Elaine Holt

Filed under Hall Of Fame on April 23, 2012 | Comment(s)

Elaine became involved in BMX through her marriage to Ben Holt, who had introduced a plastic gas tank for BMX. Seeing a great opportunity, Elaine came out with the first real publication devoted to BMX, “Bicycle Motocross News”, in June 1974. She actively covered BMX races and is responsible for spreading the word of BMX to tens of thousands of potential racers from the beginning. Elaine is credited with coining the term "BMX" from our sport of Bicycle Motocross.
