It's time for the final rounds at the French Cycling Centre. It's the Main Event from Round 6 of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup Tour. Next up we're back to a favourite haunt and home of the 2017 World Championships; Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Day1 I didn't race good but I turned 180 on day2. It's been 5years since my first final in Papendal and this was my 2nd final and 8th place. I take this one and onto next one. Hopefully this is a point to through and see you in Paris next one!
The 2018 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup finals would crown the Elite Men and Women's champions after the 7 month World tour would wrap up in Santiago del Estero, Argentina. Niek Kimmann, Joris Daudet, and Sylvain Andre were all in the title hunt on the Mens side. For Elite Woman, Laura Smulders held a firm lead in points over Saya Sakaibara, and Judy Baauw, but it would come down to the last weekend to crown the champions.
With one more UCI BMX SX World Cup round to go in Santiago del Estero the World Cup ranking looks like this (below). In fact Laura Smulders has gained such a lead that she will get crowned UCI World Cup champion for the third year in a row today after the final race is over. In the Men class Niek Kimmann is in a good position as he is currently leading and basically needs to score more than 6 points if Joris Daudet wins. Ask Brian Foster if you think the race for the 2018 Overall is already over, he can explain that anything can happen in BMX. The race coverage can be watched live here on FATBMX. We advise you to do so.
