I have come to the conclusion after reading about all these US olympic training tracks that the sanctioning bodies of BMX racing have absolutely no idea what to do with this thing.June 13, 2007 at 12:58 pm #46516
i second that..
screw all this trying to get national, regional, world numbers.. its seems like so much of a hassle.. way to complicated and costly..
i dont even give a fuk about state numbers..
i just like riding my bike on dirt and seeing my friends
bottom line is.. bmx is fun in its simplicity to go out and kick it with the bro’sJune 13, 2007 at 1:03 pm #46518
yea, it seems like it’s being overthought and it’s trying to please everyone but it’s not.
It’s not big enough at the local level to really support the national level properly anymore.
Fresh ideas are needed to bring people into the sport that normally wouldn’t do it, I just feel a disconnect someplace.
I may have to do something drastic.June 13, 2007 at 1:14 pm #46521
yep.. its not the “all you need is a bike, a helmet, long pants and a long sleeve t-shirt”
now its ” all you need is a bike, a helmet, long pants and a long sleeve t-shirt, college degree ito figure all of the bmx rules out, and a billion dollars”June 13, 2007 at 1:42 pm #46526bmxmom156Member

uci rule– along with no jeans and mandatory gloves–
i’ve been riding without gloves for 20 years and my hands are still silky smooth– just ask your girlfriends 😈June 13, 2007 at 2:09 pm #46529
You know Levi’s and other jean companies have LOTS OF MONEY.
BMX racing does not think outside it’s own box well.June 13, 2007 at 2:16 pm #46530s4lnjMember
levis actually just started a team including 5 of the top guys right now– including bestwick, wade, and a few others that i cant remember right nowJune 13, 2007 at 2:25 pm #46532
I saw that, and you know those lads are getting PAID.
Not a racer in the bunch though…
Ingenuity breeds creativity or does creativity breed ingenuity?June 13, 2007 at 10:58 pm #46566
racing pants are GAY.. we are not on a stupid motorcycle.. they dont belong in bmx.. maybe if we had DIRT turns instead of the wack blacktop.. kids wouldnt be eaten alive when they crash on themJune 14, 2007 at 1:40 am #46592BIGANT-DOGMember

Um dave i respect your opinion, but uniforms help you stand out from the other teams. People at the track know who cjs racing is just by our uniforms. When i crashed at EHT I had no knee or shin pads on. just my FOX racing pants. I thoungh my knee was gonna be toast, but not a scratch. When it gets too hot I will wear my kahki’s but to be honest i do not feel right without my “motorcycle pants”June 14, 2007 at 2:40 am #46596ErickWeinstetterMember
Yeah Uniforms are way cool. When I first got into BMX it was the bikes and the uniforms that helped me pick my favorites.
SE Racing Brown and Blue baby, Pattersons, orange, yellow and blue.
Mongooses red white and blue uniforms were sweet.
I’m glad the Phillies dont play in blue jeans and tshirts. I’m glad the Houston Texans dont play in blue jeans. I rarely for some reason owned leathers (see my avatar).
But I always loved dialed uniforms. I loved the ones we created with Hyper and now Clay still has Hyper looking dialed in.June 14, 2007 at 3:38 am #46602
you know how to stand out??? be YOURSELF… who needs flashy colors to stand out.. not me.. stand out by being cool and having style points.. leathers are gay and belong in motorcross.. not MOTOcrossJune 14, 2007 at 10:32 am #46606BIGANT-DOGMember
you know how to stand out??? be YOURSELF…
