Fields & Buchanan both win Superfinal Time Trial twice in a row

Randaberg, Norway 13 April, 2012 – Caroline Buchanan (AUS) and Connor Fields (USA) again claimed victory in the Superfinal Time Trials during the second round of the 2012 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series in Randaberg, Norway. Less than a month ago this duo did exactly the same in Chula Vista California.

That is remarkable considering this a small, fast, custom-build, indoor track compared to the much bigger, downhill, Beijing Olympic replica track. In other words, these two riders are unstoppable in their current form and can win anywhere.
Tomorrow the racing continues. 64 men have qualified out of 121. 31 women, out of 41, will also forward into the finals in Randaberg Norway. Racing starts 4.00 pm (CEST) You can watch it live from 6.40 pm on
Connor Fields said that being happy makes the biggest difference.
“What is the secret? ….I go out there and do my best it pays off. Good preparation good coaching…. You know, I am happy right now, I am feeling good and that results in great form and me riding well. Tomorrow I am going to go out there and do my best. I want to win every race I am in.”

“I don’t think I have a certain kind of track that suits me. A lot of people have been saying that I am only good at Chula Vista. You know I just enjoy riding my bike that is all that counts.”

Caroline Buchanan, fastest girl on the track
“I still can’t believe I won. I mean Chula Vista was the first time trials I had ever won. I know that Time Trials is one of my specialties. Doing 4-cross and downhill helped me having smooth runs. And I managed to transfer that smoothness to BMX. But I still can’t believe I won another one. It is great to win this but I really want to transfer this experience in to racing. This means that you are the fastest girl on the track. But so much can happen in racing you have to put that al together. In Chula (Vista) I finished fifth. If I get top three tomorrow, I am stoked.”
