Boy with local ties wins national title

Sunday, December 2, 2012

Max Robbins, 9, Indianapolis, recently won first place in the 9-Intermediate Class at the USA BMX Grand National Championship in Tulsa, Ok. Max is the son of Joe and Jayme Robbins, formerly of Brazil, and the grandson of Janice Dressler and Lynda Girton, both of Brazil.
Max Robbins, 9, son of Joe and Jayme Robbins, formerly of Brazil, and grandson to Janice Dressler and Lynda Girton, both of Brazil, has recently received a very large trophy -- a trophy taller than him in fact.

Max, Indianapolis, competed in the USA BMX Grand National Championship, a two-day event in Tulsa, Okla., where he won first-place.

According to Jayme, Max competed in five races within the two days. He placed first for the 9-Intermediate Class, out of 67 total riders.

Max began racing when he was 7-years-old when his dad thought it would be a fun sport for him to try. Max found he liked the competition and right now says he wants to continue participating in BMX when he is older.

Max is part of a race team out of Louisville, Ky. He travels around the country in order to compete in several competitions.

"He enjoys the friends he's made," Jayme said. "We've traveled a lot this year for the races, and we make friends with other families."

The Robbins have visited Tennessee, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Kentucky for races.

BMX is bicycle motocross, where people do stunt riding on rough ground or over an obstacle course on a bicycle.

I don't know Max, personally, but I know both grandmothers and I can tell you Grandma Dressler sure is proud of you! God bless you, young man!
