Last week we did our first Team photo shoot with both BMX Plus Magazine and a couple of our sponsors, Chase and ANSWR over at Bellflower BMX in So-Cal. It was great to get everyone together- great team bonding and a chance for the guys to have fun riding while grabbing some shots at the same time.
It’s been a great start to the Season for the Chase / Stay Strong Team. We really couldn’t have asked for a better start to the year. First of all, our new AA/Elite rider, Anthony Dean, represented us well at the first few rounds of the Australian National Series down under in Nerang – Queensland. Anthony hit the podium all three days with (2) 1st’s and a 2nd – a solid start to Anthony’s year for sure. After spending some time with the Australian National Team training, Anthony plans to head back to the US to continue preparing for both the USABMX and UCI seasons.
Over in the US, it was the USABMX Season Opener in Reno, Nevada, where both Cristian Becerine and Bryce Betts made their team debut. A great weekend for both guys with Cristian walking away with 2 wins and Bryce securing a solid 3rd in the highly competitive 17/18 Expert class. In short, another great weekend for the team.
The first stop of our Clinic Tour kicks off on Saturday, Feb 1st, at Freedom Park BMX in Camarillo, Ca from 1-3p.m. – the entire team will be present. Please see our posted Clinic Flyer for further details. Hope to see you there.
Special thanks to all of our sponsors for their support of our team : Chase, Insight, Excess, Elevn, Kingstar, Stay Strong, Vee Tire co., Wal*Mart, Barona Resort & Casino, Answer Racing, Shimano, ODI, KMC, Kicker, Stealth.
A great finish to the weekend with another win for Anthony Dean on Day #3 down under in Australia for the Nerang Nationals. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to the year and our new program. In addition to Anthony’s results we’ve had a lot of positive feedback from everyone over the last few days and I share all of our thanks to all for that. It goes without saying that it’s been a lot of work to get this going but with a simple goal and plan to work hard all year and grow the program, I’m confident we’ll get there.
Great thanks to our sponsors and supporters who have made this possible. Cheers to an unforgettable 2014.
