BMX News Video Pitstop: Crupi

As part of our coverage of the 2016 USA BMX Winter Nationals, BMX News Team members Tanner Yeager and Chase Bradshaw stop in to the Factory Crupi pit to check out what’s happening under the tent, and to hear all about their successful “Green Team” Sponsorship Program.

Crupi team manager Gary Whittington gives us some of the details on the 2016 Crupi product line, and a good-bit on Green Team–one of the more successful squads is down in Texas, where the Whittingtons used to call home before moving to So. Cal. recently.

As the 2016 racing season hits the power band, lots of new teams are forming, and we thought it would be a great opportunity for your startup team to learn more about the Green Team. Crupi owner, Greg Swingrover calls the program the “Fastrak to Factory.” It’s designed to be the way on-the-rise talent gets discovered.

2014 USA BMX Winter Nationals Photo Gallery

The Winter Nationals are always one of the best races of the year. It is generally the race where we start to see who is going to be the fighting force of the season, team wise. Plus, as the first outdoor race of the season, we get a first glimpse of who might be the stand-out riders of the year.

This year, BMX News contributor Tanner Yeager had the awesome responsibility of bringing back a photo gallery that represented the depth of the talent pool, in all classes. We think he did a great job on that front and know you’ll dig it too.

Above: Ryan Pettigrew took the win in Jr. Devo on Saturday, and in 15x on Sunday. Bubba Gonzales was first at the stripe in 15x on Saturday. Phoenix/Box has THREE guys in 15x, so we could not positively ID their guy in this photo, but we thinks it be Brian Ensey.
