KwaZulu-Natal's Deon Mulder is a young man that knows how to seize an opportunity when it presents itself. The 19-year-old Pinetown rider proved this when he claimed both Elite Men's titles at the first two rounds of the 2008 MTN BMX National championship Series held at Giba Gorge in Sout Africa. With a handful of the country's top Elite male riders currently competing abroad, a new crop of riders were able to sample the view from a national champs podium and Mulder, who races for Team Cycle Crazy,
For the first time in BMX history, the ABA (American Bicycle Association) is teaming up with USA Cycling - to hold this years' highly important USAC BMX National Championships (i.e. the one race of the year where the winner takes the stars 'n bars jersey - as well as some precious points toward Olympic team qualification).

For home crowd favorite DENZEL STEIN, the rookie pro of the year nominee, a top finish in single-A pro would bump him over the $3000 mark and turn him in to a major leaguer, And with 4 to 6 bike length leads every time he got on the track, there was pretty much no one close to stopping him in his quest for victory. After going 1-1-1 in the motos, followed by 1-1-1 in the mains, please give a big round

With only 136 days to go before the Beijing 2008 Olympics, the first Olympic sized BMX track has been built in Australia. Luke Madill from Penrith, west of Sydney had built a replica of the track he is hoping to race on in Beijing in August when the sport is included for the first time as an Olympic sport. Madill is no ordinary BMX rider, currently on the High Performance Squad, and ranked fifth in the world, Madill is hoping that having his own training venue will give him the edge.
It has taken Luke, his father Roger and track builders Brett Barnes and Geoff Cartwright over six months to complete the track which features an 8 metre high start ramp. Madill’s track replicates the track riders will race on at the Beijing Olympics in August. It has the same start ramp height, slope and all of the jumps are identical. This track is half the width but every other feature of the track is the same. TRACK UNVEILING:
