• Congratulations, Lee Reynolds! Inducted into The British BMX Hall Of Fame Class of 2023

    Lee Reynolds started riding BMX in 1981. After initially riding dirt jumps he built his own wedge ramp and quarter pipe and just 2 years later he learned how to air! By the mid 80s Lee was appearing in magazines and riding in UKBFA comps.  He was an early pioneer of halfpipe riding while much of bmx was still rooted in quaterpipes. At age 16, Lee was picked up to Ride for Hutch and later rode for Haro and Airwalk. In the 80s, he progressed his huge airs, stretched variations and his unique style marked him out at comps including Bercy Paris and the legendary 2HIP series. He caught the eye…

  • Congratulations, Scott Dick! Inducted into The British BMX Hall Of Fame Class of 2023

    Scott Dick is well known on the UK BMX race scene as a legendary commentator and someone who has dedicated his life to growing the sport of BMX. Scott’s BMX journey started some 41 years ago when he was Track Director of the fabled Westway track in West London (his wife Margaret also handled admin and finish-line duties). After Westway, Scott became Chairman at Hillingdon Hawks BMX club, and when his son Alex began racing at 3 years old, Scott, Marg and their 3 kids became regulars on the UK and European race circuit. As Scott’s presence and reputation grew, he was invited onto the Board of GBBMXF and the…

  • Congratulations, Jane Windle! Inducted into The British BMX Hall Of Fame Class of 2023.

    Jane Windle was first introduced to BMX as a teenager by her dad, Les Windle, who saw an amazing opportunity and he opened one of the first BMX shops, “HOTSHOT BMX” in Kidlington 1979/80. Jane’s first race was with the boys at Buckmore Park with a paper plate and Skateboard helmet. As the HOTSHOT team progressed so did she, bringing home the number one plate that year for Hotshot in Senior Powderpuffs in the first official year of National racing in the UK in 1981. As ambitious as always, and with visits to the USA to race in the Jag World Championships in Las Vegas, Jane picked up sponsorship with…

  • UCI World Championship Glasgow – Ian Archibald & Andy Welsh

    Pictured at last weekend’s UCI World Championship in Glasgow, two of the most successful riders to come out of Scotland, Mr. Ian Archibald and Andy Welsh, along with Andy’s dad checking out the Elite racing. Both Ian and Andy literally lined-up together in lanes 7 and 8 – 37 years ago – in the 15 year old Final at the 1986 World Championships in Slough and 3 decades later Ian placed 4th in the 50 plus Cruiser last week at the Worlds and Mr. 1986 British, European and World Champion, Andy looks like he hasn’t aged a day since his domination year. On top of all of the memories and…

  • 4 decades of World Championships in the UK

    This year and starting this week in Glasgow will mark the 4th time the World Championships have hit the UK, from Slough 1986, Brighton 1996, Birmingham 2012 and now Glasgow 2023 in a span of over 4 decades. Slough 1986 even to this day was our best showing throughout the age groups with us bringing home 6 World Titles. We were probably at the tail-end of the 80s BMX boom but still Slough received plenty of coverage and it was our most successful showing in World Championship’s history. You’ve then got Brighton in 1996, when racing was starting to grow again after the late 80s and early 90s, during the…
