Pupils and staff at The Lea Primary School in Harpenden were paid a visit by BMX Halfpipe Champion and Former World Master Champion Mike Mullen.
Mike runs BMX Academy, where he shares his personal experience of being a young, not particularly sporty boy who lacked confidence, and how learning to do BMX stunts and enter competitions enabled him to build resilience.
