Olympic BMX Predictions!

Yep, you heard us right.....Olympic BMX Predictions! Everyone's talking about it, but one guy has the guts to do some research and come up with an educated guess!

Carl Lein, long time BMX Addict, Team Starter and EVEN, Magazine Editor of his own BMX Magazine, has launched a feature to his web site, called Global BMX, with a bit of BMX Olympic Conjecture.

According to Carl, "these predictions are based on current nation's rankings, not what I predict will be the final standings.....see notes about final predictions. I've received several emails about rider's positions or omission from my list. These are not the official lists and they will change over time. The individual governing bodies from each country will decide who goes"....obviously, not Carl, will make the decisions, but he's got some pretty good predictions for you to check out.

Intense/Phantom/On-Trac Dominates Freedom National 

Intense/Phantom/On-Trac’s NBL warriors made their way to Northern Virginia last weekend with the goal of extending their lead in their NBL Title Hunt.  The Woodbridge track is well known to be one of the finest BMX facilities on the East Coast including a well maintained and manicured track, incredibly reasonable prices for food and parking and even indoor plumbing.   Hey – the finer things in life matter!   To ensure the team’s comfort, our Charlotte-based Tesar family came in and set up camp and what a camp they put together – full on wrench facilities and a mobile kitchen with all our daily supply of vitamins, fruits and veggies! 

“Fly’n” Felicia Stancil and her road-warrior Dad drove in from Illinois to keep up her string of victories.  Felicia is soooooooooo strong.  She easily wins 12 Girls both days.  In Cruiser she owns 12 and Under on Saturday and on Sunday we thought it would be interesting when combined with 15-16 and 17-24 Girls Cruiser.  Not really.  Felicia just powers away from the pack and wins that combined class, too.  A monster on the track and off the track, a sweeter girl you’ll never meet.   

Texas-based grommet 8X “Vicious” Vaughn Herrick made the trip East as much to race as to see the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument and the White House all lit up at night.  Vaughn not only won a trophy as a world-class tourist, he took two 2nds in a combined 8 and 9 year old expert class.   

Cole Tesar had a great weekend, killing it in 11X and a combined 11/12 Cruiser.  Cole managed to find pedals where his comp couldn’t and he just rode away every lap, winning convincingly finishing the weekend with a fine double-double. 

In 14X, the rivalry between Rusty Nesvig and OFR’s Jordan Ryan is one that gets better and better with every meeting.  Sunday’s main was a prime example with Jordan winning the hole-shot, Rusty passing Jordan inside down the 2nd straight, then Jordan finishes the job when Rusty goes wide in the last turn with a tremendous swoop to take the lead.  Rusty takes two 2nds to Jordan for the weekend.   

15X Connor Fields, fresh off a few days training on the Chula Vista Olympic track, flew coast-to-coast returning to Woodbridge for the first time in 6 years.  “The track seemed a lot bigger then”, he said with a big smile.  With Grandma and Grandpa on-hand to watch, the “Conman” has little trouble for the weekend, compiling another weekend of perfect racing taking 15X both days.   

Finally, “Quick” Nic Long does what he does.  He blasts out of the gate, pedals everywhere, uses every backside to the fullest and kills the comp.  Nic takes 17-18X easily both days and also wins the Sunday-only 17 and over Open for a little pocket money for use in New York where he joins teammates Connor, sister Kristen, Chris Blevins as well as Redline’s Anthony DeRosa and Brock Heffron in New York City at Rockefeller Center for NBC’s Today Show.   Look for the spot @

Intense/Phantom/On-Trac wins both days with scores of 92 and 90, adding a few more points to the year’s total.  The team remains in first place as we enter the Summer.  Chasing title in two sanctions is never easy, but it is made easier with great kids, great parents and great sponsors.  To watch your favorite Intense/Phantom/On-Trac rider, check out .

Supercross BMx Picks Up Mike Moeller

For Immediate Release ­ Apple Valley, CA

In what is probably one of the weirdest and quickest Double A Pro switches since the Redline/Haro Griggs/King team switch of the early 90's it seems that Supercross and Crupi are doing a little pro swapping.

After just over 1 month on the Supercross Factory team Tyler Brown left for the Green of Team Crupi leaving an opening on the Supercross Factory Roster.

Not wanting to fill the vacancy with just any AA Pro as we want a rider that has loyalty to the program and is as nice to the kids and fans as the rest of the Supercross Pro's are we decided to leave the spot open for a bit.
That was until we received a call from one of the nicest and most loyal AA Pro's on the circuit. Mikey Moeller. Seems that he had decided to leave Crupi after being with them for 9 of his last 11 years and was looking for a new home.

Guess it is true when you're not looking for things, that is when you get exactly what you need.

After consulting with our team and Pro's , we knew our first thoughts were correct when Samantha said "Tell Mikey Welcome to the Family" .

We are looking forward to a long career with Mikey as he is in his pursuit of his ABA Pro Plates and the dreams of the 2012 Olympics.

Look for Mikey to make his Supercross Team debut at the ABA Spartanburg Pro National this weekend in South Carolina where Mikey will racing his Supercross EVO iS towards the podium along with the rest of the Supercross Factory Team.

For more information on Sammy, Kenth, Mikey and the entire Supercross team is up to check out for news and product updates and more.

The abbreviated track will feature a starting hill with electronic gate, a 120' straight, a roller section and a 16" double jump for Kyle, Donny and Arielle to showcase their skills.  It's even rumored that some of the hosts of the show may even give it a try.


“BMX racers are the most skilled cyclists in the world, from sprinting to negotiating jumps, BMX racers develop these skills at a very young age. It’s great that the media will finally witness these skills, The Today Show is just the start of the media coverage our sport is about to receive.”  Said Clayton John, ABA President

The entire project with the Today Show was made possible by a collaborative effort from the American Bicycle Association and ABA national sponsors Fly Racing, FireMagic Premium Grills, Jigaloo lubricant, and GT Bicycles with help from Free Agent,  NBL and USA Cycling.  To add even more Olympic flare to the show Pierce Barker of Pro Gate is providing a scaled down version of the actual Olympic Starting gate.

BMX Mania Photo by Jerry LandrumSifiso Nhlapo kept his Olympic hopes alive when he beat many of the world’s best riders to grab a second victory in the 2008 European BMX Championship Series in Switzerland at the weekend.

The 20-year-old South African placed third in Round 9 and then won Round 10 of the 12-leg European Championship Series, the most competitive international BMX racing series in the world. The win came at a good time for Nhlapo, whose last triumph in the Series was back in Round 1 last December.

“It’s a good time to be winning because it’s getting close to the world champs at the end of May and that’s really where the form will count, especially with Olympic Games places up for grabs,” said Nhlapo from his European base in Aigle, Switzerland on Monday.

“I’ve been putting in some really hard work in training and have been so completely focused so the win was a great reward,” explained Nhlapo, adding that he tries not think about Olympic selection when racing.

“When I have fun, I produce better results. But this whole Olympic qualification thing just puts me under pressure if I think about it too much. So I try and just race for the original reason I started racing. To enjoy it!”

In Round 10 on Sunday, Nhlapo started in Lane 2 in and produced one of his customary powerful starts to head into the first corner with a half a bike length lead over Latvian star, Maris Strombergs. The bright yellow-clad MTN-sponsored rider then had a smooth run to the finish, in the process ensuring no other rider was able to challenge him for the win.

“I got a perfect start and leading into the first corner is key. I had a really solid race which was great after my disappointment at the Supercross World Cup in Australia.”

At last weekend’s Supercross World Cup event in Adelaide, Nhlapo pulled his foot out his pedal while comfortably leading the quarterfinal. But the foot and pedal divorce had dire consequences in that Nhlapo lost too much speed and was unable to proceed to the semi-finals.

But this weekend, on his familiar racing turf in Europe, Nhlapo earned 20 UCI rankings points, a handy haul in his pursuit of a place in the 32-man field in Beijing where BMX racing makes its Olympic debut. As at 16 April, when the current UCI BMX rankings were released, Nhlapo was tie 23rd with 53 points. His weekend haul takes him to 73 points and pushes him into briefly into the world’s top 10. A timely confidence boost if ever there was one!

Nhlapo’s next event is in Germany where he’ll contest the final two rounds of the 2008 European Championship Series on 3 and 4 May. He’s currently lying second in the Series and occupies third on the UCI European rankings. He’ll then head to Denmark for Round 3 of the Supercross World Cup on 9 and 10 May before heading to China for the world championships.

BMX To Get Nationwide exposure on NBC TV's Today Show!


BMX is going to be getting some major U.S. TV time next week, when Kenan Harkin breaks out a little BMXin' on NBC TV's, Today Show which is seen in tens of millions of homes across America every morning.


Kenan will be the BMX Racing commentator during NBC's coverage of the first ever BMX Racing event at the Beijing Olympics this August and has been the racing voice of the UCI's international TV broadcasting of the UCI Supercross and UCI World's events for the past year.


According to Kenan, the show airs on April 30th.


The BMX portion will air during the 8:00 A.M. hour and again during the 10:00 A.M. time frame.


Being seen in the TV feature will be Team USA's, Donny Robinson, Kyle Bennett, Arielle Martin, and Kenan.


Evidently, a small BMX track will be built by UCI Track Builder, Tom Ritz and will feature a Pro-Gate starting system.


Both of the U.S. sanctioning organizations, the ABA and the NBL are helping this get off the ground, as well as GT and Free Agent Bikes.


The Today Show has been on NBC for 56 years and is the top rated morning television show in the U.S. market.


It's quite an opportunity for BMX to get some great exposure....Hats off to Kenan and all who have helped get the whole thing goin' on, it's bound to be a hit!


Now, if they can just get Matt Lauer (Today Show host) on a bike and clearin' some doubles, it'd REALLY be news!

FORMCO 3/32” x ½” SOLID Pin chain to its inventory, to compliment the FORMCO 3/32” x ½”  HOLLOW Pin chain.

NIKE Announces Olympic Shoes/Uniforms

At the upcoming Olympics in Beijing Nike will be involved with design product for all 28 sports, which is contrast from 11 sports four years ago in Athens. An interesting addition not only to the Olympics games but also Nike is the sport of BMX which has been growing since its induction during the 1970's, as both a competitive sport and and one on the streets. Always thinking outside the circle Nike have come up with this Nike Dunk Gyrizo, which is Greek for wheel along with innovative apparel that will be adorned by Nike athletes this summer.

“Looks like a dunk, but acts like Lance’s cleat.” That statement sums up the power and impact of the Nike Dunk Gyrizo, a shoe specifically designed for BMX
racing. The Gyrizo, which is Greek for wheel, is actually built on the same cycling last as Lance Armstrong’s cleat. The external portion of the shoe looks like Nike’s wildly popular Dunk model, but the design of the internal plate transfers power in the up and down strokes of the rider. A strap on the upper and a lace pocket keep laces out of the rider’s spokes while a durable outsole compound was integrated to accommodate a wider bike pedal. Kevlar lace and metal grommets are also used to maximize durability. Rubber and thinner midsole on the shoe allow a rider to walk easily before and after races.

Nike’s goal is always to try to stay 100% authentic to the sport. The first uniform design created was ultra-lightweight, but riders wanted heavier versions, so Nike designers added more lining. The final version of the uniform actually ended up being 35% lighter than previous ones, but was still praised by the BMX athletes. A simple, Dri-FIT ringer tee is part of the uniform set and employs No-Sew technology and mesh on the back panel.

For Beijing, Nike is outfitting the US, China and Japanese BMX teams whose uniform graphics are inspired by checkerboards and the classic Comp 3 tire tread. The graphics also take cues from 1980s style, including a Bob Haro-designed star logo on pants and phrases written on the seat of pants like “C-Ya.” The uniforms don’t have the same graphic system as the rest of the Beijing uniform family, an intentional move by Nike designers because the sport is so unique. 

Look out for much more from this fascinating technology from Nike in the future with BMX continuing to grow as a competitive sport as well as a leisure sport.

New Zealand Picks Up Ken Cools As national Coach

There's been a new addition to the New Zealand National BMX Team, and it isn't a rider......Well, it kind of is, but......Not really. Wait, is he a rider or is he a team coach? Or is he a master clinician who has taught thousands of BMXers for years all over two separate countries?

He's actually all of those things, and his name is Ken Cools, International Coach Of Destiny! That actually might be a bit over the top, but he's 'been there done that' when it comes to coaching BMX, and now he has a chance to coach a two person team that could land both riders on the Olympic BMX Podium in August.

Ken is also the brother of another fast young and upcoming international Olympic star, Samantha Cools, Canadian BMX Superstar who now calls Switzerland home......Whew, this is getting complicated.

"Big Rig" as he's been known to be called is a former Head Instructor with Burlin and Bubba Harris' Supercamp clinics that travels around America teaching BMX to thousands of riders every year, and knows how to teach BMX, and he is also a certified trainer who has personally coached some of the fastest of the fast, including, Sammy Cools, Bubba Harris, Joey Bradford, Alise Post and many many others.

Cools has signed an agreement thru the end of September, when Ken and New Zealand will be looking at possibilities for the future. Immediate plans for the team include a stint in Arizona, training with Bubba and a week at the UCI World Cycling Center working out at the BMX Olympic Training Track.......Nice!

Congrats to Ken and New Zealand Cycling for a great match up, and if we know Ken, NZ BMX will be in the process of becoming a World Wide Force for BMX soon!

BMX track at UCI World Cycling Centre highly sought after


Official UCI Press Release - April 18, 2008


British Cycling returned to Aigle, Swizerland, this week to train on the BMX track at the World Cycling Centre (WCC) in preparation for the European BMX Championships.


British Cycling was the first National Federation to send its athletes to train on the track after its reconstruction a year ago. The track was completely modified to resemble the track that riders will encounter at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.


Since the British team’s 4-day training camp in May 2007, 12 National Federations have trained on the WCC track, most of them on more than one occasion.


Three British BMX athletes, Shanaze Reade, Joey Gough and Liam Phillips, were back in Aigle from April 12th – 17th to train under the guidance of new coach Grant White, formerly of Bike New Zealand. They then traveled to Echichens, Switzerland, for rounds 9 and 10 of the European BMX Championships which take place this weekend.


New Zealand’s top two BMX athletes will train at the WCC from April 27th – May 7th. Marc Willers and Sarah Walker currently lead the UCI BMX rankings, and will use their stay in Switzerland to prepare the third leg of the UCI BMX Supercross in Copenhagen, Denmark, on May 9th and 10th.


Five Australian BMX athletes will also train on the WCC track in preparation for the Copenhagen Supercross leg. Nicole Callisto, Tanya Bailey, Kama Kazi, Luke Madill and Jared Graves will be in Aigle from May 4th -7th before traveling to Denmark.


Meanwhile the French training structure Optimal Training will also return to the WCC from May 14th -15th with BMX athletes Anne-Caroline Chausson, leader of the UCI European BMX rankings, and Romain Saladini.

We have a CORRECTION to make and we'd like to apologize to Melissa Mankowski because we inadvertently in a Jet Lagged fit of ineptitude, TOTALLY MESSED UP the spelling of her name in a photo caption last weekend when she won the Elite Women's race at the Australian National Championships, Sunday in Adelaide. Sorry, Mel, we won't do it again, that is, unless we're totally jet lagged and mumbling incoherently in some airport somewhere between here and there!

King of BMX 3 Program Guide

The King of BMX is an awesome, unique contest to see who is the best over all BMXer (park, dirt jumps and racing). Each contestant that runs all three venues has the chance at being crowned ‘King’ as we add up all the scores  for the overall winners. Points are simple- 1st place= 1 point, 2nd 2 points and so on til 8th place. Every placing after8th (9th and above) will only receive 8 points due to each contest may or may not have the same number of riders in it as some just do the park or the time trials etc. Racers, Park riders and Dirt jumpers- all competing for the title…..’King of BMX’.

Below are some short bios of riders that have a shot at the title, or stand out in one venue and will try to stay close enough to put them on the podium.

 Spectating is free and the action is unparalleled, so don’t miss this one of a kind night of BMX madness!

Tyler Sparr- The panhandle’s best offer to the extreme of dirt jumping and park riding. He has represented our area in X Games qualifiers and the Dew Tour events like no one else. Double tail whips, huge air on the dirt and a sick smooth style are some of the things you can expect to see out of the reigning ‘King of BMX’ here for the last two years running.

Barry Nobles- Brought it down to the wire last year by staying near the top on the park and dirt and then setting a blistering time of 29 seconds flat on the track. I’m sure Barry wants the crown as bad as ever this year and could be the one.

 Ryan ‘Z-Man’ Zelinski- So much talent in all three venues and still does it on flat pedals on the BMX track! If Z-Man stays consistent, this could be the year of the new king!

Bill Madden- Still jamming in the Elite Masters division with the legends of BMX racing. There is no one his age who can keep pace with him on the dirt jumps, and can post a sub 30 second lap on the track! None of these guys wants to be outdone by someone their fathers age!

Fort Walton Beach - Emerald Coast BMX
Bill Madden - Track Phone: (850) 796-2326

Directions: From Hwy 98 in Ft Walton Beach, go north on Beal Pkwy, then left on Hollywood Blvd. Take first right onto Jet Dr., go straight at the stop sign, go approx 1/2 mile to the Fred Hedricks Rec Center on the left. Turn into the parking lot. Track is down by the soccer fields. - Track Address: 126 Jet Dr., Ft Walton Beach, FL 32548

Round 9 and 10 of the European Championship for Junior/Elite Men and Women were held in Echichens, Switzerland.


With snow on the mountain tops and sunshine covering the track it appeared to be a promising weekend.

On sunday Joyce was in first but took the outside lane leaving the gap open for the competition. Joyce took 1 3rd again.

On sunday Toms took a 3rd and increased his lead in the Championship.

In Elite Women we missed Aneta Hladikova from Czech Republic. Aneta is suffering from an ankle injury, caused in Australia last week and might be out for months.

Blandine Cotterau and Magalie Pottier from France flew the ONE/Kenda colors and  made the main both days.

Blandine took 4th both days while magalie took a 5th on saturday and 8th on sunday.

Round 9 and 10 were not the rounds Latvian Arturs Matisons hoped for.

BMXer Lanell Rockmore Tears It Up on the Cycling Circuit

Lehigh Valley 2 times Junior Cyclist National Champion and BMX Star, Lanell Rockmore from Gotham Cycling Club will be arriving this evening at Philly airport from his trip to  the  2008 Matrix Cup in Frisco, Texas this past weekend. Lanell is very talented in cycling.

Lanell has been training very hard this winter and it really paid off for him. Lanell was on fire this whole weekend as he dominated this weekend. He even laps the field twice in two different events. Lanell said he is very happy to be Coached by Marty Nothstein, Olympic Champion and Gil Hatton.

This coming May 21, 2008 Lanell will be leaving for Carson, LA for the Junior Worlds trials, with hopes that he can for the second time represent USA Junior World Team this coming July held at Cape Town, South Africa. Lanell has lots of racing this coming season.

This past March Lanell traveled with his Coach Gil Hatton to the 2008 Southern Games in Trinidad.



Every year, Trinidad and Tobago hosts the Southern Games at the historic Guaracara Park in Pointe-a-Pierre, Trinidad, where the top cyclists from across the world come to compete. Gotham Cyclist Lanell Rockmore and T-Town Express rider Ryan Nelman were fortunate enough to compete in this prestigious two-day race event.

After a grueling weekend in Trinidad and Tobago, Rockmore displayed his talents by dominating the competition in the 1000 and 1500 meter sprint events. Rockmore, 17, was new to the Southern Games, but proved that he is a force to be reckoned with on an international level of junior racing and elite riders.

Graves, Mankowski, Willoughby & Reynolds Take Elite/Junior Titles

At Australian National Finals in Adelaide!






Mankowski not beaten for Beijing BMX

BMX Australia News Release/Sharon Payne-BMXA


NEWLY CROWNED National BMX Champion, Melissa Mankowski, has given selectors a reason to keep her in mind when nominations are made for the Australian Olympic Team in June. Mankowski today proved she should not be written off as a chance of making the Beijing Olympics when the sport debuts in August. The 20 year old was desperate for the win on the final day of racing at the Adelaide Showgrounds after apprehension about riding the Supercross course last weekend saw her withdraw.


 “It was a more personal thing this weekend,” said Mankowski. “By not racing last weekend and getting fourth in Probikx on Friday I just wanted to do it for me.”


Mankowki injured her hip following the Olympic test event in Beijing on a similar course and maintains she was wary about what could go wrong. However, after winning on the national course today with only slight variations made to the Supercross course, Mankowski could be overcoming her fear.


“It is a good confidence thing to roll down that hill and come away with a win,” said Mankowski.


The win is Mankowski’s twelfth national title but only her first in the elite class.


Defending BMX National Champion, Tanya Bailey from Perth, finished in second place with fellow Western Australians, Catherine Hopkins in third while Nicole Callisto crashed in the first turn.


In the elite men’s final early leader, Kamakazi, was relegated into third by Jared Graves and Luke Madill down the third strait. Graves and Madill fought throughout the final strait with Graves winning the national title by only a half a wheel. Madill claimed second while Billy Jolliffe claimed third


Graves' win also gives him the overall Oceania Ranking series win over world number one, Marc Willers from New Zealand, after a count back.


Local rider, Sam Willoughby won the junior men's national title ahead of Gold Coast's Steven Janssen. Third was Vicotoria's Michael Chasteauneuf.


The junior women's race saw Bunbury's Lauren Reynolds take the win from Townsville's Rachel Bracken. Last year's defending champion, Caroline Buchanan, claimed third.



Mankowski is not intending on racing the last Supercross race in Copenhagen next month. This leaves Mankowski with one last chance of a result at the World Championships in Taiyuan in China in June. Following that event nomination for the Australian team will be made. Currently the nation ranking looks hopeful for Australia taking a maximum number of three men and two women.

BMX Mania is Diggin' the Australian National Championships!

Since we were already in the area due to attending the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Adelaide, Australia we figured that since the Australian National Championships are just the next weekend, that we'd stick around. Not a bad idea as BMX Australia decided to make a little BMX History in the process.

BMXA took the UCI Supercross track and did a few little adjustments to it for a racing surface for the Aussie Finals which includes little 'Sprockets' to 50+ Cruiser riders. OH! Did we mention that they kept the START HILL as well?

Uh.....History Making decision there, whoever made that one! Never before in the history of BMX have NON-Elite riders ridden on the UCI SX Start Hill.

Elite Women Get After It In RADelaide, Australia



BMX Mania Photo Of The Day

Some photos BEG to be published.....This is one of them. Maybe it's a "different kind of podium". At the UCI Adelaide Supercross race, instead of David Herman (Left) being FIRST on the podium, he's got Second nailed down and isn't quite sure why, or what exactly is going on. At right, UCI Supercross Head Honcho, Johan Lindstrom seems to think that David, in fact, IS the man. But the guy who takes it all out in First Place is Kamakazi who is going crazy in the background in "First Place". Pretty funny stuff.

Friday.....Adelaide Showgrounds Spectacular Race Coverage From BMX Mania!


Big Men's Photo Gallery/Mini Race review Posted to

UCI Supercross Adelaide Report Page on BMX Mania!


Martin Finishes Second in Women's Event

Adelaide, Australia (April 13, 2008)-The United States continued to illustrate its depth in BMX racing on Sunday when David Herman (Wheat Ridge, Colo.) won the men's race at the second round of the 2008 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup and Arielle Martin (Pleasant Grove, Utah) finished second in the women's event.

As the only American to qualify for the final eight-man main, Herman outkicked several of the world's top riders to capture the biggest win of his career. After qualifying 23rd in Saturday's time trial session, Herman managed to advance all the way to the finals where he faced Maris Strombergs (NED), Kamakazi (AUS), Michal Prokop (CZE), Raymon van der Biezen (NED), Luke Madill (AUS), Emillo Falla (ECU), and Jared Graves (AUS). In the winner-take-all format, Herman crossed the line in 30.446 seconds to finish just 0.283 of a second ahead of Strombergs for the victory.

Despite earning the number one seed, Donny Robinson (Napa, Calif.), as well as compatriots Mike Day (Santa Clarita, Calif.) and Bubba Harris (Goodyear, Ariz.), were all eliminated from contention in the semifinals.

In the women's race, Martin finished second to Sarah Walker (NZL) by just 0.267 of a second in an eight-woman final that featured three Americans. Jill Kintner (Seattle, Wash.) finished fifth overall while Amanda Geving (Largo, Fla.) placed sixth.

Martin earned the second seed behind Jana Horakova (CZE) before finishing behind Walker in a final that also included her two countrywomen, as well as Samantha Cools (CAN), Tanya Bailey (AUS), Nicole Callisto (AUS) and Maria Gabriella Diaz (ARG).

The international BMX contingent will next compete at the third round of the 2008 UCI Supercross World Cup in Copenhagen, Denmark, May 9-10 before the men will compete for a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Chula Vista, Calif. On June 14.

Today's BMX Racing News - Tuesday, April 15, 2008



The Tangent/BAWLS factory team is back to healthy and it showed this weekend in the Great Northwest. The full amateur team loaded up and made the haul to Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Redmond Oregon where the ABA hosted this year’s Great Northwest Nationals.  It’s the newest indoor facility on the circuit and it proved to be the perfect venue.  The arena and track were awesome and it made for some great racing for the riders and fans alike.   

Being so far north we didn’t really know what to expect as far as turnout for this late winter National.  All the hype and a new indoor facility must have really got people excited because when motos where posted on Saturday morning there was an astounding 200+ moto count!!  With that high rider count and a good amount of Factory competitors we knew we were really going to have to turn in on.  And the Tangent/ BAWLS Factory Team did just that.  When the dust settled on the weekend the team had picked up its two best scores of the year.  A 2nd behind Factory Answer on Saturday and a first ever WIN for the Tangent/ BAWLS Team on Sunday!!  Here’s how it all went down…  

After missing Arizona with a broken wrist, the little man Jacob Abbe was back on his bike and ready to get back up on the podium.  Some great riding and a little luck put Jacob 4th in class on Saturday and a Sunday Double, winning 11-12 Open and 11 Expert!!  Jacob’s wrist is feeling better by the day and to prove it further he put on a show for the ABA tear down crew doing berm to berm transfers after the races.  Look for him to back to 100% and ripping it up again in Tulare next month. 

Not to be out done by his brother, our newest Factory Rider and Jacob’s older brother Nate Abbe stepped to the plate and had an outstanding performance on his brand new Tangent loaded Intense race bike capturing 2nd both days in 13 expert.  Nate’s been hanging around the pits and riding locals for some time now and it looks like he’s finally decided to get back into the national scene full force…We’re expecting big things from this guy! 

Teammate and class runner to Nate, Blake Paulson showed why he’s rockin’ the Tangent/ BAWLS colors this weekend as well.  Blake always has his Fly uniform clean but on Saturday hit the ground in the last corner of the 13x main getting it a little dirty.  On Sunday, with a fresh new uni, he came back with a huge 3rd place finish right behind teammate Nate.  The 2 – 3 podium was an awesome closer for the weekend in 13x. 

Riley continues to impress everybody on the circuit with another pair of wins in 16x.  It goes to show that training with past X-Games Champ Brandon Meadows makes you really fast.  Riley was rolling his Sinz wheel set to more first place laps that you could count, and with two seconds in open and the win both days in 16x we don’t see him slowing his roll one bit going into Tulare! 

Tyler made the trip up from San Diego with the Abbe’s and was the lady of lane 8 as she had it in both of her semi’s and all four of her mains. Tyler made the best of the short first straight and closed the weekend with 2nd and 3rd in 14 girls and 4th and 3rd in 14-16 girl cruiser.  

Tangent’s oldest am Kevin Shankle has had a rocky start this year after severely dislocating his shoulder at the Grands last year.  The slow healing shoulder coupled with a practice crash while getting back into shape has kept Kevin on the sidelines a little more than he’d like this year.  But not even all that is going to keep Kevin down.  He’s feeling a little better and decided to make the trip to Oregon to round out the six man Tangent/ BAWLS Am team.  A couple of Advil and some BAWLS energy got Kevin around the track looking good as new.  Kevin road great and took 2nd behind Phantom’s Jake Pebbles both days.  We’re all looking forward to see what a 100% Kevin has for us next month. 

Now that the team is healthy they showed what a force they can be in the Factory ranks.  The whole team is more pumped than ever and looking forward to the next West Coast ABA tour stop in Tulare.  We hope to see everyone there. 

Tangent/ BAWLS would like to thank all of our sponsors: Tangent Products, BAWLS Guarana, Fly Racing, Intense BMX, Sinz, Thomson, Clifbar, and Riders Pro Shop.

help support a "BMX family in need"


Join our support group for the family of Thomas Bullock. Thomas has played basketball and BMX with our sons for 5 years. Thomas’ father, Thomas Bullock Sr., was hospitalized in January with the flu, then heart failure due to a leaky mitral valve, and spent 2 months in intensive care with pneumonia, fevers and renal failure.


The good news is that he is getting better; the bad news is that his hospital bill is over $500,000 (the maximum of his insurance) and he needs ongoing dialysis and rehabilitation.


The Bullocks are working hard to stay afloat. For 2 months, Thomas got up at 2:30 AM to do the paper route he & his father did together previously, and he (and his sister Jasmine) will take a year off from BMX racing.


We want to support them through this devastating illness and a donation web site has been started to aid them on their road to recovery.

Your gift in any amount will help with medical expenses and the loss of income. If we all give a little, it will make a big difference! Also, Please help us spread the word.

Thanks! - Sarah Goodlin

BMX winner lays claim to an Olympic berth


Official BMX Australia News Release - Sunday 13th April


USA youngster David Herman not only made his first final but won the UCI BMX World Cup Supercross in Adelaide. The 19 year old 'dark horse' of the strong American men’s team blitzed the field beating Latvian. Maris Strombergs. Third was Australian BMX Olympic hopeful, Kamakazi from Queensland. Fellow Australian finalists Luke Madill and Jared Graves finished sixth and eighth respectively.


All top three riders were finalists for the first time and keen to prove that they deserve to be their nation’s chosen riders when the Olympic teams are nominated after the World Championships in Taiyuan in early June.


For Herman, to make a final and win from an outside lane was particularly exciting.


“I slammed my bike on the ground. I was really happy. There was some hugging. I gave Bubba Harris a hug as he made the semi which is good for him. We’re a cheerful group over here,” Herman said.


I am 19 and many people think I am heading for the next Olympics (London). That’s what people think I should be going for but I’m here and I’ve been working hard.”


The main reason I did so well was that I wasn’t expecting to do so well. I wasn’t nervous. I was the most nervous for my first moto and then I was relaxed.”


Surprisingly, Herman was the only USA rider to make the final even though fellow team-mate Donny Robinson claimed the fastest time trail.. Favorites, Robinson and Mike Day (USA) both failed to make the final.


Strombergs was a little disappointed with his second place but it was the Australian, Kamakazi, who received the applause from the large Adelaide crowd.


“I was pretty lucky to get to the final. This is only my second Supercross and first final so I’m thrilled,” smiled Kamakazi.


In the women’s race world number one rider Sarah Walker from New Zealand claimed victory. The 19 year old punched the air at the finish line after a fall in the first race of the day saw her avoid injury.


“I thought I would not be walking off the track after that but my day got better,” Walker said.


My gates hadn’t been good all day. I chose a wide lane and got a free run into the first corner.”


This World Cup Supercross was the first race of the season for the women.


“It has been a long time, I have ridden on this sort of track since our last Supercross in October last year,” pointed out Walker.


Second was the improving Arielle Martin from the United States while Canadian rider, Samantha Cools placed third. Australia’s National Champion, Tanya Bailey claimed fourth while team mate, Nicole Callisto finished a creditable seventh.


With the Australian riders backing up next week for the National Championships in Adelaide there is one final Supercross event before the UCI BMX World Championships which marks the end of the Olympic selection races.

Intense BMX/Bawls Gurana Pro Team Race Report

UCI BMX Supercross Adelaide, Australia 

April 12-13 2008 - Round 2 of the 2008 UCI Supercross series headed over to the southern hemisphere in Adelaide, Australia, the 5th largest city in Australia. The Adelaide show grounds is the home of the 2009 BMX World Championships and was a perfect setting for the 2nd round of the Supercross series. The 5 event UCI Supercross series is the 2nd most important event in Olympic Qualifying, just under the World Championships.                                              

Intense BMX/Bawls Guarana team Pro David Herman has had the best season of his young Pro BMX career in 2008, as he currently sits #2 in the ABA Pro points and #5 in the NBL. David traveled to round #1 of the UCI Supercross series in Madrid, Spain last month, where he just missed out on the main event. David set out to do his best in Adelaide, as the weeks before it, he traveled from his home town of Denver, Colorado to the USA Olympic BMX training center in Chula Vista, CA, where the USA has built a replica Supercross track. David spent a few days there, getting used to the giant starting hill and high speeds, as well as the huge gapped jumps that are a Supercross standard.

 As practice started, David could tell the trip to Chula Vista paid off, as he felt very comfortable on the track and was riding well. On Saturday, as the time trails would seed the riders for the motos in the event, over 85 riders were on hand to try to qualify for the top 64 spots to move onto the race final. David would finish up 23rd overall and transfer to the finials.

As the race unfolded, David was one of the most consistent riders as he would finish in the top 4 and transfer onto the ¼ finial. Stacked with some of the world’s top riders, as well as many of his fellow USA pros teammates, David placed 4th and went onto the semi final. David would once again have another incredible lap, this time finishing 2nd and making his way to the main event, as the lone USA Pro to do so. As the main event lined up, David was set in gate 8 and had one of his best starts of the night, where he came down the first straight and into the first turn in 2nd place. David was stalking the race leader and was close behind all the way around the track. Going into the last turn, David had made up some ground and was able to pass the race leader and move into the lead and take the biggest race win of his life. This UCI Supercross win propels David as one of the premier Elite Pro riders in the world and will add David to the Team USA BMX race program. David looks forward to the next round in Denmark next month.

The Intense BMX / Bawls Guarana Pro Race team is proudly supported by THE Products, Fly Racing, SINZ Racing Products, Intense Tyre Systems, Shimano, Champion Nutrition, and Ogio.  

Intense BMX frames have been the ABA Bike of the year for 2005, 2006, and 2007. The Intense Podium frames come in 15 different sizes.

We cordially invite Old Skool BMX riders from the period 1978 till 1994 to celebrate the 30 years of existence of the sport of BMX. We will come together and socialize at the location were in 1983 the first outside-USA BMX World Championships took place in Holland at

ATTRACTIEPARK SLAGHAREN (at that time called PONYPARK Slagharen).

At this venue, several years after this Worlds, special designed and prepared BMX TV events were broadcasted Nation wide and among others a European Championship took place as well as 10 European Challenge Cup events, probably well remembered by most of you all.

Besides O.S. riders, also former officials are more then welcome and of course those interested fans/supporters from back then are welcome as well to have a great weekend at the amusement park, socializing, talking history and meeting old friends probably after many years. 

This unique weekend will take place from Friday 3rd till Sunday October 5th 2008.

There is no better place to have this Reunion and Celebration then at Attractiepark Slagharen. 

Wouldn’t it be nice to meet old friends, former competitors and talk about the early days of the sport? Show your children how this sport started out and explaining what their parents mend in the developing of the sport. Besides that, the children can have a great time at the Amusement park itself. 

Just like the old days, a special section of the cottage area has been reserved specially for this happening. Like in the early days, a BMX village will be formed and this is not only at the park itself, but also on the camping-site. The camping-site was a favourite place for many National and International riders and their families.

Eugene, OR:  Redline's robotic manualer DAKOTA SENGER has always dreamed of following in the footsteps of his Pro teammate Bubba Harris; but this is taking it a bit too far. While training for the Great Northwest Nationals in his homestate, Senger crashed hard during sprints and wound up busting up his ankle pretty hard. Wait -- make that VERy hard.

Last year, 12 year old Dakota won the UCi World Champs in Victoria (on Cruiser), and ended the season with an ABA Nag No.1 title; finally putting his name and title on the Redline trailer's "Door of Champs."

With plans already made for a trip to China, to defend his Worlds Cruiser title and 1-up his 2nd place in 20", word had it that Dakota was flyin' faster than ever at the local practice. His new traning program with Ken Cools was payin' off, up until his wreck.

The break required 8 small screws, one plate and 1 large screw. All titanium; of course!

Unfortunately, this injury will end his plans for a repeat in China this May. But watching from the sidelines at the Bend, Oregon national, Senger was already making plans for his big comeback.

"If Bubba can do it, so can I."

Expect to see him back on the track right before the Grands, for a late season charge!

Redline wishes him a speed - yet safe, recovery.

Adelaide BMX Supercross Track gets minor changes...Team Australia Shines!


BMX Australia Official News Release - Australia’s Krystal Cranfield’s (AUS) fell in practice  today and miss her chance of racing the UCI BMX World Cup Supercross in Adelaide over the weekend. The 21 year old landed heavily in the second straight breaking her collarbone perhaps ruining her chance of making an Olympic berth.


With 43 riders entered, the Australian riders not only survived practice but impressed.


“All of the guys looked good and comfortable. Kamakazi and Jamie (Gray) said they felt good out there. Jared (Graves) was doing the first straights really well. Khalen pulled it together at the end,” said Australia's BMX Head Coach, Scott Sharples.


Luke (Madill) had good sections on the track and looked smooth especially in the third strait.”


The girls impressed me today as well. Nicole Callisto dominated the practice today. She was the first girl to do the first straight and Lauren (Reynolds, the junior girl,  was the second.”


Even though Krystal is not on our squad, I was really keen to see her ride a Supercross event.”


Some of the young junior talent also caught Sharples attention, especially local rider Sam Willoughby.


With practice again tomorrow before riders compete in two time trail runs organizers are making some adjustments to the small sections of the track.


During practice, Olympic track builder, Tom Ritzenthaler, kept a close eye on men's and women's sessions and this evening is reforming some of the jumps.


“We’ll make changes on the first and third straits mainly. The first two jumps will get some adjustments. We will shape it for the riders,” said Ritzenthaler.


For all riders in tomorrow's two qualifying runs the aim will be to qualify with the fastest times as only 64 men and 16 women make it through into racing on Sunday.


Racing gets underway at 12.30 pm with the elite women’s first time trail and finishes with the elite men’s second run at 4.30 pm.

Olympic choices make a few BMX absentees In Adelaide

BMX Mania Posts UCI SX Report Page. Schedule Posted, Photos To Follow, Friday After Practice Day! (Click Here Or Above)

Adelaide will add to its list of international Cycling events when it hosts a round of the UCI BMX World Cup Supercross this weekend. Despite being one of the last major international races before the sport debuts at the Beijing Olympics a few of the international riders are notably absent. The French’s decision to leave their women’s team at home this weekend has surprised event organizers and officials.


According to UCI BMX Sports coordinator, Johan Lindstrom, “The French team is sitting comfortably in the lead of the nations ranking, but it’s still surprising that they are not taking this opportunity to race on a BMX Supercross track. There are only two more races remaining for the women leading up to the Games.”

With 18 countries racing this weekend the French women’s team must be confident they have secured ample points to send the maximum number of riders to the Beijing 2008 Olympics which for the women are two riders. The French men are attending and are currently ranked in eight place.

Another noticeable absence is England’s Shanaze Reade. With only two events left to qualify, she is leaving herself only two chances of qualifying for the Olympics.


According to her new coach, Grant White, “Shanaze is missing the Adelaide Supercross event due to the travel involved to such an event. This would impact on her current training phase.”


Reade has had a busy schedule over the last couple of months. She won a gold medal as part of the women’s team in the time trial at the UCI Track World Championships in Manchester, England last month.

Another late exclusion came from the reigning BMX World Champion, Kyle Bennett, from Texas. Last weekend Bennett won the USA National Championships and has decided to rest, but the 28 year old is confident of gaining an Olympic berth with a 42 points lead over any other USA rider on their national ranking scale.


According to Mike King, the USA Olympic BMX Coach, “Kyle decided to tone down his travel commitments and if you do the math he still could be in the lead even without racing this weekend.”

Donny Robinson and Mike Day will fly the flag for the strong men’s USA team, with the pair currently ranked third and sixth in the world respectively. The USA men’s team currently dominate the nations ranking with a massive 590 points. Their nearest rival is the Netherlands with 410 points closely followed by the Australians with 407 points.

For the Australian team the event on home soil means that for the first time they have no travel or time zone difficulties. Other teams having the challenge of traveling from their winter and for some teams an uncommon 24 hour flight to recover from. All this and a rowdy crowd should add up to a nice home town advantage for the Aussies.

While the Australian men’s team is looking strong with their current position it will be interesting to see if the absence of the top French team will give the Australian women’s team an advantage and a chance to move up the rankings. But with some of the lower teams scrambling to get in the top four they will have their work cut out for them.

According to BMX National Assistant Coach, Wade Bootes, the absence of the French women could have some repercussions for the Australian women’s points. With the top French team usually claiming top points there will be more points available. If some of the lower ranked countries make the final it could affect the Australian women’s current ranking.

“Without the French team now, the Australian girls will have to finish higher than the American girls on the weekend to help keep their chance alive for a possible two spots for the Olympics,” explained Bootes. Australia’s women are currently ranked second but the European countries still have two rounds of their Continental series after the Supercross event in Adelaide so they still can earn points,” Bootes said.

Australia has the largest contingent of women riders entered, a total of eight and Bootes expects to get several of them into the final.

Practice on the newly built track will get underway on Friday mid-day with racing starting on Saturday at 12.30 pm with the time trail qualification runs. The top 64 men and the top 32 women will proceed into the action packed final on Sunday.

Action should be fast and furious, so if you are in the area, get down to cheer on the Aussies.

Intense/Phantom/On-Trac Goes Big in Texas!


DeSoto’s Metroplex BMX facility is one of the absolute best racing venues in the United States and one of only two permanent, covered BMX tracks in the US.  This weekend the world class venue was host to the ABA’s two-day Super National.  What a great weekend of racing.  As always a handful of our riders really shined. 


In the Pro divisions, we had a handful of podium finishes.  Dominique “Demolition” Daniels had some fierce battles with Alise “the Beast” Post and notched up a 2nd and 3rd for the weekend.  The “Quiet Man” Chad Street also had his hands full with some sick racing between him and Supercross’ Keith Fallen.  Chad also takes home a 2nd and 3rd for the weekend.  Finally, Intense/Phantom/On-Trac’s newest young gun and Pro Kris Fox rode smooth as silk all weekend taking a fine 3rd place on Friday.  Sunday he put it al together and not only took home the W – I – N on Sunday, but also taking home his first big paycheck home to proud Mom and Dad, Staci and Shawn.  Congrats on your first win of many!


We had a handful of our ladies at the weekend who also had some outstanding efforts.  Kristen Long, never far from a mischievous grin, doubled for the weekend in 11 girls.  In 12 girls, “Fly’n” Felicia Stancil took care of her business also with a double.  The outstanding performance by a gal in yellow for the weekend had to come from Taylor Wolcott who continues to dominate her class and do so with style!  Taylor completes a great double-double in 14 girls and 13-14 mixed open, again, showing the pre-pubescent boys how it’s done.  Finally, teammate Shelbi Long had some decent finishes of her own taking a 2nd and a 1st in 16 girls. 


The grommet crew was out in force leading the way for the boys.  “Mini-Nic” Shayne Lewis continues his streak of wins with another pair in 7X.  His little teammate “Vicious” Vaughn Herrick has a streak of his own going this year and he, too, scored another pair of wins doubling in 8X and taking a 1st and 2nd in 7-8 Open.  Chris Blevins explodes out of the gate like a cannonball and it serves him well again this weekend as Chris yet again wins both days on both bikes in 10X and 10 Cruiser.  Seanie, Seanie Gaian had a respectable weekend of his won as well taking four 2nds in 12X and 11-12 Open and pulled off one of the best moves of the weekend with a 2nd turn swoop on Sunday to lock down his finish.  Sweeeeeeet.


This time of year is always entertaining for us in the 14X class with both Billy “Bad Boy” Russell and Rusty “Razzleberry” Nesvig vying for top gun.  As an added incentive, DeSoto is Billy’s home track and he was even in the local newspaper Friday morning.  Throw in OFR’s powerful Jordan Ryan into the mix and we had some great battles ALL weekend!  Billy had no problem putting away the 14 Cruiser class, but when it came to 14X, he and Rusty each traded wins and 2nd places.  Rusty also put away the 13-14 Open class handily. 


The “Conman” Connor Fields had his hands full as well battling with Sun-Bru’s KJ Romero, one of the most lethal turn-meisters of any of the expert classes.  Conman doubles in 14X and 14 Cruiser Friday.  On Sunday, he parked the cruiser and KJ pulls off an awesome bump-move in turn one, taking the win.  “Quick” Nic Long took care of business as usual and notched up another double-double in 17-24X and 17 and over Open. 


At the end of the weekend, the team managed a pair of 212 scores winning on Friday and tying for the win Sunday with local folks Sun-Bru.  The team continues to sit atop the Factory Team Table in first place. 


As always, we’d like to thank our super sponsors who help make our success happen.  They are:  Intense BMX (, On-Trac Garage Doors (, Phantom BMX Products, Fly Racing, Bombshell (,  FSA (, THE Products (, SINZ Racing (, Intense Tire Systems, ( ), Group D (, and Scott goggles (

SE Racing  adds 4 New Rippers to the 2008 Roster


SE Racing is please to announce the addition of David Bittner, Korban Corbett, Brandon Shcreuder and Cole Accord to the Factory Team for the 2008 season.


David Bittner hails from Fresno, CA. Bittner will be sporting the Winged Jersey while competing in the Vet Pro Classes of both the ABA and NBL, keeping the NorCal Pull and tradition alive and well. His addition to the team gives SE added exposure in the Pro Class AND a solid contender for the coveted Vet Pro Titles in both sanctions. When Dave is not working his regular 9-5 as a Finance Manager, you can catch him tearing up the local Fresno Tracks on His 2008 PK Ripper Team Bike.


Korban Corbett is one of two riders picked up from the infamous Inland Empire (Victorville, CA). He will be tearing up the local tracks and national scene in the Older Amateur Classes

(19-27x & 21-25 Cruiser). His decision to come on board gives the winged crew a strong rider in these classes and a solid top 3 podium finisher throughout the year. Expect to see Korban flying  his Floval Flyer to the winners circle throughout the year and making us proud! When Korban is not riding trials or tearing up the track you can catch him working at Circuit City in the High Desert and attending college for Graphic Arts.


Brandon Schreuder is the other addition from the 760. Brandon will be sporting the Baby Blue  and Silky Chocolate Colors in the 15x and 24” Cruiser Classes. He is a serious threat on and off the track and we expect to be seeing him bringing his 08’ Quad or PK Ripper Team to many top podium finishes. In addition to racing BMX Brandon IS A MOTOCROSS RACING STUD!. He translated his BMX skills and talents and been tearing up the local motocross scene. Don’t be surprised in the near future you hear his name lining up on the gate next to Bubba or Reid on the AMA Series. 


Cole Accord is keeping it real for the SE crew out of Sylvester, GA. His will be competing on a Ripper X in the 10 yr old Expert Class. For 2007, this Lil Ripper took a 5th at the Worlds, won the Florida State Title and has been the Georgia State Champion for his age group for the last 3

years. His favorite food is Fried Chicken Salad and his is keeping it real out at the Chehaw BMX Track .



Double A Marketing/BMX BMX Race Report

NBL Pacific Nationals Whittier Narrows, CA


Round #4 of the 2008 NBL Pro Series was held this past weekend in Southern California at the newly reopened Whittier Narrows BMX track. One of the best BMX race tracks in So Cal, the Whittier Narrows track has been a favorite among the Pros and the race action was top notch. With a huge NBL West Coast turnout, it was a great weekend for BMX racing and the Double A Marketing Pros took full advantage of it and the wins in the Elite Pro Class both days. Here is how the Pros finished up:                                         


Kyle Bennett has been an unstoppable force over the past year and this weekend was no different. Kyle only raced on Saturday at the Pacific Nationals, as he was originally scheduled to travel to Australia for the UCI Supercross. Kyle has been racing a lot lately and wanted to take some much needed time off, so he decided to race just on Saturday and then return home to get some rest. Kyle came to win and did just that, as he took the lead as soon as the gate dropped in the main event and stayed out front. Add another win in the NBL series for Kyle. Kyle's Sponsors include Free Agent, FLY Racing, UGP, Shimano,, Bombshell, Sun Ringle, Kenda, Thomson, KHS, S & M bars, Cyto Sport, and ORP.


Randy Stumpfhauser was looking for another good weekend of racing and he would leave Whittier with a great result. On Saturday, Stumpy was back out front all day leading up to the semi, where a first turn crash put him over the berm and out of the main event, On Sunday, Randy decided to just stay way out front all day to avoid the wrecks and he did that all the way to the win in Elite Men's. It was great to see Randy atop the Podium again and he looks to win back the NBL #1 Pro title he once held. Randy's sponsors include GT Bicycles, Bombshell, ODI, Tangent, Fly Racing, Sinz, Shimano,, OGIO, Cyto Sport, Power Bar, SDG, Toolshed, Sharp, and


Cristian Becerine has been looking extremely fast and this weekend was no different. On Saturday, Cristian was out front and looking to be one of the riders to beat and in the main event, it was an all out battle between him and Kyle with Cristian having to settle for 2nd overall. On Sunday, Cristian was flying all day again, until the semi where he crashed while in the lead. Unfortunately he didn't make the main event, but he did add another great score over the weekend in the NBL title chase. Cristian's sponsors include Free Agent, KHS, Fly Racing, SINZ, Kenda, THE Products, ODI, Sun Ringle, Shimano, Powerbar, Cyto Sport, S & M bars, OGIO, Thomson, and

Today's BMX Racing News - Saturday, April 5, 2008


The USAC race had long been anticipated for a variety of reasons.  Qualifying to race the UCI Worlds in China, bragging rights here at home and the first cooperative venture between the ABA and USAC.


The crowds who filled the stands were not disappointed at race time with some great competition and a smooth, efficient race that went off on time and included some of the best announcing at a BMX race ever from everyone’s down-home favorite announcer, Mr. Jim Reilly.


The three round qualifying system made for some super battles when more than one big dog got into the same moto.  Many of our Intense/Phantom/On-Trac riders took part and an awful lot of hardware was the result!


All in all, Intense/Phantom/On-Trac riders garnered 17 medals, 14 of them Gold.


With twelve (12) individual United States Champions, Intense/Phantom/On-Trac has more national champions than any other team in the sport.  Here’s how our riders fared:

Kristen Long 13 Girl 2nd    
Taylor Wolcott 15 Girl 1st 17-24 Girls Cruiser 1st
Shayne Lewis 8 Boys 1st    
Vaughn Herrick 9 Boys 1st    
Christopher Blevins 10 Boys 1st    
Sean Gaian 12 Boys 1st

We’d like to thank both the riders and our parents for all each of you do to make this team and our extended “family” as competitive and professional as it is.  We’d also like to thank the ABA and USAC for a well run, professional and entertaining championship.

Factory Pryme USAC Championship Race Report

The second annual USAC National Championships and ABA Super Nationals were held this past weekend in Desoto, TX. The Factory Pryme team was in attendance and had a great weekend.

Amy McIntyre took home the USAC National title for 12 and under girl cruiser (see attached pic). She also took care of business at the nationals, making all six mains despite an all NAG moto in class. Doc Graham, with a bum shoulder, pulled off two wins in 51-55 cruiser.

Bridget would have won both days if it weren't for a pesky little thing like having her stem crack going into the first turn while winning Friday's main. A new stem equaled a win on Sunday. Preston Barley has arrived; two seconds in the ultra tough 9X class. Kyle McArthur was right there, too, with a third and fourth in 10X.

Ryan Macdonald was in the 14X main both days as was Marc McArthur in 7X. Joel "Candy Pants" House found his way to three mains. The recent birthday boy, Cody McArthur, struggled, but he'll be back on top really soon. Tiva Feltman came back from injury, testing herself on Sunday; and making the 14 girls main in the process.

As soon as Kim Vanderpas gets a class of her own she'll own it, still managing a fourth racing the young ones. John Powell (31-35 cruiser) made his return to BMX a good one with mains on Friday and at the USAC race. Great to see you back, John. Next stop is the ABA Mid America Nationals in Blue Springs, MO.

2008 ABA BMX PRO Standing through Super Nationals - Desoto, TX

The American Bicycle Association hosted the Super Nationals this past weekend, March, 27-30 in Desoto, TX. The racing at the Super National event was just that, SUPER! The city of Desoto, TX. and the Metroplex crew really stepped it up with a brand new covered staging addition to the facility being added just for this event. ABA BMX ace track builder, Billy Allen, also built a very challenging track just for this event. This was the third PRO Series event of the year and Metroplex facility has become one of the PRO Riders favorite stops on the tour. The Metroplex BMX facility was the first of it's kind in the world and it has some of the best dirt in the country. The, fans, riders, and industry all come out in full force each year for this event.

With the 2008 Olympic debut just around the corner for BMX racing, the buzz and hype is all around. There is getting to be more and more of the media frenzy at each event. Many of the sports top athletes from around the world were on hand to take a shot at getting some much needed points towards the ABA BMX titles.  The 2008 season is shifting into high gear and the fans are loving it! Round three continued to be Danny C.and David Herman show.

They were spotted all over the PRO podiums on the weekend. "DR" Donny Robinson made an appearance for the fans in Desoto and nailed down a solid second in AA PRO on day #1. Past 3-time ABA National #1 PRO, Bubba Harris, continued to show the fans he's on the comeback trail. Bubba was seen making some of his patented swoop moves in the turns and looked great through the rhythm sections. It was great to see Bubba back up on the podium and I expect to see that a lot more from the former champ! Current ABA National #1 PRO, Danny "Easy Money" Caluag, continued his win streak of at least winning one at each of the ABA BMX PRO series stops. "Easy Money" brought home his third AA PRO win of the season on day one. Day #2 saw Danny C. in the main but some tough racing kept him off the box. Danny is proving once again his ABA National #1 PRO tile was no fluke!

Day #2 saw Kyle Bennett take his first AA PRO win of the year. Kyle looks to be making a very strong bid for the USA's first ever BMX Olympic team. Kyle seems to be on a mission and on track to be in China in 2008. One thing's for sure, Kyle is one exciting guy to watch! David Herman put in another solid ride on day #2 with a second for the day and his performance for the weekend also moved him up to 2nd in the ABA BMX PRO points battle charts behind team mate Danny C. Day #2 also saw Randy Stumpfhauser back on the podium. Randy looked to be one of the fastest guys all weekend. Which was a surprise considering he was just coming off a bad injury. Stumpy is about as solid as they come in the PRO ranks and you can never count the guy out for a win.    

On the Ladies side we saw the return of ABA National #1 ladies PRO Alise Post. Everyone was excited to see the showdown between Alise and Dominique Daniels. And the ladies didn't disappoint the fans! They battled out all weekend long and the Metroplex stands were going crazy! Alise showed why she's #1 and stood on top of the box both days. Dominique stayed strong and showed she's know "rookie" taking home a 2nd and 3rd for the weekend. Day #1 saw Amanda Geving on the box with a solid 3rd. Day #2 saw another rookie PRO sensation Rachel Luna finish up the day with a solid 2nd. The ladies racing has really stepped it up over the last couple of years and the new crop of younger woman is very promising for more excitement to come.

Pro Cruiser was the ABA National #1 PRO Cruiser rider Danny C., Kenth Fallen, and Tyler Brown battling out this weekend. These three went at it toe to toe and when the dust settled it was Tyler Brown with a one, two for the weekend. Danny C. had a bad crash on day #1's main event, but he came back strong on day #2 win another big win. Kenth Fallen hung tough with a two and three for the weekend. Mike Gul showed he can still hang with the big boys and nailed down a 3rd on day #1. The PRO Cruiser battle charts have really tightened up and it should be a very interesting season to see who comes out on top.

Vet Pro was one heck of a show between Fallen, Chad Street, and Tim Dinger. Kenth Fallen continued to show he`s the man to beat in Vet PRO right. Kenth picked up the VET PRO win both days and now looks to be stretching out his points lead for the season. Chad Street looked as fast as ever and was all over Kenth most of the weekend. Chad had some bad luck come main time, but many of fans were calling the home town boy for a win. Chad was able to bring home a 2nd and 3rd for the weekend. Another rider that continues to impress is the skinny kid out of North Carolina. Tim Dinger has some blazing speed and skills to pay the bills. Many say Dinger made the move of the weekend when Chad Street went down in turn two in front of Dinger and Tim just bunny hopped him and didn't miss a beat on the track. It was a very impressive piece of riding I must say. Both Street and Dinger look to be title contender come ABA Grands time!

The ABA, the city of Desoto, TX. and the entire Metroplex crew would like to thank all the participants, families, teams, sponsors, and BMX industry for helping make the Desoto, TX. event such a huge success!

Aussie Team train on Olympic track

Preparation for Adelaide selection Supercross

Australia's BMX Team was put through their paces today, in a four hour long training session in Penrith, west of Sydney. Eleven members of Australia's high performance team rode the Beijing Olympic replica track. The 350 metre long track features a three-storey high starting ramp.

The track was built by world number five, Luke Madill to gain him an advantage leading up to the sport's debut at the Beijing 2008 Olympics. The 27 year old now has one of only three similar tracks in existence. Riders will face a similar starting ramp and track at the upcoming UCI BMX World Cup Supercross at the Adelaide Showground on 12 – 13th April. Adelaide is one of only three remaining selection events for the Australian team before Beijing.

While several of the elite riders have raced on this style of track, junior elite riders got a glimpse of what is in store for them when they compete at the Supercross in Adelaide.

With the Adelaide track being built just days before competition, Australia’s assistant BMX coach, Wade Bootes, claimed it would cut down the time it takes for riders to familiarize themselves with this style of track.

Testing was also conducted while riders practiced gate starts, jumps and tricky sections of the track as they hone their skills for Adelaide in a week’s time.

Kyle has won all the important races in the USA for the Olympic selection so far this season and at the USAC National Championships, he kept that streak alive. Kyle won the Elite Men's class on Saturday night, adding another title to his impressive list, as well as more points towards becoming the automatic selection athlete for team USA.

Danny Caluag has already had an impressive start to the 2008 ABA season with 2 AA Pro wins in 4 ABA Pro Races. Danny looked to continue his successful ABA Pro season at day 1 of the ABA Super Nationals. Danny did just that, as he took home another huge AA Pro win at the end of the night. On Saturday, at the USAC National Championship, Danny once again was in the Pro main event. Danny rode a great lap and just missed out on the win, finishing 2nd overall in Elite Men. On Sunday, Danny was back atop the Podium again, this time in Pro Cruiser. Danny also once again was in the AA Pro Main event, where he placed 5th overall. Danny's sponsors include Intense BMX, Bawls Gurana, FLY Racing, Shimano, THE Products, OGIO, SINZ,, Group D, Oakley, Thomson, Intense Tyre Systems, Cyto Sport, and


Randy Stumpfhauser has had a rough start of the 2008 season, with an injury he suffered at the opening round of the UCI Supercross race series in Spain. Randy is just getting back to form from that injury and made his way back to the Podium on Sunday at the Super Nationals. Randy finished up 3rd overall and looked impressive all weekend, letting his fans know he is back on track and looking for a 2008 Pro title. Randy's sponsors include GT Bicycles, Bombshell, ODI, Tangent, Fly Racing, Sinz, Shimano,, OGIO, Cyto Sport, Power Bar, SDG, Toolshed, Sharp, and

On Sunday, he was once again in the main and this time finished up 6th for the day. The results may not sound utterly impressive, but just to be in the AA Pro main event these days takes all the skill and speed few riders have. Cristian's sponsors include Free Agent, KHS, Fly Racing, SINZ, Kenda, THE Products, ODI, Sun Ringle, Shimano, Powerbar, Cyto Sport, S & M bars, OGIO, Thomson, and

Team ABD Report – New Zealand BMX Championships 2008

During the Easter weekend, the New Zealand BMX Championships were held and this year  at North Avon, Christchurch – which is in the South Island.

This was the first nationals in NZ to have the random gate, which went down well with all most riders. The start hill was very flat, but had a fast first straight. Team ABD was out in force with team signings, media interviews and great racing.

Sarah Walker was unbeatable all weekend, with a good lead up to some major events coming this year. Victoria Hill was close on her tail in most races, showing that as a young junior she has some potential as she heads to the World Champs.

Auckland’s master veteran, Richard Mclachlan riding only his cruiser this weekend and first time back into the age group. He had a great win to add to his list of national titles over the last 22 years. Shane Eady backed up his last year’s number two with another one this year in a tough age group of 16 year old boys.

Taranaki’s Rhys Telford in Elite Men had an amazing race, with Marc Willers winning from start to finish; the other riders were fighting it out behind. Rhys got a great start and popped himself into third, but having some trouble holding this going into the third straight, got passed and had to settle for sixth.

World Champion, Kyle Bennett (USA) will be one of many strong American riders along with the fastest time trial qualifier from the Madrid Supercross, Mike Day (USA). Last year’s overall winner of the Supercross Series, Robert “Afro-Bob” De Wilde (NED) bowed out in the semi-final in Madrid. as did Australia's Luke Madill after qualifying third fastest in Madrid. Queensland's Jared Graves and Kamakazi will look to improve their chances on home soil. A return to the World Cup Supercross by Perth’s Khalen Young is anticipated after Young won the first Supercross World Cup in Madrid last season.

This round is the first Supercross event for women the season with a strong contingent from France expected. Last year's World Cup series winner, Laetitia le Corguille (FRA), will be tested by current world number one Sarah Walker (NZL). Two former mountain champions, Anne-Caroline Chausson (FRA) and Jill Kintner (USA) are displaying good form while Australia’s own Nicole Callisto is expected to better her fifth place in the World Cup series last year.

ABA Super Nationals / USAC National Championships


Desoto, Texas March 28-30. 2008


Round 3 of the 2008 ABA Pro Series, the ABA Super Nationals was held in conjunction with the 2008 USA Cycling National Championships at the Desoto BMX Track. The Desoto BMX facility is one of the nicest BMX arenas in the USA. This was the 2nd year for the USAC National Championships and this year it has become part of the Olympic Selection events for the Elite Men.


Danny Caluag, the 2007 ABA #1 AA and Pro Cruiser rider has already had an impressive start to the 2008 ABA season with 2 AA Pro wins in 4 ABA Pro Races. Danny looked to continue his successful ABA Pro season at day 1 of the ABA Super Nationals. Danny did just that, as he not only easily made his way into the AA Pro Main event, but he took home another huge AA Pro win at the end of the night. On Saturday, at the USAC National Championship, Danny once again was in the Pro main event. Danny rode a great lap and just missed out on the win, finishing 2nd overall in Elite Men. On Sunday, Danny was back atop the Podium again, this time in Pro Cruiser. Danny also once again was in the AA Pro Main event, where he placed 5th overall. This capped off another great weekend for Danny.


David Herman, the 2007 ABA rookie Pro of the year, has also had a great start of the 2008 season, as he currently sits in 2nd place in the ABA Pro ranks. On Friday, David made the AA Pro main event and finished up 4th overall for the day. On Saturday, David was on his way into the main event at the USAC Championships, but a last turn crash while leading the semi ended his day. David came back more determined on Sunday, and his 2nd place in the AA Pro Main event shows that this young Pro has what it takes to be one of the best.


Both riders look forward to the upcoming events. First they will head over to the NBL Pacific Coast Nationals in Southern California on April 5-6 for NBL Pro Series event and then on Sunday night, they depart to Round #2 of the 2008 UCI Supercross series in Adelaide, Australia.

Supercross BMX adds Olympic Hopeful Mens Elite to the Factory Team

Welcome to the team Downtown Tyler Brown


For Immediate Release ­ Apple Valley, CA

Two weekends ago at the UCI Round 9 and 10 at the NBL Gator Nationals the BMX world got to see Tyler Brown take his first laps as a Supercross BMX Factory Team member.


After privateering on a Supercross EVO iS at the start of the season it seemed like it was only going to be a matter of time before Tyler joined the Supercross BMX family. "


After hanging out in the Supercross pits at the Goodyear Nationals and UCI race where Tyler took his first UCI Podium and then after hanging out with Sammy in Madrid where Tyler made his first UCI SX main we knew Tyler was a perfect fit for the team". Said Supercross BMX owner Bill Ryan.

Tyler and Supercross BMX just seem to agree with each other. And after watching how fast Tyler makes his Supercross EVO iS go, we are sure you will agree.

Tyler didn't have the best of luck his first weekend as an official Supercross BMX team member. He looked to be the man to beat after winning all 3 of his motos and quarter on Friday and not only winning but winning with style as he kept throwing down little moto whips while leading, but that good luck came to an end both days as unclipping in his Semi on Friday and crashing into Redmans' Steven Cisar as he came unclipped in Saturday's semi kept him out of the mains. But Tyler took it all in stride and kept smiling while he signed autographs for the fans.

Look for big things out of Tyler and his Supercross BMX team mate Samantha Cools as the both get ready to try to take their shot for Olympic Gold this summer in Bejing.

For more information on Sammy, Tyler, Kenth and the entire Supercross team is up to check out for news and product updates and more.
