What's in a Title?

I miss the Sunday vibe at Grands. I'll admit it. I woke up this morning to a great sleep, perfectly decorated house smelling of fresh pine and the excitement of watching mains. It's easier to be excited when your not stressed out to the point of sickness and well, major anxiety. How I didn't send myself into early labor last year is beyond me. But being there is somehow worth it all.

I know how hard these kids train, ride and live for BMX. I know the full circle of toll it takes on a child, marriage, the entire family... So today, when you are freaking out with excitement and happiness, revel in it. Ride that momentous joy of finishing great or even winning the Greatest Race on Earth. But remember, for every victory there is a loss. For every kid celebrating a new Title, there is one mourning the loss of it.
I've experienced both ends with Nicholas. I can never put into words the feeling of watching your child win Grands and clinch that coveted NAG #1 plate. If I had to: complete stressed-out awesomeness. And I can't put into words how it felt, as a mom, to watch your child break down emotionally from losing that #1 plate, something that in our sport defined who he was a rider. I watched him come apart and the only thing good that came from it was the enforcement that we are surrounded by the right people. One of my closest girlfriends was there to catch Nick. Literally. 

So, ride that win or finish because you never know when the next will come. Well, unless your Jack Kelly, then you know it's probably January. 😁 And be humble, because there's someone on that other end losing it and always another waiting to take it. 

Good luck to all our NorCal peeps and safe riding to everyone.

A Grand Thanksgiving

I have so many thoughts and emotions running through my head this morning... I can barely get this blog written because I just don't know where to start. Then, I forced myself to really think about what I felt strongest;  I came up with Hope.

I've been feeling the bug to write but didn't feel the pull of anything as momentous as a birth or intriguing as cheer drama, so I knew this morning I had some stuff to say and maybe give the people sitting around something to read. But again, I was blocked, until Hope.

I capitalize Hope because it is, after all, the ominous bitch that waves her beauty in your face, just before she makes it ugly. And sometimes it's bad ugly... But here's the thing about Hope, for as often as she reminds us that we should know better, she brings people together, creates moments in time and every so often, gives the beauty away. We can't help but Hope, it can be solely what drives a person. I know it has for me. 

This beautiful morning, when I was awake at 5 am, I Hoped for my friends safe arrivals in Tulsa, Hoped for great practices, Hoped my cheesecake turned out, Hoped our BFF's and homies from home all make their mains and finish strong, Hoped for another super-awesome-majorly-fun year, Hoped my cheesecake turned out and Hoped we continue to stay blessed to know so many great people and eat Yianni's food. Dawn's too of course. 

So anyway, my point is, even though I'm not having another epic Thanksgiving Grands style, hanging out with my Cuzzo or showing off my super cute baby, I Hope that we can be there next year and I Hope my wifi and feed work. And that I don't wake the baby when I start SCREAMING at the tv. 
Makit it a Grand Thanksgiving and Hang onto Hope friends; because her beauty sure looks great 7 feet tall. 😉🙏🚲🏆

One more thing: I miss my Cuzzo.

Bay Area BMXers 2014 BlackJack Highlights.

Bay Area BMXers 2014 BlackJack from WestSideBmx TVfqu on Vimeo.

Had a great time hanging in Reno with the 510 crew and managed to get a few clips. They pulled off a big winn saturday and brought home a few Western Division Championsip jerseys. Cant wait for the grands. Check out Bayareabmxers.org for more info on the program Howard Cato and crew have built.

Monday, August 25, 2014

  It all started with rumors circulating through out the BMX community. "Did you hear they are taking Reno off the schedule?" I honestly didn't think when I first heard it, that it was true. You know how BMX rumors are if your reading this and I thought it was just another like many before. But here we are the Monday before the last Reno. I remember my mom driving me to Reno when I was a kid and the memories are great ones. But I also remember all the great family times shared with Kenny and Jessica and the many friends we've made over the years. With the removal of Roseville from the schedule, Reno has been the NorCal national for the last few years and seeing everyone there has always been part of the draw. Being from California it is incredibly hard to hit many nationals,but we always had Reno. Now it's gone. Too bad California doesn't have the Ridership to support more nationals out west. I love the ABA and have been not only loyal customer but also a major promoter of their events and I hope we can get a little love in the future. Come on USA BMX, quit fucking over the little guys.

Summers over.

Summers is officialy over for our family.Kenny started his second year of high school today and im back to regular mondays.Summer was always my favorite time of the year as a kid and being able to share the last 10 summers with Kenny and Jessica has made it my favorite time of year as an adult. Weve been on so many road trips in our beat up old Audi, they've almost become a blur of love and adventure.So much time spent together with friends and family, and i couldnt be more grateful for the experiences.The older i get and the more time we spend in bmx, im realizing its not about the actual bmx part that attracts me and keeps me in the sport. Its about being part of a community and making lasting friendships with people we've met. Dont get me wrong, im still very passionate about bmx racing, but its not the aspect of it i look forward too. For me its about the experience of getting ready for a race and the process of getting to the point of Kenny lining up on the gate for his first lap. The time we spent talking in between sprints is priceless to me, just him and i sitting on the side of a road talking about nothing.And i guess thats why i have a little summer blues right now, because i know those times we spend together in this capacity are getting harder to come by and one day will be gone. Long live Summer.

Ive been saying for quite some time that Pro-Ams are awesome and a valuable part of BMX.Ive also received lots of criticism from people saying that no one is interested and they wont work.But last night i think we proved there is interest in NorCal,20 Riders at a local race with semis.Thanks to all that donated and participated, it was a huge success and a great time.

BMX focus part 3.

Without going into too much detail, i started westside bmx because a bunch of people told me if you dont like how we do it around here, go start your own website.So i did. And it was one of the best decisions i ever made.The original format was a forum.I wanted to create a forum where bmx racers/parents/industry could post about bmx racing without all the drama.But my problem was resources, meaning money, so i had to go with a free forum software and it was a nightmare.I had all the security measures the site had up and running and i still got hit with hardcore porn pages from Russia.I mean it was hardcore gnarley stuff. I was pretty pumped when i saw that posts were being made, but when i clicked on them....Its pretty easy for people to find porn on the internet, but i wasnt going for one of those kinds of sites.So after consulting my I.T. guy(little brother) he switched it over to the blog format it is now.Eventually i hope to have something like i originally planned, but for now it is what it is. But the website isnt the important part to me anymore, but ill explain more in a second.I picked the name by going on godaddy and looking for available .coms.My first choice was westcoastbmx.com, but it was unavalable. Westsidebmx.com was actually my second choice and it just happened to be available.It actually was very fitting to me at the time considering the internet beef i was in was mostly with dudes from back east. I remember vividly the the days of Tupac and Death row so it was sort of a tribute to all that crazyness i guess. And i liked the image of what could go along with "westside". But to be honest it was just a lot of fun trying to build a name brand from nothing into something.Like i said before, the website isnt the important thing, the important thing is that i built a name brand known thru out bmx and its created some incredible opportuities for me and my friends and family. I look at the stats on my video pages and i see that people view videos ive made from all around the world, and that in itself blows my mind.Sending someone a message saying im from westsidebmx is it cool if some of us come out and ride/hang/film a little has opened some incredible doors for me to experience things.But the cool part is ive always had a group of people with me and we all have gotten to experience things with a bunch of great kids.Because at the end of the day its always 100% about the kids and helping them have a better bmx experience and create memories of their own.Hopefully they learn some life lessons about working hard and achieving goals and maybe that will help them all transfer over to being better people in the future.And this is something that is truly rewarding to me when focus can be applied.Stay tuned for part four.

Nick Adams Vegas Semi. from WestSideBmx TVfqu on Vimeo.

I want to throw this Bonus video Clip of one of my personal bmx heroes Nick Adams.I have the worlds largest collection of Nick Adams videos and this is one of my Favorites.I believe its from a semi In Las Vegas.Being such a short track you see riders shut down alot and not go for it, but he never gave up.Keep moving forward.

Bmx focus part 2.

  So when I left you last I had gotten my Girlfriends son into racing bmx and it was going well. Kenny made intermediate really fast and was doing great... Then he broke his collar bone. He was actually done with racing and wanted nothing more to do with it. I some how kept him involved by going to dirt jumps and just keeping him riding in general.
   This all went on for about 8 monthes and we somehow convinced him to goto Supercamp. Needless to say Supercamp has been an incredible experience for our family. We've all had a blast going to the camps ever since then, but the first one is the one that put the spark to race back into Kenny. Kenny loves Bubba and still gets a little star struck around him to this day. So Kenny was back in the game and my focus to help him Intensified.
   Around this time Kenny wanted to be on YouTube really bad. I had no experience in this at all, hell, I didn't even own a camera, but I bought a little blue flip camera and it began. I never intended to focus on videos at all, it just happened from trying to help Kennys experience be more enjoyable. So Kenny Cross Bmx was born, as that was our original YouTube page.
  Originaly it was just a clip or a lap of Kenny racing, but my brother was taking a video editing class and he inspired me to download an editing program and play around with it. It was a lot of fun and i was soon drawn into video editing. Also around this time I started putting other riders in videos. That in itself has been a blessing and a curse. On one hand ive made some really good friends and gotten to experience lots of cool stuff from making those videos.  On the other hand its also caused me problems. I have people that don't talk to me anymore because I don't cover their kid enough to make them happy. I know it sounds crazy, but its happened a lot.
  I always tell Kenny and Jess about how I miss the days when we went to the races and we didn't know anyone. Not that I don't like all the friends we've made, but there was something special about the times we spent together just us experiencing a new adventure TOGETHER. For me not having my dad around growing up, those times sort of helped me get past all that and I enjoyed them a lot. So this was another therapeutic avenue for me.
  As time went on the videos got more popular and the amount of time to put them out was becoming huge and focus was being applied to that as well as Kenny. It's kind of funny because the more videos we made the more Kenny Shyed away from it. I think that was do to the attention it gave him that he never expected to receive.
  All was going well overall, we were having fun, Kenny was making progress and it was cool. But eventually the fateful day came where I started fighting with people on vintage about me being an overposter and people didn't like it. Now I understand nowadays its not ok to stand up for your self and what you believe in. Now your supposed to cry victim and point out how someone's hurting your feelings and let the powers that be step in and handle your problems. I grew up in a different time, when you stood up for yourself and what you believe in. Based on this up bringing and those fights on Vintage, Westside bmx was born and my focus was about to change drasticly.... Part 3 coming soon.

BMX focus

  What is your BMX focus? Why do you do what you do? This is something I think about daily. Since getting back into BMX as an adult it has truly changed my life. I used to live a pretty selfish/selfdestructive life and when I was really ready to change, BMX helped me through it. I can't solely give the credit to BMX, many people helped me as well, but BMX gave me something to focus on and helped get me going down a better path in life.
   I loved BMX as a kid and never really lost that love even though I had a huge amount of time with any involvement. So living in Santa Clara it was pretty cool that in my early thirties I could come back to it pretty easily. Originally I wasn't focused on BMX, but looked at it as something to do, maybe get a little exercise. I got a bike,went out,rode a few times and had a blast. I had also started school and was just going to the track if I had nothing to do and this went on for a little while. 
   At this point my focus still wasn't on BMX. I was sort of seeing someone and she had a son. A radio station was doing a promo thing in a parking lot by my school and giving away Dew Tour Tickets and I talked the girls at my school into doing the contests so they could give me the tickets. After getting Enough tickets, I gave two to Jess and told her she should take her son. I "won" enough tickets to go with my brother and his wife and meet jess there. I remember the the exact moment before I met Kenny. I thought to my self, this kid is never going to like me. We met right in front of the Dirt Jump course right after Ryan Guettler knocked himself out. Kenny seemed pretty stoked watching the dirt jumps and I asked him if he's ever been to a track.
  The very next day I found a guy on craigslist willing to trade a redline Jr for a cruiser I had. Jess and I drove an Santa Nella and got the ball rolling. That's probably where my focus started. I was still riding at this point but beating myself up. After riding in an ambulance, i made a decision to put my focus on Kenny. He had started racing and quickly started showing a lot of potential so it was an easy transition from 30 something bmxer trying to relive his glory days to BMX parent/mentor/coach/mechanic/driver/motivator/trainer/sponsor etc. And it has been one of the greatest most rewarding decisions of my life. I got to experience so many things with Kenny's racing, one of the greatest being able to experience the emotional ups and downs with him. 
  I have a lot more to write but need to wrap it up for now. Part 2 coming soon.

Birthday Bash

Today was my moms birthday. It was also my friend Yianni's birthday.  I'm notorious for throwing parties, especially birthday parties.  Life deserves to be celebrated. So what does the only child of a single woman do?  Throws a party and invites my friends. Including Yianni, because the woman who doesn't get BMX, I mean GET IT, should definitely be with a crazy group of BMXers. Yes, definitely.

If you take the number of races my mom had been to, multiply it by two, you would still have room on one hand. No joke. I attribute this to one bad race she attended early on when Nick was five expert and the parents were crazier. Well, that and the fact that she hates dirt. Don't get me wrong, she always checks in on Nick at Nationals, she knows the pressure and what he goes through. She just doesn't get it like us. Or does she?...

Tonight when I said goodbye and kissed her off she thanked me as she always does but she added, "you have such a great group of friends." That simple statement from my mother spoke volumes to me. She does get it. In fact, I realized at that moment, the last three parties I've held she's attended. She still doesn't come to the track, but she's coming to parties. This is what BMX is about for our family: celebrating life. 
Yes, winning races is what racing BMX is about, but to stay long term, truly engross yourself in the culture, means to make BMX part of your life. It's just hard not to. 

It's been seven years since Nick started on that mini and in that time we've seen so much. So much yuck and ick and "drama" as we like to call it; but so much more love, support, friendship and guidance than I could have imagined. My six month old son is surrounded by love and laughter. His godparents, you guessed it:  BMX friends...

I'm so grateful for the people in my life.  Yianni and his family as much as my own family. I've been to hell and back with him and I'd go again because I know he has my back. His loyalty to me and my peeps is deep. Do we always agree? No. But we are familly and that affords us a certain amount of annoyance. Plus I love his wife. She gets me because she married a me. You have a one way ticket to Heaven for your loyalty Dawn.  Okay, Greg too. 😁  

My point is, tonight, BMX bonded my blood family to my friend family and it was awesome. Also, anytime you have two kinds of birthday cake, you're doing good.
Peace out friends. Coconut cake awaits...

The Tour Stops Here

I've started to write this blog three times and I've come to the conclusion that some things just can't be put into words. I thought writing about the Love Series was difficult but that doesn't hold a candle to the experience we had over the past week. For those of you not completely up to speed, our family hosted the 2014 Westside BMX Tour as the crew rolled in from the Vegas national. That in itself was a great time... If I had a quarter for every time I heard "pace yourself", well let's just say I wouldn't have had a bar bill. 

The warnings came on the eve of the Tour, and just as everyone expected and anticipated, the week following proved to be the real fun. Vegas just warmed us up. So, as we got home last Monday, we knew there was fun to be had. 
Basically, we had just enough time to unload, clean up and we were planning the next adventure. What followed was probably the best week of my kids' lives and a testament to what the Bmx community can do for kids and parents.
What I didn't expect though, was to miss all these crazy people in my home. To walk around the day after bored and lonely and well, cranky. Especially Corben. The Corbster made new daddies again out of a few good men and he had enough love and attention to make him notice it was gone. 

It's amazing how fast you adapt to having 15 to 20 people in your house and the excitement that comes with knowing each morning we had the day to do whatever we wanted. And that donuts were totally acceptable. First on the agenda: a day of relaxation to regroup. We called this the Super Slide day. 
I mean SUPER SLIDE. This wasn't just any slide, oh no, it was the 100 foot vision of James Traylor.

When we learned the Tour had lost its Tahoe cabin due to unforeseen pipes breaking, it was dismal. Tour was looking to be cancelled. I said to Greg, "I wish we could tell them to come here." His response: "Tell Jess they should come stay here." It was an easy call to make. I mentioned it to Cuzzo and I think from that moment on James' slide building wheels began churning. We had everything but plans.

"I got $100 to make this the best slide ever!" 
With that said James, Bix and Shawn were out. Well, that 10x100 foot slide was the best and the Corbster got a new pool out of it too. Yianni took some time to recover but his 'always willing to try it once' attitude definitely helped tweak the slides early issues and make it better. I think the big guys had as much fun as the little ones. Until we needed supplies. All I'm gonna say is two bottles of baby oil and two bottles of liquid soap were sacrificed. And maybe a hip bone or two. But collateral damage is really, truly the only sign of serious fun had. Slip and Scar a success!
But, reality was setting in that slide fun had to end because we had a long day ahead Wednesday: Woodward.

Woodward was just plain awesome. The people were awesome. The facility was awesome. And let's face it, NorCal Sierras are just plain awesome. I know all of us there will bring home our own memories. For us parents I know those included watching our kids showcase not just their bike skills but their personalities. I watched BMX racing kids become champions of dirt jumps over and over. For me, I keep replaying Nick conferring with his buddies on the logistics of hitting jumps and each new obstacle conquered started the same way for each boy, as a fully supported Tour rider. 
"Dude, you got this! YOU'VE TOTALLY GOT THIS!" There was no kid checking with adults, they were checking with each other. Sure some of these boys have been riding together for 5+ years. Nick, Donovan and Zack for seven together. They know each other's skills so well that pushing Josh to hit six foot jumps on his 16" pit bike was worth very second of seeing him rip it up. Did he crash? Umm, yes. They all did. They all got up, checked on each other and hit that sh*t again. Over and over and over until they were ALL happy with each other's passes. It's awesome to see the confidence building in each one. How they totally and completely supported each other. Sharky earned his stripes Friday when he was the first to hit the third big jump at our secret spot. Nick followed immediately. Both clipped in on race bikes. Totally. Freaking. Rad. And I don't wanna hear how my kid should be on flats, yada yada... I know that, you know that, but he wasn't comfortable on them and yes, he learned a quick lesson why flats are needed when he almost lost his battle to a blackberry bush and the road four feet below. Nice no-handed, front-wheelie for ten feet while clipped in trick. No, not nice trick. A nice save. Watch the video, I'm telling you it was insane. Again, nice save Shawn. Thank you for not letting my kid end up in ER. Lesson learned. 
So, yeah, the kids had farting contests, jumped stuff all over, ate five dozen homemade cookies in one night (thanks Zip and Bix!) and finished each day piled together in bags and air beds. 
We adults got to spend serious time with Roybal. Totally overrated. 😝 I mean, really Al? 😉
For an entire week, we lived together, rolled four cars deep everywhere. Even to feed the cat. We shopped together, played together, crashed together, cried together, cleaned wounds together and obtained enough inside jokes based off personal information to last us til next year's Tour.
It was an experience I wouldn't trade for anything and one I can't wait to do again.

That's what makes family...

I started going ot to Supercamp 7 years ago with Kenny when he was 8 years old and it continues to be one of my favorite things in bmx. From the wisdom and knowledge people receive to the professional way everything is ran, it never disappoints. But take away the bmx training and focus on the experience and fun and its something you and your child will always remember. If you've never been to Supercamp, you are truly missing out and im sure thousands of people can back me up on that.

California AllStar race.

Alot of people sit around and talk about "You know what you should do?" and one of the things ive seen is in regards to the rivalry between Southern California and Northern California.Its been around as long as BMX and some of the best battles in the history of our sport have had a representative from both sides on the gate. Rivalries are a healthy thing in sports and have been used to promote some of the best events though out history.Well what i am proposing is a race in a central location, say Fresno,lay some ground rules and have at it.North vs South.This isnt about points or plates, its about being proud of where you are from and representing that in a showdown. We are already working on an AllStar team here in NorCal and we are issuing a challenge to our friends in SoCal.Get you best together and lets do this.Experts and girls only with a Pro-am.I have nothing but respect for the riders from SoCal and im hoping we can all make this happen.We can also have a nice after party.

A message from Cierras dad.

My name is Eric Mauldin I am Cierra’s father. I wanted to reach out to and thank you for raising fund for Cierra for this years Love Series. When your wife is diagnosed with Cancer 3 times and then your child is diagnosed with Cancer lots of things go through your mind. As you go through the surgeries and process of healing your Faith and ability to stay positive starts to diminish. It is through good people and the support of the community that reminds you that people are caring, loving and that you don’t have to go threw this alone. Thank you for choosing Cierra, she is though as it gets no matter how old she may be. She is truly an inspiration to my wife and I she is a great reminder of how strong and resilient children are. I remember just a couple hours out of Cierra's last surgery the only thing she asked was when can I put my helmet on. She has the true spirit of not only a fighter but a racer and has a great passion for the sport. If there is anything you need from us during the Love Series, races or any other time please let us know. We will be at every race to lend a hand if you need it.

Thanks again from our entire family this is a true blessing.

2014 NorCal Love series3.

Im very excited and proud to announce that we are ready to go with the 2014 NorCal love series.Its been an honor and a pleasure to work with Luke O'moore and the whole O'Moore family and help them raise money for Lukes lemons. I truly believe that Luke and every single person involved had a life changing experience thru the series and i will forever be grateful for the impact he has had on my life. Together with the NorCal bmx family and our many generous sponsors, we raised almost $30,000 for the Lucile Packard Childrens hospital for childhood cancer research. Here is a news report from the first love series and it sums it up well. This year i would like to introduce to another young BMXer fighting cancer,Her name is Cierra Mauldin.She is 7 years old from Livermore Ca and is currently fighting Melanoma.
In the past we have donated to an orginaztion, but this year we are donating directly to the Mauldin Family to help with the great expense of helping Cierra fight her battle.So please spread the word and help us change lives once again. The series will open once again in Napa at North Bay bmx on March 29th 2014,Sunday March 30th we will be in Prunedale at Manzanita Park.Next stop will be Saturday April 5th in Atwater at Atwater PAL bmx.With everything wraping up In Manteca at spreckles park BMX for the finals.I would just like to thank all of the tracks from past and present races for the support they have given and continue to give. We will once again be having big money pro-ams at each stop as well as Mini-Ams and Team chalenges.It will be a great time for a great cause with some of the best Racing in Nor-Cal.More details to come so stay tuned.
