Collins, Super Ex/Elite Men
Logan, I hope you had a awesome Christmas, Thanks
again for taking time to this interview for BMXmania.com. You are
flying here at the Christmas Classic, What do you like about the
Logan - The track is pretty decent, i like
any kind of track with pro sets on it.
At the Disney race, you were sporting new colors,
tell us a little about you 2010 sponsors?
Supercross/No Fear, I'm really looking forward to sporting their stuff in
2010 season and many seasons to come.
You finished 3rd in Super ex this past year, thats
two years in a row as a top 3 pro! Anyone you want to thank?
First off I want to thank God for the ability and passion to race and
ride bicycles. I would also like to thank all my sponsors, anyone
who supported me the past few years, and most of all my parents for
all their support.
What are you goals for 2010? What will you focus
more on? NBL,ABA,UCI
Get as fast as i possibly can, and be competitive in the Elite Men class
and hopefully make the transition to race Elite men full time next
year. I want to hit all of the Elite UCI races as well the NBL Elite
Super ex has a lot of fast guys, who is your main
The seven other racers on the gate as well as myself.
Whats the difference between racing super ex, then
racing Elite Men at UCI events?
I would say the main difference is the consistency of riders. The skill
level of riding in the Elite Men class is higher than the Super-Ex
class, which makes Elite Men a lot more difficult. A strict training
lifestyle is a must to be a strong competitor in the Elite class.
If you could change one thing about this Christmas
track, what would it be?
The only thing I see wrong with the track are the second and third turns.
The turns are so sharp and seem to have the wrong angle which makes
it almost impossible to keep the speed that riders create down the
straightaways. With more wide-open turns, the track could be much
faster and more fun.
A lot of people see you race a bicycle, what other
riding do you like to do?
There is a lot more to BMX than just racing. And there is a lot more to
bicycles than just BMX. I race and train a lot, but the same amount
of my time is spent on my park/trail bike. I love riding my bike
more than I do racing it. And I love racing, so that is a lot. Haha.
Also, I enjoy riding my slalom/4x bike whenever I get the chance.
Logan, Thanks again for the interview is there
anyone you would like to thank?
First and foremost, I want to thank my parents (Shannon and Robert), my
sister (Alix) and my bros bros (Chase) for their support over the
last 15 years. I also want to thank my current and previous sponsors
for all of the product and financial support over the
years.....Supercross, No Fear, Alienation, Sinz, THE, Intense,
Profile, Outback, Clayborn, and Haro.
Any advice for kids just starting out this 2010
Having fun is the most important aspect of racing BMX. Keep it fun and
competitive, but more fun than competitive.
Allie, first off I hope you had a wonderful
Christmas, and thanks for taking time to do this interview. Who are
your sponsors? Any new sponsors for 2010?
Allie - My sponsors are Standard Byke Co.
FLY racing, Pokerstars.net, Answer, and Alienation.
How do you like the Christmas Classic track?
The Christmas Classic track is pretty nice. I rode it when there was open
practice when it was just built, it was a little damp but the track
was nice. It should be good for all levels of racing and should be
ready and smooth for the days of racing.
You had a successful year this past year, name
your accomplishments as it was your FIRST year as Pro?
Being my first year Pro I had one national win but the biggest
accomplishment was making the NBL Grands main event.
What are some of your goals for 2010? What is your
My goals are to just keep getting better, train harder, and have better
finishes. I plan on doing a lot of the races for NBL and ABA/UCI.
If you could change one thing about the Christmas
Classic what would you do?
I don't think I'd change anything, the track is the same for everyone.
Watch the turns during the race, it will be good.
Seems like you have a long winter up there in
Michigan? What are some of the things you do in the cold for
I hate Michigan in the Winter time because of the snow... I think I could
stay at Lindsey Wilson College in KY during the winter time so I
don't have to deal with the snow! I go to the gym pretty much
everyday, umm its hard to do sprints so I try to find a dry parking
garage or any dry parking lot and bundle up. I go to Steel Wheels
indoor track for practice when I can.
Any advice for the kids in BMX or just starting in
My best advice is to not get down on yourself, have some fun, and if you
have one of those parents who yell ballistically at you ask them if
they'd like to try!
Who would you like to thank?
My momma Rick and Jess at Standard Ryan at Answer Zack and Jerry at
Alienation Fly Rich at Pokerstars.net my team, anyone who supports
me and watches me race, ALL my friends (at the track/home/and
school), and my family for supporting me throughout the years and
espcially while I'm gone during the Holidays. and Chase for the
