  • 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…

  • Congratulations, Geth Shooter! Inducted into The British BMX Hall Of Fame

    In 1984 at the age of 16, Geth was picked up by Nottingham’s Bunnies Bikes GT. Geth was making a name for himself, but his real break-out came at the 1984 NBMXA National at Ribby Hall. Geth battled with GT Factory rider Scott Williams, and they both crashed out going for the win, but it was apparent there was a new sheriff in town. Geth ended the season as NBMXA National Champion. In 1985 Geth Joined the new Pro Class, he proved he was the real deal, by securing the No.2 pate behind Andy Ruffell, however, the real highlight was Geth’s historic win at the Kellogg’s TV Series against riders…

  • Congratulations, Carole Gosling! Inducted into The British BMX Hall Of Fame

    Carole Gosling was born into the cycling world as her grandfather started the family’s bicycle business, Edwardes Cycles, in 1908.  In fact, she lived above the family bicycle shop for the first ten years of her life and her grandfather, Harold, known as Jack, was a championship-winning track racer. When BMX came along in the early 80s, Carole’s son Clive got his first BMX and shortly after they were racing at Buckmore Park, where Carole took her first job, taking the car park fees.  She quickly moved into a role that she did for many years where she was one of the infamous UKBMX finish line ladies. Then in 1985,…
