The kickoff of 2014 is not only celebrated by New Years day and the USA BMX Reno National, but at BRG, we are celebrating it with the announcement of riders and teams we are proud to support for the upcoming season! Here is a rundown of our 2014 partnership program:
CHASE BICYCLES FACTORY PRO TEAM
The Chase BMX Factory Pro team will return with the riders that took their Chase BMX bikes atop many podiums in 2013, as well as 2 new additions!
Connor FIELDS @Cfields
Connor has been the most consistent BMX Elite Rider from the USA over the past few season. 2013 was a great season for him winning the UCI BMX World Championship Time Trail title, the overall UCI BMX Supercross Championship, and finishing up #2 overall in the USA BMX title chase.
Romain MAHIEU @Rmahieu96
he backed up his 2012 UCI BMX World Championship Jr Elite title in 2013 with a back to back title in the Time Trial Division. Romain now steps up to the Elite Class and already has made his first main event at the French indoor race in St Etienne in December.
In addition, we will add 2 more riders to the team. One we can announce today and the other rider will be announced later on in the month…
Jamie STAFF @JamieStaff
he is not stranger to BMX or huge accomplishments, winning an Olympic Gold with the British team in 2008 as well as past titles in BMX racing include World and NBL Championships. Jamie is now the Director of Sprint for BMX and Track with USA Cycling. Jamie spends a majority of his time at the Olympic Training Center with the riders and he has got the bug to do a little bit of racing himself this season. Look for Jamie to hit a few select USA BMX Vet Pro races in 2014 for Chase!
The Chase BMX Program is supported by Tioga BMX, Shimano, Fly Racing, Kicker, ODI, Thomson, Elevn Racing, Insight, KingStar, Excess, and Stealth hubs.
Look for an additional announcement concerning the Chase Bicycles Factory team in the very near future!

he is no stranger to BMX racing, but he hasn’t been on the scene too much lately. Last year, he was honored with his addition to the USA BMX hall of fame, and this gave him the BMX race bug. He hit a few races and it stuck with him. He is now looking to hit a bunch of USA BMX races in 2014 and it will be on a Chase BMX bike loaded up with parts from Elevn!
