So you may have heard Martin’s 3 kids bike got stolen recently from his car right at the beginning of the season…
On Sunday 13th March 3 bikes were stolen from Martin Dupre’s Car whilst parked securely (at least thought this was the case) in Asda Car Park next to the NCC in Manchester, this was round 1 and 2 of the BMX National Series
Martin has been in touch with Asda but unfortunatley the CCTV are unable to pick up who stole them, due to the location of the camera, so Martin has been left with the headache of trying to replace these bikes!
As most of the BMX community know, race bikes are expensive and Martin’s bikes were of good spec, he has worked hard to try and buy the best for his kids.
it would be great if we can all give a little to help Martin replace these bikes.
Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this and I know Martin and his family will be so grateful for anything you can give.
His successful gofundme netted enough to sort almost everything out luckily so he’e been able to continue the season, your support has meant a lot.
“The support offered has really made all the difference, between replacing them or having nothing!” Martin would really like to thank everyone involved.
Thank you everyone who helped to raise money for Martin, it is truly amazing how many kind generous people are out there! We have managed to raise over £950 in total (a fee is taken from go fund for their service) and the money is on it’s way to Martin, hopefully this will help to replace the bikes stolen. Lisa xx

It’s a big step, but it’s here… In Trial form for now so we’d appreciated your patience as we test this feature out on our website.
We’ve added this to all products starting today but this will slowly reduce in time to selected lines only featured on certain items.
You’ll first need to be logged in to see the offers button and then you’ll just need to enter a few details to place you offer, we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
This allows potential buyers to “make an offer” for products on our web site. You may then accept, decline, or counter the offer, and counters may go back and forth until an agreement is reached.
Email notifications are sent to both the potential buyer and the store providing details about the offer and updates on the current status.
Grab a bargain!!!
Whilst we are trialling this, if you are local and looking for a bargain repair price get in touch… We will be offering discounts on Dr Bike Bookings placed and paid for in advance until 14 April 2016
We are constantly adding to our online catalogue of parts for sale, and looking for new ways to serve our customer base. Using eBay is a great way of reaching people and achieving turn over at prices that work for both of us but outside of that we’ve not had the option until now to accept prices other than as advertised through the website.
This should also allow us to give quantity rate discounts on certain items stock permitting.
It’s taken a few years but in 2011, Producer and Director Todd Huffman of “The Motocross Files” acquired reels of lost footage from the 1976 motocross series shot by a young filmmaker from San Diego named Ray Baum. The footage had never been edited into anything so after transferring thousands of feet of film into a digital format, hidden in all the wonderful motocross footage was six minutes from this BMX race.
This video was presented for the first time at USA BMX’s 2015 Hall of Fame induction ceremony at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA on October 10th, 2015.
Thank you Ray Baum for preserving this and thank you Green Day for writing such a beautiful song that makes us all remember. “Good Riddance”. source: The Motocross Files/YT
There is nothing better than being part of something, no matter if it is a full factory team resplendent with liveried trucks and E-Z ups, or simply a group of mates propping up the back end of the BMX Track, being in a team is cool! But to be part of a team you need one crucial thing, custom jerseys!
Great news, we’ve finalised the designs with RSD!
“I started in 1999, when my uncles got me involved in it. It appealed to me so much because of the extreme side of it.”
Shanaze Reade – BMX World Champion 2010
The best female rider in the world likes her sports extreme and over the last 12 months RSD Sports followed her passion and become the UK’s premier BMX jersey manufacturer.
Working closely with several teams and clubs has allowed us to perfect a BMX race jersey that can keep up with the pace of racing at the highest levels. Tough enough to cope with crashes, light enough to keep riders cool and with a fit that can accommodate body armour if desired, the RSD race jersey is the one to have.
RSD Sports use a process of dye sublimation to achieve spectacular results. Intense colours and crisp clear graphics combine on durable fabrics that will look still great at the end of the season.
Cost of shirts to us are for the moment considering we’re only making very small orders to start with;
<£40 adult named
<£35 adult unnamed
<£34 kids named
<£29 kids unnamed
Advanced orders in cash directly from the club will be a little cheaper. Lead time is around 14 days
Sizes are to be confirmed, as are the initial order quantities for given sizes.
We’re sorry to have to announce neither Alex nor myself will be at Brent BMX Club, this weekend. I’m off to Lundy Island for a few days, maybe a spot of diving, canoeing…
It’s a rare occasion I get a Holiday
It also seems weather wasn’t going to be on our side any how with rain predicted all day
We will be back in action Saturday week 27th June , with our usual support from 1-3pm on Saturday Afternoon.
Perfect for commuting making it easy to hop on a bus or train, and it’s easy to store too. It needs a clean up and a bit of a service but hey that’s part of the fun of it! And with this auction starting at the bargain cost of 40 quid delivered it’s a great deal.
You can find the auction here, But hurry not long left!
So, I bring to you Bat for Lashes with her cool choreography of BMX’s following behind her riders all masked with animal heads performing tricks…
One of my favourites of the last few years.
