Sasha Pardoe, a year 9 student at Kinver High, has recently returned from an all-expenses paid trip and entry in to the 'Simple Session', a major international BMX event in Estonia. She was competing against the top international female professional riders all of them more than 4 years older than her.
Unfortunately, it was not her day even though her runs were very clean the seasoned pro competitors had the edge. Sasha has found the competition as a fantastic learning platform and I’m sure she will use this experience in her favour.
