Stop #9 of the 2018 USA BMX Pro Series tour took the Elite racers to one of the most loved and historical tracks in BMX, the EP Tom Sawyer Derby City BMX track in Louisville, KY. With the 2018 season on the wind down and just a few stops left for the Pros, each race is important for anyone looking to take the #1 Pro title from last years Champ, Connor Fields.
The Chase BMX Pros, Connor Fields and Joris Daudet both headed to Stop #8 for the Elite riders of the 2018 season for race round 15 & 16 for the Pro Series tour. Joris Daudet has wanted to regain his USA BMX #1 Pro title ever since the last main event at the 2017 Grands, where Connor took the plate and title away.
Each year the best in BMX racing all converge into one location to deem who is the best of the best at the UCI BMX World Championships. The most prestigious BMX race that is held each year, other than the Olympics, offers an opportunity for one Elite rider in 4 classes, Elite and Jr Men / Woman to take home the rainbow jerseys, to show the grand accomplishment for the next season as being a UCI BMX World Champion.
