We Love BMX Freestyle Tour came to the Brian Lara Promenade, Port-of-Spain, Friday 17th March 2017. The tour pedalled off in the sister isle of Tobago then came to Trinidad, culminating on the Brian Lara promenade.
Unlike any other sport which involves scoring a goal or beating time or breaking a record, BMX Freestyle is based on originality and creativity. While certain tricks are standard there is always opportunity to create something new.
Avid freestylers and enthusiasts got a treat from these fantastic BMX Freestylers. Johnathan Camacho from Ecuador and David Peraza from USA, had the crowd cheering for more of their mind boggling tricks. Keegan Alves and Kestrel Roopnarine our very own local talent, brought out their best and latest flat land tricks which had their fans gasping in amazement.
Trevlon Hall, TT’S first BMX Freestyler and Founder of the Trinidad and Tobago BMX Freestyle Association stated that the tour’s purpose was to discover new talent, get more kids involved, expose opportunities in the sport and promote public awareness. He said that youth involvement in sport will help promote positivity in our country. He hopes to see continued growth in the sport. He also thanked the Honourable, Darryl Smith, Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs for the support of the sport.
