Family, Friends and the Tweed Coast Community my nephew, Rusty Killick needs your support to get to the BMX World Championships in June!!!
This little champ took his training wheels off at the age of two and raced his first BMX race at his home track Nerang at the age of three!!! He's a true champ and has been dedicated to the sport ever since. After an epic performance at the BMX Australia National Championships in Perth last month, he was noticed by BMX Australia and has been given the opportunity to represent Australia in the 7yr boys 20 Inch Challenge Class at the 2018 UCI BMX World Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan.
But my brother and sister in law are feeling the pinch after just returning from Perth from the National titles, and with only eight weeks notice to save and plan, they need your support to get Rusty on the World stage to represent Australia and his home town in the Tweed Shire.
Asking for help of this kind is something our family don't do often, but it's not every day you get a letter in your inbox asking you to represent Australia on the World stage! When my brother-in-law called to tell me the news I was stoked!!! These guys spend hours on the M1 every week to get Rusty to training at Ashmore and Nerang, and if anyone deserves this opportunity it's our little champ Rusty. When he found out he had been selected he was straight on his bike training and started doing extra chores around the house for pocket money and even turned down a trip to time-zone after helping a neighbour move some rocks, rather choosing five dollars to put towards his trip.
We are so proud of our nephew and if you have a spare dime to support Rusty's trip we would be truly grateful!
Cheers, Braeden and Nikeea.
Rusty at the age of three at his first race!
Rusty thrives when he is surrounded by his family and friends
Racing with his sister Isla-Mae in New Zealand with his Great Grandparents by his side supporting them every step of the way x
Racing isn't always serious and every race and every trip is always an adventure for the kids!
Me and the little champ!
