About Adam Carey
While some riders who are in the Elite Men's class have a story that shows they were destined for great things from the age of 5, my story is a little different.
Truth be told, I started when I was 9 years old and wouldn't have won a race even if every other rider fell off. I loved the sport and I stuck at it. At age 6 I was diagnosed with diabetes, which has been a roller coaster ride to learn to compete with, even now I still have difficulties. I have not stopped riding and have put my head down and worked hard, ever since i decided BMX was for me. It has taken over 8 years in pro to get my first win.
My aim, to show people that coaching and working on the finer details brings about a better result. I want to show that if the dedication is there in any young athlete, you can make it.
