The LONDON BMX Series wouldn't be the same without the novelty of seeing the Mums + Dads thrash it out for the accolades of No. 1 Mum and No. 1 Dad! Usually it happens mid-season but as Hayes Hawks BMX Club were the hosts for Rnd 1 this year, it helped kick off the series in style. Ok, maybe we should say in "comedic fashion"! But still, 4 Mums and 16 Dads were up for the challenge, and the laugh, and gave it their all! And the best bit is, the Paramedic wasn't required once, PHEW!! Here's the all important photographic evidence of the fun they all had...
