Gate Nine Racing History
It all started in 1982 at Ft. Hamilton BMX located in Fairfield, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. Scott was just a 12 year old kid that loved to ride his bike.  He had heard of BMX years earlier while riding his school bus. These two new kids from California had just moved in. They both raced in So-Cal on bikes called Pedal Power. It was the first time he had seen a straight tube style bike frame.  He was still on an old Schwinn Stingray frame. He asked a lot of questions. But just like that, the brothers moved back to So-Cal. Soon after, he saw some BMX trophies at a local bike shop. He asked the owner where the trophies came from.  He said his BMX team won them at the new BMX track in Fairfield. He handed him a flyer. He could not believe it, a track, right in the Cincinnati area. He handled the flyer as if it was a newly discovered Dead Sea Scroll. He then took his Scroll to his best friend and fellow BMX bike riders home. They then each showed the paper to their parents. The very next weekend they went to the track and watched. The weekend after that they signed up to race. Little did he know that day would forever shape his life.  He has made so many close friends in BMX. He met his wife while riding his BMX bike. (She said she liked his 16 Expert cockiness) They have raised all three of their boys racing BMX. From day one he was fixated on number plates. Man, it just had to look cool. "You gotta get those stickers on just right." He took great pride in all of his number plates, and that, brings us to TODAY! Scott Janssens, founder of Gate Nine Design
