Owner/founder of Free Agent. Yvonne took her team to ABA No.1 Factory three straight team titles. Free Agent owned the late 80`s BMX scene taking the ABA titles `87 thru `89. Yvonne gave many top ranked racers their start; Kenny May, Matt Hadan, Eric Carter, Rich Houseman, Galen Starlin, Andy Contes, and Marty Christmane paving a path for all “garage companies” in BMX, supporting a large, full time BMX team for growth and making their reputation known on the track instead of through magazine advertising. Breakthrough frame design in the late 80’s which became the industry standard, the longer wheel based Free Agent “Limo” was the choice for many top racers and privateer Pro`s of the day.
