NBL Encourages Local Tracks to Donate Through the Program Also 

HILLIARD, OH (Jan. 22, 2010) — In response to the earthquake and subsequent devastation in Haiti, the NBL has gathered over a thousand items of clothing in conjunction with TB Trophies & Awards to donate to the relief effort. While the initial donations of money and emergency supplies are needed, we recognize that clothing will become an issue during their recovery.

The NBL is also asking local tracks to donate any leftover items from previous races or programs. We know our nation is a very giving nation and will open up their closets, but we are only requesting new clothing items for these donations.

If a local track is interested in donating, please contact the NBL at and describe the items you have collected. We will direct you where to send the items and reimburse the track for shipping costs.

NBL CEO Gary Aragon says, “The people of Haiti have just experienced a tragedy we are unable to fathom. I had the privilege of working with the Haitian community years ago, and I am greatly affected by the tragedy that has befallen them at this time. There are plenty of organizations accepting monetary donations, so we wanted to provide direct donations of clothing to help the Haitians clothe themselves and their children during their immense rebuilding process. We encourage all our local tracks to join in the effort.”

Morphine Industries Ends ‘09 at NBL President Cup/Christmas Classic


Photos courtesy of Jerry Landrum /


The Morphine Industries’ crew hit Louisville to end year playin in the dirt and still believing in the fat man in red.


The weekend started with the President’s Cup on Saturday and our 10X – Richie Dey giving an aerial display by hittin’ the Pro set in practice.  He backed up the skills with a 1st place finish in both class and cruiser to double up in Cups and helping Florida once again take home the top spot.


The Christmas Classic hit the track the following two days with the rest of the Morphine rider’s getting in on the fun.



Master - Tim Dinger adding a little style to the track as usual. On Day 1, He took a lane 7 start in the main with getting pimped in turn one, and turned it into a place on the Podum – 3rd place.  Day 2, started the same with top finishes in motos and returning to the gate in the main.   Making a move for the top spot in turn two, he went low for the pass and got tangled up with a rider.  Can’t win them all, that’s race.  Tim settled for a 7th.




Super Xers - Gavin Lubbe / Jason Larev had a great weekend of racing rollin through motos, but a series of mishaps and bad lanes keep them both out of the main.


17/18x – Talbott Cross coming back from a broken wrist, banged bars in one of the toughest classes in BMX to come up short of the main both days.



15X – Damian Cherepko put on a clinic and routed the field with a perfect on both days taking the top podium spot with track to spare.  The kid is for real.


10X – Richie Dey coming off a President Cup double-header, raced at the front of the class both days.  Day 1, due to a few mishaps, he finished in the fourth spot.  Returning for Day 2, Richie stepped it up and took the deuce in the main to finish the weekend.


It looks like next stop for the Morphine Circus will be Lexington, VA and the Florida State Series race in Jacksonville, FL in Mid January.  We won’t disappoint.


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

Explore BMX: 2009 AA Pro #1 Randy Stumpfhauser

Check out Tracy Stephens' "Bend BMX Examiner", she's got an active news feature that's full on with tons of cool BMX stuff, like this one from Tracy about Randy Stumpfhauser, the 2010 ABA National #1 AA Pro!

By Tracy Stephens:

One of the biggest battles of the weekend during the recent ABA Grand Nationals in Tulsa was the AA Pro races.    Who would win the Grands?  Who would come out on top of the point standings?  

The final battle of pros was intense as Free Agent's Kyle Bennett, and GHP's Randy Stumpfhauser closed in on the finish line.   While KB took home the win for the weekend, the overall points went to fan favorite, Randy (Stumpy) Stumpfhauser, who with that finish, became the 2009 AA Pro of the year.      

Always an avid bike rider, his dad used to take him to a track near his house, and he admits he was hooked.    He started racing when he was 9,  and turned to pro at the ripe old age of 19.   Stumpy has held many national titles going back to 1993 and his amateur days.    Randy's hails from Sanger, California, and his regular rides are at  Airtime BMX in Reedley, California, and FBX in Fresno, CA.

New Position Will Focus On Development of New Programs and Technologies to Further the Sport

HILLIARD, OH (Jan. 19, 2010) — The National Bicycle League announced today that Erma Miller has been named Director of Planning and Innovations. The newly created position will develop and implement new programs and concepts aimed at improving the overall member experience and the sport itself. This R&D position will also fulfill a critical role of the strategic plan to identify and develop new trends in the sport that will be beneficial to the NBL. 

CEO Gary Aragon commented: “Erma’s vast experience and expertise provide a valuable well of knowledge that the NBL can draw from to advance our goals and BMX. With a person dedicated to this critical effort, I am certain we will be able to not only be on the cutting edge of the sport, but to take a role in leading BMX into the future.” 

Said Erma Miller: “I am excited about all the changes the NBL is making, and the changes yet to come through this new position are definitely going in the right direction to further grow the sport of BMX. Gary Aragon, the NBL's new CEO, most certainly has the BMX passion.” 

When asked about the vacancy this promotion creates in the position of the National Field Clerk, Gary Aragon said: “One of the first things the Director of Planning and Innovation will be tasked with is the restructuring of the Clerk functions at our Nationals. Our goal is to develop and train a pool of clerks from within each region who will be hired for each event as staff to carry out the clerk responsibilities. These are people who are already volunteering, and this will give us an opportunity to compensate them for their efforts while extending our staff presence at our national events— in essence, we will have multiple National Field Clerks.”

Rennen/Intense Frenzied Team Comp At NBL Christmas Classic

“Return of old faces, in new places, Rennen/Intense dominates the NBL Christmas Classic”

Louisville, KY December 26th to the 29th with a handful of our top riders still feeling the hangover of the ABA Grands and deciding to sit this one out, Rennen/Intense still managed to patch together a powerful team for the NBL’s annual Christmas event. National event Day 1 proved that last years pair of 94’s were no fluke in Lexington, as we again brought down the house with a 94 for our FIFTH straight NBL team victory to start the 2010 season. Day 2 turned into slug fest, and three of our major team sheet riders were involved in main event “adventures”. Thus our win streak came to an abrupt end. Here’s how your favorite team rider did at this event:

Austin Loebe: Still not quite 100% from his NBL Grands mishap, Austin continues to show the skill and power that will make him a top pro someday. Day 1 saw him capture the 16x main event victory, while Day 2 saw him try for the “all or nothing” move in the last turn, coming away with nothing.

Nick St. Lawrence: It’s been far too long since Nick has been a player on our team sheets and the 09 Classic marked his return to active team racing. Don’t look for him at every team event, but his presence will be felt all season long when “life” is not in the way of BMX. Nick was the veteran in the 19-25 expert class in Louisville, but was able to pick up the win on Day 1. Leading again on Day 2 he was “hung out to dry” in turn one on the tight indoor track.

Erik Meyer: Returned from a year layoff on the national scene and immediately made his presence known, doubling both 10x and 10 cruiser for the event. Look for Erik to be full time this year and a major contender for both sanction’s titles.

Rob McAllister: Found his way to the podium in both days national events in 40-44 cruiser.

Chris Meaker: Sneaker managed to hold off his team manager on the track all weekend long, picking up a pair of thirds in 36-40x.

Susie Levan: Put her #1 plate on display all weekend in her hometown of Louisville, two perfects in 35-39 ladies cruiser.

Rochelle Wooding: Dominated the 13 girls class, snowboarding must be a great form of training!

Victor Behm: Victor is a big boy, hard to miss out on the track. He reminds many of our long time team riders of a young Walter Dunn (former NBL national champ), just learning how to use his newfound size and power. After doubling at the Presidents Cup for his home state of New Jersey, he was a factor in all four 15x and cruiser mains.

Shayne Robinson: Our ageless superwoman once again gave notice to the 45 and over woman’s cruiser class that the title goes through Peachtree City, GA! She never lost a lap in all three events.

Max Egdorf: 17-18 expert is full of heavy hitters right now, and Max put his Intense Podium on the podium with a 2nd on Day 1. Max has had some much-needed business to take of before he moves on to the 19-25 expert class this month, and on Day 2 that was business was handled.

Next up for the team is an NBL event in Lexington, VA, followed by the ABA Oldsmar National with a week full of local track clinics leading up to the Florida event. Look for a Bizzarro Racing clinic featuring many of the Rennen/Intense factory team riders at a Southeastern track near you in February. We’ll be visiting Hornet’s Nest on Monday 2/15, Peachtree City on Tuesday 2/16 and Albany, GA on Wednesday 2/17. Look for more dates to be added soon.

Formula Bicycle Company ABA Silver Dollar National Race Report

Formula had a pretty good showing at the ABA Grands in Tulsa for 2009 and started off 2010 by attending the Silver Dollar Nationals in Reno, NV. The ABA changed the way the arena was set up this year, which had us change the way we normally set up our pit area. This actually worked out well because we set up along the rail directly above the start gate which gave us a great view of each gate start and the entire track.

Although Deak Brown and Lee Lewis will be travelling with Answer/Supercamp in 2010, and wearing their colors the rest of the year, Deak and Lee chose to ride for Formula/Fly in the first race of the year at Reno bringing home a 1st and 2nd on Sunday. We wish Deak and Lee the best of luck.

Lee Lewis made his first appearance as an A-Pro and battled hard all weekend being in the top 3 in all his motos, quarters and semis. Saturday in the main Lee was on his way to making the podium when he made a slight mistake in the main, on the first straight, which cost him his podium shot but he came back for a 6th.

Sunday, the same, top 3 in all his motos, quarters and semi and then in a heated race in the main a crash in the first turn left Deak in first, Jacob Peebles in second and Lee in third. The race continued that way until the last turn when Peebles went high, Lee cut under him with a slight bump and Lee ended up taking over second and finishing the same way with Deak as the winner.

Shelby Stacy was running well over the weekend competing in both USAC Jr. Girls Division and 15 Girls.

Saturday Shelby ended up with a 2nd in USAC Jr. Division Girls and a 3rd in 15 girls.

Sunday Shelby scored a 5th in USAC Jr. Division Girls and a 2nd in 15 girls.


Kris Mulhause (19-27X) made the main on Saturday, while fighting for the hole shot a bad crash took him down and put him in the hospital. There is a chance he may lose his spleen.


Emily Harris (9 Girls) had another great race weekend representing Formula with a 2nd on Saturday and a 2nd on Sunday.

Cody Tippitt (6X) had a tough weekend with a crash on Saturday ending up in 7th but brought home a podium 3rd on Sunday.


Tyler Ayon (13 Novice) raced his first 13 race in Reno and managed to pull off a 3rd on Saturday after crashing in practice hurting his wrist and a few fingers, and getting a flat tire in the first straight of the main and peddling the flat tire to the finish line for the 3rd. Sunday he turned in another 3rd.


ABA BMX Awards Amazing

Helmets and Jackets to

National Age Group Champions

Last weekend at ABA’s season opener in Reno, NV the ABA awarded amazing prizes for the top ten ranked riders from each 2009 National Age Group (NAG) category. 

ABA presented 60 custom THE  #1 helmets to all 2009 NAG Champions and 600 custom Hot Shoppe designed jackets to the NAG top ten riders. 

This is the second year ABA and THE have partnered to recognize the NAG Champions with custom helmets and the first time in ABA history, ABA awarded all the Top 10 (NAG) riders with a custom Hot Shoppe designed jacket!

The NAG jacket awards were a direct request of the membership after a recent program change.

The riders have asked for this and the ABA BMX team listened!

ABA Chief Operating Officer, John David, had this to say about the new awards, “This is such a great example of ABA understanding the needs and wants of our customers.  We understand that by providing world class awards, the riders will truly have something to strive for.  Simply put true measure of success was seeing the smiles of the hundreds of riders who received the awards.  It was awesome!”

ABA BMX would like to thank all the 2009 National Series sponsors: Dan’s Comp ( ) Redline Bicycles-( ) FLY Racing-( ) Intense BMX-( ) T.H.E. ( ) Tangent-( ) ( ) Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex ( )

3-D to be featured in ESPN Rise Magazine

Official 3-D News Release

Following the success of the 2008 Olympic Games many have wondered when the sport of BMX would begin to receive MAINSTREAM SPORTS MEDIA ATTENTION.

BMX was one of the most watched live and revisited events on the NBC website but had yet to begin to be reported on or given attention by the big boys of the mainstream US Sports Media-well the wait may be over.

This fast paced, action packed sport with more than it's fair share of spectacular crashes will receive a major boost as one of it's rising superstars will be featured in the March issue of ESPN Rise-The Magazine.

This ESPN Magazine reaches nearly 2 million monthly readers and has features such rising stars as LeBron James and Dwight Howard of the US NBA, Star NFL running back Adrian Peterson, Candace Parker of the WNBA, NHL Star Sidney Crosby, Olympians Michael Phelps and Allyson Felix and X-Games icons Shaun White and Hannah Teter this magazine has been the leader in introduction the next generation of sports stars in the US and the world.

In March 2010 US PRO BMX Champion Dominique Daniels known as "3-D" will be featured.

She has amassed quite a resume with Amateur World Titles, US Amateur Titles, USA Cycling Titles in both Junior and Elite categories, The Women's Pro Title for The National Bike League and 2 Time American Bicycle Association Pro Champion (considered by many the most difficult BMX title in the world to win) and all this was accomplished by her 17th birthday.

With her sights set on 2012, Dominique has begun training for Road, Track (Velodrom) and Mountain Bike trying to qualify in multiple cycling disciplines which could possibly change the sport forever.

For now, this Mesquite High School Senior, plans to train and compete in major events throughout 2010, If ESPN's track record continues, we will see a lot more of her as she leads BMX into the light of MAINSTREAM SPORTS AND SPORTS CENTER.

Los Angeles, CA – Tioga’s relentless determination to develop the fastest race tires available results in the PowerBand - a front specific tire designed to fully capitalize on the well groomed surfaces of today’s race tracks.

The PowerBand shares many of the same design elements with the famed PowerBlock but with extra emphasis on reducing drag and minimizing rotational weight which are more critical to a front tire.  The fast rolling aspect of the PowerBand is obvious.  Harder to see is the improved stability made possible by a combination of the tire’s profile and the width of its center tread band.  Such unique design principles let Tioga engineers adopt a smaller width casing for substantial weight savings, while at the same time enhancing all the important functionalities of a front tire.  The result is a 1.85” PowerBand with performance gains shattering that of wider, heavier tires. 

A true difference maker that during testing, Tioga rider Donny Robinson proclaimed the PowerBand “The best front tire I’ve ever ridden” while John ‘The Jackal’ Purse stated “The tire is awesome.  It felt very secure in turns and I increased speed in 50 yard sprints.”  Similar glowing feedbacks from select members of Redline Factory, GHP Factory, SE Racing and Morphine Industries reinforces that for racing on hardpacked, well maintained tracks, the PowerBand is the ultimate choice up front, and when paired with the PowerBlock, this “Power Series” is the fastest tire combo ever released by Tioga.

The PowerBand will be available in February 2010 in one size with either standard or S-Spec trim, as below.

PowerBand 20x1.85”                         PowerBand 20x1.85” S-Spec

60 TPI Casing                                     120 TPI Cylex Casing

UTC Rubber Compound                    UTC Rubber Compound

Steel Bead                                           Folding Bead

345g; 12.17oz.                                    270g; 9.52 oz.

About Tioga: With over 30 years in the cycling industry focusing on function with style, Tioga has created numerous industry advancing components from the Comp-III BMX racing tire to the industry standardization of the 1-1/8” steering system.   Tioga’s new generation of stylish components are functionally designed to accommodate serious athletes, and to reflect their commitment to the sport.



120 Felt frames supplied to Swiss facility to help develop the sport globally and support Olympic hopefuls


"We’re pleased to be a sponsor of this incredible facility and the athletes who train there,” said Felt President Bill Duehring. “We’re especially proud to support those athletes from developing nations that might not have the resources or elite level of support to help them chase their Olympic dreams.”


Located in the Swiss Alps and surrounded by roads and trails that are ideal for road and mountain bike training, the World Cycling Centre was created to help develop the sport globally. To that end, WCC coaches identify riders from countries that lack fully funded national teams and invite them to live in Aigle to train at the WCC. In 2009, more than 83 riders from 38 different countries benefited from the WCC facilities. Since opening, the WCC has hosted 717 athletes from 113 countries.


UCI President Pat McQuaid expressed appreciation for the sponsorship. “The World Cycling Centre is delighted with this new partnership, which will benefit promising young riders in all the disciplines promoted at the WCC,” he said. “The UCI’s training and coaching center would simply not be able to fulfill its missions without the support of all its partners, and one of the most important of these is Felt.”


Athletes who have trained at the WCC range from Olympic champions to unknown riders with untapped potential. American Sarah Hammer, a two-time world champion who is sponsored by Felt, currently lives in Aigle and trains at the WCC.


The WCC facilities include an indoor 200-meter velodrome, an Olympic-style BMX course and a fully equipped gymnasium. In addition to training athletes, there are coaching programs as well. In some cases, a coach is invited along with an athlete so that, together, they can take what they learn back to their home country. Beyond that, the WCC also recently introduced programs aimed at training team directors. It’s all part of the mission to improve cycling opportunities all around the world.


Felt’s sponsorship of the WCC began January 1, 2010 and continues through December 31, 2012.

STAY STRONG  KEN NORK!At the ABA Silver Dollar National in Reno this past weekend, one of the Steel Wheels Indoor (Portage, Indiana) local riders, and a friend to all, Ken Nork, broke his neck during the 2nd round of competition and the medical word is not good. Evidently the injuries that Ken sustained have left him paralyzed.

There are many fundraising efforts being launched to aid the family....the first being this weekend with the Annual Steel Wheels' Answer Winter Supercamp.

The fine folks at Answer Supercamp will be donating a portion of all camp fees to the Nork family which is much needed in this terrible time of recovering from this tough accident.

The Steel Wheels staff family will also be having a bake sale at the regular Saturday night race.

If you are in the area and can make the camp, you can get some great training tips from Burlin Harris and the Answer Supercamp staff, PLUS, you'll be helping out the Nork family.

Stick around, race the Saturday evening race, grab some of the tasty baked goods that Jackie Althizer and the Steel Wheels Bakers will be showcasing and we can help together to aid a BMX family that has a tough road ahead of them.

Volunteer at a race, get a free day at a Disney theme park 

HILLIARD, OH (Jan. 5, 2010) — The National Bicycle League has been approved to be a partner in Disney’s Give A Day, Get A Day program. As a result, persons who wish to volunteer one day at a pre-approved NBL National or Regional event can receive a free day’s admission to a Disney theme park. 

Disney wants to inspire one million people to volunteer a day of service to a participating organization in their communities. Disney is celebrating these volunteers' good works by giving each of them a 1-day, 1-theme park ticket to the Disneyland® Resort or Walt Disney World® Resort, free. There's no better time to make a dream come true for others and let Disney make a few come true for you.  

To participate in the program, you must visit the Disney website ( and sign-up for the event during which you are interested in volunteering. Requests must be made at least two weeks before the event date. Ticket quantities for this program are limited. One ticket per person, regardless of the number or hours of volunteer service completed. The program begins January 1, 2010 and continues until tickets are distributed or December 15, 2010, whichever occurs first. For a full list of terms and conditions, please visit the above website. 

NBL CEO, Gary Aragon states, “Our volunteers are a vital part of our success here at the NBL, and it gives me great pleasure that Disney recognizes the importance and value of volunteerism. Through this program, our volunteers will receive more than just our sincere gratitude, but a chance to enjoy the magic of Disney. We’re very grateful to Disney for their recognition of our organization.”





QUESTION: “What’s the best way to train for BMX racing?”

ANSWER:Whatever way works best for you!”

Finding that “way” can seem next to impossible, at times.  With the limited amount of quality information available, the aspiring BMX racer is forced to seek help in web forums where the advice is often costly, outdated and sometimes just plain ridiculous.  Those who position themselves as the “experts” charge a premium for their “knowledge.”

Vet Pro, Paul Caldwell, has over 25 years of strength and conditioning experience for sports.  He has been helping athlete reach their performance goals for the past 15 years and is the owner of “The Compound,” one of the most hardcore training facilities in Texas, catering to athletes.  He is now helping BMX athletes achieve their goals.

“40 SECONDS TO GLORY” is an A-Z training book, designed to teach its readers how to train properly, rather than just telling them what to do.  With an easy to follow, 8-Step process, you will be sure to find the perfect way for you to train to improve your BMX racing!

*Not only is this book filled with valuable training information, readers will also have access to a private training blog and video media to help answer training questions.*

Roskilde (Denmark) BMX Club breaks new ground raising money for international top of the line BMX stadium.

The fund raising concept is called micro sponsorship. The idea is to showcase both private and commercial sponsors cheaply and easily on the club website while supporting the good cause of putting the final touches to this unique new BMX stadium.

What is a micro sponsorship?

At the top of the club website, and on the website, we have placed a word cloud. The words displayed are all submitted by users and each word represents a donation to the club's BMX stadium project. The typeface of the word depends on the donation: the larger the amount the larger and more colourful the word. The word can also link to the sponsor's website; a cheap alternative to traditional banner ads for sponsors with an interest in the commercial value of the sponsorship - and it only takes a few mouse-clicks.

The plan is to sell 100.000 words, which appear in random order in the word cloud, meaning that a new combination of words is displayed every time the page is loaded.


Micro sponsorships have several advantages:

  • It's easy: the sponsor buys the word via the internet.
  • It's cheap: For a small amount companies can have their name associated with the BMX sport in Roskilde.
  • It's new: The word cloud is search engine optimised, so the sponsor's word will appear in wholly now search-contexts and may attract internet traffic from a hitherto unexplored user segment.
  • Private sponsors get a unique sense of ownership of the website - and it's for everyone. Just like the finished BMX stadium will be for everyone from Expert 6 to the SX elite!

When 50.000 words are sold a banner with all the words will be printed and displayed at the BMX stadium.

Be among the first. Buy your word today!

For more information and high res. illustrations please contact Ronni Lück (

The new BMX stadium will also feature dirt jump trails and will be located near the existing skate/BMX freestyle park and the ROSKILDE FESTIVAL site. A data sheet for the BMX and BMX SX track design is available here:

Ramiro Marino is the new Argentina #1 Pro

All about focus in the air by Ramiro Marino

The Argentina National Championships were finished in one of the cities where BMX is the most important sport.

La Rioja had the pleasure to see the battle of the Pros, where the two fastest guys had the chance to fight it out for the title, the local guy Fabricio Maturano and the rider who was the best latinamerican rider in 2009, Ramiro Marino.

Just seven months ago Daniel Brizuela, of asked Ramiro about this title and he said: "Yes, I wanna get the title this year, I never won it before so I will fight until the end". "In the future this one will be important when you put all of them together side by side".

Also this title will be notable for Marino because he couldn't attend two rounds of them while he was running the UCI Supercross BMX World Cups representing Argentina.

NBL Christmas Classic

Race Report

The GT/SC Actionsports team made their GT debut this week at the Xmas Classic and did not disappoint.

Joey Albright Masters was on fire on Day#1 with impressive wins in his motos and winning his main impressively to the cheers of his fans. Day#2 Joey was set to complete the sweep when he ran into some trouble in the second corner ending his day and placing 5th.

Jeremy Thompson 35X/Cr came to Louisville with one thing on his mind and that was to reasert himself as the man to beat in the 35x/Cr class and he did that on day#1 winning class and taking 2nd in cruiser. He followed that with two 2nd place finishes on day#2. Dylan Perez 16x took his power series GT to the main on day#1 and just missed out on day#2.

Cole Tesar 13x who accomplished what every rider dreams of  by winning the NBL title on his 20" then went out and won World #1 in Australia on both bikes and if thats not enough he goes and tops it off with a Nag#1 in the ABA. Tesar took a 2nd on day#1 and rebounded and showed why this might be the most talented rider of 2009 with a win on day#2.

Coleman Habib 11x took a big fall during practice  and was knocked silly even before the first gate drop but came back out and shook off the cobb webs to take a second on day#1 and a big win on day#2.

Vaughn Herrick 10x made the trip up from Conroe TX for one day of racing and took a second in a hard fought class. TJ Albright 10x took the long ride with his dad to show off his newly built GT and like his dad never gave an inch all weekend and finished with a second and a third in class.

The GT girls were not to be denied their glory this weekend with Felicia Stancil 14G continuing her winning ways taking a double double for the weekend. Taylor Williams 13G was in the deepest of all girl classes with 16 talented riders in class. Williams finished the weekend with a third on day#1 and a second on day#2. Mckenna Calhoun 9G walked away from the class doubling for the weekend.

Rad Canyon BMX loses Bryan Oblad

January 3, 2010

Borrowing from a quote of Samuel Johnson, “It matters not how a man dies, but how he lives”. That being the case, it defines our beloved fallen BMX brother Bryan Oblad who passed on this Saturday, January 2nd, at the youthful age of 37 while doing what he and his family loves… racing BMX.

Bryan and his two daughters, Brooke and Breanna, along with his brother Mike and father Steve were a passionate and dedicated BMX family and were fixtures at all of the local races in Salt Lake. You could not miss Bryan at the track as he was always on one of his tricked out SE BMX bikes and sporting his trademark baby-blue and brown SE Racing jersey. Bryan has been a BMX enthusiast since the 1970’s and he took great pride in his collection of old-school and new school SE BMX bikes that he kept in mint condition. His favorite bike in his collection was baby-blue Floval Flyer with black Skyway mag wheels and it was fitting that it was his ride of choice in his last race around the Rad Canyon Indoor track.  

A tough competitor on the track, Bryan was an always smiling and an obliging volunteer off the track by handing out trophy slips with his family at the finish line at most of the local races. The Oblad family was a team of their own in a sense that they were always together. Outside of racing Bryan also had the challenge of raising two girls which is a huge feat in itself. BMX was in the girls’ blood too and they were also earning a name for themselves as great racers as they were often seen out front of their respective classes. In fact Brooke, the eldest, has earned the title of the fastest female racer in the state by winning the last two girls Pro-Am races. Needless to say, Bryan was very proud of his girls’ accomplishments in racing and in life and the beautiful young ladies they have become.

Bryan was a great friend to many and had a profound impact on all he met and that was evident in the outpouring of support at the race the day following his passing. The BMX community came together as a family this day in the memory of Bryan in celebration of his life and his contributions. His two daughters told us they wanted to be where their Dad’s heart was on the day after losing him.  In honor of their father and brother, Brooke, Breanna and Mike showed amazing composure in suiting up in baby blue and brown SE uniforms and taking a memorial lap with Bryan’s cherished SE bikes. Though it was a sad gathering it was also uplifting to feel the love, friendship and Bryan’s spirit that filled the arena. The event strengthened each other’s mutual bond and heightened their appreciation of how special our BMX community is.

A fundraiser for the family will be held at the next Rad Canyon Indoor race weekend of January 22nd-24th which will be sponsored by Ken Garff Nissan of Riverdale. Please watch for updates on or  and other supporting websites on details of the fundraiser and other opportunities to help the Oblad family during this difficult time.   

Thank you and God bless the Oblad family… R.I.P. Bryan, you will be missed but never forgotten.

The position will remain vacant until Competition Congress. 

HILLIARD, OH (Dec.31, 2009) — The long standing National Bicycle League leader, Bob Tedesco, is retiring from his position as NBL Director of Competition effective immediately. The NBL Board of Directors will leave the position vacant until after Competition Congress in early February when a new Board of Directors will be elected. 

On his retirement, Bob said, “The time has come for me to step down and retire as the Director of Competition of the National Bicycle League. This position I have held for many years has been both challenging and rewarding. It has been my sincere pleasure to serve the National Bicycle League in this capacity, and I truly appreciate all the support that I have always received from the Board of Directors.   

I am extremely pleased with Gary Aragon’s approach and vision for the future of the NBL and my retirement will help him and the Board members prepare and review candidates for their selection after Congress. I have immense confidence and am certain that Gary will succeed in making the NBL once again “The Best in BMX”. 

I look forward to my complete retirement from the NBL and look forward to the future and having a good time with Polly and our family and whatever else the future holds for me.” 

During the interim, the NBL will be accepting resumes for the position. Once the new Board of Directors is in place, they will review the candidates and choose the best candidate based on the criteria set forth in the NBL Bylaws. 

The NBL would like to sincerely thank Bob Tedesco for his lifetime of service to the NBL and BMX Racing, and wishes him happiness in his retirement.

Jared Graves leads Sam Willoughby in the

4th Australian National Round on the Gold Coast.

Second win for Beijing BMX star

Jared Graves has started off his new year with another bang by winning the fourth BMX National Tour on the Gold Coast today. The Beijing Olympian also claimed the previous round held last night. Today Graves got an early lead and managed to hold off a mid field challenge by UCI Supercross World Cup series winner, Sam Willoughby. Graves was chased home by Willoughby and fellow Adelaide rider, Brian Kirkham from Adelaide who finished in second and third respectively.

For Graves to finish ahead of his protégée, Willoughby, was a relief.

“I’ve had a bit to do with Sam. He has all the talent in the world,’” said Graves. “My plan for the weekend was to beat Sam!”

Western Australian rider, Lauren Reynolds finally achieved her first win as an elite rider today. The win served as a confidence boost for the national high performance team member after being unlucky during race finals recently.

Early in the race Reynolds lost some ground but waited until the second straight to take the lead. She managed to stay clear of some cat and mouse action between national champion, Caroline Buchanan and America’s Alise Post. Buchanan claimed second while Post slipped back into third.

“I totally missed my gate. I thought I’d back off a little bit and wait for the right time. That’s what I did and was lucky enough to get the win,” said Reynolds.

Fourth place was claimed by Rachel Bracken from Townsville. Jaclyn Wilson –Thompson from Bendigo placed fifth and retains the elite women’s series lead with Buchanan now second overall.

The Junior women’s was won by Melinda McLeod while Matthew Dunsworth continued his domination of the junior men’s race. McLeod made it into second place in the overall series while Kirsten Dellar leads. Dunsworth maintains his stranglehold over the series.

The next two national rounds will be held in Canberra on 5 – 6th March with the final and seventh round to be held in conjunction  with the national championships in Shepparton in May.

The VRP/Bike Alley/Red Brick Pizza bike shop team ended its great season with a team victory at the ABA Grand Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and earned the #1 Bike Shop team title for the year.

This season was a great success because of many people involved.  First and foremost, the parents for all the hard work in getting their kids to practices and races.  Second, for the hard work each team rider did to prepare for all of the races.  Lastly, the season could not have happened without support from all our sponsors, including VRP BMX, Bike Alley, Red Brick Pizza, Vitamin Water, Troy Lee Designs, Intense BMX, T.H.E., ODI, S&M, Crupi, Vapor, House of Stickers and CHISM Commercial.

As far as the Grands Results are concerned, it was another team effort.  Jordan Nopens (2 X National #1), Dani George (NAG #5), Megan Chism (NAG #9), A.J. Saldivar (NAG #6 & #2 cruiser), Kyle Stan (National #2 & NAG #1 in both classes), Reid Campbell (NAG #5 & #6 cruiser), Kyle Fernandez (NAG #10 and #6 cruiser), Josh Klatman (NAG #3 and #1 cruiser), David Archibald (NAG #3), as well as Julian Vargas, Matt Chism, EJ Pasowicz and Danielle Sanchez made contributions during the season.

In preparation for the 2010 season, which will be Bike Alley's 30th anniversary, we have hooked up with Redman Bikes and will be on board Redman frames. We look forward to competing as a Bike Shop team against some of the great teams that gave us a run for our money to the very end.  A special thanks to Ruben Sanchez at Bike Alley and Mike Redman at Redman Bikes and all our other great sponsors Troy Lee Designs, Intense BMX, T.H.E., ODI, S&M, Vapor, CHISM Commercial, Embee Performance and XOWii for this coming year.

Happy New Year & See You in Reno! - Efriam Miranda, TM

Jared Graves Takes Big BMX National Win On The Gold Coast!

After crashing in the Beijing Olympic final, Jared Graves has returned to the BMX track with success on his mind and taken out the National Series round on the Gold Coast overnight. The 27 year old from Toowoomba in Queensland dominated a star studded final which included USA’s Danny Caluag and Japan’s Tatsumi Matsushita.

It was the defending national series winner, Brian Kirkham from Adelaide, who lay down the challenge to Graves but Kirkham had to be content with second place. The pressure was too much for fellow Adelaide rider and current world cup series winner, Sam Willoughby, who dominated the heats to finish in fifth place in the final just behind Josh Callan from Victoria. Caluag placed a respectable third.

The colourful Kamakazi also had a comeback to racing after a break following the Olympics and made it to the semi-finals.

The women’s race was taken out by national champion, Caroline Buchanan from Canberra, while USA rider, Alise Post impressed with second place. Western Australia’s Lauren Reynolds claimed third while Queensland’s Rachel Bracken rode into fourth spot. The junior men’s race was secured by Matthew Dunsworth from Victoria while the Western Australian rider, Kristen Dellar won the junior women’s race.

Champbikx winners were: 16 boys – Bodi Turner (Eastfield, VIC); 16 girls - Madiison Janssen (Nerang, QLD); 15 boys – Kerrod Connors (Nerang, QLD); 15 girls – Macey Gore (Ashmore, QLD); 14 boys – Aaron Nottle (Westside, WA); 14 girls – Jade Parker (Bundaberg, QLD).

The round also doubled as a UCI Oceania Round with riders scoring valuable international points.
