The season long schedule
The pro class looks to be a shaping up to be a war.
2009 Overall Fluidride Cup DH champ & new Transition Bikes race team manager Lars Sternberg will be going back to his small bike roots to slay some 4x races. Expect Lars to be wicked fast as always. Fresh off his Moscow Arms Race win, Transitions Kyle Thomas will look to take his winning in DH over to 4x. No one will know the track better than BMX pro Daniel Mazuti. Mazuti’s dad Allen runs the races at PI. Expect Daniel Mazuti to be very fast. USA Cycling Jr men’s DH rep at the world championships Luciano Worl will be tossing his hat in the ring to see if he can show the old guys who’s the man in 4x in the NW. A host of other pros look to battle it out for the FSA pro 4x purse.
A couple of the other classes to watch:
In 30-39, Veteran BMXer Allen Levine has spent most of the past year on a mountain bike but expect his BMX skills to rise to the top at the tight PI indoor track.
2009 Fluideride DH cat 1 Champ & #2 at USA Cycling National’s Dirt Corp’s head honcho Matt Patterson will be looking to add to his resume with some 4x wins in 2009/2010 season.
In 40+, Old guy DH master Mike Estes (Cove Bikes, Alpinestars) is making the haul up from Hood River, Oregon to give it a go in 4x this winter. He will have to contend with current 40+ 4x National Champion Jason Gibb (Transition, SBS, NuTech Industrial) out of Redmond, WA. Both Estes and Gibb had almost perfect seasons in their specialty so it should be a great race.
With the Northwest being a hot bed for some of the best BMX racers in the nation, don’t be surprised if they find a bike and join in the fray.
