Berlin 2014

2014 SX Round 3,

Berlin, Germany

 

This is the first UCI SX World Cup event being held in Germany. The Mellowpark BMX Track in Berlin was the venue for the Red Bull Revolution in 2013. The track has undergone a few changes in order to make it more raceable in order to fit into the World Cup circuit.

 

On the Thursday practice, Liam was not able to take part due to a severe eye infection. After some treatment from the eye clinic and his personal doctor, he was able to open the eye by Friday morning and managed to get a few laps practice in before racing.

 

In the first heat, Liam finished 6th after an insecure start on the first straight due to his eye not being 100%, however moto two started off better with Liam getting a great snap, putting him in the hunt for a top 2 spot until he blew a clip going down the ramp, but he came back to finish 5th. By moto 3 his confidence was growing and he raced to 4th in a stacked gate. These results left him out of the 1/8's for Saturday, but his fighting spirit will see him in top form again soon.
