BUCHANAN Next Gen - Girls BMX Racing Team

I gotta hand it to Buchanan, she's really putting a lot of effort into her all girls BMX racing team. Check out this behind the scenes footage of her and the Next Gen photoshoot.

"In a global first, Caroline Buchanan, the current world number one BMX rider created a young women’s team. The Buchanan Next Gen team currently consists of three Australian BMX riders.
Mikayla Rose (ACT) is the eldest at 14 has her sights set on the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. From western Sydney (NSW) is Paige Harding at just 11 years of age. Harding claimed fifth place at the 2014 World Championships and aims to improve on that this year in Belgium in July. The youngest and newest member to the team is 8 yr old Tayla Robertson from Shepparton (VIC). Robertson is a current national champion in her age group and is aiming for a podium at this year’s world championship.

The Next Gen team will all head to the upcoming BMX World Championships in Belgium in July. Last year team members Rose and Harding each finished in the top 10.

The Buchanan Next Gen team initiative is mentored by two time BMX World Champion and current winner of the BMX World Cup series. Buchanan also has three Mountain Bike World titles. Buchanan is aiming to compete in the Rio De Janeiro Olympics in 2016.
New sponsors supporting the program, Jayco and On The Go have made it possible to expand the team and continue the initiative."

News is blowing up in New Zealand now with Nitro Circus in town, with eyes on Jolene Van Vugt who is reportedly planning to land the first BMX double backflip by a women (on the Gigant-A-Ramp).

In the video from the article, Pastrana reports that there has only been 3 women in the world to ever backflip, I'm sure this was out of context, and in reference to the Gigant-A-Ramp, as I can name a dozen who can. reports, "Jolene Van Vugt would not talk to media ahead of the world record attempt. Organizers say she's trying to remain focused and calm."

Review: Gate 8 Season 2 by Corrinne Walder

Monday, January 19, 2015
When I was younger, I bought a lot of BMX vids, as many of you probably did too. It didn't really matter who was in the latest issue, or what was in the content --I bought it because it was the next issue, I needed inspiration, and also because quality online BMX edits were much more rare back then.

With that said, my first DVD in years was recently purchased from Corinne Walder, and it's called Gate 8.

As you might already know, a lot of her work is already online, but I felt like her work was more than just a video with riding in it -- her projects are like work of art. They are short biographies, intense, emotional, and I just felt like I needed something tangible in my hands. With that said, I really love her work.

Racing is racing, someone get's from point A to B, and some don't get there at all - with Corrinne's work, you get a deeper connection to what's going on with the rider, how they were brought up, and even experience the highs and lows through her work. 

Some of my favorite edits included the Sam Willoughby, Laura Smulders and Mariana Pajon bios, along with the Redbull Thailand Trip, staring Amanda Carr and Shanaze Reade. That specific edit was based around the Thailand racing scene - which I don't mean to sound ignorant, but I didn't realize how much the scene was booming there - and in the end left me putting "Race in Thailand" on my life bucket list. Most importantly, there was this one trailer that left me near tears, the Sam Willoughby and Alise Post documentary -  I can't wait to see the final product when it comes out this year. 

I highly recommend getting this DVD, sure you can watch it online, but having the Grand Canyon on your desktop, isn't the same as seeing it in person. Corrine Walder's Gate 8 Season 2, is available on Ebay.

Aside from this being some footage from a cool contest, I wouldn't post it unless there was a lady in the edit. Who do I spy, a familiar lady biker flipping a box? I know who it is, but can you spot her out?
