At the Gator Nationals this year, with nobody entering Factory we used a few riders on the Jesters Team Sheet and nailed down a win.
The ABA didn’t take too lightly us running some factory Rostered riders in a different category, so we got the win yanked!! But had a great time riding anyway.
With only 4 riders we took out some teams that had 5 times that amount, and unfortunately we didn’t get to keep the points but the team had fun and that’s what really matters.
For those on the West Coast let me introduce you to JESTERS BMX. Jesters is a mainly NBL state team that we sponsor and they have been taking down some serious results in the ever so popular Florida State Series. We have a great time working with this. Congrats on the great start already and well be watching for more in the coming months. Good luck at the upcoming Florida races! Our riders have put a lot into this Jesters Team and have made it a strong force! We are proud to have the Psykopath representation over there in FLORIDA.
We want to give a big THANK YOU! To Mike White and Family for all the support you've given us trough the seasons. Also big props to Jesters- Pat Marchese and Family have always represented us well. You can check them at http://www.freewebs.com/jestersbmx/ big Thanks to you guys!
