Mike Day NBL number 1Staats Bicycles’ Mike Day wins the NBL AA Pro National Title. Mike entered the weekend sitting in a close second to Randy Stumphauser and only a few points ahead another Staats AA Pro, Robert de Wilde, the points where so close that the Champion would be whoever finished better in the final main event. All three riders qualified to the semi final rounds but Randy was not able to transfer out of the first semi. Mike and Robert were left to race together in the second final. Mike did not get a great start and had to fight back to transfer in the top four positions. Unfortunately for Robert, Mike had to pass Robert to transfer and Bob lost his chance to race Mike in the main for the title.

With both Randy and Robert out of the final only Warwick Stevenson had a chance to take the title from Mike. If Warwick won Mike had to finish fourth place or better to win the title. Warwick did the best he could and won the main event but Mike held on to finish in the top four, winning his first National Championship. Mike turned pro in 2002 and did not get his first AA Pro win until this year. Once Mike knew he could beat the best riders in the World Mike raced consistently finishing on the podium at almost every race and winning more NBL pro main events than any other rider this year. Mike also finished 2nd at the UCI World Championship in Paris, France and was the ABA World time trail Champion.
