Extreme sports: Dirt biking takes a turn

By Neha Potla ‘22



Though inherently dangerous, extreme sports are a favorite among this year’s students, especially senior Thomas J. Kelly who continues to push the boundaries of dirt biking.

Ever since his dad surprised him with a dirt bike as a kid, Kelly has loved to dirt bike. Flying through the trails and having complete control over the bike, Kelly always felt as though biking was more exciting than the generic sport programs offered by school.

Though dirt biking is not team sport and does not require scheduled meets and competitions, it is a sport that requires much practice to truly perfect the skill. His parents continuously encourage him to practice and pursue what he is interested in, and though dirt-biking is dangerous, they support him in this sport.

Kelly bikes because of the adrenaline rush, skill, and balance the sport provides.
