Women Elite Finals - 2016 UCI BMX WCHs Medellin Colombia

Monday, May 30, 2016



"Four new UCI World Champions from three different continents were crowned in Medellin, Colombia, on Sunday in front of a sold out crowd. It wasn't an easy road for Mariana Pajon (COL) to make it to the final in the Elite Women class and claim the UCI BMX World title. After finishing third in the Time Trials Super final on Saturday the local favourite took the holeshot in the final but had Alise Post (USA) right on her tail. In a last attempt to move closer to the front, Alise Post lost momentum on the last part of the track which allowed Australian Caroline Buchanan to take second position. Post salvaged third place after Pajon had given the hometown crowd what they came to see. Mariana's victory on the track that was named after her will go down in the history books."

Carley Young Update

Thursday, May 12, 2016
My life is always an adventure and I’m happy to share with you my plans for the month of May. Thanks to Magnolia BMX for hitting me up, and asking me to share some details of my life on the road for the next few weeks.

On Mother's Day I hopped on a plane and headed to Saginaw, MI for a week long event promoting bikes in schools.

Thanks to the PTA of St John's Lutheran in Midland Michigan I got to spend 5 school days with 150 students. All the students brought their bikes to school and I got to ride with them during school hours. Their school had kids from preschool to 8th grade. This week being my second year returning. Last year I was able to get about a dozen kids off training wheels, and taught some kindergarten kids how to ride the DK Nano pushbike.

I also taught them the importance of bike control, then I taught them how to do a front wheel lift as well as a bunny hop. We did some fun relay races, and on the last day I was there, they closed down an entire street and I made a track for everyone to ride all day. It was an awesome experience and I’m stoked to return this year.



DK donated 3 Nano pushbikes and Dan's Comp donated a complete MSC bike. I motivated kids to read for 30 minutes a day until the end of school and for every 2.5 hours they read, they received a raffle ticket to win a push bike or the compete MCS. The students were reading machines, and it was cool to see to see two kids go home with some sweet bikes, thanks to just using their brains. We have even more prizes this year, so I'm excited to see kids stoked about reading again.



Next stop Oldsmar Florida on Saturday May 14th,  I'll be hopping on a flight and heading south. I will be coaching for 5 days at Oldsmar BMX getting riders all the lessons they need for the SSA Championship as well as the UCI World Championship.



The schedule for the week is
Monday 5.16.16 Gate Starts / Pumping 4­6pm $25 per rider
Tuesday 5.17.16 Manualing / Jumping 4­6 $25 per rider
Wednesday 5.18.16 Turns / Pack Skills 4­6pm $25 per rider
Thursday 5.19.16 Training / Mental Game 4­6pm $25 per rider
Friday 5.20.16 Full Rider Clinic 5­8pm $30 per rider



Don't miss out on this coaching opportunity because my summer tour is limited this year, so if you are in the area, take advantage of these 5 days that I will be in town.

On Sunday May 22nd, I'm hopping on a plane to Medellin Colombia for the UCI World Championships. I will be competing for a world title over there in 17 and over women and 30 and over women's cruiser. I'm looking forward to racing for team USA. I have never been to Colombia so I'm excited to visit a new area and ride some new tracks. Team USA is huge this year, so  I'm super excited to see our riders treat it up over there.

After worlds, I will be returning back home to Pittsburgh just in time for the Pottstown National. I'm excited for what the month of May could bring my way.

After that I will have less than 2 weeks off, then off to Ohio Dreams Action Sports Camp for 2 weeks for Girls week.

I decided to take a break from summer tour this year so I apologize to those who were waiting for me to come out to their area this summer. I have decided to stay local to Pittsburgh and work on growing my local scene.

I have reclassified from Pro to Amateur and look forward to racing the USABMX nationals in July and go back to have fun racing my bike.

I can't thank all my sponsors and BMX family enough who made my passion for 2 wheels possible. They are the ones who make these trips possible. I’m thankful everyday that at age 31, I am happy, healthy and have a live full of adventures ahead of me.

I hope to see many of you on my journey this month!

Love always
Carley Young
