Walker Misses Out On Qualification At Bmx World Championship

Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Mon 30/May/16 1:17pm

London Olympic medal-list Sarah Walker has not qualified for the elimination rounds at the UCI BMX World Championships in Colombia.

Walker, who injured her shoulder in a training accident yesterday, could only manage fifth place in each of her three qualifying motos which was not enough to advance to the quarterfinals.

It also means Walker will not secure one of the last qualifying places for the Rio Olympics, after finishing fourth in the sport’s first Olympics in Beijing and a silver medal in London.

Meanwhile New Zealand’s other three riders in the elite competition have all qualified for the elimination rounds, after rain delayed proceedings at Medellin.

Maynard Peel, from the Sunset Coast club, topped his qualifying group in the junior elite competition with two wins and a third to progress.

High Performance team member Matt Cameron was in excellent form with two wins and a second to top his qualifying group in the elite men’s competition, while North Harbour’s Michael Bias, in his first world championships as an elite, won his final moto to progress. Bias was fourth and sixth in the opening two rounds but won the last moto to secure the fourth and final spot in his group on count back to move to the quarterfinals.

on a more positive note though, Matt Cameron got through to the semis and Junior Elite Maynard Peel smoked every one to become WORLD CHAMPION! :thumbsup:

Lots of other Kiwi shredders doing us proud in Colombia.
This list may not be complete, as I've just grabbed the various FB page posts from the racing, and doesn't include the many NZ racers that battled through to 1/4 and semi finals.
