Scotty Cranmer TV regular Big Boy tries BMX racing for the first time on the latest episode! The crew went to the CJBMX season opener in Howell N.J. to get some racing action in. Friend to SugarCayne.com Ant Dog got a little cameo at the beginning of the video challenging Big Boy to a battle. They made Big Boy sign up as an intermediate and he wound up getting mixed in with some experts. Our friend Kevin FarrelL(Team Mach 1 Jersey) was in Big Boy’s motos and Big Boy was giving him a run for his money.
We’re loving this video because it show the true essence of BMX racing, Having fun, challenging yourself adn having great sportsmanship no matter what the outcome! Salute to Scotty and Vinny for making this segment. It’s definitely one of the best BMX Racing segments we’ve seen in while!
“Behind my Bike Shop there is a BMX racing track that I actually started out riding on! The racing season has just started and Big Boy has signed up to become a racer! on a borrowed bike with a borrowed racing jersey and his full face helmet he is officially ready to go! he entered the intermediate class and was racing three other people as the gate started he had a lot of nerves going through him but he pedaled as fast as he could and he didn’t crash! He actually did awesome and he had so much fun racing! He made the main event and me and Vinny coached him as best as we can and he ended up with a third-place trophy! We had so much fun hanging out with the racers and we are definitely going to race again! Another reason why BMX is awesome!” ~Scotty Cranmer

2 Time Olympic Gold Medalist Maris Strombergs On Rival Racing
The Machine is back with plans to dominate the tracks aboard a Rival Racing for 2018!! It was officially announced last week in Rival Racing’s press release. Check it out below!
“Rival Racing BMX is extremely honored and excited to announce the sponsorship signing of “The Machine” Maris Strombergs to their 2018 Factory Team effective immediately. Strombergs, the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist, needs no introduction to those with even the most basic of BMX race knowledge or history of the sport. We thought about listing all of Maris’ achievements in this press release but feared the internet doesn’t have enough bandwidth capabilities for that length of accomplishments. So here’s the abbreviated time line: at 2 yrs old he was the fastest kid on a tri-cycle in his neighborhood back in his home country of Latvia. At 9 he won his first World Championship. Fast forward through his teen years where he won a bunch of other races and titles right up to the start of professional career where he has gone on to become arguably the “GOAT” of BMX Racing. He’s the only Pro Racer in history that has been an Olympic Gold Medalist (he did that twice just cause he could), UCI Elite Men World Champion, European Series Elite Champion, NBL Pro Champion, and ABA/USA BMX Elite Champion. Several of these prestigious titles, he has won multiple times.
Strombergs had this to say about the new partnership, “I’m excited to become apart of the Rival family. I have liked their frames for a long time so it was a no brainer to decide to work with them. I look forward to start on this journey with Ryan and Rich and help them take Rival to new heights. I believe in this brand so watch out BMX world, we are coming!”
Rival Racing owner Rich Rice is obviously thrilled about the new addition to the brand and stated, “Signing with The Machine and getting to work with him as he maps out his plan of attack to go after another Gold in Tokyo is a huge boost as we launch the Rival brand here in the USA. I actually didn’t believe Birk when he called me a couple weeks ago and told me Maris was interested in riding for Rival. Everybody knows Birk likes to joke around and at first I thought this was just him messing with me. Thankfully that was not the case and we were able to work out a deal. We look forward to supporting Maris and his goals for the future. His experience and input will be crucial for our future product development.”
In just a few short months since Rival Racing BMX changed ownership and moved headquarters to the USA, the brand has been undergoing several new and exciting changes. From forming its’ first USA Factory Team, to signing Maris Strombergs, to the production of the newly designed Rival frames, the addition of little guy size frames, and a couple more surprises from the brand coming down the road, it’s an exciting time for the Indianapolis based brand.
