The latest stop on the USA BMX National schedule this weekend was at one of the most famous east coast tracks, South Park BMX in Pittsburgh, PA. The track was originally built in 1978 and is known for its natural flow and beautiful park location.

The men’s side of the US Junior Development Team was unable to make the trip, so Payton “P-Nut” Ridenour held down the fort.  She was up against some stiff competition in the 15-16 girls class as well as the demands of the ever-changing weather and track conditions. Rain delays on Friday and Saturday forced the race to be post-posed while the track was covered and uncovered several times. However, Mother Nature paid everyone back with a sunny and dry Sunday. The event staff did an amazing job of keeping everything running.

Payton was on the podium all three days, getting 3rd on Friday and Saturday and a 2nd on Sunday. This was a great opportunity to prepare for UCI World Championships in Rock Hill, SC, later this month.

Haro / US Junior Devo Team Report

We hit Salt Lake City this past weekend on the recent USA BMX National Schedule for the men’s side of the Junior Devo Team with Colin Whittington, Noah Ramos & Kamren Larsen.  They were all ready for 3 days of National racing.

Colin was easing back into racing after focusing on School for the last few months and even though he did not figure in the results he put in some good laps and made the mains on Sunday. Still lots of motivation as we move into the summer for Colin.

-Both Noah Ramos & Kamren Larsen flew into Salt Lake a few days early to spend some time training with our Team Coach, Arielle Verhaaren before the race alongside helping out with a Grass-Roots Clinic on Thursday at the track with the GT Team, which had a huge turn out and was a success with so many local bmxers showing up.

Race wise, Noah made some main event appearances but no podiums this weekend. Kamren Larsen like Nashville, was feeling good going in but somehow crashed out Friday while leading the 17-18 x final in windy conditions. Saturday Kamren finished a solid second place and like Friday more bad luck Sunday crashing out while leading the semi final.

Still lots of positives to take away from the weekend.  The boys headed down to San Diego for a week’s Camp at the Olympic Training Center with other riders on the US Team prepping for this Summer’s World Championships.

While we were out in Utah, Payton Ridenour was flying the flag back East Coast racing and winning both days despite moving up a class!  Clearly, it didn’t slow her down a bit.  Now, she’s hopping on a plane to make her way out to the OTC for this week’s camp as well.

Looks like the injuries Brooke Crain substained in Holland are going to take a little longer in the recovery department meaning Brooke will miss this summer’s UCI World Championships in Rock Hill.  Healing vibes, Brooke.

Domination weekend over in Nashville at the Music City Nationals for Haro/Promax rider, Chad Street. Chad actually pulled off double wins, all 3 days totaling up 6 wins, which is pretty impressive these days. Look to Chad to be one of the big favorites in the 35 plus Challenge & Cruiser classes at this Summer’s World Championships in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

Haro/US Junior Development Team Report 

The Music City Nationals in Nashville, Tennessee is one of the iconic races on the USA BMX National Schedule that goes back to the early 80s with the Murray World Cup, which was held at the very same venue.

Our US Junior Development Team riders, Noah Ramos, Kamren Larsen & Payton Ridenour all spent the week leading up to the race with the Team Coach, Arielle Verhaaren over in Rock Hill for a Pre-Worlds Junior Camp.
Even though our crew was understandably tired from the Camp, their results didn’t slow them down. Payton came away with a 1st, 2nd and crashed out day 3 while out front. 


Noah Ramos moved up a class into the highly competitive, 16x and rode strong all weekend long coming away with 3 main event appearance and a consistent 3rd & 4th in the bag with a dose of confidence and it’s clear the hard work he’s putting in with Arielle is paying off.


Kamren Larsen has really excelled since joining our program and was primed for a win anytime.  Nashville was that time, as he won 17-18x all 3 days against the country’s best in that class.  Kamren is on a roll right now putting in the work and it’s paying off. 


All-in-all our best weekend as a team to-date since this program rolled out back in January.  We leave Nashville with 6 Podiums and 4 wins, which really puts us on the right track as we head into the summer.  Next up, the Team will be in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2 weeks times.

A bit of bad news from the first World Cup over in Papendal, Holland - Brooke Crain crashed out during Saturday’s race resulting in a laceration to her liver and a broken pinky.  Still, she’s in good spirits and resting up with plans to head back home in the next few days to continue her recovery.

As we get ready for the first round of the World Cup of the year in Papendal, Holland, we’ve got the word that Nic Long had to pull out of the weekend’s racing due to a minor injury. Nic gave it a go during Friday’s practice but decided to pull the plug and rest up and hopefully can be back for next weekend’s round 2 in Zolder, Belgium. After a solid podium last weekend in Atlanta, let’s hope Nic can get back on the gate next week especially as he’s coming back into some good form for the summer.

Atlanta Report - Haro US Junior Development Team

The US Junior Development Team headed back East this weekend to Atlanta for the USA BMX Dixieland Nationals, which were held in Cobb Country, Powder Springs, GA. Payton Ridenour, Noah Ramos and Kamren Larsen all made the trip out and were looking to continue building on an already good start to the year, as we move into the summer part of the season with the World Championships in July – which is the main goal for the season.

Noah was racing 15 x and Kamren 17-18 x, both were riding well during Saturday’s race but both crashed out in the same place in the semi-finals while in qualifying positions. Just bad luck.

Both came back stronger Sunday with Noah placing 5th in his final, and Kamren fighting a bad start in his final to a 2nd place with a real gutsy ride and a good finish to the weekend.

Payton Ridenour was on it all weekend long. Her time training in Chula Vista and working with Team Coach, Arielle Martin, is really starting to show great benefits to her. Payton came from 2nd place to make the move on the leader on day one making the pass and taking the win. She dominated Sunday, taking the win from lane 8 start to finish.

We also wanted to note and thank John Buultjens from Haro, who came out for the weekend to check out the action and spend some time with the team to get to know everyone. Thank you, John.

Next up for the Team – Nashville, Tennessee later this month.

Good weekend over in Atlanta, Georgia for both Brooke Crain & Nic Long at the Dixieland Nationals at the Cobb Country BMX facility.
Nic had a good weekend racing putting himself in the main event both days and a nice podium on Saturday behind Joris Daudet & Connor Fields. A bad gate on Sunday in the main event cost him another shot at the podium but still a solid weekend racing for Nic.
Brooke continued her great year with wins both days and more good points in the bag for the year-end title chase.
Both Nic & Brooke head to Europe now for the start of the UCI SX World Cup, keep an eye on all our Social Media channels for updates on the weekend with the team.
Also, a big thank you to our guy, John Buultjens, who flew out to Atlanta to catch up with the Team and show his support.

As we head over to Texas this coming weekend for the Lonestar Nationals, it’s good to see Haro’s, Brooke Crain on top in the National Points chase with a good lead. It’s sure a long season but she’s gaining great confidence with an exceptional start to the year.
