The coveted NAG-1 plate is now within sight for young Dominic Duran.

The 5-year-old Mantecan triumphed in the 2011 Redline Cup Finals in Boulder City, Nev. this past weekend, bringing home with him the championship trophy, a No. 1 plate and Redline Cup jacket awarded only to the top finishers in each age division.

Duran, who races for the Psykopath Industries BMX team and is a kindergartener at Woodward Elementary, has one more big prize to add to his growing collection: The aforementioned NAG-1 plate awarded to the country’s top point-getter in his/her national age group.

The American Bicycle Association BMX National Series comes to a close Nov. 26-27 in the Grand Nationals at the QuikTrip Center in Tulsa, Okla. Duran is currently No. 1 in the nation in the 5-year-old boys circuit.

The Duran family is raising funds to help make the trip. Donation tables will be set up at Safeway and Raley’s in Manteca once a week. Additionally, Mountain Mike’s Pizza (Nov. 1) and Chilaberries Frozen Yogurt (Oct. 27) are hosting a fundraising events to help support Duran, who is in his first year of competitive BMX racing.

FUMI will always be RAD

I talked to my good buddy Nick Dawg and he gave me the sad news, his words below from his blog is how we all feel. We lost one of our own. Fumi Cummins you will be missed.

Carl R.

It's been a rough year or few months or whatever. And it really sucks to relay this information because losing someone you know is never a good thing. Im not sure exactly when I first met Fumiko, but she was an old school BMX'er and had a genuinely happy outlook on life. I recall meeting her somewhere at a Ca national and then I remember sessioning her local track in Oklahoma with Alan Hudson and a few of the locals out there. We hit a dinner session with her and David and talked nor*cal bmx. She was and will always be Psykopath family :) When I heard she passed away today I was bummed for sure. Normally Id head to the trails and roost a double in her honor but the rainy days will have to let up for that. But Fumi I owe ya one for sure. Here's to a future meeting and never goodbye but I'll be seein ya again. RIP Kidd.

Factory UK Psykopath is Back

Factory UK Psykopath riders Dan and Andy's (THE BASH BROTHERS)latest update and results at the British Championships in Cheddar

1st off cruisers took place on Saturdays racing which Dan rode in the 17-29 category, which was stacked with 25 riders consisting with many junior and elite, Dan hit up a 5th, 2nd, and 3rd in his motos which sent him safe through to the semi finals, Dan had a good gate in his semi which lead him out of the 1st turn in 3rd and ended up finishing in that all important 4th position to see him threw into the finals.

Dan ended up in lane 8 but pulled off a great swoop in the 1st corner which put him in 4th place, but took a knock in the last corner which knocked him back to 7th so a good all round day for Dan.

Sunday came and its was raining, so a wet and damp track meant it was going to be very slippery coming in to the the fast downhill 1st turn and with 42 riders in the 17-24 category meant it was going to be a tough day.

Dan got a 3rd, 2nd and 4th in his motos with Andy grabbing 3rd, 1st, and 3rd which put us safe into the quarters finals, so quarters came round and Andy was up 1st and with his great gates and 1st strait it put him into the lead out if the 1st corner which he held and won. Now Dan was up and had a good start and grabbed a 3rd so both guys threw to the semis.

Semi final time and we were both psyked. Dan's semi was up 1st he had a good gate but got held wide in the 1st turn and came out 7th there was a crash in turn 2 so Dan was now 5th, chasing down 4th but just couldn't quite get there.
Andy hit the track and got squeezed in the middle of the 1st straight and came together with another rider and ended up taking eachother out.

But all in all a good result from the UK team and now the season is over its time to hit the training and come back with a new look and a bigger team.
