Some seriously dialed riding went down at the UCI BMX Freestyle World Cup Flatland finals! Check the highlights from the top eight...
There are not a thousand solutions to beat the heat wave which still blushes the shoulders of FISE today. You can use water; it was done to clean the flat surface that serves as a stage for the extraordinary BMX flat riders. We can also look for this little wind coming from the sea. The air conditioning was started beforehand by the women final won by Julia Preuss. Then it was a real squall from Japan that froze all local hopes of seeing Matthias Dandois (6th) achieve the miracle of winning a new FISE despite a sore foot. The Frenchman is not having a great day and a few errors penalize some of his best sequences. Same disappointment for Viki Gomez (8th) and his titanium bike of only 7 kilos. Too bad also for the Thailand rider “Toon” who is a treat to see riding but who does not land the very end of a sequence of more than one minute.
