A Note From Web Dude, Jerry Landrum

I will always be a BMXer.....and I never thought that I'd be writing this, but I am saying Goodbye and Thanks to the fine sport of BMX Racing that I have loved, raced and ridden since 1985 and reported on and lived through since 1996.

It's been an honor to have been involved in this awesome, crazy sport from the grass roots to the Olympics and destinations in between. I have many great memories of my time on and around the world's BMX tracks and send much love to my many friends that I have made through my involvement over three decades.

I've still got my Ssquared cruiser dialed in and will make sporadic trips to my local track at the Indy Cycloplex because I will ALWAYS love riding my BMX, and I do have a couple of projects to finish up before I hang up my BMX photo gear for good, but for the most part my full time involvement in BMXing has come to an end. (Unless, of course, someone out there needs a grubby BMX Photo Bum to take some Happy Snaps, let me know.....I can be bought!)

BMXmania,com will still occupy this space on the internet since there are a lot of BMX Memories contained herein, so stop by sometime and check out what there is to see, ride hard, wear your helmet and Watch The Lights!.

What's New In BMX Racing!

BMX Racing News - Tuesday - December 12, 2017


BMX Racing News from - The Oldsmar City Council voted 3-2 against hosting the 2018 UCI World Cup qualifier at the city’s BMX Supercross track Tuesday night, citing labor, cost and liability concerns.

The split decision came after two lengthy discussions about hosting the event, which is put on by Union Cycliste Internacional (UCI); UCI is the world’s governing body for cycling based in Switzerland that oversees everything from mountain biking and BMX to cyclo-cross and the Tour de France.

During the City Council meeting on Nov. 21, Oldsmar Leisure Services Director Felicia Donnelly outlined UCI’s proposal for the two-day event, which is to be held in September 2018. She noted it would be the only one of eight WC qualifiers held in the United Sates and be broadcast in 42 countries.

When Donnelly told the council members their outlay would be roughly $125,000, and the city would be liable for all safety, insurance and liability issues, as well as provide lodging for riders, their families and support personnel, the local lawmakers balked at the proposal.

“I could justify the expense if some of the other components weren’t there,” Mayor Doug Bevis said at the time. “If there was any kind of relationship, but this is a completely one-sided relationship.” Ultimately, the council left the window open to make a deal should UCI make some concessions in the agreement. On Tuesday, Donnelly said she was able to get the organization to agree to shave about $50,000 off the total price tag, bringing the city’s contribution to around $75,000. But she said the liability would remain the same and she acknowledged the workload involved in hosting such an elite international event would be considerable.

“This is a large international event, and it’s going to take a lot of staff from many departments to handle it,” she said, noting the city would need to install the electronic infrastructure, including advanced high speed internet, to be able to meet UCI’s race standards.

Donnelly added that while the officials were concerned about the amount of money, time and work involved to host a one-time event, UCI was amenable to working with the city to host other events in the future, including the prestigious World Cup.

“UCI indicated that they would put in the contract where we would have the right of first refusal for an event for the following year,” she said, adding, “they do want multi-year contracts” and “some of the other locations have hosted as long as eight years.”

But with a tight timeframe to provide UCI with an answer, and little perceived benefit to the city, three of the five council members—Bevis, Gabby McGee and Eric Seidel—voted against hosting the event.

“I’m thinking of the value of this one-time event moving forward,” Bevis said, noting the county’s Tourist Development Council is “looking for long-term relationship events.”

“It’s a lot of money for a one-time event,” Seidel added.

Council member Jerry Beverland and Vice-Mayor Dan Saracki voted in favor of continuing to work with UCI representatives to reach a deal, but with a pre-Christmas deadline for a decision and no council meetings scheduled for the rest of the year, the deal was officially dead.

After the meeting, the mayor spoke about the council’s decision.

“Like I said earlier, I think it’s a lot of money for a one-time deal,” Bevis told Oldsmar Connect.

He was also quick to note that many of the elite riders scheduled to compete in the UCI event have already been to Oldsmar as part of the annual Gator Nationals and other events.

“We’ve had an Olympic qualifier here, and many of the riders and teams I saw in the UCI race standings have been here in the past,” he said, citing US Olympic rider Connor Fields and the Latvian national team as previous visitors to Oldsmar’s track.

Bevis said while being considered to host a World Cup qualifier is an honor, he just couldn’t justify the time, effort and expense needed to pull it off.

“It’s a lot of taxpayer dollars for a one-time event, and I just don’t think, structurally, it works for us.”

The city’s Supercross track is set to host the 2018 Gator Nationals event Feb. 23-25, and the Oldsmar Sports Complex facility will also host the SSA Florida Cup SeriesJan. 12-14, 2018.



BMX Racing News - Monday - November 6, 2017

Chula Vista, California was the site of one of the coolest BMX races in a long time, Monday, November 7th. Cafe Willoughby, the BMX racing podcast put on the Cafe Willoughby Holeshot Challenge, hybrid BMX race that not only was unique in it's inception, but featured a respectable payout for the pros and hot experts who signed up.

The participants were 8 invited high level pros including both UC Elite Men's and Women's World Champs, Corben Sharrah and Alise Post. Other 'Great Eight' riders were Joris Daudet, Nic Long, Tanner Sebesta, Anthony Dean, Sean Gaian and Tory Nyhaug. Eight other top dogs, including Justin Posey, David Graf, Jake Peebles, Zach Van Kamen and Billy Russell lined up with the invited pros and each round, riders were eliminated thru nine laps until the two finalists, Joris Daudet and David Graf lined up for an exciting finish to the Holeshot Challenge.

Joris got out of the gate first with Graf missing his timing a bit but David poured on the speed down the first straight to get set up for a sweet move that he had made a couple times during the night but the Flying Frenchman outlasted David's challenge to hold on for the Three Grand win!

Anthony Dean (Pictured above on the right) had a great night, winning several hot laps earlier in the eliminations but he went out in the 'Round Of Three'. Nice night for Anthony as he walked away with some cold cash after a fun race gig.

Overall, the Cafe Willoughby Holeshot Challenge was a fun race, with some awesome competitors and a great payout. Cafe Willoughby has plans for more cool events like this, only adding to the great sport that we know and love. Good job, Tyler and Sam, the Holeshot Challenge was a HUGE success!











BMX Racing News - Monday - October 23, 2017
Since its creation by Daniel Yujnovich in 2012, Rival Racing BMX has been an Australian brand where it was created, developed, and established as a reputable bike brand amongst the vast offerings of frame options currently available. With meticulous attention to detail, countless hours of research and development on tubing shapes to make sure the absolute best design is being used, Daniel put his heart and soul into developing the Rival brand of bikes.

Rival is known for its unique look, wind tunnel tested technology tubing, and exceptional quality all thanks to Daniel’s tireless effort and commitment to excellence. The next logical step for the brand’s growth would be to push the brand’s popularity and availability to markets beyond Australia. Fast forward to a chance meeting with Ryan Birk, a BMX industry veteran, at the 2016 USA BMX Grands about potentially moving the brand to USA to better position itself to grow in the market. Over the course of the past 6 or 7 months a new business plan was developed and has led to a new and exciting era for Rival BMX!

Effective immediately, Rich Rice of Indianapolis has purchased Rival Racing BMX, LLC and the company will now be headquartered in Indianapolis IN, the “Racing Capital of the World” for those of you familiar with the Indy 500. In addition to Rival Racing frames, a new component company will also be a part of the corporation to pair with the Rival frames and compete amongst the industry leaders in high-end BMX race products. The name of the component brand and details will be announced at a later date. Rice, a lifelong BMX fan, and father of 3 BMX racers, had this to say about the new acquisition, “I know some people will think I’m insane for wanting to invest in a BMX race company with all the craziness going on in the industry right now, but I’m an optimist that sees the bright future for BMX and have seen firsthand what positive impact the sport has had on my family. Every industry has its ups and downs and it’s been my experience that the ones that put people as the focus and not profit tend to come out on top, provided their product is desirable. I believe the Rival brand is worthy of taking that shot. I believe I have the team of people built around me to form the company that can be a continued success. We have the pieces in place and the plan to make this venture work within the current industry environment. I can’t wait to get started in Tulsa a month from now.”

Rice has secured Ryan Birk to continue to work with the new venture as the Brand Director and help oversee all aspects of the business. “Everybody in BMX knows Birk and knows of the success he has had building brands and establishing them as staples in the sport. He’s well respected, experienced, and enthusiastic, and his resume speaks volumes about what he’s done for the sport and companies he’s worked for.” Rice said. Production is already in place for the new 2018 frames and the addition of smaller mini and junior size frames which haven’t been offered before. Future plans include the development of the new component line, the formation of a USA Factory Team, and the implementation of a co-sponsorship program for teams and riders for the 2018 season.

Brand founder Yujnovich will continue working with the brc1nd he created in various roles. Yujnovich stated, “I am excited for this new direction for Rival Racing and with the brand being directed by Ryan Birk and based in the USA. Now more than ever, the Rival Racing brand has the opportunity to expand and develop the best products available in today’s BMX market. I am happy to continue with my role of Product Design and Development at Rival Racing and will continue to manage the Rival Racing Factory Team here in Australia.” Yujnovich’s creative talents and product design expertise will be crucial for continued development and improvement of not only the Rival frames but also the new component company.

“It’s crazy how things work out in life sometimes. A year ago, I found myself out of a job in the BMX industry for the first time in 20 years. I had no idea what I was going to do to support my family. Jenny Rice, who is Rich’s wife, a very involved BMX mom, and also one of the top Real Estate Brokers in the Indianapolis area, convinced me to get my Realtor license and join her team selling homes. As I was starting that process, we went to the Grands for the first time as “spectators” and not workers or racers. It was there I got to meet Dan for the first time and within 10 minutes of our conversation I knew this guy did things right. From there the process started of developing the plan that led to this point. Then, the opportunity for Rich to own a BMX business presented itself as a result of the relationships and processes that started a year ago and I’m sure nobody planned on. I’m more excited about BMX than I have been in a long time! The fact that things worked out the way they did literally one year later is a true blessing. I want to thank Jenny and Rich Rice both for the amazing opportunities they have presented for me over this past year and for believing in me. Thanks to Dan for being one of the classiest guys I’ve met in the BMX industry. And lastly, thanks to my wife Natarsha Birk for all her support during this crazy past year of our lives,” stated Birk.

Lots of changes will be happening over the next few weeks with setting up the infrastructure and logistics of the new corporation. Rival will begin contacting Dealers, Distributors and current support teams and riders to explain the new transition. The formation of a new Factory Team as well as a co-sponsorship support program for the 2018 season will begin almost immediately as part of our marketing platform for the upcoming year. Rival would also like to take this opportunity to give a HUGE THANK YOU to those that have helped Rival promote the brand thus far in the North American market and have gone above and beyond: Jason Shaw, his family, and his entire Rival Texas team. We look forward to a bright future together. Also, thank you to John and Amy Haywood here in Indy for your commitment to the brand these past 8 months. And we can’t forget our good friends to the north in Canada, Ron Botrokoff who started the Rival Canada Devo program and Chad Currie at Trackside BMX. THANK YOU ALL for your effort and support thus far, we can’t thank you enough. We look forward to working with all of you in the future as we grow the Rival brand into what we all hope and envision for the future.

We’re excited about the future and bringing Rival to the forefront of the BMX race world.

NFL star Marshawn Lynch unveils his big BMX bike from SE

Oakland, CA — Expect nothing less than a beast of a bike when NFL champion Marshawn Lynch joins forces with the legendary SE Bikes brand to design an all-new BMX bicycle.

The Beast Mode Ripper is built upon powerfully large 27.5-inch x 3-inch Beast Mode Vee tires, with an alloy frame that takes design cues from SE’s legendary PK Ripper with floval tubing and a looptail rear end.

Long before Lynch became a football star he loved riding BMX bikes around his hometown of Oakland, California. During his short retirement from the NFL, Lynch rekindled his passion for BMX, and was attracted to SE Bikes due to the brand’s uniquely large BMX bikes with 26-inch and 29-inch wheels. "As a little ass kid, I always put together bikes, while I was doing it, all I could think of is... I wanted to have my own bike and NOW I GOT MY OWN BIKE,” said Lynch.

Once Todd Lyons, brand manager of SE Bikes, caught wind of Lynch riding around Oakland on an SE, he reached out to see if the NFL star, famed for his punishing running style, was interested in a collaboration project. After the two put their heads together they decided to create the world’s first BMX bike built around 27.5-inch wheels: The Beast Mode Ripper.

For his part, Lyons said he knew any collaboration with Lynch had to be big and bold. Along with the wheel sizing and iconic frame design, the Beast Mode Ripper features classic gold-on-black details and the famous “BEAST MODE” tagline emblazoned on the frame and sidewalls of the plus-sized tires.

“When I first started talking with Marshawn about designing a bike, I knew we had to make it like no other bike on the market,” Lyons said. “We started from scratch with the design and came up with the world’s first BMX bike built with 27.5-inch wheels. And it rides amazing.”

The Beast Mode Ripper was recently unveiled by Lynch at the #oaklandrideout, where hundreds of riders — young and old — joined the hometown host to wheelie around Oakland. Needless to say, everyone was blown away by Lynch’s BMX, the Beast Mode Ripper.

The Beast Mode Ripper and SE Racing apparel collaboration will be available in July at SE Bikes retailers worldwide,, and the Beast Mode stores in Oakland and Seattle, $899 MSRP.

About SE Bikes ..... SE Bikes was founded in 1977 by the Godfather of BMX, Scot Breithaupt. The brand was originally known as SE Racing during BMX’s first boom in the late 1970s and early ‘80s. The brand’s iconic PK Ripper bike was introduced in 1979 and remains the longest continuing production BMX bike in the world. Today, SE Bikes offers a full range of style- and performance-driven BMX and urban bikes in a wide range of wheel sizes for riders of all levels. To learn more about SE Bikes visit:

About Beast Mode® ..... The Beast Mode assortment offers a full range of lifestyle and graphic-inspired apparel including tops, bottoms, hats, socks, underwear, and most recently Chocolate Bars. Beast Mode’s first flagship store, located at 811 Broadway, Oakland CA, opened in February of 2015, and has already become a “must visit” destination for locals and visitors alike. Beast Mode’s most recent flagship store is located in Seattle, WA, at 558 1st Avenue South. To learn more about BEAST MODE, visit:

Joris and Connor trade Pro wins in Atlanta

Chase BMX Race Report - USABMX Dixieland Nationals - Atlanta, Georgia 
Round 5 of the 2017 USA BMX Pro Series tour took the riders to the newly built Dixieland BMX track in Atlanta, GA. 
Both Connor and Joris were coming off a great weekend of racing in Austin and looking forward to having another successful weekend in Atlanta, but little did they know how good the event would go for them.

On Friday night, they would line up for the main event and have the crowd amped for the finale. Joris would take the hole shot, with Connor just behind him, and the two would race Tioga tire to tire until Joris was able to slightly gap Connor and ride his way to victory.

On Saturday, it was Joris and Connor who were stand outs in the qualifying racing one again, and as they were on the gate for the main they were ready to battle it out for the last race of the weekend. When the gate slammed down, it was Joris once again with a lead, but Connor was right on his rear wheel the entire lap. Heading into the last turn, Connor turned it up, pulled side by side with Joris and edged him out at the line for the win!

With the Chase Pros sweeping the weekend, its the perfect way for them to be ready to head off to into the UCI World Cup season with wining momentum for the 1st 2 rounds of the 2017 UCI BMX SX race season, with 4 SX events over 2 weekends of racing in Holland and Belgium.

Fields and Daudet Dominate at USABMX Lone Star National

Chase BMX Race Report - USABMX Lone Star Nationals - Pflugerville, Texas

Connor Fields back on top with a win, while Joris Daudet continues his consistent season with two 2nd place finishes.

The USA BMX Pro Series continued this past weekend in Pflugerville, Texas for the Lone Star Nationals. The traditional track is spiced up with a 5 meter starting hill, giving the perfect blend of old school and new for the Pro riders to take to the perfectly groomed Central Texas BMX track.

Both Connor and Joris would be racing the Lone Star Nationals aboard their new Chase ACT 1.0 Carbon frames for the first time, and they seemed to love the feel of the new Chase frames on track!

On day for the for the Elite riders, 27 of the worlds fastest Men lined up on the gate, trying to qualify their way into the main event. Both Joris Daudet and Connor Fields looked fast and made their want into the Main event. Joris has been the most consistent Elite rider this season, while Connor is coking back from his early season set back in Oldsmar, with his crash. When the gate dropped for the finale, they both took to the front of the pack, but neither were able to get ahead of Corben Sharrah before the first turn.

Joris was just behind him, with Connor in tow, and they tried there best to run down Corben. Joris made a last ditch effort at the finish and after the photo of the riders crossing the line was reviewed, Joris would just miss out on the win, with Corben taking the victory, and Connor just behind both in 3rd.

On Day 2, the Chase duo would once again race their way into the Main event. This time, Connor and Joris were the 2 stand outs and battled head to head all the way into turn #1, with Connor edging out Joris. Connor would have clear air in front of him and was able to open up a small lead over Joris and ride to victory, with Mr. Daudet finishing just behind, for 1 - 2 result for the Chase Pro team!

Both riders now will have a few day off before heading to Atlanta for the next round of the USA BMX Nationals and then both will head over to Europe for the opening rounds of the 2017 UCI BMX SX race season, with 4 SX events over 2 weekends of racing.

As always, thanks to our great group of partners and sponsors of the Chase BMX Pro team:
