Multiple time #1 amateur Josh Oie was out at Spreckels park bmx giving the new bike a work out. We have been seeing a lot of Dkoi frames popping up and its cool to see the Asian Assassin back on the track having fun on one. We reached out to Josh for a comment and heres what he had to say.
Josh Oie- "Umm, just having fun on the bike again and doing it for the passion instead of a career. Plan on reclassifying so i can race some nationals while im not working full time haha. And loving the new dkoi bike and gear."
We hope to see Josh killin it at the love series. Pics by George Gomes.

We are leaving for Arizona in a couple of days for the USA bmx national. Road trips are just something we do in our family it seems. Spending time together on the road has been some of the funest times of my life and I recommend it to everyone. Here are a few pics from our Arizona trip to Speedworld for the 2011 national.

3) Intermediates may only clip in after passing a safety test and may only wear sanction approved(who ever is the shoe sponsor for the year) clip shoes.
2)You can only get over and leave your assigned lane after the finish line.
1)Race fees will be $15 per race and practice only will be $20.
More details to come...

I was once told by a well known bmx trainer that Kenny Cross knows how to ride his bike, he just needs to get faster. So what does that mean? I took it as meaning that he need to start training away from the track, and its helped tons. Sprints, squats, plyos, weight lifting, etc. There are many different ways to get faster but my biggest tip is consistentsy. On a regular basis. It doesn't really do anything to train a couple of days and then quit, work it into your daily life and it will pay off. My .02 cents.
