How does it feel to build up a new Speedco bike? Jayce Cunning: It feels great. Building up my latest Teal Speedco was super exciting as it is my favourite colour of the Speedco’s and I was fortunate enough to be in Florida with the Speedco team whilst building that one. It is always super exciting to get a fresh bike that is new and shiny.
Does anybody need to help to get the bike together and tuned in? Jayce Cunning: My latest bike I built on my own but had moral support from my Team mate’s Anderson Souza, Rico Bearman and Team manager Derek Betcher, haha.
Is the personal tool box well equipped? Jayce Cunning: I’d say it's well equipped, I got what I need to rebuild my entire bike. Nothing more, nothing less.
Do you take your competition racing machine to the trails?
The borders were open again, so I filled the van with some bikes for a roadtrip to Romain Mahieu his compound (with a little pitstop in Monaco). This is video #1 where I ride at Romain's place, 'Le Chofo'. Make sure to check back later for the next videos!
Riders from six countries finally felt the excitement that you only experience standing still behind the start gate, listening to the familiar “Riders ready, watch the gate… PI-PI-PI, BAM”. BMX Race Ljubljana was a great success, with great racing in all age groups and great battles between Hungarian Bence Bujáki and German Axel Webster. “We’re so happy to be back racing,” was one of the most commonly expressed sentences during the race weekend in BMX Park Ljubljana. Riders from Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy and of course Slovenia should have been on the Olympic break right now, but instead they only had the first race of the season. Eager for racing they showed great performance and very close battles on two completely different races.
