NEWS: SECOND TO LAST STOP FOR THE ELITES
Bookmark and Share

Another strong weekend for the Australians, when the points matter most.

The second to last stop for the Elite/UCI series shared time with the Redline Cup Finals West. Held at Woodward Park in Fresno, CA it marked the first big race for the track since it made the transition from NBL to USA BMX. The facilities are amazing and well suited for such a big event.


On day one Sam Willoughby solidified his points lead with a big win in Elite Men, followed closely by the top tier of points holders, Connor Fields and Marc Willers. Sticking with the Australian theme, Caroline Buchanan swooped and easy win in Elite Women, helping her grab a fist full of much needed points leading up to the Grands in Tulsa this November.


Sunday looked as though it was going to unfold very much the same way for Australia, but a crash in Semi’s cut Willers and Willoughby from the mix before the men even reached the first turn. This left the door open to Connor Fields, the US long-shot at the title, to get a win under his belt, followed closely by fellow countrymen, Nic Long and Bubba Harris. A bobble during the main left Caroline Buchanan playing catch up where she has to settle for second place behind Dani George who was looking very fast. This left the third spot up for Lauren Whistler to grab.

Next stop, Florida for the Disney race and a last chance grab at points for the Elites.
