"We have seen Manipuri boys riding BMX well and they have all the potential to become perfect riders for which we have decided to train them next year at Imphal," said vice president of Asian Extreme Sports federation (AESF) Jojaya Charlie K .
He also confided that officials of AISF as well as Extreme Sports Association of Indian (ESAI) would be approached for providing training to the State riders specifically in BMX, skateboard and Aggressive in-line skate.
On the otherhand, ESAI secretary general Irom Umananda, himself a State native, informed that he would visit Thailand and Indonesia to formalise mode of holding such training in the country for the first time ever.
"Though this sports discipline is very new to our country we have around 15 registered BMX riders and many young riders have shown their enthusiasm in it after witnessing the first rate performance given by the Indonesia and Thailand riders on ramp in the tourism festival," Umananda said.
The BMX riding ramp provided by the government might be utilised for the training stints, he said adding that the association is also planning to buy standard BMX cycles for the trainees.
