Over 170 riders from 26 nations were registered for this spectacular three-day BMX-event in Norway’s Randaberg Arena. This was the second stop of the UCI BMX Supercross of the 2012 season and is considered to be one of the key events in BMX leading up to the 2012 London Olympic Games. For some nations this event could be a key-qualifier, while for others their focus will be on other events this year and the World Championships held in London.
Skizo reflects on a weekend that saw him advance further than in Chula Vista.
” The weekend went pretty good for me. The track was awesome and suited my style of racing.
Time Trials is not my thing and if I finish in the top 50% of the field I am happy and know I’m quick enough to do well in the moto’s.
I managed to get in a good rhythm during racing and got through my moto’s with a 3rd in the first round, 2nd in the second round and 4th in the third round. This was enough for me to transfer quarter finals. These days there are no easy moto’s and you have to push each one like it was a main.
All the riders that qualify from the TT can get around the track fast, so it’s important to get down the first straight fast and execute well around the track.
In my quarter I was just stuck on the outside and came out the first turn in 5th or 6th I tried charging all the way to the line and eventually finished in 6th not transferring to the Semi Finals.
Very happy with the way I rode this weekend a lot of positives and the old me is creeping out.
Thank you all for the support. My next race is in Phoenix Arizona next weekend and I hope to keep improving.
