Join Alise Post, And "Accept The Challenge"

I urge you to "Accept the Challenge" and support the MS Society by either making a donation or attending the 1st Annual BMX "MS Race For the Cure" this Monday, Memorial Day, 5/31 beginning at 12:00-NOON at Pineview Park BMX in St. Cloud. This 1st ever event of it's kind, will hosted by Alise, Mark and myself along with all the great volunteers of Pineview Park BMX.

Alise will fly home specifically to host this event after a weekend of national racing to enjoy some time with the Stark-Haws family and her Pineview Park BMX family to help raise as much money possible to help find a cure for MS and support Colleen, who has a daily fight with a very progressive form of MS. She went from walking to her current orange and black "Tiger Pride" wheelchair within a year.

Both Alise and the Stark-Haws family, the inspiration behind this important event, will be at Pineview Park BMX on Memorial Day!

All proceeds from registration, concessions, donations and an awesome raffle with the coolest prizes will benefit the MS Society.

Highlights of the incredible raffle include BMX jerseys, goggles, plates, gear and memorabilia from 2008 Olympians Gold medalist Maris Strombergs, Bronze medalist Donny Robinson and finalist Jared Graves and 2012 Olympic Hopefuls including Alise, Sam Willoughby, Denzel Stein, Kyle Bennett, Khalen Young, Corben Sharrah and many more!

ALL of Alise's sponsors are on board donating a wide variety of items including:

Redline Bicycles Complete BMX bike, hats, t-shirts
JBL/Harman Ipod Dock, ear buds, computer speakers Hats, t-shirts, sunglasses
Fly Racing Fly clock
Tangent T-shirts
Oakley Goggles

There will be Noodles & Co gift cards, Great Clips haircuts, a die cast semi truck from Anderson Trucking and more!

The BMX Race For the Cure event is going to be awesome! Be there and support the Colleen and The MS Society.

In case you don't know, Colleen and Joel Stark-Haws were 2 of Alise's phenomenal gymnastics coaches at Tech High School. They helped lead Alise and the Tech team to 4 consecutive State 2nd Place Team finishes and Alise to 3 individual State Titles as well.

The Stark-Haws family also became avid BMX racers and dedicated volunteers at Pineview Park BMX for many years, primarily running concessions along with positively mentoring new racers and conducting community ed classes.

Colleen and Joel lead by example and naturally command respect by the way they live. They walk the walk, expecting you rise to every challenge before you. Needless to say, they always inspire and challenge you to be the best you can be, not only as an athlete, but more importantly as a person. Less than a 100% effort is never an option and their standards are extremely high.

Colleen never complains about her difficult fight with MS, but she expects you to give your best without complaint, in return.  As EVERYONE who has ever met her and her family would say, "They are genuinely amazing and inspiring people".

It's time for Alise, our family and the Pineview Park BMX family to honor Colleen's fight and give back by generously raising funds for the MS Society and help find a cure for MS.

Please "Accept The Challenge" and participate in the "1st Annual BMX-MS Race For the Cure" on Monday, 5/31/10 at Pineview Park BMX in St. Cloud, MN or if you cannot make it to this fantastic event, you may make a generous donation by mailing a check or money order to:

Cyclecraft Launches In Australia

Melbourne, Australia- CycleCraft used the 2010 National Championships held in Shepperton Victoria as the company’s Australian debut.  CycleCraft Australia Team Manager and rider Dean Conlin walked away with podium finishes on both his 20” and cruiser.   Conlin commented that the weeklong event took place on “probably one of the best tracks ever constructed for an Australian National Championship”.  

Conlin, signing with CycleCraft a few months ago, worked his way through the 25 other riders in the 35-39 Boys 20” class to earn the National Number One. The cruiser class was Dean’s next target for a podium finish; unfortunately things did not quite work out as anticipated.  After a disappointing gate start in the main, Dean entered the first corner snowball on the field.  However, determined to try and make good of the situation, he moved his CycleCraft cruiser through the field of riders, ending up with a strong 3rd place finish, making him two for two on the podium. 

The Nationals were a great success for Dean and CycleCraft Australia, with a lot of interest shown throughout the weekend about the CycleCraft name and product. With the success achieved, Dean will now start to shape a factory and co-factory team ready for the Queensland state titles in September. 

The CycleCraft Factory Team is supported by a great group of co-sponsors, including: Profile Racing (, No Fear (, MCS Bicycles (, Odyssey BMX (, CyberHorse Sportswear (, 24/Seven Graphics (, HRP Designs (, Kovachi Wheels (, Carrollwood Bicycle Emporium (

GAHANNA, OH (May 11, 2010) -- The NBL Freedom Nationals, held at NOVA BMX in Woodbridge, Virginia, May 8-9, drew one of the largest crowds for any National race this year.

Morphine Industries’ Wraps up Florida State Series with a few Uno's

Florida State Championship, what else needs to be said.  It is no doubt the premier state series with top national caliber riders as proven year after year at the President’s Cup.  The race pulled just under 180 motos and did not disappoint in the excitement category.  We had the added bonus this year of bringing the racing to the world.  Hopefully you had a chance to watch.

Morphine Industries showed up to the Championships with 3 riders in tow to do some damage on the Podium. 

17/18X - Talbott Cross spent most of the season recouping from a wrist injury tore up the track with a great effort narrowly missing the main.  He rounded the season up with an overall 11th place spot in a hotly contested class.


13X - Noah Reeves went into the final race battling for the top spot and a repeat on the #1 plate.  He held nothing back as he took the top spot on the podium at the race.  However, he ended up short just out of the top spot points wise to retain the #1 plate.

11x - Richie Dey went into the state race at the top of  both the 11X class and the 11-12 Cruiser class.  In 11x, there was no stopping the air dog. Richie tore up the class to take the Main win and clinch the #1 plate.

In cruiser, it came down to the main event with a battle between Richie and Tucker Rice.  Richie gave it all he had and took second in the main.  He was narrowly knocked out the top plate taking the #2 plate.

Morphine Industries had a great Florida State Series and want to thank its Florida factory team riders, factory team sponsors and the SSA for another great series.

With the Florida State series in the books, the Morphine Industries crew will turn its attention to the National series in both NBL and ABA.  In the next few weeks will be heading up north and west to bring our circus elsewhere.  Next stops are Lexington, SC, Rockford, IL and Nashville, TN.

You won’t want to miss Nashville as it will be the return of AA PRO Mike Kapes wearing the Black, Pink and White.  See you there.

Morphine Industries laying it down - Baby! - ABA Dixieland Nationals


THE ABA DIXIELAND NATIONALS, what comes to mind when you hear that? RAIN, rain, and more rain. But for the first time in about 8 years we had absolutely perfect weather, sun shining and highs in the 70's, we couldn't of asked for anything more.

So with the weather on our side finally, and the track being better than it ever has been in the history of Powder Springs BMX we knew this weekend was gonna be a good one.

Morphine Industries hit the Dixieland Nationals with only 3 riders, while the rest of the team was in Florida and Cali taking the weekend off from a gnarly spring racing schedule, DB 100, OD, and J-Rev took it to the mean streets, the Burbs of Atlanta, to handle business.



 A PRO – Jason LaRev  made the 30 minute journey to the race track still a little sore from Saturday nights activities down in Tampa the previous weekend.  Jason didn't know if he was going to be able to race or not. But after taping up the hand, he handled business and got on top of the box with a 1st place finish in A Pro Saturday. Sunday he hoped to follow it up with another Victory, but a solid Bonk down the first straight kept him off the box with a 4th place finish.

36-40X - Doran Bradshaw had a killer weekend of racing by getting two 3rd place finishes in one of the hardest classes of the weekend 36-40 cruiser. Then again pulling a 4th place finish Saturday in the super stacked 36-40X.  Unfortunately Sunday in 36-40X he wanted to get his freestyle on down the rhythm section by doing a Front Flip mid race, it didn't turn out as planned, and ended up with the snowman, 8th place.



 19-27X -  Olijuwon Davis  made the long trek down from Chicago Il. to show some of these east coast boys what Mid West pull is all about. And in typical OD fashion he didn't disappoint. OD horsed the comp on his Haro race LT, and rode across the finish line victorious both days in 19-27x, bumping him up a few more spots in the 19-27x NAG standings.  If you haven’t seen OD in action get to a track and check it out.

Be sure to check the Morphine Crew out at  up coming races in Sebring, FL -  Dothan, AL - Woodbridge VA, Cape Coral, FL - Lexington SC.

Gahanna, OH. (May 3, 2010) – The NBL will be offering free new and renewal memberships to all military veterans . To receive the free membership, veterans need only complete a membership application along with any proof of veteran status at the NBL trailer on race day or anytime at one of the NBL local tracks.

This is more than a token of appreciation, as we sincerely hope that these brave men and women will become a part of the NBL family- it’s people like them that make us who we are.”

All military veterans, regardless of their branch of service, are eligible to participate in this new program. The new program will take effect beginning the weekend of the Freedom Nationals and will remain in effect from that point forward.

Morphine Industries, Damian Cherepko - OTC and Fresno Report


Well…….the trip started out with me heading to Chula Vista and the OTC for the Jr. Devo. camp for a week of training.  After OTC, I headed back up to San Diego to get ready for the NBL All American National in Fresno. When I got there on Friday, I looked at the track and was pretty stoked to shred it. When practice came around, I felt on point with my riding and was ready to race that weekend.



That next morning I got to the track and was ready to race.  When I checked my motos I was pretty stoked to see that Blake Paulson was in on the gate with me. The first moto I felt really good on my bike and ended up winning. Then came the second round and Blake and I into the first corner and I ended up getting stuck to the outside.  I went to pass in the second turn and ended up falling on my elbow and bruising it…I was not stoked for that at all. It was all good as I ended winning the third round and the main.


Sunday came around and repeated with winning the main again.  After the race, I headed out and shredded some trails with Bittner and the SE crew.


Hanging in Cali the rest of the week to hit up Bakersfield and do work in the ABA.


Be sure to check the Morphine Crew out at up coming races in Bakersfield, CA, - Sebring, FL -  Dothan, AL - Woodbridge VA, Cape Coral, FL - Lexington SC.

Morphine Industries heats it up at the ABA's Wiregrass Nationals

There are two things you can count on when you go to Dothan, awesome track and hot temperatures. Both proved to be accurate once again as a the Morphine Industries crew rolled into town. Well, not the whole was up to 2 guys to represent at this one since the Florida State Championships were held just a few hours away in Morphines own backyard. Alot of internet genius' have been trying to get down the the fact that there were only 92 motos at this race but they way we see it, is that there were almost 300 motos of BMX racing in the southeast last weekend! Not to bad if you ask us! Now, on to racing...

Jason LaRev, fresh off the plane from Denmark, decided to come to Dothan and display his skills. Jason put in some killer laps but he kept gettin' the squeeze in the mains and had to settle for 4th and 5th place. On a brighter note, JRev got shanked in Wendy's on the way home and provided everyone with a good laugh! If you think the tattoos on his arm are cute, you should see the one on his rear!

Doran Bradshaw was this weekends poster boy for and showed why by leading every lap in 36-40 cruiser from start to finish, putting two wins in the bag and getting a boost in NAG points.

Highlight of the weekend was the HRP/TwentyH cookout on Saturday after the race. Big Props to Stewart Harrison and all the other guys that made it happen. It was nice just hanging out with everyone, swapping stories and eating good food. The cookout and the legendary cross over first straight make this a must hit national next season.

Next few stops on the Morphine Industries summer tour are Lexington, Charlotte, Rockford and Nashville.

South Africa team named for UCI BMX World Champs

Pietermaritzburg - Sifiso Nhlapo heads up the South Africa team chosen to compete in the 2010 UCI BMX World Championships in late July, but the team is anything but a one-man squad and there is a sprinkling of other riders hoping to collect world titles in their age groups.

Nhlapo is without doubt the big name in the national squad and the country’s big hope to grab a gold medal in the blue ribbon Men’s Elite category.

Skizo, as he is known, proved in 2008 that he had what it takes to compete with the world’s best when he enjoyed a superb season, producing some stellar performances in Europe before grabbing the bronze medal at the World Championships and then seventh in the final at the Olympics when a crash robbed him of a medal chance.

While 2008 was the season of dreams for Nhlapo, 2009 was a nightmare when a horrific crash left him sidelined from the action and he is only returning to full time racing this year. At the most recent World Cup event in Copenhagen Skizo claimed a place in the semi-finals to prove that he preparations for World Championships are on course.

Backing Nhlapo from the South African team in the Elite category will be Dean Holdstuck, who was less than a second from qualifying after his time trials in Copenhagen, the US based Gavin Lubbe who was less than one tenth of a second from qualifying in the season’s opening World Cup event in Madrid, Kane Herbert and Jordan O’Keefe.

In the Junior Elite class Teagan O’Keefe is hoping for big things. The petite youngster is currently training in Switzerland and the tough six-hour-a-day schedule at paying dividends and she could be a dark horse for a gold medal in her category.

Other riders who are currently overseas to prepare for the World Champs include the Webster brothers Liam and Axel, who are both selected for the junior races. They left his week to compete in a couple of European national championship events and get in some training and experience against top international competition.

While Sifiso may be the standout performer for South Africa, the person in the South African team who probably stands out more than anybody else must be veteran Sharlene McGilvray. The Pietermaritzburg-based 51-year-old mother is currently ranked second in the 45-plus age group for women and wants revenge after being beaten in Australia in the World Championships last year.

“Australian Cheryl Poynton beat me last year in front of her home crowd so I want her to be here so I can try and get my revenge in front of my home crowd this year,” said Sharlene.

SA team for UCI BMX World Championships

Elite Men: Sifiso Nhlapo; Dean Holdstock; Gavin Lubbe; Kane Herbert; Jordan O’Keeffe.
Junior Elite: Teagan O’Keeffe; Christopher Austin.
Veterans 30 years and over: Sharlene McGilvray.
Senior 23-29 years: Jonnathan Chislett; Shane Coulthard.
Under 23 (16-23 years): Lloyd Dodd; Kyle Dodd; Wayne Gerber; Nzuzo Mngadi; Godfrey Buzibo.
Junior (10-15 years): Liam Webster; Axel Webster; Kayla Eggar; Dylan Eggar; Bryce Stiebel.

The UCI BMX World Championships takes place at the Royal Showgrounds in Pietermaritzburg from 29 July to 1 August. More information can be found at

UCI gives Pietermaritzburg thumbs up for BMX World Champs

UCI technical delegate Johan Lindstrom (left) is shown the plans for the UCI BMX World Champs at the Royal Showgrounds in Pietermaritzburg, S. Africa by LOC boss Alec Lenferna.

Pietermaritzburg - As the countdown to the 2010 UCI BMX World Championships in Pietermaritzburg ticked past 75 days this week, the international cycling federation gave the progress on the event at the Royal Showgrounds an unreserved thumbs up.

UCI technical delegate Johan Lindstrom jetted into the capital city this week for a final briefing ahead of the world championships, and after a grueling twenty four hours of meetings and inspections of the Royal Showgrounds venue and facilities he was positive that the event would be top class.

"It is a fantastic venue for a BMX worlds," said Lindstrom. "I know the hospitality will be great, and the big entry of riders from over 35 countries are really looking forward to coming to Pietermaritzburg for the worlds."

He added that the state-of-the-art track that will be constructed in the showgrounds arena will take the sport into a whole new era.

"It will be one of a kind," he enthused. "Never before have we built a course that will have two separate start ramps, and the track will be technically difficult and demanding.

The plans approved by the UCI feature an eight meter high (26 feet) start ramps for the Elite classes, and a smaller five meter (16 feet) start ramp alongside it for the Challenge classes.

"This track is going to be insane," bubbled Pietermaritzburg's master age group world number one Sharlene McGillvray. "It's going to be fast and technical, which is exactly what we need for a world champs event."

The sport of BMX is growing globally, helped by it's inclusion in the Olympic program at the Beijing games in 2008. "Since Beijing BMX has really taken off," said Lindstrom. "It used to be seen as a kind of underground sport, but now riders know that they can take it all the way to the highest sporting platform in the world." "That is particularly trying amongst the female riders, where the standard is really improving at a very fast pace," he added.

"In recent years the standard has also improved incredibly," Lindstrom added. "That's what make it a challenge for us to design a course for the world championships because the top riders are going faster and higher, but we also have to make sure that the course is fair for everyone."

The Royal Showgrounds venue has been warmly welcomed by the international federation as it has a large number of buildings available to provide each of the visiting national federation teams with comfortable, spacious facilities fore their workshops and team lounges.

The local organizing committee under Alec Lenferna presented it's plans to Lindstrom, who was excited to see the arrangements at an advanced stage or the event, which starts on Thursday 29 July and concludes on Sunday 1 August.

"This is going to be a great world championships and everyone is really excited to get here," Lindstrom concluded.

Last weekend Formula Europe¹s Edzus Treimanis was racing in Ventspils, Latvia.

The Track is really nice and even has a SX kinda jump over a turn on the first straight.

Weather conditions weren¹t great, but Racing was!

In Saturday¹s Pro Open Race, he was fastest in the Time Trial.

Top 16 riders qualified for the semi-final motos. Edzus won his semis and went on to holeshot in the main and lead from start to finish.

He was the strongest rider again on Sunday, taking the win in the first round of the Latvian National Series.

Formula Europe is supported by Formula Bicycles,, Shimano, Alienation, Tioga, BES&T, SixSixOne, Royal Racing and

Its raining Gold for HRVfitness at the 2010 Australian Titles

In the history of BMX there has never been a team like this; 4 X #1 Australian titles in 4 different classes. 

Olivier Hoarau started the week off on Thursday with the final round of the National Champbikx/ Probikx series. The big guys was looking strong as he led the field in the semi final, but put the bike down through the technical pro section and ended up breaking his wrist, putting him out for the weekend.

The next rider to step up to the plate was 10 year old Jaden Rice. Rice looked good in qualifying but when it came to the final the little guy put the peddle to the metal and stormed home to take the win. But he wasn’t done there; he then came back on Sunday to take the win in the 8-10 boys cruiser. Two classes, two wins.. Not a bad day at the office for Jaden.

Brandon Te Hiko was in devastating form all weekend and showed no signs of slowing down in the final. Brandon smashed the field from start to finish and came away with his first Australian Title.

HRV took up the challenge in the 30+ Masters class, with plenty of competition from former world champions this was going to be an action packed final. The gate dropped and HRV was spat out the back but managed to find some space down the first straight and slotted into third out of the first turn. Then with some crazy cornering he set up a run into the third straight and managed to take the lead as he headed into the final stretch. HRV took out his first Australian Title in 10 years. 

HRVfitness would like to thank all their supporters and sponsors. Intense BMX, Skin Industries, Strictly BMX, BMXPress magazine,, Altegra and Phire Bird

HRP designs Factory Racing Team Report

ABA Wiregrass Nationals, Dothan, Alabama

This track holds a special spot in the heart of the HRPdesigns owner and TM.  It is the track he helped build when he was 14 years old and spent most of his life racing on that beautiful red clay. 

Now to the race, HRPdesigns rolled in late Wednesday night to help out the locals on Thursday for the Pre-race practice and even put up a few banners with Bill Morris of the ABA for good measure.  The track was in perfect shape, butter smooth, and super fast.  However, it was hot on Thursday and Friday, lots of sun and highs in the 92 degree range, but the real heat was on the track.  As the riders started rolling in, you could tell this was going to be a fun weekend, lots of smiles from riders as they crossed the finish line and headed back to the gate for another lap. 

Injuries - Coming into this race HRPdesigns was a rider down when Garrett Shaw broke his arm in training just a couple of weeks back, he would not be the only rider we were down by weekends end.  In Friday practice William Hill took a nasty fall and ended leaving the track on the backboard in a neck collar.  He checked out just fine in the end, with his first concussion (welcome to the club), but no other major damage.  Also, Chris Kennedy, who has been getting over a back issue, pulls his calf in Friday practice.  And finally, another one of our new riders, Trevor Harrison, was riding with his Dad back home after the Sunday race when he took a digger and ended up cracking his arm above the wrist.  HRP wishes a speedy recovery to all four of its riders. 

The Cookout – Since this is essentially HRPdesigns home track, we have always tried to host a cookout on Saturday afternoon for anyone who wants to come and enjoy our brand of southern hospitality, this was probably the fourth cookout (almost annual) with the last one held in Dothan in 2008.  Most of the Black Crown team (keep your friends close and your competition closer, LOL) was there, Mike Carruth and his family, Dan, John, and Jim Reilly from the ABA, and many other were spotted enjoying the grub.  In the end, we served approximately 50+ people some tasty burgers, hotdogs, marinated shrimp, and sausage and chicken gumbo.  Seemed that everyone had a good time eating and talking BMX.  HRPdesigns would like to send a big thank you to Marcus Hill, Patrick Hancock, and our magnificent chef, Wayne Livaudais. 

The Results – if the math stays the same as called out at the track, the HRPdesigns squad ended up the weekend with two 4th place finishes.  It was nice to be in the money two days in a row.  The team riders did well and some did their personal best since joining the team. 

Luke Segal (28-35X) – had the best results, in a mad dash on Friday, he built his brand new Clayborn Pro XXL together for the first time in the parking lot, and promptly went out and WON both days, not bad. 

Ryan Livaudais (21-25 Cruiser, 19-27X) – On Cruiser Saturday, Ryan got a great start but left the door open in turn 1 and had to settle for 3rd, but Sunday Ryan rode to a strong 1st place on cruiser.   On his 20” Ryan made both mains this weekend, in the dreaded 19-27X class, taking 7th both days. 

Brandon Murphy (17-18X) – well it did not take him long to get over his retirement blues, after six months out of BMX and one national weekend under his belt, Brandon showed up Saturday morning ready to rock.  Which is exactly what he did, winning the main and returning to his old form on the top step of the podium.  Sunday was not quite as kind, but he still pulled a strong 2nd place podium spot. 

Kendra Stoddard (14 girl / Jr. Devo) – She worked hard this weekend running class and Devo, at a smaller moto count race that is tough for the girls because of the moto spacing.  Kendra kept it together for strong 2nd places finishes both days in Junior Development and two 3rd place finishes in 14 girls.  Four classes, four mains weekend, Congrats Girl! 

Trevor Harrison (9X & cruiser) – Had his best weekend since joining the team making all 4 mains he chased, highlighted by a podium 3rd place in cruiser on Sunday.  Two 4th places, one on each bike, and a 6th round out his racing, but wouldn’t you know it, he goes back home and breaks his arm Sunday night.  Talk about bad luck.  Heal up quick little man, we were proud to have you running the Black and Whites of HRPdesigns this past weekend. 

Taylor White (41+X) – Although Taylor would tell you different, he rode well and had two main finishes to show for it, pulling the 5th on day 1 and standing on the podium for the 3rd spot on day 2. 

Chris Kennedy (36-40X) – Chris was battling with his calf pull and only raced 20” this weekend, you could see he was in pain but did manage to pull a 4th in Saturday’s main. 

Stuart Harrison (36-40cr) – Stuart does not race often anymore, but decided to give it a go at least one day on his favorite track in the world, and through the grace of god and an unfortunate handlebar locking with a fellow rider at the line, did in fact make the main on Sunday, cruising home with a 4th place finish. 

Honorable Mention to Troy Rouzer’s 3rd place on Saturday.  With all the talk on the message boards about “what makes a national”, well any race that we get to hang out with Troy fits that description.  That dude is the salt of the earth.

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

Celly Smelly's Race Team Update!

Monster Army BMX Race Team

Report from ABA U.S. Nationals in

Bakersfield, California

Three of the Monster Army BMX Race Team made their way to Bakersfield, California for the American Bicycle Association’s U. S. Nationals.  Team Riders attending the event included Rusty Nesvig, Jordan Miranda, and Shay Glynn.

Saturday’s Main events started off with a battle between Rusty and Jordan in the USA Cycling Jr. Devo Series. Rusty would lead Jordan all the way around the track only to be passed at the line. Jordan wins, Rusty second in a classic race.

Shay Glynn was next up. Shay entered turn one in the lead pack, exiting the turn she tangled with another rider and ended up in a 3 rider pile up. As a result of the crash, this would end Shay’s weekend. Look for her to be back strong at the Spring Nationals in Albuquerque later this month.

In the 16 expert class it would be Rusty and Jordan racing down the first straight again. Unfortunately for Jordan, he would run into some trouble in the turn 1 and never come out. (Well eventually he did). Rusty would continue on to take the win.

Sunday’s Main events once again put Rusty and Jordan leaving everyone else behind and challenging each other for the win. The races were close with Rusty claiming to top podium spot in both USAC Jr. Devo and 16 expert. The title for this class won’t be decided till the Grand’s later this year.

Good luck to Monster Army Riders Brooke Crain and Nic Long competing in the UCI BMX Supercross Race in Copenhagen this weekend.

Sifiso Nhlapo to spearhead South African

challenge at UCI BMX World Champs

Pietermaritzburg - With just over 10 weeks to go, the countdown to the UCI BMX World Championships in Pietermaritzburg has begun and the top riders are working to strict training schedules to make sure they are peaking and ready to challenge for the year’s most important race.

The Elite and Junior men’s and women’s World Championship events takes place on the purpose-built track in the Royal Show Grounds on Saturday July 31, but practice for all riders starts on Tuesday July 27 with racing for all the other classes starting on Thursday July 29 and running through to Sunday August 1.

One man who will be desperate to win in Pietermaritzburg is sure to be Sifiso Nhlapo. The South African Olympic finalist suffered a frustrating year in 2009 after a massive crash while training halted his steady rise up through the international ranks.

Nhlapo, who finished third in the 2008 World Championships in
China and seventh at the Beijing Olympic Games, is back on the track and challenging the big guns. As well as being South Africa’s poster boy for BMX, he is also the host country’s big hope for glory at the Pietermaritzburg event so the SA BMX community were well pleased with the 23-year-old’s semi-final finish at the World Cup in Denmark earlier this month.

But Nhlapo will have to be at his very best to record a sentimental home victory. Although one of his biggest challengers, 2009 World Champion Donny Robinson is currently injured and it is not certain if he will be in Pietermaritzburg to defend his title, there are plenty of other riders who are building up to challenge for the world champion’s crown.

With two World Cup events completed so far this season, the rider who has pushed his name to the head of the list of riders to beat is reigning Olympic Champion, Latvian Maris Strombergs, who recently won the World Cup in Copenhagen, Denmark, and heads the 2010 World Cup standings.

The world’s top ranked rider is 19-year-old Sam Willoughby. He cruised to victory in the opening World Cup event in Madrid earlier this year and had it not been for a crash in the semi-finals, would surely have been in contention for a repeat victory in Copenhagen.

In the women’s category Frenchwomen Laëtitia le Corguillé has two World Cup victories in a row and is shaping up to be the women to beat

Intense/Phantom/On-Trac Wins Big In Bakersfield!

Intense Phantom-Ontrac rolled into windy Bakersfield last weekend for the ABA US Nationals. After all the rain early in the year it was nice to have an outdoor race that everyone could enjoy in the sun. The US nationals always draw some of the fastest riders from all over the country, intensifying the pressure for the title contenders. However, for the IPOT team it was business as usual, picking up two big team scores. On Saturday the team rode to a second place finish with a 212 score. Sunday the team also finished on the podium with a 192.

The little “monster” Maddy Martinez didn’t lose a lap all weekend as she won the 9-10 mixed open, 9 girls, and 10 & Under Girls Cruiser classes both days. Maddy didn’t have it easy though. Her teammate, friend, and competitor Sumi Yuki was challenging her all weekend. Sumi took home two 2nd place finishes in the 9 girls class along with a 2nd in the mixed open. These little girls are having an incredible season so far. Kristen Long had a rough weekend in the 13 girls class but proved to the boys that she’s no joke, taking home a 1st and 4th in the 13-14 mixed open class.

Whenever the team goes somewhere they make sure the “Sheriff” Wyatt Bell is always there. And it was a good thing as he destroyed the 7 expert class. Wyatt finished the weekend with a double in class and a 3rd and 4th in 7-8 open. Ethan “E-Dog” Wolthers was also in attendance this weekend and rode well in the 8 expert class. He took home a 3rd on Saturday and a 4th on Sunday. These little guys once again showed why they are always atop the NAG standings.

There were also a few veterans in the house this weekend. Mr. Consistent, Sean Gain, doubled in the 13-14 open and took home a 1st and 4th in the 14-expert class. Look for Sean to continue with these results the rest of the season. The “Razzleberry” was in attendance and as always didn’t disappoint. He says he has been adding some gym work into his training and it was apparent with his first straight pull. Rusty Nesvig took home two firsts in the 16-expert class and a 1st and 2nd in the stacked Jr. Development class. If this kid can get some good rider counts look for him to win the Amateur title. Another Amateur contender, Josh Study, came to Bakersfield hoping for a decent rider count. He got that, but, didn’t get his normal first place finishes. On Saturday he finished 1st in the open and 3rd in 19-27-expert. Sunday was a rough day with a 4th in open and a crash in class. Look for Josh to be atop the podium in Albuquerque.

Intense Phantom-Ontrac’s next stop will be the Spring Nationals in Albuquerque. Look for the team to regain dominance and pick up two 1st place finishes there.

The team's exceptional efforts couldn't be done without the constant and considerable support supplied by our great sponsors who include Intense BMX ( On-Trac Garage Doors (, SINZ Racing (, THE Products (www.the-, Intense Tire Systems (, Fly Racing (, Phantom BMX Products, FSA products (, and BMX Jerseys (

ONE/Kenda’s Aneta Hladikova from Czech Republic took an awesome 3rd place in the 2nd Supercross event this season.

And in the race day she proved it. An awesome 3rd place was the result, just behind French Olympic silver medallist Laëtitia le Corguillé and New Zealands World Champion Sarah Walker.


Aneta is the current number 2 in the Elite Women standings for the European Championship.

Big Month For Formula Europe!

Beginning of May, the Formula Europe Team travelled to Perugia (Italy) for Rounds 3&4 of the European Championships Series, except for Lucie Meerholz. She broke her collarbone during the second National Race in Heiloo. We wish her a speedy recovery and hope to see her back on her bike soon. At the Perugia race, the Formula Europe Team was racing their brand new Race Kit with a new jersey design and Royal SP247 Race Pants. The Perugia track was very technical, even a bit dangerous and causing a lot of casualties.

In Junior Men, Bastien Merle was putting in some good motos earning points for the ranking. He qualified easily for the main on Saturday in which he was in 4th position when he cased the first double of the Pro Section and lost his speed. He crossed the finish line in 7th place. On Sunday he looked like he was going to repeat his performance, but stranded in the semis. Bastien is in 10th place of the Junior Men Ranking after 4 rounds.

Sandra Aleksejeva, Rookie in Elite Women, had an impressive weekend. She managed to pass some really tough motos against some of the World's more experienced top riders. With some really nice moves in the semis on both days, she qualified for the main. On Saturday she had to settle for 7th place, but on Sunday, she passed several riders with some amazing turns putting her in 3rd position after turn number 3. She lost some track speed and was passed by 1 rider. Sandra managed to hang on till the finish giving her 4th place for the day.

In Elite Men, Kevin Sprengers and Edzus Treimanis were representing the Formula Colors. Kevin was looking good and finishing his motos out in front. He passed the 1/4th finals on Saturday in which he got in contact with another rider on the Pro Section and was pushed back and his racing day was over. He made it up on Sunday, fighting it all the way to the final. He was up in the mix in the main. He was in 4th position turning on the flat going into the Pro Section barely having enough speed to jump. He fought to hang into his spot but had to settle for 7th. Kevin is now in 12th place of the Elite Ranking.

Edzus Treimanis had a good weekend. He was one of the fastest guys on the track. With his gates improving, he was definitely 1 of the men to beat. Edzus qualified for the mains both days. Saturday he finished in 4th missing the podium by a few inches, Sunday he finished in close second. Edzus moves up to 3rd place in the Elite Men Ranking.

Next stop event for our Elite Riders was the UCI World Cup in Copenhagen the weekend after.

The Copenhagen BMX Venue was in perfect shape but the weather was a bit of a spoiler.

Sandra was looking good in practice but the side wind on the first double blew her of balance and, for her, the SX event was over before it began.

In Friday’s Time Trial, Kevin took 66th in his first run and in the second run he landed sideways on the big triple into the first turn and went down.

Edzus didn’t have a good first run and had to wait to qualify in the second run. He managed to finish with the top 64 and qualified for race day.

On Saturday the wind was a lot less of a factor and Edzus was ready for his race. He got drawn in a pretty stacked 1/8 final, but after some finishes in the top three he managed to get through to the 1/4 final. With the 7th gate pick there was no place for mistakes if he wanted to qualify to the semis. Things went his way and he took 4th place on the second straight and kept it safe to the finish. In the semi final, after a pretty bad gate Edzus got stuck in traffic in the first turn. In the rest of the track he managed to pass some riders and with a nice high-low in the last turn he passed last years SX overall winner Sam Willoughby to stand in 5th place, just 1 place away from a spot in the final.

Most important form him, he earned some points in the first race of the 2012 Olympic games qualification period.

The next upcoming race for our team is the European Championships Rounds in Weiterstadt, Germany.

BMX Mania Back Online!

"Hey...Where have you been?" For the last couple days we were off line, and are sorry for the break in the news. Sunday, we took a day off to visit friends in Sweden after the UCI Copenhagen Supercross race and then Monday was CHAOS! We got caught up in the whole Iceland Volcano thing with flights to and from the U.S. being delayed and it was at that magic moment that the BMX Mania Laptop decided to go on strike and we were out of commission until today. So there's the sad story, but we're getting rested up from all the trauma and are back online fighting to bring you good news from the BMX Racing World, so make sure to tune in for the fun and games! Ride Hard and Have Fun!

GT/SC Actionsports Team Wins Big At NBL Woodbridge

I wasn't sure if I was in Woodbridge VA or the windy city of Chicago.

The winds never let up all weekend with gusts reaching over 35 mph! The GT/SC Actionsports team reassembled after a long winter of sub inactivity. The team was led by Joey "Gunz" Albright (Masters) who doubled for the weekend and put on an exhibition of bike handling and power winning every moto of every race. Alaina Henderson (Elite Women) had a great weekend making podium both days and laying the power down for some exciting racing with Dominique Daniels.

Jeremy Thompson 35x/cr was unstoppable in class and cruiser all weekend taking a double/double and showing no signs of slowing down this season. Viny Maninno 19x had a stacked class this weekend and is without a doubt one of the most talented bike riders in his class making podium both days and was challenged by his teammates and friends to go out and pull his patented triple tail whip over the box jump. With 35mph winds he passed on the Dylan Perez 16x had his hands full all weekend with his class and managed a 5th on day#1 and on day#2 crashed hard going into the first turn and was boarded of the track. He's doing fine at home and he'll be back soon.

Nick Koehler 15x made his debut with the team and surprised everyone when he setup in the gate for his first moto wearing the blue and yellow GT jersey. Nick took a second on day#1 and then got it all straightened out for a win on day#2 welcome aboard Mr. Koehler! Coleman Habib 11x/cr was on fire putting on a clinic in class and took home a pair of perfects on 20" and podium on cruiser. Here is a rider you'll be hearing alot about for the years to come Gabe Hatem 9x this kid put on an ariel show in the middle of a windstorm that was blowing AA Pros of the track! Gabe can't weigh but 50 cents and was fearlessly boosting all the jumps on the track. He finished with two perfects for the weekend and had the crowd shaking their heads.

Felicia Stancil 14g made the trip down to Woodbridge VA and didn't disappoint anyone with a double double for the weekend. Another new rider on the team Joey Lynn Henderson 13g is keeping the Henderson name alive and well in BMX scoring two more perfects in her season and showing everyone that she will not be overshadowed by her older siblings. Welcome to the team JL now go do some sprints!

The GT/SC Actionsports team had a great weekend taking a second on day#1 with 87pts and bring home a win on day#2 with 89pts.

It took me a little time to clear my head after watching my son Dylan get air lifted to the hospital on Sunday with head injuries but according to the doctors he didn't have much upstairs to damage so he'll be off his bike for a couple of weeks. Thanks everyone for the calls and emails it really meant a lot to us to know your prayers and thoughts were with Dylan.

I would like to thank our great sponsors GT Bicycles, SC Actionsports, VANS, THE/Sinz, Profile Racing, Fly Racing, Johnson BMX number plates and our newest sponsors eFin Wear and Bus2designs who designed and wrapped our new trailer.

Thanks, Carlos Perez TM GT/SC Actionsports

The celebrating began inside the helmet as the tough little French Girl, Laëtitia le Corguillé took the big win at the Copenhagen Supercross World Cup this weekend. A big main event battle was set up between New Zealand's, reigning Elite Women's World Champ, Sarah Walker and Laëtitia when the " Ms. Always A Threat", Shanaze Reade unclipped in the first turn and could not clip back in before everyone was gone and she sadly gave up on the third straight. Another BIG win for Team France as LLC wins again.

Sarah Walker & Maris Strombergs Take Time Trial Wins in Copenhagen!

Complete UCI BMX SX Time Trial Results on BMX Race Report Page!

big, wet (it rained!) photo page to be added!

HOWDY, from Copenhagen!

OK, you guessed it! The above photo has nothing whatsoever to do with Sarah Walker or The Mighty Latvian taking the top spot at the UCI BMX Supercross Time Trials in Copenhagen. It's mostly because Barry Nobles always knows where the photographers are and what to do when a camera is pointed at him. Besides that, several folks will be stoked that the Alienation BMX logo is glaring out from underneath Barry's Fly Helmet while he styles his Clayborn bike over the second straight. How's that for Product Placement?!

Rain was the order of the day, with some pretty heavy duty cloudiness right over the Copenhagen Track. The UCI drove straight ahead and hoped for the best. And, things turned out pretty well. There was a period of time right at the beginning of "B" practice that the rain came down pretty hard, but the riders adjusted, the track held up VERY well and things moved right along.

Bo Jung Returns To BMX Women's Pro Racing!

Bo Jung (formerly Alice Jung) has just announced her return to BMX and will be riding, and representing Formula BMX.

1. What have you been doing for the last few years that has kept you away from BMX? ..... Bo-Well, I retired in 2005 because I wanted to go back and finish school.  I have almost all of my bachelor's degree in Kinesiology but I wanted to get into nursing school first.  It took me a few years to get into a RN program because everything is impacted and I had a couple prerequisites I needed to finish so right now I am in my second semester of the RN program at Los Angeles Harbor College. I have about a year left and then I will go back to finish my bachelors.

2. What made you decide to return at this point in time? ..... Bo-I never lost the love for racing.  I was very, very burned out when I left however but I knew that it was still in my heart.  I've tried other things--surfing, boxing, just working out--but nothing feels like when I'm riding my BMX bike and jumping big jumps lol. A couple months ago someone on my Facebook suggested I start racing...It planted a little seed...then a friend asked me to show him a YouTube video of BMX and when I showed him, it was pretty much over.  I was on the phone trying to get a bike the next day.  I'm looking forward to having some fun!

3. For all the new riders to the sport of BMX, can you give us a brief resume of your accomplishments in BMX before you took some time off? ..... I guess my biggest accomplishments were winning the National number one title in women's pro in 2001 and 2002.

4. You look like you are in pretty good shape, have you been working out, training, riding, and do you think you are ready? ..... Well, I enjoy exercise and sports regardless of BMX so I've never really stopped working out or staying active.  I haven't really lifted heavy or trained "BMX style" in a long time but I know it will all come back.  I haven't been riding at all--basically 5 years completely off a BMX bike so that's a bit strange but I'm not afraid really....I'm not sure what will happen but I am ready to have fun and ride again.

5. When will you be making your debut back to racing? ..... My first race back will be the ABA national in New Mexico at the end of May.

6. Will you be racing ABA, NBL, UCI? ..... I will be racing ABA to start and I hope to do UCI races as well.

7. What is your ultimate goal upon your return?..... My ultimate goal is always to have fun and enjoy myself.  In the past, I made the mistake of getting too serious about winning all the time and pressuring myself too much.  It made it very difficult to have fun and it showed in my results.  I plan on training and doing my best and just seeing what happens but regardless, I intend to have a good time.

8. You obviously have had a name change. Any particular reason for switching? ..... It's kind of a weird story...My legal name is Bohyung Jung (and yes, you do pronounce the 'h' LOL).  When my family moved to the US when I was a baby, my parents gave me an American name--Alice.  I always disliked my name but I didn't bother to change it.  About 2 years ago I decided to move to California and at some point during the move I lost my social security card.  When I went to get a new one the man at the social security office told me Alice was not a legal name and that I was not supposed to be using it as my legal name.  Since I always hated "Alice" being my name, I decided that I would return to Cali with a new name...well, an old name....Bohyung--Bo for short.  I prefer it over Alice but I know some people will call me, Alice, forever which is all right I suppose..LOL.

9Anything else you would like to add or anyone you would like to thank? ..... I would like to thank Bruce Mayer at Formula for giving me a spot on the team in my old age and for helping me get my bike together, my friend Carley Young and her brother, Bill, who sent me a bunch of parts for my birthday on April 23rd, Black Book Sessions (branch of Hybrid Apparel) for hooking me up with some cool clothes, my adopted dad, John, for supporting my decision to race, and all my friends who believe in me and have believed in me all of these years.  Of course, thanks to Jerry Landrum for the hook up with Bruce and this cool interview and for being one of the coolest BMX old dudes ever! LOL

Formula Says Goodbye to Shelby “The Rabbit” Stacy With Best Wishes

Well the time has come for Shelby to spread her wings. Shelby just had her 16th birthday and after 7 years of working with, and supporting, Shelby, we finally part ways for her to pursue the next level in BMX. Shelby was with me when I had ATI, she was with me when I started Action Sports Depot and later moved to the Formula team with me about 2 years ago. She has been an integral part of this team, and all the teams, and a leader and mentor to some of the younger riders coming up.

 Shelby has always had drive and determination to get better, faster, smoother, jump well and be the best she could in whatever class she was riding. She has been all over the world, competed against girls that were taller, stronger and older and she has always proven that she could compete at any level.

 I have watched Shelby grow from a little girl loving to ride, and hating to not be 1st, to a determined, young women, loving to ride, and still hating to not be 1st. This attitude got her to a point where about 6 months ago she put herself on a grueling training program which included weight training, cardio, proper diet, sprints, along with home study, to push herself to the next level.

 Shelby has become like another daughter to me and my family over the years and I have become part of her family as well, but, as I have told her and other members of our team, if they have the opportunity to grow and get further support in the sport, than I can provide, I will support their decision to move on.

 Shelby has always represented our team well giving us 110% every time she gets in the gate, and she has been a good ambassador to the sport for us as well. In early April, Shelby, along with twenty aspiring riders, ages 15 and 16, attended the third 2010 USA Cycling Junior Development Program (JDP) camp which was held at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. The goal of these JDP camps is to bridge the gap between traditional BMX racing and the Supercross style found at World Cups and the Olympic Games.

 It was at this camp that Shelby, along with 3 other riders, two of which are Jessie Day and Nick Kohler, were recruited to ride the new Speed frames and in turn receive support for the rest of 2010 for ABA, NBL and Supercross races.

 I, we, wish Shelby the best of luck in the future, she will always have a home at Formula, and she will be missed.

Preview Copenhagen UCI BMX Supercross World Cup
Aigle, Switzerland - May 4 2010 - On May 7 and May 8 2010 the world’s best BMX Supercross riders gather in Copenhagen Denmark during the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup presented by Swatch.

A record number of 180 riders from 22 countries have signed up. At stake are not only points for overall World Cup victory but also the first vital Olympic points leading up to London 2012. Next to that this Supercross World Cup is the last event of this type before the UCI BMX World Championships in Pietermaritzburg South Africa in July.

Please see a preview video on

Mens favourites
On Friday May 7 the event will start with the qualifying time trials followed by the finals on Saturday May 8. Among the male favourites are Maris Strombergs (LAT) the Olympic Champion of 2008, Sam Willoughby (AUS) number 1 on the world ranking and winner of the Madrid stop in March 2010 and Connor Fields (USA) winner of the 2009 Chula VIsta leg and runner up of the Madrid stop. Donny Robinson (USA), the current World Champion, is injured and will have to miss this stop of the UCI BMX Supercross as does last year's winner Ivo van der Putten (NED).

Winning Women

Shanaze Reade from Great Britain is one of the female favourites who can win the title for the third time in succession in Copenhagen. But Laëtitia le Corguillé (FRA) no. 1 on the world ranking list and Caroline Buchanan (AUS) are also among the favourites. 2009 World Champion Sarah Walker (NZL) is back from injury and it will be interesting to see weather Walker can challenge Reade and Le Corguillé in Copenhagen.

Olympic qualification
The newly revised qualification period for the 2012 BMX Olympics now runs only two years in advance of the Olympics. In other words the Copenhagen stop is the first UCI BMX Supercross World Cup where Olympic points can be gathered.

New BMX Supercross riders and results database
In our continuous desire to improve our service to the international media UCI BMX Supercross introduces a results and riders database service. Please see This website offers you information on all riders and recent results. Please feel free to have a look and give us your feedback.

Europe's best BMX Supercross track
Europe’ best BMX track is located in Copenhagen. The BMX track in Copenhagen has just been upgraded with a number of new, permanent facilities. For example two start ramps, one of five and one of eight metres, respectively. According to the International Cycling Federation, UCI, this upgrading makes the track the best in Europe.

(picture BMX action in Frejus France 2009, photo Getty Images)

“There’s no doubt that the Copenhagen BMX venue is the best BMX venue in Europe. With the investment of having two permanent start ramps, not only is it the most versatile BMX track, suited both for elite and youngsters, but it also showcases the future of BMX. This is what many tracks will look like 10 years from now!” says Johan Lindström, UCI BMX Sports Coordinator.

Sports Events Made in Denmark

The Copenhagen set up is impressive but the organisers also have the ambition to further develop the side-activities to the main event. Chief Executive Lars Lundov of Sport Event Denmark explains: “In Denmark we emphasize the re-use of experience gained at previous events to make future events even better. We call it 'Sport Events Made in Denmark.' " For example the local organisers offer fans a great variety of entertainment on the final day. The rock band KISS KISS KISS, a freestyle BMX-show, competitions for the audience, free 'try for yourself' BMX track for all kids and much more.
