Join us for the kick off of the 2017 UCI World Cup season in Papendal with the Dan's Comp Preview Show. Your host Pete Dylewski talks to the riders as they're getting ready for round 1 of the new race format.
Dual Olympian Caroline Buchanan and rising star Kai Sakakibara have claimed the elite titles on a thrilling afternoon of finals at the 2017 BMX Australia National Championships at the Sleeman Sports Centre in Brisbane. Buchanan had the lead from start to finish in the women’s race and win from fellow two-time Olympian Lauren Reynolds and defending Australian champion Leanna Curtis.
The women’s race did not provide as much drama as the men’s event but the performance of Buchanan was just as strong. Both Buchanan and Reynolds missed last year’s national championships as they prepared for the Rio Olympic Games and came to Brisbane this week nervous to race in front of a home crowd, feeling the pressure to perform at the domestic level after missing a year.
When events can be watched live online it makes it tough to beat that in writing and with photos. But being there and smelling the atmosphere is always better than sitting at home behind a computer screen. You also get to experience the things going on behind the scenes. With the WTF Moments we'll bring you some of those. Expect more of these in the future here on FATBMX. Enjoy the first edition in the photo gallery. Read the captions.
