30/06 Bioflex supplements gives DK Factory team a boost

DK BMX press release
The DK BMX Factory Team has announced Australian athletic supplement company Bioflex as its official provider of nutritional supplements and co-sponsor for the 2011/2012 BMX season.

Bioflex joins LooseKid Industries and Goodlife Healthclubs as co-sponsors of the DK team which includes riders such as former world number one Ronnie Dugdell, former Australian Junior Champion Matt Dunsworth and super fast young gun Blake Moore.

DK Factory Team Manager Corey Stafford said having Bioflex on board to offer expert advice on nutrition and supplements was a terrific addition to the team.

“Currently, the level of competition in Australian BMX is very high and being able to give our riders some extra tools in their preparation and recovery will be of great benefit at race time,” he said.

“In a sport where a last minute burst of speed can mean the difference between winning and losing, it’s good to know riders in the DK Factory Team will have something left in the tank.”

Bioflex Marketing Manager Aaron Ng said co-sponsoring the DK Factory Team was an ideal match for the company.

“Bioflex had been looking to break into action sports for some time and the DK Factory Team has a long record of success on and off the BMX track,” he said.

“The team has several top ranked riders and our goal is to help them stay at that elite level.”

Bioflex will provide its Biobulker protein and Biocharge endurance supplements and Recover X amino acid recovery formula to DK Factory Team riders.

Mr Stafford said more and more BMX riders were incorporating supplements into their training and recovery programs.

“Traditionally you think of bodybuilders and power lifters being the main sports for nutrition supplements but using them for action sports like BMX is a great way to increase performance,” he said.

29/06 Protect yourself

by Shane Jenkins
I have been racing BMX since 1981 and I have had my fair share of injuries. I have been taking extra precautions wearing elbow guards and kneeguards. It’s great to have your elbows and knees covered because about 50% of my injuries are in that area, but let’s face it, that’s not going to protect you from all impact.

There have been plenty of companies making body armour over the years which would work fine for most people. But I struggle with the balance of feeling protected and feeling restricted by the protection. I’m still yet to try one of the Leatt neck braces but it’s a good example. People I have spoken to that have worn them have had to adjust the way they ride because they can limit the range of movement in your neck.

A little while back I had heard that Troy Lee Designs were going to team up with Shock Doctor to make a range of protective clothes that are designed for comfort and unrestricted motion. Naturally it sparked my interest, because after 30 years anything that can keep you riding longer (hopefully for another 30+ years) is a great investment.

I had a little fall last night and it was just a reminder that I need to check out some padded shorts to wear under my pants (no not nappies) but something that can take some of the impact away from my body. I also need to protect a nagging wrist injury. It’s time to go shopping.

Why Troy Lee Designs? I have found few manufacturers that cater for the larger rider all the way down to the smallest of rider and have a separate range of male and female gear. So no matter what your size or build you should find something that will fit. Their products are comfortable, durable and look great. In a crash (yes another crash) I had earlier this month I destroyed a set of TLD gloves and Knee Guards however I was extremely happy to walk away with only bruising. I look back and wonder what would have happened if I was wearing a lesser product, I’m certain the paved corner could have caused whole lot more damage at the speed I was doing my penguin slide. And I doubt I would have got up to race the next moto let alone make the final.

29/06 French National BMX Team and Alienation BMX Join Forces!

Alienation BMX press release
It was announced recently by Alienation BMX that a two year sponsorship deal for 2011 & 2012 has been signed with the French BMX National Team for product support with the world’s best high performance rims from Alienation BMX.

The sponsorship deal was hammered out by French National Team Coach, Fabrice Vettoretti and Alienation BMX Sponsorship Coordinator, Jerry Landrum. According to Landrum, “Everyone here at Alienation BMX is VERY excited to be able to work with the awesome riders and World Class Coaching Staff of the French BMX National Team!”

“The French BMX Program has been at the “Elite Level” before any other national team in BMX, and we know that our product will be used at the height of BMX performance under the sterling leadership of Fabrice, his staff and of course, some of the best riders in the world.”

With the goal of being “The Fastest of the Fast”, Team France will be primarily using the Deviant/Insurgent rim combo. With the superlight Deviant on the front, weighing in at 305 grams and the 315 gram Insurgent on the rear, the Fast French will possess the lightest high performance BMX rim setup in the world.

When it comes to performance, the French Team will be contesting one of the toughest race schedules ever with a mixture of UCI BMX Supercross races, the UCI Worlds, the super tough Euro Rounds and the Coupe de France (the French National Series), the Alienation rims will be put to the test, leading all the way up to the 2012 London Olympic Games where the French Team will endeavor to place three Elite Men and Two Elite Women in competition for the coveted Olympic Medals.

The team has taken a BIG step in that direction with Joris Daudet ranking first in the UCI BMX SX Series AND First in the European BMX Series. Thomas Hamon joins Joris with a strong Second in Euro points.

In the Elite Women’s end of things, Manon Valentino got off to a GREAT start with a big win at the UCI Supercross race in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. Manon currently sits at Second Place in the overall Supercross series and French BMX National Teammate, Magalie Pottier ranks Third in SX points. The two girls currently reside at #1 & #2 in the European Rankings.

Alienation BMX sends out a warm welcome to the family to the awesome French team. We welcome the best, to the best!

28/06 Do Not Stress Over Your Competition in the Sport of BMX

By Stan Popovich
Here’s a second article from Stan, again we would like to thank him for his contribution and tell you a little about him so here goes:
Stan Popovich is the author of “A Layman’s Guide to Managing Fear Using Psychology, Christianity and Non Resistant Methods” – an easy to read book that presents a general overview of techniques that are effective in managing persistent fears and anxieties. For additional information go to: http://www.managingfear.com/

Many BMX athletes sometimes get anxious when they go against a tough opponent. They get nervous on who they are competing with and they get so worked up that they lose focus on their own performance. In the end, they make mistakes and end up beating themselves up if they do not win. As a result, here is a list of techniques that a BMX athlete can use to help manage the stress of going against the competition.

The first step is to learn as much as you can on your opponent. Although this may seem obvious, some BMX athletes may think they already know what they need to know. Remember there is always something to learn about your competition. Read the reports about your opponent and watch him or her performance. Try to figure out an angle on how you can beat your competition. The more you know about your competition the better your chances are you will win. This will also help to reduce your worries in the future.

Do not assume anything about your competition whether they are stronger or weaker than you. Every BMX athlete has his good and bad times and just because you may be facing a stronger opponent does not mean that you will lose. Remember that you and your opponent both have an equal chance of winning. You are both starting from scratch. This should help you to give you confidence going into your next event.

Focus on how you can best strive for perfection in your own event instead of worrying about your opponent. For instance, you are going against the number one athlete in the tournament and you are nervous. Instead of focusing on how good your competition is, focus on your performance. Concentrate on how you can perform your event and how you can best improve on your problem areas.

Realize that you can’t win all of the time and that also includes your competition. You may be the best athlete in the world, however you will still sometimes lose. No one can win all of the time. When facing a tough competitor, use this fact to your advantage. Even the best athletes will make some mistakes.

It is not uncommon to get nervous when you go against a better opponent. All you can do is to focus on your skill sets and do the best you can. This will help you in the long run.

27/06 Prophecy’s Moana Moo-caille brings back home a 3rd and a 2nd place from last Euro rounds!

Prophecy press release
The Euro 9th and 10th BMX rounds took place in Birmingham (UK) this past 18/19th of June and Moana Moo-caille went there to finalize his preparation before the World championship in Denmark end of July.

This Birmingham track was a completely new track that most of the rider just discovered before the race….We can say that it was a fast and technical track and riders did a great show on it….

Moana Moo-Caille was our only Prophecy BMX rider going to this Euro round and he did again a great race with many “hole shots” with his Prophecy BMX carbon frame!!!!

Saturday after a really good start side by side with Joris Daudet who took the lead because of the inside line, Moana stayed in contact with him until the last turn far away from other riders…but a small mistake on the last jumping section make him loose the second place to finish finally third!

The Sunday Moana reached again the main and even if his start was not as good as the Saturday, he succeed to turn at the second place and follow Joris Daudet this time until the finish line finishing at a really good 2nd place!!!!

Is a shame than Moana did not do all Euro rounds because he would have been certainly on the top 3 of the final ranking…

Since the Switzerland Euro rounds his results are: 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd….it looks like a count down before the first victory!!!!!! That will certainly come very soon…

Elite Men results Sunday:
1 DAUDET Joris France
2 MOO CAILLE Moana France (Prophecy BMX)
3 TREIMANIS Edzus Latvia
4 VAN GORKOM Jelle Nederland
5 GODET Damien France
6 VAN DER HEIJDEN Jordy Nederland

DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS OPPORTUNITY!

27/06 Managing You Anxieties in the Sport of BMX

By Stanley Popovich
Before we get started we would like to thank Stan for his contribution and give you a little introduction so here goes:
Stan Popovich is the author of “A Layman’s Guide to Managing Fear Using Psychology, Christianity and Non Resistant Methods” – an easy to read book that presents a general overview of techniques that are effective in managing persistent fears and anxieties. For additional information go to: http://www.managingfear.com/

At times, our worries and anxieties can overwhelm us. In addition, our worries can distort our perception of what is reality and what is not. As a result, this may interfere with your sport of BMX. Here is a brief list of techniques that a BMX athlete can use to help gain a better perspective on things during their anxious moments.

Sometimes we get stressed out when everything happens all at once. When this happens, a person should take a deep breath and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get their mind off of the problem. A person could read the newspaper, listen to some music or do an activity that will give them a fresh perspective on things. This is a great technique to use right before your next BMX event.

Remember that all the worrying in the world will not change anything. Most of what we worry about never comes true. Instead of worrying about something that probably won’t happen, concentrate on what you are able to do.

Another technique that is very helpful is to have a small notebook of positive statements that you can carry around with you. Whenever you come across an affirmation that makes you feel good, write it down in a small notebook that you can carry around with you. Whenever you feel stressed before your event, open up your small notebook and read those statements. This will help to manage your negative thinking.

In every anxiety-related situation you experience, begin to learn what works, what doesn’t work, and what you need to improve on in managing your fears and anxieties. For instance, you have a lot of anxiety before your event and you decide to take a walk to help you feel better. The next time you feel anxious you can remind yourself that you got through it the last time by taking a walk. This will give you the confidence to manage your anxiety the next time around.

Take advantage of the help that is available around you. If possible, talk to a professional who can help you manage your fears and anxieties. They will be able to provide you with additional advice and insights on how to deal with your current problem. By talking to a professional, a person will be helping themselves in the long run because they will become better able to deal with their problems in the future. Remember that it never hurts to ask for help.

It is not easy to deal with all of our fears and worries. When your fears and anxieties have the best of you, try to calm down and then get the facts of the situation. The key is to take it slow. All you can do is to do your best each day, hope for the best, and when something does happen, take it in stride. Take it one step at a time and things will work out.

24/06 Sanctioning of BMX Racing is unified in the United States

USA BMX press release
From its humble beginnings in the 1970’s to its inclusion in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, BMX racing has seen many changes through the years. Many sanctioning bodies have come and gone during the 40 year history of the sport, but two have remained. The American Bicycle Association (ABA) and the National Bicycle League (NBL) have both been in operation since the 1970’s and now, like so many sports leagues, the two have joined forces and will operate as USA BMX.

USA BMX will operate out of the current ABA headquarters in Gilbert, Arizona. With over 350 sanctioned tracks around the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, USA BMX will serve as the sanctioning body for these tracks and over 70,000 members. USA BMX will coordinate the national, regional, state, and local scheduling for all tracks as well as manage the 2012 U.S. Olympic BMX Trials in conjunction with the United States Olympic Committee and USA Cycling. American BMX racers who grew up racing at both ABA and NBL tracks have gone on to win three Olympic medals and nine BMX World Cup events; more than any other country. BMX racing returns to the Olympics in 2012 in London.

“This is an exciting time for our sport and an exciting time for the ABA,” said Bernie Anderson, Chairman of the Board. “We have had a talented and dedicated staff that have served our sport well through the years and the unification of the sanctioning bodies is a tribute to their perseverance and hard work.” Bernie Anderson entered into the sport as a track operator in 1978 and became ABA Chairman of the Board in 1986. “BMX has seen many changes through the years,” said USA BMX, CEO, BA Anderson. “The unification of the sanctioning bodies for BMX racing will allow us to focus on the continued growth and development of our sport while better managing our resources,” continued Anderson. “We have been working towards one sanctioning body for many years,” said ABA past President, Clayton John. “I am happy that the foundation Bernie and I worked on during my 27 years has come to fruition; this is a great time for BMX racing.” Clayton John served as the President of the ABA from 1981 through 2008.

Founded in 1974, the National Bicycle League represents some 10,000 members and 100 tracks. Founded in 1977, the American Bicycle Association represents some 60,000 members and 250 tracks. Together, they are the sport’s two longest operating sanctions. Much like Major League Baseball and the subtle difference between the National and American League, the two sanctioning bodies for BMX racing do have differences. “We will finish out the 2011 season of each sanctioning body while working to complete plans for 2012 and beyond,” said Anderson. “The 2012 national schedule will feature events at tracks that in the past have flown ABA or NBL banners; they will now fly USA BMX banners,” continued Anderson. “

“Words cannot describe my excitement for the future of BMX. The rich heritage of both organizations and the combined knowledge are going to catapult the sport to new heights, while also allowing local level racing to prevail,” stated USA BMX, COO, John David. “While we will work to preserve the history and uniqueness of each organization; now is a time for advancing and growing our sport, concluded Anderson. “The staff and I are excited about the changes and look forward to the new challenges and exciting future of BMX racing.”

24/06 Alienation BMX Picks Up Sponsorship Deal With GT BMX!

Alienation BMX press release
The Big Blue Wings of GT are going to be flying with the help of the best rims in BMX…..from Alienation. The deal will see two of the greatest riders in the world, Mike Day and Corben Sharrah running Alienation rims around the world in competition at the highest levels of BMX racing.

Corben Sharrah…..Coming off of a big win at the UCI BMX Supercross race in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa; Corben has shown himself to be one of the riders on the Elite BMX circuit to be feared as a threat in every race he enters.

Mike Day…..GT Factory Team Member, Mike Day is a legend before his time. #365 is known world wide as one of the best bike handlers ever, plus he has the winning tradition that makes him always a threat to a make his main. Also, we can’t forget that Mike is the first ever BMX Olympic Silver Medalist.

The team will be running the Deviant / Runaway combo from Alienation BMX, which is the lightest and strongest rim duo, on the BMX race scene. The Deviant is the dome shaped front rim with no brake track that is the world’s lightest production BMX racing rim. The rear mounted Runaway is a strong double walled, welded rim that is sized just right for a ‘not too wide’ rear pro rim.

“Today’s racing landscape is littered with amazing talent, but none exactly like team GT.” said Alienation vice president Zach Taylor. “Mike Day is arguably one of the greatest riders of all time and Corben’s addition this season goes a long way towards strengthening the foundation for a lengthy racing legacy.”

Eric “Big Daddy” Rupe…..Rounding out the team sponsorship is GT Factory Team Manager, Eric Rupe who is one of the greatest pros of all time, and is a master at running a successful team with logistics and team know-how to keep the Elite riders ready to win. Rupe, who still competes regularly is enjoying a successful streak of six straight UCI BMX Cruiser World Titles, and will be battling at ABA Nationals in the U.S. in 46-50 Cruiser and 41 & Over on his 20.

Watch for the GT BMX Factory Team riders to be riding their Alienation rims to victory at ABA National events around the U.S. plus Mike and Corben, contesting at the highest levels of BMX racing at UCI BMX SX races around the world.

Max and Brandan at Mount Gambier
Max did a great job in A Pro making the final on both days at Mount Gambier. Max finished fourth on Saturday and hit the podium on Sunday with a third place. Max was also representing his state riding for the Victorian team in the four man pro teams race and did a great job.

Brandan showed up for Sunday looking forward to his first race for the Supercross team, but it all went horribly wrong at the end of the first straight in his first moto when he crashed at the end of the first straight and had to withdraw from racing. It won’t be long before we see Brandan back in the A Pro mix.

16/06 ONE Bicycles Australia Team at the Mighty 11’s and NSW Pre titles Event

ONE Bicycles Australia press release
This year the Mighty 11 Trans Tasman event was incorporated with the NSW State Pre Titles and was being held at the Liverpool track in Sydney. The Rose tribe had ridden this track on many occasions and liked the technical track. Recently the Club had the corners done with bitumen making it a very fast technical layout!

Mikayla was eligible to race for a place in the Scholarship Girls Australian Team and was very excited about her chance to be a part of this team. Her friend Shelby was part of the Team and a good chance of representing her country in NZ at the end of the year. Mikayla was excited as she rode well on the track and had a good history at this particular Club. Mikayla rode hard and well in the Qualifier, but found herself in the 7 rider heats and with the calibre of rider competing, made it difficult to get ahead of the boys. Mikayla’s main competition were Queenslanders Shelby Green 1A and Tennile Spencer 4A, who had travelled down for the event. Mikayla did ride well in the heats, but as the motos were coming to an end, she was dead even with new comer Emma O’Hearn from the Southlake’s Club. Mikayla came to the last heat and was still on even points with Emma. Mikayla drew a tough heat with 7 riders and when the dust settled and the points finalised, missed the last remaining spot on the team by a single point, being pipped by Emma. Mikayla was very disappointed and said she could have done no more than she did. Those who know Mikayla know she always races at 110%, so her commitment to the event was never questioned. That’s BMX and random draw! Mikayla now has her sights set on representing her country at the 2012 leg in Australia. Hopefully her run of State Championship wins and Australian plates will get her that opportunity!

In the Pre Titles, Mikayla was up against NZ2 rider Jordon Donaldson and Queenslander Tennile Spencer who were ring ins for the 11 girls class, along with the regulars of Bianca Robertson and Renee Williams, along with Emma O’Hearn. Mikayla rode well on day one with two fourths behind Jordon, Tennile and Bianca. On day two Mikayla rode a lot better. Mikayla came out determined and racked up a third and then a convincing second behind Jordon! It was a deadman final and Emma did not make it through, leaving only 5 girls to battle it out in the final! Out of the gate in the final, Mikayla pulled herself out of her clips and had to chase the pack down to the line. When the dust settled and riders picked themselves up from the ground, Mikayla came in third behind Jordon and Bianca. A lot was learnt this weekend and some serious training required being able to make this her third NSW State Titles in a row, a goal she has set for herself this year.

Mikayla wants to wish the girls all the best who are travelling to New Zealand in October and hope they can be as successful as this leg’s team did, by beating the NZ girls convincingly!

Nikalus was hoping to see if recent training and bike set up had paid dividends for him, as he took on some of his rivals in the 13 boys at the Pre State Titles. His usual competitors were there including Andy Hughes, Brock Griffiths, Ben Bainey and Brody Moore. This has been the local track for Andy, Ben and Brody making the task ahead difficult! Nik rode extremely well on day 1 with a second behind Andy and beating Ben for a win in his second heat. On day 2 Nik managed another first and a second behind Brock to secure his spot in the semi final. Nik drew Andy Hughes in his semi and knew he would be up against it. As the weather had been wet and windy all weekend, Nik was wary of his gate and this was a good choice as he came out flying in his semi, with Andy spinning his rear wheel, giving Nik the advantage he needed to lead the race to the strip with Andy pulling a strong second. It was finals time and Nik was up against all the riders he thought would make it through. Nik came out strong and by the first corner was sitting in a battle for third with Ben Bainey, with Brock just ahead and Andy leading. Nik and Ben battled all the way down the second and third straights with Nik taking a small advantage in to the last straight to cross the line in third behind Andy and then Brock. Well done to all the 13 boys the racing was fantastic and a great lead up to October.

Justin Beattie was on fire again this weekend and with his bike sporting the 1A plate for the third year, there was little to question as to why. Justin’s performance on the two days of the event was nothing short of flawless. Justin appeared to have the track dialled and made his winning effortless, with wins in all four heats, some by half a straight to his competitors. Can anybody beat this kid? The simple answer is NO! Justin came to the final with so much energy after sailing easily through the heats.

Joking about on the start hill, I questioned his decision to chose gate two and asked why he didn’t chose gate one? After further discussion, I then suggested why he didn’t select lane 8 and at least give his fellow finalists a chance! The gate dropped and he was off. His casual style and powerful pedal stroke saw him take a comfortable holeshot in to the first corner ahead of Jiye Ellis of Southlakes. Jiye tried as hard as he could to challenge Justin, but did not quite have the speed or smoothness on the day. Justin walked away from the event without dropping a lap and was well on his way to securing another State #1 plate come October.

Josh was racing 16 boys this weekend and a number of his age rivals were riding 14 + Pro, so numbers were down to two heats. Josh had been training well and challenging himself with some bigger jumping and skills practice. Josh was on fire too and found himself out in front of the pack by the first corner and sailing smoothly down the technical second straight, manualling effortlessly to keep his opponents at bay. On day 1 Josh had secured 2 wins from 2 starts and was looking like he was on song to make the final. On day 2 the weather was not much better with winds and scattered showers, which made the racing interesting. Josh continued his winning ways in the next two heats and was set up for the final. Josh too had a Spencer in his final and when the gate dropped in the final, Josh was in chase mode taking off after a quick Queensland rider in Spencer. Josh made up some valuable ground down the second straight and was on his rear tyre for the rest of the lap finishing behind him to take second. Josh later stated he took his competition too lightly after winning all his heats and never saw this result coming. Josh was happy with his racing on the weekend and is now looking forward to October to see if he can strap a NSW plate to his 20” bike for the first time and an acknowledgement of the hard work he has done of late.

16/06 2012 Limited Edition Speed and Intense Race Frames

VSI press release
CERRITOS, CA-Later this month, VSI will offer Limited Edition Speed M-Series and Intense Podium frames. Both frames feature new lightweight tubing, 10- and 20-millimeter axle compatibility, smooth double-pass welds and new paint jobs and graphics.

Depending on the size, the frames weigh approximately 6 to 8 ounces less than the current production M-Series and Podium models. The weight loss comes from new butting profiles in the tube sets. Each tube was meticulously engineered to be lighter weight, yet retain strength and rigidity where needed. The Speed M533 frame weighs 3.5 pounds, which is 6 ounces lighter than a current model in the same size. The Podium also weighs 3.53 pounds, at a weight loss of 8 ounces, or half a pound.

The Intense Podium Limited weighs just 3.5 pounds and comes with 10-/20-millimeter drop outs.

The Speed Limited M-Series frames also weigh in at just 3.5 pounds.

Although all second-generation Speed frames larger than Expert XL have come with 10-/20-millimeter axle compatibility, the new Podiums are the first to have the versatile dropouts. Both Limited Edition frames include two sets of chain tensioner Blocks for the proprietary rear dropouts. The forged and precision CNC-machined Blocks work with either standard 10-millimeter axle wheels or the stiffer and better-handling Sinz Elite 20-millimeter through-axle wheels.

Use the 10-millimeter blocks and run any standard wheel set or, for better gate snaps, a more powerful and efficient pull down the first straight and better handling, upgrade to the Sinz Elite 20-millimeter iHub wheels and use the 20-millimeter Blocks. Sinz Elite will begin shipping 20-millimter rear hub wheels later this summer.


Two sets of precision CNC-machined 10- and 20-millimeter chain tensioner Blocks come with each frame.

Both frames are available in one color each-a “chrome” and red Flying Circus-inspired paint job for the Intense and black and red for the Speed.

Production for both Limted Edition frames was limited to 200. They come in Pro/M520, Pro XL/M533, Pro XL+ (Podium only), Pro XXL/M546, Pro Cruiser/M534 and Pro Cruiser Plus/M547 sizes. The M547 cruiser frame is new size in the Speed line.

The frames also feature smoother double-pass welds, which add strength and give the tubing junctions a cleaner appearance.


Double-pass welds add strength and smooth out the beads.

15/06 Prophecy BMX Team results

Prophecy BMX press release

1) Joey Bradford Winner of the 2011 Crown-Haitai international race in Seoul (Korea):

After his victory in Japan last April just after his come back from injuries, Joey Bradford took again the win but this time in Korea at the 2011 Crown-Haitai international race in Seoul!!!!

Most of the best Elite BMX rider was invited at this race which was in live on ESPN Korea to try to fight to get the big price money of 6000USD for the winner….

Even if the track was little different that we use to see, all riders said it was fun and all did great race…and show what BMX is to the Korean public coming to see all these champions.

During the main even if Edzus Treimanis took the lead, Joey wait the last turn to make the move and pass Edzus and get by the way the 6000USD!!!!

A great win for a rider who just back for a long injury…and a great win again for the Prophecy BMX carbon frame Scud!!!! (www.prophecy-bmx.com).

Joey Bradford’s Report from Korea: “Although the track is different, to say the least, the Crown Haiti International BMX Competition in Seoul, Korea is definitely one of the coolest races to attend! The Korean Cycling Federation and organizers for this race do an awesome job of hosting riders from around the world, making a big effort to treat everyone to a “rockstar” style trip and race. For most, the trip is fully paid for. Everything from your flight, to transportation, lodging, and meals are taken care of and first class, and then on top of all that they have a prize purse set around $30,000 USD up for grabs to who ever can survive the track!

The best way to describe the track is to imagine an all concrete skate park made for bikes, and laid out over the shape of your typical m shaped BMX track. They altered the starting hill this year by placing an eight-man ProGate on top of the ramp, so instead of having a hard time slip-sliding down into gate and then getting set up, you now had a two crank sprint before dropping into a quarter pipe-like-hill. The first straight is basically five rounded off box spines in a row, all the turns are flat with a two foot embankment at the very end, and if you don’t bump jump or pull manual a few jumps on the second and third straights your front sprocket will clip the top of the lips (check YouTube for video of Japan’s Masahiro Sampei in last years final. He had third place and $4K locked up, until all hell broke loose on the third straight).

Once you look past the facts this track is nothing like you have ever ridden, isn’t at all fun to ride during the first practice, and the pyramid-shaped rollers before the finish line are only spaced 7 feet apart instead the normal 13-15 feet… this track is fun to race on. You have to actually use practice to dial in the track, and because of the flat corners there are a LOT of opportunities for passing and side-by-side racing instead of getting into the blue groove and holding the throttle wide open like you do on tracks now a days. The style of this track is more Formula-1 than Nascar. Come race time, my short legs couldn’t land flat in a manual off the second jump without sapping all my speed speed so I had to play it smart and patient. Edzus Treimanis from Latvia has been going really fast the past few months and we were paired up in the same moto. Getting through the qualifiers wasn’t going to be very difficult, so I saved some energy and just followed him; paying attention to the lines he was taking through the corners and taking notice of places you could pass. In the final, I slowed up quite a bit before the second jump to make sure I didn’t loose all my speed, tucked in behind Edzus and then sure enough the open line on the bottom of the flat last turn was there like I thought it would be! We locked elbows a bit but I tried to give him enough room to carry on down the last straight and we went 1-2. All in all it was a great trip, and I have to be happy with the result seeing as it was my first big race back after being off the bike for six months! I’m glad I took my time, waiting until I felt ready instead coming back too early and just getting hurt again like I have done the last two years. I’d like to thanks Junwon Jang/EJ Koh and everybody else from KCF and Crown for putting on this event and taking such good care of us, and the companies who are supporting me – Prophecy BMX, Hasbro, Fly, THE, Sinz, Oakley, Tioga, Profile, and Snap. See you guys in Copenhagen!”

Sponsors of Joey: Prophecy BMX, Hasbro, Fly, THE, Sinz, Oakley, Tioga, Profile, and Snap.

2) Moana Moo-Caille scored 5th and 4th place at the 7 and 8 rounds of the European Elite Championships in Winterthur (Switzerland):

Moana just finish his studies and he just start his new training program…and even if Moana was not at 100% of his capacities, he succeed to make the main the both days showing to everybody his consistency and that he will be one of the faster rider to look after during this end of season and especially at the world’s!!!

But we must not forget as well Mr Henrik Baltzersen who will race the world championship at home with 200% motivation and the public behind him…

08/06 Morphine Industries – NashVegas Race Report

Morphine Industries press release
Nashville is famous for country music and Music City BMX.  We’re not into country music but we can’t pass up a rad track with big jumps, so we made the trip to NashVegas to put our new DK Race Forks to the test.  The track was fast and burly….and the weather was HOT!  The racing action was just as hot as the weather, as every class main looked like a main at Grands.  This made for some killer racing and our riders were in the mix every time.   Here’s how they did;

Tim Dinger went from 3rd to 1st on the second straight on almost every lap in Vet Pro but things didn’t work out that way when he needed it the most and had to settle with a 5th on Saturday.  It turns out he was doing it with a torn meniscus, so Dinger will be out for a little while so he can get it taken care of and hit it hard the last half of the season.

Olijuwon Davis was looking fast as always (thanks to his HAWK bottom bracket)  making mains both days in A Pro with a 3rd and a 6th.

Charlie Hunt was on the podium both days in 28-35X, with two 2nd place finishes and decided get in on the action in 17& over open Sunday, taking home the win.  Three races, three podiums. Good job CH3!

Doran Bradshaw battled heat, dehydration and 17 other fast dudes in 36-40.  The heat & tough comp cooled off his recent winning spree but he made all his mains and still pulled in a 3rd & 4th in expert and a 4th & 5th in cruiser. Be sure to drink your water kids!

Our co-sponsored riders were killin’ it too!  BlackCrown riders Ryan Deroche, RJ Livesay, Chris Murphy & Nick Connelly and Powers Bike Shop riders Jason Sherrill, Pat Parker, Dan Birmingham, Niles Austin, Hannah & Abagayle Macloed & Jeffery Ketron  all put in killer laps in their main events.

Next stop; Rockford.   We’ll have the whole crew there for a weekend of domination and good times! –And its all possible thanks to our lineup of awesome sponsors! Check out their products that keep our riders going fast and looking good!

07/06 One Bicycles Justin Beattie wins at NSW Vs Victoria

One Bicycles Australia press release
ONE bicycles team Australia rider Justin Beattie takes out the 12yr boy class at the inaugural NSW vs Victoria challenge.

by Jim Beattie

This was Justin’s first race after notching up his third Aussie title win in Cairns last month and catching a well deserved break. Great weather with a well prepared Wodonga track saw Justin and his mate James Tait slug it out for line honours. James would have to the be one of the unluckiest kids in 12yr bmx and is always one of the boys that Justin keeps an eye on. Racing was close with Justin tending to win the holeshot in to turn 1 and then holding James out.

Justin Beattie riping it up at Wodonga

Both state presidents had engaged in a bit of banter in the lead up to the big day, so it was fair to say that the gauntlet had well and truly been thrown down. Racing was tight all day and great to sit back and watch. Justin was disappointed not to see his coach Adam Carey transfer through to the main after riding well in his motos. He was happy enough that NSW took home the day overall even though we got beat on the team challenge. All in all a good days racing.

Special mentions to Justins mate Bailey. Bailey has made some big gains on the track over the past few months and only missed out on the main due to a simple mistake coming out of turn 2. Also to Justins big sister Brianna who, coming back from an injured wrist was thrilled not to come last in pro ladies. Nice work guys

Next weekend is the NSW pre titles and Mighty 11 challenge at the Liverpool track. This track is set to be the place to race in Sydney with its technical 2nd and 3rd straights and tight bitumen corners. Justins team mate Mikayla Rose is in line to make the Aussie side for the New Zealand leg of the tour and will be hard to keep out of the girls team. Justin will be there to cheer on Mikayla and his mate Will Moran who made the Aussie Boys team. Will is an inspired choice from the NSW selectors. He is a big kid with a great gate and plenty of first straight pull. Between him and the rest of the Aussie boys ,they will give the Kiwi tent plenty to think about.

You couldn’t have asked for better weather for the opening of the new race track at the Sleeman sports complex in Brisbane. It was a sunny 24°, a little different to the cold and rain we have been getting used to in Victoria.

We got a bunch of photos, click here to check them out.

02/06 Team bmxultra.com update – Victoria Vs NSW

bmxultra.com press release
The bmxultra.com team AA riders were out in full force in the 40 strong pro class at the Victoria Vs NSW clash in Wondonga on Sunday. They were joined by Aaron Rogers in the 30-39 class. Shane Jenkins withdrew with an injury.

Chase Collins is showing signs of improvement doing well in the heats and moving through to the quarters, but in a tough quarter he finished fifth.

Adam Carey always seems to do well at Wodonga, he was dominating in the heats, but didn’t get the best of starts in the semi and just missed out on a finals berth with a fifth place.

Kyle Horton was flying through qualifying, but when the gate dropped in the final he got the squeeze and had to work his way through the field to a respectable fifth place.

Levi Collins has been training hard for the upcoming world championships and it showed. Consistant right through the heats and finals he made it through to the main where he finished just off the podium in fourth place.

Aaron Rogers was riding well through the heats and carried that through to the final where he finished in fourth place.

A great effort by the riders flying the bmxultra.com/One jerseys. The next stop for the team is Sleeman in Brisbane this weekend.

The bmxultra.com team is proudly supported by One Bicycles, Supercross BMX, Dirt Designs, Tioga, Elite Cycle Imports, THE, Profile, Sun Ringle.
