The kickoff for the 2019 USA BMX Pro Series season took place on one of the most famous tracks in USA BMX’s longed history, Black Mountain BMX in Phoenix, AZ. Joris Daudet, the 2018 USA BMX #1 Pro has had some time off since wining the #1 title for the 3rd time black in November. But to watch him race this weekend in Phoenix, you would have thought he never took any break. Things kicked off for Joris on Friday afternoon, as he started the 2019 season off with some fast last, making his way into the main event. Joris was ready to continue his wining ways from 2018, as he lined up for the first main event if 2019. When the gate dropped, Joris put the power down and took the hole shot into turn #1. From there, he opened up the lead and never looked back, on his way to win #1 for the season.

The start of the 2017 USA BMX Pro season was a much anticipated event – Many riders had a long 2016 season and took some time off after the Olympics and USA BMX Finals. The 2016 USA BMX #1 Pro Joris Daudet and 2016 Olympic Champion Connor Fields both have been getting ready for the new season with training, while Romain Mahieu has done a few events leading up to the season kickoff in Phoenix, AZ. The team all met up in the desert to see how the off season training went, and on Day 1, the day was smooth for the riders. Both Joris and Conor made their way into the main event, with Romain just missing out in the Semi. When the Gate dropped Conor looked to have a good start from the inside, but a elbow and a millisecond of hesitation cost him going into turn number one. Joris was there to capitalize as he was stuck mid pack but navigated his way towards the front. Joris rode a strong lap and would finish up 3rd, while Connor was held back to 8th for the day.
