SEVENTH HEAVEN -
TUCKER LEADS AUSSIES ON DAY 3 IN ZOLDER

COVER PIC: Craig Dutton Photography

Australia’s successful 2019 UCI BMX World Championships campaign has continued with another batch of awesome results added to an already impressive list.

On a day where racing was delayed several times for medical and heat related issues, Pine Rivers’ prolific world champion Thomas Tucker has led the way for Australia by storming to a seventh consecutive 20inch gold medal, bringing his personal world title tally to nine.

Joining Tucker (pictured) as finalists on a day three that will be forever remembered as ‘the heat day’ were four other Australians, with Abbey Richards (Southside) claiming a silver and Terrigal’s Noah Elton a bronze.

While the day’s first long delay was attributed to a lack of ambulances following a spate of crashes, temperatures climbed into the high 30’s forcing event organisers to take several more long breaks – at the direction of the Belgian Health Authority – until the climate had cooled.

But even after the temperatures had dropped, the racing on track had a fierce fire which was fuelled by the 12-16yr old male riders, and the 14-16, 17-24 and 25 & over female competitors

STAT STACK
2x ELITE GOLD IS OUR BEST EVER... No Aussie rider has won more than two elite world titles. Natarsha Williams was the first to do so in 1996 and 2000. Sam Willoughby is the only other to have achieved this feat, having done so in 2012 and 2014. 

History shows that Williams is equal second on the list of most elite women’s titles with Dutch rider Willy Kanis. Ahead of them is Argentinian Gabriela Diaz, Britain's Shanaze Reade and Colombian Mariana Pajon – all with three titles  

Meanwhile, Willoughby is equal with Joris Daudet (FRA), Maris Strombergs (LTV), Dale Holmes (GBR) and Thomas Allier (FRA) with two elite titles. Kyle Bennett (USA) heads the list with three elite world titles.
