Connor Fields continues his string of incredible race results, with 2- 3rd place finishes at the USA BMX Disney Cup 3 day race event.
The last regular weekend of USA BMX racing has had a tradition for the past 7 years of riders converging to Florida to attend the USA BMX Disney Cup event. The 3-day national event has become one of the best events on the USA BMX circuit and riders from around the Globe attend to try to win the overall Disney Cup in each class at the event.
For the Elite riders, this was the last chance at a regular national event to obtain points and be in position to better their year long overall ranking in USA BMX. Connor Fields had concentrated so much of the World Cups and getting ready for the Olympics this season, he would need to finish close to the top of the podium at all the remaining events after the Olympics to have a shot at top 3 overall in the USA BMX 2012 overall rankings. Well Connor has done just that. He kicked things off with 3 great finishes in Louisville, 2nd, 3rd, 3rd. Then at the USA BMX RLC West Championships, he placed 2nd & 1st. Coming into Disney, Connor was looking for more strong results to help put him in the top 3 in the Elite Men’s ABA standings.
Well, Connor did just that, with 2-3rd place Elite Men’s finishes on Saturday & Sunday. This gives him 8 Podium finishes in the USA BMX tour and 1-4th.
Connor looks forward now to the USA BMX Grands, where he will look to get his 10th score for the year at the Race of Champions on Friday night and then battle it out with the Worlds fastest Pros at the USA BMX Grand Nationals, the greatest race on Earth!
Connor has had a great year and he is looking to have a chance for a top 3 year end result at the USA BMX Grand Nationals.
