(From the 2010 NATIONAL BMX HALL OF FAME Ceremnoy) Few industries have a person so well known and respected that one name suffices in identifying them. In the music biz, there's Bono, Cher and Madonna. And in BMX, we have "gOrk." (usually spelled with a small "g," and capital 'O.") As someone who has raced since 1976 - at age 13, on both the local and national level (UBR National No.1 sidehack three years running), rode-in and promoted freestyle shows in its infancy, worked in the warehouse at CW Racing, and served as Editor of both the iconic BMX ACTION and ABA`s BMXer Magazines, before becoming marketing director of Redline BIcycles for 11 years - it's safe to say that gOrk has made his mark on nearly every era of our sport It was during the 90's - with the ABA, when he began doodling the characters known as Juan Hander & Noah Footer - which are currently in the process of being scanned an retouched for a series of books. In 1999, after 10 years with ABA, gOrk moved to the Pacific Northwest to join Seattle Bike Supply as the Director of Marketing for their flagship brand, Redline Bicycles. It was there, with the red, white and black that he assembled some of the greatest Redline riders in the brand's history - from Bubba Harris to Kim Hayashi, to Sam Willoughby, Alise Post and Jason Carne$. In 2011, gOrk returned to Arizona to work for USA BMX as their Chief Communications Officer, where he is managing editor of PULL and in charge of all social media and website communication with the members of USA BMX.
