Today is the first day of FISE Chengdu, and the gray weather did not dampen the excitement. Unfortunately there was a bit of rain (we all know a FISE without rain is not a FISE), which meant the training was canceled but the qualifying competitions went ahead.
34 women from all over the world entered the UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup. Only 24 would qualify for the semi-finals, and the competition to qualify has become increasingly intense at every stop this season.
The Americans once again dominated the top 3 as Hannah Roberts and Perris Benagas are in first and second place. England's Charlotte Worthington came in 3rd position with 79.20 points.
The semi-finals will be spectacular, and we will have to wait until Saturday, November 2nd for the semi-finals to know who will qualify for the finals on Sunday, November 3rd.
