“I should never give up because I can always make it back up on the rest of the track,” said McLean, a member of the Penticton BMX Club.
McLean placed sixth among nine riders in the Cruiser 12 and under race, then surged from the back of the pack in the 9 male to earn a bronze medal. McLean wanted first, since he finished in top spot in his previous five races, until the final. McLean said he had a bad gate and then came out of the first corner last, before being able to climb his way a podium position. McLean believes he would have had a better result had he taken a different lane, but a rider next to him moved over, giving him nowhere to go.
