We posted the pro results and report about the Lake Perris National BMX race earlier this week but we saw this photo on Dale Holmes' website which got us excited.
The rainy race in California had Stephen Murray's son Seth on the starting gate for the first time. And guess what, he hit the podium first try! Free Agent didn't waste any time and picked up Seth straight away and also the Murray's got some good support from the ABA, Fly and MJT over the weekend.
That photo actually tells it all and we just had to borrow it from DaleHolmes.com (Thanks Dale).

The 2009 NBL Competition Congress was a success in many ways and this year's event drew record attendance. More than 225 NBL track directors, clerks, state commissioners and volunteers, along with the NBL Staff and Board of Directors, came together for a weekend of learning, sharing and networking. To empower tracks with more knowledge on how to run and promote their own successful local programs, NBL hosted a wide variety of seminars throughout the three-day gathering. Topics included Local Promotions, Track Building and Maintenance, Refereeing, Clerking, and Medical Training. Each volunteer who attended Congress walked away with valuable information to take back to their own local programs. In addition to a learning experience, Congress has a long-standing tradition of recognizing the outstanding efforts of past and present volunteers who have helped build and lead the organization.
