Round #5 of the UCI BMX World Cup took Joris Daudet to Sakarya, Turkey for the first time. Joris was looking to continue his Podium finishes after the last rounds in Colombia, and on Day 1, he did just that. Taking the early lead, Joris had a good back and forth battle with Simon Marquart all the way to the finish line, where Simon would edge out Joris for the win on Day 1
After a few big weeks of racing with results less that what Joris expected, he regrouped and headed off to Tom Sawyer EP park for the USA BMX Derby City Nationals with a ready too win attitude. Derby City is one of Joris favorite tracks and from the start of things on Friday, it showed in his riding. Joris was on point lap after lap in Louisville and on Friday night, he finished the day off with a win in the main event
Joris Daudet made the journey to South Park, Pennsylvania for the traditional 4th of July weekend National event at one of the most famous tracks in USA BMX history. This weekends Stars and Stripes National event had drawn a large collection of Pro riders, as this would be the last large National event in the USA before the Olympics, so you had some riders that are tuning up before the big show and some who did not qualify, going for the gold in PA.
