11 women from 5 countries but only 1 winner, the 2021 UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Champion is once again Hannah Roberts. The defending champion holds on to the title and takes home the Rainbow Jersey.
Everytime these ladies compete the bar is raised and the progression is evident, which is what makes the Women’s BMX Park Contests so exciting to watch. Today was no exception, as we saw all the girls pushing the limits with many new and improved tricks.
Hannah Roberts riding for team USA got the job done in her first run landing everything she wanted cleanly including an epic Backflip Barspin, a 360 Tuck No Hander and a signature big flair. The judges scored her an unbeatable 91.90 points.
In second place was Nikita Ducarroz, she has clearly been training super hard in the off season as she pulled out tricks we have never seen her try before, including a backflip no handed in her second run which unfortunately ended early due to a slipped bar. Her first run was enough to secure the silver, with the judges giving a score of 90.30 points.
In third place was Charlotte Worthington riding for team GB whose riding has excelled over the past few years. She landed both a back and front flip in her runs which were really well executed. She also landed a superb flair just after the buzzer. A score of 88.90 earned her the bronze medal.
