Local BMX riders competed in the USA National circuit Hall of Fame Nationals that took place at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif. Sept. 27-29.

The race brought in some of the nation's fastest amateur bicycle racers, top pros and Olympians from last years' London games. Over 1,300 amateur competitors from 28 states competed in the three-day event. The 1,100 foot long dirt track was made up of banked turns and massive jumps. The U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista is the first training center to be master-planned from the ground up and is dedicated to the development and performance of America's future Olympic athletes.

The local BMX boys were thrilled to have the opportunity to not only race at the Olympic training center, but to rub elbows with some of the top pros and Olympians. It was a great experience all around and proof that with hard work and dedication there is a future in BMX.

The youngest of the group, 5-year-old Landen De Sousa won first place two out of the three days in Chula Vista. There were 22 5-year olds in his class. He had to work his way through a first and second lap, semi-main, and main to bring home the win.

His cousin, 10-year-old Chase De Sousa Dias also brought home a first place in his age group and two second place wins.

Clayton Winiecki 11, brought home a third and sixth place. Kody Winiecki 13, brought home three fourth place wins. And the oldest of the group, Kyle Peoples 16, took first on Friday and second on both Saturday and Sunday.

All the boys did a great job and hope to continue training and accelerating in the sport.
