One of the busiest off-seasons I can remember.

Most of the Answer/Rennen team plus Reynolds and Nyhaug are now Factory Answer.
Ssquared National Team becomes Factory Ssquared.

Felicia Stancil: Powerlite to Supercross
Kam Larsen: Haro Jr. Devo to Supercross
Bethany Shreiver (UK) to Supercross

Haro/USAC Jr. Devo becomes Factory Haro

There are tons more so post them up here.

Just read that Kam broke his contract. I have a few ?

1. Is their any honor left in the sport?

2. Was he pursued by Supercross or vice versa?

3. Is the Supercross program that superior to Haro, and would that influence him to do this?

I think there was more to it.
If you follow Dale Holmes on FB he had a post explaining what happened with the Haro Jr. Devo team.
It would seem there was a conflict of priorities between what Dale was doing and what the rider's actual coach wanted.
Dale's main push is to teach younger riders to be professional which includes PR, marketing, and photo shoots.
The rider's coach considered photo shoots to be a distraction to training and didn't want the rider doing the photo shoots.

I believe the riders that prefer Dale's direction are now on the Factory Haro team and the other rider(s) went another direction.

I don't believe that Bill Ryan (Supercross) needs to "pursue" riders.

Thank you Carl, I appreciate the kind words.

And Ant Dog, I actually thought you would have more common sense than to believe everything you read, and or try to add any kind of shade to things that you don't know about.

I have given props to Dale for his YMCA program, and how he has tried to promote BMX. And he is the one that published a few weeks ago how the entire Jr. Devo program disbanded and that things had blown up. It is sad for all parties involved, and for people that aren't involved to try to cast any kind of negativity to anyone is a sad state of affairs.

Was not trying to cast shade sorry if it was taken that way, I was out of the loop and just asking questions.

Thank you Ant Dog, it did come across that way. Kamren is a very nice young man and doesn't deserve any ill will on this . And i know there are a few who love to hate on our brand, and it is just unfortunate that people have tried to make this be a bad thing for him. But even though he is not racing, he is in Vegas hanging out with and cheering for his new Supercross Team this weekend.

Have a great day!

Bill

I have been around since the beginning of SUPERCROSS no hate here. And this is not a kiss-up, were I to ever go carbon it would be your brand. One of the main factors, it still resembles a classic BMX bike.

I am just hurt that you never approached me to ride for you hahahhaa
