Charging the Grands: BMX Team Racer Sam Willoughby Grabs ABA National Pro Championship, Nobles and Buchanan Tally Wins


Sam Willoughby just came up a good amount.

The Aussie BMX ripper scored a huge win at the ABA Grand Nationals in AA Pro/Elite Men division in the absence of Elite Men’s rival, Maris Strombergs, who went out with a broken wrist in the first round of the day’s comp. The victory solidified him as the 2010 National Champion – with a 1-1-1 result in the mains.

If that didn’t bring enough stoke, his triumphs scored him a $4,000 check for the Grands victory, a $15,000 check for the ABA title plus bonuses from Redline, one of his main sponsors.

“It’s a dream come true for me,” Sam said, rockin’ his Oakley goggles.

Following up on Sam’s win was Barry Nobles, who snatched the National Pro Cruiser Title with a win of his own.

Caroline Buchanan did some domination on the prettier side of the sport, landing the Girls Pro Racing Title after besting the ‘3 heats and 3 finals with the 3 final points’ format.

A huge congratz from the Oakley family on a big weekend for Sam, Barry and Caroline.
