NEW D-SPYDER SADDLES
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 O₂
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
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
D-Spyder Original MSRP US$55.00
course the best part of all is that both versions are
available now at your local independent bike retailer. For

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

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
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
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

ABA Winter Nationals
Risen BMX factory team
past weekend the Risen BMX Factory riders rolled into
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
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
just in from Greg Hill Products, on March
5th two new GHP factory riders were spotted at the ABA
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 wettest ever. GHP would like to thank all their

55 BROOKES BROTHERS
win PRESTON SPORTS AWARDS
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
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
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,

UCI BMX Supercross World
Cup arrives at the Palacio de Deportes of Madrid
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
Madrid will be the first venue of
the 2010 BMX Supercross World Cup. There are four
sites around the world for the
2010 season, including, Copenhagen (Denmark), Chula Vista in

intrepid riders will compete furiously in UCI Supercross
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

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 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.”
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.

MCS Factory Team Race Report - SSA Qualifier Rounds 5 & 6
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 www.flbmx.com. 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!

USA Cycling unveils new
BMX Women’s Development Program
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
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!
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
