The Great Salt Lake Nationals has been a regular stop on the USA BMX Tour and is always a top-notch event coupled with good weather this time of year. Both Anthony Dean and Dani George were ready to put the World Championships behind and after a few solid weeks of training down in San Diego, they were both ready to get some good results in on the domestic calendar.
Friday, Anthony was feeling strong all day and come main time — not even World Champion, Joris Daudet could stop him taking that much-eluded National win he has come close to many times. Anthony not only took the first place check but also grabbed the Holeshot bonus as well.
Saturday, once again Anthony feeling good again and backing Friday’s win he grabbed a 2nd place behind Chase’s Joris Daudet. Great weekend and more confidence in the bag going into this summer’s Olympic Games.
Dani George was feeling good placing 2nd on Friday behind National Champion, Alise Post but an unlucky crash out in Saturday’s semi final left her out of the main. Even tough it was disappointing, Dani knows she’s riding well and can carry it through the summer.
In all, a great weekend for the team with 3 podium finishes.
