Cameron Bramer, an U23 BMX Pro for Team USA BMX Pro and the Supercross Factory team, started racing BMX at the age of 9 after discovering his dad’s old racing trophies in the basement. His father, Jim Bramer, asked Cam if he wanted to check out the track, he immediately fell in love with the sport and the rest is history!
From Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Cam took to racing like a natural and has since progressed rapidly through the sport, most recently taking 3rd place in the 2019 USA Cycling Elite BMX National Championships (17-20 expert).
“Training on the Wattbike has helped me work on short, sharp sprints whilst boosting my endurance for longer rides.”
“At the beginning of every year, I would struggle with both endurance and track speed.” Cam explains. “Having an indoor bike on rollers helped me get by for a little while, but it just wasn’t enough. Introducing a Wattbike into my training made all the difference, I could work on short, sharp sprints building up my power and speed whilst also boosting my endurance on longer rides.”
On the Wattbike, Cam likes to focus on pushing his sprinting power through the in-built 6-second test. This compliments his training on the BMX bike, where he’ll tend to focus on quick technique coming out of the gates, or tactical moves in order to manoeuvre the best racing lines.
“I love the feeling you get after you’ve done a killer session!”
“I really like the Wattbike because it makes it easy for me to set goals, and then to crush them!”
