UCI BMX Supercross 2011
I am still alive… barely! Been so manic but have some great updates to throw up here over the next couple of days. So here’s a late entry for April -
Last weekend was the first stop for this years UCI BMX Supercross series and it took place at Alexandra Park in Pietermaritzburg. All the world’s best riders were in town to get their olympic qualifying points up. The girls definitely have bigger balls than most guys I know, even bigger than the balls that AC/DC sing about. They had no issue hurling themselves down the 40ft roll-in and straight into a jump that looked to be around 45 feet long. Overall the racing was intense and had it’s share of thrills of spills. Three broken collarbones worth of spills to be precise. I was covering the two international Red Bull riders, Michal Prokop and Mariana Pajon. Here are some images.
