BMX RACING NEWS - Monday - July 29, 2013


Local Organizing Committee News Release - Australian Caroline Buchanan put the demons of the London Olympics behind her when she won the Elite Women’s title at the UCI BMX World Championships inside the Vector Arena.

“I had first lane choice at London,” said Buchanan “I took lane 3 and blew it. I made sure I didn’t make the same mistake again and went for lane one this time around.”

She got the holeshot and cut off Olympic champion Mariana Pajon in the first straight, taking the Columbian out of contention.

“When it comes to finals you’ve got to release the mongrel and get aggressive. I just wanted to get out front and stay out of trouble,” said Buchanan.

Once the dust settled fellow Australian Lauren Reynolds was second and Manon Valentino of France was third.

Auckland was the first international BMX event Buchanan has done since the Olympics. “I put a lot of pressure on myself to succeed.” And it’s not over yet. Buchanan will be contesting the World Downhill Mountain bike and Mountain bike 4 Cross championships – a title she has won twice before – over the next two months.

There was no fairy tale ending for home town darling Sarah Walker who was already nursing a broken arm in a special protective splint.

She came down in practice before racing and in an effort to protect the arm she landed heavily on her shoulder stretching the AC joint. She rolled around at the back of the three qualifying motos to end her meeting.

Englishman Liam Phillips made the most of his opportunities after most of the sport’s heavy hitters had eliminated one another in a quarter final crash fest.

Kiwi Marc Willers was the only World Champion finalist from last year to make it through the eights, quarters and semi-finals to the main event.

Phillips led from the start and once Willers decided not to attempt a “death or glory” passing move in the second corner, the Englishman was home and hosed.

“Apart from 2011, I’ve been to every Worlds since 1996 when I was a kid,” said Phillips. “It’s the first time I’ve won.”

After the Olympics, Phillips said he decided to target the World Championships. He didn’t race on the USA pro circuit but stayed home and trained on and indoor track at Manchester similar to the one at Vector Arena.

“We knew it would be tight and planned for this,” said Phillips. “I knew my form was quite good when I won the Manchester World Cup, but then I made mistakes at the next two World Cups in Europe.”

“I just wanted to keep the mistakes to a minimum and I managed that.”

Felicia Stancil of the United States added to her impressive growing list of World titles when she took out the Junior Women’s crown – her 14th in succession as she has come through the age grades. It was her second success in 24 hours after winning the time trial on Saturday.

Shayona Glynn made it a USA double and first year junior Hannah Sarten claimed third for New Zealand.

America was also successful in the junior men with Sean Gaian, claiming the title from Argentina’s Gonzalo Molina and Jeremy Rencurel of France.

ProGate Expands
To New Zealand

Tauranga, NZ – July 7, 2013 – Pro Gate by ProStuff is and has been the WORLD standard, and now it will be manufactured on a worldwide basis.

ProStuff President, Pierce Barker III, has announced that Pro Gate has expanded their manufacturing capabilities of BMX + MTB starting gates and set up shop in New Zealand under the leadership of Rod Tarr.

Rod will be building the world standard BMX starting gates under license from Pro Gate and will be starting with delivery to New Zealand and Australia, with plans to expand to other areas.

Rod had this to say about the new endeavor, "Pierce, Jay and the rest of the US team have worked hard to make this a success for the UCI Auckland Championships! I am proud to be part of the World Class ProGate Organization.".

According to Pierce, “I’m excited about the news and our success in opening manufacturing in NZ, it’s a great opportunity for us. Manufacturing in New Zealand means severely decreased freight costs for our customers in New Zealand and Australia while still maintaining the same top notch Pro Gate quality that we are known for around the world!”

The new agreement was worked out with the help of Pro Gate operations agent, Jon Sarten and the first New Zealand built product has already been delivered.

NZ Pro Gate #1 was delivered Tuesday to the Vector Arena in Auckland, New Zealand for use during the 2013 UCI BMX World Championships beginning next Monday. Certainly a proud moment for Pro Gate AND BMX New Zealand.

Installation of the new UCI Worlds gate will begin Friday in Auckland to be completed in time for Challenge Class practices on Monday.

Officially Licensed Ducati Corse STRIDER No-Pedal Balance Bikes Give Toddlers The Look Of Famous Motorcycle Racing Champions
Rapid City, SD (July 15, 2013) - Building on the worldwide success of the original STRIDER bike (over 500,000 sold to date), the new Special Edition Nicky Hayden Ducati Corse STRIDER gives toddlers a bike with the true look of a motorcycle champion! After hopping on the Ducati Desmosedici GP13 inspired STRIDER bike, any toddler will want to feel the thrill of racing like their heroes.

If a toddler can walk, the Ducati Corse STRIDER will have them cruising over dirt, grass, and pavement. The bike is mechanically the same as a standard STRIDER, but is customized with graphics inspired by the livery of the Ducati Desmosedici GP13 and a number plate sporting the famous race number used by Ducati's superstar Nicky Hayden, for an authentic racing look.

The Ducati Corse STRIDER bike is a must-have developmental tool for children aged 18 months to five years. It weighs just 6.7 pounds, is easy to control, and features an adjustable seat and handlebars to accommodate a growing child. Most importantly, the STRIDER bike teaches children balance and coordination and develops a glittering confidence not seen with tricycles or training wheel bikes.

The STRIDER bike was recently tested at the University of South Dakota's Division of Kinesiology and Sport Science where a study conducted over a four-week period with three to five-year-old children concluded that participants benefited from using a STRIDER bike by improving their balance and functional fitness, while likely reducing future injuries during their daily routines.

"The Ducati Corse STRIDER is an exciting new addition to our line of moto branded STRIDERS," says Ryan McFarland, Founder of Strider. "The Ducati brand is synonymous with performance and passion for riding. We're thrilled to bring that trademark Ducati red and all the official logos to our STRIDER bike, offering the look of a true racing machine!"

Walker confident of start in UCI BMX World Championship in Auckland

Olympic silver medallist Sarah Walker is confident she will be on the start ramp for next week’s UCI BMX World Championships in Auckland.

Walker still has her arm in a brace after suffering a hairline fracture of her radius after a crash racing in the United States recently.

The 25 year old plans to be back on her bike this week and is determined to compete in the world championships in her home country from 24-28 July.

“If it was not in New Zealand then I would probably consider skipping it because of the injury,” Walker said at a World Championship promotion at Sylvia Park at the weekend.

“This is the first time the worlds have been in New Zealand and most likely it won’t be back here while I am still competing. I’ve raced 10 straight years at the world championships and it would suck to miss the 11th one when it is here in New Zealand.”

BikeNZ’s BMX Coach Ryan Hollows said the fracture is healing faster than expected and medical advice confirmed that Walker should be able to compete.

“She won’t be 100 per cent but we are confident she will make it. The facture is healing quickly and Sarah is doing everything she can, with twice daily ultra-sound treatments.

“She is a very tough person. Sarah battled with a broken shoulder with little racing behind her and yet won a silver medal at London.”

Hollows is pleased with the development of the high performance squad after returning from training and racing in the USA.

“Sarah was finding some really good form so the crash was a pity. She will come in to the championships with no expectations and you just never know because she is such a talented rider.

“Kurt Pickard is starting find some outstanding form and the other guys are really developing well.”

The team leave for Queensland tomorrow where they will complete their final preparations on the Supercross track near Brisbane.

“The racing and training in the US was just what we needed. Of course there were no high ramps there, so the eight days in Brisbane will be plenty of time for the riders to dial in to the 8m ramp and big jumps ready for the championships.”

The team returns to Auckland on 25 July with their first official training session on the track at Vector Arena on Friday 27 July with elite racing starting the following day.

Work began today on building the ramp and track in Vector Arena and will be completed this weekend.

The Championships begin with the Challenge class (age group) on Wednesday 24 July and Thursday 25 July, with elite practice on Friday ahead of the time trial world title decided on Saturday 27 July and finals on Sunday 28 July.

The event has received the backing of Telecom, Major Events, Sport New Zealand, ATEED, Avanti Bikes, Avanti Finance, Pub Charity, Lion Foundation, Anchor, The Radio Network, Pullman Hotels, Tissot Timing and Santini.

World champions set to defend BMX titles in Auckland

Defending champions Sam Willoughby and Connor Fields will defend their titles at the UCI BMX World Championships in Auckland later this month.

Willoughby (Australia) won the overall title in Birmingham last year while Fields (USA) earned the rainbow jersey in the Super Time Trial. Both stars today confirmed that they will head to New Zealand, joining double Olympic gold medallist Maris Strombergs who announced his entry last week for the UCI BMX World Championships at the Vector Arena in Auckland on July 24-28.

The 21-year-old Willoughby is the hottest rider on the planet this year, with 13 straight wins on the USA BMX Nationals circuit while 20 year old Fields has four World Cup Supercross wins to his credit and was the USA National Champion last year.

Willoughby, the Californian-based South Australian, does not believe his success last year adds extra pressure in Auckland.

“It always puts a bit of a target on your back coming in as the defending champion and people want to take the crown. I just want to keep that rainbow jersey,” Willoughby said.

He is buoyed after his record-setting form this year, although he will bypass the opportunity to extend his winning run in Pittsburgh as he heads to Canada for final preparations.

“I have had a really good year, actually since before the Grand Nationals last year. Any time you are winning it is good for your confidence,” Willoughby said.

“I will come in to the worlds with the knowledge that I know how to win a race. That’s always a positive. I just want to do the same thing I have been doing in these races and try to put another one together.”

A key to his improvement has been his move to Australian coach Sean Dwight.

“For the last two years I’ve been floating along on my own trying to figure things out and it just got me by. We have pretty much flipped everything since I started working with him last September. It is definitely working. The biggest thing is to have someone to chat with when I need.”

Fields has raced around the globe this year, currently second with one round remaining in the UCI Supercross World Cup.

“I like the Supercross style of track than the traditional USA BMX track. I think it is more fun,” Fields said. “It has made it better by being able to showcase what we can do. With the tracks bigger and faster not only has it improved our skills as riders, we are able to show the world just what we are capable of.”

The Las Vegas rider, who swapped a promising career in football for BMX, has never looked back.

“I like the individualism of BMX. If I do well or not, then it is on me and I don’t have to rely on a teammate. I like that it is different every single time. If you are doing stick or ball sport, or swimming or track and field, it is the same every time. You never get two tracks the same in BMX so it always keeps it fresh.”

The pair agrees on what it will take to win at this month’s world championships at Vector Arena.

“The holeshot is huge. It is the most important thing by far. And the smaller the track the more important and it is a lot easier to win from the front that it is to pass people especially on a smaller and tighter track,” Fields said.

Willoughby agrees. “The biggest thing is going to be to get to the first corner first. That is always the goal in all BMX races but when it is in a tight indoor arena it is pretty much the race. That will be the main thing to execute.

“The big plus is that it will be a great atmosphere and a really great vibe. New Zealand is like Australia and they get behind their sport. I’d like to think there will be plenty of Australians heading over to watch and support us.”

Organisers expect more than 2000 riders from 30 countries for the Championships, although entries to not close until 12 July.

The Championships begin with the Challenge class (age group) on Wednesday 24 July and Thursday 25 July, with elite practice on Friday ahead of the time trial world title decided on Saturday 27 July and finals on Sunday 28 July.

The event is supported by Major Events, Sport New Zealand, Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED), Telecom, Avanti Bikes, Avanti Finance, Pub Charity, Lion Foundation, Anchor, The Radio Network, Pullman Hotels, Tissot Timing and Santini.

BMX RACING NEWS - Monday - July 1, 2013

Double Olympic gold medallist Maris Strombergs has confirmed his entry for this month’s UCI BMX World Championship presented by Telecom in Auckland.

Strombergs, from Latvia, is the sport’s biggest name, having won two BMX World elite titles as well as the Olympic gold medal both in Beijing, where the sport made its debut, and again in London last year.

The 26 year old will be one of the clear favourites when the UCI BMX World Championships comes to New Zealand for the first time, to be staged at Vector Arena on 24-28 July.

He will be part of a five-strong team from Latvia, according to coach Ivo Lakucs, himself a two-time Olympian in track cycling at Sydney 2000 and also in BMX at Beijing where he was a quarterfinalist.

Strombergs has recently returned to racing following a lengthy break after the Olympics.

“Growing up I never thought I'd be able to call myself a two time Olympic champion. But after winning the Olympics it was hard to keep myself motivated, my mind set just wasn't in it anymore. I decided to end the season early.

“I kept busy while I was back home in Latvia with all the media and trying to get some training in for the season. I got to do a lot of cross country skiing which I really enjoyed, made training a little fun. It was just good to do something different.

“I didn’t want to get back on my bike before I started missing it again and got that hunger back. After taking a break I am happy to be back riding and racing again.”

He has recently returned to the US after winning the overall European BMX Championship, amassing seven wins in the 10 rounds held in France, Czech Republic, Germany, Sweden and Latvia over the last two months.

He had to be content with second in both final rounds in the Latvian capital of Riga to compatriot Edzus Treimaris, who will also compete in Auckland.

“It was great doing the whole series again,” said Strombergs. “I’m really looking forward to this season. And now I am looking forward to racing in New Zealand.”

Strombergs took up the sport at age six years and won his first world challenge title at nine. Nicknamed “The Machine”, Strombergs splits his time between his home in Valiera in Latvia and Murrieta in southern California.

Organisers expect more than 2000 riders from 30 countries for the championships, although entries to not close until 12 July.

The Championships begin with the Challenge class (age group) on Wednesday 24 July and Thursday 25 July, with elite practice on Friday ahead of the time trial world title decided on Saturday 27 July and finals on Sunday 28 July.
