Guys I dont know where to begin,
First and the most important I want to thank my Wife She has stuck by my side with BICYCLES like no other woman I know would, Little history our family started in 2000 volunteering at our local track & racing bmx nationals 2 of those years one of my child earned 20,000 point club 2 years in a row along with many state ,redline, district and NAG plates. In 2005 My family and a group of parents built Freedom bmx track with my wife being resposible for the paperwork while she was in school full time . In 2010 she let me start a Local bike shop here in town again dealing with all the paper work. With that we have 4 children of our own with many foster children coming in and out of our house thru those 12 years.
There is more but i dont want to bore you guys i think you get the idea.
