Profile Racing’s Legacy: Week 20, 1987/1988.

Eagle Snacks Profile Race Team

Within the Golden Age of Bmx Racing, 1987 saw the two year marriage of the Legendary Eagle Snacks/Profile team thanks to Mark Fowler.

Within those years, the team won National NBL #1 Team title and took home the spoils of a brand new tour van.

The Team (From left to right, clockwise in an “S”):

Termite Hudson / Amy Holmes / Bernard Gant (BJ) / Ronnie Walker / Billy Au / Mark Fowler (TM) / Sean Riblet / Todd Lyons / The Sears Brothers / John Purse / Percy Owens / Mike Holmes / Mark Fowler Jr. / Dana Lee Fowler

The 1988 NBL Worlds was held in Chile. As John Purse described it as a “much more organic competition for the times.” The team’s were met by Chilean’s General/Politician/Dictator, Augusto Pinochet. On the right is Bernard Gant.
