Did 2021 turn out the way you wanted? Cameron Wood:“Yes and no. 2021 was my first full race season as a pro, so I did a lot of growing. I met a lot of goals and also failed to reach others. Aside from results, I made sure I learned something and took something away from every race that helped me improve. I truly believe that a full year has helped me grow mentally and physically and I'll be a better racer for it moving forward.”
With the start of the new year, are you always looking to become a faster racer? Cameron Wood:“Yes. At the highest level of sport you can expect everybody to have the same answer.”
Have you picked your races for 2022 yet? Cameron Wood:“The USABMX circuit will be a priority again. As well as some UCI World Cups and the UCI World Championships. I would love to do some more international racing this year.”
Setting new goals for the new year is something most of us do. How can you better yourself? Is it possible to make that Elite main or podium? Is my training on point or is there someone out there who can teach me more? How's my diet? Should I switch to a carbon bike?
