Exclusive Interview: Stu Thomson, Industry Legend in the Making
@stacykohut: Yep, Skip Hess the owner of BMX Products (aka Mongoose) was a long time drag racer and did indeed name the bikes after his friend Tom McEwen. Gary Turner of GT came from drag racing as well. He currently has a nostalgia nitro funny car called Pedaler. https://bangshift.com/general-news/bangshifts-nitro-funny-car-gypsy-lays-odds-26th-california-hot-rod-reunion/ (about halfway down the page)

Exclusive Interview: Stu Thomson, Industry Legend in the Making
@stacykohut: The first bike SE made was a JU-6, named for Jeff Utterback. Utterback left SE to ride for GJS (company his dad started), so Scot Breithaupt added a headtube gusset to the JU-6 and renamed it the PK Ripper after Perry Kramer. Stu did race on a PK Ripper for awhile, but you are 100% correct about the bike that was originally built by SE for Stu. The STR-1 didn't go into production before Stu went to Redline, so they simplified the design by not wrapping the twin downtubes wrap around under the BB and renamed it the Quadangle.

@RideTahoe707: No, that is the current one with 26" wheels. The new one coming for 2019 is going to be a 24".

Exclusive Interview: Stu Thomson, Industry Legend in the Making
@Supermoo: Well, this weekend he is at an old school BMX reunion in Chatsworth California, and tomorrow for his 60th birthday there is going to be a big group ride in Long Beach in his honor. SE Bikes is making a new signature bike for him in their 2019 line. SE Bikes should have something about it on their website and/or Facebook page.

@WAKIdesigns: I think you are forgetting that Gwin runs E13 wheels which have an integrated cassette, 7 speed 9-21. If he was running a 36t chainring with a 9t cog his top gear would be equivalent to a 44-11. He ran a 32-9 which is almost identical to a 36-11.

@DDB1: Yeah, good point. Must have been something else than. I wonder if a few riders showed up late for their start time?

Some riders were bunnyhopping the hay bales that were at the apex of corners. I think the penalty was 5 seconds each time they did it. Here is a rebroadcast from some live local footage. https://youtu.be/7qxhD0iEq0A
