While spending the year celebrating 30 years in business, the American Bicycle Association has also been extremely busy building new BMX tracks. This year 17 new tracks have been fostered into operation thanks to the efforts of local organizations and the ABA. The mark of any company is growth. In the business of BMX, growth can be measured in two ways, memberships and sanctioned BMX race tracks. Not since the early seventies and eighties has growth of this magnitude occurred in a single year.
Free Agent, the world champion BMX race team, has just signed Free Agent New Zealand's Marc Willers to the World Team for the 2008 race season, announced team manager Dale Holmes.

Marc will be focusing on the Oceanic series, the UCI World Cup and the World Championships in China before final preparations and qualification selection for the Beijing Olympics next summer.
“'We're really stoked to have Marc on the program,” said Holmes.

Intense BMX AA Pro Danny Caluag went into the ABA Grands with a chance to make history, as he lead the chase for the ABA #1 Pro Title in both AA Pro and Pro Cruiser. When the ABA Grands were over, Danny walked away with both the AA Pro and Pro Cruiser #1 Pro titles. This was the first time in the history of the ABA for one Pro to win both titles in the same season.

What was supposed to be an easy cruise to the finish line for Danny Caluag to grab his first ABA Pro title turned out to be a close battle with Kyle Bennett. Because two racers crashed in the semi Kyle transfered to the finals where Danny had secured a spot already. Kyle was on fire and scored a 1-1-2 in the three mains. Danny did not make a Brian Foster mistake and still managed to take the title by finishing 6-4-6. It was close though. Girls Pro went to Alise Post and the Vet pro title was for Jason Carnes.
