Top 20 UK Pro racers of all time
This Podcast has been in the works for quite some time but last week Paul Roberts and I finally sat down in Lake Park in Huntington Beach and discussed/debated the
Top 20 UK Pro racers off all time. We start in 1984 when the first UKBMX Superclass Number 1 plate was given out to Tim March, right up to current times with guys like Kyle Evans, Curtis Manaton and Kye Whyte still out there banging out the big wins and titles.
So where does everyone stack up in this? Was the winningest National and British Champion Alan Hill on the list? Was Gary Llewellyn higher up than Neal Wood or Tre Whyte? How does Liam Phillips stack up against Andy Ruffell or Jamie Staff? How much weight does Kellogg's carry and where does Craig Schofield's Superclass World title sit?
If you're a BMX race history nerd like Paul and I you might enjoy it and hopefully people can jump in after they have listened to keep the debate going. Big thanks to Kelvin Batey, Bobby Hyde and Mad Adi Warden who have contributed results, stats and thoughts.
Podcast – Danny Nelson
This one’s been a long time coming. Dr. J, Todd Huffman, Pete D and I sat down at the Fox Theater in Fullerton and went in-depth on a Podcast with Danny Nelson.
We go from the start in the early 80s, getting picked up by Chuck Robinson and going onto being a long time member of the Firm, spending time on GT and Powerlite. Danny is one of the few guys who has won every major title and goes into detail about winning the 1994 World Championships at Waterford Oaks at such a young age; his NBL title battle with Thomas Allier and the ABA title with Warwick Stevenson and all that went down at the Grands in Tulsa that same weekend.
Danny talks being friends with 80s MX stars, Johnny O’Mara and Jeff Stanton, the end of GT, going to Giant and the business opportunity that arose, and making the decision to retire mid-season while again battling for the ABA title.
Danny tells us about life after BMX, work and home life these days, thoughts on being inducted into the USA BMX Hall of Fame and so much more.

Todd talks about things going sideways with Chris Moeller, the S&M vs. The Firm drama, GT's involvement with the 96 Olympics and contract negotiations with Gary Ellis, Danny Nelson, Charles Townsend and so on over the years.
We talk in depth about Rich Long and the passion he had for GT and racing and how things changed after Rich passed in 96 and the mark he left in the bicycle industry.
We talk when Todd left GT becoming an agent for Brian Lopes and Hans Ray, the development of Invert Events, its potential before the Metal Mulisha, the Troy Mcmurray brawl that shut down the Irvine event and the end of Invert.
Todd shares about starting Digital Media with Don Hoffman, Surge TV, Pump TV, MX-Files right up to current times working on the Jag BMX Film, the Richard Long book and its expected release and his thoughts on BMX today and some potential cool things in the pipeline with streaming and BMX content and media moving forward and so much more.
Enjoy. It's a good one.
BMX Weekly Podcast
New BMX Weekly Podcast (formerly High-Low Podcast) posted. We decided it would be easier to switch the name to BMX Weekly to link up with BMXWeekly.com and all the BMX Weekly social media so it’s a little easier for everyone to follow and keep up with the Podcasts and anything else we post moving forward.
It's been awhile but time to ramp it back up and start out with a catch up with Dr. J over in Carlsbad.
We talk Pro/Am Racing, UCI Worlds canceled, So-Cal State racing, Dvide, Grass Roots Team and Beginner League news, Grands talk and more. Check it out...
