AM SUPERCROSS WIN!

I had a blast riding a BMX Supercross track for the first time since the World Championships in New Zealand of 2013. After a while, it was kind of hard to get used to the hill in one practice session. Luckily, towards the end of the 40 minute practice I was figuring out the kink again, and felt comfortable. USA BMX didn't want the amateurs to hit the berm jump, so we had to go left out of the first turn. 

I didn't lose a lap all day, and it felt great to execute in the main event and take home a win. This was my first Am SX race, but I plan on racing every Am Supercross Open next year. 

Overall the weekend was a blast. I raced up on the Amateur track sat-sunday, and battled for the Gold Cup #1 plate. Unfortunately I lost the lead in the second turn Sunday, costing me the number #1 plate, but earning myself the Gold Cup #2 plate. I look forward to racing more AM SX races next year, and hope USA BMX can give us, amateurs, a title for the series! 

Bryce Betts Designs WORLD CHAMPIONS (number plates)

Watching the worlds was impossible while i was at Chico for a national, but I did watch the replay on redbull.tv and could not be happier! 

With Niek Kimmannn winning the Elite Men category in Zolder, Belgium, and Stefany Hernandez winning the Elite Women's category, I had to quickly make room for two new BMX racing plate designs.

It was a lot of fun designing w1 plates and I can't wait to see them in person.

Had you told me two years ago that through graphic design I would be working on two elite world champions plates in one year I wouldn't have believed you! 

Congrats to Niek Kimmannn as well as Stefany Hernandez!

*note - Stefany wants to continue to use her 469 number while carrying the rainbow stripes. I just was too pumped on the w1 plate to not share!*

  In case you missed the race action, be sure to watch both of their helmet cam views of their wins. 

33,4 sec to "Gold" .... join Niek Kimmann on his run in Zolder .... "No way, I'm leading the World Championships final!" That's what went through Niek Kimmann's mind as he came out of turn two where leader Sam Willoughby (AUS) hit the tarmac as he tried to hold off the Dutchman....

Also as bonus for Niek, I designed some stickers for him to hand out to local kids. Pretty pumped on how his "logo" design came out.
