BMX Friends: I want to let you know that I have made the decision to leave USA Cycling (USAC) as their BMX Programs Director. This decision was mine alone and did not come easily. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity USAC gave me and learned a tremendous amount in a very short period of time. Despite leaving, I can tell you that USAC is fully committed to the success of the sport and understands that BMX has its own unique needs and circumstances to consider on a regular and ongoing basis. Since I began with USAC in the spring, I believe things have been successfully kick-started and much of which we had hoped to put in place, has. I hope that the BMX community now knows that USAC is a friend and that their core interests - to grow the sport and help continue to strive for international excellence - are the same core interests of the racing community.
