National team BMX riders to coach local racers

James Palmer, Alex Tougas and two-time Olympian Tony Nyhaug are coming to Abbotsford BMX to coach more than 90 kids.

Local BMXers will get some instruction from three national team members next week.

Local BMX riders will get the chance to ride with some of the country’s best racers this coming week.

James Palmer, Alex Tougas and two-time Olympian Tony Nyhaug are coming to Abbotsford BMX’s indoor facility to coach more than 90 kids during three different camps.

“It is an amazing opportunity for our local athletes to get the chance to ride with some of their heroes before they get ready for the 2017 season,” Josie McLean of Abbotsford BMX said.

The camps are full, but anyone looking to join the club can visit Abbotsfordbmx.ca or email abbotsfordbmx1@gmail.com
