I don't' get in to this site very often, any more, but enjoy every minute when I do.
I raced here in AZ around the early 80's and it was RoadRunner, Peoria, and Chandler BMX, for me. I could race 2-4 times a week and it was easy to get faster and move up thru the classes. I believe that I raced 15 Novice and up to Expert before I moved back to Montana in '82 to finish high school.
I remember guys like Scott Mitchell (Ralph's Bike Shop/Hustler) because he and I rode to the races together a lot. I took my connection to Ralph's back to Montana and wound up with a very sweet Hustler Pit Bike with the Baby Bottema forks. Sold it to my paperboy and wonder, to this day, where that ride wound up.
Reading some of the names mentioned here brings back good memories, so I'll be back more often.
Have a great 2017!
