Australian Factory Team dominate…
The FA factory team from down under have dominated the Australian National Series and Championships.
The newly formed team of Bodi Turner (Elite Men) and Max Cairns (Junior Elite) was a formidable force taking 3 of the 4 titles on offer. Bodi Turner finished with taking the top spot in the National Series and claiming a 3 in the National championships behind some heavy hitters who came back from overseas to compete.
Max Cairns had a dominating series winning almost all 5 rounds to take the win and wasn’t done there winning the Australian National Championships from start to finish in the junior elite category
Bodi now sets his sites on the UCI world cups and is currently living in Europe for the next 3 months racing some of the euro rounds.

Jared Eberwein on Ride
Heres the low down on Jared Eberweins Ride cover, straight from the man him self.
Big congrats to Cristian Becerine, as he takes the USABMX Vet Title over in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It came right down to the very last second in the main event. Cristian held his cool and took the title for the 2nd year in a row. Right on Big C! David Herman has had a great year hitting the podium consistently all year long against the World’s best. Going into the Grands, David had a shot at the Top 3 overall with a good showing. Friday, David took a solid 2nd place behind Sam Willoughby bumping up a few more points and a shot at National number 2 with a good showing Saturday night. Points were tight but, unfortunately, a bad lap in his quarter final ended David’s year and he secured the National #4. Not too shabby considering the World’s best were all racing this year. Congrats David on a stellar year. The Machine, Maris Strombergs, was back at the Grands and looked good all weekend with a main event appearance Friday and a bad lap on Saturday night in the semi - ended Maris’ weekend. Even though the results didn’t factor for Maris he put on a good show, as always. Maris heads down to Colombia for a race next week were I’m sure he will redeem himself.
As always, a special thanks to our sponsors for making it happen:

TJ Ellis in Miami
TJ Ellis just sent over these pics from the ASA event in Miami Florida. TJ was taken out in the earlier rounds of the event, but looked right at home on these big wooden kickers.
Jared Eberwein hits 65th
Heres a short one of Jared taking a few runs through the 65th park in southern California. Jared lives close to this park and makes riding it look easy.
Jared Eberwein at half time
Jared Eberwein is mixing it up. Jared just did a Oakland Raiders halftime show. They set up ramps in the middle of the field during one of the Raiders home games in Oakland. Hows that for pressure, a full stadium of Raider fans.
TJ Long Jump
We made a trip to San Diego to hit up the Markit Jam at the Clairmont Skatepark. In Normal Markit fashion it was a great time with a series of fun contest and BBQ. Heres a short clip of TJ Ellis winning the long jump contest. It was scarey to watch as they ripped into this sketchy looking kick ramp. Here TJ cleared the 33 ft mark.
