|Jamie Lilly to Ride for FTB BMX and Dialled Bikes for the 2017 Season|
FTB Dialled Bikes LLC is pleased to announce that multiple time USA No.1 Pro, World Champion and Grand National Champion, Jamie Lilly, will be racing for the FTB BMX and Dialled Bikes mountain bike brands in 2017.
Lilly will compete in the USA BMX national series, Grand Nationals and attempt to qualify for Team USA at the 2017 UCI world BMX championships on her FTB Revolution BMX bike. She will also compete at the annual Sea Otter Classic and other select mountain bike races on her prototype Dialled Bikes slalom/4X bike.
Mike Wong, Founder & CEO of FTB Dialled Bikes LLC: "Jamie Lilly is a rider whose place in BMX history is already secured due to being one of the most winning female racers of all time. When the opportunity arose to work with someone with Jamie's pedigree, professionalism and wealth of experience, it seemed like a great collaboration. Hopefully, our partnership with Jamie will help Jamie add to her already impressive legacy in cycle sport, help the FTB BMX and Dialled Bikes' brands gain recognition in the US after recently relocating here from the UK, and give our younger team riders an opportunity to learn from someone who has been there, done that, and won many major titles."
Jamie Lilly: After getting a taste of racing again at the Grands in November, I got the bug and decided to do a full season in 2017. I was approached by Mike to ride for FTB and Dialled Bikes, and I am so excited about this opportunity and appreciate Mike's faith in me. After building the bikes and having a chance to ride them, I was really impressed not only by the way they rode, but also their quality. I couldn't be more stoked for the season to come.
The Dialled Bikes and FTB BMX bicycle brands were originally created in, and operated out of, the United Kingdom. In August 2016, they moved their HQ to Winston-Salem, NC.
Retail customers can purchase FTB and Dialled Bikes products directly from www.ftbbmx.com and www.dialledbikes.com. Dealer enquiries and international distribution enquiries should be sent to email@example.com.
FTB BMX will shortly announce its full BMX team roster for the 2017 race season.

|Web Dude, Jerry Drinks Too Much Christmas Nog|
|And FORGETS WHERE HE IS!|
BMX Mania Dot Com Web and media dude, Jerry Landrum is featured in this week's version of the BMX Web Podcast, Rail The Berm, The Bicycle Motocross Show.
Unfortunately for Jerry, he must have had too much Christmas Nog and forgot which BMX Podcast he was on, insisting that Rail The Berm had just interviewed Swiss Cycling Pro BMXer, David Graf when in reality Jerry Mania has envisioned that interview on Dale "BMX Legend" Holmes, podcast, High/Low, The BMX Podcast of December 20.
Despite having a BMX Flashback, Mr. Mania did manage to contribute to the Rail The Berm, "Nails Award" by submitting David Graf as on of the toughest BMXers of the year for his gritty performance in the 2106 Rio Olympics. Landrum also nominated one of the greatest BMXers of all time, Sam Willoughby for his ongoing performance in rehabilitating himself after his life changing accident this past Fall.
Check out Rail The Berm for a fun two hours of BMX grooviness as well as some serious discussions on BMX Racing, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit Of Happiness.
For sure, it is BMX Mania Approved!

|Jesse Welch Joins|
|Throdwn Factory Team|
|Fresh off the championship stage at the USA BMX
Grand National is 2016 USA
BMX National #1 Amateur, Jesse Welch.
The big news recently is that Jesse will be
zip-tying his new #1 plate to a new bike for 2017,
and suiting-up for Factory
As one of the fastest in his age class, Jesse is a major pickup for any team, even without the silver cup and black number plate, but joining an established team like Jim Buchanan is fielding, with a new bike sponsor, will add some extra-special mojo to their efforts.
Jim told Mania, in a statement: “We are all are super-excited to welcome Jesse Welch to the team. We can't wait to get the season started. I’m looking forward to helping Jesse and all his new teammates reach their goals in the 2017.”
Throdwn owner, Charlie Jahnke was eager to welcome Jesse as well, and share his vision for what’s ahead:
“As we push for the Factory Team title, we were looking for the best riders and families in the sport to represent our brand. We are very excited to add Jesse to our roster. Jim Buchanan has a knack for attracting top talent. With Jesse being National #1 Amateur, Jim and I knew it was a no-brainer to add him to the team.”
For his part, Jesse is just-as-jazzed as Jim and Charlie, adding: “I’m stoked to build up the bike and hit the track for 2017. I guess you could say ‘I’m ready to Throdwn!’.”
Watch for Jesse and his Throdwn teammates at the 2017 USA BMX Silver Dollar Nationals in Las Vegas—just four short weeks away.

Celebrating "BMX Day" on the Streets of L.A. with SE Racing!
SE's, Todd Lyons & Kris Fox, rockn' BMX Day in L.A.
|Film/Edit: Ryan Guettler|
|On Nov. 14, 1970, the first-ever competitive BMX
race was held by Scot Breithaupt in Long Beach,
Six years ago in November, 2010, Los Angeles County proclaimed an official "BMX Day" to commemorate the sport's 40th anniversary.
This year nearly 400 BMXers joined together as one on the streets of Hollywood and LA to celebrate BMX's 46th anniversary.
It was definitely a wild scene at times! But of course that's to be expected when you get 100's of BMXers riding together in the name of BMX.

|Rebel Run Sports Camp BMX|
|Launches Expansion Program!|
From Travis Postany, Owner and Founder of Rebel Run Sports Camp - You might not have heard much from us in the past few months, but I can assure you it's not because we haven't been busy. In fact, we've been busier than ever. Our goal from the beginning has always been to not just serve the BMX community, but to serve them well and to bring them a one of a kind experience you can't find anywhere else.
Those who have not been to our camp might be surprised to know that Rebel Run is literally in my backyard. While this was a perfect way to start, challenges come with it, the main challenge being the ability to grow and expand. I consider myself extremely blessed to be able to work with such a talented team, who has so many great ideas and visions, and we want to be able to bring these to life and share them with you. With that being said, we are extremely excited to announce there will be a new and improved Rebel Run Sports Camp opening in the summer of 2017.
This project will be done in 3 phases. Phase 1, to be completed by next summer, will consist of the lake, the BMX track and all that goes with that, a straight rhythm pump track, BMX trails, and the pro house. The pro house will be used as lodging for our camps until the completion of Phase 2 and will then open up for pros and top amateurs to live and train on site. Phase 2 will bring the tree house cabins, gym, ropes course, zip lines, and giant swing. Once phase two is complete we will also be operating as a youth camp for churches and organizations all around and in doing so will instantly introduce thousands of kids a year to the sport of BMX.
Phase 3 will bring a 20,000 sq ft indoor skate park and will also update some of the infrastructure such as paving the gravel roads and parking lot. Of course we will never be done building and dreaming up new stuff, but this is what's on the radar right now and what we have to look forward to. There's more good news. It's no secret that for the last 5 or so years Houston BMX has been in a bit of a rut. We owe the crew at Pearland BMX a huge thank you for keeping the sport going and keeping the kids on a track.
Now with Katy BMX up and going and the new 2020 worlds track in the works it seems Houston is quickly moving toward becoming one of the best BMX cities in the country and we want to be a part of that.
The new Rebel Run WILL BE A USA BMX SANCTIONED TRACK. Being located just off of Highway 105 in the heart of Lake Conroe we plan on offering many different programs to cater to all kids, students, and adults. Our programs and schedule will be posted closer to our opening date.
Although we've been open for almost 3 years we feel this is just the beginning for us. We consider it an absolute privilege to be able to share our dreams and visions and to work with every single one of you. We are looking forward to a great year.

Chase BMX Race Report - USABMX Fall Nationals
|Joris Daudet takes the win and is on the podium both days!|
USA BMX 2016 National series had its last stop
before the Grand Nationals, and it was for the Fall
Nationals in Perris, CA.
Joris Daudet was ready to return to racing since his break after the Olympics and a small injury. As Perris is his home track, Joris was feeling good about the big weekend of racing and was ready to do battle with the worlds fastest BMX racers.
On Friday night, Joris rode the Perris track flawlessly, all the way into the AA Pro main event.
Lining up, he was looking to gain some valuable points to take over the USA BMX Points lead, that he has held for most of the season.
When the gate dropped, Joris was able to take the hole shot, and held the lead around the entire track, taking home his 6th USA BMX AA Pro National main event win of the season.
This was a huge night for Joris, as the injury he suffered at the Olympics was defiantly a let down, but this, his first race back since then, showed not only his determination to keep his #1 Plate, but also how well his rehab and training has paid off in just a few short weeks.
On Saturday, it would be another test of the Pro riders, as the longer format of racing would have them at the BMX track for 10 hours, racing with the full day of the USA BMX National.
After a long dry and dusty day, the Pros once again would line up on the gate for the man event, and Joris was once again one of the favorites to line up.
This time, it would be Maris Strombergs who would take the hole shot, with Joris and Anthony Dean battling it our for the 2nd and 3rd place spots for the day.
Joris would have a great bar to bar battle and would need to settle for 3rd for the day, but this score would give him even more points and the overall lead for the USA BMX #1 Pro title by a rather large margin, with just the Race of Champions and USA BMX Grands left to decide the 2016 #1 overall Pro.
Joris now heads into the USA BMX Grands over thanksgiving week and is looking to take his 2nd USA BMX AA Pro title and make 2016 his best year of BMX racing ever!
Make sure to follow @ChaseBicycles and @JorisDaudet to be on the journey to #winwithchase!
Chase BMX is proud to be supported by Linktops, Shimano, Fly Racing, ODI, Tioga BMX, Vans, KMC, Kicker, G-Form, Elevn, Insight, Excess, and Stealth Hubs.

www.WorldOfBMX.com is THE place where you can find a BMX race track if you are traveling, no matter what part of the world you are in. Select your destination and Voila!, you are off to a BMX track near you travel location.
It's also fun to just kind of fly around the world and check out places that you've always kind of wondered about. Have you ever wondered why the Dutch are so fast when it comes to BMX? Well, maybe it's because for such a small country, they have 48 BMX tracks and have 2.832 Active BMX tracks per One Million people! Ha! Now there's a fun BMX fact for ya! You can search out all of that kind of info on www.WorldOfBMX.com, no problem!
How bout the biggest countries for BMX? Well, the USA may weigh in with the largest total of track on WorldOfBMX.com with 336, but the tiny country of Curacao reigns supreme when it comes to "Track Per Million" with a TPM factor of 20.431 per one million folks! Of course, that's because they have three tracks with a very small island population, but you get the angle, right? Run those numbers on WorldOfBMX.com and see for your self, you might be surprised at the results.

HOUSTON AWARDED 2020
UCI BMX WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Event to be hosted at brand-new North Houston Bike Park
DOHA, Qatar-Union Cyclist International / UCI announced today that Houston, Texas, has been selected as the site of the 2020 UCI BMX World Championships. The Harris County - Houston Sports Authority worked in conjunction with the United States Olympic Committee, USA Cycling, USA BMX and Greenspoint Redevelopment Authority to present the winning bid to the UCI.
The Championship event will take place May 26-May 31, 2020 at North Houston Bike Park. North Houston Bike Park, currently under construction, is part of a 30-acre extreme sports complex including a world-class BMX Race Track, concrete vert features, street course, pump tracks, tot track, bike trails and an outdoor events center that can seat approximately 3,500 guests. Janis Burke, Harris County - Houston Sports Authority, CEO said, "We are incredibly excited to be awarded the UCI BMX World Championships. Houston's brand-new North Houston Bike Park is truly impressive with great offerings and appealing fan fest areas than can be utilized in the green spaces surrounding the park. We are looking forward to building our cycling community with these facilities."
Adjacent to the Bike complex is North Houston Skate Park, the largest skate park in North America, featuring over 78,000 square feet of skateable surface, and Dylan Park, a park designed for children of varying abilities. The skate park had over 120,000 visitors this year, including skaters from 23 different countries. Sally Bradford, Executive Director of the Greenspoint Redevelopment Authority, said, "We are excited to host this incredible event and invite the world to enjoy this wonderful complex."
"I have no doubt that Houston will provide an exquisite route for riders to compete on, as well as provide outstanding hospitality to the athletes and guests," said Derek Bouchard-Hall, President / CEO of USA Cycling.
"USA BMX is absolutely thrilled that the UCI BMX World Championships will once again return to the US," stated USA BMX CEO, Bernard Anderson. "The North Houston Bike Park is going to be revolutionary in action sports and the participants of the World Championships will be treated to both an amazing venue and incredible Texas hospitality. We look forward to welcoming the world's best BMX riders to Houston."
BMX is cycling's newest Olympic discipline and is experiencing outstanding growth. Its popularity is widespread and UCI BMX World Championships have been organized in countries on five different continents. US Olympic Committee CEO, Scott Blackmun, said, "The USOC has worked diligently to be a meaningful partner in the worldwide Olympic Movement and the Harris County - Houston Sports Authority has been a great partner in this effort. I look forward to working with them in the run-up to 2020 UCI BMX World Championships."
The UCI BMX World Championships are held annually to crown a BMX World Cycling Champion and are expected to bring 3,000 amateur participants and 300 professional athletes from over 40 countries. Participants and their families are estimated to stay an average of 10 days in Houston. The UCI BMX World Championships will be the last stop before the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

|J&B Importers Acquire|
MIAMI, FLORIDA - August 15, 2016 - J&B
Importers has acquired Alienation, the Mill
Valley, CA based BMX aftermarket and OEM
component brand best known for penetrating
the BMX market with the first front specific
BMX rim, and for its wheel systems using TCS
(Tubeless Compatible System), licensed from
Alienation will continue to operate independently with its existing management team led by industry veteran, Zach Taylor. The transaction is effective immediately. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We see a tremendous opportunity in the Alienation brand and look forward to continuing the development of TCS compatible products. Moving the wheel building process in-house will allow us to quickly adapt spec, control quality, and provide healthy margins for the IBD." said Mitch Gurdjian, co-chief executive officer of J&B.
Taylor, Alienation's founder, will continue to lead operations in to the foreseeable future. Order processing for Alienation products will be intergrated within J&B's existing system. Alienation's supply chain will remain largely unchanged.
"We started Alienation ten years ago to offer inherently better products," Taylor said. "We have had amazing success to date and are excited about joining forces with J&B. J&B has a significant reach within the IBD, making them a natural fit. We look forward to further propelling forward with tubeless within BMX. We have some exciting new developments. We just signed an agreement to utilize Kappius' rear hub internals for BMX. I am really excited by these developments."
In the 2017 model year, brands including Haro/Premium, Kink and Redline will feature Alienation rims on upcoming models, according to Taylor. Alienation and Taylor will be attending Interbike in J&B booth #8195.
