Over the past year I have had the opportunity to meet many BMX riders but one young lady stands out amongst the rest because of her drive and determination to have fun on 2 wheels no matter what the discipline. Her name is Breanna “ Monster B” Winter and let’s just say she is a lil monster on 2 wheels, and at 9 years old she competes at a nation level on the BMX racing circuit.
Recently she was picked up by Tangent Products to ride for their team and if you know about the BMX racing world, Tangent is a big deal (Tangent Cartel). She is supported by her Mom/Coach (Beth) and Dad (Brad) both are avid riders and Dad runs a bicycle shop. Monster B as she well know is such an inspiration for the young ladies out there wanting to get out and ride, she does it because she loves it as you can see it in her eyes as she pedals feverishly down the track. In addition to her on track accomplishments she even competes in triathlons for her age group and has placed 1st!
I believe she has a very big future ahead of her and I have been honored to have captured many of her BMX adventures on the track. Monster B you rock!! Sincerely your photographer buddy.
