HCC Rider Medals (Twice) at Ontario Summer Games

Congrats to HCC member Adam Johnson for winning two silver medals in BMX at the Ontario Summer Games, one in the individual event and one in the relay.

He looked strong in the first moto then was bringing up the rear on the second and third motos. However in the main he had the race of his life. He was grouped with 12 and 13 year olds even though he is only 11, because of when his birthday is.

He got lane three in the start gate which is towards the inside, which he prefers. He got a great start and rode a good line through the turns and jumps. He was focused and aggressive. A group of three built a lead and widened the gap on the rest of the pack. He finished strong. It was an exciting race to watch.

He then went on to have another excellent ride with his six-person relay team.  He wasn’t the favorite going in to the race and really had to work for it.  It was a very rewarding medal for him.
