The DHR team just got back from a successful week down in Florida.
We started the week with a clinic tour hitting numerous tracks with our first stop in Miami. We worked our way up to Orlando with a stop over in West Palm Beach along the way. It was great to branch out on our grass roots program and to make it to the East Coast and have the opportunity to both meet and ride with lots of new folks from beginners right up to a lot of older riders make a reentry into the sport with their kids. We’ve built some great relationships with riders and families and are already making another trip back next year and adding more stops to our clinic tour. Big thanks to Miami BMX, Okeeheelee and Orlando BMX for the warm welcome. And, also a special thanks to Terry Smith and his family for their hospitality and for helping us organize the Miami clinic on the first leg of our tour.
The week of clinics were a lead into the USA BMX Disney Cup – a three day National in Kissamimee.
As the team prepared for the weekend race festivities, we were all welcomed at our good friend Craig Holland’s vacation rental property where the entire Chase team posted up for the remainder of the week. Special thanks to Craig for taking good care of us.
Our Vet Pro, Cristian Becerine, continued a great year by hitting the podium all three days – with two 1st place showings and a 2nd – giving him the Overall Disney Cup Win.
Anthony Dean, our Elite Rider, was back on his bike for the first time since his crash in Chula Vista last month. But despite a few aches and pains and swollen knee, Anthony had a solid weekend against the World’s best – making the main events all three days and finished the weekend off on a great note with a 3rd place on the podium on Sunday.
The team now has a few weeks off before we head out to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Grand Nationals to wrap up an already successful year.
