Some Double Damage in DeSoto by Team Redline
By the BMX Race team on March 20, 2012
Team manager Jason Carnes led a strong and ascending Team Redline into the Super National at Desoto, TX and by the time the dust had cleared and the weekend was over Redline fans had plenty to cheer about.
On Saturday, Redline lined up Sam Willoughby, Tory Nyhaug, French rider Damien Godet, and getting faster every day, hometown star Denzel Stein. When it came to the final, Tory Nyhaug took a strong sixth and Sam Willoughby gapped the field for a decisive win in the Elite Men’s event.
In the Women’s Elite event, Alise Post reconfirmed that her successful comeback from injury is for-real by placing as the top US rider in third place.
TM Jason Carnes not only kept the RL team machine running smoothly, but he also had a successful day on the track against the always tough Vet Pro field. Fourth place for Jason!
Sunday was another bright, sunny day for the Red, White and Black. In the Elite Men’s event, Sam Willoughby completed his ‘double’ for the weekend by winning against a stacked field. And Alise Post scored her second victory of the young season by winning the Women’s Elite event.
In addition to Redline’s top guns, Redline also had a strong showing by it’s Regional Development Teams including Florida based Redline/M-1, Texas based ORP, Minnesota based Redline/Adventure and California based Redline/Bike Alley. A big shout-out goes to ORP rider Paige Norton who won the 14 girls events both days on her freshly hand autographed Redline/Alise Post Flight frame!
Redline riders Elliott McGrath of Stile Industries/Redline and Travis Ohrazda also made the journey to Desoto to compete in the always competitive A-Pro class.
The Super National in Desoto served as a final tune-up for the Redline pros as they now move on to Chula Vista where they will begin their final push for the London Olympics on the Olympic Training Center Supercross track.
Joining the team in Chula Vista will be AM #1 Josh Klatman who will be competing in both the So Cal National as well as the first USAC Collegiate National Championships.
Race fans can follow Redline riders on both Facebook and Twitter by finding Redline Bicycles on either service.
