National Bicycle League Describes Broad Changes for 2011 Season

CEO Gary Aragon Speaks Candidly About the Need for Across-the-Board Changes

GAHANNA, OH (August 16, 2010) — NBL BMX CEO Gary Aragon recently unveiled what is being called, the New NBL...for the 2011 NBL Nation Season.

“Since my first day on the job, I’ve been aware that rider and track needs required closer attention,” said Mr. Aragon.  “Over the last several months, it has been my principal focus to pursue solutions to those needs and implement the changes that will bring us to the next level of BMX competition.”

According to Mr. Aragon, the New NBL represents sweeping changes to nearly every aspect of BMX Racing in the National Bicycle League; changes that will positively impact member riders, tracks and the BMX Nation.

“One of the most significant changes is the removal of all fees that tracks currently pay to the NBL. Instead, the NBL will pay tracks to run races for the sanction,” added Mr. Aragon. “Another, very significant change is that the New NBL will allow members to pay a low monthly fee for All-You-Can-Ride access to local, regional and national racing.”

Mr. Aragon noted that these two concepts have been carefully tested in a significant sampling of tracks in the Nation, and with the new model, tracks benefited significantly – posting thousands of dollars in revenue above the existing model. Members will also save a considerable amount of money and will have the added benefit of paying their racing costs over the year, in smaller increments.

Other changes that are under consideration for the 2011 Season, are.....
*A name change for the NBL Elite Series, to the NBL NationsTour(TM) -  The Professional BMX Tour
*An expansion of Pro Payouts, soaring to $41,430 per race with 1st Place prize money of a staggering $8,000 for Elite Men and $4,800 for Elite Women!
*A reduction in the number of pro races, from 11 currently to 5 for the 2011 NBL NationsTour(TM).
*Name change for the Novice Class. The new class will be called the Challenger Class.
*New membership levels for the New NBL.
* LOCAL = All-You-Can-RideTM local racing at any outdoor track in the Nation with no entry fees. There may be indoor fees to cover the added cost of indoor facilities depending on track. There may also be trophy fees depending on track. Includes both 20” and Cruisers!
* CHALLENGER = All the benefits of the LOCAL membership PLUS All-You-Can-RideTM. Challenge Championship Series racing with no entry fees. Includes both 20” and Cruisers!
* CHAMPION = All the benefits of LOCAL and CHALLENGER membership PLUS All-You-Can-RideTM National Championship SeriesTM racing. Includes both 20” and Cruisers!
*Moving from a once a year paid membership and paid entry fees at all races to a monthly fee on three levels with no paid entry fees and the New NBL "All-You-Can-RideTM" plan with no entry fees.
*The ‘Drop Club’ - Special national level awards for collecting gate drops in NBL competition, at all levels of racing in 500, 1000, 2500 & 5000 gate drop recognition.

Schanewolf PeachTree City Race Report

The chance for rain didn’t scare the loyal following of Schanewolf racers from North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida from making the trip to the last stop on the calendar before the NBL Grands.  The crew hit this race in force with a few of our riders already capped, but looking to stay sharp for the final rendezvous with Grands in just a few weeks.  With the bonus cash on the line for team competition and a hunger to pick up few more team points, team Schanewolf was in the house ready to get it on.

Saturday at the Regional championship saw many of the Schanewolf riders at the sharp end of the mottos and scoring wins in the main events.  With the long delay due to mother nature,  many of the team riders were already back at the hotel.  After receiving word that the race would continue, we gathered the crew to head back to the track for the main events.  The wait for the mains was well worth it.  Highlighting the day was Schanewolf rider  “The Beaster” Bryce Easter.  Bryce managed to pick up his first Expert main event win in the ultra competitive 9X class.  This young man has been training hard at his local track with the likes of Jeremy Thompson and other top NAG riders.  I have a feeling this is just the beginning of a great expert career for this young shredder.  Also having a great weekend was Chris “Diesel” Pease.  Chris managed a 2nd  on Saturday and took the main win on Sunday after going perfect in the motto’s.  Other winners on the day were Kaitlin Wightman in 7 Girls, Kavin Bradner in open.  Other podium finishes and main makers were:

In the team competition Schanewolf tied for 1st with Intense Dynapep on the day, however, The boys in blue took top honors as C.J. McGwire winning the Pro Open broke the tie.

Masato Pischke 11X - Mikey Hewitt, 10X - Jamie McHenry 8 Girls - Christopher Mchenry 8/under Cruiser - Wyatt Parker, 6 Rookie - Ken Robison 41 Expert / Cruiser - Rebecca Robison 12 Girls - Jake Pischke 16 Nov - Jordan Riggins 12 Nov - Ethan Burns 12X  - Logan Bradfor 12X - Kerri Norberg 45 woman’s / cruiser - Scott Walker 36-40 Nov

 Team Schanewolf heads into the Grands optimistic for a podium finish once it’s all said and done.  Regardless, the team has had a great year  and had allot fun in the process.  We’re looking forward to wrapping up this year the way we started it and are excited to what the future holds for Schanewolf Cyclsport.

Team Schanewolf is now accepting resumes for the 2011 season.  If you think you have what it takes to rock the Yellow & flames, then send me your resume or an e-mail telling me a little bit about yourself.  We’re looking for Novice & expert level riders who compete at the national level throughout the Southeast.

We would like to extend a huge thanks to this year’s team sponsors:  Hyper Bicycles, Fly Racing, Profile, T.HE., SINZ.  Please visit their web sites & support the companies who support BMX!

Alienation BMX Sponsored Riders Take On The World!



The biggest BMX race of the year, the UCI BMX World Championships took place in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. That means many riders from all over the world were there to represent their respective countries. That also means that a TON of Alienation BMX riders were there showing off their mad skills and fresh products for the big show.

We would like to start off with Swatch's own New Zealander, Marc Willers, who is on a huge comeback. Willers showed what he can do when he's fully healthy and on a mission in Qualifying rounds Marc pulled a 1st,2nd,3rd which put him into a stacked quarterfinals He pulled a 3rd in quarter finals which set him up for the main event. With the stacked Main event Willers came out 3rd into the first turn and with a crash ended up with a World 6 title. Congrats Marc for representing well at the worlds! 

Alienation has some of the best Elite Women representing the company and you can't go wrong when you're repping ALIENATION! What a elite women's main event!!!  New Zealand's Sarah Walker rode very consistent as she put her wheels into a 2nd, 2nd, 2nd in qualifying rounds looking really fast, that brought up semis for the top 16 girls and Sarah ended up with a 3rd in a very stacked Semi. In the Main she had a very fast first straight, after the race Sarah was all smiles as she got the WORLD 2 title. 

USA's/Intense's Arielle Martin always reps the country in good fashion, also riding consistent in qualifying rounds she pulled a 2nd, 3rd, 2nd in qualifying rounds, and in the semi she pulled a 2nd. In the Main event which any of the 8 girls could of won, she was running 3rd looking for a podium finish, and she went down in the first corner, tough luck for Arielle, but she will be back as you know she's tough! She ended up with a World 8 title. Thanks Arielle for always being a class act and representing the company so well!!  

Colombia's Mariana Pajon is always one of the girls to beat she raced both class and cruiser and was looking for two titles. Mariana looked really good in qualifying rounds by not losing a lap she pulled a 1st, 1st, 1st in motos. Looking like the girl to beat Mariana was in 8th out of the first turn and pulled to 5th, looking for one spot to give bonked the on the 4th straight rhythm and ended her run for the Elite Woman title. She also raced Elite Woman Cruiser which she pulled WORLD 1. Congratulations on your success. 

Caroline Buchanan from Australia puts in the time and work, and is always 100 percent ready to race. If its Downhill, Fourcross or BMX she gets the job done. In her three qualifying rounds she was 1 of the 3 girls to have a perfect going into semi finals with a 1st, 1st, 1st. In her semi she seemed to have a late gate then clip out mid way down the starting hill causing her not to jump the first double, so it put her behind and she did not transfer out of semis with a 8. Tough luck for Caroline, but we all know what a great and skillful rider she is, so look for her to hit it hard on her way to an Olympic qualifying berth. 

Another Australian Lauren Reynolds rode well for her country and had some tough luck in semi's. In qualifying Lauren pulled a 1st, 2nd, 2nd in her 3 rounds, also in the two crazy semi's Lauren got a 5th and did not transfer to the Main event. We all know as a rider a 5th in a semi can hurt, but Lauren is strong and has a great attitude and has fun riding her bike. She trains hard and most certainly should of been in the main event. Thanks for representing Alienation so well Lauren! 

The third and final Australian representing Alienation was Rachel Bracken. Rachel is one of the well known Elite riders across the world and she showed it in South Africa. Rachel pulled a 5th, 4th, 3rd in her 3 rounds just making it out of qualifying. In her stacked semi she got a 4th to transfer to the Main event. In the Main event Bracken pulled a World 6 title. 

USA'S/Supercross's Nate Padilla has been pushing it hard at the JDP series and has been at the Olympic Training Center putting in some nice work as you can tell on the track. Nate is a very hard worker, and it shows as one of ABA'S top junior development rider and also reps the camps very well out at Chula. Congratulations Nate on a WORLD number  1 sixteen expert title your most certainly deserve it. Thanks for representing the best! 

They call him Frank "The Tank" Hoskins and man is he a character. He represents Addison Bikes' and might be one of the funniest laid back guy you will meet in BMX today. Frank went to South Africa as just recently turned up to the 25-29 class so he had some tough comp on his hands. Well all know Frank can get the job done though. Frank came back to the USA with a World number 4. Congrats Frank!! Represented USA very well. Catch frank at his home track in Louisville Kentucky for the NBL Grand Nationals. 

USA'S Cody Wilson pulled a World number 6. Congratulations man! 

Dan's Comp/USA's Scott Moreland pulled a World number 5 in the 30 and over Men's cruiser class. 

Who could forget Big Daddy GT'S/USA's Eric Rupe he's been in the sport for years and man I don't know about you, but Eric is a man you can always look up to and ask for any advice. He pulled a WORLD number 1 in the 45 and over cruiser class.

All in all, a GREAT week of racers sportin' Alienation BMX gear, be on the lookout for new riders catchin' the vibe, and new product comin' down the track!

Colorado Springs, Colo. (Aug. 26, 2010) — After a year filled with BMX successes, USA Cycling is thrilled to maintain its partnership with Intense BMX  and to expand on efforts to develop America’s extensive pipeline of Bicycle Motocross (BMX) athletes. With a focus on the future, the national governing body will continue to increase its development initiatives, including enhancing the USA Cycling Junior Development Program (JDP) sponsored by Intense BMX.  

As a partner in USA Cycling’s JDP, Intense BMX will provide crucial support for its series of quarterly junior development camps. Intense BMX will not only offer product support, including products from SINZ Racing, Intense Tyres, and THE Products, but will also play an active role at the camps, supporting more than a dozen 15-16 year-old campers who will be in attendance at each of the four annual sessions.

 “This provides a unique opportunity to see some of the country’s top young BMX riders up close on a SX track and also allows us to spend time with the riders off the track. Part of this partnership helps us identify those in the next generation of BMX talent who share our company values and recognize future sponsorship opportunities,” stated Michael Gamstetter, marketing manager of VSI products, the parent company of Intense BMX. 

Last week, USA Cycling welcomed 15 junior men and women to its third JDP instructional camp on the campus of the United States Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. These athletes were selected through the ABA Junior Development series and invited by USA Cycling coaches based on several factors, including past results and future potential. The camp’s agenda included training sessions on the Supercross BMX track, instructional clinics on nutrition, weight training and sports psychology, baseline physiological testing and Q&A sessions with professional BMX riders. 

The August 16-22 camp was the first in the 2011 series which welcomed riders born in 1996 and 1996.  

Complementing the guidance of USA Cycling BMX Programs Director and former world champion, Mike King, several additional coaches provided direction and instruction to camp attendees. U.S. Challenge Class team manager Brian Fell, along with certified USA Cycling coaches and BMX experts Jerry Bradford and Jeff Glynn, served as coaches at the August camp. Toby Henderson and Michael Gamstetter from Intense BMX were also on site with the team support trailer offering assistance to the camp athletes.

Rennen/Intense Summer Race Craziness, Part Two!



Rennen/Intense headed into the second half of the summer with a full schedule, and at the end of a long two-week push, we had scored four team wins, and over 100 kids took part at our summer camp and a clinic. This long stretch began in Severn, Maryland for the ABA's Star Spangled National where the crew captured the Factory Team win both days.


Courtney Applewhite (17-27 girls), Austin Loebe (17-18x), Cameron Moore (12x & cru), and C.J. Fisher (15 cru) all captured main event wins. Allen Currier (A pro), Chris Meaker (36-40x), and T.J. Maniscalchi (12x) finished one step lower on the podium with second place finishes, all helping in the team’s two wins.


From there Courtney, Allen, and Austin headed up to Bethel, Connecticut for our 7th installment of the Bethel Supercross Summer Camp. Pat "Dude, where's my car" Parker joined in on Monday morning as we cranked out a fun-filled day of BMX training that included a rain delay game of kick ball (send it!). Monday night we headed over to New Paltz, New York for a 2-hour instructional clinic where teammate Rochelle Wooding met us for the rest of the week’s activities. Unfortunately we encountered more rain and had to postpone the clinic till Wednesday night.


Tuesday's day camp featured our 2-hour Precision Fitness off the bike-training period featuring Todd Cambio. Our campers learned about Static Stretch techniques, along with relay races and sprints, and numerous footwork and agility station challenges. Tuesday night some of the instructors headed over to Trumbull T.R.A.C.K. for a look at the upcoming weekend’s national tournament course and to take a lap or two in their fifty plus moto local race.

After Wednesday's day camp we headed back up to New Paltz to complete our instructional clinic that had an attendance of just shy of 30 riders, all of whom were fueled with Powerbars. Thursday's camp broke up the monotony of training with individual time trials and head-to-head motos featuring riders of the closest lap times. Rochelle Wooding and Courtney Applewhite gave a special girls only clinic that ended with both of them jumping the big step into turn one to leave a lasting impression on all the 2010 campers. With that we said goodbye to our campers and headed back up to Trumbull to set up camp for the weekend. Friday, the rains came and after catching up on laundry we all got some much-needed down time.


On Saturday it was obvious that we had a FULL team crew in attendance, and with all the fire power present we were able to capture the National Team victory both days and added one important point to our overall leading score as we near the final showdown in Louisville, Kentucky for the NBL Grands.

Here's how your favorite fared at the rumble in Trumbull:


Nick St Lawrence: Back from RI National Guard boot camp and traded in his fatigues for his Black Crown designed team racing jersey and took a 1st and 2nd in the 26-34x class. Max Egdorf: Donned a fresh pair of Fly Patrol race pants and proceeded to crash in them trying to take the lead in day two's 19-25x main. Shawn DiPrete: First national back after a long break and handled the 35-40x class easily using his Profile cranks and cassette hubs. Allen Currier: Used his Morphine handlebars to guide the way to the Super X class podium on day 1.


Austin Loebe: Luscious lubed his Podium with Finish Line products after the long camp week and flew to dominating weekend in the 17/18 expert class only losing one lap all weekend due to a clip malfunction. Rochelle Wooding: Took advantage of all of her riding time during the week and won three out of the three classes she entered over the weekend using Thomson stem and seat post. Susie LeVan: Used her new THE Black Ice helmet to take her final perfect of the season on day 1.


Courtney Applewhite: Took the victory in the 17 + girls class both days using her Sinz carbon pro lite fork. Justin Knapper: Absolutely smoked the 13x class both days, luckily he uses ITS tyres to keep him glued to the turns at the speeds he’s hitting. Erik Meyer: Dominated the 11x class using his Alienation rim bands. Randy Bitinaitis: concentrated on picking up a pair of perfects in 41 & over Expert, and did just that with rocking his custom Johnson plate insert, while his daughter Nikki who was a player in the 11 girls main event both day and looks forward to putting some fresh new purple ODI grips soon.

Once again I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you ALL for your continued support!

Morphine Industries’ Young Guns Hit Peachtree City


With the NBL Grands around the corner, two of our young guns hit Peachtree City for a last chance tune-up before heading to Louisville.


When you head to Georgia at this time of year there is one thing you can count on heat.  Peachtree City did not disappoint as we rolled into town and hit the track on Friday. Before practice, Super X Jason LaRev held a clinic to mold the little minds of BMX with his expertise and knowledge along with the help of Noah Reeves.  Practice was open and the race was looking to have a low turn out as practice ended and attendance was minimal.


However, when Saturday rolled around the moto count hit just above 90 to everyone’s surprise.  The day was looking up but Mother Nature had other plans with rain due to hit the track at some point during the day.  The crew decided to call a two moto transfer to try and beat the rain but it did not happen as the race was delayed just as the main events started.  After a few hours of lounging the call came in and the race resumed.  With the weather on a repeat performance for Sunday, the two moto transfer direction was taken


13X – Noah Reeves had two racks of riders and started his day off asleep at the gate due to an all night road trip from south Florida the day before.  He quickly redeemed himself on the remaining motos taking the wins.  Main time found Noah going wire to wire to take the top spot.


Sunday found Noah at the head of the pack.  No sleeping today.  Sweeping his motos and finishing the day with another top spot in the main.




11X – Richie Dey was in his element with plenty of air to be had on the Peachtree City track.  He displayed his air and ability from the front of the pack all day Saturday with a perfect run in the motos and a top spot in the main.


Sunday found Richie at the front once again.  He led the class from start to finish in his motos and continued on the through the main with a first place finish.


The Morphine Crew will be rolling into Louisville in a few weeks to put an assault on the  NBL Grands.  Be sure to come by and check us out.

ONE/Kenda UCI World Championship South Africa

Christensen WORLD CHAMPION, Byndloss World no. 3 and Hladikova World no. 5

ONE KENDA press release


BMX Mania Editor's Note - Yes, we know, this is two weeks past the race, but it's still good news so we offer it a bit late, but Good Stuff, nonetheless!


The UCI World Championship is just behind us, and what an event it was.

Although ONE/Kenda’s Chris Christensen from Denmark didn’t have the best start…

he did a fantastic 3rd straight which made it possible for him to sprint to the World Title

in the 14 Boys class.



Just like last year his sister Simone took 4th place in 16 girls.

Last years World Champion Maliek Byndloss from the USA has been fast all year, but in the

main of 15 yo Boys he came in contact with the French European Champion on the first straight.

Maliek took 5th. In cruiserclass Maliek took a podium with 3rd place.


In Elite Women ONE/Kenda’s Aneta Hladikova from Czech Republic once again showed she’s

having a great season. In the main she messed up her first straight, but came back to a superb

5th place. In cruiserclass Aneta wanted more but a 5th spot was the final result for her in cruiser, too.


Congrats to our riders for doing so well and thanks to our sponsors for making it all happen.

We are grateful and proud for their support.

McLeod scores bronze for BMX Australia at UCI BMX World Championships

BMX Mania Editor's Note - Yes, we know, this is two weeks past the race, but it's still good news so we offer it a bit late, but Good Stuff, nonetheless!

Queensland's Melinda McLeod has collected the bronze medal in the junior women's final at the 2010 UCI BMX World Championships in Pietermaritzburg.

The 17 year old Mackay schoolgirl qualified fourth fastest in the time trials and comfortably made her way through the qualifying moto rounds to earn a start in the final. But Dutch rider Merle van Benthem proved too fast for her rivals to win the gold medal ahead of American Brooke Crain with McLeod crossing the line in third place.

"I am stoked because I didn't really have any expectations this week," said McLeod who this week made her competition debut off the eight metre start ramp used for Supercross and Olympic Games format competition. "It's been a huge change not just physically but mentally.

"I did lots of training on a ramp so I knew what it would feel like but it's a lot harder with seven other riders around you and you really have to get out of the gate in front," said McLeod who has four World Championship titles to her name from age group competition.

"In the final I had my first experience of banging bars with people down the starting ramp and I was absolutely petrified, it was so scary," said McLeod. "But I thought since I was in the final I might as well go for it and I knew I had everything else sorted so I'm glad I didn't back out."

West Australian Kirsten Dellar (WA) also made the junior women's final but a mishap saw her finish in eighth place more than 30 seconds after the winner.

In the elite men's final Latvian Maris Strombergs reclaimed the rainbow jersey of World Champion holding off local hero Sifiso Nhlapo with Frenchman Joris Daudet third. It was a momentous medal for Nhlapo who was the bronze medalist in 2008 but missed the 2009 event after he broke his neck in an horrific training crash.

A massive pile up on the first turn put paid to Australia's chances with two time junior World Champion Sam Willoughby (SA) and Khalen Young (WA) both crashing out of contention.

"It didn't really go as I'd hoped," said Willoughby. "It was a pretty long day and by the time I got to the final I was starting to cramp up.

"I had a bit of a brain lapse in the gate for the final and got out of the gate a bit late and that cost me," Willoughby explained. "I tried to get it back on the first turn. I had a good line coming out of the corner and the plan was to dive under but my back wheel hit a bump and kicked out."

Australian Head Coach, Wade Bootes, says whilst happy with the overall performances this week he's a little disappointed with the bad luck that struck for some team members.

"Definitely happy with how the riders have been riding with a lot of guys up the front but at crunch time we were hit with a bit of misfortune," said Bootes. "Caroline (Buchanan) got her pants caught in her brake lever our of the gate in the semi final and that cost her a place in the final and then Sam and Khalen crashed.

"It's frustrating because you know they have the pace to claim a medal but stuff happens and you just have to deal with it," said Bootes. "As a program we've done our job and prepared the athletes well and they've done their bit to be well prepared but it's the luck on the day which is hard to take sometimes."

In the women's elite final Britain's Shanaze Reade reclaimed her title leading from the start. New Zealand's Sarah Walker claimed the silver and American Alise Post the bronze medal but neither came close to Reade. Australian Rachel Bracken rode her way into the final but was off the pace early crossing the finish line in sixth place.

The junior men's race saw US favourite Connor Fields out in front and seemingly on his to an easy win but he took the rhythm section too fast and crashed heavily which opened the way for Frenchman Sylvain Andre to grab the win ahead of Kristers Lejins (LAT) and Twan van Gendt (NED). Victorian Matthew Dunsworth was fifth.

In the women's racing world ranked number three Canberra's Caroline Buchanan sits second on the Supercross standings largely due to her third place in the opening round in Madrid.

National BMX Hall Of Fame 2010 Inductees Announced

Two days left on Early Bird Ticket Pricing!!!

Pioneer BMX Racer - Tim Judge - TJ was one of the top stars on the East Coast in the mid 1970s. His fame expanded exponentially after winning the 1981 Jag World Champion title and getting picked up by the legendary Hutch BMX Factory Team. At Hutch, he added a 1983 IBMXF Cruiser World Title to his list of accomplishments. Tim`s BMX experience played a pivotal role in his post-BMX career, when he became an internationally-known racer and mechanic in the Jet Watercraft (JetSki) industry.

BMX Racer - Steve Veltman - The first rider to win the ABA National Number One Amateur and Cruiser titles in the same year (1982), Steve Veltman also stacked up two Jag World Championship Age Group titles, and two IBMXF world age group titles in his amateur career, and was an Elite Cruiser Bronze Medalist at the 1989 World Championships. As a professional, Steve won both the NBL and ABA Grandnationals, and the 1993 ABA National Number One Pro title. He competed in three X Games and raced in the top class for 15 years, retiring in 2004. Steve is the only BMX racer to have ever appeared on a Wheaties cereal box.

BMX Industry - Craig "gOrk" Barrette - Few industries have a person so well known and respected that one name suffices in identifying them. In BMX, it`s "gOrk." As someone who has raced at a national level (UBR national number one sidehack three year running), rode and promoted freestyle shows, worked in the warehouse at CW Racing, and served as editor of both the iconic "BMX Action" and the ABA`s BMXer Magazines, he has made his mark on nearly every era of our sport. In 1999, after 10 years with ABA, gOrk moved to the Pacific Northwest to join Seattle Bike Supply as the Director of Marketing for their flagship brand, Redline. He remains in that role today.

BMX Freestyler - Woody Itson - Most people had their first exposure to Woody Itson in BMX Action`s "Hot Shots" feature, as he blasted an impossibly high air at the Big O Skatepark. This racer-turned-freestyler wowed crowds all over the nation on tour for Vans Tennis Shoes, but it was his riding for Hutch BMX Products that made him a household name. He designed the Hutch Trick Star, one of the most popular bikes of the day, and captured both an AFA and an NFA National Title for Flatland in 1985 ands 1986, respectively. As half of the Diamond Back Freestyle Team, he was "Mr. Flatland" to the "Mr. Air" of Mike Dominguez. After a break to attend college, Woody hung up his riding uniform, and became Freestyle Program Director for the megawatt GT Freestyle Team, where he stayed until 2001. Soon after, he started his current company, Satellite Sports Group, and has since been managing a crew of riders who perform BMX Freestyle shows at over 500 venues each year.

Special Recognition - Linda Dorsey - In honoring someone for whom the sharpest wit and cleverest turn of phrase was as natural as green on grass, words are difficult to wrangle when talking about legendary announcer, Linda Dorsey. Her son, Bryan, probably summed it up as well as any of us could, saying, simply, "BMX was her life." During her three-decades on the mic, Linda was a fixture on the NBL National circuit, served on the NBL Board of Directors, and brought her voice to France and Japan, among other places motos were posted. Linda passed away from cancer in 2008, but announced BMX races with the same fire and passion until three months before the end of her life.

Special Recognition - Al Fritz, father of the Schwinn Sting-Ray - Starting on the welding line of Schwinn`s landmark Kostner Avenue plant in Chicago, Al Fritz worked his way up from the factory floor in 1945, to become the number two man and a member of the Board of Directors at Schwinn Bicycle Company. During a chance Saturday phone call in 1963, a West Coast sales rep told him of a "goofy" fad out there, where kids were "buying used 20" bikes and equipping them with Texas Longhorn handlebars." That Saturday morning phone call planted the seed for a project Mr. Fritz would rapidly prototype, and ultimately launch as the Schwinn Sting-Ray. Every BMX bike on today`s track and trails can trace its roots directly to that first Sting-Ray, built by Al Fritz in the winter of 1963.

Levi Collins 2010 25-29 Men's UCI World's Levi Collins wins the 2010 World Championships press release
Levi Collins from Shepparton Victoria was crowned the 2010 25-29 Mens World Champion in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

Levi has been a long standing member of the team and is an all round great bloke.

After taking a year off from racing in 2007-2008 Levi returned to the scene to take on the world's best at the 2009 World Championships in Adelaide, Australia. Although he rode well, it didn't pan out quite the way he'd hoped. In 2010 the Australian BMX Championships were at his home track in Shepparton and Levi had moved up a class to the 25-29 Men's bracket. Levi put in a great effort at the championships riding away with a #1 in the 25-29 Cruiser class and #3 in the 25-29 Men's class.

Since then Levi has been training non stop and was able to get assistance from his local community to help him to compete at the 2010 World Championships and fulfill his dream of winning the World Championships.

On behalf of the team I would like to congratulate Levi, we are all very proud of you. Not only is Levi our first ever World Championship finalist, he's our first World Champion!

The guys at J&R Bicycles want to congratulate one of our long time friends (almost family) and long time J&R sponsored rider Domingos Lammoglia for his win at the 2010 UCI World Championships in South Africa.   Domingos Lammoglia (Brazilian born - Orlando Florida resident) has come a long way.  He is a good rider, a better trainer and a great friend to all of us at J&R Bicycles and to many of you at the races.  Domingos is now a 2 time World #1 rider with countless of other victories under his belt.....hands down one of the best people to know in BMX.
J&R Bicycles had another rider at the 2010 UCI World Championships as well.  Adam Brazil from the U.K., just recovering from recent injuries, made a great run at the Mens 17-24 class.  Although making a valiant effort to recover from a late start in the semi, Adam fell short of the main with a 5th place finish.  Walking away with World #9 is still not a bad deal for the rough season he had.
We would like to thank the following sponsors for their dedication to the sport and to the riders:

With new additions to the team for 2010, British Team Champions Intense/Route55 have gone from strength to strength as the race to be the UK Number 1 team steps up each year. With new outside sponsorship coming on board off the track, the riders are producing good form on it under the watchful eye of co team managers Kelvin Batey and Benn Thombes.

After their debut season in 2009 the team have really looked to build on their success and move things forward with things progressing extremely well for the riders who have loved the new Intense Podium ride.

Both Alex 7x and Ryan Brookes 8x sit well right now in the top 3 of their ranking with both taking consistent podiums and a couple of wins each.

Taylor Johnson (9x), Lewis Locker (10x) and Brooke Shayler (10-12 girls) have all been regular main makers this year with improved results on 2009 so the progression theyve made has been pleasing for everyone involved with the team.

Diagoro Fortune has shown that with abit more experience and consistency he can beat anyone he comes up against in the 12x class and along with his good friend Callum Wing who sits in 2nd place in his first ever National Series after some awesome results, watch for these 2 riders to be knocking on the door for their first National wins in the near future.

Jordan Perry has rode out of his skin all year in the 16x class and currently sits 2nd in the rankings while chasing his first national win which wont be too long in coming.

The 3 Junior riders have been up front in the class all year long with Grant Hill and Jack Hall taking multiple National wins with Hill sitting in 2nd and Hall 3rd. Dom Skidmore is looking for more consistency but has had a couple of excellent rides this year making the podium while he is lying in 6th place right now.

Kelvin Batey has had some ups and downs through the Elite series this year but sitting in 2nd place he'll be looking to hunt down what has been an elusive National win in 2010 by the end of the year.

The team are proud to be supported by Intense, VSI Products, THE, Sinz, The Source, Mountainfuel and Fly Racing.

Copenhagen Supercross Hosts Dutch National Team Clinic

Several riders and teams from all over Europe have used the opportunity to come to the permanent Supercross Track at Copenhagen's Bike City facility and get in some SX practice in Copenhagen prior to the UCI World Championships in South Africa.

The permanent SX ramp and track in Copenhagen will be hosting the UCI BMX World Championships 2011. The track is one of the few permanent SX tracks in the world and will later this year get a five meter ramp in addition to the existing 8 meter ramp. With that the track will be ready for the UCI World Championships 2011.

At the track in Copenhagen, riders from teams from Hungary, Germany, Norway and the Netherlands along with a number of individual riders from all over Europe have used the facilities at Bike City to train for BMX Supercross racing.

During their one week training camp in Copenhagen, the Dutch National team hosted a race clinic for the local riders that was quite successful and a thrill for the locals to work with the awesome Dutch Team.

National Coach, Bas De Bever and the National Team riders helped Danish riders with all manner of the sport, from physical training to race strategy and the fine points of race skills.

For more information about the track etc please see

BMX Mania's, Donna Snow Top Ten In Miss U.S. International

BMX Mania Factory Team member, Donna Snow recently did battle with some other girls in heated competition, but it wasn't on the BMX track, it was on the beauty pageant stage. Donna competed in the Miss U.S. International contest and although she didn't take home the Top Spot on the podium, she did make the main!

Donna, who competed at the national event made her way to the competition due to winning the Miss Florida International contest several months ago and was psyched to make it in to the finals, being a Top Ten winner.

The Miss U.S. International Pageant is a traditional beauty pageant for women of the United States who are ages between the ages of 18-25. Areas of competition include: Swimsuit, and Evening Gown to determine Semi-Finalists and Interview, Swimsuit and Evening Gown for Finalists.

Donna then hit up the NBL Constitution Classic  in Trumbull, CT and while competing in Elite Women's racing, fell and broke her wrist! Donna's been to surgery and had some high speed metal reinforcement put in to the injured area, so the beauty queen is STILL the die hard BMXer, joining the many rides who have had the same surgery from racing BMX.

"Congrats, Donna on your recent contest achievement and at the same time, "Get Better Soon" so you can get back on the track and make things beautiful there as well!

Follow Team GB at The UCI BMX World Championships 2010 behind the scenes and on the track as they take on the best riders in the world. BMX video mastery filmed and produced by Corinne Walder

NBL To 'relaunch' regular magazine publication?????

It sounds like that the NBL will be relaunching their magazine with the first issue coming out at the NBL Grands, the first week of September. The new mag will also be mailed to all members' shortly thereafter.

The new effort should be published 10 times a year at around 50 pages and in full color. The final size will be 10.5x11.5 which is larger than the old BMX Today. Major Nationals will probably be covered in the new magazine, and additional coverage of the smaller races will still be published on the NBL site. Many of the same columns will still be included, in addition to new content.

Rumor has it that Ssquared Factory Pro, Josh Meyers will be the cover boy on the first issue out of the gate and that video features will accompany many of the magazine's new features like cover spreads and other relevant items. We have seen the video, although we haven't seen the mag yet, as it's still going to press. Check out the vid, here's a sneak peak at what the new '1/2 Punch' is going to look like, check out Josh's video interview, here!

Each issue will be reproduced online in "flip book" format on a micro-site in conjunction with the NBL site.

The NBL has evidently joined forces with Floyd Publications of Lake Plant, Florida to help produce and print the magazine.

That's all we know for now, but keep an eye out for the possibilities at the NBL Grands.

Morphine Industries’ “Nugget” Recaps Badger State Nationals

We rolled into Wisconsin Rapids on Friday to find the track in great condition and ready to ride.  Lets see, nice sized starting hill, long first straight, some big jumps, and some technical rhythm sections - ooh yeah its gonna be a good weekend.


After saddling up my Haro, I hit the track for Friday practice getting a chance to dial in  my lines and shred the track.



Saturday morning practice rolls around and right about the time our group was ready to go up, it starts raining, accompanied by thunder and lightning. Practice was postponed for roughly an hour until the skies cleared.  Practice got back underway after the track got prepped.


Race could not come soon enough. In 19-27X, I went wire to wire on motos and semis on Saturday.  The moto gods gave me an outside gate in the main.  Up for the challenge to snapped the gate drop and lead from gate to finish for the win



Sunday morning brought beautiful sunny skies and perfect conditions for racing. I felt it was going to be another good day for me and well not so sure for everyone else.   I started of the day winning motos in open and class followed with a 2nd in the class semi.   The day rounded out with a win in 17 and over open main event and doubling with another podium top spot in 19-27X class.


It was an amazing track and  Central Wisconsin BMX, located in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin put on a great race weekend. Hopefully sometime in the future they will get the chance to hold a “bigger” race because it’s definitely a high caliper track.


Morphine Industries would like to thank its Factory Team Sponsors; Haro Bikes (, Fly Racing (, Alienation (, Sinz Racing (, Rennen (, Black Crown (, Tioga (

Drama on Day Two of the UCI BMX World Champs

Pietermaritzburg - The second day of racing in the UCI BMX World Championships saw the landscape of the challenger classes reshaped by several moments of high drama that saw medal contenders crash out of contention in a day of thrilling racing dominated by France, Australia and the United States in front of packed stands under overcast skies.

The 14 Girls main final was shaken in the first few seconds by a massive crash at the foot of the start ramp that took out the two girls who had dominated the class from the first moto, New Zealander Hannah Sarten and Australian Harriet Burbridge-Smith.

French rider Mathilde Doudoux seemed to move across the two at the base of the start ramp, and within seconds all three were felled in front of the first big double, paving the way for Aussie Harriet Birbridge-Smith to claim the gold medal.

In the next final, American wizz Felicia Stancil continued to sweep all before her, as the Illinois star romped to a lopsided win in the 15 Girls class.

It looked like being a US 1-2 in the next final. However Dani George, who led from the start, watched in shock as Dutch flyer Elis Ligtlee

The rider carrying the local hopes on the second day Queensburgh stalwart Jonathan Chislett was drawn into a thrilling dogfight to try and defend his 25-29 Men’s number one plate. Australian Levi Collins and Chislett provided a nail biting spectacle as these two seasoned pros slugged it out on the track, with the Australian toppling Chislett in the closing stages.

"I'm not bummed at all," conceded Chislett, who had beaten Collins in all of his motos. "I had to pass him on the third straight but I could not get it together over the rhythm section, and I realised going into the turn that he had it in the bag."

The win is doubly sweet for Levi, who has just moved into the 25-29 class. After winning his class at the Australian nationals in his hometown of Shepperton, he was unable to afford the trip to South Africa for the worlds.

"My local community came to my rescue and fundraised to get me here," said Collins. "It was so good to win this as a way of repaying my community back home. It’s been 25 years since Shepperton had a world champion, so I'm proud to be taking this back home."

Chilean rider Diego Aguirre looked to have the 14 Boys gold medal in his grasp until he succumbed to the long and demanding layout, and surrendered victory on the line to Dane Chris Christensen.

The French stranglehold started in the 15 Boys final where Amidou Mir turned the main final into a procession, showing a clean pair of wheels to two Argentinian chasers left in his dust.

The 16 Boys final saw the form rider through all the motos Kristaps Vinters crash out of contention on the second jump of the main final, leaving the door open for the livewire American star Nathan Padilla to claim the world number one.

The outcome of the 17 Boys final was also reshaped by a crash. This time British contender Billy Luckhurst fell to gasps from the big crowd assembled in front of the first berm. Ahead of him however was the awe-inspiring sight of six consecutive French riders streaming across the line, spearheaded by the 19 year old new world champ Stephane Michalon.

The last main final of the day, the men's masters saw three riders fall, none more dramatically that Dutchman Dorus Brink who was challenging for the lead in the home straight and crashed out unexpectedly, some distance away from any other riders, emulating the demise of Vinicius Moreira of Brazil and Swiss racer Herve Krebs.

All the attention shifts to the junior and senior superstars on Saturday morning, when the prized elite titles will be decided.

 Well the week before the national things kicked off with Rennen Intense factory team putting on a BMX camp  before the race, The Rennen crew are good people, and its always good to learn from some of their top riders such as A pro Allen Currier, 17-18 expert Austin loebe.,17 and over woman Courtney Applewhite,26-34 expert Pat Parker and the head guy running the show London Wilmot. With 30 riders each day at the camp, it was a success the camp started out in Bethel @ bethel supercross and then headed over to New Paltz and finished up back at Bethel. The kids had a great time and seemed to learn a whole lot. Always have to give a big Thanks for anyone willing to help the younger riders learn how to ride like the pros. Thanks for Rennen/Intense for putting on a great camp!  

The Constitution Classic started out with the Amateurs with Pros having their race later on in the evening for the Pro Spectacular. Some good racing took place in qualifying rounds and some of the top riders were doing what they do best and that is staying out front. Some Notable Amateurs were Rennen Intenses Austin loebe having a perfect all day in the main event until he clipped out in the Main Event and ended up 4th,Day 2 Austin got in and got out and ended up Winning making up for the day 1 clip out. Mike Caldwell battled wth Max Edgorf all weekend long, But Caldwell came out front both days with Edgorf going down right before the finish line battling with Caldwell.The 26-34 expert class was a good one to watch both days Lance Mcquire battled with Standards Johnny Pinnsonault and Rennen/Intenses Nick St Lawerence, It was like a main between these three guys in motos, but Saturday in the main it was Mcquire with the win and St.Lawerence took day 2. A stand out for sure was Rennen/Intenses Justin Knapper the kid was flying all weekend. 16 expert was a good class with the likes of  GT/Action Sports Dylan Perez, Mount Pleasants Mike Schneider and Rennen/Intenses Victor Behm The win went to Schneider both days with Perez and and Behm swapping the 2nd and 3rd both days. Look for Behm and Schneider to be battling it out with Damnian Cherepko when it comes grands time as Dylan Perez will be in the 17-18 class by then.Rennen/Intenses Shawn Diprete flew all weekend as he put his intense out front both days.Should we call this past weekend a Rennen/Intense show cause it seemed like every moto and main Rennen had a rider out front, Must be them powerbars. Courtney Applewhite dominated 17 and over woman both days as she Eliminated the rest of her class. 

3 o clock rolled around and it was time for the pros to get ready for the Autograph Session then for warm ups then the start of the Pro Spectacular at the Constitution Classic. There was some really Good racing in rounds as some big names showed up for Elite Series stop number 9. 

 Elite Men Haro/Rockstars Nic Long made the trip from Cali as he took the win both days, Kovachi Wheels Matt Kelty was flying as he put his Alienation wheels to work to get on the podium both days.Madera's Tyler Faoro just picked up his new sponsor OPTIMUM NUTRITION As the main event gate dropped for Elite it was Intense's Danny Caulag who was leading the whole lap until the last straight where Haro/Rockstars Nic Long took the win.Speaking of Danny C he pulled a 2nd place day 1 and a Clayborn's Barry Nobles Took a 6th day 1, and a 5th day two. Barrys a good guy and a class act so look for him for a national title run at Grands. SE's Javier Colombo was there and he was flying Colombo pulled a 4th day 1 barely missing the podium, and day 2 fount himself in the 6th spot, Morphine Industries Mike Kapes pulled a 7th day 1 in the stacked main event, but day two had a little badluck as he didnt make it to the big show. fast PHIL DELIZIA looked good all weekend in the main event. 

Super EX-  With a total of  18 riders.Coming into this race Dans comp Weston Pope was the man to beat sitting 2nd in the nation, Weston rode really consistent all weekend bringing home the big check both days another rider turning heads was local pro Rennen/Intenses Allen Currier he lead his intense to a podium day 1 and a 6th day two. Jason Larev for Morphine did his job day 1 by getting a 2nd and having some badluck in the Semi day 2. ECP's Matt Beatty had some badluck day 1 in his semi, but redeemed himself day two by getting on the podium with a 3rd. All Tow Wrecking crew Mike Henderson pulled a 4th both days after day 2 he was 5th in his semi and had to make a good move in turn 2 to get the 4th spot. Other names that made the trip were Road Kills Danny Smith,Addison Bikes Johnny Culbreth, Champion Nofear/Intense's Chase Campbell, Bulldog bikes AJ Bontorno, Standards Scotty McMahon, and Sun Bru's Justin Joy 

Elite Woman-We all know the name Dominique Daniels-Grand Canyon University, she has been just about unbeatable all year, well she made the trip and put her Speed out front for two wins. Former World champ Jamie Lilly-TLD/DNA energy has been helping out at Ohio Dreams Sports Camp and it seems to be helping her as she took the 2nd spot day 1 and 4th barely missing the podium day 2. Gt's/Action Sports Alaina Henderson was there all weekend trying to get to DD, Day 1 in the main she was going for the pass on first straight and got tangled up with Lilly and fell, she would be back for day 2 as she took the second spot.After getting Top ten in the USA's International Pagent BMXmania' Donna Snow came on up to Trumbull, was riding well all day, but went down in the main event and broke her wrist and arm we want to wish Donna a speedy recovery, Sunday since she couldnt ride she was interviewing people for a local group that was filming the racing. Get Better Donna! Ashley Lynch repesenting Cyclecraft looked fast both days by getting on the podium day 1 with a third, and day two with a 6th place finish Standard Army's Allie Dragoo was in the house, As barely missed the podium day 1 and day 2 seem to get a little squeezed and ended with a 8th, we wish Allie the best as she will attend Marion College for Cycling. GHP/Fly's Madison Pitts look super fast as well, after getting a really good first straight in the main event day 1 she had to avoid a wreck on the first straight, but still came out with the 5 spot, day 2 Maddy put her GHP to a podium finish by getting 3rd. Congats Maddy!  Making the trip from California Pat's bike shop's Michelle Patterson rode well all weekend as well. 

Vet Pro- In the Vet class it seemed to be a two man show the whole weekend. GT/actions sports Joey Albright was leading both days, until the last straight where ECP'S Percy Owens passed for the win at the line both days. This race was very good to watch, even in motos where they battled it out. Look for Joey and Percy to battle it out with the rest of the Vets come Grands time as they both try and go for a NBL National title. Other Vet pros were BMXmania' Brian Streiby,Stampedes Chris Keller and Stampedes Matthew Silvia 

We would like to thank all volunteers who made the Constitution Classic a success, with a really nice track and awesome volunteers the race went really smooth.
