Tioga BMX Pro Rider Recap – UCI BMX SX World Cup 5 & 6, Zolder, Belgium 2018

Tioga is the official Tire sponsor of the 2018 UCI BMX World Cup tour. Stop 5 & 6 of the 2018 headed to the Circuit Zolder, in Belgium. Built in 1963, Zolder hosted the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix on 10 separate occasions in the 1970s and 1980s. In 2015, The UCI BMX World Championship was held there, and since 2017, it has been a exciting stop on the World Cup Tour.
On Saturday, it was an Elite Men’s sweep by Tioga supported riders, as once again, Niek Kimmann took his 3rd win of 2018, with Sylvain Andre in 2nd, and Twan Van Gendt in 3rd. On the Elite Women’s side, once again on the podium this time in 2nd and 3rd, it was the dynamic Dutch duo of Judy Baauw and Laura Smulders.
On Day 2, Niek Kimmann stopped the class once again, taking his 4th win of the World Cup tour in 2018, followed up by Joris Daudet in 2nd and breaking his string of bad luck Anthony Dean would finish up 3rd.
Laura Smulders would not be denied the win on Day 2, as she took her 4th win of the season, with Judy Baauw again in 2nd and Natalia Afremova from Russia in 3rd.
The riders has 2 world cups left in 2018 to decide the Champion, and its looking all roses for Niek and Laura, but as we all know, anything can happen in BMX.
