TRAINING TO WIN

the bmx proyect

The main aim of Training to win – BMX project is to promote the physical, psychical and socio-relational benefits of BMX for children and teenagers

In previous posts we talked about the needs of BMX and we also mentioned the need for an initial study to understand the situation of BMX athletes and coaches in Europe. To do this we created a survey for riders, coaches, club directors, federations, associations and people involved in our BMX community.

The collection and analysis of the data obtained allowed us to carry out a REPORT OF NEEDS IN BMX.
