I’ve known both Izzy and Mia for over a year now and any riding trip wouldn’t be the same without them – their passion for riding is insane. They are so eager to learn and progress, making them two of the best female riders in the country. Although sometimes they can both get disheartened that it’s more difficult for them to learn tricks, I think that it can sometimes motivate them even more to try new things.
I thoroughly believe that these two girls are just what this sport needs to become more open and welcoming to female riders. NASS have a girls comp for The Worlds this year, which should inspire even more girls to get into BMX.
Izzy and Mia both have the same passion as any other BMX rider has for the sport, wanting to ride all day every day and push themselves. So watch out lads, they’re coming for you…
