2016 UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup under way
It was much awaited and did not disappoint. The opening round of the inaugural UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup saw breath-taking performances from some of the world’s best pro riders gathered in Montpellier, France.
It was a top quality field, with the top 5 of last year’s FISE (International Festival of Extreme Sports) World Series being joined in Saturday’s semi-final by the 19 best qualifiers from the day before. The only thing these athletes could not master was the weather: Sunday’s finals were cancelled due to bad weather, but the amazing semi-final performances remain firmly engraved in everyone’s minds. Next stop: Osijek, Croatia, July 21-23.
