The BMX Park Amateur finals were ruled by a young Japanese rider who goes by the name of Rimu Nakamura. After checking the Junior class Rimu decided to enter the Amateur class and qualified in first place. During finals the rider from Japan showed tricks that wouldn't look bad in the pro class including tailwhips to barspins over the jump box and a killer no-hander to barspin over the tricky volcano. To finish off his second run he climbed on top of the VIP wall to bomb drop into the quarterpipe far below. First place was his. Australian Alec Danelutti flair whipped to second and Pietras Bartek (CHI) got third.
Coleborn tricks himself to the top of the list during qualification. World Cup rivals Martin and Dhers qualify in 2nd and 3rd in today's semi final. After the Juniors and Amateur BMX riders were finished on the Park course, the Pro riders who made it to the 24-deep semi final field got on the course in Chengdu to battle for a top 12 spot that would shoot them into the final of the last stop of the 2016 UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup. Alex Coleborn (GBR) was on top form and delivered with big moves and tech tricks in both his runs. The number of risky tricks he puts into his runs is amazing and the Brit stayed on both times making him the top qualifier in Chengdu. All focus though was on Daniel Dhers (VEN) and Logan Martin (AUS). The two are so close in the overall standings that whoever finishes in front of the other will win the 2016 overall World Cup title. Making mistakes is not an option for the both of them and by finishing second (Logan) and third (Daniel) it shows that the two are in great shape and ready for Sunday's final event.
Australian Brandon Loupos used his 540-flair and cashroll to secure
The BMX Park community made the trek to Chengdu-China for the last stop of the UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup. With the year-end titles up for grabs this weekend and the title hunt for the Men being as close as possible, the weekend will go down in history no matter which way you take it. Because of his top-5 finish in Edmonton, Canada, Logan Martin was automatically pre-qualified for the semi-finals. His rival Daniel Dhers however had to ride the open qualifier to make it to Saturday's semi-final. Dhers showed he's a real pro by professionally taking one of the 19 transfer spots to keep the excitement alive, at least for an extra day. Whoever finishes in front of the other will win the 2016 UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup title. It's either going to be Daniel Dhers (VEN) or Australian Logan Martin, that's for sure.
Hannah Roberts (USA) is on a different level in the Women class. In qualification she showed why she's the leader of the UCI BMX Freestyle World Cup by doing flairs, barspins over the jump box,
