The team USA athlete does it once again!
There were 12 riders who qualified for today’s final and each had 2 runs of 1 minute to impress the judges with the best run counting. Hannah only needed 1 run to take the win, with a performance that had the commentators calling her a “trick machine.”
Hannah is no stranger to taking the top spot on the podium, she won every event she entered in 2019. Today she landed the most difficult tricks with ease including a 360 no hander and a signature flair. She had a message for all the girls out there who might want to try BMX “you can do amazing things on a bike, so pick one up” sound advice right there.
In second place was another Team USA athlete, Perris Benegas. Her flow and speed around the course was super impressive and she produced some bangers as well including a lovely suicide no hander.
In third place Olympic Gold Medalist Charlotte Worthington. You never know what she will do in her runs as she has such a big bag of tricks to reach into. She fell on her first run but seemed to use that as motivation for her second, as she came back swinging. The crowd loved her frontflip over the box, she was the only girl to attempt that trick.
We have to mention Nikita Ducarroz in 4th place. She went full send in her second run and was really unlucky to miss out on a podium spot. Alway a pleasure to see pull one of her 540s.
The fact we had 3 girls all scoring over 93.00 points shows the level and progression of the ladies. We can't wait to see what they have in store for us at the next stop of the UCI BMX FREESTYLE WORLD CUP in Australia.
