Only for the 2nd time around, the women will race on the big 8 meter high start ramp and negotiating a BMX Supercross track. Being one of the most important events to score valuable points towards the qualification for the Olympic Games, the finals will see a record number of participants with over 110 Men and 40 Women from 20 countries.
In Elite Men, Robert de Wilde (NED) sits fairly comfortable in the overall lead in the 2007 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup. “Afro-Bob” has showed great consistency with three 2nd place finishes. Could he grab his first win and the overall title? Runner-up in the overall ranking, Mike Day (USA) has a potential chance taking it away from De Wilde if he wins and De Wilde finishes worse than 8th in the semi-finals. Only time will tell.
With the World Champion and overall BMX Supercross World Cup leader, Shanaze Reade (GBR) opting to sit out the final round, the win and the overall title is anyone’s to win. Ann-Caroline Chausson (FRA) has a great opportunity (currently in 2nd place), racing in front of the home-crowd.
