BMX: "Training to Win" ambassador among the world's fastest BMX riders

PHOTO 2022 07 26 19 11 40The Training to Win project team has the world's 7th fastest BMX rider! Our ambassador Renārs Auga reached the finals of the BMX World Championship, which took place in the French city of Nantes, winning 7th place in the cruiser M17-24 competition. "I really liked the track - it's my style, technical, one that requires a lot of work. There was huge support in the stands, Latvians shouted. Luck helped, but it also has to be earned. The start failed in the semi-final. A couple of drivers had a crash, while I made a maneuver at the right moment and went fourth on the last straight, making it to the final. In the final, I drove from the seventh track, although I really wanted the eighth, so that there is no one next to me on one side. I was squeezed at the start, but in the turn I made a maneuver again and managed to "bite" one participant. The main goal was to reach the final. I have repeated my better result and keep the title of the 7th fastest driver in the world for another year." Renars, You are our joy, pride, example and inspiration for the whole BMX family! You are the best!
