A bit of bad news from the first World Cup over in Papendal, Holland - Brooke Crain crashed out during Saturday’s race resulting in a laceration to her liver and a broken pinky.  Still, she’s in good spirits and resting up with plans to head back home in the next few days to continue her recovery.

As we get ready for the first round of the World Cup of the year in Papendal, Holland, we’ve got the word that Nic Long had to pull out of the weekend’s racing due to a minor injury. Nic gave it a go during Friday’s practice but decided to pull the plug and rest up and hopefully can be back for next weekend’s round 2 in Zolder, Belgium. After a solid podium last weekend in Atlanta, let’s hope Nic can get back on the gate next week especially as he’s coming back into some good form for the summer.

Atlanta Report - Haro US Junior Development Team

The US Junior Development Team headed back East this weekend to Atlanta for the USA BMX Dixieland Nationals, which were held in Cobb Country, Powder Springs, GA. Payton Ridenour, Noah Ramos and Kamren Larsen all made the trip out and were looking to continue building on an already good start to the year, as we move into the summer part of the season with the World Championships in July – which is the main goal for the season.

Noah was racing 15 x and Kamren 17-18 x, both were riding well during Saturday’s race but both crashed out in the same place in the semi-finals while in qualifying positions. Just bad luck.

Both came back stronger Sunday with Noah placing 5th in his final, and Kamren fighting a bad start in his final to a 2nd place with a real gutsy ride and a good finish to the weekend.

Payton Ridenour was on it all weekend long. Her time training in Chula Vista and working with Team Coach, Arielle Martin, is really starting to show great benefits to her. Payton came from 2nd place to make the move on the leader on day one making the pass and taking the win. She dominated Sunday, taking the win from lane 8 start to finish.

We also wanted to note and thank John Buultjens from Haro, who came out for the weekend to check out the action and spend some time with the team to get to know everyone. Thank you, John.

Next up for the Team – Nashville, Tennessee later this month.

Good weekend over in Atlanta, Georgia for both Brooke Crain & Nic Long at the Dixieland Nationals at the Cobb Country BMX facility.
Nic had a good weekend racing putting himself in the main event both days and a nice podium on Saturday behind Joris Daudet & Connor Fields. A bad gate on Sunday in the main event cost him another shot at the podium but still a solid weekend racing for Nic.
Brooke continued her great year with wins both days and more good points in the bag for the year-end title chase.
Both Nic & Brooke head to Europe now for the start of the UCI SX World Cup, keep an eye on all our Social Media channels for updates on the weekend with the team.
Also, a big thank you to our guy, John Buultjens, who flew out to Atlanta to catch up with the Team and show his support.

As we head over to Texas this coming weekend for the Lonestar Nationals, it’s good to see Haro’s, Brooke Crain on top in the National Points chase with a good lead. It’s sure a long season but she’s gaining great confidence with an exceptional start to the year.

Nic Long definitely likes to keep busy on a weekend off.  He headed out to Austin, Texas for a Pre-National Camp weekend with his dad heading into next weekend’s Lone Star Nationals. Nic heads back to Cali to finish his prep before he hits the road back to Texas, then Atlanta, before heading out to Europe for the start of the World Cup series.

Check out uci.ch with an article on Haro’s Japanese Olympian, Yoshi Nagasako who is now racing Velodrome alongside BMX with the goal of making it to Tokyo for the 2020 Olympic Games in both disciplines.
A lot of former BMX riders over the years have made the transition to track including; Chris Hoy, Jamie Staff, Anna Mears and Ryan Bailey among a few others and won big on the boards but no one to- ate has raced the same Olympics in both disciplines. Let’s see if Yoshi can pull it off.
