As a Dutchman looking at the final results from Shepparton you won't catch me saying: "It ain't much if it ain't Dutch." I would say that it has been a while that no rider from the Netherlands made it to a UCI BMX SX World Cup final in Men or Women. Even Laura Smulders and Niek Kimmann did not go through. That doesn't mean that the racing in the finals wasn't good. It was just missing some of my favourite riders. See who did what in the race results below and watch the videos when they are finished. Racing in the Olympic year gets serious.
The rider with the Red Numberplate is the leader of the UCI BMX SX World Cup. There are two plates in total. One for Women. One for Men. After the first two rounds of the UCI BMX SX World Cup Connor Fields and Alise Willoughby will be bringing the leader plates to Bathurst for UCI BMX SX World Cup rounds 3 and 4 next weekend 8 - 9 February 2020. The racing will continue in the 10-round series but getting the lead and running that plate certainly means something. Congrats to the American duo on running the series.

2019 was without question a banger for Jordan Hango, so it's only fitting to start 2020 off with a fresh dose of footage from Hango ripping his local streets of Vancouver. Nothing but casual madness to be found...click play and see for yourself.
