Pete Dylweski interviews current Olympics Gold Medallist Connor Fields @connorfields11 about how he's dealing with the change of training, his best run (which is a semi final) and his favourite riders; past and present.
Overall standings of the 2020 UCI BMX SX World Cup after three rounds. Tomorrow's racing will not start unitl the afternoon so be aware of that when you want to prepare to watch the live feed on FATBMX. And we're in Bathurst, Australia so mind the time difference. Connor Fields (USA) is doing well in the series followed by Anthony Dean (AUS) in 2nd and Carlos Ramirez (COL) in 3rd.
The rider with the Red Numberplate is the leader of the UCI BMX SX World Cup. There are two plates in total. One for Women. One for Men. After the first two rounds of the UCI BMX SX World Cup Connor Fields and Alise Willoughby will be bringing the leader plates to Bathurst for UCI BMX SX World Cup rounds 3 and 4 next weekend 8 - 9 February 2020. The racing will continue in the 10-round series but getting the lead and running that plate certainly means something. Congrats to the American duo on running the series.

Connor Fields headed down to Santiago Del Estero for the final 2 rounds of the 2019 UCI BMX World Cup SX series. With Connor being injured in the beginning of the season and missing 3 of the 5 stops, the overall title was out of each for him, but landing back on the podium at one of his favorite events of the season was the main goal. With Joris Daudet still sidelined from his crash from the UCI BMX World Championships, Connor would be the loner Factory rider to attend, but many other supported Chase Athletes were also in attendance for the World Cup Finals.
On Day 1, Connor once again rode out front almost the entire day of qualifying and made his way into the main event. A stacked main event isn’t something that Connor isn’t a custom to, but a result of 6th place
