This past weekend, the Team headed out to Desoto, Texas for the USA-BMX Super Nationals. Desoto had great weather, track and facility and both our Dani George and Anthony Dean were looking to continue a great, consistent start the the year.
Dani started our Day 1 Friday night with a big win in the Elite Women class. Going into the last turn, Dani was in 2nd place and put a great pass on the girl in front getting her – her first big win of the year and maximum points toward the end of year points chase. Saturday, Day 2, Dani was looking to do the same but, unfortunately, a late gate in the main and slide out in the first turn, while coming through traffic put Dani on the ground and no chance to repeat Friday’s win. Still, no injuries and a win on Saturday makes it an unquestionably good weekend for her.
Anthony Dean was on it all weekend winning lots of laps and putting himself in the Elite Mens main event both days. Friday, Anthony placed 3rd and Saturday, day 2, Anthony backed up his Friday’s Podium with another great showing and 2nd place for the day and much like Dani can leave the weekend feeling good that everything is clicking into place for the year.
Both Dani and Anthony are now heading out to Europe to prep for the first World Cup of the season in a few weeks time in Manchester, England.
As always, a big thank you to all our sponsors and supporters of the program.
