Today 24 of the best riders on earth gathered at the Sud de France Area for the chance to get their place in Monday's Final, where they will compete to become the 2021 UCI BMX Freestyle World Champion.
The Format was 4 heats of 6 riders with each rider getting 2 runs of 60” and their best run counting. It was a fully international line up with riders from all over the world taking part. The level was insane and in the end a score of over 83 points was required to get one of the 12 spots in Monday’s final.
Daniel Sandoval came out on top with a perfect first run that earned him an absolutely huge score of 94.06. It was perhaps the clean execution and variety of his run that impressed the judges as he produced tricks no one else was trying.
In second place was yesterday's top qualifier Nick Bruce who produced another big performance that was clean and consistent. Stand out tricks included a massive 540 flair in a run that earned him a score of 92.64.
In 3rd place was Logan “the machine” Martin with yet another flawless performance full of big tricks that scored 91.94. He landed a 720 double barspin which seemed effortless to him and a big 1080.
Special shout out to Jaie Tooey for landing his signature Nothing Front Bike Flip which the crowd loved. Hope to see him bring that one back out in the finals.
