Chase BMX Race Report – Bordeaux France, French National Championships
And South Park, USA BMX Pro Series
Joris Daudet wins the French National Championships, Time Trial and Elite Men's Race
Connor Fields wins at the USA BMX Pro Series National in South Park, PA USA

On Friday, the riders would take to the track for the National Championships for Time Trial. Joris rode a flawless lap and would take the overall win and National Championship title, with Romain Mahieu finishing just behind his time, in 3rd for the day.

On Saturday, it was race day for Romain and Joris. Both would transfer their way into the main event. When the gate dropped, Joris would take the lead and have an epic battle with Sylvain Andre, but Joris was just riding perfect and once again took the victory and the French National Championship! Romain would finish up 7th for the day, but once again, rode impressive all weekend long.

Joris will wear the National Championship sleeve on his Chase race jerseys once again, but hopes to hold on the the World Championship jerseys. We will see how that plays out later this month at the UCI BMX World Championships in Rock Hill, SC in the USA!

 

Connor Fields wins at the USA BMX National in South Park, PA.

When it was time to race, Connor was on point and took the hole shot and lead the entire lap around the South Park track, taking the overall win.

After a brief break, the riders would start to race their way into the Day 2 program and into the main events once again. This time, Connor would have an all out battle with Corben Sharrah, with Corben edging Connor out for the main event.

Wrapping up an excellent weekend of racing with a 1st and 2nd, Connor sits 2nd overall in the USA BMX overall points, but more importantly, has the momentum and confidence of 2 great results, heading into the UCI BMX World Championships in 2 weeks time.

BIG AND BOLD: LYNCH AND SE BIKES PARTNER ON BEAST MODE® RIPPER

NFL star Marshawn Lynch unveils his big BMX bike from SE

Oakland, CA — Expect nothing less than a beast of a bike when NFL champion Marshawn Lynch joins forces with the legendary SE Bikes brand to design an all-new BMX bicycle.

The Beast Mode Ripper is built upon powerfully large 27.5-inch x 3-inch Beast Mode Vee tires, with an alloy frame that takes design cues from SE’s legendary PK Ripper with floval tubing and a looptail rear end.

Long before Lynch became a football star he loved riding BMX bikes around his hometown of Oakland, California. During his short retirement from the NFL, Lynch rekindled his passion for BMX, and was attracted to SE Bikes due to the brand’s uniquely large BMX bikes with 26-inch and 29-inch wheels. "As a little ass kid, I always put together bikes, while I was doing it, all I could think of is... I wanted to have my own bike and NOW I GOT MY OWN BIKE,” said Lynch.

Once Todd Lyons, brand manager of SE Bikes, caught wind of Lynch riding around Oakland on an SE, he reached out to see if the NFL star, famed for his punishing running style, was interested in a collaboration project. After the two put their heads together they decided to create the world’s first BMX bike built around 27.5-inch wheels: The Beast Mode Ripper.

For his part, Lyons said he knew any collaboration with Lynch had to be big and bold. Along with the wheel sizing and iconic frame design, the Beast Mode Ripper features classic gold-on-black details and the famous “BEAST MODE” tagline emblazoned on the frame and sidewalls of the plus-sized tires.

“When I first started talking with Marshawn about designing a bike, I knew we had to make it like no other bike on the market,” Lyons said. “We started from scratch with the design and came up with the world’s first BMX bike built with 27.5-inch wheels. And it rides amazing.”

The Beast Mode Ripper was recently unveiled by Lynch at the #oaklandrideout, where hundreds of riders — young and old — joined the hometown host to wheelie around Oakland. Needless to say, everyone was blown away by Lynch’s BMX, the Beast Mode Ripper.

The Beast Mode Ripper and SE Racing apparel collaboration will be available in July at SE Bikes retailers worldwide, BeastmodeOnline.com, and the Beast Mode stores in Oakland and Seattle, $899 MSRP.

About SE Bikes ..... SE Bikes was founded in 1977 by the Godfather of BMX, Scot Breithaupt. The brand was originally known as SE Racing during BMX’s first boom in the late 1970s and early ‘80s. The brand’s iconic PK Ripper bike was introduced in 1979 and remains the longest continuing production BMX bike in the world. Today, SE Bikes offers a full range of style- and performance-driven BMX and urban bikes in a wide range of wheel sizes for riders of all levels. To learn more about SE Bikes visit: www.sebikes.com.

About Beast Mode® ..... The Beast Mode assortment offers a full range of lifestyle and graphic-inspired apparel including tops, bottoms, hats, socks, underwear, and most recently Chocolate Bars. Beast Mode’s first flagship store, located at 811 Broadway, Oakland CA, opened in February of 2015, and has already become a “must visit” destination for locals and visitors alike. Beast Mode’s most recent flagship store is located in Seattle, WA, at 558 1st Avenue South. To learn more about BEAST MODE, visit: www.beastmodeonline.com.

Chase Pros dominate the weekend, as Joris and Connor trade Pro wins in Atlanta

Chase BMX Race Report - USABMX Dixieland Nationals - Atlanta, Georgia 
 
Round 5 of the 2017 USA BMX Pro Series tour took the riders to the newly built Dixieland BMX track in Atlanta, GA. 
Both Connor and Joris were coming off a great weekend of racing in Austin and looking forward to having another successful weekend in Atlanta, but little did they know how good the event would go for them.

On Friday night, they would line up for the main event and have the crowd amped for the finale. Joris would take the hole shot, with Connor just behind him, and the two would race Tioga tire to tire until Joris was able to slightly gap Connor and ride his way to victory.

On Saturday, it was Joris and Connor who were stand outs in the qualifying racing one again, and as they were on the gate for the main they were ready to battle it out for the last race of the weekend. When the gate slammed down, it was Joris once again with a lead, but Connor was right on his rear wheel the entire lap. Heading into the last turn, Connor turned it up, pulled side by side with Joris and edged him out at the line for the win!

With the Chase Pros sweeping the weekend, its the perfect way for them to be ready to head off to into the UCI World Cup season with wining momentum for the 1st 2 rounds of the 2017 UCI BMX SX race season, with 4 SX events over 2 weekends of racing in Holland and Belgium. Tune into BMXlive.tv to watch all the race action.

Fields and Daudet Dominate at USABMX Lone Star National For Chase Bicycles!

Chase BMX Race Report - USABMX Lone Star Nationals - Pflugerville, Texas

Connor Fields back on top with a win, while Joris Daudet continues his consistent season with two 2nd place finishes.

The USA BMX Pro Series continued this past weekend in Pflugerville, Texas for the Lone Star Nationals. The traditional track is spiced up with a 5 meter starting hill, giving the perfect blend of old school and new for the Pro riders to take to the perfectly groomed Central Texas BMX track.

Both Connor and Joris would be racing the Lone Star Nationals aboard their new Chase ACT 1.0 Carbon frames for the first time, and they seemed to love the feel of the new Chase frames on track!

On day for the for the Elite riders, 27 of the worlds fastest Men lined up on the gate, trying to qualify their way into the main event. Both Joris Daudet and Connor Fields looked fast and made their want into the Main event. Joris has been the most consistent Elite rider this season, while Connor is coking back from his early season set back in Oldsmar, with his crash. When the gate dropped for the finale, they both took to the front of the pack, but neither were able to get ahead of Corben Sharrah before the first turn.

Joris was just behind him, with Connor in tow, and they tried there best to run down Corben. Joris made a last ditch effort at the finish and after the photo of the riders crossing the line was reviewed, Joris would just miss out on the win, with Corben taking the victory, and Connor just behind both in 3rd.

On Day 2, the Chase duo would once again race their way into the Main event. This time, Connor and Joris were the 2 stand outs and battled head to head all the way into turn #1, with Connor edging out Joris. Connor would have clear air in front of him and was able to open up a small lead over Joris and ride to victory, with Mr. Daudet finishing just behind, for 1 - 2 result for the Chase Pro team!

Both riders now will have a few day off before heading to Atlanta for the next round of the USA BMX Nationals and then both will head over to Europe for the opening rounds of the 2017 UCI BMX SX race season, with 4 SX events over 2 weekends of racing.

As always, thanks to our great group of partners and sponsors of the Chase BMX Pro team:
