Hi! I am just looking for some of the people who used to race NPSA and NBL in Orlando. I am hoping to find some of my old friends on here. I hope everyone is having a great day!

Hi! My name is Chris Trimble. I used to race in NPSA and NBL in Florida. My home track was Orlando. My bikes: Schwinn, Race Inc, Zeronine, Revco,Mongoose KOS Cruiser and finally the best bike I ever owned...JMC Andy Patterson!

I am looking to connect with people who raced around Florida and at my home track in Orlando.

Chris do you have a younger brother that also raced at the Orlando Bmx track back in 1987/1988 years ?If so we might have went to a national race in Sarasota together, also you must have known of Under ground products an Freewheel bike shop back then.

I used to race NPSA at Barnett Park, from about '83 to '85. I wasn't a regular, but I did go to the track once, in a while. It wasn't gated back then, so we would ride the track just, for fun. There was a step up double, on the last straight that my friends and I liked to jump. I rode an '82 Skyway and still have it along, with a few trophies. I really didn't know anyone, who raced there, other than a few friends at that time.

I got my son, into BMX, around the year 2000. His home track was Orlando BMX. It wasn't the original track we used to race BITD and it's reciently been redone, since he raced . We did the Florida State Series, for 2 years and he lost interest, in racing, after that. It seems a lot, of other kids lost interst at that age, too. Some, of the other tracks he raced, were East Orlando (Bithlo), St Cloud, Tampa, St Pete, Sarasota, Daytona, and Coral Springs.
