Four members of the St. Albert BMX Club are preparing to head to Nantes, France, to compete in the 2022 BMX World Championships this July.

Ariana van Leeuwen, 11, Aaliyah van Leeuwen, 12, Hailyn Walsh, 8, and Gretchen Hook, 9, were the four girls to qualify from the club. All four riders earned the honour after placing well in August’s Canadian nationals in Calgary.

The World Championships are set to feature more than 3,000 riders from 45 different countries.

Angela van Leeuwen, vice-president of the club, said everyone is excited about the representation at Worlds.

“We are really excited,” said van Leeuwen. “We haven’t really done anything more than provincials until last year so the girls competing at this level hasn’t really crossed our minds until now.”

The cold and snow have stopped the riders from getting out onto the track to practice right now. Instead, all four of them are partaking in some winter activities to keep fit and ready for when the time comes.

“We are doing basically any winter sport right now,” said Walsh. “Mostly at home, we will do sledding and we are also really big skiers.”
