NOVA BMX Rider Spotlight
This is where we get to introduce you to some of the athletes that make up the NOVA BMX family.
For our very first Rider Spotlight, we are proud to introduce a young woman who is a fixture at our track and sets a great example for other riders, young and old!
Can you tell us a little about yourself? How long you've raced, your team?
My name is Sierra McDaniel (aka: "Hollywood"). I am 12 years old and have been racing BMX for 4 years. The class I race in is 12 Girls, I ride for Powers Bike Shop and my home track is NOVA BMX.
What would you say that you enjoy enjoy most about racing BMX? Do you have a favorite track?
My favorite part of BMX is practicing gates and spending time with my friends. The track that stands out the most to me is Oldsmar Supercross because I love the hill!
What advice would you give to kids, esp. girls, who might want to try BMX racing?
I would encourage any girl to try BMX because it is the best sport ever! All the other riders are there to help one another and nobody ever has anything negative to say. You never have to sit on the sideline and watch. Girl BMX riders are the most aggressive and fearless riders. They're friends off the track, but when the gate drops everyone is an enemy.
“Hollywood” is truly becoming a force to be reckoned with having qualified to represent the USA at the Worlds! Best of luck Sierra!
