The model and actress, Kelly Brook was recently spotted in a bike shop in LA shopping for a Santa Cruz Big Ripper! If you’re not familiar with Kelly, she starred in the movie “Piranha 3D” and is currently in the NBC sitcom “One Big Happy”. With those long legs, Kelly looks just about sized right for the Big Ripper.
SE Bike’s Larry Edgar recently got together with all around shredder Miles Rogoish to get some filming done for Stay Strong BMX. This edit was filmed at various spots around Long Beach, CA and Larry kills it! Tailwhip game on point… Watch it now!
With Kris Fox in town, Larry Edgar in town, Ross Lanier back on a bike for a bit after fighting a nagging knee, and meeting up with the Wildman; you know the day was insane. This went down yesterday as the guys all got together for a photoshoot day at various spots around So-Cal. It is no doubt these guys are on their game and the photos taken are insane! Keep on the lookout!
The USABMX national circuit continued in Ventura, CA for the Seaside Nationals this past weekend. You know the #sefactorysquad was on hand and ready to shred!
On one side, the team was bitten by the injury bug and had a couple crashes and sidelines. Junior Flores just turned 9 years old and made the 9-10 open main event both days, but a Saturday semi crash put a small damper on his weekend. Nick Trejo took a hard slam in 12 cruiser going for the win taking him out of the 12 expert man on Saturday, but came back strong Sunday. Chris “Schoony” Schoonover had his back go out on him Saturday leaving him to take full on TM duties Sunday after sitting it out, and Jayce was out with a fractured wrist.
On the other side, the healthy ones brought home solid results like they have been all year long. Ava made all four mains and took home three podium finishes. New comer Cadel Petrocik scored three mains and two podiums which also was his first ever expert podium on his debut weekend. Jason Morris continues to get faster and faster by winning 26-30 cruiser both days and making 19-27 expert main both days with the hardest amatuer class out there. Dave Bittner got three out of four wins in the 36-40 class and the legend Stomping Stu only knows winning with two first place finishes. One of our Japanese riders, Jui Yabuta, made the trip over and showed the fastest 13 year-old girls in America she can compete by winning Sundays main.
As for the SE Bikes pros, they looked solid as ever! 2008 Olympic Bronze Medalist Donny Robinson made the super stacked elite men main event on Friday. Defending Vet Pro Champion Javier Colombo scored a comeback 2nd place finish on Sunday, and A-Pro Thomas Fernandez got on the podium on Saturday.
So all in all, the total damage was 32 main events, 14 podiums, and 8 more wins putting the squad at 57 national wins so far this year! See ya at the next one!
