American Brooke Crain (Visalia, Calif./Haro Bicycles) showed her consistency by riding to a second-place finish for the second consecutive year at round one of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup on Saturday in Manchester, England. Starting from gate 2 in the final next to defending world champion Caroline Buchanan of Australia, the 21-year-old Crain stayed on Buchanan's wheel throughout the race but was unable to find a way to move past the rainbow jersey. Venezuela's Stefany Hernandez followed Crain across the line to claim third place.

Crain's American teammates Dani George (Palmdale, Calif.) and Felicia Stancil (Lake Villa, IL/Factory GT Bicycles) did not advance past the semifinal round and finished 13th and 15th, respectively.

It felt great to race again after our winter break! My results could be better, but I’m really happy about the way I rode on my bike… Two weeks ago the European season kicked of in Zolder, Belgium. They transformed the normal BMX track to a big SX track, because the World Champs will be there in 2015… Together with my team I went to Zolder for a training session before this race. Non of us liked the track, because most jumps were way to big and not really smooth. We told the club and track builder, so they made some changes before round 1&2 of the

When I looked up how far the Zolder track was, the routemapper said 71.5 kilometers. One hour and five minutes. So I made plans to go to Belgium to watch the first big European outdoor race of 2014. Then Paul called and said he was thinking of going as well and he came over to pick up Philip and myself. One hour later we were at the former F1 track which had been invaded by 1400 BMX racers and their parents plus fans. With one round happening on Saturday and one on Sunday it was BMX racing all day long. We checked the
