Take a quick peek at Caroline Buchanan putting in some last minute work before the 2015 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup Season.
This edit of Filip Svanberg is going to make you want to get on the first flight to Spain. All the spots he rides look so perfect. This Alicante track pops up a lot here on Next Level. It’s one of those tracks that’s built to make you a better rider. If you can handle that track, you can handle anything. Also there’s a skatepark clip of Filip doing a nose bonk on a volcano riding a Carbon GT frame.
“Alicante, Spain is where you have the best conditions to train outdoors in europe during the winter, the sun is shining, good BMX tracks, much trails. You will never be disappointed here!
This is a video from my eight weeks long training camp here in Alicante.”
Amanda Carr gets a solid start then completely misses the backside of the double after turn two. Then she leaves the door wide open for Kristen Bob in turn 2 to take over the race. Kelsey Van Ogle catches up, takes the outside line through the last turn, and makes the pass for the win!

What a race! Joris Daudet makes it to the top of the podium and Anthony Dean puts together a great lap after getting caught up in the first turn. Keep your eyes on him as he makes two passes to move from 4th to 2nd.

Props to Danny D for posting the video!
This one is goooooood! Dylan’s got that fast and smooth style we all love and kills it on the dirt jumps and in the skatepark. Watch those 360s!
EPIC first turn crash! Christopher Fisher is the only rider to make it out on two wheels and takes home the easy win.
Once again, whoever is in charge of operating the camera totally blows it and misses the crash. Get it together!
43 Ams signed up to give the SX hill a try last weekend at Rock Hill. The open class was open to anyone 15 and over who thought they could make it down the hill. I thought they’d be hitting the entire pro track, but after turn 1 they cut back over to the Am side. 43 riders signed up to give it a shot and Alec Bob came out on top of the podium.
Also, shout out to whoever was in charge of filming the hill. Way to blow it!
Shanaze Reade has got it right by saying “Coaching is about putting back into the sport.” She coached a clinic of up and coming Irish riders who are beginning to compete in the British BMX series. Shout out to Lar for posting the video and keeping the rest of the world up to date with the Irish BMX scene and Corinne Walder for putting the video together.
Excuse my lack of posting during spring break and SXSW here in Austin. Here’s a throwback to one of the best supercross races ever with a photo finish between Connor Fields and Sam Willoughby. The race came down to just .0002 second! Also keep your eyes open for all of the crashes in this one. They’re everywhere!
Guillermo Alvarez dropped this one off in the inbox of him doing some coaching with the junio and elite riders out of Spain. The crew hit up some of Spain’s finest tracks, the gym, and even a velodrome to do some off season training.
