West Palm Beach, Florida – Formula Bicycle Company’s Donny Robinson and Amanda Geving headed out to the NBL’s Easter Classic in sunny Florida last weekend to take on the world’s best BMX racers. Not only was it an NBL Elite Series national, but also a UCI points race, which means the stakes were high. Donny has been the talk of the BMX world as of late, dominating the pro ranks, winning 3 out of 4 mains in Phoenix two weeks ago. Amanda has been rocking lately too, with a second place finish in Phoenix and a double in Elite Women’s at the NBL Gator National in Jacksonville, Florida a week ago. Both Donny and Amanda came into the Easter Classic leading their respective divisions in both UCI and NBL points standings with dR leading all sanctions points standings.
Saturday was awesome as dR used an awesome gate to lead wire-to-wire winning his fourth NBL national in a row and his seventh in a row overall. “Man, I tell ya,” stated dR, “I love where I’m at right now. If I could only get over being so tired, I’d be perfect.” His tiredness showed in the UCI main as dR battled with Robert deWilde but fell back to sixth. Sunday was altogether forgettable as dR fell from a safe transfer position in his semi and failed to make the main. “I won’t let it happen again,” was all he to say about that. dR’s NBL points lead remains intact, but we’ll have to see how the UCI points end up to see if he can hold onto the lead. Donny is dominating right now on his Formula Solution Pro.
Amanda has had the hot hand for the past few weeks. It showed again in West Palm, with a great win in Elite Women’s, making it three in a row for Geving. Her normal UCI Jr. Women’s class was combined with the Elite Women’s class and there she podiumed. “I feel great right lately,” stated Geving. “I think Im where I need to be.” Sunday was also forgettable for Geving, with a seventh in Elite Women’s. Geving rocks a Formula Solution Pro Minus Hybrid.
