In the 1986 BMX movie, "Rad", the hero, Cru Jones battles his way thru adversity to make it to the biggest race of the year. Cru ends up taking FAST laps with all of the pros of the day and where did they do battle?

HELL TRACK! A diabolical minefield of "Cereal Bowls", 40 foot high drop in's and jumps so big and death defying, only the RADDEST of the Rad could take the challenge

Well, the UCI has come up with it's version of Hell Track, and it showed up today at the UCI BMX Supercross Madrid.

With a wink and a nod, UCI Track Builder, Tom Ritz said "Yeah, maybe the box jump WILL show up in London for the 2012 Olympics. You never know!" With the massive start hill, Ritz's patented "Berm Jump" and now the "Box Jump", the SX tracks are looking more and more like Hell Track, every day.

In "Rad", Hell Track had "The Cereal Bowl", a bowl shaped jump that the riders exited by jumping off of the end of a giant spoon shaped ramp that was laying in the Cereal Bowl. Is that next? Who knows? One thing about UCI BMX Supercross, it's NEVER boring! Click Here For More On The BMX Mania UCI Madrid Race Report Page!

Los Angeles, CA -- Two new models of Tioga’s D-Spyder BMX saddles are hitting dealer floors today.

Starting with the performance oriented D-Spyder S-Spec with its proprietary Carbonite O translucent shell and Hollow Composite Rail that together, at 145g, creates the lightest BMX saddle ever offered by Tioga.  But besides being almost 20% lighter than the previous D-Spyder, the S-Spec SpyderWeb™ shell also offers 30% more base flex for greater overall seating comfort (should you decide to sit that is). 

D-Spyder S-Spec MSRP US$75.00

Next up is the D-Spyder ‘Original’, a more durable and economical version of the previous D-Spyder.  Just like the S-Spec above, the ‘Original’ retains the same proven shape but utilizes the more durable Carbonite composite shell matched to a stronger but less exotic hollow Chromoly rail.  At 175g, the D-Spyder ‘Original’ is still one of the lightest BMX saddle on the market, and now, it’s also the most affordable D-Spyder saddle ever!  Whereas the D-Spyder S-Spec is designed for performance at the expense of some durability, the ‘Original’ is built strong and can take on the rigors of any BMX action without issue!  The D-Spyder ‘Original’ is available in white, black, green, and chocolate.

D-Spyder Original MSRP US$55.00 

Of course the best part of all is that both versions are available now at your local independent bike retailer.  For more information, please visit

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.

HRPdesigns Factory Racing Desoto Race Report

What can you say about this past weekend’s racing?  Beautiful weather on Thursday and Friday (Day 1 of the Super Nationals), and then the rain, snow, and cold temperature roll in for Saturday (USA Cycling BMX Championship) and Sunday (Day 2 of the ABA Super Nationals).  

HRPdesigns had a small team in attendance with Ryan Livaudais, Chris Kennedy, Brandon Pyper, Trevor Harrison, and Stuart Harrison filling out the roster for Friday’s national. 

Overall it was a pretty good day with Ryan taking the 2 spot in 21-25 cruiser, and Brandon Pyper and Chris Kennedy settling for the 4th in 31-35cr and 36-40x respectively.  Trevor Harrison raced well and came up just short in the 9x semis, and Stuart has seen better days on the track. 

Saturday was a different story for the HRP boys, Trevor took the day off to visit family in Texas, so it was just four riders, or so we thought.  Chris unfortunately has a nagging injury that flared up and with the arctic temperature that came in that day, he decided his weekend was over and headed back to LA.  Brandon and Stuart found the weather to just be too cold and called it a day after round one, leaving Ryan as the sole HRP rider.

Ryan made the most of it by standing on the podium for the bronze in a tough 17-24 cruiser class at the USA Cycling BMX Championship.  Congrats to him!   

After hitting up the SX race on Saturday night at Cowboy Stadium (that place is amazing) we wake up Sunday morning to 3” of snow on the ground, and the weather was no warmer, we even heard in the pits the wind chill was around 19 degrees. 

Only three riders in action Sunday as Ryan continued his podium ways with a 3rd in 21-25cr, Pyper braved the cold for another 4th in 31-35cr and once again Trevor rode well but ended up on the outside looking in the 9x semi’s. 

Overall it was a very fun weekend, despite the cold and wet conditions; the track was in great shape and very fun.  Our hats off to the Desoto and ABA crew for a great facility and track to race on. 

HRPdesigns would also like to thank our sponsors, without their support the team would not be possible, Fly Racing (, Clayborn Bicycles (, Cyclecraft Bicycles (, Snap BMX Products (, Sun Ringle (, Kovachi Wheels (, and Cane Creek (

HRPdesigns Factory Racing (2010 ABA Gator Nationals, Oldsmar Florida) 

Opening up the 2010 Season, the team debuted the new colors, new uniform and a few new riders in the sunny warm surroundings of Tampa Bay.  The new riders for the 2010 season are 9x-Trevor Harrison, 12x-Garrett Shaw, and 14 girl/Jr. Devo rider-Kendra Stoddard. 

It was a tough weekend with a deep talent pool of riders in all age groups.  The racing was very difficult, but there were some outstanding performances by the HRP guys and girl.    

Luke Segal (28-35X) – had the best results, with a strong 1st place on Saturday and 2nd on Sunday (hey, you can’t win them all, but Luke does come close)  

Brandon Pyper (31-35 Cruiser) – pulled down the 2 spot both days for a solid weekend. 

Ryan Livaudais (21-25 Cruiser, 19-27X) – Ryan had a tough day on Saturday with only a 6th place in cruiser to show for it, but Sunday Ryan rode to a strong 2nd on cruiser and made the hardest main in BMX, 19-27X settling for 6th at the finish line. 

Chris Kennedy (36-40X & Cruiser) – Chris was battling with back pains suffered in Guthrie a few weeks prior and it showed, he had a terrible weekend on 20”, but rode through the pain to make the even harder cruiser main both days, pulling a 8th and 6th respectively. 

Kendra Stoddard (14 girl / Jr. Devo) – what can we say, it is amazing that Kendra is even riding again after suffering a major injury back in October at the Disney Cup, she is actually riding ahead of schedule and working herself back into shape.  She worked hard and placed 4th and 5th in Junior Development on Saturday and Sunday, and 6th in 14 girls on Sunday. 

Garrett Shaw (12X & Cruiser) – One of our newest rider was able to ride to a 7th place in cruiser on Saturday, both just could not put it together on 20” all weekend. 

Trevor Harrison (9X & cruiser) – another new recruit and Dr. Ken Spring (36-40X) – our most intellectual rider, both rode hard but did not have the results to show for it. 

The team finished in a points tie for 5th on Saturday, but apparently lost the tie breaker and are listed in the 6th spot, and placed solidly in 6th on Sunday.  Not the results we are capable of, but encouraging none the less. 

HRPdesigns Factory Racing would not be possible without the support of our sponsors, Clayborn Bicycles, Fly Racing, Snap BMX Products, Fred’z handlebars, Sun Ringle, Kovachi Wheels, Cane Creek, and Cyclecraft Bicycles.

UCI Press release UCI BMX Supercross Madrid preview
2010 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup kicks off in Madrid Spain this week!
Madrid 22 March 2010 - On March 26 and 27 Madrid is once again host to the first stop of the 2010 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup presented by Swatch. More than 170 Elite riders (men and women) from 25 countries will compete. This premier BMX Racing series consists of five events during the 2010 season. The Supercross races are the main qualifying events for the 2012 Olympic games and feature total prize money of €100’000 (135,000US$) per year.

The Madrid event will be held in the Palacio de Deportes, a magnificent indoor arena in Spain’s capital. Over 3.000 m3 dirt will be brought into the arena to build the spectacular BMX Supercross track. Here is a
link to the track layout.

This will be the first time in 2010 all Elite riders will meet. Over the winter a number of them raced in the North American competition. Sam Willoughby (AUS), last year’s overall men's World Cup winner, still looks like the man to beat. In the ABA Winter Nationals in Phoenix Arizona on March 5 and 6 the current Junior World Champion was again a strong performer.

In the women's competition Shanaze Reade (GBR) is back on the bike again and also looked strong in the mud of Phoenix. Reed will give last year’s consecutive Supercross World Cup winner Laëtitia Le Corguillé (FRA) a run for her money in 2010. See a 2010 season preview video that gets you up to date in a few minutes.

For all the fans worldwide, the UCI BMX Supercross has a lot on offer. Each round of the Supercross World Cup 2010 will be webstreamed live. Watch on Saturday 27 March. Last year, over 600,000 viewers headed over to to view the exciting format of UCI BMX Supercross race action, as well as watch the UCI BMX World Championships. On top of that all our European fans can tune in to Eurosport 2 as well.

Still to be confirmed is the season’s finale in Monaco, just a week after the Fréjus stop. Imagine a very spectacular BMX Supercross track in the Monaco Harbour, creating the perfect setting for the season’s decider. Needless to say Monaco is also the ideal setting for the BMX annual awards ceremony.

July 29 - Aug 1 - UCI World Championships - Pietermaritzburg, South Africa
Sept 17 -18 Supercross #3 - Chula Vista, CA USA Olympic Training Center

The highlight will come from USA Cycling’s four championship categories – elite men, elite women, junior men, and junior women.  Jason Rogers (Mesquite, Texas) will ride to defend his elite men’s title while women’s powerhouse Dominique Daniels (Gilbert, Ariz.) will look to add another Stars-and-Stripes jersey to her collection. Additionally, Corben Sharrah (Tucson, Ariz.), presently the number-one ranked junior rider in the world, will be on hand to shake things up in the junior men’s contest.

Also racing for national titles in Desoto will be the sport’s amateur racers who, in addition to Stars-and-Stripes jerseys, will be competing for a chance to represent the U.S. at the 2010 UCI BMX World Challenge at the end of July in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.

Racing begins at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. For more information about the event, including a schedule, please click here.  Stay tuned to for complete coverage of the 2010 USA Cycling BMX National Championships, including a race report and photo gallery.

REDLINE REIGNS IN PHOENIX3 Elite Wins out of 4 podium spots!
With UCi "Country points" now on the line - to determine how many riders a country will get to send to the 2012 Olympics, there was a larger-than-normal International turnout at the ABA Winternationals in Phoenix, Arizona.
And among the Foreign comp were Redline's Global Team members from Canada, Japan, The Netherlands and Australia.

Joining them, of course, were USA's ALISE POST and DENZEL STEIN; who both looked incredibly strong this weekend and have been training hard at the U.S. Olympic Training Center with their fulltime residency.

SATURDAY: With the Arizona sun shining, the Dutch team dropped out one by one through the quarters and semi's - as well as Denzel. And by the time the Elite Mens main lined up, there was only one REDLINE Factory rider in the gate o' 8 .... SAM WILLOUGHBY.
So far this year, Sam has found himself in the mains 90% of the time.
Once the gate slammed, it was Argentina's Christian Bercerine out front, but our Aussie mate was reelin' him in through the tough pro section and nearly closed the gap by the finishline. Score Sam with a close 2nd place.

ALISE POST also found herself on the second tier of the Elite podium, after duking it out down the first straightaway with (ex-Redline) UK's Shanaze Reade.
But in JR.ELITE, it was all Canada~Redline's TORY NYHAUG's race - and he held off the hard charging Connor Fields to score his first Jr victory of the season.

SUNDAY: You've got to give it up for Phoenix weather forecasters. They called for rain to start up around 11:00; and after some misty drizzles during the motos and quarters, the skies opened up for the semi's and was raining cats 'n dogs by main-time.
The slick track conditions always makes for some excitement, and sent most of the Redline team scrambling for a tire changes. Some guys swapped over to TIOGA Comp-X tires, while guys like Denzel stuck with their Powerblocks. The Dutch crew invaded the Redline toolbox and confiscated all of Carne$' zip-ties, to add some side traction to their treads. And it almost worked for MARTIJN SCHERPEN, who was feeling comfortable in the 4th place transfer position in his semi, until he got slammed over the berm in a last-ditch move for the main.

Perhaps the biggest suprise of the entire weekend was watching the Japanese riders in the mud. Who would've guessed that Redline's MASA SAMPEI and his fellow countryman Akafumi Sakamoto were mudders?! They breezed thru their quarters and semis and both found themselves in the muddy main. This was a HUGE accomplishment for Japan. Only a few years ago, they were struggling to make single-A mains, and now here Japan had two in the Big Show. In fact, in one moto, Masa was seen snappin' the Olympic Gold medalist - Maris Stromsberg!
Chalk this up as a sign of the times - as International riders are all stepping up their game and closing in on the same level of American BMX pros.

RL Team in MudAgain, in JR.ELITE, it was all TORY NYHAUG. He doubled his score with yet another win - this time in the slip-'n-slide track conditions.
In ELITE WOMEN, ALISE "The Beast" was the favorite going in, after losing Shanaze in the semi. It was all hers to win or slide-out trying. The good news was that she was able to stay upright from start to finish and laid down the gauntlet to grab the big 1st place check. Better news yet - is that Dutch Redline rider JOYCE SEESING was right on Post's tail and made it a Redline 1-2 finish, with her 2nd place score.

Due to mass crashes in the semis, the Elite main was mostly made up of 7 first-time AA-main makers and 1 "regular"--SAM WILLOUGHBY. Blocking out any fear of the mud, the Aussie snapped hard to holeshot and pulled away from the pack as if the track were smooth and hardpacked. Sam made it look easy by jumping the third straight and then played it safe thru the rhythm section to score his first AA-pro victory of the year.
Japan's Masa Sampei crossed the finish in 7th place - helping make Japanese BMX history, and giving Japan some precious "Country" points towards earning a spot in the Olympics games.

ABA Winter Nationals

Risen BMX factory team

race report

This past weekend the Risen BMX Factory riders rolled into Phoenix Arizona looking for some fun in the sun. Saturday Zach Zito raced his way one spot short of the podium in 14 cruiser.

Sunday there was no sun to be found but plenty of fun, in the Phoenix mud. With the rainy weather it was anyone’s race and Risen team proved to be true “mudders”.  

Noah Barrette Slipped his way to a 4th in 9-10 open and a 7th in 10 experts. Zach Zito managed a 6thwhile Douglas King finished 4th in 17-20 cruiser.  

The next stop for the Risen BMX Factory team will be Bakersfield California for the ABA U.S. Nationals.  

As always Risen BMX would like to thank all their sponsors. GHP, Troy Lee Designs, Tioga, ODI, Atomlab, Vitamin water, Riderz Ready, Composite sprockets.

GHP adds two new riders

to their factory roster

This just in from Greg Hill Products, on March 5th two new GHP factory riders were spotted at the ABA winter nationals. 

Corey Salas, a Simi Valley local was promoted to the GHP factory team just before the Winter nationals. A long time attendee of Greg’s local Speed Seminars, Corey has shown a ton of dedication and a lot improvement over the past year. He also has shown the maturity and attitude that it takes to be a part of the GHP’s factory team. 

Dakota Isenberg was the other rider to dawn the orange, yellow and black of GHP factory. At the beginning of the season Dakota found himself without a factory ride due to economic cutbacks. GHP factory team manager Matt Zito saw this as an opportunity to strengthen the factory roster. Isenberg, is a consistent main maker, and brings the experience and leadership GHP is looking of. 

The rest of the GHP factory team joined Dakota and Corey in Phoenix. Arizona local boy Justin Hendley took home a fourth in 10 cruiser on Saturday. Sunday he improved by two spots for the second place finish.  

Austin Barrette ran both class and open. He rode hard all weekend finishing second in open and fourth in class. Racing in the mud Sunday he would take the top spot in 11-12 open.  

Corey Salas took two thirds in 16 cruiser. In class, on Sunday, he was ran off the track while battling for position in the mud. Never quitting he would get back on the track and finish sixth.  

Dakota Isenberg made both class, and cruiser mains on Saturday, finishing 8 in class and third in cruiser. This all came after a nasty crash in the first turn that left his knee swollen and sore. With the knee and the bad weather on Sunday, Matt Zito thought it would be best for Dakota to sit the day out. Dakota will be back to full speed in no time.  

GHP's top gun, ABA's 2009 National number one pro, Randy Stumpfhauser would go up against 56 of the top riders from the USA and beyond. In a who's who main event Randy rode to a sixth place. Sunday the mud got the best of just about everyone.  

The 2010 Winter Nationals will go down in history as one of the wettest ever. GHP would like to thank all their sponsors and supporters. Tioga, Troy Lee Designs, Riderz Ready, ODI, Atomlab, Vitamin water, Apex, Composite sprockets.

BMX Racing News, weekend update-March 13-14, 2010



After a great season in 2009 the newest recruits to the UK's, Intense/Route55 race team, Alex and Ryan Brookes were both nominated for 2 top awards at their local Sports Awards evening which was held in Preston over the past weekend.
Ryan, the eldest of the brothers, came home with a highly commended award in the Rising Star category after his winning performance at the British Championships in September and making both finals at the European Indoor race in Belgium earlier this year. Now aboard his new Intense mini race frame Ryan is looking forward to the start of the UK domestic season where he will be looking to win back his National title and retain the British Championship 01 plate.
Younger brother Alex swept everything in his path over the past 12 months on the race track and nothing changed at the presentation evening. He walked away with the Young Achiever / Performance Of The Year Award to add to the double win he took in Belgium this year, and both the National and British titles in 2009. The question for now is if anyone can stop Alex's winning streak in Preston, in England or Internationally as he moves from strength to strength.
The Intense/Route 55 team are extremely proud of the brothers and are excited about seeing them progress even further on their new Intense bikes. Said Co-TM Kelvin Batey " Both boys have represented themselves, their family, Preston and the sport of BMX amazingly well and it just goes to show that even at such a young age you can achieve a lot in anything you do. I'm sure there will be a lot of inspired youngsters in the Preston region now itching to get on a BMX after both Ryan and Alex have given the exposure the sport and themselves deserve!"
Look out for the "Bullet Brookes Brothers" as the new UK season starts very soon!

J&R Bicycles/Intense Team Report, NBL Road Runner and ABA Winter Nationals


The BMX race team made the trek to Las Cruces, New Mexico for the NBL Road Runner Nationals on February 27th and 28th to get the required scores in order to compete for the NBL National and Team titles later in the year. It turned out to be one of the smallest nationals of all time. With the ABA having such a big presence in the Southwestern United States, the NBL doesn’t get a big draw in this region. Nonetheless, the team captured two team victories with Bryce Batten, Levi Pope, KJ Romero, Lauren Whisler, and Tyler Tinsley putting in some great finishes to support the cause.

The following weekend, the entire team attended the ABA Winter Nationals in Phoenix, Arizona at the famous Black Mountain BMX track. With the recent rain events, the track wasn’t as butter smooth as in the past, but I’m sure the ABA and track operators put in a lot of time to get it to the level it was at for the national.

With an incredible pro draw, the atmosphere was exciting and racing was super intense with 274 motos on Saturday. Our very own Matt “Hot Rod” Rubeck did the team proud with an awesome high-low move in Saturday’s main event to take 2nd place in A Pro. This was a nice pay check for Matt after a rough start in Reno. Jason Morris made the main event in Sunday’s A Pro mud race, but crashed and finished 7th for the day.

Bryce “B.B. King” Batten from Glendale, Arizona, used his home track advantage to earn two wins in 10 expert and a 3rd and 4th in 10 cruiser. Also looking great for the team was Ryan Pettigrew. Ryan took two wins in 11 cruiser and a 1st and 3rd place in 11 expert. Teammate Levi “Littleman” Pope, who just had his birthday on Friday, finished with a 5th and 6th place in 11 expert as well.

Zack Vankammen, KJ Romero, Tyler Tinsley, Nick Tuttle, Lauren Whisler, and Jessica Navarro also pulled in some nice finishes to help the team to victory both days. The team scored a nice 215 points on Saturday, followed by 186 points on Sunday to beat out 15 other teams for the weekend.

Team Picture (L to R): Bryce Batten, Jason Morris, Levi Pope, Matt Rubeck, Jessica Navarro, Scott Angus, Lauren Whisler, Tyler Tinsley, Ryan Pettigrew, Zack Vankammen, KJ Romero, and Nick Tuttle.

The team is looking forward to racing the ABA Great Northwest Nationals in a couple weeks, followed by the NBL Easter Classis and Gator Nationals in April. Thanks to our sponsors: J&R Bicycles (, Intense BMX, T.H.E., Intense Tires, and Sinz (, Troy Lee Designs (, Alienation (, and ODI Grips (

UCI BMX Supercross World Cup arrives at the Palacio de Deportes of Madrid

On March 27th, the public in Madrid will shake the Palacio de Deportes. For third time in Spain, lovers of the BMX will have the opportunity to see the best riders of the world.

Riders from all over the world will fight their best for winning the first test of the BMX Supercross World Cup of the UCI (Cycle International Union) for 2010.

Madrid will be the first venue of the 2010 BMX Supercross World Cup. There are four other sites around the world for the 2010 season, including, Copenhagen (Denmark), Chula Vista in California/USA, Frejus, France and Monaco (TBC). Nearly 90 intrepid riders will compete furiously in UCI Supercross competition.

The circuit has been designed by Tom Ritzenthaler, ex-pilot of BMX who has been designated by the UCI as official builder of all the circuits. The layout of Madrid has a new element never seen before in our country, the step up - step down, a spectacular block of 3 meters high and 8 of length that riders will have to overcome using all of their technical repertory. In addition, this fast and exciting circuit will have a double line, one for men and other one for women, given the physical conditions of each one.

The Palacio de Deportes will be full of 3.000 m ³ of dirt that will cover 5.600 m ² of track including the installation of a giant ramp of 8 meters in height where the riders will reach the km/h, three bankings in which the 8 riders that compose every race will have to fight through, the rhythm section and a lot of jumps and  "pro jumps" (jumps of 4 meters high and 14 of length) that the riders will have to execute to get a place in the final.

The Madrid race will be an explosive beginning to the 2010 UCI BMX Supercross season, and there is no better place to be for the World Cup of BMX Supercross UCI, 27 of March 2010 at the Palacio de Deportes of Madrid (Plaza de Felipe II).

MCS Factory Team Signs With Vans

The MCS Factory Team is psyched to announce that we will be using VANS Shoes.

"VANS is a really cool lifestyle brand that fits our image completely!" said Brian Fell, MCS Bicycles Marketing Director/Team Manager.

Millennium BMX Off New Site With NBL Spring Nationals Videos



Cool BMX Race Video is available online from Millennium BMX, a new web site on the net.

Well, it's not "really" new, since it's the brainchild of "G-MO", who has been around the BMX video scene before.

According to G-MO, "I've decided to put my video site back online and.....I shot the NBL Spring Nationals in Morristown this past weekend. I’ll be at various other events providing coverage throughout the year and will be adding older footage from years past soon.

G-MO plans to hit the races that don't have TV coverage to bring some cool video race coverage to the fans.

Check it out, he does a great job and when he sez he has some "old footage", he means it.

He's started out with footage from the 2007 UCI BMX Worlds in Victoria, BC and some great stuff from the '07 ABA Midwest National at the legendary Rockford BMX.

Kick of the celebration with some vids from the NBL Spring Nationals in Morristown, Tennessee.

ABA/UCI BMX Race Report

ABA Winter Nationals - Phoenix, AZ - March 6&7 

Round 4 of the 2010 ABA Pro Series was held this past weekend in Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix is one of the premier ABA racks on the circuit and it was freshly reconfigured for the National. AA Pro/Elite Men was once again stacked with 56 riders on Saturday. With the UCI SX Series about to kick off in just 3 weeks, that will be webcast live on, the International field of Elite riders was huge in Phoenix, many getting there first racing underway for the 2010 season. All 3 Double A marketing riders were in attendance and each made a super stacked Elite Main during the weekend. Here is how they finished up: 

Cristian Becerine has been always known for his incredible first straight speed and the Phoenix track is known as a full horsepower track.

On Saturday, Cristian showcased his power potential in the main event and the great mix of his power on a power track.

When the gate dropped for the Elite main, Cristian holeshotted what may have been the most stacked main event of 2010 and took the lead from the start and never gave it up, winning the biggest event so far of the season.

On Sunday, when the rains came, Cristian decided to race the first few laps, until it was too muddy.

He wanted to make sure he is good and ready for his next event, the South American Games, where he heads off to race in Columbia next week and then onto the 1st round of the UCI SX in Madrid.

Cristian’s sponsors include Free Agent, SINZ Racing, THE Products, Shimano, Stay Strong, Kenda, Thomson, UFO, Tioga, S & M, and 

Randy Stumpfhauser has consistently continued to keep on earning some great results in the ABA Elite Class in 2010 and Phoenix, being one of Randy’s favorite tracks, was looking to be another great weekend. 

After sifting through the 56 riders in qualifiers, Randy was also in the stacked Elite Men’s main event on Saturday.

When the gate dropped, Randy was just off the pace and was back in 8th. Randy was able to pass 2 riders, and the 2 riders he passed were no slackers, so it was still a great run in the main event and the 6th place doesn’t show its true justice.

On Sunday, Randy was 5th in the muddy quarter, but he was saving himself for the big F1 Cart race, where he finished 1st.

Randy’s sponsors include GHP, SINZ Racing, Tangent, THE Products,, Troy Lee Designs, Tioga, and Randy on twitter @Stumpdawgg or on 

Danny Caluag has some great racing memories from the Phoenix track, but this was a weekend he wants to forget in the Elite Men’s Pro Class.

Danny missed out on the Elite Men’s main event both days, but made up for it with a first and second in Elite Men’s Cruiser main events over the weekend.

These finishes help him in the points, as he is looking for a 4th ABA #1 Pro Cruiser title in 2010.

Look for a big team announcement from Danny’s sponsor, Intense BMX later on this week.

Danny’s sponsors include Intense BMX, THE Products, Fly Racing, SINZ Racing, Shimano,

Intense Tyre Systems, Skull Candy, OGIO, Thomson,, S & M, Champion Nutrition, and

Okeeheelee BMX Has Revamped Track and Big Plans for The Easter Classic!

Okeeheelee BMX has a big weekend coming up.....April 3&4, they're hosting the NBL Easter Classic.

The NBL Easter Classic is always a great race and this year looks to be no different as they've been BUSY BUSY BUSY in Okeeheelee!

Track Director, TC and Mitch Horne have been hard at work, revamping the already awesome track in Palm Beach, Florida to make it even better. adding some GREAT new jumps, combinations and awesomeness. TC and Mitch had some BIG help from Nortrax and Hamilton Grading for the equipment donations and would like to send out some props in their direction.

What happened with the track?

How bout......the first straight is still the same step up double roller, second straight now has both amateur and pro sides. The am side is a double, triple roller step up, and the pro side is a double step up jump with a 32 ft double and the same step up as am side going into the turn.

The third straight is now split also with a nice step up out of the turn then on the pro side are 29 ft and 28 ft doubles with a roller then step up and on the am side there's now a step up, two rollers, another step up then a double and a step up.

The last straight now ends the whole process with two little doubles out of the third turn with the same hip and last straight as before.

WHEW! Lots of fun BMX racing, guaranteed to keep everyone busy regardless of skill level, age or proficiency.

If you're up to the challenge, make it on down to West Palm for the NBL Easter Classic and take on some good comp and a GREAT track!

Thanks to Justin Joy for the awesome track description and photos.

Intense BMX Pro Team Race Report ABA Winter Nationals

Phoenix, Arizona March 5-7 

Round 4 of the 2010 ABA Pro Series was held the weekend of March 5-7 in Phoenix, Arizona. Phoenix is a staple on the ABA National Race series and the newly rebuilt track is once again one of the best ABA tracks in the nation. Unfortunately, a huge rainstorm dampened things on Sunday, but the race action was hot on Saturday. The Intense BMX Pro Team had a good weekend with some impressive results.

Danny Caluag and Arielle Martin were the Pro Team riders in attendance and Intense/Phantom/Ontrac sponsored rider Nic Long was in Phoenix as well. The Winter Nationals are a kickoff for many International racers, getting ready for the start of the UCI SX Series in just a few short weeks in Madrid, Spain. This made the gathering of Elite Men and Elite Women’s the largest of the 2010 season.

Arielle Martin competed in her 2nd event for the Intense BMX Pro Team and on Saturday rode some great races on her way to the Women’s Elite Main event. With a stacked International field, she powered her way to a 4th place finish.

Quite impressive, as this was her first race since her injury last month. With the rains on Sunday she decided not to race and focus on preparing for the 1st round of the UCI SX in Spain to be held in 2 weeks. Arielle was recently chosen to be a part of the funded USA Elite Women’s team for the event. 

Danny Caluag was looking to keep his momentum rolling from Oldsmar in the Men’s Elite Class. Unfortunately, a small mistake on Saturday in the semi final kept him out of the main event.

On Sunday, in the mudfest, Danny once again made some mistakes that kept him from the Elite Men’s main event. In the Pro Cruiser Class, Danny put himself back into the main events and kept his winning ways going finishing 1st on Saturday and 2nd on Sunday. Danny is looking to win his 4th consecutive ABA Pro Cruiser title in 2010.

Nic Long, Intense/Phantom/Ontrac Pro had an impressive day on the Phoenix track racing his way into the Elite Men’s main event on Saturday.

Another impressive race from Nic, as this may have been the most stacked main event over the past season of BMX racing! Nic rode great finishing just off of the podium in the Elite Men’s Pro final placing 4th for the day.

There is no limit on the amount of entries a rider can receive, but only one (1) prize per rider. Money Open classes are not included.  

Entry fees are only $25 and all riders in the main event will be awarded $7 in NBL bucks. After racing ten (10) Opens, a rider will receive a free Open class entry at the 2010 Grand National. 

Any rider who raced an Open class at the Christmas Classic, Blue Ridge Nationals, Southern Charm Nationals, Roadrunner Nationals or Spring Nationals is already entered into the drawing. The drawing winners will be announced at the 2010 Grand National. 

First prize will be a 52" Phillips Flat Screen TV (or equivalent value: $1000), second prize will be a 16GB Apple iPad (or equivalent value: $600), and third prize will be a 64GB iPod Touch (or equivalent value: $400). 

NBL Director of Innovations, Erma Miller said, “The Open Series was very successful last year and many riders have been asking for us to have one this year. After discussing it with CEO Gary Aragon, we decided to put together a program this year that gives all the riders a chance to win. 

We expect this program and the three-for-$100 discount (Class/Cruiser/Open) to increase the size of the Open classes and allow for higher bonus points on team sheets. The Open classes are a perfect opportunity for Rookies and Novice riders to test their skills against Experts their own age and at the same time earn chances to win great prizes at the Grands.”

Kirkham takes on Olympian Madill and wins

BMX Australia Official News Release

Adelaide’s Brian Kirkham looks set to take out another BMX Australia National Series title after winning the sixth and penultimate round in Canberra today. Kirkham was too strong for Beijing Olympian, Luke Madill. With a quick start out of the gate Kirkham led from the second straight. Madill finished second with Melbourne’s Joshua Callan just off the pace in third. National Champion, Billy Jolliffe from Newcastle, clashed with Madill in the first turn finishing in eighth spot.

Kirkham leads the series and is 195 points ahead of nearest rival, Callan.

Kirkham was not fazed by Madill sitting behind his wheel in the final at Melba. “I knew that I had the horsepower to get by him,” declared Kirkham. If Luke felt the way I did I don’t think he could’ve come around me.”

After fellow Adelaide rider, Sam Willoughby secured the World Cup title this year, Kirkham expects there will be more South Australian riders on the international scene. “Adelaide has some good riders at the moment. Even with Sam now in the US there is still his brother, Matt and Anthony Dean is back into training too,” explained Kirkham. “It’s a really good scene at the moment.”

Canberra’s Caroline Buchanan secured her second win of the weekend by taking out both BMX national series rounds in Canberra yesterday and today. The current national champion was challenged in the final straight by a fast finishing Rachel Bracken from Townsville. Beijing Olympian, Nicole Callisto from Perth slid out on the final turn leaving Brisbane’s Kelly Percy to take third. Buchanan now takes over the lead in the elite series. Buchanan is well positioned with 504 points while nearest rival, Bracken, is on 376 points.                      

The final and seventh round will be held in early May in conjunction with the BMX Australia National Championships in Shepparton, Victoria.

Over the next two days the national team will prepare on Luke Madill’s Olympic track replica. The team then departs for Madrid to compete in the first UCI BMX World Cup Supercross round at the end of March.

Dominique Daniels graces the cover of March's, ESPN Rise-The Magazine.Official News Release For Immediate Distribution: 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 pact 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.

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 (Velodrome) and Mountain Bike trying to qualify in multiple cycling disciplines which could possibly change the sport forever.

MCS Factory Team Race Report - SSA Qualifier Rounds 5 & 6

This past weekend Rounds 5 & 6 of the Florida State Series was held at Okeeheelee BMX, in West Palm Beach, Florida. There was a much a lot of buzz circulating about in regard to the new track design. Word had spread all over Florida about the track changes and I believe that nobody walked away disappointed. The new layout is MUCH more “Pro Friendly.” The Okeeheelee crew lead by Mitch Horne and TC Cross did an amazing job in the layout and preparation of the course. The new layout features two pro straights running parallel to the amateur straights. For a good look at the track both normal view and a crazy helmet-cam clip log on too Oh yeah, “Flat Stanley” made a guest appearance in West Palm Beach!

The MCS Factory Team was on hand to get some good scores in. Though Mother nature wanted to ruin every bodies day on Saturday by having a cold front move through the state. The morning was overcast and chilly until about 2:30 or so when the winds picked up and the rain began to fall. The SSA decided to put everything on hold after the semis and wait it out. The word was given to come back at 6pm and we’ll have a decision. Well that decision came3 early as at 5:45 it was announced that we would be racing at 6:30! They did their best to dry everything out, the turns and track were ok, but the same could not be said for the gate. A lot of riders were having wheel spin, but they got the mains done and everyone was happy just to have it over and done with.

Team wise, we pretty good with a couple hick-ups... Andres Jimenez had his hands full with 25 other pros (one of the biggest classes of the weekend). Hemi wasn’t able to make the main either day, but he was in decent spirits none the less. He knows that this was not a normal weekend and he’ll be back with a vengence at the next one. Raul Gomez used his HTA (Home Track Advantage) to take home wins in both classes on Saturday. Sunday he raced cruiser, scoring the win, and 30 and Over Open where he finished fourth. Petey Peters had a good day going on Saturday taking a third in 16-29 Open, but then ran into some problems (literally) when a couple guys fell at the end of the first straight and Petey got collected up into them. Sunday Petey would cruise the main in Open to save it for Class. That strategy paid off, cause he finished first place. Bryan Kipp looked super strong in Saturdays Open main were he finished 2nd, then hit the gate in Class and finished 7th. Sunday proved to be the better day for Kipper as he took 5th in Open (Again, choosing to save it for Class) and scoring 2nd in 16 Expert. Tucker Rice was his usual smooth self this weekend. Tuck would go 4 for 4, winning Class and Cruiser both days. Jeff DeVido scored himself a 7th place finish in 40-44 Cruiser on Saturday, but wasn’t able to get himself into the main on Sunday. Dean DeVido finished 5th the first day in 13 Expert, but didn’t qualify for Sundays main event. Perry DeVido scored a 6th on Saturday, and a 3rd on Sunday in 12 Novice. Amanda Geving was in Chula Vista, CA at a USAC Elite Women’s Training Camp, so she wasn’t able to race this round and Cory Watts is still on the IR list. Hopefully he will be back in time for the NBL Spring Break Nationals.

As for Team competition, we didn’t have a good day on Saturday. Raul and Tucker came through, but PTP and Kipper screwed the pooch! LOL! It’s ok, everyone got it together for Sunday. With 3 firsts and a deuce we were able to take home the win. I was hoping to get two “keeper” scores out of the weekend, but one will have to do. Hopefully we can get a couple in Highlands in a couple months...

Well, there are no races on the schedule for us for the month of March, but April proves to be a busy month with the NBL’s Easter and Gator Nationals, as well as, the ABA’s Dixieland National with a SSA Qualifier chaser in Highlands at the end of the month. Talk about hectic... Good thing we have a “Calm before the “Storm” comes in! I’m sure we will see you at one of those events. Well, we better! LOL! Good luck and keep the rubber side down!

As always, we would like to thanks our cosponsors: Odyssey (, Profile Racing (, Powerbar (, DNA Energy Drink (, THE (, Intense Tyres (, Sun Rims (, ODI Grips (, VANS Shoes (, Tangent Plates ( and The Hot Shoppe (

Other states and territories will conduct their sign on days from the middle to the end of March.

USA Cycling unveils new BMX Women’s Development Program


Colorado Springs, Colo. (March 1, 2010) -- USA Cycling is pleased to announce a new BMX Women’s Development Program, as well as the hiring of Dwight Training, Pty Ltd., which is led by Sean Dwight, to oversee the new program’s coaching activities.

The United States has a large, undeveloped pool of 14 to 18-year-old female riders who are internationally capable. The objective of the BMX Women’s Development Program is to move athletes from grassroots racing onto international podiums, thus maximizing the United States’ UCI Nations Ranking and gaining the maximum start spots for American women at the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Dwight will utilize the Supercross track at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. to prepare the next crop of female BMX racers for medal-winning performances in London in 2012, and beyond.

“There are a lot of young ladies here who haven’t had a lot of training,” Dwight said based on his observations from camp being held now in Chula Vista. “This program is about teaching them how to live like athletes and mature down that pathway. I’m going to push them toward every resource available here at the Olympic Training Center. So far, I’m really impressed with their skill sets. These girls have no fear.” 

Dwight has coached top-level athletes like three-time world champ Kyle Bennett and Australian star Khalen Young. A former professional racer himself, Dwight has previously served as National Coach for BMX Australia and BMX High Performance Coach for Cycling Australia.

“Sean’s BMX coaching experience and his attention to detail is certain to be a valued asset to our USA Cycling BMX programming,” explained USA Cycling’s BMX Program Director, Mike King. “He’s worked with many former BMX World Champions and we feel his presence will fill a void that is needed for Women’s BMX development.”

Through the BMX Women’s Development program, USA Cycling plans to provide high performance training with the U.S. Olympic Committee’s Sports Performance Team while instructing the next generation of female racers to adapt and master the high-flying Supercross style track. The program will provide two women with U.S. OIympic Training Center resident athlete programming, and will select, nominate and manage various athletes for U.S. National team trips to major international competitions like the UCI Supercross World Cups, World Championships, and a handful of international class 3-5 events.

The first trip for development program athletes will be to the opening round of the UCI Supercross World Cup in Madrid, March 22-27, and then on to the European International Class 4 and 5 events in Besancon, France, March 28 – April 4. USA Cycling will name the U.S. National Team for this trip on March 4.

Music City BMX Needs Your Help!


Music City BMX riders and parents' group in conjunction with the NBL will be taking donations this weekend at Morristown for Neva Gronowski, a Music City BMX mom who was recently diagnosed with ALS. The Gronowski’s were instrumental in the growth of Music City BMX and how great the BMX program is today.

Neva is a 43-year-old Smyrna, TN, resident who has been diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). ALS is a disorder of the motor neurons, nerve cells in the brain and spine that control voluntary muscles. For people with ALS these nerve cells gradually die and the muscles they control can no longer function leading to total paralysis and eventually death. There is no known cure for ALS at this time and life expectancy is 2-5 years.

The Gronowski’s are a great BMX family and have always been willing to help Music City and any BMX family they have ever met. As we all know, BMX is the true family sport and we all stand together as a whole.

The goal is to try and get everyone at Morristown to donate 1 dollar, 4 quarters, 10 dimes, 20 nickels or a 100 pennies. As we all know a dollar doesn’t buy much these days, but I promise if you are willing to give a dollar for this cause we will show you how far it will go to help a great family in need.  100% of all monies raised will be donated to the Gronowski family.

The goal is to raise the financial resources for our version of Extreme Make Over BMX style. We are trying to help renovate their house for a downstairs bedroom and bathroom because Neva is no longer able to climb stairs. We are also hoping to help with getting the van equipped with a wheel chair lift and wheel chair ramps into the house.

If you can’t attend Morristown this weekend but would still like to give, donations will be accepted and appreciated. You can contact Bobby @ (615) 267-0742 or email
