Start of the Race
Tyler, Age 14, Rockbridge, OH

Sitting on the line, heart pumping
The roaring of engines all around
Adrenaline flowing into your veins
Sliding the goggles into your helmet, pull the strap over
The starter walks out and waves the blue flag
The roaring engines slowly die out
Announcers run through the names of riders
You hear your name and you get even more excited
The blue flag is raised to the starter's side
The announcer yells 10 seconds
The green flag flies up through the air
You kick over your bike
You and 30 others race for the first turn
When you're the first one to emerge
You are ecstatic.
