Greetings,

O.K., so we cleaned out the parents garage 2 years ago. Just got around to opening a few and found boxes of pristine issues of BMX news, AZ. BMX news and the bullsheet among others. These have got me remembering names and places that was long forgotten(or so I thought).
I found an AZ. post from a year or two ago and was amazed that some of the BMX racers from AZ/SoCal scene in the 70's are cruising this site. Thanks for the recommendation Cheez.
As I used to publish a BMX newsletter every week for a couple of years, I have almost EVERY race result from the PHX. area from mid '76 to mid '78 as well as much of the SoCal published stories and results.

If there is enough interest in this post.......I'll add images as much as is practical.

Yes, that's the way I remember it too. The publishers name was Kris Bartlett ("mothers custom" team sponser). She often collaborated with Bill Bear (Johns' dad) and Bob Jackson (of reservation raceway fame) to promote the NBA in AZ.

Green machine, kinda the Z-boys of the AZ BMX scene.

Roger White (13sr State fair race) We both went to Alhambra. He raced a Webco Ultimate for Landis on Indian School and 47th I dated his sister for a couple years. I DNFed in that 13sr main.

LOL Ladmo wins the celebrity race (Wallace and Ladmo show, PHX thing). surprised he could go that fast the dude was tall. Would have thought a little guy like Pat McMahon would have smoked them

Roger White, I remember him well. I thought he rode a Suzuki for the longest time. Man, that was a rare bike then. Can't imagine now. I may have a pic around here somewhere of him. we rode in the same class most of the year.

Felicia Stanard, Rogers' sister.........youz a playa
