DAREDEVIL ON PEDALS
And after his first crack at the fast-growing kids' sport, daredevil Eddie said: "It's a whole lot of fun."
He was put through his paces by five-year-old [is this a printing error?] David Maw, one of the country's most promising BMX starlets.
BMX stands for Bicycle Moto-cross, and youngsters race round obstacle courses on special rough-rider bikes.
Crash helmets are a must and so is a good sense of balance.
The craze has already swept the United States and is now taking off in a big way here too.
David, of Barnetby le Wold, South Humberside, has competed in five national events so far this season - and won them all.
But he found that Eddie could teach him a few tricks when it comes to leaping off ramps.
Said David: "Motorbikes or BMX, I think Eddie is the greatest in the world."
