I'm cool with that. It's a deal! Welcome to fatness! I'm going to quit my job at GT tomorrow. At night, John Paul Rogers & I drank beer & then rode down by Main Street in Huntington Beach & went to the heavy metal bar, Mazotti's. I met this girl (woman), Leslie. She's from England & she was all up on me. John Paul & I went to another bar with her. We had fun!

Colorado Springs, Colo. (June, 2007)—USA Cycling announced the nine athletes who have automatically qualified to represent the United States at the 2007 UCI BMX World Championships under its “Funded Team” criteria. Four elite men, three elite women, and two junior athletes have qualified for funding. As the top-three elite men in the latest edition of the USA Cycling BMX Rankings, Mike Day (Santa Clarita, Calif.), Randy Stumpfhauser (Sanger, Calif.) and Donny Robinson (Napa, Calif.) met the automatic selection criteria, while Kyle Bennett (Conroe, Texas) was selected by the USA Cycling Athletic Department based on his two victories this season at the NBL Easter Classic and the NBL Golden State National.
According to the latest edition of the UCI BMX rankings published last week, Robinson and Day are currently ranked number one and two in the world respectively while Stumpfhauser is ranked 14th. Together, the trio has the United States ranked number one in the world in men’s BMX racing.
At Redline headquarters, we have a wall solely dedicated to framed stars ‘n striped jersies; right next to the rainbow striped jersies of our BMX World Champions. Y’see; in every cycling discipline (whether it is mountain bike, road bike, velodrome or cyclo-cross), USA Cycling holds a “U.S. Championships.” Much like all European and Australian associations do, it’s a one-shot, one-day-only National No.1 title. And in all of those forms of cycling, winning and wearing the stars ‘n stripes of a U.S. National Champion is the ultimate. It’s like being crowned ABA National No.1 (only without the 10 wins and 11 months of consistency).
For the past decade, Redline riders have won their share of the red, white and blue jerseys – in the mud ‘n crud sport of cyclo-cross. In fact, Logan Owen – our young BMX star–turned-Cyclocross racer, has already won two Stars ‘n Stripes. Other BMXers who know the prestige of the patriotic jersey are Brian Lopes, Eric Carter, Mike King and Jill Kitner. They have all fought hard for, and won this jersey, in the suspension-realm of mountain bikes. To Carter and King, who are both No.1 title holders in the ABA, donning the stars ‘n stripes is probably as meaningful as holding an ABA No.1 Silver Cup above their head in Oklahoma.
I started keeping a daily journal way back in 1987 when I was only 15 years old. I started back when I was a freshman in high school. Since then, every single freakin’ day of my life has been documented in these journals. If it happened, it’s in there. And believe me; I’ve got some stories to tell. Looking back over the years, here is a journal entry that stands out and also my comments looking back now. Sponsored by Haro? November 4th, 1993 Actual Journal Entry: “I borrowed Cara’s car & drove to Airwalk in San Diego. I met up with BMX Team Manager, Kim Boyle & got some shoes & went to lunch with him.
