Meet George Goodall
Known by many names such as The Ebony Flash, Triple G, The Network, and of course Gorgeous George. George is our personable veteran on the Supercross team racing the 51 & Over class and 51-55 Cruiser class. George was introduced to BMX after a dirt jump session behind the Boys and Girls club back in 1979. His friend, Jack Sorrels, invited George out to the local Colorado BMX track. After that race, it was all over. George was hooked and still continues to ride his Supercross Envy BLK 2 to this day!
Throughout George’s career, he has taken home some memorable hardware. Turning pro at the age of 18, George went on to make a handful coveted Grands Mains in the A-Pro and Pro Cruiser class. George won the A-Pro Gold Cup West title in 1990 and did it again in 1995 taking home the Central Gold Cup this time.
After a short break, George reentered the sport as an older expert. He has 13 years of finishing N.A.G 9 or better on both bikes and doubled up on R.O.C plates in two different seasons. But 2009 was a great year for George. He placed 4th in 40-44 cruiser and 3rd in the 30+ men class at the World Championship in Australia with over 65 riders in each class. Later that year, George left Grands winning every single number 1 plate that he could, taking home 2 R.O.C plates, 2 N.A.G 1 plates, AND the National #1 Cruiser title!
George was on the Supercross roster back in the mid-’90s. He later rejoined the Supercross squad back in 2016 after riding for Redline for 11 years. George says his favorite thing about being on the Supercross team is the family vibe carried throughout the pit. He also loves how the Supercross team is focused on having fun while racing instead of harping on results. This ties into George’s favorite thing about BMX which is the friendship and life lessons he has learned along the way. He’s also a competitor at heart and finds enjoyment in competing for wins within his age group.
George has some pretty specific BMX Racing goals for the future. He plans to stop Steve Clark from passing him down the rhythm straights and to keep Eric Sweets behind him when charging into the first corner. He plans to continue to put on informative clinics for the local community and race for as long as he can all while representing himself and Factory Supercross the best that he can.
Outside of BMX Racing, George loves to travel, binge watch Greys Anatomy and modify his sweet 2013 Mazdaspeed 3 which he is a member of a car club called “Team Hybrid”. George wishes to remain healthy, enjoy life, and attend some more car shows with his supped up ride!
I’ll leave you with a quote from George himself: “life is too short to have not raced BMX on a Supercross”
