J&B Importers acquires
Alienation BMX!
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 WTB.

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 build 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 into the foreseeable future. Order processing for Alienation products will be integrated 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,” said Taylor. “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’s 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

BMX RACING NEWS - THURSDAY - JULY 7, 2016


The owners of ANSWER BMX and Ssquared Bicycles are excited to announce the formation of their new parent company, Advantage Bike Corp to oversee operations, branding, and sales of not just those brands but several new brands moving forward.  Clayborn Bikes, ANSR Race Wear for the BMX market, and the soon to be released Solution Race Products component brand will all fall under the ownership of Advantage Bike Corporation, to be known as ABC.  

In addition to those brands, ABC will also become the USA sales and marketing management forStaats Bicycles and Ciari Parts brands.   “The BMX race market is a very unique and rapidly evolving industry with customers that are extremely brand loyal and demanding of the brands they choose to use.  We realize that not every racer out there wants an Ssquared Bike or ANSWER BMX parts, therefore, why not have a “menu” of sorts with different options and styles to support the diverse BMX race market?” stated Ryan Birk of ANSWER BMX.  

“By offering several different frame and component options and continuing to offer the same level of quality, service, and market branding that people have to come to expect from Ssquared and ANSWER, we feel we now have something to offer everyone, keeping in mind each brand has their own unique style, quality, and image.  We have plans for a new complete line of Ssquared Bicycles complete bikes, the launch of the new Solution parts brand, and new Clayborn frames in the works."  

"We are also happy to work with the owners of Staats Bicycles and Ciari Parts to help them grow their brand.  We are also continuing to work with ANSR Motocross to handle the distribution of their race wear in the BMX market globally.  Obviously by adding these new brands to our portfolio we are looking at the big picture and preparing for significant growth, hence the need to form the ABC Corporation.” Birk continued.

Advantage Bike Corporation will remain based in Palm Harbor Florida and plans are in place to increase staff, infrastructure, and resources to complete brand integration for all the separate individual brands.  

New websites are currently under construction for the new ABC company as well as each individual brands respective website.

CHASE BMX'S, JORIS DAUDET IS THE NEW UCI BMX ELITE MEN’S WORLD CHAMPION!
 

After a great season with multiple wins on the USA BMX Pro Series tour and some great results on the UCI BMX Supercross season, Joris Daudet wins the biggest race of the season (so far) at the 2016 UCI BMX World Championships.

 
 

Joris started the weekend off as being one of the early standouts on the ultra technical track during the various training sessions. Once things kicked off for the Time Trail, Joris was the 2nd fastest rider in the TT qualifier race but when the Medal round came around, one small mistake caused Joris to crash, eliminating a chance to repeat the the Time Trial World Champion.

 
 

When racing kicked off on Sunday thought, Joris was out for redemption, as he was out front each and every race of the day, leading up to the Main event. Once the gate dropped, Joris had his best start of the entire event, and he would need it to hold off the hard charge from last years World Champ Niek Kimmann. Joris was able to ride another incredible lap around the toughest track of the season, hold off any charge from Niek, and take the 2016 UCI BMX World Championship title! It was a great night of racing and for Joris to earn his 2nd Elite Mens World Title, its puts his name in the record books as one of the best BMX Pro riders of all time!

 
As always, thanks to our incredible group of partners and supporters of the Chase BMX Pro team!

UCI King Of Prague 2016!
Photo by Martin Hůle (Martin Hůle Sport Foto). From left, Elite Men's riders, #307 Tomas Merta (CZE), #500 Renato Resende (BRA) and #994 Julian Schmidt (GER).

The fight is already over, trophies got to their winners, everything is cleaned up and now we are ready to practice for the next session. Its just few days ago, when you could see the best BMX stars in Prague on the BMX track ŘEPY and had a last chance to get a points to the summer Olympic games RIO 2016!

From 13th of May till 15th of May the international race took place in Řepy called the UCI King of Prague 2016. It is a race connecting Czeck-moravian cup with preliminary race to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Photo by Martin Hůle (Martin Hůle Sport Foto). Local hero, #913, Jan Svub (CZE), turned in a 3rd and 1st in Elite Men, making it to the podium both days of the King Of Prague!

There were 15 categories, more than 500 racers from 12 different countries, from the kids to the superfast elite men!

On Friday everybody rolled off to their first training. The weather was amazing and everybody enjoyed it. The elite men got the chance to try the PRO section and it attracted a lot of BMX Fans to watch their skills.

Saturday heats started with six years old kids in 8:30am. The parents cheered for them and support them heart and soul. Sometimes it was too dramatic, but the pressure is understandable. The most difficult moments were ahead.

Photo by Martin Hůle (Martin Hůle Sport Foto). Elite Women's podium.

After all trainings were done, we could start with preliminary races. Step by step the place was getting filled up with the fans. Fortunately the sun didn't leave us, so everybody could enjoy it to the fullest and fight for the best places in the race.

The first quarter-final was watched by almost 1200 people so the racers were pushing the pedals as much as they could. Although there were some crashes and sometimes we needed a little emergency assistance, nothing serious happened.

All of the people were waiting for the Elite men impatiently, because they were the biggest attraction of the whole weekend. Some of the most favourite racers of the weekend were Elite Women, Romana Labounková from Czech Republic and Daniell Vrenegoor from the Netherlands. Jan Švub, Pešek Marcel were representing Czech Republic as well in the Elite Men and they had to compare their skills with amazing riders Renato Rezende from Brazil or Veide Rihards from Latvia. It was a GREAT lineup of World Class BMXers for the BMX Fans!

Photo by Martin Hůle (Martin Hůle Sport Foto). Sunday's Elite Men's podium.

From the ladies the best was Romana Labounková from Jeseníky/Czech Republic, who beat the pants off the collegues Daniëll Vrenegoor from the Netherlands and Regula Runge from Germany.

In ELITE MEN unfortunately Jan Švub wasn't that lucky and he broke his bike frame during the race and he got "just" third place, but he still managed to run off 5 racers. Just Rihards Veide and Luis Brethauer took advantage of his accident and overtook him.

Saturday's Championship Podiums looked like this.....

ELITE MEN: 84 – Rihards Veide – Team Lotyšsko 572 – Luis Brethauer – German National Team 913 – Jan Švub – Bikrosclub Řepy, CZ

ELITE WOMEN & JUNIOR WOMEN: 27 – Romana Labounková – Bikrosklub Jeseník, CZ 40 – Daniëlle Vrenegoor – Netherlands 124 – Regula Runge – Germany

JUNIOR MEN: 145 – Mikuláš Nevrkla – TJ BMX Pardubice, CZ 119 – Jonas Ballbach – Germany 99 – Erik Votava – TJ BMX Pardubice, CZ

On 15th of May we woke up to the beautiful sunny day. Unfortunately after the kids trainings, the weather got worse. Even so, the audince still came to watch the race, so the racers could show off. Because of the rain, the track got slippery, so we saw a lot of crashes.

The racers didn't care that the weather is not nice, they were fighting to the fullest. Although we could see their exhaustion and happiness when they could wrap up. Everybody enjoyed the Elite men again racing over the PRO section where they can jump over 5 metres high. After the preliminary races, we got to the first fights of the final places, which leaded to some of the best achievements, but injuries as well. Our both representans Jan Švub and Romana Labounková got to the FINAL round! Both of them drived the best race we could have ever seen and it brought them to the desired first place.

Thanks to this race the brasilian racer Renato Rezendes, german reppresentant Brethauer qualified to the RIA 2016 and our racer Honza Švub got really nice points, who is really close to it as well.

Sunday's Championship Podiums looked like this.....

ELITE MEN: 913 – Jan Švub – Bikrosclub Řepy, CZ 572 – Luis Brethauer – German National Team 994 – Julian Schmidt – German National Team

ELITE MEN & JUNIOR WOMEN: 27 – Romana Labounková – Bikrosklub Jeseník, CZ 40 – Daniëlle Vrenegoor – Netherlands 124 – Regula Runge – Germany

JUNIOR MEN: 145 – Mikuláš Nevrkla – TJ BMX Pardubice, CZ 119 – Jonas Ballbach – Germany 160 – Sebastian Sulka – Slovak cycling federation

The whole weekend wouldn't be possible without our sponsors: ÚAMK, the capital city Prague (European city of sports 2016), Fany vše pro gastronimii, Praha 17 – Řepy, Impra, Lumen,Klaro, AGE project, Janda Servis, Dáňa, Pergl a partneři, Stěhování, JUMBO, Judr.

BMX Olympic Bronze Medalist, Laëtitia Le Corguillé retires from racing!
Long time International BMXer, Laëtitia Le Corguillé has announced her retirement from BMX Racing and won't get a chance to participate to her third Olympic games... and retires from the sport...

Laëtitia suffered a serious foot injury, Sunday at the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Manchester, UK while making a run at her third Olympics and has ended what has been one of the longest and most successful Elite Women's BMX careers in the sport.

In her own words "I took a while to give news of my ankle because yesterday afternoon was hard to take ... after all, I have a broken calcaneus (heel bone): 2 large fracture above. This is very bad news because even if all goes well, my foot must remain immobilized for 3 months without contact of the heel on the floor ... three months on crutches. It is the end of season for me. I hoped also to finish my career on a high note at the Olympic Games (even if the qualification was not certain yet ). This will not be the case. So you can understand that this injury also announces the end of my career. I took great pleasure in trying to return to the best in the world, I started to get closer but it is the law of sport and bmx. Thank you to the people who supported me. Thank you to the Team France staff , the federation, the Brittany Sport dept., Flo and my little Juliette, my family, R'Vélo Hervé Masson, Laurent Guillon , company race, bemor, the clubs of Saint-brieuc and Saint-Etienne, Romain Riccardi, to my friends who will recognize themselves."

BOX VOLUNTARY FORK REPLACEMENT
Since our inception in 2011, Box Components has been committed to manufacturing the highest quality bicycle components.

Providing racers and riders with the best and safest products on the market has always been our number one goal.

As a result of this and in cooperation with the CPSC, Box Components is offering a voluntary replacement of some of our older BOX carbon fiber BMX forks.

The reason for the replacement is a manufacturing flaw that may result in some steerer tubes becoming loose when turned against resistance on the front wheel of the bicycle.

This flaw poses a potential fall hazard to the rider. There have been no reports of injury as a result of this defect.

Box Components is aware this is inconvenient for our customers, and we appreciate your assistance in helping us replace potentially defective forks from the market.

The fork models that this voluntary replacement applies to are as follows:

• XE 20 inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK13A2010)

• XE 24 inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK13A2410) • XL 20 inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK15A2010)

• XL 24 inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK15A2410)

• XS 20 inch 10mm Dropout Fork (model number BX-FK14A2010)

Qualifying forks have serial numbers of either 140508, 140606 or 140702.

This flaw affects forks sold by Box from January 2015 until July 2015. Forks were also sold on complete model year 2016 bikes from Haro (Team CF Mini, Team CF Junior, Team CF Expert), Redline (Flight Mini, Flight Junior, Flight Expert, Flight Expert XL) and DK (Elite Junior, Elite Expert).

The issue has been corrected through a design change to the steerer tube that eliminates the possibility of the steerer tube turning. All qualifying fork claims will be replaced with current production forks that do not have this flaw.

 
HOW TO CHECK THE FORK
• The forks have a Box logo (See Fig.01)
• The “XE”, “XS” and “XL” Logos are located on the crown of the fork. (See Fig.02)
• The serial number is laser etched on the steerer tube. This number will either be 140508, 140606 or 140702. (See Fig.03)
• Forks have 3/8 in drop-outs not 20mm drop-outs. (See Fig.04)

If the fork model and serial number match the information provided above, the fork is eligible for replacement.

Consumers should take their fork to their nearest local bike shop for inspection. If the fork is eligible for the recall, the bike shop will work with Box Components to replace the fork.

Chase BMX Pro, Connor Fields Hits The Podium In UCI SX Argentina
Connor Fields Finishes 2nd at the opening round of the 2016 UCI BMX World Cup Season!

Chase BMX Race Report - UCI BMX World Cup #1 - Santiago Del Estero, Argentina

The 2016 UCI BMX World Cup series is the gateway to the Olympic games for BMX racers, so the 2016 season is the most important races for a rider looking to make their way into the games. The Chase BMX Pro team headed into the year with the World Cups as their main focus, along with the USA BMX events and the season is now upon us. Stop #1 would take the team to Argentina, and Connor Fields, Joris Daudet, Romain Mahieu, and Stefany Hernandez would all take to the event with winning the main event as their goal.
 

Things would kick off with the Time Trail events, where Connor and Joris would finish 4th & 5th. Stefany would unfortunately end her weekend during her run, as a crash into the 2nd turn would knock her out and she would sustain a slight concussion.

 

On race day, Connor, Joris, and Romain rode strong throughout the qualifying rounds and would make their way into the 1/8th finals. This would be where Romain ended his day of racing. Joris and Connor would make their way through the 1/4 finals and into the semis. Connor would win his semi, where Joris, was in a qualifying position, would bump with another rider in turn 2 and lose his qualifying spot, leaving Connor as the lone rider from the team into the main event.

 

In the main event, Connor had an all out drag race with eventual winner Corben Sharrah from the USA, and as edged out at the line, taking 2nd for the day. With this great result for Connor, he starts off the World Cup season on a positive note, and now he and the rest of the USA Cycling team head direct to Manchester, UK to prepare for the 2nd round of the UCI BMX World Cup tour in 2 weeks.

 

Joris, Stefany, and Romain will all join Connor at the next stop in Manchester, UK and you can watch it all live on www.BMXlive.tv, all 3 days of the event.

BOX Releases Vector M30-M Cranks for Little Racers
ANAHEIM, CA—BOX Components, makers of high-performance BMX and mountain bike components, is excited to announce that the long-awaited mini/junior Vector M30-M cranks are now available. The Vector M30-M cranks share oversize design principals with the original Vector M35 cranks, but they are scaled down to fit the needs of 5-to-10-year old riders.

Vector M30-M cranks have a cold-forged, 30-millimeter, 7075 aluminium-alloy, Praxis M30 spindle that fits frames with European and BB86/92 bottom brackets, as well as BB30 and PF30. They have hollow-forged arms and a 104 BCD, four-bolt spider.

Each set of Vector M30-Ms includes a Praxis external, M30, European bottom bracket that fits frames with European bottom bracket shells. Compatible BB86/92 and BB30/PF30 bottom brackets are sold separately and available from Praxis directly.

An independent test lab compared a range of cranks to the Vector M35 and the Vector M30-P. Both proved to be stiffer than anything on the market, with the M35s about 10 percent stiffer. It’s safe to assume the M30-Ms are the stiffest little-kid crank out there.

“We believe the Vector cranks are the way to go for any serious BMX racer. While the M35s are the ultimate BMX race crank, the M30-Ps are stiffer than anything else out there. And the M30-Ms are far stiffer than any other crankset for mini and junior riders,” said Max Wunderlich, BOX’s BMX director.

The M30-M cranks come in matte black with laser-etched graphics in 145, 150 and 155 lengths. Suggested retail price for both is $399.

Chase BMX Race Report - USA BMX Winter Nationals

2016 USA BMX Season Opener - Joris picks right back up with 2 wins at the Winter Nationals

 

With the kick off of the 2016 USA BMX Pro Series race season, it was the first time that the 2015 #1 Pro Joris Daudet would be back on the track in the USA. Joris had just returned from Colombia where he finished off his pre season training with a camp on the 2016 World Championship track. Joris was the long Chase BMX Pro in Phoenix, AZ for the USA BMX Winter Nationals, but his results for the weekend of racing was huge!

Day 1 saw 44 Elite Men racers take to the famed Black Mountain BMX track, where blazing fast speeds usually match the temperature in the Arizona desert. Joris started the day off strong and continued to rage fast and smart through the the day, all the way into the night, for the Main event. Once the gate dropped, the race battle was among the top 3 riders - Joris, Sam Willoughby, and Nic Long. Joris took the early lead and held off the charge from Sam the entire track, with Nic just behind the 2. Joris would take the day 1 Elite Men's main event wire to wire!

 

Day 2 saw 38 riders on track, but not any less of the fast and action packed race action. Once again, Joris rode flawlessly all day, again advancing into the main event. This time, it would be a challenge from a young rider from Argentina, Gonzalo Molina, who was trying to close on Joris, but he was no match for the ultra fast USA BMX #1 Pro. Nic Long would once again take the 3rd.

 
A perfect weekend for Joris on the famed Black Mountain track, but more importantly, a perfect was to start off the chase to keep the USA BMX #1 Pro title. Joris will head off to Oldsmar, Florida next weekend, where he will meet up with teammate Connor fields, where they both will be hitting the 8 meter starting hill for the first time of year, as its 2nd round of the USA BMX Pro series tour, but this time on the Supercross style track.
