UCI BMX FREESTYLE PARK SEMI-FINAL - WOMEN
24 women were competing today to try and secure a place in the final tomorrow. It was an international affair as riders representing 15 different countries took part. Despite the global presence, it was an all USA top 2 here today. Yesterday’s top place qualifier Hannah Roberts did it again. She finished top with a score of 90.6pts, after completing a first run that was packed with tricks. In 2nd was Hannah’s USA team mate and friend Perris Benegas, who will be looking to move up a spot in tomorrow’s final. In 3rd place was team GB rider Charlotte Worthington who scored 81.4pts
Special mention for Ellie Chew from New Zealand, who just missed out on a place in the final tomorrow. She landed a backflip over the spine which the crowd loved.
