It all starts with the first rays of sunshine. You launch out of your bed in one jump and land on both feet. Suddenly a thought of imminent adventure appears in your mind. The idea of sun-bathed fields, green, lush woods, dirt roads that stretch between the mountainous landscape, the scent of ozone in the air, rain dampened tires rolling on the fresh, crispy asphalt, unstoppable, the dizzying rolls, both feet on the frame or in the air, the idea of cityscape, stairways to be climbed and jumped over, the idea of your face bathing in air, of sloppy boulevards with fresh painted guard rails, pathways criss-crossing parks, dark and steep alleyways, the incessant idea of freely whooshing, clanking, zipping, crackling through any landscape, rushing to catch the freedom, to be engulfed in it.
You finally enter the garage, and it’s right there, waiting in the oily air, glistening in the dark like a safely hidden gem. You can almost hear every one of its endeavours just by taking a glance at its chromed beauty. Soon after, its sprocket and spokes are turning in a dizzying whirlpool of fun, and it’s bolting down the street. Your hands are gripping the bars but you seldom even brush the brakes with your fingertips, afraid you’re going to slow down by even touching them.
And then your helmet gets clouded, a sign you’re getting near. The ramp is coming, and it’s now just a few meters away. Every day is perfect when you start it with a 360 air on your trusty BMX.
