#flashbackfriday – Super Girls 2000

Instead of Freestyle Friday I’m doing something a bit different this week. Here’s the Super Girls (comparable to Elite Women of today? I never raced NBL so I don’t know what exactly defined Super Girls) main from South Park in 2000. For comparison, here’s also a video of the Elite Women race in 2012:

Riding style has most definitely changed and is the obvious part of the video. The track has changed a bit too but if you time the races there’s only about a 2 second time difference. That’s actually a lot less than I expected. Take in to consideration that in 2000 everyone was on flat pedals and then ask yourself how the girls of today would stack up against the girls of 2000.

USA BMX Disney Cup 2012 – Elite Women Day 3

If anyone is Friends with Rusty Dial on facebook, you’ve already seen these and 100 other videos he’s posted from this weekend along with a lap by lap report on his racing in the Vet Pro class. Check Caroline Buchanan put down some serious power and lead from start to finish in this one. I saw on instagram (maybe twitter) a post she made about the weak purse of only  $330 for an Elite Women main win. I have to agree, these ladies put in way too much work for such a small check. Here’s the results:

1  CAROLINE BUCHANAN, SPEEDCO BICYCLES, CANBERRA ACT, AU AUS
2  (INSANE) BROOKE CRAIN, HARO, VISALIA, CA
3  DOMINIQUE (3D) DANIELS, DOUBLECROSS BIKES, GILBERT, AZ
