Here's to this year's BMX World Champions. Congratulations on seeing your hard work and determination pay off! You've just kickstarted the dreams of countless new riders who are headed to a bike shop today.
Here's to the future Champions. You inspire people around you by following your dreams. You may have not won medals this time, but you will always be Champions to those who look up to you.
And finally, here's to the former Champions, old school and new, whose work and love of BMX have paved the way for countless dreamers of yesterday and today. Without you ladies and gents, there would be no Champions of today to inspire the Champions of tomorrow.
