Johan & Gina
“Billy and I met when I was 6 and he was 8, 40 years ago, at a BMX track his parents ran. My dad also ran a track, so we saw each other often as kids. When I was 10, I had a huge crush on him and used to go around taking pictures of him. He couldn’t stand me! We raced together for years, but I stopped when I was 16 and really didn’t see him much. Many years went by (I was 24), and we ran into each other at a nightclub, where he asked me to go out the next night. I said yes, figuring it was just to hang out and catch up.
“We went to a movie and played pool after; it was nice. We went out a couple of times after that, and the one time he dropped me off, he kissed me. I was like, ‘Hmm, I guess this is more than I thought!’ From that moment, we started dating seriously, moved in together a couple of years later, got engaged, married in March of 1999, and have been together since. We now have two children and, once they were old enough to ride bikes, we took them to the BMX track to start racing like we did as kids. We couldn’t just watch anymore, so I decided first to start racing again, and my husband followed suit because he wanted to be able to ride with me too. Now we help run the local BMX track, and we look forward to riding together as a family in our spare time.
“We’ve had our ups and downs as all marriages do, but we love each other like crazy, and the sport of BMX has really brought us together—both in the past and in the present. The secret to our happiness is the fact that we have learned to really communicate so that we are both on the same page. There are many things we love about our relationship, but the one thing we love the most is just that we love being together and enjoying our lives.”
