2011 ABA Grands Jets To A record breaking Finish in Tulsa!

2011 ABA Grand Nationals/Tulsa, Oklahoma - With 3425 total riders at the 2011 ABA Grands, the last ever, "ABA Only" Grand Nationals was a ROARING success. As amateur racing wound down, Sunday evening, ABA Staff had seen 603 motos for the Grands alone, and counting Friday's, President's Cup/Race Of Champions race, they cranked out OVER 4000 motos in three days. AMAZING!

While the common theme was "Three Motos On The Track" at all times, it seemed that there was a moto starting, two 'motos in the middle' and one crossing the Finish Line many times. All this was done while maintaining and presenting one of the most exciting races anywhere to be seen.

Pro Championships.....

ELITE MEN ... How much more exciting could the AA Pro ABA National Championship end up? With Title Contender, Sam Willoughby, almost not making it out of qualifiers, only to squeak out a spot in the Main the tension was so thick you could cut it with a Ti Spoke.

For the Saturday night, Pro Spectacular, the ABA went with their patented Three Main Format, which makes for some REALLY great racing, but let's face it......Marc Willers is on a TEAR this year and he would NOT be denied!

With a BIG win in Main 1, a fourth coupled with a Sam Crash in Main 2 and a Final Main win, Willers capped off a TREMENDOUS season with an ABA National Pro Title and a big fat 'ol $15,000 payday from the ABA.

ELITE WOMEN - Dominique Daniels and Brooke Crain put on a BATTLE in the Girl Pro class. Battle? All out war might be a better description. When you compare the two ladies, it kind of doesn't add up. Dom is one of the most powerful riders ever to grace a Women's BMX race and Brooke just doesn't look, powerful, she just looks kind of........Little?

The little lady with the Insane Nickname sent a message on Friday night at the UCI points race when she passed 3D in the rhythm section to ignite the crowd with a thrilling win over Daniels who was a returning three time ABA Girl Pro National Champion. What would Saturday bring.

Saturday was a LONG day on the BMX track. With a new schedule planned by the ABA organizers, the pros showed up at noon instead of 'O Dark Thirty' like in the past, but the entire Pro Contest was planned for Saturday instead of being spread over two days as in the past. At the end of both Brooke & Dom's motos, both girls were still in the hunt and made it thru to the 3 main final.

Mains 1&2 were pretty much Biz as usual, with Haro's little lady challenging STRONG in the 2nd straight only to see 3D hold off the attack to take the win. Going in to the last final, there were still enough points to win the title, so a LOT was on the line. Dominique blasted out to another one of patented hole shots, setting up Brooke's patented Second Turn passing attempt and that's where it all went down.

Coming out of the 2nd turn, the combatants BANGED together and went down in a heap. Amanda Geving motored on thru to take the win while the two title hunters scrambled to get back on their bikes. The Diff? Brooke had to detangle her bars/brake cable while 3D clipped in quickly, got back on her bike and collected her fourth ABA Pro title! It's a good rivalry, shaping up for future ABA Nationals, with Brooke looking to take down the Champion. Ought to make for some GREAT BMXing.

Cyclecraft JAX BMX Race Report

Well, we want to thank Jax BMX for a great weekend. The CycleCraft Factory team turned in a #2 both days for Money Team Competition…not bad.

Kovachi Wheels Factory Team Ends an Era

ABA Grands Spectators to Witness Final Ride


Marietta, GA - It is with a heavy heart that we announce the end of the Kovachi Wheels Factory Team.


The 2011 ABA Grands will be the last official factory rider representation of Kovachi Wheels.


We make this announcement today to alert the BMX community at large of the availability of the Factory Riders for other team consideration.


All of the Kovachi Factory Team riders were selected for the same reason, their love for the sport of BMX and their ability to continuously strive to increase their skills while representing John Kovachi in the best manner possible.


If you personally know any of the factory riders you can attest to John’s uncanny ability to select riders that would always shine, no matter how they finished in a race, but by the way they stood out in the crowd without asking for the spotlight.


Some of the best riders in the nation rode for Kovachi Wheels at one time or another.


We have tried to assemble the complete team for the Grands and will be spending our last week together in the team area.


Please take a moment to stop by, shake a hand, give a hug, for they are John’s legacy and they are darn proud of it.

Morphine Industries’ BMC cleans up in Puerto Rico

There is nothing worse than someone hanging in Florida calling his boys up north in Ohio and rubbing it in that it is 90 degrees and they are training hard and hanging at the beach. After Disney, deciding that the racing and weather in Florida are too good to leave yet, Morphine Industries', 19-27X Brandon McCoy made the jump to Puerto Rico to continue his run at the title at the ABA Isla del Encanto national.

Brandon hit the track Friday for practice and loosen-up after the flight and long 3 hour drive from San Juan airport. Rumor has it that he had to sit by someone’s grandma holding her pet goat for the three hour ride.

The race proved to be small with less than 30 motos. However, 19-27X had some comp and BMC made quick work of it taking the top spot in the main event on Saturday. Sunday was groundhog day as Brandon dominated from start to finish with another earned top spot at the line.

The Morphine Crew will be in full force headed to Tulsa in a few weeks. With Most riders in top NAG positions, it will be a great weekend of bumping and banging and we hope you are there to be part of the fun.

Everyone knows the story of Stephen Murray and the heroic struggle he faces everyday.

The Stay Strong foundation approached us to do the rims for the charity, we were honored. We chose our most popular rims in the Runaway and Skylark making them in a stronger material for the SS editions. For every rim that is sold, Alienation will donate $5 to the foundation. Although this is a nice little chunk of change, I had the opportunity to do a little something extra in the form of a Benefit.

This will be an evening of dinner and drinks. Special guest Stephen Murray will be in attendance. We will have many things to raffle off including bike parts and gift certificates from world renown Tattoo artists!

The band Perro Bravo will be playing the event. This is going to be a great evening. If you are in the So. Cal area, please come out and show some support!

Approaching the end of year means one last party and what place better than Orlando, FL and the Disney Cup….and hey the Morphine Crew is always down with a party. We all headed to Orlando for a three day week end of fun, party, pranks and some racing. We knew it was going to be a weekend to remember when we rolled into the hotel to find the county jail complex next store.


With almost a complete rooster, we hit he track, rig and all for practice Friday morning. Track was dialed and the weather was epic and the crew was riding well.

AA PRO- Mike Kapes started Friday racing by lighting up the track with a great set of moto laps. That had him heading to the main for sure. However, a bump or two and he fell short but looked great to open the weekend.


Saturday and Sunday, Mike was all about ripping his motos. However, in the AA ranks there is no room for mistakes and lane choice matters. Mike found himself just shy both days of the main as he battled with the BMX best.


A PRO – Jason LaRev was all about getting back in the groove for the weekend. He pounded out some great moto laps to start the weekend but found himself short of the main on Friday.. Jason came back Saturday and Sunday showing some stylist hot laps moving forward out of motos. However, JRev found himself narrowly missing the main again on Saturday. Sunday was another story as JRev swagged his way to the main and round out the weekend with a 7th.


Vet Pro – Tim Dinger coming back after a blown knee was welcomed as he hit the track for the first big race back. Tim showed no loss in flash and his ability to woo the crowd as he rolled into the main event. Dinger found himself in the mix during the main but a bump and a grind found him throwing some style and rolling thru in 8th.


Saturday and Sunday found Dinger making his way through the ranks and landing himself in the main. Déjà vu was in play as he found himself repeating both days with a solid 7th at the white line. Dinger has vowed to keep training and be on point for some glory in Okie. We got to say thanks to Tim for dressing up the pit area with some hotness - his fiancé Kim. That girl can drink some sweet tea.

36-40X –Doran Bradshaw coming off a busted up rib cage found himself in the mix and feeling close to 100 percent. Racing 20” on Friday, Doran cruised through the class and planted his tire on the gate for the main. When the gate dropped, Doran immediately was in the mix and banging bars down the first straight with his bike to a solid 5th at the line.


Saturday, Doran switched over the cruiser and flowed with the same grace as he did on the 20”. Doran cruised to a 4th on his 20” bettering himself by a spot from Friday. Sunday he rolled back to the start on cruiser. Doran continued to better himself by taking 4th for the day. Great weekend for Doran as he gets back on point for killing it at the Grands.

15X – Jared “Doc” Johnson hit the track smoking as well on Friday. Jared raged thru class and hit the main in cruise control. With an epic pass in the last turn Jared took over the top spot and didn’t look back.


Saturday, Jared was determined to join Charlie with the repeat. He rolled thru tough motos and battled to the end of the main to settle for s deuce at the line. Sunday was another great day for Jared as he battled his way to the main with dominance in his motos. He again battled in the main but having a bobble, Jared recovered to take the 5th place finish at the line.


14X –Noah Reeves looked great in practice and hit the first moto in the battle for first but was side hooked by a rider and took a bad crash over the second jump down the first straight. With most of his skin left on the track, Noah tried to come back for his second moto but was unable to hold on to his bars with a badly hurt left hand. Noah was forced to watch from the sidelines for the rest of the weekend trying to put the moves on Dinger’s fiancé….you dawg..

12X – Richie Dey started the weekend as a crowd pleaser boosting the first straight. Friday, Richie horsed his way to the main with a solid 5 in a stacked class. Saturday, Richie continued to ride and air it out weaving his way to the main taking a spot one better than Friday. Sunday Richie, pounded down the straights leaving his mark on the track and taking a solid 6th at the line.


The weekend gave us a solid peak in the 2012 season as a team with our riding, our brotherhood and ….ooh the pranking. My jaw still hurts from getting slapped with Big Black. And Brandon will never look at tooth brushing the same. Got to start getting this stuff on film for sure.


The Crew is strapping it on and head to Tulsa in a few weeks. Be sure to keep your eye on the Pink, Black and White. We will be sure to banging for the tops spots.

Marc Willers To

Switch Paystubs

BMX Top Dawg, Marc Willers will get a new race jersey as he  joins former sponsor, Toby Henderson In New Sponsorship Effort.

The sponsorship chatter is HOT on the BMX internet and the big news of the week is Marc Willers, taking off from the VSI corporate structure and evidently signing on with former sponsor and VSI main man, Toby Henderson, who just this year sold his interest in all things VSI, (Intense, Speed, THE, and on and on.) and moved on to another rumored company that he was going to start.

Well, evidently, he's begun "starting" cuz he just signed one of the hottest rider in BMX Racing at any track in any country over any jump IN THE WORLD......New Zealand's, Marc Willers.

While it looks like Marc's "left", he hasn't completely. Evidently the deal for Willers' racing includes Prime Time / Name Brand sponsorship with Toby's new company, which is evidently nameless at this point, and a secondary sponsorship with Speed which will keep him on the hot Speed 20-mil frame and fork setup.

Here's the straight scoop from Mr. Speed, himself, Michael Gamstetter, the VSI/Speed BMX Sponsorship Guy, released to BMX Mania for you to chew on.

MG. We were hoping to keep this quiet until after Grands, but now that the cat is out of the bag, here are the basics of the deal:

It's true, Marc is with Toby Henderson's new company as his title sponsor. But Marc will be riding a Speed in 2012. Marc loves the Speed frame and the 20-mil set-up and asked to stay on our frame and the 20-mil Sinz forks.

There are still a lot of details to work out, but when you see Marc on the track at Reno, other than a different name on the center of his chest, he'll look much the same as he does now. He'll still be in the black and white of New Zealand; he'll still be on a custom-painted Speed and he'll still be riding Shimano gear. The big differences will be he'll ride for Toby's company and he'll be using Toby's new products as they become available.

We're looking forward to working with Marc and Toby going forward. It's an arrangement that benefits everyone involved.

In addition, we're pleased to announce that Kory Cook has agreed to a deal with VSI and will be Speed's newest pro. More on that to come.

MCS Bicycles is pleased to announce that we will be doing the clinic at the opening round of the USABMX/SSA State Series in Jacksonville, Florida. The clinic will be November 11, 2011. Registration will be from 2-3pm, with the clinic starting at 3pm and ending at 5pm. Instructors will be: Amanda Geving, Raul Gomez, Petey Peters, Santiago Marin and Eric Clark. The cost will be $25.00. Cost includes: Instruction, Sticker pack and a chance for a raffle prize!

On Saturday November 5th, 2011, Amanda Geving will be hosting an “All Girls Clinic” at Tampa BMX located at 17302 Dale Mabry Hwy North, Lutz, FL 33548.

The clinic cost will be #35.00. Registration is from 9:30-10am and the clinic from 10am-1pm.

Back in 2007 Eric "Big Daddy" Rupe was inducted into the European BMX Hall of Fame. 

This year Eric was awarded the “Lifetime Achievement Award” from that Hall of Fame. 

Gerrit Does, the president and founder of the European BMX Hall of Fame was on hand in Chula Vista, at the ABA U.S. Open Nationals to personally give Eric the award. 

Along side Eric was this year’s Hall of Fame inductee Greg Hill (past GT BMX Team Champion). 

Big Daddy was quoted as saying, “It’s an honor to have been inducted into the European BMX Hall of Fame, but now to also have been given their lifetime achievement award is really special." 

"I’m blessed to have had such an awesome BMX racing career, but even more importantly, to have touched the lives of so many BMX’ers the world over." 

"BMX is the greatest sport on earth and I’m proud to be part of it and to be forever remembered as part of its history”.
