On Saturday April 11th Alan had a bicycle crash at his local riding trails. He was taken to the Trauma center by the ambulance. Some of his BMX friends were there and helped us out. Thanks you so much Mr.. Miranda! Alan has fractured 3 vertebrae and two ribs and a few other "minor" damages to his face. At this point he is coherent, moving limbs and talking with a little difficulty. The doctor said he was very lucky, it could have been much worse. He will have to have surgery on Monday or Tuesday.
The UNIVERSITY of BMX and ATTRACTIEPARK SLAGHAREN are the organizers of the “International Old Skool of BMX Reunion & Celebration of 30 years of BMX in Holland and therefore in Europe. Gerrit Does explains: More then 30 years ago, I introduced the sport of BMX during an International Moto-Cross event at the “Euro-circuit” in Valkenswaard – Holland. About 8 months later, to be precise October 19th 1978 we formed the Stichting Fietscross Nederland (S.F.N.) and BMX became then an official sport.
Team riders were in full force this past weekend in Redmond Oregon for the ABA Northwest Nationals. The crew was small in number but everyone rode great and made this weekend work well for themselves. The drive from Nor*Cal was a quick little 8 hour trip that had everything from sleet and snow to good old black ice! The crew arrived safely Thursday night and hit the town before settling into the weekends hotel and getting ready for a solid weekend of riding.
Highlights of the trip were our Single A Pros of Jesse Langland and Kyle Zondervan both making the main event on both days of the national. Jesse would even start off Saturday with the low points headed into the third round and was hungry for the overall win! An outside gate and a first turn ball up would keep him from the win but he has served notice that he is a threat in the class and right where he needs to be with a few California races quickly approaching.
