BMX Flatland Rider Inspires Students

Elementary North’s third, fourth and fifth graders received quite a treat today. Matt Wilhelm, a BMX Flatland rider and motivational speaker, performed at the school. He is known for his fast spinning and aggressive riding style. He is a three-time X Games Medalist, World Championship Silver Medalist, two-time United States National Champion, and Guinness World Record holder. He also spoke to the students about the challenges he faced in getting to where he is now, and emphasized the importance of not giving up even when you initially fail at something.
