Rounds 9 and 10 at Santiago del Estero were the last two rounds of the 2019 UCI BMX SX World Cup. The long journey, for most, had to be made in order to end the World Cup season in a good way. Lots of ranking changes happened after the two rounds in Argentina so if you were not there, you most likely dropped a few places in the 2019 standings.
Missing the races in Santiago del Estero were a.o. Joris Daudet (FRA), Judy Baauw (NED) and Alise Willoughby (USA). The three riders were sitting in the top 3 before the last two rounds but injuries, family matters and not feeling 100% fit for the race had the athletes sit out on this one waiting to see where they would end up in the 2019 World Cup series.
From the BMXRacingGroup Youtube page - Chase BMX Pro team Race Report - Rounds 5 & 6 of the 2019 UCI BMX World Cup Supercross tour were held in Pairs, France and both Joris Daudet and Connor Fields were ready to race against the world fastest racers.
