In today’s “OH SNAP” news, Nic Long leaves Haro and will be racing for Hyper Bicycles in 2020!! To top that off, Hyper Bicycles is starting a new factory team for 2020!! But wait, there’s more!! Nic’s Dad, Donavon Long will be the team manager for the new Hyper factory team!
The beautiful part about it is, it’s all love as Haro and Nic ended an awesome 10 year run mutually. It was so mutual that Haro did an awesome send off of the Olympian in style with a farewell edit and a limited edition frame!! Now that’s classy!!
Hyper Bicycles is super excited to announce the new Hyper Factory BMX Race Team.
Funny the way the world works sometimes, and the way things always tend to go full circle. After a decade, I’m right back where it all started with my dad and I keeping the dream alive. With Hyper Bicycles, there’s a lot of opportunities to help build the sport and give back to the community and kids with the team, school programs, training clinics, and more. I feel that with the knowledge and experience my dad and myself bring to the table, this will be just the beginning of an unstoppable new force in BMX racing.
I couldn’t be more excited to be working with Hyper Bike Company. This sport has given our family so many great opportunities and today we step into the future with Hyper. The team riders are excited to be representing an iconic BMX brand, and I am excited to be able to have my son Nic Long in the program. Look for us at the track as we build this sport together.
I am extremely happy to have signed a multiple year agreement at the USABMX Grands over the weekend to launch the new Hyper Factory BMX Race Team and announcing Donavan Long as the Team Manager. Donavan’s success with multiple National Team Titles under his belt aligns perfectly with our goal of contending for our first USABMX National Team Title. Hyper’s foundation was built on BMX Racing and we are committed to help grow the sport of BMX.

This is super exciting news! Hopefully this means Hyper will be making complete bikes available in the near future. It definitely means a new longer pro size frame will be coming too.
