Arabella started BMX in January 2021 during COVID lockdown and joined the Brixton BMX Club in April.  She participated in her first London interclub race in September 2021 at the age of 6 years old.

The comradery of the Brixton team and the thrill of racing has made her focus her sights on racing at a regional level and is currently training 2-3 days a week with the club. BMX racing is dominated by male riders but Brixton has a fantastic female coach that has inspired Arabella and given her a role model to look up to.

This is Arabella with Ken Floyd who founded the Brixton track and club in 1981. In the lead up to the club's 40th birthday, he has been developing a plan that will improve the BMX facility.  The plan includes a new track surface, improved drainage, a new container with more bikes, water,  electricity and new pathways.  It includes a better and safer start hill, some landscaping, new fence and signage. 

The 3 phases of the project costs £110k and the club is trying to raise the funds to cover the first phase of the work which will cost £30k.  The kids that race for Brixton are happy to get involved and help to raise the awareness of the project and the funds to improve their track.  

Arabella is looking to raise £1,000 for her club and we welcome any donations to the cause.  Thank you for your support for BMX!
