Another round of congratulations for West Seattle 7-year-old Colton Fukano, after the Washington State BMX Championships earlier this month. The photo and report are from Colton’s proud mom Shawnda Fukano:
Colton Fukano earned 1st place in the state for the 7-year-old expert division. In August, Colton won his 30th race, which moved him up from “intermediate” to the “expert” class. Colton rides for Sonic BMX, which practices at the North Seatac BMX track, and is sponsored by Sprocketts Recycled Bicycles in Magnolia. Colton is in second grade at Genesee Hill Elementary.
If anyone is interested in trying out BMX, check out Peninsula Indoor BMX in Port Orchard. They have new rider clinics and free loaner bikes and helmets. Colton and his dad take the ferry there to practice in the winter when the outdoor tracks are too muddy.
Shawnda first told us about Colton’s achievements two years ago, when his first trip to the state championships
