Things got exciting in what seems to be the last Time Trials event at a UCI BMX SX World Cup. Put money on the line and riders will fight harder to set the fastest time on the track. It wasn't just bragging rights, heat selection and lane-pick in Sarasota, $1000,= USD went to the winners in both the Men and Women category.

Sylvain André from France grabbed the hot seat early on and was waiting to see if someone could beat his time. Nyhaug came closest with a difference of 0.036s. Luckily Dave van der Burg (NED) was fast too so his song could be stopped as soon as he crossed the finishline to get third. ;-).
In the Women class the lead changed multiple times. Brooke Crain (USA) was the last one in the seat when Holland's Laura Smulders snapped out of the gate on her own to set the fastest
