Youth win BMX state championships


 

N-BMX-2015Two Cedar Springs siblings won the BMX state championships and a third sibling came in third.

The Michigan BMX state championships were held on September 13, at Rock City BMX in the Art Van Sports Complex in Rockford. Noah Salisbury, 13, Abbey Salisbury, 11, and sister, Marley, 7, the children of Charlie and Tracy Salisbury, all performed well at the finals.

Noah, an 8th grader at Cedar Springs Middle School, who also plays tailback for the 8th grade Red Hawks football team, won both the 13 Expert and the 13 Cruiser class.

N-BMX2Abbey, a sixth grader at Red Hawk Elementary, won all of her races and took her 6th consecutive state champion honor.

Marley, 7, is just getting started racing, and rode hard to finish 3rd for the season.

Noah and Abbey also raced in the Indiana State Championship race on September 19, and won that race, too. However, according to Charlie, they cannot be Indiana State Champions, since they already have the title of Michigan State Champions, and are only allowed that distinction in one state.

Congratulations to all three of you!
