The 1st heat of the 1st round saw the winner cross the line in 1st. Due to deteriorating weather conditions the event was called off after the Elite Men had run Round 1. According to UCI rules the fastest rider in the Round takes top spot. Women didn't race.

Overall standings of the 2020 UCI BMX SX World Cup after three rounds. Tomorrow's racing will not start unitl the afternoon so be aware of that when you want to prepare to watch the live feed on FATBMX. And we're in Bathurst, Australia so mind the time difference. Connor Fields (USA) is doing well in the series followed by Anthony Dean (AUS) in 2nd and Carlos Ramirez (COL) in 3rd.
The day didn't start off all too bad in Bathurst with cloudy skies and moderate winds that didn't affect practice much. With the predicted weather conditions a decision was made to call it quits after Round 1 of Men and take the fastest times of each athlete to determine the results for Round 3 of the UCI BMX SX World Cup. Since Women had not raced yet, there will not be a result for Women for today's race in Bathurst. Better luck with the weather tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
Official communiqué: UCI BMX SUPERCROSS WORLD CUP - 2020
Friday kicked off early with a press conference which had Sam Willoughby, Lauren Reynolds, Laura Smulders, Kai Sakakibara and Mariana Pajon talk about BMX racing to the local press in Bathurts, a small city three hours West of Sydney, Australia. The predicted rain showed up every now and then during practice and the announced wind made things challenging from the start at the massive BMX track in Bathurst. But with nothing on the line during practice, the riders took it easy in order to stay in one piece to see whatever the decision is that will be made tomorrow morning when the sun comes up. That sun might decide to stay behind the clouds all day as once again rain is on the schedule and more frightening; wind. But today is today, and tomorrow is tomorrow so whenever it is possible to make a start, the racing will happen even though it might be just to get a result in. FATBMX is present so we will inform you about the activities in Bathurst so make sure to check in.
For the moment it doesn't make any sense to show who did well during practice. Both 8 and 5 meter hills were used but no one did a full lap today on the downhill track that has three straights with double lines. It is possible that all racing will take place from the 5 meter hill and will take all three "easy" lines to get some racing in tomorrow. The live feed (on FATBMX) will also keep you posted so tune in for the latest from the UCI BMX SX World Cup.
Australia is in need for some serious rain after the bush fires, but it doesn't help with the planned UCI BMX SX World Cup in Bathurst this weekend.
