Albuquerque USA BMX Spring Nationals
Over the weekend, the team headed to Albuquerque, New Mexico, for the USA BMX Spring Nationals. It was the first time we’ve had a full team line up in awhile, as our guys have been busy in different parts of the world fulfilling commitments and racing.
Cristian Becerine has been recovering from a bit of a knee injury sustained in Atlanta a few weeks ago but decided to give it a go over the weekend. Saturday, Cristian was winning the final and unfortunately unclipped and it cost him a podium but Sunday he came back strong taking a win.
Bryce Betts raced all three days and made 5 main events. He came away with two podiums and a good, consistent showing for the weekend.
Anthony Dean was back in the states from world travels and even though the results don’t show it, he was riding well all weekend but crashed on Saturday while in a qualifying position in the semi-final. Sunday, same bit of bad luck struck again and a crash kept Anthony out of the main event and the fatigue from travel was really starting to set in. It was time to head back to San Diego to regroup.
Team Manager, Dale Holmes raced and took the win both days in his class.
All in all, a good weekend. Cristian heads out to Nashville this weekend and the full team line up will be in Salt Lake City the weekend after – keeping it busy, just the way we like it.
