Kyle Short

I’m really stoked to put up this edit of Kyle Short! He’s been a fan of Next Level for a while now and I’m glad to finally feature some of his riding and work. Kyle’s a good dude who’s got plenty of projects that I’m excited to see released. For now, enjoy this quick one of him shredding on home turf.

Chase / DHR BMX YMCA Summer Camp Edit

Take a look at the “BMX Pro for a Week” program that Dale Holmes is working on to introduce new riders to the sport of BMX. In the week long camp, he takes the crew to Southern California’s finest tracks to show them the ropes. Community programs like this are awesome and a great way to bring new riders into our sport!

Starting off with the right foot forward is a great way to get kids hooked on BMX . Dale even noted that there’s a few that would make great racers. Great work, Dale!

“In celebration of our second year of, “BMX Pro for a Week”, summer camp through a cooperative adventure with the YMCA of San Diego County – we had a new edit done to show you first-hand a day in the life of our campers. We cover bike and street safety, the importance of wearing protective gear, why leading a healthful lifestyle is important both on and off the track and the fundamentals of BMX Racing. Our ultimate goal is to introduce the sport of BMX racing to more kids and to excite those already interested in getting more involved. We’ve been grateful for the support of our sponsors and also for the support of USABMX. Check it out.”

Weighing In: Zolder UCI Worlds Track

Nic Long Zolder

Nic Long blames poor performance at the UCI Worlds in Zolder on lack of preparation. On the other hand, you have Connor Fields dropping tweets like this blaming tracks:

For your reference , here’s a video I found to put this argument into perspective. This is from an 8 boys moto. I think a USA rider gets third. Technical is an understatement for this track.

So who’s to blame here – the tracks we have here in the states or the riders? On this one, I’m going to have to side with Nic. I think a lot of it comes down to riders not being prepared.
