We've made it to the UCI BMX Racing World Championships in Belgium just to hit the rain once again. The weather was perfect (if you like the heat) when we left and everyone was sweating like a pig but just before the Elite riders could event enter the track for their first official practice in Zolder, it started to rain. Combined with the lightning, thunder and wind it was time to postpone practice and that's where we're at right now. Championship Racing will be held on Saturday and even for tomorrow the weather doesn't look too good. But the show must go on. And if racing was possible at the UCI World's in Zolder in 2015, it will be possible with a bit of rain tomorrow. But the weather can turn around so could be back complaining about the hear again in 16 hours.
Connor Fields and Mariana Pajon put it together today in Zolder, Belgium winning the final in changing weather. Fields' win puts him in the leader position after three rounds while Laura Smulders holds on to the lead in the Women class after placing 6th today. Today's final results and the 2017 UCI BMX SX World Cup standings are listed below.

CLUUT is everything were a fan of in BMX - fun attitudes, antics, and of course skills on the bike. Hailing from Brussels, Belgium, you may remember these guys from previous videos featured on DIG , but this one, with the impressive Rodrigue Timellini and the even more hilarious Rachid is a doozy.
