Tacub wins at BMX nationals

Hawaii's Akoni Tacub won the 16-novice division at last week's ABA BMX Grand Nationals in Tulsa, Okla., the best finish for Hawaii's five-rider contingent.

Advancing to the main event in their respective classes were Team Hawaii's Roland Ingano fifth, Kevin Mokuahi seventh, and Jaiden Bing and Landon Paracuelles both eighth. The five all train at Island BMX on Sand Island.
