Lane 8 BMX Podcast: Joey Leto, balancing school and racing

Joey Leto first showed up at a BMX track at the age of three. He was called the neighborhood legend. Joey says he wasn’t very good but he loved riding his bike. Sarasota BMX was and is his home track. He got serious with racing around the age of 11 when he started racing the Florida state series. During his amateur career he rod for All Tow Wrecking Crew/Yess to Full Tilt. Joey’s amateur career was capped off with NAG #1 plate in the 17-20 expert class. He turned pro and started racing for Corsa Wear and eventually switched over to Staystrong. He says the biggest adjustment to racing pro is not racing as often as he did as an amateur. Currently he’s mixing racing and going to school at Lindenwood University in St. Louis, Missouri. Joey is studying para-medicine. His next race is Louisville.
