RaymonvdBiezen.com Race Report UCI BMX SX Chula Vista and National race in Erp

From Dutch SuperPro BMXer, Raymon van der Biezen.....The track at the last UCI BMX SX in Chula Vista scared me and some good racing at the last National race in Erp, the Netherlands…

About 3 weeks ago we had the last UCI BMX Supercross (World Cup) race in Chula Vista, USA. I rode that track 2 years ago during a training camp. Nothing changed, but during practice before this race I got scared. Normally when I ride my bike I decide how to ride every jump on the track… In Chula Vista I couldn’t really control my bike the way I wanted to, because some jumps had a weird kick to them, especially on the third straight!

This time I had to do time-trials because I was ranked top 16. Somehow I pulled off a decent lap and got 10th place in TT. Normally I wouldn’t be satisfied with this result, but considering my fear for this track I was happy.

The next day racing was on. In the 1/8 finales I had some nice battles with my teammate Twan v Gendt and Tre Whyte from Great Britain. My start and first straight felt strong, but I was to thoughtful riding the rest of the track. I made it easily to the quarterfinal. My start was great, unfortunately I came up short at the second jump and lost my top speed. I rode in 6th position and wasn’t able to pass anyone because I was to thoughtful… I can tell you I never raced with this kind of feeling before, but on this level it’s mentally damn hard to do what you have to do when you are scared! Congratulations to the podium finishers.

We flew back home on Monday, had an easy training week and raced the last National race at my home track in Erp. Unfortunately I don’t really ride this track very often, because I’m training at Papendal fulltime. It’s nice technical track and all my teammates and other Dutch riders showed up at the race. We all had some nice battles going on in the heat races and semi final. I felt really tired all day, probably from my jetlag coming back from the U.S. We had a strong final. After a bad start I was back in 8th position, but I made some aggressive moves and got 5th after a close finish with Joris Harmsen who got 4th. I was disappointed, but I did the best I could.

The 2014 season is over. Not the results I was looking for, but I’m happy to end this season without any injuries besides my lower back. The team and I have 3 weeks off before we start preparing ourselves for 2015. I like to make some X-rays or scans to see how my wrist and lower back is doing at this point. From there my doctor, physiotherapist, trainers and I will see what I can do to get ready for next season.

Chase Bicycles Race Report ..... USA BMX Gold Cup EAST/SX event
The Chase Factory Team riders Connor Fields and Joris Daudet, were joined by supported riders Melinda McLeod, Sifiso Nhalpo, Jamie Staff, and Renato Rezende made the trip to Rock Hill, South Carolina for the USA BMX Gold Cup Finals East event, which was a pro series, and the first USA BMX Supercross event.

The Rock Hill facility is state of the art for BMX racing, with both the 8 meter and 5 meter starting hills, and an incredible track built by Elite Trax. The city of Rock Hill had pulled out all the stops to have the premier BMX track in the USA and looking back to all that was built in South Carolina, they have exceeded the expectations of many and have done a great job of bringing the sport of Supercross BMX to the spotlight it so much deserves. If you are anywhere near this facility, we suggest you go and see if for yourself! More info on Rock Hill can be found here.

The only thing the City of Rock Hill could not control was the weather. Friday was just perfect, but as the races kicked off on Saturday the rains were headed in the direction of the track and they would hit, just as the main events were to start. With the Elite riders taking to a 8 meter high starting hill and the large jumps on the track, the Main events for the Elite Men and Women were postponed until Sunday morning, so the conditions would be safer for the riders.

The Elite Men's class was stacked with the start of BMX and Connor Fields had a firm hold in that group of riders. Connor had a great weekend with making the main event both days finishing 3rd on Day #1 and 4th in Day #2. Connor rode consistent and strong and now sits 3rd overall in the USA BMX overall rankings.

Joris Daudet was looking good both days, but he was only able to advance onto the semis both days.

Melinda McLeod stuck around the USA after the UCI BMX World Cup finals to race her first weekend ever of the USA BMX Pro Series tour and with two 3rd place finishes in Rock Hill, she continued on her podium performances she has been solidly putting in this 2014 BMX season.

Jamie Staff was on hand at the Rock Hill facility to not only support the USA Cycling riders and help further promote the USAC Jr Development program, but he also put some time on the track. Jamie was 2nd both days in the Vet Pro class and this now throws him into the overall title hunt for the 2014 season. Not too bad for a part time BMX racer.

The team now has a weekend off before heading to Orlando, Florida for the last weekend of the regular USA BMX Pro series tour, for the Disney Cup. We are excited to be joined by the DHR team in Florida for one of the best weekends of BMX racing all year long!

CGI Selected for 2014 Interbike Award for BMX Innovation of the Year
CGI (Cycle Group Inc.) is proud to announce that it received the 2014 Interbike Award for BMX Innovation of the Year for its BOX Maximus handlebars and Delta stem.

Selected by the editors at BMX Plus! magazine, the bars and stems feature a 31.8 mm clamping diameter. Although the concept of making the bar/stem clamp area larger is not new to cycling, or even to BMX, the Maximus/Delta combination is the first to successfully feature the design in a lightweight butted chromoly bar and lightweight alloy stem.

“It’s a real honor to get the Interbike Award. We believe strongly in the advantages of the Maximus/Delta combo. Every rider who has used it has given us overwhelmingly positive feedback. Many won’t change bar/stem combos if you paid them. And I mean that literally. It is a bonus that the generally skeptical editors at BMX Plus! recognize the bar and stem as beneficial and innovative,” said Michael Gamstetter, CGI’s senior brand manager and senior product designer.

More and more of the world’s top riders are asking to ride BOX Delta stems and Maximus and Maximus Rusty bars. Why? Because they know the 31.8 clamp diameter of the bars and proprietary tapered tubing profile vastly improves stiffness over traditional 22.2 bars. This added stiffness translates into better gate snaps and pull down the first straight and improved confidence while jumping.

Who’s using Delta-Maximus? Marc Willers, Kory Cook, Teagan O’Keefe*, Barry Nobles*, Caroline Buchanan, Tommy Zula, Damien Godet, Twan van Gendt, Jelle van Gorkom, Raymon van der Biezen, Laura Smulders, Merle van Benthem, Roy van den Berg, Martin Jaspers, Niek Kimmann, Shanaze Reade, Matt Pohlkamp, Kurt Pickard, Sarah Walker, Matt Cameron, Trent Jones, Quentin Caleyron, Donny Robinson, Bodie Turner, Rachel Jones, Corey Reid, Ashley Verhagen, Austin Hiatt, Rusty Nesvig, Bryce Hocking*, Walker Finch*, Andrew Townsend*, Kevin Pauls, Kristian Cooper, Lain Van Ogle, Kelsey Van Ogle, Shelby Stacy, Daichi Yamaguchi, Arielle Martin, Tyler Brown, Justin Wike, Dylan Cooley, Mike Weatherford, Manon Valentino, Yoshitaku Nagasako. . .

Maximus bars are available in 5.5, 6.5, 7, 7.5, 8 and 8.5-inch rises with 7 degrees back sweep and 2 degrees up sweep. Maximus Rusty available in 8- and 8.5-inch rises with 3 degrees backs weep and 2 degrees up sweep.

CGI recently began selling two 31.8 stems under the Promax name. The Impact 31.8 is a top load stem available in 48, 53 and 60 lenghts. The Bnager is a front load stem available in 48 and 53 lengths.

*Riders using the new Promax Impact or Banger 31.8 stems instead of the BOX Delta stem.

Kevin MacCuish Appointed as New UCI BMX coordinator
Kevin MacCuish will join the Off-Road section in the Sport and Technical department as the new BMX coordinator, replacing Ellen Bollansée (she will finish her UCI mission on 31st October 2014).

Kevin was formerly an international BMX and Mountain Bike commissaire and commissaire instructor, with experience at Olympics, World Championships and World Cup events.

Also, he formerly organized several events including a UCI BMX Supercross World Cup.

For the last two years he has worked independently as a sport consultant, and before that, he worked in cycling for several provincial federations in Canada, and also as a member of technical commissions for Cycling Canada.

He will be based at the UCI office, and will begin work on Monday, 6 October.



Ellen Bollansee Leaves UCI BMX Coordinator Post

From UCI BMX Coordinator, Ellen Bollansee - I want to thank the whole BMX community for the very constructive and good collaboration in the past years. For three and a half years I have worked with the UCI to improve the sport of BMX.

Driven by the passion for the sport that I've been practicing since my early youth, I am proud to have been a part of leading the sport in the London Olympics, 4 World Championship, numerous world cups and other events. My main focus was to go back to the roots of the sport, create a more professional sport and regain respect for all people working in the sport; riders, coaches, commissaires, staff,… I enjoyed working closely with organizers and staff to improve events. I focused on competition guidelines for the sport and for BMX tracks. This to ensure the development of tracks that meet certified standards around the world. One of the main goals was to make the sport understandable and this was received well by TV Broadcasters. I've seen things evolving in the good direction and have had the chance to help new possible Olympic sports emerging.

During my time at UCI BMX I have met many interesting people and have always worked in very good relations. Taking the decision to quit the UCI was a tough decision, but I've decided to change one passion for another. My path within the sport will continue but with less travelling around the world to be able to spend more time with my family and three young children. I am sure I can continue to pass on my knowledge and experience I had as a rider, coach, organizer and BMX coordinator to many other people.

I would like to thank each and every one to be a part in all of this.

RaymonVdBiezen.com UCI BMX Supercross Argentina and 3-Nations Cup Belgium

Round 4 of the UCI BMX Supercross (World Cup) in Argentina was fun! Some good race action and great atmosphere with all the fans!

Two weeks ago I flew from Amsterdam to Buenos Aires, and from there to Santiago Del Estero for round 4 of the UCI BMX Supercross series. After the first night we switched to a different hotel, because the hotel we booked was pretty nasty and smelled really bad. The other hotel was brand new, but not finished yet. More teams stayed there and the hotel helped us out nicely!


The first few days we we’re all suffering from jetlag, but I felt okay before track practice on Friday. They did a few small changes to the track compared to last year, which was nice in my opinion. Practice felt smooth, but it was really hard to catch the landings of certain jumps, especially the first one coming off the start ramp.

On Saturday I had to race the qualifying heats with a lot of fast riders from South America. I won my first and third heat race. Got 2nd in heat two, so easily qualified for Sunday racing. The top 64 guys split up in 8 groups of 8 racers. My 1/8 finals went pretty good, but I had to race aggressive from the beginning. I won the first race and got 2nd place in the second and third race. During the Quarterfinal I messed up my start, because my reaction was to slow. The other riders closed me in, but I managed to fight back and got 4th by passing 2 guys in the last turn. My semi final was a very strong race and I had the outside start position, which made it even trickier. This time my start was good, but I couldn’t get to the inside enough. I was in 5th place behind my teammate Jelle. He didn’t make any mistakes, so I couldn’t pass him.

To bad I just missed the final by 1 spot, but I’m really happy to be back and race more aggressive! It was another nice experience in Argentina and I really like the fans over there! Congratulations to the podium finishers and my teammate Jelle for taking 4th place, well done!

We flew back home from Argentina on Monday. Stopped for 1 night in Brazil and arrived in Amsterdam on Wednesday. We did some easy training sessions during the week and raced the 3-Nations Cup in Zolder, Belgium (Home to the 2015 UCI BMX World Championships) last Sunday. My jetlag wasn’t totally over, but I didn’t feel too bad and racing was fun. This race was also important for Olympic country points and we did real well, because we got 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place with the elite men. I wasn’t happy to get 4th, because I know I could do better. Anyway, together with my teammates we got maximum points for our country, that’s why we raced!

This Saturday I traveled to California for the last UCI BMX Supercross (World Cup) in Chula Vista. Looking forward to race and get more points for the overall ranking.

Jerry Mania Sez! ..... And BMX Mania will be there to catch RVDB on the podium!

ANSWER BMX and ANSR Motocross Team Up to Bring Race Wear to the BMX Market
ANSWER BMX and ANSR Motocross have teamed up to offer the Syncron line of ANSR race wear and ANSR helmet lines to the global BMX race market.

ANSWER BMX President and CEO John Sawyer stated, “The guys at ANSR are the best at what they do in terms of offering stylish, functional, and cost effective motocross race wear. It only makes good business sense to team up with our brother company to bring their expertise to the BMX race market.”

ANSWER BMX Vice President, Ryan Birk followed with, “I’ve personally been wearing the ANSR Motocross Syncron line of race wear since I began working with ANSWER six years ago. The gear is stylish, durable, very lightweight, and affordable. It’s a perfect fit for the BMX market. And the designs and fashion have gotten better and better ever year. ANSR is definitely on top of their game and pushing their image forward, just like we are at ANSWER BMX.”

ANSWER BMX displayed the new 2015 ANSR Syncron line of race wear and 2015 ANSR helmet line in their booth this past week at the 2014 Interbike Show in Las Vegas. Also, be on the lookout for more exciting news and offerings from both ANSWER BMX and ANSR Motocross in the weeks to come.
