UCI World Cup and USABMX Nationals in Chula Vista
A good weekend for the boys at both the UCI World Cup and USABMX Nationals this past weekend in Chula Vista, CA. David Herman had another great weekend placing 4th place in the final at the World Cup against all the World’s best. Indeed, a good year for sure for the “Herm”. Maris Strombergs didn’t race, as he is still enjoying a little break this year on the World Cup SX race front, but did come to hang out and sign autographs with the team. Expect “The Machine” back on the full World Cup front in 2014.
During the World Cup in Chula Vista, USABMX put on a successful 2 day National event on the smaller USABMX track next door. Cristian Becerine continued to have a great year with a 2nd and a 1st. TM, Dale Holmes got out the bike once again to race in the old man’s class and managed to get the win both days. Next up for the Team, the Redline Cup next week in Fresno, CA. Cheers!

Not the greatest World Championships for the Team with Cristian crashing, Maris not really getting the feel of the track and David, left high and dry in the semi. In all, a good time in NZ, great people and a well-hosted event. Looking forward to going back…

USABMX Desoto Texas
Over the weekend the team made the 3rd stop on the USABMX tour in Desoto, Texas. Maris Strombergs, David Herman & Cristian Becerine all braved the cold weather while also riding well and making the main event on Saturday. Cristian placed 3rd in Vet, Maris grabbed 6th in Elite and David Herman left with a solid 3rd in Elite. Sunday morning temperatures were even tougher for the guys. Cristian rode to another 3rd place, Maris made the main but couldn’t quite put it together . The weekend was dominated again by Redline’s Sam Willoughby – congrats to him. Next up for the team, Cristian Becerine will be conducting a clinic in Boulder City, Nevada on Saturday, April 6th, from 10:00a.m.-12:00p.m. — for more information on the team, please check us out on freeagentbmx.com (photo bmxnews.com)
