Race Report!

The Psykovan celebrated its 100 thousand miles of travelling to and from races. Most recently, the van made 2 trips to So Cal and one to Vegas.First it was the Redline cup finals west and then the ABA SoCal Nationals and finally to Vegas for the UCI North American Qualifier. These races were awesome,The Redline Cup held in Ontario had a pretty cool pro section, this was a killer track our Pros had a lot of fun!,Patty Metzger got another # 1 plate to her collection and the Psykopath pros ruled the Redline Cup Saturday, the podium was filled with our riders. Alan Hudson won 1st place Saturday (Alan will be turning AApro real soon), Jesse Langland got a third on Saturday, he got his first pro win on Sunday. Congratulations!, Jesse's hard work is paying off! Evan Steinberg was Mr. Consistency, he grabbed 2 second places throughout the weekend, look for Evan to be a real treat in pro ranks next season.Now that Evan will be living in Arizona he should have good training buddies. Congratulations all our Team Members who Won at the Redline cup! Next we headed to San Bernardino, home of the Orange Show BMX. A smooth track as usual, volunteers did a great job! Everyone loved the track!We saw plenty of action!Omar Sawyer has been on fire lately and he proved it.Wining one of the pro mains.Watch out for Omar he’s on a mission! Jesse was present after his first pro win, he was looking to repeat his performance again.But, on Sunday he ended up with a fourth and a second.
Our Argentinian import Damian Lopez had a good weekend grabbing 2 seconds and a third. Overall the Team rocked the house!Next stop was UCI Boulder City, One of the Best Track's,Elite World #7 Agusto Castro made the trip all the way from Bogota, Columbia,Agusto had some fast laps but could not make the main. Argentinian Elite rider Damian Lopez was also there and came up short in making the mains.Elite women's Pro Erika Short was seen leading motos all weekend,She ended up with a top main event finish on Saturday and a slip in a semi on Sunday which kept her out of the main event. However in Elite Women's Open Class she took first place. Jesse Lanagland moved up from Junior to Elite Men and seemed comfortable in his new class. However he was able to make an Elite open main event. Carl Renowitzky had some Vegas luck and was able to make the Elite Open on Sunday.The hightlight of the weekend was Alan Hudson. Alan won both days in Elite Open and at the last minute Psykopath's team manager bought him a UCI license and signed him up and Alan almost made the UCI main that day. Alan scored a very important UCi point for TEAM USA. Amateur highlights were litte Mike Anderson Jr who scored a pair of seconds. Anthony Renowitzky took first place in his class on Sunday.Dani Blackmore was out front all weekend and the rest of the amateur crew for the most part made their mains and had a great weekend of racing.I would like to thank our sponsors: Menace Apparel,, and the Funky Monkey Bar and Grill.Don’t forget to check out our newly updated website!
