History of BMX, year 2021.
Dear followers of this website. I have to tell you all that this year, 2021, will be the last year that I write about the History of BMX and other things concerning BMX. I have been in BMX wordwide since I got involved in this great sport in 1974 and decided to finish up my activities in this year. I have reported on among others, the Olympic Games since the beginning in 2008, in 2012, 2016 and 2020 would have been the 4th. Olympics I should have written about. Due to a world wide pandamic ...Covid-19, the 2020 Olympics were postponed and as it stand now, the Olympics will go on in 2021. For me it's a good time to leave it up to the next generation to report and write about BMX world-wide developing from 2022 on.
There still is a lot to update on my website from the beginning up till 2021. I will continue that work with pleasure. Wishing you all the best for the future and enjoy reading the University of BMX website.
Cheers, Gerrit Does
