BMX Racing Podcast: Episode 13
I know I say this for most podcasts, but this is one of my favorite interviews I’ve ever done. Julian (Jools) Allen is not only an interesting dude, with tons of BMX experience, great tips, funny stories, but also a fantastic British accent. We chat about who has the best bacon – British, Canadians, or Americans? Also sending big jumps, crashes, and building better local BMX programs.
As you will hear in the podcast, I found out about Jools when he shared one of my articles. I started to look around his XLR8 BMX School Facebook page and loved what he was doing with the kids. He’s a coach that really gets teaching. Often I feel like many skills coaches/parents are trying to skip over the fundamentals to go right to the fancy stuff. Jools takes it all the way back to the start. Teaching kids the basics of jumping, manualing, etc.
