This dude is for Real. "BMX IS BETTER THAN SEX" SONG? WTF

There are alot of silly stupid bmx songs, and even Crazy Ronnie Anderson's rap song "at the gate" some find it silly.  We think its dope cause it motivates you to ride and he is the badass of bmx racing.  This song by Guitarman569   does not motovate anyone to ride...I dont know what else to as Winston Churchill said "If you're going through hell, keep going."

Kyle "ZMAN" Zondervan at the first UCI Olympic style race with the pack coming down the biggest starting hill that BMX has seen, 2005

 NBL Master Track builder Tom Ritz came up the the design and the UCI ran with it.  Riders from all over the world came to compete but the San Jose CA track was something these BMXers never seen before.  This was the biggest starting hill ever sending many riders packing and heading back home without breaking a sweat.  Bmxers that came to compete did not have a clue or not mentally prepared for the monster berm jump, tight fast berms and technical jumps.  There were even a group of Pros protesting that this is not what bmx racing should evolve too. The race was set because the big sponsors forked out the bread. Those with downhill bmx skills, trail skills, and fearless hearts raced this Olympic track.  The days of muscle head Pros becoming King were over.  Counties started calling Mr Ritz to have them build one of there own and history was made.  We had a few pro riders compete at the time Zman as seen in this photo had the dirt trail skills to compete, another young Psykopath Nick Dawg was a street rider and dirt trail boss so this was just new sandbox for him to play in.  East coast NBL Pro Mike Gonzales was also a young Psykopath rider that hit the course with pure style, this was his type racing..  Psykopath's best result came from another eastcoast Pro Justin Loffredo who almost made the big show.  Justin was not phased with the new style of Olympic racing as he was a top gun in the BMX downhill racing circuit and X games puting up good result.

BMX Music, What will they think of next: DJ turntable-BMX bike converts tricks into music

The Turntable Rider is a new bicycle accessory which converts a bicycle into a musical instrument which will be on the market 2013.  The bike wheels, become jog wheels.  The handbrakes, become sound pads.  Mix and scratch at will.  I wonder what type of  music will a  Elite Rider create on a Supercross UCI track.

BMX fans will miss the lost of Olympic and 3 Time World Champ Kyle Bennett .

Its still hard to believe that Kyle Bennett who represented the U.S. in the inaugural Olympic BMX  race will not be at the races.  We got to know Kyle when he opened his home to our new Elite rider Augusto Castro.  Kyle helped the younger Augusto with training and motivation(the mental game).  They both went to the Worlds Championship where Kyle won and Augusto made the main, then to the Olympics.  We think Augusto had his best career year after Kyle took the role of big brother helping Augusto.  Our longtime sponsor Tioga put together this tribute video, also checkout the 2007 Worlds video of Kyle the Legend.

Co Factory Rider Joe Robinson back in the Day

Janseville WI back in 1986 Joe was on the same team as Nor Cal Bmx Hall of Famer Ronnie Anderson.  Joe started racing in 1983... then raced for factory Coke for a year.  Joe raced every NBL national in 86 in the U.S. and a few ABA nationals, Back in the day big sponsors were paying out and Joe was living the dream at 15 years old. Hardees was a major fast food chain that had a big budget for its bmx team...the team even had a new 85 suburban truck and a enclosed trailer all pimped out.  Joe was lu cky to get on the team and be a part of it before Hardees franchises were over.  Joe almost won  a Grand National and was a main event maker at all the Nationals.  Were glad Joe is back into and riding for Psykopath with his kids.

1982 ABA Nationals/Winter-Nationals - 1982-Chandler/

The start is the most important thing in bmx racing then and now, I was never good at it, but when you take the right snap you just know it.

In future post you will see old skool pictures of past Psykopath Riders.  So all you past Psykopaths send in in those pictures of bmx Piorneering, or we will find them.  I'm # 18 sponsored by Bike Village Racing (BVR)/Pizzia Hut, that day I rode well with all National Factory riders in my class but just missed the main on the bubble.

What riders have to say about the contest

What do you think of the contest and why?

It´s a superfun and relaxed contest and the perfect way to end the season with your friends. I am very over traveling right now, but will travel over the pond anyway. I guess that shows that it´s a pretty damn good contest!

What is the atmosphere like?

The atmosphere is definitely more towards having a good time then to win it. And that´s a great way to end a very competitive season.

Is the contest like other contest?

The comp and weekend have their own tweaks, always fun with something a bit different.

"Martin Soderstrom"

What do you think of the contest and why?

I think that the head to head format is awesome. It's unique for a dirt jump contest and it reminds me of racing dual slalom back in the day...

What is the atmosphere like?

Atmosphere is mellow. It feels like a jam.

Is the contest like other contest?

Nope, AT's Showdown is a refreshing detox from the hectic contest schedule that we go through over the summer.

"Tyler McCaul"
