Posted 19 Jul 2011from my understanding, bernie started blazer in 1979
May have been, but I think a guy named Mike Mayberry started it in Lufkin, Texas. Not sure what year though. '79 may have been correct. Also manufacturing rights may still belong to Mike and/or Bernie. All I know is they were being manufactured, marketed, and the factory teams were being managed by Charles Bruce post '82. Hope this helps...Brock
Posted 30 Nov 2010Great thread and very cool little mini Brock, and yes you are correct on that being at River City. It was taken on the bleachers down at the first turn by the big'ol oak tree.
By far the fastest, funnest track in the state of Texas! Loved racing there...
Posted 30 Nov 2010VERY COOL PIC!!
Dave...I believe your right. And it would have been in Chandler, Arizona at the Winter Nationals. That was when we both received our 10,000 point club plaques in 1983 for the 1982 season, which in the day was the most coveted ABA points award to hold, except for #1 National Amatuer or #1 Pro. Chasing points was the name of the game back then. Hitting a race every night of the week and 2-3 on on Saturdays and Sundays. Also the Texas Tour was a big tour of Texas and surrounding states where we went on the road for 6 weeks racing every day...I remember spending tons of time with guys like Steve Veltman, Jim Chankin, Monte Gray, Don Johle, Racer Yoeman, DD Leone, Cody Smart, Richard Lamb, BA Anderson, Bingo Pashia, etc...Just to name a few Texas guys, traveling the circuits...Those were the days.
Funny you mention the Texas tour....look at this hoopty mirror..trophy thing..1982
Yep...I have a few of those laying around moms place somewhere too...
Posted 30 Nov 2010i think factory REBEL rider eddie sigmund is in this pic...not sure if this is the REBEL team or what, but theres lots of REBEL jerseys
That was not the Rebel Team, but numerous local supporters. I have confirmed this was taken at River City BMX in San Antonio circa'81. Eddie is in the pic in the front row 4th from right. Also I know for sure that was Eddie's dad in the pic sitting top left. We rode together for a couple of years before he went to Skyway.
