Connor Fields wins Day 1 & Joris Daudet wins Day 2 of the USA BMX Carolina Nationals in Rock Hill
Stop #3 of the 2021 USA BMX Pro series took us to one of the most incredible BMX tracks in the world, Rock Hill, South Carolina. Rock Hill has hosted many premier events in the past, including the UCI BMX World Championships, UCI BMX SX World Cups, and multiple USA BMX National events, but the event here in Rock Hill in 2021 is something special. With reports of the record turnouts for competitors, this could be the single largest BMX National in USA BMX History! And on Sunday, the Elite Pro riders will compete for the USA National Championships, making this an even bigger event for the Pros.
32 of the top Pro riders from around the world lined up in Rock Hill to race this perfectly groomed Supercross style track and shoe the packed house of fans what full speed bar to bar Pro racing was all about. and after Fridays racing, no one was left unsatisfied. Connor and Joris had headed out toe Rock Hill before the event to train in the SX track for upcoming events, as well as have the track dialed in come this race weekend. Watching the qualifying races, it seemed like a great decision for both, as they were out front of each of their races, leading into the main event. When the gate dropped on Fridays Pro main event, it was Connor with the holeshot and unfortunate for Joris a small mistake cost him big, as he was stuck in the back of the pack. Connor would go on to take the win with a flawless lap and Joris would ride his way to a 7th for the day.
Heres Day 1’s Main event
On Saturday, Connor and Joris once again rode strong all day and made their way into the main event. This time, it would be Joris who would take the early lead and never look back, taking his 4th win of the 2021 USA BMX Pro season. Connor Fields just missed out on the podium, as he finished in 4th for the day.
