It's windy and it's raining, but the show must go on. You're on that 8 meter high starting hill with 7 nervous girls next to you. You know you need to jump that first jump to make a chance to transfer to the next round. Things can get sketchy sometimes that's why it's good to pad up. Natalia Suvorova explains her racing gear situation.

In 2018 Sae Hatakeyama will ride the Elite class for the first time in her BMX racing career. She has chosen #85 as her career number so that number will be printed on the back of her jerseys when she hits the supercross tracks. Being on the UCI program under the wings of Liam Phillips don't be surprised to see her make some finals in 2018. The SX track in Aigle is her home spot now. Daily sessions there will surely help her progress.
