This Thanksgiving, Joris Daudet has plenty to be thankful for - He recently found out he is going to be a Dad. Just days later, he made USA BMX History. as he has now won his 3rd #1 Elite Mens title in just 4 years. Joris had an incredible season, capping it off by wining both the Friday Race of Champions Main event in Tulsa, and then also winning the USA BMX Grand Nationals Elite Mens main event! Joris caps off his most successful season on the USA BMX Pro Tour, just ahead of teammate Connor Fields, who wrapped up the year as the #2 overall Elite Mens Pro.
Connor had an incredible 2nd half of the season, after a crash early on in the season kept him off track and out of the top 3 results, until mid season, and then he tuned it up with just a few races left, to climb from the the bottom of the top 10 pros to finish up 2nd overall. What an incredible season for both Riders, but Joris was the years standout, and by far the fastest Pro in Tulsa this year!
Chase BMX wants to thank all of the team partners and supporters for another great season, and
USA BMX Sunshine State Nationals – Sarasota, Florida; Conor Fields takes the the Day 1 win and Joris Daudet wins on Day 2! The USA BMX Pro Series season is quickly coming to a exciting end of the year, with just 2 stops left, but Sarasota Florida would give the fans some great racing action. Held on the Supercross style BMX track, Sarasota has a lot of great history in the sport of BMX and the 2018 Sunshine State nationals would showcase one of the best BMX tracks in the USA and make for some incredible Pro racing. Joris Daudet and Connor Fields both travels to Florida with different agenda. Joris, currently hold the USA BMX Pro title lead and was looking to extend his points gap and Conor Fields has had an up and down season, with an injury early had all about put him out of repeating as the USA BMX Champion, but he finally has felt 100% over the past month and was looking for redemption in the highest category in BMX racing.
