It was shining green and gold on a scorching 30+ degree first day of the 2019 UCI BMX World Championships at Zolder in Belgium with Thomas Tucker and Portia Eden (pictured) racing to W1 cruiser plates.
The extreme heat had spectators and riders ducking for shade and water all day but each and every one of the 32 Aussie riders competing for world plates did the BMXA family proud.
In particular were the six riders who made it into their respective finals, led by Tucker (13-14 boy’s cruiser) and Eden (12 & under girl’s cruiser), and supported on the podium by Callum Howarth (13-14 boy’s cruiser) and Tahlia Marsh (13-16 girl’s cruiser), who both grabbed bronze.
