Update from Challenge Classes Team Manager Sue Walker:
Kiwi riders represented New Zealand on Day 2 at the BMX Worlds in Rotterdam with pride and determination. The gates opened at 6.30am for the 5 to 11 year olds morning session, with racing commencing at 8.30am.
Team Management ran the pits area well where cool-downs, refreshments and organisation all resulted in a stress free rider atmosphere.
The afternoon session of 12 to 16 year old riders had its highs and lows with riders pushing themselves, resulting in some casualties. The results show a positive succession from the Auckland World Championships in 2013 through training, International travel (at riders' expense) and New Zealand tracks. The number of riders who made it through to semi and quarter finals throughout the day is a credit to their skill and hard work in training.
Day 3 sees the cruiser classes compete - 12 riders will represent New Zealand.
