Danica Kent is one of the best BMX riders in the state of her age, and lives right here in St James, Minnesota.

Kent turned 10 this month, and isn’t planning on slowing down her BMX career now that she’s aged in the double digits. While celebrating her birthday, she also cel- ebrates some major accomplishments in her sport.

Last year, Kent was 1st in state for points for 24” class bikes, and 2nd in

20” class bikes. She was 5th in the state championship, and she made it to Nationals this year and raced against the World 1st and 2nd champions in Tulsa during the Grand Nationals.
