Who are the Old Schoolers

Postby deleteduser001 » 12 Dec 2003, 19:44

OK i been thinking about doing this for my site, login your name email address and years you raced. Then other oldschoolers can read your profile if you leave one and get in touch, loads of people ask me if i know so and so's email from back in the day, maybe this would be an easer and fun way. I,ll get the ball rolling
Dale Holmes age 32 raced from 82 - present time. best race off all time Pontins any year it was always a scream. email Daleholmesweb@aol.com

Neil Stewart- raced Herne Bay Flyers and Buckmore Bats 83-87. raced All the others in my age but it was Dale and Anthony Howells who made my ringer go on the gate!!

Jamie Staff being the most local rider you might know now.

I might not be that old skool but got back into it in 1997 after watching Dale win the world title at Brighton. Just had to go out and get a bike straight away and realised it was harder to jump with 14 stone hanging round you and crashed heavily in my first race back, throwing up thru shock!!

Most memorable moment winning Herne Bay National in the pooring rain even though i raced novice at that time.
I still see Herne Bay listed as most hated track for some people!!

Favorite track was Surbiton with the water jump!!
Rode a Skyway Ta Chrome with 1 3/8 wheels and blue comp 3's.
My National Race number was 5099, only the big haro vent plate would take it!!

Now mixing it in 25+ and 30-39 cruiser.

Tim Gregory 35
First Raced in 82 indoors at Outwell equestrian centre.
Did the National series from 83 -87.
Same age group as Craig Scofield and Jason Maloney.
Founded Norwich Flyers Bmx Club and track in 83.
People I mostly rode with back in the day were Dean Scott-Webb, Martin Cracknel ,Scott Newton and Steve Williams.
Rode off and on in the nineties and then found oldschoolbmx.com (forerunner of vintagebmx.com) and got hooked on collecting oldschool bikes. That got me back into riding and am now back at it in the 30/39's and will be doing the whole national series in 04.
If you don't know who I am I'm the geezer with the red Azusa cruiser (JMC replica kinda thing ).

Miles Kirby age 30, Raced for Ray's Radicals (milton Keynes) 83-89 in the other age group of death (Jamie Staff, Nathan Lunn, Chris Bennett etc..) Made a come back last season riding for the Hawks flat pedal posse. I've got a younger sister Lisa-Jane who raced from 84 till about 87.
I've been speaking to another old Ray's Rads rider Mat Wickham (any one remember him? Bloody fast back in the day!) and he's on about doing the 30-40 cruiser thing, so if your in that age group watch out if he's back. :P

Raced NBMXA regionals and nationals from 85 against Revs, Nicky Restall, Barry Greenfield, Nigel Page, Paul Jones, Scott Blunden, Andy Chesham, Keith Bryceland and Jeremy Kenning.
Best memories are riding non stop from friday night till sunday afternoon at nationals exploring new towns and places to ride.

Turned superclass at 16 in 89 (weighing 9 stone!) working my way up the field to a national win at Bideford in 98.
Still mixing it with kids 10 years younger in superclass and now have my sights set on euro and world titles in 30-34 cruiser class.

Martin Baxter

82-86 raced at Folkestone, Herne Bay and Buckmore in my youth on a Silverfox that my dad got from Trevs in Folkestone for a few cases of yoghurts and cheese !!!

Resurrected my career on cruiser from 90-95 before my belly got the better of me...Im a chef - its a occupational hazard!!

Now driving my son around the country to race regionals/nationals etc in the 6's and keeping up the family tradition of "if you cant win - look good losing !!!"

Most endearing race memories;
Racing at Earls Court indoor @ The motorcycle show and being scared
Being next to Wayne Llewelyn on the gate at Folkestone and being even more scared!!
Winnie jumping the old slough doubles on my Hawk to prove it did leave the ground if you tried....
Dylan manuelling the entire rhythm section ot Tours 92 (I think)...before you could all do it !!
spending 16 hours on a coach to go to a Musselborough National for 3 motos !!
the list goes on...
Having a great time at pretty much every race I've been too...until I became a BMX dad!!
