|Morphine Industries adds Hawk Racing to the Family|
Morphine Industries is stoked to add Hawk Racing Custom Clothing to our family of Factory Team Sponsors. We had a great 2011 season running the hottest bottom brackets in the land, now we’ll also be the best looking with jerseys made by Hawk Racing Custom Clothing!
Hawk Racing is much more than bottom brackets and wheels. Hawk Racing also designs and produces custom clothing. They have offered custom clothing since 2008, focusing primarily on cycling and triathlon. However, the increased demand for their custom clothing has led them to expand their product line across many other sports, thus creating the new HR Sportswear line.
They produce high quality custom clothing for cycling, triathlon, BMX, motocross, ice hockey, and soccer. All of their products are available in both adult and child sizes. Hawk Racing has the lowest quantity requirements and the BEST pricing within the industry. Best of all, our turn-around time is hard to beat, as it is typically much shorter than in other companies.
Please check out Hawk Racing website at www.hawk-racing.com to find out more about their HR sportwear line and other top products (made by athletes for athletes). Hawk Racing will be producing the Factory Team jersey which will be sure to make a statement on the podium. Be sure to check it out at your next race....but unfortunately when on the track, the other riders will only be able to see the back.

Hunter Academy Of Sport Rocks At BMX Australia National!
The Bunbury rounds of the BMX Australia National Champbikx Series and Probikx Tour have been run and won over the weekend of the 28th and 29th of January. There was no cyclone alert this year, just 40C (105F) temperatures and gale force winds!!
The Hunter Academy of Sport had three riders competing in Bunbury and all survived the conditions to post the following results.
Round 3 (Saturday) Brock Griffiths – 3rd (14 Boys) Adam Humphris – 13th (16 Boys) Tenae Brooks – 5th (Junior Women)
Round 4 (Sunday) Brock Griffiths – 4th (14 Boys) Adam Humphris – 13th (16 Boys) Tenae Brooks – 6th (Junior Women)
Those riders in the team who did not travel to Bunbury attended a training camp on the NSW Central Coast. The weekend consisted of exercise drills, tracks skills, a beach session and pedal boat race and even a yoga session.
All members of the team were trial testing the new HAS race pants provided by CCN Sport. The youngest rider in the team, Caitlin Booker, described the new race pants as “really comfortable to ride in” and when asked what she thought of the design and colour of the pants she said they were “really nice”.
Next on the agenda for the team is the ACT State Championships in early March.
The Hunter Academy of Sport BMX team sponsors and partners include: Eagleboys Pizza (eagleboys.com.au), BMXNSW (bmxnsw.com.au), Advanced Physiotherapy (newcastle-physiotherapy.com.au), Mind Body Balance, Multisport Solutions (multisportsolutions.com.au) and NIB Health Insurance (nib.com.au).

Introducing STAY STRONG/BENSINK World Team 2012
Darryn Goodwin/Australia Elite ... Shanaze Reade/UK Elite ... Jordy Van Der Heijden/Holland Elite ... Alfredo Campo/Equador Elite
Adrien Demaria/France Elite ... Rogerio Reis/Brazil Elite ... Kyle Evans/UK Elite ... Leopold Tramier/France Junior Men ... Nicolas Santolini/Argentina Junior
|Kyle Evans, Stayin' Strong In Manchester|
The SS crew kicked off the new year with a new team running custom GT Speed Series Stay Strong frames. Teaming up with Bensink Start Gates supported by Rockstar Energy, Clark and Kent Contractors and www.310proshop.com .
The UK held it’s first SX race at the newly opened Indoor track in Manchester the weekend before last. An International field lined up in this season opener with some top foreign guys over for the show. Our very own Kyle Evans was on top form in his first Elite race since moving up from Jr. He got amongst the action, riding hard winning moto’s and his semi before finishing 5th in Saturday night’s final. Kyle is a great addition and we’re happy to welcome him to the team for 2012. You'll be seeing more of him in edit’s we have planned in the coming month’s.
The Euro based crew got off to a good start in Belgium this last weekend with decent results on day 1. Shanaze Reade took home a solid win, back after a recent injury. We are delighted to have Shanaze on board for this year and running our frame and parts right the way through her Olympic campaign .. Leopold Tramier was throwing in some signature style in Jr Men, winning laps and looking comfortable all the way to the main. He got caught up in the first turn in the final and finished 6th on the day but had looked good for a podium and made light work of the track with his trail style.
Jordy Van Der Heijde and Adrien Demaria were repping in Elite men. Adrien crashed out in a pile up in turn one in the 1/8th’s but Jordy was strong and consistent winning some laps before finishing 5th in the main in his first race in SS colours. Jordy has now headed to St. Maxime, France where he’ll be based for the next 2 months as he prepares for the French Cups and Italy leg of the Euro tour.
Meanwhile “Down Under” our Aussie Darryn Goodwin has been racing back to back from Nerrang to the Victorian titles, the Track attack series before hitting up the Pro race this coming weekend over in his home city of Perth. He still had time to hit up some backyard jam action and high air contests along the way! We’re looking forward to Darryn joining us in Europe for a few months from March to hit all the major races on the way to the World’s in Birmingham.

J&R Bicycles-Speedco Silver Dollar Nationals Team Report:
USA BMX and the J&R Bicycles-Speedco team are off to a great start this season. With over 300 motos on day one at the Silver Dollar Nationals and 40+ teams competing in the Factory, Bike Shop, and Trophy categories for the weekend, it was a good chance to pick up some early team and NAG points. With the team sporting its new Stile Industries jerseys and Troy Lee Design’s GP Speedshop pants, the team was ready to defend its back-to-back team titles for the 2012 season.
Bryce "B.B. King" Batten and Lauren Whisler, picked up their NAG #1 plates and led the team with double-doubles for the weekend.
In 8 & under cruiser, NAG #4 Kyle Mitchell, edged out his NAG #1 brother Katin Mitchell both days in some close racing. Newcomer Kamren “Pancho” Larsen and Levi Pope had some solid finishes in 12x, 12 cruiser, and 11-12 open. Meanwhile, NAG #1 Hunter Pelham, had some good laps but wasn't quite up to par after being in the hospital the week before with a throat infection. Austin Fowble, Tristan Mitchell, and Leinani Peralta also had some podium finishes to lead the team to score 220 points on Saturday and 217 points on Sunday.
We have a few riders heading to J&R Bicycles’ back yard to race the Gator Nationals at the revamped Oldsmar, Florida tack in a few weeks, including local Geoffrey Banser who was unable to make the trip the Reno.
With over half the team calling Lake Perris BMX home, including myself for the past dozen years, hopefully USA BMX and the Fairgrounds can come to an agreement with a new track owner. It would be a shame to lose another Inland Empire BMX track. This area has been home to some of the top BMXers and Motocross racers from around the world.
Our next team race will be at Chula Vista. Coming off the disabled list will be W1 Ryan Pettigrew after his long stint of rehabbing his broken foot. Unfortunately, joining the disabled last week is Zack Vankammen, breaking his collar bone. Hopefully he will be back for Chula Vista. Michael Weatherford and Rachel Mydock decided to sit Reno and should be back in action for Chula Vista.
The team would like to thank all of its returning sponsors, including J&R Bicycles (www.jrbicycles.com), Speedco Bicycles (www.speed-bicycles.com), Troy Lee Designs (www.troyleedesigns.com), Sinz (sinz-bmx.com), THE (the-industries.com), Alienation (www.alienationbmx.com), and ODI (odigrips.com)

USA Cycling partners with Chase BMX to support junior development efforts
Colorado Springs, Colo. (Jan. 19, 2012) – USA Cycling is pleased to introduce Chase BMX, a division of the Bicycle Racing Group (BRG), as an official sponsor of its BMX Junior Development Program (JDP).
The two-year sponsorship, which began this month and ends in December of 2013, will see Chase supply BMX frames, as well as other BRG products, to USA Cycling’s JDP camps.
The JDP camps, which are held at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., provide opportunities for top 15- and 16-year-old racers to receive high performance training on the Supercross World Cup BMX track.
"Chase BMX is proud to work with USA Cycling and the future of the sport of BMX, the Junior Development Program,” said BRG Strategic Partner Pete Dylewski. “We at Chase BMX will demonstrate the brand’s commitment to not only support athlete growth, but also to work with the sport’s youth to help develop and bring new products into the race market, with direct development from riders of all ages.”
“We are delighted to have Chase BMX partner with our Junior Development Program for the next two years,” said Mike King, USA Cycling’s BMX Program Director. “We believe Chase BMX is the ideal sponsor for the Junior Development Program because they are a hands-on company who supports our youth at all levels. They will receive unique feedback from our riders during camps and it also provides Chase BMX with an opportunity to observe future talent up close on an Olympic style BMX track. The next Connor Fields could be found in that Junior Development Program.”
USA Cycling holds four JDP camps each year. The camp dates for 2012 are scheduled for April 2-7, June 18-23, Aug. 13-18, and Oct. 15-20.
Riders qualify to attend the camps with results during one of four qualification periods in USA Cycling’s BMX Junior Development Series. To learn more about the series, the camps, or how to qualify, please visit USA Cycling’s BMX Junior Development Program webpage.
|Chase BMX RSP 1.0 frames|
Chase BMX RSP 1.0 frames were created to bring the BMX racing world a new standard for the Elite level of BMX racing frames. No gimmicks, just straightforward technological advancements to offer you the lightest and stiffest frames. These advantages allow you to get all the human generated power to the ground, and give you the biggest advantage offered from any current BMX frame - The winning advantage.
The frame was developed and designed by BMX World Champion Christophe Leveque. Christophe was very meticulous about what frames he raced on during his career. He had the privilege to work with some of the world’s top companies and helped develop and refine the BMX frames, as he won multiple World & national championships. When Christophe decided to create his own line of frames, he used his knowledge and his eye for design to make the ultimate BMX frame.
Chase frames leverages the best of modern technology with 7005 T4/T6 Heat treated Alloy, Hydro formed, tapered, oval and swedged tubing, double butted and triple butted tubes, CNC 3D 7mm dropouts, CNC intergraded head tubes, and lastly beautiful and detailed graphics.
Chase frames feature a double butted top tube, triple butted down tube, the chain stays and seat stays both utilize a special process known as muscle forming to give them both a unique look and give added strength and stiffness to round out and create one of the lightest and stiffest BMX frames available. Chase is able to add these incredible features while remaining true to the traditional look of BMX racing while adding Chase BMX’s cutting edge racing performance.
The Hydro formed or tear drop shaped tubing that is on the RSP Frames are custom designed, radically shaped, and drawn aluminum alloy for weight savings and stiffness that help give optimal strength and rigidity to the Chase BMX frame. Hydro formed tubes have two main advantages. First, the narrow axis is a flatter surface, which can mean a lot more surface area to carry the load, like an I-beam with a wide flange, so it will be stiffer and stronger across the minor axis. Secondly, the deeper axis will be stiffer since the stiffness varies to the cube of the diameter, stronger to the square. When using an oval shaped tube on a typical BMX frame it helps reduce flex but only in one direction, but on the Chase BMX frame the tubes are oval in both directions in the main flex areas and these tubes help reduce flex in both main directions.
Chase BMX frames are offered in eleven different sizes - 10 different 20” frames- Mini, Junior, Expert, Expert XL, Pro, Pro +, Pro XL, Pro XL+, Pro XXL, and Pro XXL+: and 2 options in 24” frames – Pro or Pro XL Cruiser.
The entire offering of Chase BMX frames is available in two colors - Brilliant Black or Winning White. Chase BMX Frames utilizes a distinctive and detailed graphics design that enhances the Chase BMX proprietary tubing which further improve the details and bring you not only the best riding, but also the looking frame in BMX.
The Chase frame was designed to be the highest standard for BMX racing. We know not everyone needs this much performance in a BMX frame and the price may not be for everyone, but neither is winning.
Anyone who wants to win should join the Chase!

The events primary function is to raise money for the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation. In just five years the event has raised approximately $24,700 which has provided the hospital with new equipment. Funds have been raised through gate takings, raffles, auctions and donations.

2012 Factory Intense Pro roster
Cerritos, California –VSI Products Inc., is pleased to announce their 2012 Factory Intense Pro roster
Flying under the Intense Factory flag will be:
Brian Kirkham – AA Pro/ Elite Men – Brian an Australian native is incredibly fast and smooth and had an amazing year in 2011.
Brian is eager to come to the states and race the USABMX National Series as well as UCI and Olympic events. Its a sure bet that he will be winning more often than not.
A few words from Brian “I’m really happy to have VSI's support for a busy upcoming season and I can’t wait to represent Intense all around the world. I have been using VSI products for the past 3 years and I can honestly say its the best bike and equipment I have ever ridden. I’m really looking forward to the year ahead”.
VSI's COO Gregorio de Haro noted “We are so pleased to have Brian join forces with Intense BMX for the 2012 season. He has an amazing race record to date and has great ambition that will no doubt keep him winning”.
Arielle Martin will continue her Elite Women’s domination racing for Intense during the new 2012 season. Her primary goal is to earn the USA Olympic spot for the Elite Women and we are pleased to have Arielle sign on for another year and continue to support us as she strives to make the Olympic team.
Arielle stated “2011 was an awesome year with team Intense, landing my first SX WC victory on home turf followed by a Silver at the PanAmerican Games was an amazing experience and I couldn't have done it without the great support from the guys at VSI. I am thrilled to be staying with the company for 2012 as I make my run for the Olympics in August and chase down some domestic wins here in the states. A little forced time off to let a nagging injury in my hand heal after PanAms has me feeling fresh, re-charged, and ready for the season to start. My Intense rides have been the sexiest and fastest bikes I have ever owned and I'm looking forward to another great year on them”.
VSI's COO Gregorio de Haro added “We are incredibly fortunate to have an athlete like Arielle representing Intense BMX. In addition to the interest she generates on and off the track, she is a wonderful person to work with and a valuable partner in our product development process.”

Dan's Comp Factory Team 2011 Report
The Dan’s Comp trailer and team rolled into Tulsa with high hopes to end this amazing year with a few more titles and to let the BMX world know that Dan’s Comp has everything for every BMXer.
This was the first time Dan’s has been at a national in many years, and with a new trailer and all kinds of deals, the boys from Dan’s didn’t rest all weekend. Look for the guys to be at a national near you in 2012 and check out the best deals on line at danscomp.com.
The Friday ROC started off with a big win for Matt Pohlkamp as he and Javier put on a great show as always. Alden Volle continued his consistent winning ways with podiums in Jr Devo and the ultra tough 15x class.
The Pro Spectacular on Saturday night featured the Matt & Javier show again in Vet Pro with Matt winning one main and Javier the other 2 for the overall win on Saturday. Matt’s second place finish was enough to capture the 2011 Vet Pro Title. Congrats to Matt! Every race in this class is always so much fun to watch and the competition is fierce with so many talented guys.
Besides the excitement of determining all of the Pro titles, the bragging rights for the Amateurs in the NAG 5 challenge is one of the most anticipated races of the weekend. Justin Posey had his sights set on winning this race since early in the year. Congratulations Justin, you worked hard for that one.
Not to be outdone by his older teammates, Alden Volle came up the big winner in the pit bike race and had all of the riders wondering how he was still pedaling as that was one long track!
Sunday’s races, as always, lived up to the hype with the most amazing and competitive racing at the Greatest Race on Earth. When the day was over Dan’s had 2 more titles to add to their amazing year as Scott Moreland won the 41 and over expert main and the title and Justin Posey had to settle for a 2 behind his good friend & ultra tough competitor Jared Garcia, but had the points to win the 17-18X title.
Alden was on fire all weekend but had tough luck in his semi for class but rode solidly in the 15-16 open. Alden has been spending a lot of time racing motorcycles with great success and still manages to be a tough competitor in the talented 15x class.
Weston Pope was still on the injured list from his spleen injury at the Disney race, but he helped out the team as coach, water boy and overall supporter of Dan’s Competition and his racing buddies. Weston was having a great year with solid performances in London & Chula SX races until he was injured. Look for big things to come from him.
The boys in green would like to send out a HUGE thanks to Dan’s Competition for all of the support and great times in 2011. It was great to share our big weekend with all of the guys. Be sure and check them out for all of your BMX needs @ danscomp.com.
We would also like to thank our sponsors for all of the help and confidence in us. Fly racing, Diamondback, Supercross, GHP, Ssquared, Answer BMX, Alienation, Tangent, Speedline, and Maxxis .

Morphine Industries End of Year Wrap
Photos courtesy of Jerry Landrum / BMXmania.com and Mike Carruth / BMXnews.com
Ok, First things first. Everybody raise their hand that did not get sicker than a dog after the Grands. Raise them high. Not a hand to be seen.
The anticipation of the Grands and what affect the consolidation of the sanction might have definitely throw a new twist on the event. It proved to be a positive twist by making this race the biggest on record with 603 motos.
The Morphine Crew saddled up from all corners – Ft Lauderdale, Atlanta, Rockford, Dayton, Pittsburgh and Charlotte and headed to the land of BMX greatness. After many hours of beef jerky, energy drinks, coffee, pork rinds and many unexpected mouthfuls of dark brown rubber, we all arrived in Tulsa. Thank God…
When the dust cleared , bikes packed and bellies where full of pressed turkey loaf and dehydrated mash potatoes, the ABA results for Morphine went like this!
Olijuwon Davis: National #4 – A PRO ... Charlie Hunt: N.A.G. #1 - 26-30 Cruiser & N.A.G. #4 - 28-35X ... Doran Bradshaw: N.A.G. #2 - 35-40 Cruiser & N.A.G. #4 - 36-40X ... Brandon McCoy: N.A.G. #3 - 19-27X ... Jared Johnson: N.A.G. #7 - 16X
It was a great year of racing for Morphine Industries. We had many road trips which have become legendary. It’s all about killing it on the track and have a epic good time doing it, haha.
We have stellar family of sponsors that have keep our riders rolling in style and we have had a great time promoting on and off the track. Our helmets are off to you and we thank you for your generous support.

|Supercross BMX Builds|
|Factory SX Playground!|
Supercross BMX owner, Bill Ryan is kickin' 2012 in to gear in a BIG way with the building of a Supercross / Olympic format track at their California World Headquarters, literally as we speak!
According to Bill, "There are really no "SUPERCROSS" style tracks for our riders to get on to on a regular basis for training" so he decided to build one for them!
Of course, in California, there is the BMX SX track at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, but it does have limited availability to just drop by and practice on.
Also, if someone wants to work on a section or feature at their own pace, the options for SX style race training is limited, so the SX team decided that maybe it'd be cool to practice whatever they needed for an upcoming event, it'd be great to be able to design their own obstacles, jumps, turns as needed.
Bill continues......"So when we were looking for our new building, Land was an issue as we wanted to make sure we could build a track for our riders to practice on all they wanted, and if we wanted to change something, we can do it."
With riders like Bubba Harris, Dani George, Jeremy Rommel and Nate Padilla all on the roster and all doing the Supercross events, we knew this was something we had to do for the benefit of our riders.
Not to mention it is a great test facility.
Well after a year of dirt falling through and tractor issues, the time has finally come. So far we have had over 120 loads of Clay dropped off and have more coming.
So with dirt in hand, we sat down to decide what we wanted the Supercross Track to be. The end result is a 6 straight, 4 turn monster!
Now you are probably going, 6 straights? 4 Turns? What the heck, well the second straight and the 3rd straight are dual straights, and it is not Men's/Women's straights, it is the Gnarly Straight and the Super Gnarly straight and there are 2 second turns, 1 for the Gnarly straight that the Super narly straight jumps over into it's second turn. So the course itself is a typical 4 straight 3 turn track, but with options. At at an estimated 1400 ft it is going to be the perfect size for training.
So with the plan in mind, Austin Hiatt took everyone's comments and notes and put it to paper, then he used a cad program to lay it all out. Once that was done we hired ourselves up a tractor operator, Danny Purdue, who has helped us with our Apple Valley BMX track and has also built Motocross tracks for the Alessi's, so Danny knows his way around a dirt pile or two.
So with that, Jeremy and I set out to the lot and started marking off the ground with contractors paint, 42ft double here, 38 ft triple step here, 28ft doubles here, 28ft Bonzai jump, a 35ft berm jump, yeah it is going to have a few fun obstacles.
And of course as the building was going, we modified a few things, like the addition of the berm jump, that wasn't in the original plans, but it just seems to fit the flow of the track, and the Bonzai that drops you 4ft underground out of the first turn, yeah that wasn't in the original plans either, but just seemed to fit the flow of it all.
So far we have the first 3 straights in, and the last three are going in on New Years Day, then the grooming begins and we will be riding soon.
All of the above mentioned riders, plus Kenth Fallen and Austin Hiatt had input on the track design.
Stay tuned for more from the Supercross BMX Company Compound as we put together one awesome Supercross Practice Track!
