When I first bought my BMX bike in 2005, I searched long and far (Google) for other female riders such as myself, it wasn’t long until I found duo Nina Buitrago and Stacey Mulligan. Today there’s definitely a lot more female riders across the continent, meet one of them – Karla Wright from Cambridge, United Kingdom
How has riding changed your life?
A lot! It’s given me something exciting to focus on in life. I’m constantly meeting new people, going new places and making new friends. It’s great. If I didn’t love bmx so much I’d probably still be skateboarding or a musician… but yeah i’m a BMX head through and through!
Who are your role models?
Ahh… is the bit where I’m supposed to mention someone famous or something? Well to be honest I really don’t know… thinking about it though it’s got to be friends and people i see loving the sport for what it is and riding with a passion and for the thrill not just trying to gain attention, to be the best or trying to get hooked up – I hate that in people. So just have fun and chill…
Do you have any goals that you are trying to work towards?
At this moment in time I’d just love to get about more, ride some new and exciting parks, and no hander airs… I’d love to dare take my hands off on the local ramp 🙂
Do you go to school? what outside stuff do you do?
No I don’t go to school… I think 20 is a little bit old for all that 😉
