While we look towards a great season in 2017, with Joris Daudet already winning on the USA BMX North American Supercross series, and Romain Mahieu placing 2nd, We need to look back at the sensational season of 2016! Connor Fields took gold at the Rio Olympics. Joris Daudet won the 2016 UCI BMX World Championships in Elite men and the #1 USA BMX Pro once again making it 2 years in a row. Stefany Hernandez and Carlos Ramirez both placed 3rd at the Rio Olympics as well, winning the bronze medal, and Yaroslava Bondarenko finished 5th in the Elite Women’s class at the Rio. Connor is also the top USA Elite Pro rider winning the USA Cycling National Championship. Romain Mahieu won the 2016 European Championship in the Time Trial event.
