This past weekend was the 1st stop on the UCI World Cup Series in Manchester, England. Our Anthony Dean hooked up with the Australian National Team for the first training camp/trip to Europe of the year. After a successful camp the week leading into the race, Anthony started to feel more comfortable on the big hill.
Once race time arrived, his confidence was really up and he was banging out wins straight away. After a solid win in the semi-final, Anthony knew that the podium was in his reach. Although he didn’t have the best gate he rode a smart, solid lap and secured his spot on the box with his first ever 2nd place on the UCI World Cup podium. We know there is much more to come.
Anthony continues his World tour – now headed for Australia to race the National Championships scheduled in the next couple of weeks. He will then be back on the road again for the second stop of the UCI World Cup Series in Holland. Special thanks to BMX Australia and to all of our team sponsors for supporting our program.
