FROM the age of two, children learn a lot of things from the environment around them and imitate whatever their parents say and do.

This is what has happened to three-year-old Alestair Blick. Already, he can ride a motorcycle just like his father Arthur Blick. Alestair’s father has been the Ugandan champion for so many years and he is the captain of the national team.

Alestair shocked people in February at the Uganda Motocross Club track in Entebbe when he rode three laps (2km), going over big huddles like an expert rider.

“He is amazing. The earliest a normal child starts riding is five years. He will be a champion one day,” Alestair’s father says.

His father says riding is Alestair’s favourite sport at the moment. “Whenever I go with him to Garuga for training, he gets faster and braver,’’ his father says.

Alestair goes to Aunt Clare Kindergaten in Mengo and loves watching Telly Tubbies cartoons and Spiderman videos. He says he loves school and likes playing with other children.

Alestair is not allowed to ride on the streets because he is below 18 years. He only rides in enclosed areas during competition. It is good for children to participate in sports but there must be an adult to watch over them.
