The one and only Linda Dorsey, Roger Plaskett, and Lou Mota. I've heard others, but a lot of them drown themselves out by eating the microphone while trying to talk.

I'm gonna add Rockford Rich to the mix as well, but hey I may be a little biased as the Rock is my home track. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

I choose the following and each for different reasons.

Lenny Batycki - My all time favorite because he was the voice of BMX when I was growing up. He had a cadence that was very distinct and i used to imitate his style when I announced at locals. Personally, I have nominated him for the hall of fame at least three times, but he has not made the ballet yet. Regardless he deserves to be there.

Jim Reilly - not flashy, but let you know what was going on with a little humor thrown in and was very clear when he announced. He was the voice of the ABA since I started racing there in 2005.

Tim Huff - many have probably heard him but may not know it was him. Based out of the ATL area, Tim has called many NBL nationals and brought a wicked humor to his craft. Unfortunately since the merger he has been heard less and less.

Mike Redman - Mike has the best stories about the pros when he calls races, not so much about calling the race, but give insight that others don't.

up and comers, Pischke and Roybal plus several others that I have heard lately that I have not met yet. I have to admit, it has been a while since I heard a bad announcer at a USABMX event.

Honorable mention to Opie, Jimmy Monroe. Very distinctive voice and solid delivery, to many he was a love or hate announcer when I talked to others, I really liked the guy and his announcing was not half bad either, lol.

Pretty stoked about being considered an "up & comer" by Stu...

My favorites have always been Jim & Bone.....When they're on the mic together they've got such a rad synergy between their styles....

Back in the NBL days (where I got my start) I really like this dude from up in Connecticut who did allot of Nationals..Think his name was Jeff.

One of my fav guys to work with besides Riely was Tim Huff....Like Roynutz...Tim has his own style and finds a way to blend in humor, stories & race going down on the track in less than 30 seconds...

Tim Huff is a great announcer and I also heard that he will be announcing in AL at the Circle City BMX track in June for the Gold cup/State Qualifier weekend.

I also like Otis from Capital City BMX in Raleigh. He did a great job at the Dixieland Natl. announcing the Strider races. Nobody says "Tougher than Alligator Meat" better than Otis. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

redman, royball, and ray rohm from orange y years back

I always like Ray Rohm on the mic. Roynuts is always interesting. Plaskett and Frank Fremino were always entertaining.

I have a list of announcers that I have enjoyed announcing with, Linda being one, Roger, Al Roybal, Shane Voisine, Racy Lasley, Trey, Tim Huff, Dan Rumple, Randy Romadka. All have or had great mic skills. I had the opportunity to announce with all of these guys and gals and felt humbled when I was in the tower with them.

Colin is no joke either behind a mike. Overall I'd say the moto calls of Lenny and the interviews of Redbone. Loved Dorsey for her love of the kids and her passion for the sport. Announcing with her and the friendship we built, kept me in the announcer tower long after I should have left. She was just flat out cool.
