BAWLS/Intense BMX gear, as well including a limited edition T.H.E. Product Helmet! Joining Danny is ABA Rookie Pro of the Year David Herman, who will represent Intense BMX/BAWLS Guarana at ABA and NBL races nationwide, as well as the International UCI events. BAWLS Guarana and Intense BMX also plan to partner in a number of BMX racing contests and promotions over the next few seasons, including BAWLS-branded Intense Bikes, in-store bike displays and giveaways at BAWLS retailers, BMX-branded packaging at Target stores, at-race clinics and contests for racers and a bigger-than-ever BAWLS BMX Blowout Contest.
“2008 is a huge year for BMX with its first appearance in the Olympics as well as all the great racing going on in the USA and we are thrilled to have riders as talented as the ABA #1 Pro Danny and David joining our team,” said BAWLS Guarana CEO Hoby Buppert. “With this partnership, BAWLS and Intense BMX can combine our resources to not only support both BMX racing sanctions, but to introduce BMX racing to non BMXers everywhere.”
The Intense BMX/BAWLS Guarana Pro Team joins an already stocked roster of BAWLS-sponsored pro and amateur racers including NBL Elite #4 Matt Pohlkamp, NBL National Series Champ Rachel Smith, the riders of Tangent/BAWLS/FLY factory racing and a growing network of tracks and teams around the country sponsored by BAWLS Guarana. Intense BMX will also field a 4 man team with 3 amateurs and a vet Pro to help further promote the partnership with BAWLS Guarana.
“We are very excited to be working with BAWLS to form the Pro team and a marketing partnership. BAWLS supports the sport of BMX in such a big way in a short amount of time, making them a perfect match of our philosophy of giving back to such a great sport.” VSI Products Marketing Manager Pete Dylewski stated.
VSI Products Toby Henderson commented “We are very excited to have a new partnership with BAWLS Guarana. We look forward to a long term relationship and many great marketing opportunities that will go far beyond the normal BMX channels.”
The Intense BMX/BAWLS Guarana team will be supported by THE Products, FLY Racing, Shimano, SINZ Racing, OGIO, Group D, and Intense Tire Systems. For more information, visit bawls.com.
