Since taking over DeSoto BMX, Chris and Casey Allen have been doing a stellar job, initiating a ton of improvements with even more to come next year. The somewhat weekly podcast “Chris’ Corner” and the new theme of “Racing under the Big Top” prompted us to think of Chris as our sport’s very own P.T. Barnum. Thus, “Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls ...welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth!”
The DeSoto track has never looked better, with newly slurried turns, revised jumps and a reinforced backside to turn two. We witnessed plenty of aerial acrobatics down the second straightaway - as racers were tossin’ down some style on the doubles and skyin’ the triples with the greatest of ease.
Clowns & Buffoonery
When you get a gate full of funny characters - from “Scooby-Doo” to “Cupcake” and “Thunderfoot,” we can only assume that the 15x class loves to clown around. Don’t take this wrong; we’re not calling them a bunch of buffoons - these dudes are seriously fast and you probably wouldn’t want to run into them in a dark alley. In the end, Pickle Juicer Cameron Wing came out on top - both days, followed closely by Bionic-wristed Justin Houldson.
