2014 London Provincials Vlog #13

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Just some footage of when I was in London for provincials. It was the track's first time running a race, so great job guys! Best of luck in the future. Kinda bummed that I dont have footage of my main, since my first and second moto was horse shit, in terms of performance. Oh well, more to improve on! This is blog number 13, so be sure to follow or subscribe and check out the previous videos.

A weekend of racing worth of updates

Monday, August 25, 2014

Looks like the Magnolia BMX racers had a really good racing weekend. Check out Amelia Walsh above on the Elite women's podium, taking home the win from Alberta. I on the other hand, took home 2nd place from provincials in London... I wish I had a novelty cheque. Friend to Magnolia BMX, Emma Caswell took first place home in her age class. That's all folks, have a great Monday!

Taiwan - Dubai Trip

Saturday, August 23, 2014


Taiwan - Dubai Trip from Camila Harambour on Vimeo.

One thing that amazes me most about BMX, is where it can take you. A few months ago, Camila was invited by Mini to spend sometime riding in Taiwan...

"Thanks to Mini Park and Mr Jang (CXA) I got the chance to do some demos for the Taipei Cycle Show in Taiwan. Unfortunately it rained every single day so even tho we still did a show for the people there, I didn't get to ride much. Anyway, I had so much fun visiting Taipei with Mini and eating all kind of different food :).
On my way back my flight stopped in Dubai so I decided to stay there for a day before coming back to Buenos Aires. I was by myself, only slept a couple hours in the plane and time difference was messing with my head, but it was all completely worth it!!!!!" - Camila

New RIDERS Android Update Lands Interactive Community for Extreme Sports
Social Community for Extreme Sports Expands Opportunities for Riders to Help Each Other Improve and Compete
St. Petersburg, Russia, August 1, 2014 — RIDERS, the social app for extreme sports, proudly announces its highly awaited Android update for extreme sports fans. They now can share their tricks with the global riders community, track activities by both the pros and their friends, and engage with potential sponsors.
RIDERS is a community that unites athletes who live by the mantra ‘extreme’. The application brings riders together, delivering access to the world’s largest BMX, skateboard, mountain bike, wakeboard, scooter, snowboard, longboard, inline skates and ski tricks database.
The database also contains detailed videos and step-by-step instructions from the pros on how to land the newest tricks and improve their own skills.
In the previous Android version, the RIDERS community could watch videos and track their own progress. This long-awaited update expands the interactive nature of the community. Now, amateur and professional riders can follow their peers from around the world, discuss tricks with them and teach each other. Riders can discuss their achievements, participate in the raitings, and leave comments.
With the launch in 2013, the RIDERS team filmed over 80 clips with professionals. Currently the video collection has accumulated to over 1,000 tricks and more than 100,000 videos uploaded by the RIDERS community.
“Our driving goal is to motivate people. We want to see them help each other and continuously improve. When we started riding, we soon realized that people needed a way to learn a new trick right on the spot. Previously we surfed the Web and forums, but this was wildly ineffective. Riders makes improving easy by giving you the largest database of tricks right in your pocket,” say Anatoly Chernyakov and Igor Debatur, RIDERS founders.
The RIDERS community is:
  • —  Afreedatabaseofover1,000videosofdetailedtricksandstep-by-step

Ask A Pro Series #1

As a rider starting out, or even one that's been at it for a while, we all have questions still! As part of the "Ask A Pro Series" we're going to answer your questions using our connections with the best of the best female riders out there. If you want your question featured for next month, head over to our contact page and ask away!

Paul Troy wants to know First question, to our Amelia Walsh. What weight training exercises are essential for power and speed in bmx racing? For all the young and upcoming bmx racing heros of tommorrow!

Amelia Walsh Professional BMX rider, supported by the Candian National BMX team

I believe that power is built in the gym and speed on the bike. You can spend 6 days a week lifting weights but its not going to make you fast on the track. In order to "go fast" you have to transfer your power into the pedals which is done through various sprinting programs.

My primary lifts in the gym are Olympic Lifts ( cleans/snatch). I wouldn't suggest youtubing/googling how to do these if your going to start or are wanting to try them. Get someone that knows what there doing to coach you. This is pretty advanced though (14 years old +) .

For the younger generation I would suggest getting them a park bike and taking them to dirt jumps, get them comfortable jumping. Your kid can be the strongest in his/her age group but their technical skills will win them races.

If you are absolutely keen on starting your child on the strength training part. Start with body weight plyometrics and flat ground sprints on flat pedals.

Jessica Leigh wants to know Do the pros get nervous before competing and what are some rituals that the big pros do to calm the butterflies?



Peta Shephard Australian BMX rider, supported by Magnolia BMX, Primary Treads and Colony BMX

Yup (I) always get nervous.  Usually (I) just tell myself to relax and try to just picture the runs or tricks I wanna get done. Also (I) practice and flow around to try and feel the best on my bike.

Perris Benegas American BMX Rider, supported by Magnolia BMX

Well, the one competition I did enter was the 2014 Toronto BMX Jam. I was extremely nervous before each run, but then I remembered I was there to have fun. At that point, I didn't really look at it as a competition anymore, I looked at is as just another day of riding my bike.

That's it for August's Ask A Pro Series, if you want your questions featured for September head over to our contact page and ask away!
