When he was younger, Larry Cambra dreamed of being the best dirt bike racer in the world. At just 11, he made that dream come true recently during an international racing victory in Brazil. Larry, who lives in Santa Ana, has been racing BMX bikes, which are specially designed for off-road racing, since he was 4. And although he's reluctant to brag about his successes, the more than 100 ribbons, plaques and trophies covering the walls and shelves in his bedroom attest to his ability.

I was thinking positive," he said Monday.

Bicycling in the dirt can be fun--a fact that kids knew long before adults discovered mountain biking a few years ago. It all started with the introduction of the low-slung Schwinn Sting-Ray in the '60s, which added curb-jumping and wheelies to a youngster's repertory of biking skills. Soon they were zooming along dirt trails and building jumps, and by the late '70s, the sport of BMX was born.
