WAREHAM, Mass. (WPRI) — This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is Aidan Bailey.
The 9-year-old from Jamestown sits atop the New England Motorcross rankings in his age group, and his success has earned him the opportunity of a lifetime.
Aidan and Team Bailey headed to Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta to race in the KTM Junior Supercross Challenge.
In front of a crowd of more than 20,000 people, Aidan finished second in the 14-rider field. The race was also broadcast nationally on Fox Sports 1.
The sport has become a family affair. Aidan’s older brother John was his inspiration to ride and the Bailey family travels up and down the East Coast to compete in different events.
