Looking for the next Super Pro! ..... with dale Holmes at BMX Pro For a Week" YMCA Summer Camp
In celebration of our second year of, “BMX Pro for a Week”, summer camp through a cooperative adventure with the YMCA of San Diego County – we at Chase / Dale Holmes Racing had a new edit done to show you first-hand a day in the life of our campers.

We cover bike and street safety, the importance of wearing protective gear, why leading a healthful lifestyle is important both on and off the track and the fundamentals of BMX Racing.

Our ultimate goal is to introduce the sport of BMX racing to more kids and to excite those already interested in getting more involved.

Today's BMX Mania Photo Of The Day is a sad story for BOX Components, Marc Willers/NZL who is pictured here, the victim of some real bad luck.

At the UCI BMX Worlds in Zolder, Belgium last weekend, the rain came in hard and early, and the UCI decided to cut the motos to 'one lap, no crap' to shorten the race due to the inclement weather.

Marc was motorin' along in qualifying postion when Steven Cisar/USA lost control in the second straight pro section causing his bike to hit Marc and sending Willers in to a High Flying detour over the Pro Doubles.

The whole process eliminated Marc from advancing to the elimination rounds, but resulted in a pretty spectacular photo! Photo by Jerry Landrum/

2016 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup schedule unveiled

In the Olympic year the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup will host an exciting five stop tour. The best BMX athletes will race three UCI BMX SX races before the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and two races in the USA to finish up the year 2016.

For the first time Santiago Del Estero will welcome the BMX athletes for the first race of the season. Santiago Del Estero is a racer's favorite because of the many fans that show up at this World Cup and it's the fourth time the World Cup series visits Argentina.

The indoor BMX facility Manchester Cycling Centre has hosted the first race on the World Cup season from 2013 to 2015. Each time it was Liam Phillips (GBR) who came out on top and will be the man to beat once again when the circuit returns to the only indoor BMX Supercross facility in April.

Papendal has been on the World Cup calendar for five years and in 2016 the wide open track at the Olympic training centre will be modified from the end of the second straight onwards for new challenges.

After the Olympic break in August, Rock Hill will use round four as a true test event as they’re gearing up for the 2017 UCI BMX World Championships. BMX Supercross racing on the American East Coast will continue two weeks later as the season comes to a close on the brand new BMX Supercross track in Sarasota which is currently going through pre-construction stage.

Sarasota BMX recently celebrated its 40th year of BMX and is one of the original BMX tracks in the USA.

2016 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup schedule

26-27 March 2016* - UCI BMX SX World Cup Round 1: Santiago Del Estero (ARG)

9-10 April 2016 - UCI BMX SX World Cup Round 2: Manchester (GBR)

TORONTO / U.S. Olympic Committee News Release -- Felicia Stancil overcame a crash-filled women’s BMX final and came out on top amidst a field that included an Olympic champion and world champion to win Team USA’s first gold medal at the 2015 Pan American Games Saturday in Toronto.

Meanwhile, Nic Long claimed bronze in an equally chaotic men’s race.

Stancil, 20, brimmed with elation and disbelief as she greeted her family and snapped pictures with fans.

The Chicago-area native began training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California, after turning pro a year ago. She’s now regularly competing against some of the world’s best after spending most of her young career against those her own age.

“I think this is my first big win against the big girls,” she said.

Stancil crossed the finish line in 41.647 seconds after a massive pile-up in the first turn that claimed half the field, including teammate Alise Post, who had finished second, second and first in her three semifinal heats.

Post was not credited a disqualification and finished sixth, 40 seconds behind Stancil.

“A crash can just happen right in front of you, and you’re going 30 miles per hour,” Stancil said. “You just have to think really fast and be lucky. We’re in motors all day battling. They’re all fast here. It stinks for them and I wish them the best in the next race.”

In the men’s final, Long won bronze in a similarly chaotic finish after third-place finisher Carlos Ramirez of Colombia was disqualified in an off-course steer that also claimed Team USA’s Connor Fields.

Fields, one of the world’s top-ranked cyclists, was among the favorites heading into the medal race after sweeping all three of his heats in the quarterfinals.

“It’s BMX – it can happen at any time,” said Canada’s Tory Nyhaug, who claimed gold. “Nothing is for sure in this sport, if I’ve learned anything.”

Regardless of their final finish, all four U.S. athletes led the way throughout the qualifying rounds of the BMX competition in Toronto.

Stancil credited the team’s success to the Olympic Training Center, home of a state-of-the-art BMX facility where all four that competed on Saturday train. The track undergoes a regular overhaul to adapt to the forecasted venue that will be used in the upcoming Olympics.

“They just changed it up, so the track in Chula is actually going to be harder than the Rio track,” Stancil said. “It’ll be good because a lot of countries are training on our facility right now. It’ll be good because if you can do that well, if you can get that track as good as you can, the Olympic track will seem easy.”

King Of Prague Race Report.....Big Money in the Czech!
1st Liam Phillips (GBR) 1st Elke Van Hoof (BEL)
2nd Kyle Evans (GBR) 2nd Aneta Ladikova (CZE)
3rd Jan Svub (CZE) 3rd Ramona Labounkova (CZE)

In the end of June you had a chance to see a great race in Prague, Czech Republic at the awesome new and upcoming BMX Club, UAMK Bikrosclub Repy where some of the best BMX riders from all over the world competed in the qualification race for UCI points, leading to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro 2016. There's no doubt that you couldn't see anything better than this in the whole of the Czech Republic, maybe in all of Europe.

This race started on Friday 19th of June 2015 with an extraordinary cold training day for the riders. Everything went good though and all riders were really happy with the track in UAMK Bikrosclub Repy, run by former World Class Elite BMXer, Lukas Tamme. Everyone was saying that this track is on the high level.

On Saturday and Sunday there were 291 riders from 14 countries all over the world (England, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Hungary, Germany, New Zealand, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and Czech Republic. You could see little riders 6 years old, then the youth, elite riders and riders 30+.

From this amount of people there were 89 riders representing the home club of UAMK Bikrosclub Repy! An awesome and growing BMX Club in Europe! In the evening after Friday's training it started to rain and it lasted till the next morning. Fortunately it stopped raining around 7am. We were happy that the track got dry during the training time. There are all categories registered for this race - competitors from 6 years, 7-8 years, 8-9 years, 9-10 years, 11-12 years, 13-14 years, 15-16 years, 17+, Cruiser and the top represent by Junior men, Junior women, ELITE Men and finally, the ELITE Women.

Here we go!!!

On Saturday morning the Kids started to train hard in front of the coaches, the world elite riders and the parents. They fell down sometimes, but showed tremendous spirit when they got up and continue paddling on their bikes! During a qualification race we had to experience a little hurricane so we had to take a break for a few minutes. When the rain stopped, the organizers had to clean the turns to be able to start the race again, but they worked hard, the track surface held up GREAT and we were ready to race, AGAIN.

Step by step we got to the semi-finals even though the weather wasn’t really good. In the Elite semi-finals British rider Liam Phillips finished as the first from the Elite Man category, but the second semi-final saw Kyle Evans taking the semi win. Unfortunately in the semi-final our club riders, Adam Brezina and Matej Chalupny were eliminated. The Rest of the Czech riders didn’t even have enough points for the semi-finals including Tomas Klouda, Jakub Bohuslavek, Tomas Haluza and Radim Sousedik. Too bad for the locals!

Only one Czech rider Jan Svub was strong in competition all day, racing really close with the top Elite mens riders. In the finals he had to fight with the best BMX riders including British Liam Philips, Kyle Evans and Netherland riders  Martijn Jaspers and Jordy van der Heijden, The rest of the main event were Australian Matt Cameron, Germany's Luis Brethauer and the legendary Swiss rider, Yvan Lapraz.

BOOM! Gate goes down, wheels start spinning and everybody flew from the starting hill straight to the first jump. At the first position came Liam Philips closely followed by his teammate Kyle Evans. Unfortunately our rider Jan Svub didn’t have a good start, so he tried hard to get more forward, before British and Dutch men, but not successfully.

Sunday had just begun, and we supposed to make a everything all over again.  At the morning the weather was really nice, sun was shining and the place around the track started to be full of BMX fans. We began the same as Saturday with youngest riders only 6 years old. We enjoyed a perfect race, which was a little bit disturbed by rain.

After rain we begun a semi-final runs. For Czech riders the semi-finals weren't very successful, our riders Marcel Pesek, Jakub Bohuslavek, Stepan Tumpach, Tomas Merta, Radim Sousedik were out of the race, same like Adam Brezina who quit after hard crash. The racing was fast and furious through all the day, and all of us were ready for the final runs.

The Final runs were planned same like Saturday, from youngest riders, through cruisers to Elite Men. Czech rider Jan Švub qualified for the final just after the British riders.  The crowd got quiet, music was turned down and speaker hold his breath. From gate we heard: Riders ready? Watch the gate!!! Red light, green light and gate goes down, crowd start shouting and speaker pushing the riders to the limit.

Liam Phillips had an amazing start nearly followed by Evans, Lapraz and SVUB!!! In the first corner the home rider Jan Švub from Czech was going for the third position, and the crowd was going crazy! The riders used an amazing speed from the first turn to the jump in PRO - section perfectly.

At the rhythm section Czech rider Jan Svub trying as he can to overtake Kyle Evans, but it doesn’t work… Last turn and last few jumps, Czech rider tried from the left, from the right down the last straight but Evans is still leading, so we are in the finish. Phillips got the first place, Evans got the second place, SVUB!!! got third place and Lapraz the fourth….. 

The race was over and we began a final ceremony. Everybody liked the track and they were very surprised how the Czech fans mad for an amazing atmosphere with their BMX Power!!!! After ceremony everybody made a picture with their idols and take an autograph. We would like to thank everybody, riders, fans and organization team for an awesome event. Look for more from our club!

And, from Martijn Jaspers from The Netherlands, "I’m really happy that I came to Prague for this race. I have three weekends full of races and this one was the second one, so I came to enjoy it for 100%. This was by far the best Czech track and I had a lot of fun here. The track is fast, flowing, entertaining and the asphalt is perfect. I was happy with a good final on Saturday and I got the third place." ..... Thanks, Martijn!

We have to thank very much to our sponsors, and our UAMK Bikrosclub Repy club for organisation of this great event, riders, speakers and mainly our supports who made this amazing atmosphere in Repy!

Deanna Edwards Jamieson, BMX Hall of Famer, Loses Battle With Cancer
BMX Lady Legend, Deanna Edwards Jamieson passed away Monday after a short but valiant battle with cancer.

Deanna made her mark in BMX in the 80's as one of the fastest of the Fast Ladies on the track, racing at the Factory level for Columbus Schwinn, GT Factory and World Class Racing.

During her BMX racing career, Deanna accomplished more than most riders with multiple ABA and NBL National Championships, a 16 & Over Girls Murray World Cup Championship, an ABA Girls International Super Bowl of BMX Championship, and IBMXF and UCI World Championships!

After such a successful amateur BMX career, Edwards retired from BMX racing 1987 but returned to BMX with a vengeance in 2004, signing on with Supercross BMX and winning both ABA national and UCI world championships.

In October 2014 at the USABMX Hall of Fame Banquet, Deanna was honored with a place in the U.S BMX Hall of Fame as the Women's Racing nominee.

She will be missed by hundreds of BMXers whose lives she touched in her early and later career in BMX racing, as well as her loving family. Prayers and best wishes are extended to the Edwards-Jamieson family from BMX Mania Dot Com.

She will be missed and honored as a true BMXer who made a difference. Deanna Edwards Jamieson, Rest In Peace.

ANSWER BMX Signs Tory Nyhaug and Re-Introduces the ANSWER BMX Factory Team

ANSWER BMX Products is excited to announce the return of the ANSWER BMX Factory Team highlighted by the signing of Canadian Olympic athlete and World #2 Tory Nyhaug to a multi-year deal. 

BMX historians will remember the ANSWER Factory teams of years past that included rosters of some of racing’s most accomplished amateur, pro, and Olympic racers in history. 

While the purpose of those teams in the past was the pursuit of team trophy titles and team sheets, the newly formed team’s focus is purely on promotion, creating strong brand image, and exposure in a global market.

ANSWER BMX President John Sawyer stated, “I know the history of the Factory Answer teams of the past and the positive image it created for the brand.  While we are fortunate to be currently partnered with the high profile Factory Team’s of George Costa’s ANSWER RENNEN Factory Team and Jim Buchanan’s Ssquared ANSWER Factory Team, we felt it was important to have our own smaller team for promotional purposes with some international flavor.  And having a high profile Elite like Tory Nyhaug as our flagship leader is a no brainer obviously.” 

"Tory, who is just returning to form after a late season injury in 2014 and release from his former sponsor, had this to say about joining his new team, “I’m psyched to be partnering with ANSWER BMX heading into the Olympics.  I’ve used Answer parts since I was a little kid and am excited to ride the 2x Bike of the Year.  I know Birk and everybody at Answer and Ssquared will give me the support I need to be successful.”

The 2015 ANSWER BMX Factory Team Roster consists of:

Tory Nyhaug, Canada, Elite Men

Alfredo Campo, Ecuador, Elite Men

Cole Proctor, USA

Sebastian Velasquez, Columbia

Valentina Velasquez, Columbia

Ronalds Ritins, Latvia

Larry Dardini, USA

Mazin Shehayeb, USA

DJ Foster, USA

Jackson Gentry, USA

Evan Putnam, USA

Rusty Dial, USA

Darin Houston, USA 

The ANSWER BMX Factory will proudly represent Ssquared Bicycles, ANSR race wear, Rennen Designs, Tioga Tires, MJT, and CRIT as team co-sponsors for the 2015 season.

PUMPTrax USA builds New Community Pump Track in Brookings, South Dakota

From KELO News / BROOKINGS, SD - Brookings will soon be home to a brand new Pump Park, built by PumpTrax USA of Columbus, Ohio. The three dirt tracks for bicycles are part of the Dakota Nature Park in the south part of town. It's not a dirt cheap form of recreation but this $20,000 dirt track facility will be a welcomed addition to the Brookings bike trail. Brookings Parks and Recreation Director Pete Colson says it's taking 100 truck loads of dirt to get the job done.

"It's a park similar to our skate park or even a sledding hill. People are going to travel just to do a particular activity. It's something very, very different and something you don't find a lot of in this part of the country," Colson said.

PumpTrax USA out of Ohio is building three courses for riders at all different levels. Once the crew is finished in Brookings, they will head to Rio De Janeiro to build the BMX track for the Olympics.

"The goal in building the Pump Park here in Brookings is to take someone that has never done this sort of riding before and then incrementally work their way up to a more advanced level," Lead Builder, Alex Fowler said.

From Strider bikes to BMX, pedals aren't necessary here. The tracks are designed to use your body weight and wheels to get you around.

Colson hopes the Pump Park will become a destination in the region.

"I hope everybody comes out and eventually enjoys the park and the nature park as well. It's kind of a place that we're really proud of and we hope it attracts as many citizens as it does visitors," Colson said.

The Pump Park will be ready in about three weeks.

Caroline Buchanan Battles To Hold On To UCI SX Series Lead!

Caroline Buchanan battled to hold on to the series leader red plate at stop 2 of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series in Holland.

Buchanan continued her lead in the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series despite battling it out all weekend in the middle of the pack. The heavy travel and race schedule over the past 25 days saw Caroline compete at 2 World Cups, The Oceania Championships & National Championships, across 3 countries, 4 time zones & 6 days straight of travel time. The fatigue caught up with Caroline by this final leg of 4 weeks on the road and saw her bar to bar fighting for a spot in the final.

The European weather put on a show with amazing sunny summer conditions for the finals as the riders battled not only for World Cup series points, but all important Olympic qualification points as well.

In the elite women’s final the current world champion and Olympic gold medallist, Mariana Pajon (COL) won with a solid lead ahead of Felicia Stencil (USA) and Stefany Hernandez (VEN). Caroline crossed the line in 4th position.

“Riding against the best girls in the world doesn't get any easier. With Olympics closing in less than 550 days away, all the countries are stepping up their game."

"I am not a racer that is used to battling it out in the pack but this weekend taught me how quickly fatigue can catch up with you and a really good lesson about riding through the hard days, persavering and holding onto as many crutial points as possible."

“The amazing support from the BMX High Performance Unit, my coach Wade Bootes and boyfriend @barrryNobles95 has me in positive spirits looking forward to the upcoming World Championships."

On to the next :)

Yep, it's THAT time of year! Time for the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup CLASSIC.....the big race at the Dutch Olympic Training Center in Papendal, Netherlands!

This is a race that the fastest of the fast ALWAYS make, and this year the Olympic Points intensity is beginning to crank up so you'll see intense BMX racing action and big drama in Holland!

Of course, BMX Mania will be there. We're in the air currently and will be on the ground, ready for Friday's Elite Men's and Women's practice sessions. We'll be bringing you some race coverage and HUNDREDS of awesome BMX racing photos of your country's best and your favorite riders!

Tune in late Friday evening for Friday Practice Pix and over the weekend for more from Papendal. THE place to race this weekend for International Elite BMX Racing Action!!!!!

Caroline Buchanan has won her 15th Australian BMX National Championship title over the weekend at the Sleeman Sports Centre in Brisbane.

Buchanan holds onto the Australian National Championship flag sleeve for another year, despite the south east Queensland flooding and storms that swept through the event over 3,000 racers, the BMX families and volunteers pulled together with a smile and the show went on.

In a competitive Elite Women’s final, it was Buchanan who grabbed the hole shot and got to an early lead. Western Australia’s Lauren Reynolds who wrapped up the Australian National Series win for 2015 attempted a powerful passing move in the first corner but wasn’t able to stick it and slid out.

“It’s a huge honour to wear the Australian sleeve around the world and ride for the nation with pride so I wanted to win that back and hold onto the national title.

“I knew today I was going to have to ride a smart lap. These turns were so unpredictable and slippery and I’ve known from my mountain biking to lower the centre of gravity and not panic on the exit.”

Racing at dusk on an extended day of competition following an extreme weather event affecting south east Queensland had forced the postponement of several events, Caroline Buchanan won the Elite Women's national title and and Corey Frieswyk the Elite Men's winner mastered the tricky and greasy track best.

Next Stop for Caroline and the High Performance BMX team is the 2nd UCI BMX Supercross World Cup round in Holland this coming weekend.

EliteTrax is pleased to announce their partnership with elite rider extraordinaire #95 Barry Nobles (USA).

Barry Nobles has been a long-time Supercross rider and in known for pushing the limits on a bike.

EliteTrax will support Barry’s efforts to compete at major international UCI events, while Barry also will take the role as official test rider for EliteTrax major builds.


“Riders often gets confused when they are asked to test a track or an obstacle. More often they judge the obstacle or design based on their own ability or gain.

Barry on the other hand, gives an opinion that gains everybody, not just himself, says EliteTrax Master Builder, Tom Ritzenthaler.

“Of course, with Barry not hesitating of hitting a new big jump, makes him the best test rider out there” continues Tom.


“EliteTrax has pushed the envelope of BMX, creating the BMX Supercross format and making us go faster and bigger.

I, among many others pro riders, have certainly taken Supercross to our liking” says Barry Nobles.


“I want to contribute to build even better tracks in the future and I’m confident my experience can give EliteTrax valuable feedback to produce new interesting obstacles and track designs” continues Barry.


It doesn’t matter if you are looking for rebuilding your local BMX track, or wishing to construct an Olympic size training facility, we got you covered.

No job is too small or too big for EliteTrax. We can design and build a BMX track that meets your needs.

Texas Bicycle Motocross Hall of Fame Announces 2015 Nominees
Mark Summers, President – Texas Bicycle Motocross Hall of Fame - On behalf of the Board of Directors of Texas Bicycle Motocross Hall of Fame, I am pleased to announce the nominees for the 2015 “Ryan Sheehan Spirit Award”.
West Texas BMX: David “Doc” Gray
Metroplex BMX: Jonathan Irvin
Pearland BMX: Chuck Martini
Katy BMX: Chris Rickard
Cowtown BMX: Craig Chandler
Tornado Alley BMX: Neil Ford
Central Texas BMX: Alfred “Big Al” Freeman

This award will be given to one person each year that exemplifies the sportsmanship and commitment to the sport of BMX that the late Ryan Sheehan showed during his BMX career.

Ryan possessed an intense love of the BMX sport that showed in every way. During his career, which started in 1983, he was always the first person at the track and the last to leave. He would help beginners with gate starts and give advice, or would hang out with the superstars and international riders. He would lend you his bike or pick you up off the track when you fell.

He loved every aspect of BMX racing. BMX Spirit is never about the biggest trophy or the most points or what number is on your plate. It is being a part of a BMX family of racers and lasting friendships.

His years of BMX were his happiest and for that our BMX family will be forever grateful. Each BMX track in Texas is allowed to nominate one person each year for this award.

The nominee can be a rider, sibling, parent, or other supporter from the local track. They can be currently involved or someone you want to recognize from the past. The methodology of how the nominee is chosen is left up to each track operator.

Each nominee will be presented with a Texas BMX Hall of Fame jersey, and will be recognized at our induction ceremony in Desoto at the Texas State Championships in August.

Natarsha Williams Birk Joins Marian University Cycling Coaching Staff

Former world champion cyclist will coach the university’s BMX program INDIANAPOLIS – Marian University Cycling Coach, Dean Peterson announced today that Natarsha Birk will be joining the coaching staff of the 28-time National Champion collegiate cycling program at Marian University. Birk will coach all disciplines with a specific focus on the university’s BMX and mountain bike programs.

Birk comes to the two-time defending Collegiate BMX National Champions with vast BMX racing success, including two World Championships (1996 and 2000), three World Cup Championships, two European Championships, and a National Championship from her home nation of Australia.

Originally from Innisfail, Queensland, Birk has been racing bikes since age 5. She turned professional in the sport of BMX at 16 and raced internationally, in 17 countries, until 2004. She moved to the United States in 2000 and has remained involved in the BMX industry.

She comes to Marian University Cycling from ANSWER BMX, where she has served as the Sales and Sponsorship Manager since 2009. “BMX has been my life – so to be able to do something in a career that I’m passionate about, makes me happy,” said Birk. “When you have a passion, it’s easy to pass it along, and this will allow me to actually help athletes along, be hands-on, and make themselves better.”

Birk is an accredited level 1 coach and will bring those skills, along with her strength in sports psychology, to help the Knights continue to advance their program, particularly in the off-road disciplines. “We continue to look for ways to develop in the BMX and mountain bike disciplines, as those are the youngest areas in our program’s history,” explained Peterson. “Natarsha is going to be a huge part of our staff moving forward – I am confident she will help us grow our efforts to create a meaningful experience for our student-athletes, both on and off their bikes.”

The Cycling Knights won the Collegiate BMX National Championship in 2013 on their way to the team’s first omnium championship. They repeated in 2014 and head to Atlanta, Georgia this weekend to defend that title. BMX became an Olympic sport in 2008.

Birk lives in Westfield with her husband, Ryan, and their son, Ryder, 7, who also races BMX. She is 39 years old.

BMX Racing News - Weekend Update - April 18-19, 2015




Big News from GSX Events: The 2015 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup kick started with the opening round of the season at the home of British Cycling in Manchester, United Kingdom. With focus on qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics in was a full house of over 200 riders ready to get the season underway.

Liam Phillips, GBR, undefeated at his home track over the past 2 seasons got the proceedings started with a win in the Time Trial Super Final over second placed Connor Fields, USA and 3rd placed Twan van Gendt, NED. 2014 UCI BMX World Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist, Mariana Pajon, COL, kept it smooth and fast in the women's Time Trial to edge out Caroline Buchanan, AUS, 2nd and Felicia Stancil, USA in 3rd place.

"King" Liam Phillips (GBR) surrounded by a crowd of photographers, chronicling his BIG win at the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Manchester, GBR.

The main event of the weekend brought the house to their feet in Manchester, in what can only be described as a showcase event for Bicycle Motorcross, (BMX). WIth action from the start to the finish the crowd was on the edge of their seats as the riders put on a display of speed, energy, power and grace as they battled like warriors in a gladiator arena.

The Elite Women's Final saw 2014 BMX Supercross World Cup Series Winner , Caroline Buchanan, AUS, come out of lane 5, like a scolded cat, taking the hole shot. Mariana Pajon, COL, unclipped off the first jump and lost her momentum while Alice Post, USA tucked in behind Buchanan out of the first turn and that's where she stayed for the rest of the race as Buchanan took charge. Stefany Hernandez, VEN, finished strong in 3rd place.

Caroline Buchanan (AUS) leads the pack in the Elite Women's Main Event at the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Manchester, GBR.

The Elite Men's Final was a start studded cast with Liam Phillips, GBR, getting first gate choice and taking the all important inside lane. The EliteTrax Double Dice incentive for racing out of gate 8 for the win with the opportunity of doubling your prize money went to the young Frenchman, Amidou Mir. Out of the gate Liam Phillips was pure class, with fellow countryman Tre Whyte, GBR, having a great first straight. Joris Daudet, FRA, did not get the start he wanted, while Twan van Gendt, NED, went down in the first straight.

Whyte went down in the 2nd turn and soon after him, 2nd placed Willoughby went over the front of his bars with a speed wobble as he entered the tricky 3rd rhythm section. Mir, found a second gear and went past Nick Long in 2nd and that's the way it stayed to the finish line with Liam Phillips, large and in charge and way ahead as he crossed the finish line for a hatrick of wins, undefeated on the Manchester track for the 3rd year in a row as the arena erupted with applause at another victory for the King of the track in Manchester.

The UCI BMX Supercross World Cup rocks on to Round Two in Papendal, Netherlands the weekend of May 9-10.

UCI BMX Supercross World Cup and EliteTrax introduce the Lane 8 Double Dice

Double prize money for finalists who pick the outside lane and win the race!

(Manchester, Great Britain, 10 April 2015). Instant excitement has been added to the 2015 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup with the introduction of the Lane 8 Double Dice presented by EliteTrax. Riders in the finals in both the Elite Men and Elite Women classes who pick the outside lane (Lane 8) and proceed to win the race, will receive double the prize money when they cross the finish line.

Normally, the outside lane is not considered the most favorable starting position in race. The fact that you cannot protect and control the race in the first turn in the same way as being on in the inside is something riders consider when they pick a gate position. Riders can make their own gate pick in the finals based on their semifinal result. The fastest rider in the semifinal heat gets ‘first pick’ on the 8-position starting gate.

The inside gates have always been favorite until the EliteTrax Lane 8 Double Dice showed up. The first rider who picks the empty Lane 8 position on the gate is shooting for double prize money that day.

To make it even more interesting, if the same rider in Elite Men and Elite Women manages to win from Lane 8 three times in one season (The Triple Crown), a prize of US$25.000 will be paid out.

Winning from Lane 8 is certainly not an easy one, but not impossible as history has proven. In 2012 at the Papendal BMX Supercross event Maris Strombergs won the last race before the Olympics from lane 8.

Arielle Martin did the same at the UCI BMX SX in Chula Vista in 2011 in the Elite Women class. Shanaze Reade had a terrible semi final on the demanding SX track in London in 2011 and ended up having to choose Lane 8. She got the holeshot in the final and never looked back in front of an ecstatic home crowd.

Perhaps the most famous win from the outside was the 2010 UCI BMX World Championships Elite Men finals where Maris Strombergs took the rainbow jersey title starting from lane 8.

This EliteTrax Lane 8 Double Dice prize money option is completely voluntarily, since the riders choose their own gate position (based on the time in the previous (semi-final) heat). In this way, no one will be forced to take the Lane 8 option. It is there if a rider feels that he has what it takes!

The EliteTrax Lane 8 Double Dice will be introduced at the first round of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Manchester, England. When the Elite Men and Elite Women line up for the final race of the day, all eyes will be on Lane 8.

EliteTrax Inc. is the leading BMX track builder in the world and has been instrumental in developing modern BMX tracks and its design. EliteTrax is a proud partner of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup.

PumpTrax To Build World Class Pump Track Layout In South Dakota!
Ritz, Johan and the boys over at GSX have been busy BMXers and here's something VERY cool that they have going on in Brookings, South Dakota.

The Brookings Park and Recreation department has recently applied for 'Bicycle Friendly Status' for the community and they have also contracted with PumpTRAX to apply their BMX track building genius to some of the park's land and the results are going to be stunning! The community is excited and it shows in this bit of promo from KELO-TV.

From KELO-TV/Sioux Falls, SD USA.  BROOKINGS, SD - The same company that designs BMX bike tracks for the Olympics is coming to South Dakota to create Brookings' newest park. Each track at the Southbrook Pump Park is designed for bikers of different levels. There is even a strider track for children between the ages of 2 and 5.

Crews will arrive in May. It should take about 10 days to build the clay tracks on the southern edge of town. The park should be ready for bikers by June.

If you are not familiar with a Pump Park, the name comes from the fact that you don't need to use your pedals at all. You should be able to make it all the way around the tracks using just your body weight and your wheels.

Southbrook Park will be just north of the Dakota Nature Park.

C-YAA scores second Factory Team win of the 2015 season!

For the first time in what is sure to be a storied history, USA BMX scheduled a national event at the new Rock Hill, SC facility. Rock Hill is a dual SX downhill, and traditional BMX tournament course in one, with state of the art spectator support facilities surrounding the track.

C-YAA Factory rolled into town with a strong squad ready to take on all challengers, and most of all, we were very happy to be out of the snowy Northeast for the long weekend to be honest.

On the big hill C-YAA's dynamic pro duo of Austin Loebe and Cole Tesar lined up in the SX classes Friday and Saturday, easily spotted in their Fly Racing pants helmets and gloves. While neither made the main events they sure did make us all proud, with strong performances.

Amateur wise we fared well with eleven total main event wins, and the top slot in Day one's Factory Team competition. Lead by CJ Fisher (19-27x & Cru), who continues to train with Diprete Strength (and it shows), and Evan Sinchak (14x & Cru), who each picked up three main event wins. Not to be outdone our wily veteran, Lance McGuire (28-35x) scored two wins on Sunday, and Wesley Haggstrom (9X & Cru) kept his bikes clean and fast with Finishline Lubes and scored the day one 9x win.

Rock Hill saw the return of Kayla Gaddis, now Kayla Shane, to the tournament course. Saturday was a "get to know your Thomson and ODI equipped bike again" day for Kayla, while Sunday saw the former professional use some of her veteran skills to pick up her first win of the season and helping the team to another score north of two hundred and an impressive fourth place finish.

Jason Baird made his 2015 season debut and captured the day two 16 cruiser main event using KMC chains. Teammate Coleman Habib (16x) stayed fueled with PowerBar products and made three of four expert/open main events. Donathan Williams took time away from fixing his vehicle to compete in the 31-35 cruiser class, scoring a pair of deuces. Mason Hayes (6x) continues to progress making all four of his expert and open main events, while Mason Bruns (8x & Cru) also impressed and progressed lining up for three of four mains using his Stealth hubs. Alex Poole (14x) came up short, but has begun the training process needed to continue his work towards being a factor nationally.

On the injury front Charlie Biggs (11x & Cru) and Jonathan Austin (9x & Cru) were both missing from Sunday's race. Not to fear though fans, nothing too serious with either rider, and both should be back on the track soon.

As most of you saw with our display set up on your way to view the first straight action, our 2015 Cruiser and smaller sized twenty inch frame line is just about ready for sale! Special thanks to Jerry Bradford and YESS for the premium race site landscape.

Next up for the team will be USA BMX national in Atlanta, GA.

Chase BMX's, Joris Daudet wins the Men's Elite Class both days at USABMX Desoto!
Chase BMX - Race Report - Super Nationals - Desoto, TX ..... Joris Daudet wins the Men's Elite Class both days!

Round #3 of the USA BMX Pro Series took to the perfectly manicured Desoto, TX BMX track this past weekend. This work of art BMX track and facility always hosts a great round of National caliber racing. The covered Desoto arena gives the riders the piece of mind about the weather conditions, which can take a turn in a matter of seconds deep in the heart of Texas.

Joris Daudet has had some great performances in his past few USA BMX Events with placing 2nd at last weekends USA BMX North American Supercross event. Joris was looking to continue his podium appearances at the end of the race day and on Friday night, he did just that. With a stacked Pro class, Joris took the lead from the gate drop, taking the hole shot award and the lead, all the way to the line for his first USA BMX Pro Series National Main event win of the year! Tailgating Joris in 3rd was DHR/Chase Pro Anthony Dean.

On Day 2, it was once again a day dominated by the Chase sponsored riders. Joris again rode strong and smooth all the way to once again take hole shot award and the impressive win in the Elite Mens Class. DHR Pro Anthony Dean stepped it from Day 1, with a ultra impressive lap in the main event, just finishing behind Joris, in the 2nd overall spot for the day.

The Dale Holmes Racing Pro Team was on fire in Desoto as well, with Dani George winning the Elite Women’s Class on Day 1 and in Elite Men, it was Anthony Dean finishing in 3rd on Day 1 and 2nd on Day 2. With Desoto in the rear view mirror, it is now time to prepare for the 2015 UCI World Cup tour, that kicks off in just a few weeks in the UK.

Joris, Connor and the DHR Pros will head to Europe to get ready for the start of 2015 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup tour in Manchester. Connor will be racing next weekend in Zolder, Belgium at the BMX European Cup.

BMX Racing News - weekend update - March 27-29, 2015

Round #2 of the USA BMX Pro National tour was a premier stop for the series, as it was the inaugural USA BMX North American Supercross tour stop. For 2015, USA BMX has added in 4 Supercross race track stops, that are intergraded with the traditional races throughout the 2015 USA BMX Pro championship title chase. The USA BMX series headed to Rock Hill in 2014 for the East Coast Gold Cup finals and the riders and fans alike got a taste of one of, if not the best BMX racing facilitie in the USA. With both SX and traditional BMX hills and separate stairways for the the pro riders, this is the future of BMX and will be another great training facility located in the USA. This would be a huge weekend for the riders, as 3 separate events would keep the USA riders busy. Here is how the weekend went for the Chase BMX Pro team riders:

The weekend had a slightly different format this weekend, with the USA National Championship kicking things off on Friday night. The best of the USA Elite BMX pro riders would all battle it out for the USA Cycling National Championship. Connor, the 2014 USAC National Champion was looking to retain his title and rode well throughout the day, winning each and every event right up to the main event. When the gate dropped for the final, as we all know, its about perfect timing if you want to beat the best in BMX. Connor was just a tad bit early, hit the gate and it looked like he would be in the back of the entire lap. But Connor is one of the most determined riders in BMX that you will ever meet and even though he was in 8th place down the first straightaway, he fought his way back to the front of the pack by the finish and would come in 3rd for the day, with a great comeback performance. Its not the finish that Connor wanted, but its the will and desire that we all want to see from a top Pro, showing that never give up attitude, and it was excellent to see that from Connor!

Day 2 was the USA BMX Supercross event. This was opened up to the all Elite riders. What rider would not want to be lined up on the gate for the $20,000 Elite mens pro purse that would be distributed throughout the riders in the main event. Joris would now join Connor on track, and was looking his usual ultra smooth self around the Rock Hill SX track. Connor was once again on top form and both Chase BMX riders made their way through the qualifiers and into the ultra stacked main event. With both Joris and Connor in the main event, the Chase fans were excited and the boys did not disappoint. As the gate dropped, it was Sam Willoughby with the hole shot, but Joris and Connor were right on his rear Tioga Powerblock. Joris was close, unable to pass Sam, but still impressed the fans with a 2nd place finish and Connor did as well with a 3rd place finish. Another great result for both the Chase Pros, with both riders on the Podium. Its early on in the season, but Connor holds the points lead in the overall USA BMX Pro title chase.

Day 3 was the North American Continental Championships and Connor was the lone Chase rider that was able to compete. With bad weather on the way USA BMX compressed the racing for the Pros, letting the Elites have the best track conditions as possible. This was a great move, as when the main event for the Elites was lined up on the gate, the weather was still perfect and would not be a factor in the outcome. The major force though for the main event, was hurricane Fields, as he blasted the gate start, and took to the front of the pack. Justin Posey put in a bid in for a great race battle, but Connor pull ahead of him, cleared him, and then was out front and untouchable for the remainder of the lap. Connor capped of this great weekend with the North American Continental Championship title and the win.

The riders now get ready to kick off a bit more racing, as next weekend Joris will head over to Texas for the next round of the USA BMX Pro series tour, while Connor will head to Europe to race at the sight of the 2015 World Championships race, just before the opening round of the 2015 UCI BMX World Cup tour in Manchester in just 3 weeks.

Thanks to all of the great sponsors of the Chase Bicycles Pro team : Shimano, Tioga BMX, Fly Racing, Kicker Audio, ODI Grips, G-Form Protection, KMC Chains, Vans, Stealth Hubs, Elevn, Excess, Insight, Kingstar, and Thomson.

CAROLINE Buchanan Brings Balance Bikes to Oz

London BMX Olympian, Caroline Buchanan is hopeful of a berth at the next Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro but right now her focus is on developing Olympians of the future.

This weekend Buchanan will reveal her new Signature Balance Bike which has just hit the shores. The fluorescent coloured miniature bikes are aimed at getting youngsters between 2 – 5 years old riding. The new DK Balance Bikes will be on show and ready for action at the ACT BMX State Championships in Tuggeranong.

The balance bike is small. It has a seat but no cranks which allows children to bypass training wheels. They sit on the seat and push or they can put their feet on the rear chain stays and learn to stand up. It is an ideal starting bike giving young riders a chance to learn to balance and control a bike.

“This is where the real grassroots of all cycling and motor sports really begins,” explained Buchanan. “It gets children active earlier which has health benefits but also it gets them learning to balance on a bike.”

Despite using training wheels herself and getting into BMX when she was 5 years old, Buchanan believes this push to get even younger riders on bikes could pay off at Olympic level.

The global scene has also changed with World Championships for this age group on similar bikes being held in Sarasota, USA this year. Japan has one of the largest groups of youngsters competing on balance bikes. The Australian BMX national body has introduced a mini-wheeler category to many of its race programmes.

With the introduction of balance bikes the cycling industry is heading into an exciting era. The total cost of Buchanan’s new Signature Balance bike will be $ 159. Helmets are also required.

“I can’t wait to show the rest of Australia what these little ones can do. They are just so excited to be on a track,” said Buchanan.

“This could be the start of something amazing. Kids will remember their first ride, their first race and later their first jump and even their first podium. It all starts on a balance bike.”
