BMX Racing Team

The resurgence of BMX racing sprung an interest in our area and seemed really appealing to mainly the older guys who have been riding skateparks and flatland for decades.  Could there be a better reason to form a racing team?  We think not!  Supporting riders at the grassroots level has always been a focus at Solon Bicycle, and we are proud to have assembled a team of awesome humans ranging from age 4 to 51.

Andy Pauken

Andy's a lifelong cyclist who went 0 to 100 with BMX within the past few years.  His passion and dedication shine bright like a diamond.  Everyone has been keeping a keen eye on this ripper and most have noticed that a good work ethic rarely goes unnoticed.  Big things are ahead for this rockstar!

John Pullman

John started racing in the early 80s and quickly changed gears to start freestyling.  30ish years later, he has revived his passion and it truly shows in his racing performance.  We wouldn't have assembled this team had it not been for John's desire to start racing again.  Thanks, John!

Bryan Chapdelaine

Bryan is new to racing BMX, but not new to all things extreme!  Spending many years as a rollerblader, skater, BMX park rider, and was a purely natural next step.  Like most things, Bryan instantly took to the sport and has been having a blast ever since!

Judah Chapdelaine

Son of Bryan, Judah is naturally a little hotshot at the track!  Although he's still racing on the balance bike track, he's gonna be an absolute terror once he gets on the big track and we are psyched!

Danny Sirkin

Having raced only 4 times in the mid-80s, and not being very good at it, Danny never even thought twice about entering another track. Switching to flatland freestyle for the past 34 years seemed to make more sense. But after John's nudge to race, he was hooked.  This is BMX in it's purest form and he has been having a great time riding, hanging out, and getting to know the awesome extended BMX family at the local track.

Jamie Sinyard

Jamie is our Canadian brutha from anotha mutha!  A former flatlander as well, Jamie is sharpening his chops at various Toronto tracks as we speak.  Jamie also runs his own apparel company that is co-sponsoring  our team.  Check it out at

Bill Walters

Bill loves BMX and has a sweet collection of incredibly rad bikes!  His chill attitude and dry sense of humor always keep us laughing, which is helpful, because admittedly, we sometimes take it too seriously!

Nick Capp

As a new racer, we watched Nick study what the other guys were doing and saw him quickly rise to the top of his class. Never underestimate the "bowling ball," because he gains momentum when you'd least expect it! We look forward to seeing Nick progress this season!

Paul Grenade

Paul has been riding BMX and motocross since the dawn of time.  We annoyed the heck out of him for practically months until he decided to join the fun.  We are all anticipating a clean 360 in one of his motos sometime soon!
