Hey, BMX Maniacs! Wow, LOOK OUT......Here comes 2015! It seems just like yesterday that we were launching 2014, which quickly became The Year Of Sam Willoughby! Mr. Willoughby took off like a rocket on the USABMX National Circuit, winning many a race in the series from Reno, Nevada to Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Sam wound down for a few races in late Spring and early Summer, getting geared up for the UCI Worlds in Rotterdam, Holland and it paid off for him with an Elite Men's World #1. Sam got back on the gas for the second half of the USABMX Pro Series and won 9 out of 10 Pro Series races leading up to a USABMX AA Pro National #1 for 2014. A BIG year for Sam!

BMX Racing News - weekend update - December 12-14, 2014

St. Etienne BMX Indoor Kicks Off, Felicia Stancil suffers big Practice Crash!
LATE BREAKING NEWS : We just learned that Felicia Stancil, one of the major guest stars of the St Etienne BMX Indoor (France) fell violently, while practicing yesterday night, and would be suffering from the hip and the head, she was evacuated to the University Hospital of St Etienne … Scary bad , and let’s hope it’s not too serious and more of a precautionary process. Keep tuning… and send some "Get Better FAST" vibes to the young pro GT ambassador..

The US BMX Circuit went quiet for a few weeks after the USABMX /ABA Grands… But this weekend, there’s some major action in France and for most of the Europeans as the “classic” 19th Saint Etienne BMX Indoor receive the top amateurs and most of the Elites around for the “ Trophée des Nations” with the appearance of some major stars and a few comebacks!


Mariana PAJON: Since the last SX Chula Vista last September, Olympic champion confirmed his coming. From what we’ve seen at the ABA Grands , we can expect her in front of the pack.

Teagan O'KEEFFE: Joris Daudet’s favorite racegirl has confirmed her participation: Following his serious fall at Worlds , she will make her comeback in St Etienne. She might not be at 100% yet but she might be in the way of few locals for the mains.

Simone CHRISTENSEN: The Danish, W4 and Euro #3 this year won’t make the trip to St Etienne this year, watch for the Flying Dane on the World Cup circuit...

Laura SMULDERS: Bronze medalist at the last Olympics, this week birthday girl will show again that it was no fluke.

Felicia STANCIL: Thanks to Frenchy's Distribution, The young US GT star, National College Champion with Marian, will bring some “stars & stripes” vista to this European-style! <UPDATE> After yesterday nasty spill, this fast athlete might be signing autographs at Frenchy's instead of snappin' gates on the track, although she is back on her feet and talkin' about maybe hitting up Friday practice…

Stephanie HERNANDEZ: The Venezuelan, who spent time at the Aigle’s UCI World Training Center and also raced in France for a year, showed some amazing improvement this year and knows the Euro-style tracks…

Magalie POTTIER, Eva AILLOUD, will be there obviously on their own turf but sadly Manon VALENTINO, the national champion, will have to watch from the side line in her own town, due to a ongoing knee injury recovery...

Pauline CORLOBE: Speaking of injury, Pauline took the time to get back to racing form and might want to show that she still belongs to the French dynasty of Fast Girls

But obviously the comeback that gets everybody talking is ... Laetitïa LE CORGUILLE: Back after a maternity and a tough 4th place at London Olympics, the Beijing silver medalist wants to know how far she is from a third Olympic Main…


Barry NOBLES: Thanks again to French importer Frenchy's and DK, the fun-loving, stylish dare devil won’t miss an opportunity to rock the ST Etienne Exhibition Center

Edzus TREIMANIS: This “kid” has given nightmares to the locals Frogs since he turned Junior…

Liam PHILLIPS, Kyle EVANS, Tre WHYTE: The 2014 UCI SX World Cup winner, master of the Indoors, brings 2 of his lieutenants to wage war in France. It's gonna get dusty !

Joris DAUDET: The globetrotting champion seldomly races in France lately so he has the intention of showing why he’s the French leader…

Vincent Pelluard: Another great rider that spend more time out of the country and wants to show his new sponsors

Simon DUCHENE: This young rider went to train for a few months stateside with Joris Daudet and expect to show he’s back 100% and no rookie (anymore)

Quentin Caleyron: It’s his hometown and the French Olympian wants to shine in front of his crowd

Sylvain ANDRE: Back from Colombia for a UCI race among friends and under new colors, he motivated to show his international level

Romain RICCARDI: Anchor of the St Etienne team which earned the National Team Title 2014, National Italian champion and winner of the French Cup, this BMX warrior could make a “hold up” …

And then some veterans: Damien & Julien GODET, Moana MOO-CAILLE …  and then some not-so-rookies: Romain MAHIEU, Romain RACINE, Antoine DUMAIN, Quentin DEROM

Look Out, BMX World.....The ice is going to melt in St Etienne!
