Whip City BMX was deeply saddened to say goodbye to a longtime friend on May 10, 2006, when Mick Lauber passed away.  Mick spent many years of Friday nights and Saturdays with us at the track, watching over the first turn as a corner marshal.  Among many other things, Mick leaves Whip City BMX with a legacy of good memories, flip flops in the coldest of weather, and a watchful eye over turn one.  Mick will always remain part of our BMX family.

In 2007, we were faced with another loss when Danny Pighetti passed away on Sunday, June 17th.  Danny had been co-owner of Whip City BMX and Custom Cycle bike shop with his brother, Al.  Danny leaves fond memories of  BMX races and a lifetime of laughs and BMX roadtrips.  He will be missed by us all.
