Round 7 of the UCI BMX SX World Cup took place in SDE and brought close racing to the track with the best crowd in BMX Racing. Local hero Gonzalo Molina just missed out on a victory in a final that must have had the closest finish between riders ever. Within 0.65 of a second all 8 riders crossed the finish line. Holland's Laura Smulders stayed on the bike all day and turned it up a bit in the final enough to grab her first win in Santiago del Estero. More racing on Sunday as the World Cup season concludes in SDE with final round 8.

The past year kept Bert and myself busy filming for a DVD, for an online trick contest and a documentary. Throughout this time there were many goals to achieve and there have been set backs to all the endeavors, but we battled them head on through. Here is something that represents the word perseverance in a sense of even through the tough times, the busy times, through a number set backs, Bert has pushed through and kept creating more.
It's September and that means we're off to South American for the final stop on the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup Series. We kick off in Santiago del Estero in Argentina with Round 7; the penultimate round on the 2018 tour.
I was browsing online and stumbled across a Sidewalk Sessions skate video with the word 'Devon' in the title... being from Devon myself (in the South West corner of England), I had to find out where exactly Sidewalk had been and what this newly discovered 'Farm Bowl' actually was.
Don’t let the title fool you – Sunday loves Germany. We met the raddest people, rode the sickest spots, and went 250 KPH on the Autobahn…. Really I don’t think we could have picked a better destination for our ODYSSEY vs SUNDAY victory trip and DIG BMX TERRITORIES #3.
