The team racing action at the 2006 NBL Grand National was intense and when the dust settled on Sunday, Dan’s Competition came through to take the overall National Team title by a mere point over Grand National Team winners, Felt/SAAB/Extreme Sports.Hyper Bicycles, Answer/Everguard and Bizzaro/Brew/JRACycles.com has strong finishes to round out the top 5. Dan’s Competition won the title for the 2nd year in a row and also captured the NBL World Series Team competition earning them valuable coverage in BMX Today Magazine. A good day for Teri Sonner’s super-talented squad.

In NBL TEAM action, HBR/Prudential may have lost the NBL Grands to All Out Pedal Sports, but they handily captured the overall title – their 2nd in two years as well. Santa Barbara BMX, Rocket, V-Force Racing and CMR Racing rounded out the top 5 in very competitive field of teams. What’s new for 2007? Read on.
