CONNOR FIELDS E CAROLINE BUCHANAN!

 
     
 

I due confermano il risultato dei Time Trials andando a vincere entrambi sulla linea d'arrivo. Una gara in generale molto interessante grazie ad un tracciato meno estremo che ha permesso ai riders di arrivare molto vicini sino agli ultimi metri.

Per Fields è la terza vittoria consecutiva in Coppa del MONDO, ottenuta con un arrivo al fotofinish su Willoughby con un margine di 2 millesimi di secondo !!!

UCI SUPERCROSS BMX - press release

Buchanan and Fields victorious with extremely close finishes


Randaberg Norway 14 April 2012 – Connor Fields (USA) won his third UCI BMX Supercross event in a row in the closest photo finish ever in Supercross history. Sam Willoughby (AUS) and the almost 3000 fans in the Randaberg Arena thought Willoughby had pulled it of. Swiss Timing kept everybody in suspense for a few seconds but the photo finish determined Fields was 0.002 seconds clear of his Australian rival.


Fields claims three in a row

Connor Fields won his third UCI BMX Supercross World Cup event in a row. The rider from Las Vegas claimed victory in the last Supercross World Cup of 2011 in Chula Vista, CA. He also claimed the gold in the 2012 opening event also on Chula Vista. Leaving the world to think that he is unstoppable on his home track. But with his win Norway Fields shows he is fast on any track anywhere anytime. Listen to Fields here.

1) Fields C (USA) 32.063
2) Willoughby S (AUS) +0.002

Buchanan ecstatic

Manuel De Vecchi riesce a superare le qualifiche ma deve cedere nei quarti di finale: partito dalla 7, fa un buon primo rettilineo però si trova tutto esterno in prima curva tiene il passo ma chiude in 5a posizione.

Peccato per Romain Riccardi che esce nelle manche per un solo punto, battuto dal redivivo svizzero Roger Rinderknecht.

>>

Poteva andare meglio ed entrambi hanno ancora una volta dimostrato di avere la possibilità di ottenere piazzamenti più importanti. Sono comunque altri preziosi punti olimpici per l'Italia.

Fields & Buchanan both win Superfinal Time Trial twice in a row

Connor Fields "happy"

Randaberg, Norway 13 April, 2012 – Caroline Buchanan (AUS) and Connor Fields (USA) again claimed victory in the Superfinal Time Trials during the second round of the 2012 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series in Randaberg, Norway. Less than a month ago this duo did exactly the same in Chula Vista California.

That is remarkable considering this a small, fast, custom-build, indoor track compared to the much bigger, downhill, Beijing Olympic replica track. In other words, these two riders are unstoppable in their current form and can win anywhere.

Tomorrow the racing continues. 64 men have qualified out of 121. 31 women, out of 41, will also forward into the finals in Randaberg Norway. Racing starts 4.00 pm (CEST) You can watch it live from 6.40 pm on www.BMXLive.tv

Connor Fields said that being happy makes the biggest difference.
“What is the secret? ….I go out there and do my best it pays off. Good preparation good coaching…. You know, I am happy right now, I am feeling good and that results in great form and me riding well. Tomorrow I am going to go out there and do my best. I want to win every race I am in.”

“I don't think I have a certain kind of track that suits me. A lot of people have been saying that I am only good at Chula Vista. You know I just enjoy riding my bike that is all that counts.”

Caroline Buchanan, fastest girl on the track

“I still can’t believe I won. I mean Chula Vista was the first time trials I had ever won. I know that Time Trials is one of my specialties. Doing 4-cross and downhill helped me having smooth runs. And I managed to transfer that smoothness to BMX. But I still can’t believe I won another one. It is great to win this but I really want to transfer this experience in to racing. This means that you are the fastest girl on the track. But so much can happen in racing you have to put that al together. In Chula (Vista) I finished fifth. If I get top three tomorrow, I am stoked.”

Qualificati DE VECCHI (24°) e RICCARDI (34° )

Ottima prestazione dei due azzurri che centrano la qualifica con buoni tempi, è evidente che il livello è stratosferico e rientrare nei primi 30 del mondo non è cosa da poco!

Soffrono molto gli altri riders nazionali, Cristofoli (70° tempo) fuori per 72 millesimi di secondo !!!
Più indietro Virdis, Fantoni e Furlan tutti attorno alla 100a posizione. Non abbiamo notizie dai nostri, difficile dire cosa non abbia funzionato.

Oggi si sono svolte le prime prove sulla pista di Randaberg, caricate sul web una serie di interviste con i top riders, tutti sono concordi nel dire che si tratta di una delle migliori piste indoor realizzate fino ad ora. In qualche punto è un po' morbida, le curve sono belle, un po' irregolari a volte ma sono ok. Anche qualche salto, in particolare il secondo della seconda linea, è piuttosto appuntito ma tutto sommato ok.

GLI ISCRITTI - 127 uomini, 44 donne, 26 nazioni

Anche a RANDABERG la lotta per la qualifica sarà durissima.
Non ci sarà STROMBERGS. Assente per l'infortunio di Chula Vista anche Jelle van Gorkom. Le ultime notizie, direttamente dal papà di Jelle, alle 18.30 del 10/4, dicono che Jelle è stato dimesso dall'ospedale, resterà a riposare in un albergo di San Diego in attesa che i medici gli diano l'ok per il volo di rientro in Europa. Comunque si sta riprendendo bene.
Tra le donne rientrano Sarah Walker e Shanaze Reade ma mancherà Mariana Pajon.

UCI BMX SX - PRESS RELEASE

UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series premieres in Norway 12-14 April


9 April 2012 – The Randaberg Arena, close to beautiful Stavanger on Norway’s scenic southwest coast, has been transformed into a challenging Supercross track complete with the now so familiar jumps and Supercross start hill. This spectacular and spectator friendly BMX-event will be the second stop of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series of the 2012 season and will be the first time that the world’s best BMX racers will compete on this custom-made Supercross track in Norway. Over 170 riders from 26 nations are registered for this three-day event; considered to be one of the key events in BMX leading up to the 2012 London Olympic Games. For some nations this event could be a key-qualifier, while for others their focus will be on other events this year.

Elite women: Walker and Reade in and Pajon out
2010 World Champion Shanaze Reade (GBR) will start her Olympic BMX Supercross year in Norway after missing out the stop in the USA. Sarah Walker (NZL) will also start racing again. Walker – 2009 World Champion – although present in America, eventually decided not to race and predicted to be ready for the start in Norway. The current World Champion Mariana Pajon (COL) is out with an injury after crashing in the last Supercross race. Arielle Martin (USA) will be keen to improve her form after her Chula Vista performance. And Magalie Pottier (FRA) will want to prove that her Chula Vista victory will be the first one of many.

An un-ridden track with tight and hectic brick-turns

Elite men: Can Fields win three in a row?
With the men, the big question is: can Connor Fields (USA) win three Supercross races in a row? It will always be difficult to predict any BMX Supercross World Cup -especially on this un-ridden track with its tight and hectic brick-turns.
But fact remains that Fields was almost unstoppable on the last two stops of 2011 as well as the first stop of 2012 on his ‘home’ track in Chula Vista. Can he maintain that form on a completely different course, with all riders only having a maximum of two hours practice on it?

Some of the top Elite-men are missing.
Jelle Van Gorkom (NED) is recovering from his crash in Chula Vista. He is expected to make a full recovery, but will not be racing for a while.
Maris Strombergs (LAT), the current Olympic Champion, has not signed up. But Sam Willoughby (AUS), second in Chula Vista just two weeks ago, is ready to race, as is current World Champion Joris Daudet (FRA). Or will local-boy Andre Fossa Aguiluz (NOR) be able to grab a podium place, as he did last year in Denmark, winning the World Championships BMX time trials?

Back to back UCI BMX Supercross events
With only two weeks since the first 2012 Supercross event in Chula Vista, California, the organizers have worked flat-out to create this second stop on the other side of the globe in Norway – a first in its own right!

The organizers are rightly proud to have overcome this logistic challenge, especially during the Easter holiday. Many thanks go out to logistical partner Rock-It-Cargo.

The riders in the meantime have also been busy travelling to Europe and adjusting to the new time zone. Most have been training on the Dutch Papendal track, like Sam Willoughby (AUS) and David Herman (USA) for example. Marc Willers (NZL) reports on twitter that he is well rested after flying Business Class across the Atlantic.
