No Shizit how did that happen!


Kyle was hit by a train after a Moto-x event.

Sorry, I posted before I saw what the ABA said. I think this happend in Southern California, but I'm not positive. My cousin knew allot about this accident. I'll find out more.

I guess I didn't know he was from AZ. Kyle was the first little guy ICON forsure. Before Skibel, Ames, Anderson Brown etc. I saw him race once.

When you say Jason Ellis, do you mean Mike Ellis (Elf and GT). How about Eric Philliparts and D.D. Leone later in their careers. Scot Merick was a bad [please review the site FAQs] jumper, ABA used his pictures in a lot of their ads. If Ray Nguyen is the guy I'm thinking of, he was one of the best dirt jumpers I have ever seen.

Galen, I live in the Northwest valley now. When I raced I went to the the homemade track around 67th and Bell as well as the bigger jumps further north I believe, pretty often. Both areas were used when BMXA came and did the Dirty Dozen. Do you remember the exact location of these areas and/or what is on them now. Obviously the small track is more homes.


yes jason and mike ellis in fact i just found an old pic of mike today and one of his mom also! jason was a killer racer but he just kind of lost to drive to make something out of it.

Does anybody know how to get a hold of scott merick by chance? i wonder if he still has my old cruiser i sold him years ago.
as for ray nguyen if it is the same one. he used to live on the shea blvd frontage road between tatum and 32st. i dont remember exactly where. but i do remember when their parents would leave during the summer time his brother joey when climb on the roof and tell us when to throw the grapefruit over the house on to shea blvd to try to hit cars driving down the road! lol i am not sure if they raced really, but i mainly just road with them.

mike ellis first factory look was from CW he was riding the pro-motion about 2 years before it came out. they he gave it to me cause the whole deal didnt work for him with CW

I was just talking about Kyle Fleming at lunch today. We talked about all the great riders out of AZ.

Jaydee Finney, Brent Romero, Jason Wharton, Fred Hightower, Mike Ellis, Jon Rana, Galen Starllet (he's known for his sweet mullets) Isn't he from Texas? hehehehe.... Andy Contes, Meat Webster, Jeff Parscale, Alex Pflug, Eric Philiparts, and the list could go on and on my friends!

I remember Chris. How about Shawn Laverty and Cabbot Peters. Cabbot always had a super dialed ride.
