James Palmer

A young BMX racer with a need for speed on the dirt tracks, James Palmer (or Poncho as he’s known to some) is already a national champion and looking to go further.

 

Despite being one of the young members of the elite National Race Team, Palmer still makes time for the young up-and-comers in his community through his club coaching and clinics. Living for the action-packed 35 seconds of a dirt track race, Palmer is sure to get only better as his racing progresses and his strength increases. If you are one of the other 7 guys in a race against him, watch out.
