HOUSTON AWARDED 2020
UCI BMX WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Event to be hosted at brand-new North Houston Bike Park
DOHA, Qatar-Union Cyclist International / UCI announced today that Houston, Texas, has been selected as the site of the 2020 UCI BMX World Championships. The Harris County - Houston Sports Authority worked in conjunction with the United States Olympic Committee, USA Cycling, USA BMX and Greenspoint Redevelopment Authority to present the winning bid to the UCI.
The Championship event will take place May 26-May 31, 2020 at North Houston Bike Park. North Houston Bike Park, currently under construction, is part of a 30-acre extreme sports complex including a world-class BMX Race Track, concrete vert features, street course, pump tracks, tot track, bike trails and an outdoor events center that can seat approximately 3,500 guests. Janis Burke, Harris County - Houston Sports Authority, CEO said, "We are incredibly excited to be awarded the UCI BMX World Championships. Houston's brand-new North Houston Bike Park is truly impressive with great offerings and appealing fan fest areas than can be utilized in the green spaces surrounding the park. We are looking forward to building our cycling community with these facilities."
Adjacent to the Bike complex is North Houston Skate Park, the largest skate park in North America, featuring over 78,000 square feet of skateable surface, and Dylan Park, a park designed for children of varying abilities. The skate park had over 120,000 visitors this year, including skaters from 23 different countries. Sally Bradford, Executive Director of the Greenspoint Redevelopment Authority, said, "We are excited to host this incredible event and invite the world to enjoy this wonderful complex."
"I have no doubt that Houston will provide an exquisite route for riders to compete on, as well as provide outstanding hospitality to the athletes and guests," said Derek Bouchard-Hall, President / CEO of USA Cycling.
"USA BMX is absolutely thrilled that the UCI BMX World Championships will once again return to the US," stated USA BMX CEO, Bernard Anderson. "The North Houston Bike Park is going to be revolutionary in action sports and the participants of the World Championships will be treated to both an amazing venue and incredible Texas hospitality. We look forward to welcoming the world's best BMX riders to Houston."
BMX is cycling's newest Olympic discipline and is experiencing outstanding growth. Its popularity is widespread and UCI BMX World Championships have been organized in countries on five different continents. US Olympic Committee CEO, Scott Blackmun, said, "The USOC has worked diligently to be a meaningful partner in the worldwide Olympic Movement and the Harris County - Houston Sports Authority has been a great partner in this effort. I look forward to working with them in the run-up to 2020 UCI BMX World Championships."
The UCI BMX World Championships are held annually to crown a BMX World Cycling Champion and are expected to bring 3,000 amateur participants and 300 professional athletes from over 40 countries. Participants and their families are estimated to stay an average of 10 days in Houston. The UCI BMX World Championships will be the last stop before the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

|J&B Importers Acquire|
MIAMI, FLORIDA - August 15, 2016 - J&B
Importers has acquired Alienation, the Mill
Valley, CA based BMX aftermarket and OEM
component brand best known for penetrating
the BMX market with the first front specific
BMX rim, and for its wheel systems using TCS
(Tubeless Compatible System), licensed from
Alienation will continue to operate independently with its existing management team led by industry veteran, Zach Taylor. The transaction is effective immediately. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We see a tremendous opportunity in the Alienation brand and look forward to continuing the development of TCS compatible products. Moving the wheel building process in-house will allow us to quickly adapt spec, control quality, and provide healthy margins for the IBD." said Mitch Gurdjian, co-chief executive officer of J&B.
Taylor, Alienation's founder, will continue to lead operations in to the foreseeable future. Order processing for Alienation products will be intergrated within J&B's existing system. Alienation's supply chain will remain largely unchanged.
"We started Alienation ten years ago to offer inherently better products," Taylor said. "We have had amazing success to date and are excited about joining forces with J&B. J&B has a significant reach within the IBD, making them a natural fit. We look forward to further propelling forward with tubeless within BMX. We have some exciting new developments. We just signed an agreement to utilize Kappius' rear hub internals for BMX. I am really excited by these developments."
In the 2017 model year, brands including Haro/Premium, Kink and Redline will feature Alienation rims on upcoming models, according to Taylor. Alienation and Taylor will be attending Interbike in J&B booth #8195.
