With a tally of 3-3-1 in Saturday’s AA-pro mains, DENZEL STEIN scored a sweet victory in Bakersfield at the ABA U.S. Nationals. With lane 1 for the third and final main, he’d mumbled under his breath - “I think I can win this one.”Sure enough, Stein laid down his horsepower and took it from start to finish, while Olympic Gold medalist and low-points leader Maris Stromsberg got squeezed out of contention and wound up 8th. Denzel’s 7 points were good enough to place him ahead of rookie pro Nic Long, and gave Denzel his first AA win of the ’09 season - and the 3rd AA victory in his two year Pro career.
New National BMX Champions were crowned today in action packed finals in Brigadoon in Perth. Canberra's Caroline Buchanan claimed her first elite national BMX Championship win in a spectacular race. Buchanan started strongly however a passing move by Sunbury's Lauren Reynolds changed the lead mid-race. Reynolds came unstuck and crashed allowing Buchanan to take the title. Second was defending champion, Melissa Mankowski from Queensland while Ziggy Callan from Victoria placed third. Young Perth rider, Kirsten Dellar placed fourth and was the first junior woman while fellow WA rider and BMX Olympian, Nicole Callisto, finished seventh. A disappointed Reynolds walked her bike across the finish line with the disappointment showing on her face.
The elite men's race had some action but the lead was secure

The American Bicycle Association has been in the business of BMX racing since 1977. That's 32 years of BMX history in the making. We've decided to make all the years of ABA BMX race photos available online through ababmxphotos.com.
This is a very long work in progress and the older archives take a lot more time to work on. Basically if we were to have every single photo uploaded on the site we would have over 400,000 photos to look at. So as you can see, we have our work cut out for us for sure. As of now we have every photo uploaded on our ababmxphotos.com through the 2004 - 2009 seasons, with some older events sprinkled for some added ABA BMX history. Our goal is to have every picture from every ABA BMX National Series event uploaded on this site.
ABA CEO, BA Anderson stated "Many of the photos we shoot at each national event are never used in publication or seen by the public. To say that we have an abundance of photos is an understatement.
