Thanks Parents

Postby chuckw » Thu Dec 15, 2011 12:23 pm

Saw this today (not bike related), and it made me appreciate the parents we have involved in racing around here:

Don't think I've ever seen any super aggressive "racer Dad" type behavior at an OMRA event; good sportsmanship between the kids and the parents sure makes it fun.

Look forward to more good times next year -

I agree. The other parrents are one of the things I love so much about going to an OMRA event. Sadly, I have seen some littleleague attitudes at MX events.

Love the OMRA Youth Parents.


This is the main reason our family came back.

Everyone helps, no yelling, no side coaching ect.

We are not soccer dads. We all support the youth that are coming up.

Praise Oregon PRO Riders, the AA’s of Oregon. The also do not Yell, Shut off, Use for traction, ect. They all help and coach our younger riders.

Well said, I remember the obnoxious parents when umpiring baseball games...... none of that at any OMRA event I have attended.

Thanks Indeed..
