17 of the world’s best female BMX riders took to the park today to fight for 1 of the 12 places in tomorrow's final.
Once again Team USA athlete Hannah Roberts came out on top. Her shoulder must be feeling better as she landed trick after trick during her runs, including a lovely tailwhip over the spine. Top place in qualifying means she will ride last in tomorrow's final.
Nikita Ducarroz is smashing this contest season and has been a regular on podiums across Europe. Her level seems to improve at every contest she rides in and her runs are creative, consistent and full of big crowd pleasing tricks. She was today’s second place qualifier.
In third place another Team USA rider, Perris Benegas. Perris is known for big air and huge transfers and her riding today showcased it all. She missed out on FISE Montpellier so it is a pleasure to have her back with us for this one, look forward to seeing what she has in store for us tomorrow.
Special shout out to Lizsurly and Laury who unfortunately took bad falls in training and were unable to compete in the qualifying. Wishing you both a speedy recovery.
JOIN US LIVE TOMORROW FOR THE FINAL!
