TBT TIME! For this snowy Thursday let’s throw it way back to the NBL President’s Cup, the first race before the annual Christmas Classic national. The President’s Cup was held indoors right after Christmas every year from 1985 to 2010 (usually in Columbus, Ohio) and states competed against each other for the coveted Cup. It was a very fun race where everyone wore the state jersey, made special for this race, and cheered for each other. CT always held its own and was a force to reckon with, even against the much bigger and warmer weather states. In this year we took 2nd Place overall! Who knows the year? See anyone you know? #TBT #christmasclassic #nblbmx #presidentscup #bmxracing #oldschoolbmx #bmx #midschoolbmx #bmxhistory #ctbmx #usabmx #bmxforlife #lovebmx

Very happy to finally have a proper poster-sized print of Vanderspek’s iconic photo hanging in my house. Such a good thing to see every day. Thanks @stew1201 #bmxhistory

Welcome to Buffland Bmx carnival. Looks like those knobbies wore a whole in the ramp. Also seems Buff had a carousel in his backyard too. Bet there was some mean pole animal tricks going down. 🎠

Rob Fehd with his foot on the gas in 1985. Pic credit to Bob Osborn. Rob Fehd first raced BMX in the early 70's, but put racing on hold for a few years to pursue baseball. By 1980, he returned to BMX racing - and with the introduction of 24" cruisers to the scene, excelled on the big-wheelers and quickly hooked up a factory ride with GT Bicycles. After coming close to capturing ABA's No.1 Cruiser title in 1982, Rob turned Pro the following year. Probably best known for his super strength, Rob was one of the first "body building" pros of the 80's - seriously training for his sport. Representing America at many international BMX races, he went on to win the IBMXF World Championships in Australia. Forced to retire after multiple knee injuries, Rob evolved into GT's first in-house Team Manager and competed in some of the first Masters (Vet Pro) races in the 90's.

Cook Bros Racing set-up. Some history on CBR - brothers Gary & Craig Cook of Cook Brothers Racing were inducted into the BMX Hall of Fame and the Mountain Bike Hall Hall of Fame for their pioneering efforts in designing and manufacturing products that helped both sports develop and prosper from their earliest beginnings.
Cook Bros. produced frames, headsets, hubs, bottom brackets, cranksets, seatposts and handlebars on the company's own CNC machines. Original Cook Bros. cruisers and mountain bikes are coveted by collectors all over the world.
Before launching Cook Bros. Racing in 1972, Gary worked as a fabricator for Carl Haas and Roger Penske on their Can Am and Indy Car projects.
Gary Cook was born in Los Angeles in 1938. After a stint in the Air Force he worked at Cervonics Instruments in quality control for several years. From 1963 to 1964 he built dragsters with his brother Don, Jeff Jahns and Pete Hedges. Eventually his hobby building race cars led to a job working for Carl Haas and Roger Penski building Can Am and Indy Cars.
In 1972, Gary and Craig began designing and manufacturing BMX and mountain bikes and Cook Bros. Racing was born.
Cook Bros. was sold in 1984 and three years later Gary and his son Bob started manufacturing bicycle cranks, BMX bikes and mountain bikes under the name CQP. Once again it was well received by the bicycle industry and he sold the company in 1993 to pursue retirement.

Up and Radam. It’s time to get crit. @martinaparijo taking it to the max with one of those gate way tricks.
I started with racing in 83-84 but found myself practicing moves like this more that gates. Freestyle was born and I was sold.
Here’s all the pop a wheelies and backwards bar riding kids out there. -
