|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
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.

|JORIS DAUDET AND CONNOR Fields BOTH ON THE PODIUM AT ROCK HILL, SC.|
|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.

|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.”

|2015 USA BMX Pro Series Season Opener And Connor Fields kicks off the season with a win!|
|Phoenix, Arizona is one of the premiere USA BMX
tracks on the race schedule and it was a fitting
location for the first stop of the 2015 USA BMX Pro
Series tour. What more can you ask for in a BMX weekend:
A beautifully groomed outdoor track, picture perfect
weather, and a great crowd of some of the best BMX fans
on hand to watch the best Pros race head to head, is an
excellent way to start off the season.
Chase BMX Factory Pro team riders Connor Fields and Joris Daudet were looking forward to the season opener, after their great performance at last season USA BMX Grand Nationals.
Both riders have had a great off season training program and were ready for the season opener. 53 Elite men were signed up to race the new USA BMX race format, with the 1st National event for the Pros on Friday night and the 2nd on Saturday. With Pro racing under the lights, it was time for the season to kick off and kick it up a notch.
Here is how Connor and Joris finished up:
|Connor Fields has had a strong off season training
regimen and Phoenix was a direct result of his continued
effort of striving for excellence on the BMX track.
On Friday, Connor rode perfect on the track, with taking wins in each and every one of the laps he did, all the way up to the main event. When the gate dropped for the main, Connor carried on with his winning ways, took the lead and never looked back, taking the first main event win of 2015 on the USA BMX tour.
On Saturday, Connor once again rode strong all day, but a bump down the first straight-away in the main event would keep him from being on the podium in day 2, where he would finish up 7th overall.
What a great way to kick off the 2015 USA BMX season and Connor will now put his focus to retaining his USA Cycling Elite National Championship, as that is the next event up for the Pro riders, along with the Rock Hill National at the end of March.
Joris Daudet was riding well all day on Friday, but was just edged out of the main event on the night program.
On Saturday, he was not to be denied, as he once again rode smart and strong throughout the day and made his way into the main event.
Joris and Connor were next to each other on the gate, and as fate would have it, they were forced into each other, by another rider, and it took the chance of a 1-2 Chase BMX finish away.
Joris would salvage a 5th for the night, but cap off a good weekend of racing in the main event.
The riders now have a few weeks off before the 2nd stop of the USA BMX Pro Series, as well as the USA Cycling National Championship race on the Supercross track at the great Rock Hill BMX Facility in South Carolina on March 20-22. For more info on the event, visit the USA BMX website.

|USA Cycling announces changes to 2015 BMX Devo Program, rider qualifications|
(Jan. 21, 2015) – USA Cycling announced Wednesday various changes to the 2015 BMX Development (Devo) Program, including rider camp qualifications.
Devo - There will be no more “Junior Devo” races at USA BMX Nationals; instead, riders will now qualify through their regular 15 and 16-year-old expert and girls’ classes on Saturday and Sunday events only. Each of the four camps will have a qualifying window of USA BMX races. To see which races qualify for which camps go to http://www.usacycling.org/usa-cycling-bmx-development-series.htm.
USA Cycling will invite the top three boys from each of the 15 expert and 16 expert classes (six total) and top two girls from the 15-16 girls class. Points will be calculated by USA BMX using the standard national points system listed in the 2015 rule book, including groups for rider count. A rider’s best four scores in the series count toward camp qualification. Once USA Cycling has received the official points from USA BMX, invites to the camp will be sent out as soon as possible. Invites are sent via email, so it is important that each rider maintains a current email address/account with USA Cycling.
New for 2015 is the opportunity for age eligible riders (1999-2000) to submit video and race resumes to email@example.com to be selected for discretionary spots. All remaining Devo camp spots will be filled through talent identification by USA Cycling coaches.
Devo+ - Devo+ will continue to provide opportunities at camps for boys and girls that have either aged out of Devo or have shown exemplary performance markers at prior camps and are trending towards Evo caliber. Camp invites for Devo + will be at the sole discretion of USA Cycling coaches.
Evo - Also new for 2015 are designated spots at camps for Evolution (Evo) caliber riders. USA Cycling wants to provide as many opportunities as possible to help facilitate the transition from Devo+ athlete to Elite athlete, thus these spots are reserved for the top tier of our development talent.
The Evo spots at camps are designed to provide more time and coaching on SX tracks to keep developing riders engaged and working toward becoming a high performance Elite racer. This model also allows for Devo and Devo+ riders to train and race alongside Evo riders that have previously been through the same program and who can also serve as role models to the younger riders. Camp invites for Evo will be at the sole discretion of USA Cycling coaches.
2015 Camp Dates ..... April 26-May 3 ..... June 7-15 ..... August 16-23 ..... October 18-25

|sUPERCROSS BMX ANNOUNCES 2015 Factory TEAM PRO RIDERS|
Supercross BMX is happy to announce the addition of 2 Pros to our 2015 roster. They are none other than our own former amateur riders and Supercross family members, Kalvin Davis and Rachel Mydock.
After their outstanding performances at the 2014 USA BMX Grand Nationals, they both have decided to take on a new challenge in their own racing careers and we are more than happy to support them!
Team manager Kim Hayashi stated, “I couldn’t be more excited and proud to watch two of my former teammates make the jump to pro. I’ve had the privilege to watch them grow as athletes over the past few years and both Rachel and Kalvin are excellent riders as well as being amazing role models. I have no doubt that they will be making big waves in the pro class so keep your eye out on these two! Congratulations to our newest Elite Women, Rachel Mydock and our new A-pro, Kalvin Davis!”
Supercross BMX, Owner, Bill Ryan was overly excited to hear the news about Rachel and had this to say, “Rachel has been on a tear in the 17/20 girls class this year, and after picking up the NAG 1 spot for 2014, I am glad she decided to take the opportunity to fill the Women's Elite spot we had been saving for her. It is going to be a great to watch her start the new chapter of her career.”
After making the announcement Rachel was asked about her jump to pro, "2015 is going to be a new chapter for me but I couldn't be more excited! Racing against some of the fastest girls in the world is going to be challenging but I can't wait to line up with them at the Winter Nationals in February. I couldn't be happier with the support I have around me and I believe I have all the tools necessary to battle with the best in the world!"
When asked about Kalvin’s decision to pro owner Bill Ryan said, “Kalvin has had a plan, we spoke about it years ago that when he graduated college, he would turn pro. Well with him graduating last May, we knew that after Grands he was going to be ready to go A Pro and fill the A Pro spot that Jeremy left open after turning up to Elite. Kalvin has been a part of the Supercross Family for many years starting out on the 505 Racing / Supercross Team and then jumping into the Factory Supercross colors. We are super excited to see the Mighty Duck take the A Pro class by storm!!!"
Kalvin was so excited about his move to pro he had this to say, “I just love BMX, I love riding my bike. I am turning pro this year in search of that next level of fun on my bike. After racing for years as a top amateur and recently as UCI World Cup challenge rider, stepping up to the pro circuit is the next step. I can't wait to get up there and get nervous behind the gate in Vegas! See you there. And make sure to follow my adventures this year on Instagram.”
Make sure to follow Rachel (@rachelmydock) and Kalvin (@kalvin_withak) on Instagram to track their progress in their first season on the USA BMX pro circuit.
