Then and Now

Greg has seen many young kids grow up into pro BMX riders and watched them conquer the BMX world. But this story is one of maybe a few that really take us back to the “then and now”. Doug DeBruhl met Greg as a young boy and his life in BMX was changed forever. Here is his account….

My name is Doug DeBruhl. I started racing BMX when I was 8 years old back in 1979 at Waller Park in Santa Maria. It wasn’t until 1982, I got to race my first National in Lancaster, CA. There is where I stood in line to get my picture taken with BMX Hero, Greg Hill. It was so cool to see him in person and not just magazines!

I introduced my son, Devin, to BMX in 2008, at the age of 6 years old, at our local track in Santa Maria. I couldn’t just sit back and watch. I had to ride. Now, at the age of 42, I can’t believe that I am still racing and that my son and I are sponsored by Greg! I am proud to ride for GHP and call Greg my friend. We love being a part of the GHP Family. Ride on and ride GHP!

Thank you Doug for your continuous support and friendship!
