First stop on the USA BMX Elite series kicked off this past weekend over in Phoenix Arizona for the traditional Winter Nationals at Black Mountain BMX, which has been on the ABA/USA BMX calendar since the early 80s. If you know anything about race history in the U.S., then you’ll surely have heard of some of the iconic Nationals & stories from over the years at Black Mountain.
With Anthony Dean still working his way back up to speed after injury, he was not in Arizona and will miss round 2 next week in Oldsmar, Florida but will be back on the gate ready to race next month for the first World Cup of the year in Argentina – he’s already itching to go.
Dani George has put in a solid winter’s training at the Olympic Training Center with Coach Greg Romero and it showed with a 3rd Friday night backed up with a 2nd place come Saturday during the mains. With Dani still in a building phase in her training for the summer, it’s great to start the season with 2 Podiums and renewed motivation for the year.
Team Manager, Dale Holmes, decided to race this weekend for a little fun finishing up with a 3rd place Friday night against the old guys who are still very competitive at this level.
In all, a good start to the year for the team. It was nice for the team to break out the new Stay Strong pits area for the season and to get to represent all of the team’s new sponsors. Next up, the team has a photo shoot this week with the 100 Percent guys and Dani heads off to Oldsmar, Florida for the next stop on the USA BMX Tour and US National Championships this coming weekend.
