CYC Team Rider history

Posted in CYC Team Riders on August 9, 2008 by Racer

Recently the site was visited by #55 in the CYC advertisement for the Ames Stormer. Turns out that rider is none other then Mike Muniz. I decided to create a master list of all known CYC Factory and Support riders. If you have any info or pictures to share please leave a comment or email me at racer@themlo.com

[[District X was the NBA District for Southern California stretching from North of San Diego to South of Bakersfield. It was without a doubt the largest district in number of riders probably in the history of BMX. Getting a low number in District X was an accomplishment on the order of getting a ABA NAG (National Age Group) or NBL National number today.  District A was Arizona and District V Nevada, P Colorado, later Peublo and southern area only)
