Indiana Ghostrider

Steel Wheels BMX in Northwest Indiana held a State Qualifier on April 7. People from all over the Hoosier State, and surrounding states, turned out for an exciting evening of indoor BMX. That, in and of itself, is not necessarily newsworthy, though it is great to see so many people getting in Read more

2012 USA BMX Illinois District Map
This may not be “breaking news” but USA BMX is moving some of the districts around to better accommodate the influx of new riders, both from the NBL merger, and (hooray!) from better-than-expected recruitment in some areas.

Illinois, Indiana and Colorado are three cases-in-point, and we wanted to bring you the maps, so you can find yourself, and your new (old?) district. The BMX News HQ stays the same, goodie for us!

Here’s what the plan looks like in the Hoosier State:

And out West, where new tracks are springing up, and recruitment is on the ride, the brand new CO-03 will cover the Southern portion of the state.

BMX News will keep you posted as new maps emerge.

Justin Richmond wins 2011 Young Guns Shootout
Our fourth trip to the Young Guns Shootout at Steel Wheels BMX had a lot of the earmarks of the first trip. Lots of 13 and under race action, an abundance of familiar faces and a house full of fans, families and photogs.

Rider count this year was 125, sorted into five classes: 7-Under Boys, 8-10 Boys, 11-13 Boys, 10-Under Girls and 11-13 Girls

Justin Richmond has been the most consistent and successful rider in the history of the Young Guns series, having never lost a lap in the four years of racing the event. He closed out his Young Guns career with absolute dominance in the 11-13 class, and was joined on the podium by two of his Snap Factory Teammates, Nick Deters and Tyshawn Carr. Nick just joined the Snap squad after the Grands, and is looking good in the new threads. The Snap guys have some new things afoot for 2012, showing some early signs via the corral of Ssquared frames in their pit, replacing the Redman rides. More to come on that.

In the 11-13 Girls Class, Rennen-Intense Michigander, Elida Beeman was up front in all the rounds and put the punctuation on a good season.

DK’s Ohio Express, Spencer Cole, brought the fight to the 8-10 boys class in a big way, winning the main by a beefy margin. Coletrain was rockin the new DK Magnesium frame, which we know lots of people are anxious to get their hands on in the new season.

We don’t have the official results yet, and will update this post when we do, but before we head back to Steel Wheels for today’s Future Pro Challenge, we wanted to get the photo gallery up for y’all.
