I raced BMX from ‘81-‘84. My brother and I had jerseys from Howards Cyclery. We started as beginners on Red Line bikes. I then had a Cooks Bros. before racing for Thruster. After that, we then had Robinson bikes.
We started at Monrovia then primarily raced at Van Nuys. Also raced at Canyon Country, Corona, Sadleback, Bakersfield, and a few others. We also did several demo races at A department store. Finished up racing at Azusa. We were also at a big race at Knott’s Berry Farm one year.
I raced in the NBA, WWBMXA, ABA, and NBL. I was just a young kid then, but still remember all the pros from the circuit: Harry Leary, Stu Thompson, Perry Kramer to name a few. They were always really cool to my brother and I.
Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
