My 2017. The BMX girls had a killer year in 2017. Nikita Ducarroz is one of the more professional riders with a strong list of sponsors backing her up. Although Nikita lives in the USA and grew up there, she has chosen to represent Switzerland on her way to the qualifying process for the first Olympic Games that BMX Park is a part of. Read below what Nikita has to say about 2017.
Name: Nikita Ducarroz Hometown: Glen Ellen, California Sponsors: Mongoose, Joby, G-Form, Extreme, Black&Decker
Do you remember the first BMX event you went to this year and how did it go? Nikita Ducarroz: First event was FISE Montpellier. It was my first big overseas event and actually the only stop this year where I stomped my run start to finish with the 540. There were so many amazing riders there that when I made podium, it was a huge accomplishment!
How many weekends/days were you away from home and at a BMX jam/contest or on tour? Nikita Ducarroz: It felt like I was never home this year between BMX and family trips, but it was only about 11 weekends out of the year that I was at BMX contests. About 80 days.
What was the best event you went to this year that gets your vote?
