What's up everybody?!?!?!? My name is Todd Kay and I raced Newbridge back in the day. Started in 84 or 85 and raced there until the track closed one day. That had to be in 87 because I was driving already so we just started going out east to Shoreham BMX. The guys started riding with were Andy V., Joe D., and we always hooked up with Crazy Al Cayne, Ed Haller, Miles Davis, John Tanturri and some other dudes. I remember Dom Paranzino, Clinton Erny, Kevin Rostowski, Nigel Cummings, Rob Morales...those guys were always tough to beat but awesome to hang with and go riding with!!! One of the guys that really influenced me was Dave Masterson. We rode with him a lot and he taught me a lot. He was Factory MCS at the time and I think he was one of the first instructors at Woodward training camp. I used to ride at Scorpion Hills in Massapequa and that's where I met all the guys that are still my best friends today. After Scorpion was torn down (for like the 3rd time) we found another spot in Levittown called the Cornfields. Those trails were eventually flattened and became a Target and Stop & Shop. Then we found a new spot in Farmingdale which became the Hooligan trails.
I raced full bore for about 10 years and "retired" to move on to a career and have a family. I'm now living in Omaha, NE and came out of "retirement" after 17 years and had a pretty decent season. Now both of my kids race and my wife is even thinking about it. She's gonna be getting a cruiser really soon!!!
I have a couple of pics from back in the Newbridge days thanks to Crazy Al. Somehow he still has those. :-)
I'm sorry if I forgot to mention anybody!!! It's been a looooooong time. Nothing but amazing memories!!!!!!!
