The Dutch BMX’ers there Saturday for the first time in four years failed to get a medal to conquer to the world cup.
In the U.s. Rock Hill fell Niek Kimmann on the fourth place just outside the prizes. The profits went to the American Corben Sharrah, for the French Sylvain André and defending champion Joris Daudet.
Kimmann was in 2015 and still world champion, a year later he was second. Jelle van Gorkom, who won a silver medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, and Twan van Gendt were already in the quarter-finals off.
All the women ended Laura Smulders from the netherlands in the final as sixth. She was a lousy start, soon no chance. In 2014 she conquered won the bronze at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS.
