• Interview – Brian Jones

    What year did you start BMX? I started BMX in 1981. How did you discover BMX? My brother Neil Jones first discovered the new craze, and my father decided to sell his RM 125 to buy our first BMX bike from Tony Christen’s shop in Manchester. First bike? My first bike was a Mongoose Supergoose. First race? Our first race was at the Southport regional. Neil and I raced there on Good Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We both won all our races and got the bug to keep racing. You became National Champion the first year of Official National Racing in the UK in 1981. What do you remember about…

  • The UKs first ever International Event – Halfords International 1981 Redditch

    Thank you to Mr. Steve Wilson for bringing this to our attention. After conducting more research, thanks to Brian Jones and the May 8th, 1981 issue of BMX News Newspaper, we learned about the first-ever British International BMX Meeting, which took place in Redditch on May 3rd, 1981. This event was sponsored by Halfords and organized by Alan Rushton’s Sports Plus. At the time, just under 300 riders participated, despite the vile weather conditions reported in the BMX News article. It was the largest race held in the UK at that time. On the international front, riders such as Greg Esser, Jamie Burrows, and Kerensky Bullard traveled from the United…

  • British BMX Hall of Fame 2024 UPDATE

    2024 marks the third year of the British BMX Hall of Fame. Whilst we will continue to nominate and induct people into the Hall of Fame annually, and continue to document the history of British BMX racing and freestyle via this website and our social media channels, we have decided to take a year off hosting an annual award ceremony in 2024. We know this may come as a disappointment to many and is a decision we have not arrived at lightly. However, we are all too aware that the UK economy (and especially the bicycle industry) is at an all time low right now and many of our target…

  • Podcast – Steve Rooke

    I first met Steve Rooke at Redditch Trails back in 1997 when a bunch of us would go over to ride on the unused Redditch track, which was the home of the Anglo American Cup. Steve still rides today and was out in Newport Beach for the One Love Jam a few weeks ago, so he drove down to San Diego and we caught up and recorded a podcast for British BMX Hall of Fame.  We talk about everything from Steve being a Redditch track local in the early 80s, going to Steve Wilson’s to get his frame welded, riding freestyle and flatland and UKBFA Comps. Steve talks about doing…
