Nick Fox is headed over to the US for 2-3 months of racing this summer, so this is the last video from his local spot for a while. He’s got steeze for days and I can’t wait to see what he comes up with on some different tracks while in the US. Good luck!
Also, like Nick’s Facebook Page to keep updated in his travels!
Danny Caluag gets it done from gate two winning from start to finish. The good race to watch is the battle for second/third. Those two dudes fight all the way to the end. If you don’t really care who is in the final, just skip to the one minute mark to get straight to the racing.
Congrats to Alise Post for getting her third straight win at the USA Cycling Elite National Championships! She gets the pull from the start and never looks back. Arielle Martin does give her a good race but can’t make a pass happen. There was even some Jr. Elites in the mix and Shealen Reno comes through and gets a respectable third.

Manchester may already be in the record books, but Chase just came out with this nice recap with Connor Fields. The footage from his time trial is unbelievable. I don’t think there’s anyone racing that rides there bike with that much control. Every single jump, pedal, and turn looks absolutely dialed.
This is some serious manual control. I don’t know anything else about this video, so if this is you leave a comment with who you are so I can give credit where credit is due. Also, your mom wouldn’t be stoked on the song, so mute it if she’s listening.
This week was Next Level’s first birthday! I’m also finally done with school for the summer and I’m back in Houston for the summer. Everyone at Pearland BMX has the new track almost complete, so once that’s done I’ll be working on all sorts of video projects out there.
If you’ve got video of the USA Jr./Elite National Championship, I’d be stoked if you sent it over to me so I could post it today or tomorrow.
Morgan Wade is one of the most talented people to touch a bike ever. At Texas Toast Jam last year, he flipped the most difficult obstacle on the Gauntlet of Death like it was nothing. In this edit, you can see him do some more insane transfers at skate parks and on street.
I post this as I get hyped up for Hangtown this weekend. KTM makes an electric dirt bike and held a demo race to show it off. Arnaud Dubois makes an appearance as does Joel Smets. Joel raced BMX as cross training for when he used to race the MX GP circuit and even owns a track in Belgium. These bikes look like an hour of fun (joke at the expense of their battery life there). Interesting fact is that electric motors have instant torque which means a lot of power all at once.
Shanaze Reade gets some massive pull down the first straight with Mariana Pajon in the 2 spot. Mariana had way more track speed and is almost able to pass by but can’t make it happen. Watch how much she catches up in the second turn alone though.
In the Men’s final, Connor Fields dominates. In the second straight, watch how much more control he has over the doubles than the guy in second. Joris Daudet is on the new carbon GT frame and ends up with a solid third. If you watch closely you’ll notice that he takes a different line through the third straight than everyone else too.
They should seriously let the riders catch their breath before they shove a microphone in their face for an interview though.
