USA BMX Partners with ICEdot to Provide Protection to USA BMX Members

Sanctioning body of Bicycle Motocross takes extra step to protect athletes 

TULSA, OK., September X, 2012- ICEdot, an emergency identification and notification service, announces its partnership with USA BMX  to provide ICEdot membership and service as part of the USA BMX race license for all members starting in 2013. USA BMX represents the first sanctioning body to provide such a high level safety service for all of their athletes.  

USA BMX is the sanctioning body for the sport of bicycle motocross, the high-speed Olympic sport, in the United States. Racers compete over courses filled with a variety of jumps, bumps and turns. Due to the nature of all sports, there is risk of injury and in an effort to aid racers in an emergency, USA BMX has partnered with ICEdot. 

"With 70,000 racers of all ages, USA BMX recognizes the importance of providing quick, accurate information and notification of emergency contacts,” said Bernard Anderson, USA BMX CEO. “BMX is a family and we're happy to provide ICEdot protection on and off the track. Providing the service is one more thing we can do to make BMX a safer sport and encourage parents to bring their kids out to the track." 

All USA BMX members will receive ICEdot helmet stickers with a unique pin number allowing race organizers to quickly access a racer’s emergency information in case of an emergency. The ICEdot service protects race participants by syncing their name, emergency contact and any health information they want communicated in an emergency with an individual pin number located on a sticker that is placed on the racer’s helmet. In case of an emergency, first responders on the scene text the number located on the racer’s helmet to instantly receive their emergency profile.   

“This partnership demonstrates the continued need for services that protect athletes as they push themselves to the limits of achievement within their sport,” said Chris Zenthoefer, ICEdot CEO.  “USA BMX is committed to providing every protection possible to ensure that all racers can compete as safely as possible.”  

ICEdot is an emergency identification and notification service that provides critical emergency contact and health information at the scene of an accident. The service utilizes the Internet, mobile applications and SMS technology to quickly identify a patient, relay important medical information, provide and notify emergency contacts in the case of any accident or medical incident.       

All ICEdot press inquiries can be directed to Emily Verna at 215.825.9634 or  ICEdot can also be found online at or, on Facebook at and on Twitter at

BMX Mania To Cover Finals Of The 2012 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup Series
Graphic by Johnson BMX Products!

BMX Mania Coverage Begins Friday Morning!

Official UCI News Release - 12 September 2012 – A large number of the world’s top BMX racers will gather in Abbotsford, BC Canada on 14 and 15 September for the first UCI BMX Supercross World Cup event ever held in Canada, the last event of this year’s Supercross World cup series and the first one leading up to Rio 2016, that only starts in 1422 days.

See preview video

The two-day event features the Time Trials and seeding runs on Friday the 14th and on Saturday 15th riders and fans will enjoy the action-packed BMX motos. This is the first UCI BMX Supercross World Cup ever held at the newly improved track at the Abbotsford BMX Club in Abbotsford, British Colombia. With significant improvements made by Elite Trax over the summer on the track, riders will face the challenging Supercross track that includes the Supercross start ramp. It is already destined to become a favorite SX track on the circuit.

45 Men and 17 women have signed up for the two-day event. Most of the entries are from the Northern America’s but also a large number of regular champions from around the globe will make their appearance. Missing are the Columbians and Latvians who must be enjoying some down time after the Olympics.

Elite men
Local favorite Tory Nyhaug (CAN) has something to prove on his home track. Nyhaug came back from a major surgery that saw his spleen removed a few months ago. He competed at the Olympics far from being in top form and he must now be looking for another podium result after winning the Canadian Nationals on this track recently.

Sam Willoughby (AUS) will also be keen on winning another World Cup event. Willoughby must be confident with winning the silver Olympic medal. American Connor Fields (USA), who leads the 2012 Supercross ranking is also one of the favorites for a podium place. Top 2012 rider Fields also must have something to prove after not ending up on the podium during this year’s Olympics. Also keep an eye out for Twan Van Gendt (NED), 8th in the Supercross ranking. Van Gendt is definitely on a roll with his strong performance at the Olympics and his recent win at the Red Bull R.Evolution event.

Elite Women
Caroline Buchanan (AUS) is the obvious favorite for the overall 2012 Supercross title. Buchanan scored an impressive 2-1-2 this year so far and she must be keen to improve her Olympic performance. Magalie Pottier (FRA) is the current World Champ. She is trailing Buchanan with 100 points. She has a theoretical chance of grabbing the overall win. Experts expect Pottier to be on the podium.

Also look out for Felicia Stancil (USA), the current Junior World Champion. Considered by many to be the "next big thing" in women's BMX racing. Felicia has yet to show her potential on the BMX World Cup tour, but this could be her break through. Also expect Olympic Bronze medalist Laura Smulders (NED) to put in a strong performance. She must have had a huge confidence boost with her bronze medal at the Olympics. And last but not least, look out for Shanaze Reade is making a rare appearance on the World Cup again and for sure are looking to show everybody she is still a force to reckon with.

Practice, time trials and main event will all be webcasted live on

UCI BMX Supercross World Cup Series

Morphine Industries Hits the Bluegrass State for the Eastern Divisional Championships
Photos courtesy of McMean BMX

Hurricane in Kentucky? Well, the threat of Isaac headed up north from New Orleans to KY wasn’t going to scare away a gathering at Tom Sawyer State Park. A group of the Morphine Crew saddled up and headed to KY for a little racing and maybe alittle muddin’.

This race marked the first east / west coast divisional championship races for the ABA since the merger. A sister race would be going off at the same time in Reno. Racing was to start Friday making it a three day national.

19-27X – Brandon McCoy, Friday started out with a 46 rider class and staying close to the same rider count through Sunday. Evidently the lure of riding Bluegrass BMX was too much as a draw top riders from all corners of the country filled the class. Brandon made his mark on all three days as he charged his motos and took a spot at the main gate on all three days.

Friday = 6th place Saturday = 7th place Sunday = 8th place


17-18X – Ryan DeRoche, stepped up for the weekend and raced both JR. Men and Class. Ryan has been making a name for himself this year with many podium finished in JR. men and this weekend would prove to continue that streak. As with 19-27X the east coast competition brought many top riders from the west to see how they match up. Ryan battled his way through many motos, Qtrs, and semis to make the main gate all weekend.

JR. Men: Friday = 7 Sunday = 3

Class: Friday = 6 Sunday = 8


16X – Jared Johnson, started the weekend off the same as his teammates in a stack class with top riders coming from all over to country. With Rider count at 29 on Friday, “Doc” made quick business of his motos and then continued to transferred on to the main. In True “Doc” fashion, he continued the same result for Saturday and Sunday with some of the best racing of the weekend.

Friday = 6th place Saturday = 5th place Sunday = 8th place

13X – Richie Dey, coming off a lights out crash a month ago at Ohio Dreams that resulted in a concussion and a broken hand, could not sit on the sidelines for the weekend.

Unfortunately recouping from the crash with time off the track, Richie was far from 100% but still showed his unmatched determination and go-for-it attitude.

Richie rolled through motos but came up short in Semis for the three days. He will be back. Beware.

Isaac did make things interesting on Sunday turning the main event racing into mudding. Be sure to check out some of the videos going around, it’s worth a few laughs and grins.

Next stop for the Morphine Crew is SC in a few weeks. Be sure to come check out the racing and the crew.

Chase BMX USA BMX Bluegrass National Race & Video Report

This past weekend, USA BMX, held the Bluegrass Nationals / Eastern Regional Championships at one of the best BMX tracks in the USA, the Louisville EP Tom Sayer Park. Home to the NBL Grand Nationals for many years, the history and great racing at this track alone had many excited to see USA BMX come here for the first time as a true USA BMX event.

Coming off the Olympics, this was the first National event in the United States and to have the Gold & Silver Medalist, as well as Connor, a main event finalist, there was a lot of media attention to the USA BMX event. There was a press conference on the opening day, to also announce that there will be an indoor national event in Louisville early in the 2013 season.

This event was a special 3 day event for the riders and meant the 27 Elite Pro riders in attendance would race it out 3 time for the fans and BMX Glory. Connor started things off with a stacked moto on day 1 and set the tone of his weekend, as he holeshotted and won the lap. Easily making his way into the main event on Day 1, Connor would battle with Sam Willoughby in the final, and finish 2nd, just behind Sam, in a TIGHT race. Day 2, it was once again a main event where Connor would meet up with Sam and both go for the win. This time, throw in Donny Robinson between the two riders and Connor would finish up 3rd for the day.

On Day 3, the Pros once again took to the track and dazzled the fans with speed and power. Sam and Connor were going for the win again, but this time, the Olympic Gold Medalist, Maris Strombergs was in the main event and showed the fans how fast he is, with a holeshot and win. Connor would come in 3rd, wrapping up a great weekend for him, as well as gaining a lot of points for the year end USA BMX Pro title chase.

It was a great USA BMX event and the fans were able to see the Pros and well as the Amateur riders showcase their skills and put on a great show. Next up for Connor will be the final round of the 2012 UCI BMX Supercross series in Abbotsford, Canada on September 15. You will be able to watch it live, as Connor races for the overall title, where he currently leads the title chase. You can view the race action at
