Stancil Powerlite 2018

FELICIA STANCIL: Injury forced Stancil and her GT to watch a huge chunk of 2017 from the sidelines but if the USA BMX Grands where anything to go by the new Powerlite BMX team have signed an Elite Women who may spend a lot of time on the podium in 2018.

Mahieu Rift Tangent 2018

ROMAIN MAHIEU: We where surprised that Chase let France’s Mahieu slip through their fingers, especially after how good he looked in St. Etienne … Tangent Rift Rockstar may have just bagged a future dominant force!

Posey SSquared 2018

JUSTIN POSEY: He has not had much luck with injury lately but it’s a new year and with SSquared Bicycles now in his corner we think you’re gonna see more regular finals and podiums from Posey on the US scene.
