Danny Caluag

Long time BMX'er and former ABA AA#1 Pro and #1 Pro Cruiser title holder, Danny Caluag as made the switch from BMX to the MTB race scene. Danny and his girlfriend have both moved from So. Cal. to Kentucky to race the NCAA race series and trading the use of their cycling skills for a higher education. Danny has always been one of the nicest kids at the races and in the cocky world of BMX that's saying something. So, when Danny called and asked if we could hook him and Stephanie up with frames, we said "Hell Yeah, we're all about it!"

Look for Danny C and Stephanie Barragan to be BlkMrkt mounted and killing the NCAA race circuit in 2011.

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The Lindsey Wilson College cycling team signed a pair of top pro BMX riders in Danny Caluag and Stephanie Barragan, head cycling coach Dave Grigsby announced on Thursday.

Both Caluag and Barragan are California natives who have enjoyed success as two of the top-rated BMX riders nationally.

In 2009, Caluag was the top ranked cruiser in the ABA, while he was also ranked No. 1 in 2008 and ranked second in the national ABA pro rankings. In 2007 Caluag was the first rider in history to be ranked No.1 in both the ABA Pro and Cruiser standings.

"I am very excited to join the Lindsey Wilson program," Caluag said. "I have had success in BMX riding and am very excited to use those skills in a new discipline like gravity. Lindsey Wilson was the perfect fit for me with their facilities and the opportunity to receive a great education."

Barragan finished third this season in the USA Cycling National Championship Elite Division, after finishing second in 2009 and third in 2008. In 2008, Barragan was ranked the National No. 1 Girl Pro by the NBL.

"It's going to be great to get an education while still being able to ride at the same time," Barragan said. "Lindsey Wilson is a perfect match for me."
