04/14/2013 - KTVZ News Redmond, Oregon USA - BMX Riders Compete In Redmond Races.



Hundreds of BMX riders took to the Hooker Creek Event Center at the Deschutes County
Fairgrounds this weekend. It was the return of the BMX Northwest National race. Nearly
300 competitors got on their bikes and flipped over dirt jumps as they tried to outrace each
other. BMX is short for bicycle motocross racing. It recently became an Olympic sport,
starting in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and continued in the London Olympics last year.
"We are really getting mainstream exposure now because it's an Olympic sport," Brad Halin,
senior track director for BMX USA, said Sunday. "The growth has been phenomenal because
of that." The sport originated after kids were trying to emulate their motocross heroes on
their bikes outdoors, and it evolved into the sport it is today. There are 13 BMX USA tracks
in Oregon, two of them in Bend and Redmond. ( More )

Look no further than the guy or gal sitting next to you to find a former BMX champion.
Thats how I discovered a friend, Justin Cerna, was a national champ at nine years old
and interested in guiding me at the Great Northwest Nationals happening this weekend
at the Deschutes County Expo Center.

As a first time observer to BMX racing, I enjoyed taking in as much as possible about
the races. The Expo Center was converted into a serpentine course: dirt trucked in to
form bumps, burms and whoops, a regularly watered course, an automated starting gate,
and sponsor flags flying. ( MORE )

Hundreds Of BMXers At Weekend Tournament;
The USA BMX Great Northwest Nationals is being put on in Redmod by the sanctioning
body of the sport of bicycle motocross in the United States and Canada.

Competitors from all over both countries Canada took part Saturday morning and afternoon.
The ages of the riders varied from as young as 2 to as old as 61. Brad Hallin used to ride
and says he loved that it was an individual sport and yet the whole family could do as well.

Its been that wave of guys who did it in the 70s. like me, and then weve had kids, brought our
kids out, and now were experiencing that boom again, said Hallin, the senior track detector.
I love that its an individual sport, and yet the.whole family can get involved. The USA BMX
has 380 tracks throughout the country including ones in Redmond and Bend.

One of the nice things about the Redmond track is the dirt, according to the organizers.
Workers prepare the facility a week in advance and say the race tracks here turn out outstanding.

Longtime great northwest bmx pride and joy Eric Meyer makes a comeback
at the great northwest nationals after being off the bike for nearly 7 years.
Eric is trying to go for National Age Group # 1 this year in the 26-30 cruiser
class. Eric got the holeshot Saturday and was looking good for the win and then
made a small mistake on the jump going into the first corner where AZ homeboy
Brandon Panuchio took over the lead from that point. It looked like Eric Meyer
was going to make a pass to get the lead back in the rhythym section and the
final corner but couldn't make anything stic so settled for the 2nd place.

02/25/2011 -- The Road To 2011 ABA BMX Great Northwest Nationals.



Lots of People on the way to Redmond to the Great Northwest Nationals
say; Some of the worst roads and pure hell just to get there. A winter storm
in the Pacific Northwest, Oregon cascades including Dufur, Madras, Maupin,
Moro, Prineville, Redmond, Bend, La pine, brought in snow and cold temps.

Some people opped out of going to the BMX Nationals event saying it is just
not worth the rough drive and conditions. But some made the cold trip anyway.
February may not a good idea for the Great Northwest Nationals due to weather.
Some people saying Maybe the Great Northwest Nationals should be moved back
to the end of March or in the summer time. - Good luck to everyone in Redmond.

03/30/2010 -- BMX Road Rash Is A Painful Reality But Common.


This past weekend, at the ABA BMX Great Northwest Nationals in
Redmond, medical staff from Desert Orthopedics in Bend, treated
some 50 riders for symptoms of what cyclists know as road rash.

In BMX (bicycle motocross) or mountain biking, road rash is really
a misnomer, as the skin abrasion can be the result of skidding across
dirt or gravel as well as across pavement.

In any case, road rash is a painful but common part of cycling BMX.

03/22/2010 - The Great Northwest Nationals BMX Track Taking Shape:

The Great Northwest Nationals only days away. So many racers, do not
know what goes on behind the scenes to get ready for a national race.
While many of the nationals are hosted on existing tracks, there are
several, like this week ends Great Northwest Nationals, that are built
from the ground up in time for the event.



Sunday night is a good nights sleep. First thing Monday morning
as two huge Tonka loaders are moved in. First up, the 3500 plus
cubic yards of dirt must be shuttled from storage into the arena,
one bucket at a time. Quickly though, the track begins to take shape.

Billy the Builder is in the house! With the help of Lance McGuire,
they hit the ground running and before the end of day one you can
clearly make out the corners and more than half the dirt from
storage has been moved inside. More help begins to arrive.

Trucker Rich,moved in the big rig today coming straight from
Desoto Texas and last weekend's races. The crew (Greg, Woody,
Dan, Dustin, and even local rider Taylor Stephens) are ready
with rake and broom to attend to the grooming and shaping.

Bill Morris is keeping an eye out that all runs smoothly.
He tells us this is one of the easy builds.

This weekend more than 1,000 riders plus family and friends,
will descend upon Hooker Creek Event Center in Redmond
Oregon for the third hosting of the Great Northwest Nationals.

The area hotels say they are full and the campgrounds near
capacity as we ready for the weekend's action. Watch for racks
and racks of exciting amateur racing, A-pros, and likely some
sidehacks bumping bars.

There are great vendors heading to town like Riders, local favorite
BMX Hex, Evolution Clothing, Smiley Face Jakes, Tracy Stephens
Photo, and of course ABA race wear will be on hand. Saturday night
will be the 2nd annual Golden Tongs Cook-off as BMX teams and
families compete for the king of the grill title. Three days of exciting
northwest action is ready to rumble this weekend!

My main event on Saturday, believe it or not, was a points race.
I was tied with the other guy for first. I had a horrible start and
first straight, so I decided to jump the doubles coming out of the
first corner I landed it, but it was ugly. I took second on Saturday:

On Sunday, we had 5 in our class I made my main on the first moto! During
the main, I took it a little more seriously than Saturday and stayed on the
ground smile It took me 25 years, but finally got a first place at a national.

ABA BMX Great Northwest Nationals Returning To Redmond.


2009 ABA BMX Great NW Nationals Preview YouTube Video


Oregon Sports Authority --
The ABA (American Bicycle Association) has signed a three-year
extension to keep the ABA BMX Great Northwest Nationals bicycle
motocross (BMX) competition at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds
in Redmond, Oregon. The 2009 event, presented by Team BMX Oregon
and the Oregon Sports Authority, will be held at the Hooker Creek
Event Center April 3rd - 5th, 2009.

The 2008 Great Northwest Nationals had over 1,200 riders from
across the country competing in numerous age divisions. Attendance
for the three-day festival was well over 8,000. The Great Northwest
Nationals is part of the ABAs national series, which spans across
the U.S. and Canada.

The 2008 Great Northwest Nationals in the Hooker Creek Event Center
at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds was amazing. With record numbers
in 2008, we are very excited about the continued growth and expansion
of this great event for the next three years. This new multiyear
agreement could not have been realized without the support of Team
Oregon BMX and the Oregon Sports Authority, said John David,
director of new track development of the ABA.

The Hooker Creek Event Center, a multi-purpose indoor arena,
is the largest of the buildings at the Fairgrounds that constitutes
some 279,000 square feet of space under one roof. The complex
has hosted over 100 sporting and entertainment events each year.
The variety of events includes, but not limited to, professional sports,
concerts, monster trucks, and supercross.

The excellent response from the Central Oregon community and the
overwhelming turnout of riders from the American Bicycle Association
to bringing the Great Northwest Nationals to Redmond made this a
wonderful experience, said Tracy Stephens of Team BMX Oregon.

Team BMX Oregon is proud to be part of hosting this event showcasing
a fabulously exciting sport open to amateur and professional biking
enthusiasts alike. There is truly no more beautiful a location than
that of the Hooker Creek Event Center amidst the beautiful Cascades.

We look forward to growing stronger and bigger
as a sport and community in the upcoming years.

We are delighted that the ABA BMX Great Northwest Nationals will
be returning to Redmond for the next three years, said Drew Mahalic,
chief executive officer of the Oregon Sports Authority. - The event
is a terrific opportunity for Oregonians to watch some of the top BMX
racers in the country for free. We are looking forward to growing the
sport of BMX in Oregon.

03/19/2009 - BMX Event To Bolster Local Economy.



Redmond, Oregon
Central Oregon is poised to capitalize on a sport thats exploding
in popularity, hosting the BMX Great Northwest Nationals next
month for the second straight year.

The region has two BMX race tracks, Smith Rock BMX at the High
Desert Sports Complex in Redmond and High Desert BMX at Big Sky
Park in Bend. The bicycle racing sport hosts events across the West,
but recent efforts from a group of local BMX enthusiasts finally
convinced the sports sanctioning body, American Bicycle Association,
to come to Oregon. - ( More )

this weekend. You guys should be very proud of yourselves, everyone rode

It was also great to see the Walkers (our Oregon riders) again.

Gene`s BMX Report - 2007 Northwest Nationals Pasco, Wa.
We did not go to Pasco this year for a number of reasons. One,
the pocket book is low of cash, that keeps us from doing much.
And Two, Due to lack of information by the ABA BMX it realy
makes you think twice about going to the Pasco event.

Alot of people looked to Gene`s BMX with alot of questions about
the 2007 Northwest Nationals. Alot of the questions did not get any
answers due to the lack of event information by the ABA BMX. We
do hope that the people that did go to the Pasco event had lots of fun.
Gene`s BMX is sorry that we could not be at this BMX event this year.
Maybe others will be nice and share some photos and reports with us.

Gene`s BMX hopes that we can go to the Pasco event next year 08.
Till then, Keep the rubber side down and ride that BMX bike hard.

[ ABA/BMX Mar 9,10, 2007 Contact: Clayton John 480-961-1903
Description: Please contact the promoter for further information ]

But still nothing said about "Admission Fees$", - Hmmmm

Just incase - Better to be safe than unsafe and sorry...................

As said in last post,
Still no word about if there is a "Admission Fee$" for the public at
the Trac Arena. Alot of people are asking questions about if there
is or is not? Gene`s BMX has sent a few e-mails and phone calls
to the ABA BMX and the Trac Arena since Nov 2006 but still NO
reply e-mails or return phone calls back letting us know anything.
If anyone knows anything about "Admission Fee$", please let us know.

Im going to "GUESS" that there is no fee :
I hate to be giving out mis-info to people
as it gets alot of people upset.

So Im going to say, to be safe, "Be Prepared " thats the BoyScout
motto, slogan: - Take a few extra bucks to the Pasco bmx event
Just incase - Better to be safe than unsafe and sorry...................

The Trac Arena web site shows March 9th - 11th 2007
that the Tri-Cities Antique Show will be at the Trac Arena.
The Antique Show at the Trac Arena online flyer:
$6.00 Adults 9 & up FREE for children 8 & under
Admission is good for all 3 days | FREE Parking

But as of this post, The Trac Arena web site does NOT show
or list anything about the 2007 ABA Great Northwest Nationals.
It makes you wonder whats up here since the Trac Arena don`t
even know or list anything about the ABA BMX event. Hmmm!

Some Chit Chat Talk In The BMX GrapeVine:
A few people have quoted that since year 2007 is "NOT" a Pro Race Event
at Pasco, That they are thinking of not going to the event becouse of this.
Some are saying: "Why go if you can`t meet a Pro" and some people have
mixed feelings on rather to go or not to go. - Its a decision maker for you.

In some other news that buts in to the Pasco Great Northwest Nationals event,
The Seattle International Bicycle Expo in Seattle, Wa March 10th - 11th, 2007
at the Warren G. Magnuson Park, this is a complete celebration of Bicycling -
with presentations from all aspects of the bicycling sport and the bike Industry.

With the Schedules of the two big bicycling events in Washington state, The NW,
landing on the same weekend, - It is a big decision maker on what event to go to.
Are we feeling like Harry Houdini? do you think you can be in two places at once?

Re: 2007 ABA Great Northwest Nationals in Pasco, Washington

A few emails asking Gene`s BMX if there is a "Admission Fee$" for
the public since the Trac Arena now has a new name, its called the
( Trac Center ) and alot has changed over the last year. As of this
date, nothing is said via the Trac Center web site about the event.

So does anyone out there know the answer to this one,
Is there an Admission Fee$ just to go watch the BMX event?
Also, NO Lumber Jack Nationals listed on the 2007 ABA Schedule?
Please give Gene`s BMX a email and let us know, if you know.

Randy was coming off a strong result from the last ABA National,
where he placed 1st and 2nd in AA Pro. Randy had missed first
two rounds of the ABA Pro series due to a hand injury, but to
watch him race in Pasco you would never known he missed a beat
of his training or riding. On Saturday, Stumpy was one of the
standout pros in attendance and once the main events started,
he really shined. ( More )

A short and simple track made for some super horse power
type racing from the Pros, with some of the fastest lap times
in ABA National history. With just over 200 moto's the weather
outside was just a bit nippy over the weekend, but the enclosed
arena made for some perfect racing conditions.

13 AA Pros made the trip to Pasco, for a light Pro turnout,
but the riders who were there were some of today's fastest
riders. Randy Stumpfhauser was the lone Double A Marketing
rider in attendance, but he sure had a stand out weekend. ( More )

Oh - Just incase you did not know about it out, Gene`s BMX did
upgrade on cameras to the better. Photos shot at Pasco this
year - using a Kodak Easyshare DX6490 Zoom Digital Camera.
Cool hay? - Hope you all like the photos........

Gene`s BMX took a trip to the Northwest Nationals this year of 2006
The drive was fun from Wenatchee to Pasco, It was nice and sunny.
I hope eveyone elses travle trips to and from Pasco was safe aswell.

The Pasco track this year 2006 was backwards from what has been seen in
the past few years at Pasco. For some reason 2006 was the year for some
wipe outs at Pasco. No ER reports herd of or seen or reported but alot of
slick turns making for a few good spills. MR Greg Gamble an ABA BMX
track official, got a good work out trying to keep the bmx track smooth
after all the spills.

As always - it was way cool to see all of the BMX Pros like
Bubba Harris, Eric Rupe, Randy Stumpfhauser, Nate Berkheimer.
and all of the cool action they do, WOW! Also it is always nice
to see all of the other bmx riders from all over like Bryan Gamble
and lots more show off there bmx action. - Cool Job everyone.

No Schwinn this year at Pasco :( boo hoo.....
It was sad not seeing any bmx riders for the Schwinn team this year.
Now that I think about, Schwinn don`t even have a BMX team for 2006.

It was nice to see some of the people I knew in Pasco, some new faces
and some old faces. There was alot of people I met, the name list is
so long, So I dont miss anyones name, - you all know who you where,
It was nice to meet all of you at the Northwest Nationals this year.

The 2006 ABA BMX Great Northwest Nationals In Pasco Washington
was a big success. I hope we can do it the same next year in 2007.
Till then, Keep the rubber side down and ride that BMX bike hard.

PS -

*** Factory Team SINZ Wins Washington State Race ***



While many teams are focused only to winning factory team competitions
at the Nationals, Team SINZ isnt afraid to go to the local and state
events not only to race, but to have fun and in the process win a few
team titles.

Team SINZ was put together for the fun of the sport, but now it seems we
have awoke some silent giants, as the team keeps turning out 1st place
finishes and on this weekend a win in the Factory Team Competition.

I think its a combination of the family atmosphere, no pressure race
situation, and great parts and bikes that have made Team SINZ a force
to be reckoned with at the races. noted by Team Manager Steve Fritz.

Patrick Underwood also stated We really have motivated the kids with
this great opportunity to become a member of the SINZ factory team. We
want to say thanks to SINZ for the chance and let them know there are
plenty more wins to come along with this one.

Look for the team to be ready for another win and in full force at the
upcoming ABA Great North West Nationals in Pasco, Washington in
early March.

Mongoose Bicycles ABA BMX Pasco Wa Race Report



The weekend of March 19th & 20th was the ABA Pasco Washington
National, where Joey Bradford, Mongoose's amateur BMX Racer
was scheduled to race.

A short indoor track that is becoming more
and more popular each year and this year didnt disappoint with just under
200 motos. The 15 expert class was one of the largest with 32 riders on
Saturday and 29 on Sunday. Joey's weekend started off a little rough when
he noticed that his front shocks on his MTB weren't holding air just before
crusier practice. This made it impossible for Joey to ride, so unfortunately
he had to pull out of crusier for the weekend and decided just to race class
on Saturday, class and open on Sunday.

Saturday went extremely well; he dominated his class in every
round and took an easy win in the main on his Mongoose / Hyundai.

Sunday started out much like Saturday breezing through the rounds when
some hard racing luck hit. During the semi in class, the plastic platform
around the pedal broke during the race causing him to unclip and race with
a bad pedal, but still got back up to 4th only to get moved back to 5th in
the last turn. In the main event in Open, the repair job didn't hold up and
limped the bike to the finish line.

Joey was disappointed on Sunday, but still got his 3rd big rider count
main event win for the young season on his quest for Amateur number 1.
With a new set of pedals, he is looking forward to this weekend's NBL
National in Orlando and defending his National Championship.

(Phantom-On Trac squeaked the win by only 2 points!)
Then the team backed it up with a 4th on Sunday

Linder riders made a strong statement this weekend, proving that they are
contenders for that TOP Factory spot. With 19 riders competing in over 30
classes each day throughout the weekend, this was the team to beat! And
with the support of Moms, Dads, Grandparents and friends, the Linder/Staats

Redline Bicycles ABA Great Northwest National Report Pasco, WA.



You want to know what the talk was about at the Great Northwest Nationals?
We'll tell you ... Bubba Harris holding off Prokop to win AA-pro both days.
Bubba Harris doing backflips on the second double, each day. And the majority
of the AA's sitting this race out to have a backyard BBQ BMX event.

While many pros opted to chase Stumpy 'round his backyard for a chance
at $1,500 -- Bubba took the $1,000 wins both days, and put on a show
in front of thousands of racers and spectators. With an autograph line
reaching down the bleachers and down the aisle, we suppose it's our
Team riders' dedication such as this to national racing that helps make
Redline the No.1 bike in BMX racing.



With two more wins to his already huge Pro points lead,
Harris has his sights set on breaking the Jackal's 24-win record.

North West BMX - ABA BMX Great Northwest National Report



Those of you who were planning for Pasco and decided not to go
really missed a great National. A lot of people were scared of
snow but the weather was beautifull the racing was good and
those who did go I never heard a complaint except for bad food
service and terrible coffee. The track was quite smooth and a
pretty fair layout which made for some good racing.

WOW!!! What an awesome weekend. 196 motos on Sat, 189 on Sun.
I think that is a Great Northwest National record at the TRAC facility.
A lot of Eastern Washington riders did very well. Some got their first
taste of National Level riding. But, everyone had a blast cheering for
each other, yelling ourselves hoarse. Thanks to the ABA for an efficient,
well run event. 2006 is only 51 weeks away!!!!

*** Pasco National Weekend Report ( WaBMXnews -'05 )
by Mike Raich.

Great Racing, lots of motos, sunshine, and the Arts and Crafts
Show was back... Moto count looked like 196 on Saturday and 189
on Sunday. Depending on who you talked with that was up from the
175 of last year, or down from the 205 of last year.... Ask the ABA
guys and they don't remember how many motos there was last year
any better then the rest of us, and if you ask two ABA guys, you get
two different answers, just like asking any two of the spectators or
riders who said they were there last year...

Stories off the track abound...
Vehicles breaking down on route to the nationals...

Locked out of your motel room, and having it rented to another family,
only to have that family come back to the desk and report that someone
left their stuff in the room... Another motel had the fire alarm go off for
over 30 minutes while the motel staff stared at each other in total
bewilderment, and not only the fire department roaming the building,
but a goodly share of the Richland police department was there also;
and no one could determine how to shut the fire alarm off...

Turned out it wasn't a bmx'er this time; it was a college baseball team
prank.... and then there was the motel that had a wedding and a band
set up poolside played into the wee hours of the morning keeping all
the folks in rooms facing the pool wide awake all night.....

Vendor row is getting bigger again, with more choices available,
and more stock available... A good thing.....

I hope everyone that attended the Nationals in Pasco had a
pleasant trip, won their classes and enjoyed the sunshine...

Some of the weekend's topics......
ABA track builder Billy Allen building the
new Columbia Basin track over the weekend...

AA pros choose to gather at Stumpy's house over the
weekend and skip Pasco, only five AA's made the AA gate...

Kent, Washington building a new "BMX" track...

Eric Meyer on his way to AA...

Columbia Basin and Yakima talking about
combining their SCR's into one weekend in July...

ABA's new membership cards don't read on the card readers in the
national trailer any better than they do on the local track's card readers.

2004 Canadian National Awards were awarded on Saturday morning...
Several people needed to repair vehicles along their way to Pasco...
Only one year left on the Pasco contract with ABA...

The " TRAC" Arena food concession continues to decline,
down a long way from the fresh burgers, and complete fast
food fair that was available at the first couple of Nationals
in Pasco, and did you notice the food handlers without gloves
scratching themselves in personal areas while serving the food,
what's that all about??? Or am I the only one that sees this stuff.

Great dirt at the Pasco arena always yields a good racing surface...

Photos by Gene`s BMX on 03/19/2005 at the Northwest Nationals
in Pasco, Wa. I was using a HP photosmart 215 digital camera,
so some of the photos are not the best, Some blurr in the bulk
of them, but they do look a little bit better than last years pic`s
I guess I should think about upgrading to a better camera sometime.
but there is 192 photo shots for you to view or what ever. Enjoy!

Gene`s BMX took a trip to the Northwest Nationals this year of 2005
The drive was fun from Wenatchee to Pasco, It was nice, but going back
home, it was raining hard, but I made it home safe and in one pece......
I hope eveyone elses travle trips to and from Pasco was safe aswell.

It was nice to see some of the people I knew like,
Greg & Bryan Gamble, Danny Bushnell, Mike Raich, Mike Bull
and ahole lot of others, We could all talk bmx and coumpters
for ever. It was also nice to meet the guy that runs the big
BMX web site - BMX Mania.com - Mr. Jerry Landrum........
There also was alot of other people I met, the name list is so long,
So I don`t miss anyones name, - you all know who you where,
It was nice to meet all of you at the Northwest Nationals this year.

It was sad not seeing any bmx riders showing the Schwinn logo
this year at the 2005 ABA BMX Northwest Nationals in Pasco,
Washington. Gene`s BMX and alot of others was hopping to
see the Schwinn name at this event, but we did not, - Well -
I guess Nate Birkheimer had other agendas this week end.
He was not at the Northwest Nationals, But the ABA saved the
day by having a few and flying a few Schwinn logo Banners on
the side lines of the bmx race track. But its just not the same as
seeing that Schwinn logo on a bmx rider. Maybe next year, - ?

It looked that everyone was riding well and nice and had smiles
on there faces. A few tears at the finnish line of a lost moto or
two. But seemed the tears where dryed up with in a matter of time.
Some of the racing motos where hot racing and some where close.
A few falls from a few riders, but most got up and road the track to
the finnish line with the crowd chearing loud for the fallen riders.

The Northwest Nationals race in Pasco had some hot BMX Racing Action
for what I seen on Saturday, from all the PRO`s to the novice riders,
and to the track its self. "Everyone Did A Great Job!" - Well Done!

A Big Thumbs Up! to the ABA for making a nice track as they did.
The track was layed out well and the bmx racers raced it well.

The Great Northwest Nationals 2005 was a big bmx success and Fun!
I hope to see you all next year at the ABA Northwest Nationals in 2006

The area motels are reportedly heavily booked up and people
think the nationals will be the biggest ever at this site... Let's
hope so, however there is supposedly several other sports
holding tournaments in the Tri-Cities over the sameweekend,
plus there is a convention of some kind in one of the three cities
as well.... So, maybe the race will be what it normally is, just
with a tougher time getting accommodations.... See you all in

2005 Pasco Nationals....Plan for March 18-20 in Pasco...
TRAC ARENA will be changing their website, if they haven't already..

Pasco Nationals 2005
Latest Word comes from Steve Bailey, T.O. at Walla Walla....
Steve has been watching the TRAC ARENA calendar on line......
From: Steven Bailey - To: Mike Raich - Sent: Wednesday, August 25, 2004

I was just checking the TRAC facility calendar and they have the
National's as March 25-27. Checking the calendar the only options
for moving the dates would be March 18-20, or April 15-17.
The other dates are used up by events that need the dirt floor.
You can check it out, if you like at www.traconline.com
Talk to you soon, Steve Bailey

ADDED NOTE by Geneb,- Gene`s BMX
Looking at the TRAC facility in Pasco, at the calendar for 2005
it lists March 25th - 27th, 2005 for the ABA Great Northwest Nationals.
CC - http://www.traconline.com/cgi-bin/calendar.pl?year=2005&month=3
Please NOTE: Offical dates are March 18th - 20th, 2005 and is when
the ABA expects to race in Pasco. The TRAC website is in error,
and is supposed to be changed to reflect the March 18-20 dates.

*** Rumor Control ( WaBMXnews - Mike Raich ) ***

People have been telling each other that the Pasco National race site,
"TRAC" arena has been lost to ABA; and therefore the winter national
held there will not be held in the future.... I don't know who starts these
rumors or why, but Pasco is happy with ABA, and ABA is very happy
with the Pasco arena... Racers have continually praised the facility as
a venue for the ABA... The National race dates for 2005 are tentatively
set for another March race in Pasco... As always at this time of year the
dates may move between two or more weekends, but that national is
planned and on the ABA national list for March '05...

*** Pasco Feedback....Via WaBMXnews ( Mike Raich ) ***

So far, only one person I have heard of seems to have been happy
with the new national awards.... There were plenty of people that
thought they sucked big time and said so in many ways, some very
loud and profane, some less profane and just very loud...... Nearly
everyone thought the races ran well, and it was a good race....
Smaller than hoped for in moto count, but a good race....

March 28, 2004
After a week to think about it; people were still expressing their
distaste at the circle race night about the plaques awarded at the
Pasco Nationals. A few people thought it was neat, a very few people.

After a week, the following are a few of the comments about
plaques at Pasco: - if they (ABA) are going to give away those
cheap plaques, they should drop the entry fees to $5 a national
class because those plaques were less of an award than a single
point trophy... so no one liked the plaques? - plaques suck, but
if you're going to give them out, at least print them in multi-
colors, not just one cheap looking bad color on a piece of press
board combination...they sucked. Did you see those plaques in
Pasco? what happen to big national trophies.

Pasco was a lot of fun, and my kid did the best ever at a national,
and the only thing that would have made it better would have been
if he could have gotten one of those big trophies the ABA used to
give out...

My personal disappointment from Pasco......
The two restaurants I had found the first two years, that I liked,
were both closed......... I guess that says something about how I
evaluate restaurants....... Beware and Don't ever ask me, "Hey
Mike, where's a good place to eat?"......

weekend in Pasco, WA. From the moment he first set eyes on

first of three main events. The unfortunate results came in the
second and third mains, where he tangled both times out of the
gate with the riders next to him. He found himself having to
come from dead last, trying to work his way forward. With the
super tight track, he couldnt make up much ground. He ended
the day in the number six position overall.

Sunday would turn out much better, as he won the first main from
wire to wire. He finished second place in the second main and third
place in the third main to earn the number two spot overall for the
day. Not bad for a guy that is more than twenty years older than all
but one other rider in the main event.

Photos - ABA BMX 2004 Great Northwest Nationals Pasco, Wa.
The Photos Listed Hosted Via On Gene`s BMX FaceBook, Open Source.

( Click on Photos or URL" to open a Directory of Photos )
Photos by Gene`s BMX on 03/20/2004 at the Northwest Nationals
in Pasco, Wa. I was using a HP photosmart 215 digital camera, so
some of the photos are not the best, alot of blurr in the bulk of them.
I guess I should think about upgrading to a better camera sometime.
There is 216 photo shots for you to view or what ever.

Gene`s BMX took a trip to the Northwest Nationals this year of 2004
The drive was fun from Wenatchee to Pasco the sun was shinning the
hole time and it was warm out. Once I got in to Pasco, the Trac Arena
was ease to find. Once I pulled in to the parking lot I knew I was in the
right place. BMX bikes every where you looked. So I went in to the place.

I was sorta lost at first, but then I seen a face that iv seen in a hand
full of online photos and reports Mr.Danny Bushnell, who was nice
to point me in to meeting Mr.Greg Gamble who was working in the
middle of the track as an track official and doing a big time nice job of it.

I sorta hung out in the middle of the track with Mr.Gamble and we talked
computers and took a big load of photos why we where a talking. I also
sorta hung out at the starting gate and took a big load of photos.

I walked around the place and meet lots of nice people, some of them
I knew from way back in time, it was sorta like a trip back in to time.
But just before I left, Mr. Mike Raich track me down and we talked bmx.
I guess two guys that love the same sport could spend days talking about it.
But it was fun to meet everyone, and to all of the other people that I seen
and talked too, so many of you all, so I don`t miss anyones name, Im going
to say it like this, "you know who you are", it was nice to meet you all.....

Ok - some of the things I seen and herd at the track.
First off, part of my trip to the Nationals was to see it
for my self, Was Schwinn`s new BMX rider there or not?

Yes - AA Pro rider Nate Birkheimer made his way to the event.
I do not know what his results are for this race, but he looked
cool showing the Schwinn logos and was riding the track well.
Its nice to see Schwinn back in the game of BMX racing.......

It seemed that everyone was riding well and cool and had smiles
on there faces. A few tears at the finnish line of a lost moto or two.
But seemed the tears where dryed up with in a matter of time.

Some of the racing motos where hot racing and some where close.
A few falls from a few riders, but most got up and road the track to
the finnish line with the croud chearing loud for the fallen riders.

As I was taking some photos at the start gate area, A few parents
where riding there kids hard and cheering there kids on to win the
race. Some of the parents where riding there kids a bit hard, as some
foul language was herd becouse there kid did not ride the track the way
they wanted there kid to ride it. "Parents - Lighten Up Some" they are
just kids, so let them be kids and ride like a kid, The kids all did well
in my book. They had a bike out on the track giving all they have, But
you did not, My question is - Why not? show your kids how to ride, don`t
yell and cuss at your kids to ride, thats not showing good sportsmenship.

All and all, the Northwest Nationals race in Pasco had some hot BMX Racing
Action for what I seen on Saturday, from all the PRO`s to the novice riders, to
the track its self. Herd it in the grape vine, the track was built in a three day
time zone. A Big Thumbs Up! to the ABA for making a nice tack in a short time
zone as they did. The track was layed out well and the racers raced it well.

The Great Northwest Nationals 2004 was a big success and Fun!

*** Pasco Track Layout *** - ( BMXtalk )

OK, here is the lowdown: Same design as last year backward M
First Straight about the same (table down middle of straight and
doubles into the 1st corner. Second Straight-big doubles with the
second peak flowing down into a step-down type of thing, a set of
doubles, and a step-up into the 2nd corner.

Third straight was not done but Bill Morris said it will be a
step-up,step-down, 3 rollers, and a double into the final corner.

Fourth straight has a big set of triples into a roller and then
Finish Line. There it is memorize it, meditate on it, focus on a
penny for a minute, the berms looked perfect. When I was there
the only the first straight was done and the berms.

I went back 4 hours later and the second straight
was done and they were finishing the 4th. Amazing.

Gotta go. Talk to you soon, Steve Bailey , Walla Walla, WA

**** 2003 ABA Great Northwest Nationals News ****

The 2003 ABA BMX Great Northwest Nationals
April 04th - 06th , 2003 in Pasco, Washington At the Trac Arena (Indoor)

ABA Report Great Northwest Nationals - Pasco, WA - 04/07/2003
The 2003 Great Northwest National Prerace had a whopping 116
motos which beat last years count by 10 motos. Track was an M
design and the riders couldn't believe how smooth and fast it was
from start to finish. The race had members from 11 states but the
majority of the riders came from Washington, Oregon,Idaho,Canada.

This year's National #1 was 13 motos bigger than last year
with 197 action packed motos. The Veteran Pro class was
dominated by Jason Carnes from start to finish. Local favorite
Eric Meyer made his first A Pro race a huge success by blowing
away the competition. AA Pro Warwick Stevenson held off the hard
charges from Bubba Harris and Robert DeWilde to win the class and
move closer to the year end prize of a Hyundai Santa Fe. The move
of the day however goes to Nick Brown in the 36 and over expert
class as he schooled Clarence Perry in the last turn.

This weekend 19 States and a large contingent from Canada made
for some awesome racing. Warwick Stevenson not only won both days,
but he now holds the lead for the Hyundai Santa Fe as Kyle Bennett
failed to show. The standings are now as follows:

1.Warwick Stevenson
2. Danny Nelson
3. Kyle Bennett
4. Bubba Harris
5. John Purse
6. Robert DeWilde
7. Dale Holmes
8. Mike Day
9. Thomas Allier
10. Danny Robinson

Jason Carnes in Vet Pro
and Eric Meyer A Pro both doubled this weekend to the delight
of the jam packed arena. Those two plus the win Bubba Harris
got in Pro Open on Saturday provided Redline with 5 Pro wins
for the weekend. Well that is all for now hope to see you at
DeSoto, Texas next weekend.

Double A Marketing Race Report ABA Great Northwest Nationals
Pasco Wa. - Round 7 of the 2003 ABA Hyundai BMX ( 04/07/2003 )

Race Series took place this past weekend in the great northwest.
Ever since Gary Ellis retired, a trip to the Washington isn't
the same, but the ABA did their best with a great indoor track
for the Pro riders to race it out on. With 16 of the top AA pro's
in attendance, it made for some tough racing and a few fast guys
didn't make the main events. It seem like the smaller races, are
harder in AA pro, as there are only the really fast AA's in
attendance and every race counts and means a lot towards the
days overall events. Here is how Dale Holmes and Randy
Stumpfhauser finished up for the weekend.

Dale Holmes once again showed how good he really is with making
all 4 mains in Washington. Dales best finishes came in Pro Open
with a 2nd and 3rd, backed up with a 6th and 5th in AA Pro. Dale
is more than likely the most consistent Pro in BMX, making all
his mains, and that's why he sits in the top of the ABA overall
points standings. Look for Dale to be in DeSoto, Texas next week
end for the next round of the ABA Pro tour.

Dale's sponsors include Free Agent, O' Neal Pants, Gloves,
and Helmets, Smith Eyewear, Kenda Tires, Bombshell Forks, UGP,
Sun Ringle Rims, Profile Cranks and Hubs, ODI Grips, Shimano,
Powerbar, Champion Nutrition, BMXpros.com, & DALEHOLMES.COM

Randy Stumpfhauser made the trip up to Washington and made it
count as he took home 5th place points and money on Saturday in
AA Pro. Randy is having a phenomenal season on the Pro Circuit,
as he is currently leading the NBL Pro Points chase for 2003.
Look for stumpy to be in Tampa, Florida next week for the next
round of the NBL Pro Race Series.

Randy's sponsors include Huffy Bicycles, Fox Racing,
AC Components, IRC Tires, Smith Eyewear, S & M Forks
and Bars, ODI Grips, Champion Nutrition, Shimano,
Powerbar, Vans, BMXpros.com, and CTI Knee Braces.

-Steve Bailey Walla Walla, WA 04/07/2003
Did you have fun......at the Great Northwest Nationals? We had a blast,
I know on Sunday at 2 while we were driving away, I thought, did this
weekend start just 48 hours ago, it felt like a week but what an action
packed week it was. Fun track, good comp, it was great watching the 36
& Over classes. Let's do it again next year!!!
~~~~~~~~~~
-The Chouinards 04/07/2003
This was our first National! It was GREAT!! We had a wonderful
time, made some new friends, and spent time with some old ones.
The riding was great, the track was fast, and the weekend was
over TOO soon! We will be back.... Thanks to Dan Bushnell for
all of the help he provided, and the wonderful words of encouragement
he gave to all the riders, especially the talks prior to the Mains!
~~~~~~~~~~
- The VanderWaal's 04/07/2003
What a great weekend! - Congratulations to Eric Meyer for a nearly
flawless PRO debut! New Team Jerseys for BMXTC, Puget Sound,
and Linder! We've hit a few Nationals this year, but by far this was
the most fun. Sharing this experience with all our friends from across
the Northwest and watching many of the motos finish with Northwest
riders and friends running up front just as they would at our home
tracks is something to remember. Great job to all the riders and to
the parents and teams that support them. See you all at the track!

- Reo G. 04/07/2003
The weekend was great alot of great racing in all age groups.
I had alot of fun and was able to come home with two fourth
places for the weekend. It seemed like a short weekend to me.
I wish nationals would go for 4 or 5 days rather than only 3
but most of us can't aford that much racing so I will have to
be satisfied with the three day event.
~~~~~~~~~~
The Thurbers 04/08/2003
You folks rock,
My son Trey and I were there for the nationals. We had a great
time this weekend. This was his second nationals and my first.
I am happy with the way he raced this weekend. He may not have
made his mains, however, he showed that he could ride with the
top riders in the nation. The track was fast and smooth. The riders
were fast. We really enjoyed the pro riders. They were all awesome.
Especially, Warwick Stevenson, he rocked. I would like to say this
was one of the best races we have been to in the past three years.
The Linder jerseys were cool. Hey Roger, don't worry, I think they
will photograph well. I would like to say thank you to every one
that came to the "pool party" on Saturday night. I had a good time,
as did everyone who was there. I am looking forward to the next
national we attend. I hope you all had as much fun as we had.
Congratulations to everyone that made their mains. Just one
more thing, GO HARO!!!

*** Pre News about the Great Northwest Nationals Before the Race ***
*** Several Locals At BMX Nationals ***

Pasco, Washington ( Yakima Herald-Republic ) -- 04/03/2003
Austin Waters won't be the only top Yakima-area rider competing
in this weekend's Great Northwest Nationals, Friday through Sunday
in Pasco. Nor is he the only one knocking on the door of BMX's top
levels.

Chris Bull of Yakima, 15, competes for the same cycling team
as Waters does, a team sponsored by a Lake Stevens bicycle shop,
and has been coming on strong in the 15 Expert and 15 Cruiser
divisions on the state and national circuits.

Bull's younger brother Matt, 14, is doing well on the state
level, as are 10-year-old Kody Brotherton of Yakima, 13-
year-old Bobbie Jo Gleason and 8-year-old Allison Schuler.

Those racers will comprise only a tiny portion of what figures
to be a sizeable Valley contingent this weekend at TRAC, which
will be huge by local standards. At Yakima Valley BMX's recent
state-qualifying races in Selah, the association's biggest event
of the year, they had 62 motos (race heats) on the final day of
racing. The Great Northwest Nationals, with an expected 2,000
riders, will have about 200 motos each day.

Competition begins at 6 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. Saturday and
8 a.m. Sunday. Admission is free for spectators, and TRAC
charges no parking fee for the event.

*** BMX RACING--Riders Flocking to Pasco for National Event ***

Pasco, Washington ( Yakima Herald-Republic. ) -- 03/21/2002
For BMX racers and enthusiasts, this weekend's Great
Northwest Nationals event is a memorable occasion. It's the
only national BMX race held annually in the Northwest, but
this year marks the first time it has been scheduled on this
side of the Cascades.

The event at TRAC (Trade, Recreation & Agricultural Center)
will feature experienced pros like Mark Melton of Illinois
and Jan Baltzersen, a Dane now living in Southern California,
plus up-and-comers like 16-year-old rookie sensation Bubba
Harris of Kent-based Redline Bicycle.

The field figures to include top Central Washington amateurs
like 43-year-old Janet Rindal of Walla Walla, a two-time national
champion, and reigning age-group state champs like 12-year-old
Bobbie Jo Gleason of Yakima and 10-year-old Zach Wanderscheid
of Goldendale.

They will be part of a field of more than 500 amateur racers
competing in various age-group classes. For most, this weekend
primarily means a chance at seeing how they stack up against
the sport's best.

"There are groups of riders that do nothing but race at nationals
and very big, big races," says Scott Woodworth, 33, a regular in
the Yakima Valley BMX (YVBMX) races who first began competing
as a 10-year-old. "So we'll get the top riders from the nation. It's
going to be huge."

And potentially nerve-wracking for relative newcomers like
Tosha Dovel, a 14-year-old West Valley freshman who began
BMX racing less than two years ago and could find herself
in against veterans of a decade of racing.

"I'm really nervous for it, but I'm really excited to see how
I'm going to do," she says. "If I even keep up with them, then
I know I'm doing OK and I'll be happy."

Like any of the local events held at Autanum Youth Park in the
summer or at Selah's Canyon Stables in the winter, the TRAC
nationals are sanctioned by the American Bicycle Association
and follow the same rules.

"The difference is you may have 30 to 40 racers in your age group
(at TRAC), and here (in YVBMX races) you may have anywhere
from four to seven," says Mike Bull, YVBMX president.

"There's people flying in from all over the United States,
and they're looking for national age-group points."
