BMX racer, 4, on a quest to beat older brothers

GUY Hocking's bike is not one he went out and hand-picked - he inherited it from his older brothers.

But that does not stop the four-year-old loving his ride.

Zooming around the Harbour City BMX track, Guy loves the feel of his Redline beneath his feet.

And he loves to show off the way it looks.

"I like the colour of it," he said.

The Redline's appearance isn't perfect, with a few battle scars from multiple crashes since Guy began racing back when he was three.

Luckily, Guy doesn't have any damage himself, but describes the worst tumble he has had since getting the bike from his older brothers Ali, 8, and Aim, 6.

"Once I had a crash on my head and went flipping over," he said. "I have hurt my elbow too."

It is all in the quest to become the best in his family, chasing down his dad Gavin and brothers.

"I think my oldest brother Ali is the best," Guy said. "I will beat them when I get older."
