Rider – Samantha Colling

My name is Samantha (Sami) the “Road Runner” Colling and I am a 10 year old Girl BMX racer.

I started racing Novice Class in late 2013 after watching my brother race BMX at KBMX.

This is my third year with McQuaig Racing and I am very proud to be a part of the team.

My favourite thing about BMX is the racing. However, the best part of BMX is making new friends and having fun with old friends.

My Home Tracks are Kingston BMX (KBMX) and Gananoque BMX, but I have raced all over Ontario, Michigan, New York and Virginia. One of my goals is to travel more and visit new tracks.

Britney Hovencamp is a rider I really admire because she never gives up.
