Team Clip

The guys at ride100percent filmed this cool little clip of the Team.

USA BMX South Park

The South Park, PA race has got to be one of the most iconic events on the US calendar since the 80s, whether it be during the NBL days or since the merge into USABMX in recent years. The track is always a favorite with the Elite / AAs even today with only a few tweaks over the years everyone still loves South Park.

Dani George is in fine form at the moment even though she missed out on making the US Olympic Team she has still been a pivotal member of Team USA’s Olympic preparation training team with Brooke Crain in her Rio build up. Dani made the trip out to South Park and cleaned up winning both days and some good scores going into the year-end points chase.

Salt Lake City Nationals

The Great Salt Lake Nationals has been a regular stop on the USA BMX Tour and is always a top-notch event coupled with good weather this time of year. Both Anthony Dean and Dani George were ready to put the World Championships behind and after a few solid weeks of training down in San Diego, they were both ready to get some good results in on the domestic calendar.

Friday, Anthony was feeling strong all day and come main time — not even World Champion, Joris Daudet could stop him taking that much-eluded National win he has come close to many times. Anthony not only took the first place check but also grabbed the Holeshot bonus as well.

Saturday, once again Anthony feeling good again and backing Friday’s win he grabbed a 2nd place behind Chase’s Joris Daudet. Great weekend and more confidence in the bag going into this summer’s Olympic Games.

Dani George was feeling good placing 2nd on Friday behind National Champion, Alise Post but an unlucky crash out in Saturday’s semi final left her out of the main. Even tough it was disappointing, Dani knows she’s riding well and can carry it through the summer.

In all, a great weekend for the team with 3 podium finishes.

UCI World Championships Medellin, Colombia

The UCI World Championships in Medellin, Colombia have both come and gone, and it wasn’t the weekend Dani George and Anthony Dean were looking for. Sometimes bad luck strikes and there is nothing you can do about it – that’s bmx racing. Congratulations to Joris Daudet and Mariana Pajon on taking the Rainbow Jerseys in the Elite classes. Both Anthony and Dani head back to California to rest up and get ready for the next stop on the USA BMX Tour in Salt Lake, Utah in a few weeks time.

UCI World Cup #3 Papendal Holland

Round 3 of the UCI World Cup headed to Papendal, Holland over the weekend. With Dani George still recovering from injury, Anthony Dean was representing us alongside fulfilling his role on the Australian National Team. This was the last World Cup before the World Championships in Colombia in 3 weeks time and the Olympic Games in Rio, so it was a very important event to gain points for Olympic selection.

Anthony was on his third weekend in a row racing but as planned, continues building results, confidence and speed week-by-week. During qualification, he felt he was back to where he needs to be – winning laps and placing 2nd in the semi final behind 2 x Olympic Champion, Maris Strombergs.

Going up for the final, Anthony really looked like he had a shot to win or get on the podium but got a little sideways out of the gate, which shut down his momentum so he hit plan B mode and started to put himself in a good position down the first straight enabling him to start picking off some riders on the track to still get a good result.

Unfortunately, Joris Daudet, who was battling with Maris Strombergs, went down on the second straight and Anthony ran into the back of him resulting in the end of his race and a 7th place finish for the day. Not the result he was looking for, especially riding and feeling good, but he takes away more confidence to build on and good form going into the World Championships.

Thanks to the Australian National Team for taking care of Anthony over in Europe and to all of our team sponsors for their support.
