A host of Australia’s elite BMX competitors have shone over the weekend at USA BMX’s Spring Nationals at Duke City BMX track in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Aussie riders are spread throughout the world competing and preparing for the upcoming UCI Superclass World Cups and World Championships as the build-up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic selection continues.
Leading the way in the US were Olympians Anthony Dean and Lauren Reynolds, with the duo ably supported by rising stars Matt Krasevskis, Josh McLean, Kyle Hill and Jack Davis.
Dean finished the two days of elite racing with a pair of runner-up finishes behind France’s two-time elite world champion Joris Daudet, while Krasevskis showed his potential with a podium finish behind the top pair on the second day after earlier finishing eighth on day one.
McLean also impressed, finishing fourth on the first day and sixth a day later.
Reynolds was fourth both days behind all-American podiums topped by Olympic silver medallist Alise Willoughby.
The talented Davis had an up and down weekend in the junior elite class – scoring a strong win on the opening day, before breaking a collarbone on his way to fourth on day two that has prematurely ended his current US campaign.
Hill raced in the A Pro division and finished with a brilliant win on day one and a second on day two.
