Ryan Martin, Welcome to the Crucial BMX Race Team!
We have been watching Ryan's incredible riding for a number of years and we are stoked to announce he is riding Junior Elite in the UK for Crucial BMX in conjunction with Speedco BMX.
We look forward to having him as part of our amazing team.
We are proud to announce that the Crucial National Race Team reached 2nd place in the British Cycling Elite BMX group for the 2018 season!
This was due to the dedication, commitment and amazing accomplishments of all our riders. We are very proud of each individual and want to congratulate them on their personal achievements.
We are very lucky to have such a great bunch of people and their supporters as great ambassadors for Crucial BMX. A big shout out to our injured riders who still supported their companions. We want to thank the parents and team for their amazing gift of a signed Crucial Jersey, this will have pride of place in the Crucial store.
We would like to thank our main sponsor Faith Racewear for their support this season and our brands, Speedco, YESS, Tangent, Pride and Vee Tires.
The British Championships 2018 or 'The Brits' in Blackpool gave us it all; rain, sun and some amazing bar to bar racing!
Our team riders did us proud again this year and we received some great results; Taylor Hunt regained his No. 1 GB title after a flawless weekend of racing. Emie Seward crushed her opponents and also brought home a GB No. 1 title. Mick Gough was in a tough A final against ‘Hercules’, he gave it his all and gained an excellent GB 2nd. Alex Talbot had a tough final and was in 2nd place, he made an awesome move in the final corner but was unlucky that it didn’t pay out this time but still came home with a fabulous GB 3rd. Little Elisha Jamiera battled hard in the final and brought home a quality GB 3rd. The Knights, both Callum and Brett were superb. Callum has had an unbelievable season this year and the Brits were no exception, against very fast and ferocious competition in the final he brought home a GB 3rd! His dad Brett also had a fantastic weekend achieving his goal for many years in making it to his first 'A' final at 'The Brits'. Brett is an awesome rider, a team motivator, an essential part of #CrucialGang. We are really happy for him and hope that he continues reaching his goals in the 2019 season.
Well done to all our team riders! We have a fantastic team who always give a 100 percent and we are proud that you ride for Crucial BMX.

Eclat recently took Jordan Godwin, Lewis Mills, Dan Coller, Bruno Hoffmann, Devon Smillie and Ty Morrow to Kansas on a BMX trip! They killed every spot they came across! Darryl Tocco's filming is on point. Don't miss this so hit play......
Double Olympic Champion Maris Strombergs came to the UK for a brilliant and unique event organised at Derby Race Track called 'Challenge The Machine'. The event was a success; participants battled it out setting times around the track and eliminating each other in different rounds of racing to work their way to battling Maris 'The Machine' Strombergs to try and take the win as the fastest rider! It looks incredibly fun and the feedback from the riders has been nothing but good, most riders revelling in meeting their idol.
Loft One12 were on hand for the day to capture the bar-to-bar racing, interview riders and of course catch up with Maris. They put together this awesome video so hit play below and check out the visuals!
Thanks to everyone involved and we hope to see this event coming to another track in the future!
