REDLINE BICYCLES is pleased to announce the addition of MinnesotaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ALISE POST; the 2-time ABA National No.1 Pro Women title holder and a 2012 U.S. Olympic hopeful. Hailing from St. Cloud, Minnesota, the soon-to-be 18 year old completes the Ã¢â‚¬Å“new generationÃ¢â‚¬Â Team Redline Ã¢â‚¬â€œ joining Texan DENZEL STEIN as their one-two punch in the ABA Pro ranks. Both riders will be joining 6-time Vet Pro Champion JASON CARNES, and given full support to chase down the No.1 titles as needed.
A racer since the young age of 8, Alise holds a total of six ABA National Championships – 4 as an Amateur and two as a Professional. She is also the only female to ever receive BMXer magazine’s Golden Crank trophy for “Rookie Pro of the Year” (2007).
As an amateur, Post tallied up numerous No.1 plates in the ABA and UCi – including ten NAG (Age Group) No.1’s and seven ABA World Championships. Without a doubt, she will add a few more No.1’s to Redline “Door of Fame” on their race trailer.
Whether on a BMX bike, off a gymnastics vault, or with a pole vault Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Alise has no fear of catchinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ air and hittinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ high speeds. When not dominating the BMX scene, she can be found doing the same in gymanastics (she is a 3-time MSHSL State Champion in Vault, 7-time MSHSL All State Athlete, 2-time MSHSL Top Five Elite Gymnast Award Recipient and 7-time USAG State Champion), or ruling in track Ã¢â‚¬Ëœn field (where she is 6-time All State Athlete and 12-time All-Conference Athlete).
Even more amazing is the fact that sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s balanced these three sports while still maintaining a 4.0 GPA. In 2009, she will be graduating high school and has recently been checking out Universities in Minnesota and California.
After flirting with the Post family for nearly a year, REDLINE was pleased to hand her a contract at the ABA Grands in November Ã¢â‚¬â€œ where she signed the 2-year agreement on Sunday night following the main events.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are psyched to get Alise Post on a Redline Flight bike,Ã¢â‚¬Â commented Redline marketing manager Craig Ã¢â‚¬Å“gOrkÃ¢â‚¬Â Barrette. Ã¢â‚¬Å“For years, she has looked up to Redline rider Kim Hayashi as a role model; so itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s almost destiny that she now replaces LilÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Kim on our Redline roster. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll ensure that she gets to all of the ABA, NBL and UCi events in order to be in every title-contention, and I firmly believe sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have a good shot at the *Triple Crown.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Alise will be making her REDLINE debut at the ABA Silver Dollar Nationals in Reno, NV on January 9-11.
