It's been another busy week at USA BMX HQ - as we could barely walk down the entry hall full of Race for Life jackets and shirts. For all of those USA BMX members who participated in this years' RFL series and met the requirements for bringing in donations to earn a prize - your RFL swag is now on its way to you!
Now with the 2012 Olympics in our rearview mirror, we'll have to wait another 4 years to experience the thrill of the racing, the agony of defeat ... and all of the serious discussion about each country's BMX uniforms. Which ones did you like the best?
Police escort. Double decker bus. Big and loud crowd. Triumphant speeches.
Those things are just some of the elements of what it's like returning to your hometown after winning an Olympic gold medal - for the second time. Check out this video of Maris Strombergs triumphant return.
Day three of BMX competition at the BMX Track in London’s Olympic Park began with three semifinal runs to determine the top eight athletes who would compete in a winner-take-all final race. Points equaling a rider’s finishing position were handed out after each run. The four riders with the lowest point totals in each of two heats moved on to the final.
BMX racing continued at the 2012 Olympic Games, with the men’s quarterfinals on Thursday. Once the day had wrapped up, two of three American competitors qualified to move on to Friday’s semifinal round. Connor Fields (Henderson, Nev./Chase BMX) and David Herman (Wheat Ridge, Colo./Free Agent-Rockstar) will advance to Friday’s round of 16, while Nic Long (Lakeside, Calif./Haro Bikes) was eliminated in the quarterfinals by a single point.
It's quite an adventure here in London. Everywhere you go is packed with people from all around the World; which is easy to tell by their clothing. It does seem like an over abundance of orange clothing from all of the Dutchies, and of course - there is plenty of British spirit shown with Union Jack face paint and UK-flag clothing that would make Joe Elliott from Def Leppard proud.
