My name is Woody Itson and I’ve personally been involved with riding on and managing professional BMX freestyle stunt teams for more than three decades now. During that time, I have to say the partnership we have currently with WD-40 Company for the 2010 and 2011 seasons is one of the coolest deals ever. WD-40 Company wanted to know how they could help support kids and their passion for riding bikes. After one meeting, we all decided on a sweepstakes, with the grand prize being a brand new freestyle bike like our team riders use. Better yet, why not give away five brand new 2011 Mirraco Velle complete bikes, the same brand of bikes that two of our current team riders, Austin Coleman and Dustin McCarty, currently ride and compete on.
We are really psyched to partner up with Mirraco Bikes on this program. If you know anything about BMX or Freestyle, then you know the name Dave Mirra. Dave Mirra and I met in the early 80’s in his hometown when Dave first started riding freestyle. Later on in the early 90’s I was lucky enough to sponsor Dave to ride on one of my teams. Not long after that, Dave went on a winning streak unlike anyone had ever seen in modern day BMX freestyle competition and the rest, as they say, is history.<****ave is not only the single most decorated Freestyle rider in X-Games history, he is also the man behind Mirraco Bikes, and the guy responsible for designing the bikes they sell. These are the same bikes that WD-40 Company is going to be giving away for free. You don’t have to buy anything, just enter your name and e-mail on the WD-40®/BMX Pros Sweepstakes page and hope your name is one of the lucky winners drawn in April. That’s it!
WD-40 will not only help to keep your new bike from creaking and rusting, but it will also help to keep your old ride running longer and looking better. Download a Tips and Tricks sheet with more maintenance tips, watch our video and enter the sweepstakes at bmx.wd40.com.
