February 10/12 9:35 am - Canadian BMXers Compete for Second Olympic Spot

Posted by Editor on 02/10/12

Canada is in a tight race with Argentina to qualify a second spot for men's BMX at the 2012 Olympic Games.

BMX riders Tory Nyhaug of Coquitlam, BC, and Jim Brown of Airdrie, Alberta, will be competing for Canada at the 2012 UCI BMX Continental Championships this weekend in Oldsmar, Florida.

Canada is hoping to score big at this event, which could help secure a second spot for Canada at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Canada is currently ranked in ninth spot with 1409 points, and is only seven points behind the eighth spot in the World ranking, trailing Argentina. The top eight countries in the UCI World Rankings are allocated two spots at the Olympic Games.

The event, also dubbed the USA BMX Gator Nationals, starts on Friday with practices and ends on Sunday. The PRO-UCI (Class 3) races will be held on Saturday February 11th, and starts at 11:30 am ET. A UCI (Class 4) race is scheduled for Sunday, February 12th.
