Podcast: Tony D — USAC BMX Programs Manager

October 11, 2018 by  

Tony Degollado USAC Interview
Big news this week out of Colorado Springs, Colorado, as USA Cycling added a big name to their already massively-competent crew. In the lead-up to the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, the federation has added Tony Degollado— “Tony D,” to most of us in the BMX world, as BMX Programs Manager.

Tony is uniquely qualified to take on this position, as he has long-experience in both the Racing and Freestyle aspects of the sport, having been a racer, team manager for Haro Bikes (where he directly managed the racing and freestyle teams), brand manager for Kenda Tires, Vee Tires, served as co-founder of Driven Brand (again, in tires) and, most-recently, serving as BMX Freestyle Program Manager for USA BMX.

In his new role at USA Cycling, Tony will work directly under the ringleader of the whole BMX show over there, Jamie Staff—who has been running the program the past five years (hard to believe it has been THAT long! Jamie continues doing a great job with the program).

It is our privilege to welcome Tony back to Announcers tower, to talk about his new gig, as well as chat about some rank-and-file BMX news.
