Round #3 and #4 of the 2018 USA BMX Pro Series tour headed to the East Coast this weekend to one of USA BMX’s premiere BMX Racing faculties, Oldsmar BMX. The Track features a Supercross 8 meter hill for the Elite riders, as well as an traditional 5 meter hill. The silky smooth track and perfectly landscaped faculty make it a pleasure to sit and enjoy some of the worlds top BMX riders compete on one of the best tracks in the sport!
Day 1- With 51 Elite riders on hand, the first round of the 2018 USA BMX SX races would be a tough one for the riders on site. The current USA BMX #1 Pro, Connor Fields failed to make his way into the main event, but Joris Daudet made it in. Joris would start from the middle of the gate, and was edged out just outside of the lead going into turn #1, but powered his way info the lead down the 2nd straightaway and never looked back. Joris went on to take his 2nd win of the season, out of 3 races so far…
Day 2- Again, the worlds fastest racers took to the big hill and it was an all out battle to make their way into the finals. On Saturday afternoon, it was both riders in the main event. Connor won his semi final, and when the main event he kept his winning ways going, as he not only took the hole shot, but took the lead and pulled away from the pack, on his way to a a huge win on Day 2. Connor takes his first win of 2018 and looks to be on great form, as Sunday will be the USA Cycling National Championships. – Report to follow –
