my best!
Many Sunday afternoons I spend watching BMX Nationals on YouTube with my parents,... I love to see them get excited over a close finish or a BIG jump! Monday and Friday evenings you'll find me racing at the local track with great friends and my family cheering me on. The physical benefits and the interest of my family and friends is what makes it so special to me.
I have to thank God for the strength, and my friends and family for their encouragement!
Without all of you it wouldn’t be possible!
Remember,... Every race is a good race!
See you at the track!
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
