Robert De Wilde  

Triumphing over some of the best BMX riders in the world, Maxxis? sponsored rider Robert de Wilde has won the first round of the UCI BMX Supercross.

Held June 18-19 in the heart of the Alps, at the World Cycling Center in Aigle, Switzerland, the race featured a highly technical track. de Wilde took first place with a total time of 35.985, winning a cash prize of 3’750 Swiss francs.

 

The UCI BMX Supercross was the year’s first event in what UCI is calling “the premier international BMX racing series for 2005 and beyond.” Because the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing will feature BMX, the organization has said it plans to make the series a “platform for promoting the Olympic BMX format.”

 

The second race in the series will be held September 9-10 in San Jose, California, in conjunction with the Dew Action Sports Tour.

 

Maxxis congratulates Robert de Wilde on his victory and wishes him the best in his upcoming events.
