BMX World Champs

On the twenty seventh of July, me, my brother Harrison, Mum, Dad and our friends Ben and Luke went to the BMX world championships. We went because Harrison and Ben like to do BMX. The BMX course was at the Vector Arena in Auckland city. It was really, really, really big (and that's really big).

When we got there, we had to go to the check in office, were we got tickets to see the show. As we walked in the door, there was a lady that was going to scan our tickets. Then we went through. We showed the other scanner person in the arena our tickets so he could give us a seat. Ben and Luke were there before us so it took quiet a while to find them. Finally, we found them. From our seats we had a great view and Ben and Luke were on the other side so they came to sit with us.

Then we were able to watch the race. First, we saw the junior men and then the elite woman. The dirty track they were racing on had lots on jumps, mountains and at the start the was a ramp the was about 3 meters high. When the racers started, there was a few bumpy hills that made them jump. Even though the woman were elite, the junior men did the BIGGEST jumps. The racer were from all around the globe and some had even been in the olympics! Since we were hungry, Dad went to get some hot chips. They were so yummy we all gobbled them up in seconds. My favourite New Zealand racer is Sarah Walker. She is very clever because she was racing with a broken arm and didn't even fall of!
I had a really fun time and I would like to go again.
