I discovered BMX at the age 11 when a local racer asked if I wanted to help build a track in the field behind my house. I jumped at the chance and spent a lot of time riding back there that summer, but I didn't officially start racing for three more years. My first race was at Casino Beach in Lake Worth, TX, and I managed to come away with a big win in the 14 novice class that day.That was the summer of 1986. I turned Expert a few years later, and then turned pro in 1990. After three nationals and even a few wins, I joined the Army, where I proudly served four years shooting big guns as an artilleryman. In 1994, I resumed racing full-time and turned AA (Elite) in August of 1995. In 2002, I joined the Vet Pro ranks where I stayed for thirteen years. 2015 marked a new chapter in my career as I rejoined the amateur ranks in Expert and Cruiser. BMX has given me a life I could have only dreamed of! I've had the opportunity to experience many different cultures and have made life-long friends all over the globe. I hope to share my passion for riding and help racers of all ages pursue their goals and reach their full potential through the Berm Academy clinic program.

The name's Juan Hander - and if you've been racing since the 90's, you might know me. My buddy Noah - a former Pro champion, and I used to have our own monthly feature in American BMXer magazine (which later became the BMXer). Yup ... we had some crazy times back then. After fading from the spotlight during the 00's, me 'n Noah are still at it - racing locals and the occasional State race. In fact, I recently went thru the USA BMX Coaching Certification and am now a Licensed USA BMX Coach. I've got the card to prove it! So .. if you really suck at racing, like I once did, and want to get better - be sure to look me up.
I am a USBMX certified coach and the local head coach at Peninsula Indoor BMX in Port Orchard WA. I race in the 41-45 Intermediate and Cruiser class. The part I like most about being involved in BMX is the amount of time our family spends together as a BMX family. Everyone in the family is into it! My wife Erin volunteers as the Concessions operator and assists as a scorer and with registrations at the local track, and snaps some pretty awesome action photos of all the riders in action. My full time job is as a CWO4 in the US Coast Guard. Stationed in Seattle, WA on a 378 foot ship that deploys all over the world interdicting drugs, protecting the homeland, saving lives at sea, and promoting the interests of the USA. When I retire from the Coast Guard, I would love to be a track operator and continue to coach new riders and introduce them to the great sport of BMX!
