I discovered this site the other night and signed up so I just wanted to introduce myself. I’m Greg Friend and I just turned 40 this year.
I was born & raised in Freehold so Howell was my hometown track where I did most of my racing in the early to mid-80s. I attended the 1981 Bob Haro freestyle show at Bicycle World and competed in an Iron Man Classic or two. I also raced some at Long Branch, Englishtown and a few times in Flemington.
I still have my bike. It’s a time capsule frozen in time when I stopped BMX racing as I started going to college in 1985. You can see it here: Red Line Pro-Line
Hey Greg welcome. My sister now lives in Freehold. My only memory of it was having to drive thru its circle to get to the Monmouth NBL track.
By 81 I raced only ABA and in Sept. moved to California so we probably
didnt cross paths as it sounds like if you raced in 81 it was probably NBL or WWBMXA.
You got any of the old WWBMXA newsletters or point standings?
