Factory Amateur Team
George Goodall is Gorgeous. No; we're not talking about his suave and debonair looks. "Gorgeous" is his Mike Redman-given nickname from back in the day; a living tribute to the late great Pro wrestler who originally coined himself as "Gorgeous George." (Hey; it's beats "Curious"!)
As a kid, BMX was in Goodall's blood, and he'd experienced success as a young amateur growing up in Colorado, racing for co-Patterson. Having turned pro in '83, George moved to Arizona in 1990, and continued tearing up the thriving Arizona BMX scene - winning on a regular basis at Chandler BMX, as well as Black Mountain. "I owned a convertible at the time and needed some sunny weather in order to use it," he explains.
After hooking up a nice sponsorship with the Colour Control crew, Goodall took on the single-A-pro class and scored Redline "Gold Cup" Championships (beating the likes of Todd Lyons and Brian Foster). He retired from racing in 1996, after his son was born - but the sport had not seen the last of him.
So how does it feel to finally be experiencing such BMX success in his 40's?!
Gorgeous George is sooooooooooo stoked!!!
