How Long Have You Been Racing? Since 2020
How Did You Get Involved in BMX Racing?
When I was 7 or 8 my family went to the 4th of July parade in South Elgin and The Hill had people riding in the parade. One of the riders handed us a flyer with racing information. Eventually, me and my brothers rode our bikes to the track. We loved it. We all bought race bikes in 2019 and started practicing and going to watch the races.
Was Winning the “Track Points Champion Title” a Goal You Set Early in the Season, or Did it Just Work Out That Way?
I was going for the title in 2021 until I got injured. It took me out for six weeks, and ruined my chance to win. My brother finished second for track champion in 2021, so all four of us brothers were fighting for the title all year.

We asked Kavi’s dad, Jason to tell use a little about the “1 Way” Team, and its origins
One Way BMX was established to inform others that Jesus is the only way to eternal salvation.
“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Keep an eye on Kavi, and the 1 Way Team throughout the 2023 season…and take this opportunity to opt-in for track points, so you can have a shot at the title, this season.
