Randy Gibson was an original member of the Freewheelin’ BMX Race Team in Lincoln, Nebraska. He was a pioneer in the sport during the early days of Bicycle Motocross racing. He helped build and raced at the first BMX track in Nebraska – Yankee Hill BMX under the National Bicycle Association (NBA) sanction. He also raced in the American Bicycle Association (ABA) PRO Class during the 1979 - 1980 seasons. Randy was inducted into the Nebraska BMX Hall of Fame on August 21st, 2010.

Randy was one of the first Lincoln, Nebraska riders to dominate his age group. He helped establish the Freewheelin' Bike Shop Team as one of the most famous teams from Nebraska.

His father Bob Gibson became one of the parents who spent his weekends driving the Nebraska riders all over the Midwest. The Gibson family van would lead the long caravan of vehicles to far away places like Shawnee, Oklahoma and Wichita, Kansas. Randy and Bob Gibson were responsible for helping launch the careers of many top Nebraska riders.

In 1978 Randy was picked up by the Factory Patterson Racing Products team. By the 1979 season Randy had ended the year by winning the ABA Number One Rider plate for the state of Nebraska.

Randy has remained involved in cycling and still competes in road cycing events to this day.

I'm proud to help induct my friend Randy Gibson into the Nebraska BMX Hall of Fame.
