From BMX Action Online:

As mentioned on Friday night, we are pleased to present the first in a series of BMX Action Online "Then and Now" Features. Each month, we will take a feature from the BMX Action Magazine library and re-do it with modern-day stars.

In this, the first installment, we take a feature from the April 1982 issue, entitled "Top Pros Speak Out."

We brought together three riders and two team managers to address many of the same questions asked in the original article. This will provide a unique opportunity to see contrasts and similarities between these two generations of BMX stars - three decades apart. Since there was no such thing as an Elite Womens class in 1982, we thought it would be fitting to bring a top Female Elite into the mix, and are joined by Alise Post.

Participants:

Connor Fields - Chase BMX/BMX Racing Group
Sam Willoughby - Factory Redline
Alise Post - Factory Redline
Dale Holmes - Team Manager - Free Agent/Rockstar
"Big Daddy" Eric Rupe - Team Manager - GT Bicycles Factory Team

It just so happens that Big Daddy was also one of the seven participants in the 1982 article, and his long-view perspective on present day issues really adds to the discussion.

This month's feature is a two-part Podcast (Part II will be posted tomorrow). Future installments of the series may take the form of Podcasts, or videos...web-based photo content or PDF downloads--it will vary from month to month.

Listen to part one now.

Once you're finished listening, come back to discuss. Watch for Part II tomorrow morning.


Enjoy!
