The 2016 BMX World Championships were held in Medellin, Colombia from the 23rd to the 29th of May. Slightly earlier than last year due to the Olympics; which meant only 6 weeks of training post Nationals.
Well done to all the NZ Team riders with some exceptional riding especially Leila Walker taking out her 4th World Title and our other World Title Champions Sasha Earnest, Cailen Calken, Jessie Smith and of course Maynard Peel.
A third BMX Worlds has left Caitlin Georgantas happy with her performance and results. The 18-year-old followed up world competition in Auckland in 2013 and Belgium last year with her best ever returns
The good times keep rolling for BMX rider Caitlin Georgantas. The 18-year-old from Upper Hutt recorded some of the best performances of her career this year, which culminated in BMX New Zealand naming her as their Sportswoman of the Year following their national championships on March 27.
Returning to Wellington from the 2015 National champs in Christchurch there was no time for resting. I began my Worlds prep just days after returning. I spent 12 weeks working hard both on the bike and in the classroom.
