Win Marc Willers London 2012 Backup Frame/Fork

March 12, 2013 by · Comments Off 

bmxnews.org - Win Marc Willers Backup from London 2012

Just as TSA was giving us a very proper body scan at Tampa airport yesterday, we got an email from Marc Willers. Seems he is looking to jump his social media game to the next level, and is offering a trophy of historic proportions for one lucky media mate.

He’ll explain the details below, but this is the backup DK Frame and Fork that was with him in London, standing by, if duty called. We’re sure the actual game frame is on a wall somewhere in the Willers warehouse of BMX trickness, so this is about as Olympic as any common spoke bloke can get.

Marc gives the details on how the giveaway will go down:

I’m giving away my DK Bicycles frame and fork that was built as my backup bike for the 2012 London Olympic Games. No catch, no small print, I will simply send it anywhere in the world.

For your shot at the win, all you have to do is:

1). Follow me on Twitter (twitter.com/marcwillers) AND Instagram (Instagram.com/willers777)

2). You must then hash-tag #TeamWillers and mention @dkbicycles, on either Twitter or Instagram (but still follow on both), explaining why you deserve it the most.

The frame will go to whichever comment I feel needs it most, or is simply the funniest! The winner will be decided on Monday, March 25th. You must be following on both Twitter and Instagram on March 25th to be eligible.

Way cool, Willy!

BMX News will bring you the results when Marc decides who’s the wittiest or most deserving of all.

Supercross Giving Two Frames for a Super-Story

November 7, 2012 by · Comments Off 

Supercross BMX is giving away two envy frames, via bmxnews.org

As the drone of election night returns were at maximum, we got an email from smilin Bill Ryan over at Supercross. Seems they have two frames that were too small for their intended pilots and came back to the Supercross factory after the bigger-size swap-out had occurred.

Well, they have been built-up, so they can’t be sold as new. It was around that time they hatched a plan to bring an early Christmas to two lucky mini-movers who have a compelling story on why the $500 worth of aluminum awesomeness should flow their way.

Here’s how it breaks down:

Well here is the deal. If you are a little ripper and are in need of a new frame, or if you are a parent of a little ripper, it is time for you to get busy. We are accepting mailed-in requests only.

All entries must be post marked by No. 30th , 2012

We will be selecting the two winners on December 7th.

Sorry, but this is only open to residents of the Continental United States. (International contests may be popping up soon at some International Distributors so keep your eyes open )

We need a handwritten letter to the best of the riders ability, addressed to Dani or Jeremy, explaining why they need a new frame.

The riders must be valid USABMX members. Parents, you need to send in a list of race results, a copy of a current report card if applicable, a photo of the riders current bike and how you think the frame would help out your child.

This current contest is limited to the 2 2012 Supercross ENVY’s pictured. One White, One Teal. They are Mini Frames, so it is most likely going to fit a child of 8 years old or younger.

By entering the contest you are agreeing that Supercross can publish the winners photo and name in conjunction with this giveaway. Odds on winning are dependent upon the number of entries we receive.

So if you think that you or your rider is in need of a new frame and has a valid reason why, shows effort at school and on the track. Now is the time to get writing and see if they can win. Good Luck everyone!

Commenting from the USA Cycling camp currently under way in Chula Vista, Dani George said:

“In a sport as small and interconnected as ours, it’s important to give back to the younger generation so that they grow to love it and eventually help the sport itself develop.”

—Dani George

Jeremy Rommel added some soulful syllables of his own:


I wanna hook a lil dude up with a frame because the lil guys are the future of the sport. and i love stoking out the lil dudes. I want them to tell me about how much the love to ride their bikes, and their favorite part about riding.

—Jeremy Rommel

A great gesture from some great people.

Win T-Hoff’s Bike!

Tony Hoffman is giving away his Haro BMX Race Bike
We are big Tony Hoffman fans here at the BMX News command-and-control center. Back in April, we posted about one of his regular talks to high school students in and around Fresno, CA. Tony does this as part of his “Freewheel Project” youth outreach program, and we are always stoked to hear what he has cookin as the next click on the freewheel of life.

This week, Tony announced, on his website (link below), that he was starting a social media challenge for his fans. You have to watch the video on his site to get the full skinny on how to participate, so check the link below.

The whip he’s giving away is one of his actual race-rides, with AA-level parts…and rings the register at about $2000. News is always impressed by T-Hoff’s desire to give back, spreading the word about the utter destruction drugs will inevitably cause those straying over the line. Staying on the straight & narrow is the way…via BMX Racing.

And if you have not yet listened to his talk to the Senior class at Buchanan High, take some time to do that now…it is something not to be missed (see link below)!

Get on over there and jump in!
