We're out here in Turkey, a new stop on the UCI BMX SX World Cup circuit. It's always nice to go to new places but it also brings new challenges. New track, new hotel, new people, translation issues, drinking issues, stray dogs and cats, mobile camper toilets, the list is long and the adventure is on.
Four UCI BMX World Cup rounds are on the program for the next two weekends. Rounds 5&6 now, Rounds 7&8 next weekend (30/31 October) and the title chase is wide open. Basically half of the season will be taken care of in 10 days so if you are in shape now and can put it together, chances are you're up there at the end of the road.
The leader plates are in the hands of Arthur Pilard (Elite Men), Mariana Pajon (Elite Women), Asuma Nakai (U23 Men) and also Thalya Burford (U23 Women) so they carry the best papers at the moment but things can change quickly.
For those not wanting to miss anything, we've got the live feed on FATBMX.com so tune in and follow the racing. We'll keep you posted on ourd FATBMX social media channels and here also on the website as you're used from us. It's BMX after all.
