The 2017 USA BMX National Series continues as we head into the tail-end of the season with this past weekend’s stop at the new, improved Metro BMX Track in Bakersfield, California for the Fall Nationals. Our Full US Junior Devo Team line-up made the trip out to Bakersfield in hopes of grabbing a few more points heading into Reno the weekend of October 13-15th and the Grands in Tulsa over Thanksgiving weekend.
Payton Ridenour was riding strong even though the results didn’t show it. Bad luck struck for the P-Nut crashing out both days in the mains, while batting it out. Still, thankfully, no injuries and we know she will come back strong as she always does.
Noah Ramos and Colin Whittington rode consistently both days. Both made the main events and Colin had his best ride with a 2nd and Noah with a 4th Sunday.
Kamren Larsen was riding on his home track and with lots of family and friends track-side he was looking to put the hammer down, which he surely did, easily winning both days in a highly competitive 17-18x class continuing a great season.
As always, a big thanks to all our Team Sponsors for supporting our program and we look to finishing off the season strong.
