UCI BMX Supercross World Cup: Victory for Fields and Pajon in Papendal time trials




Already leader of the World Cup and World Champion in the time trial, the American Connor Fields today added a new victory to his list of achievements. The Colombian Mariana Pajon made the most of Reade’s absence to take victory in the women’s race.

The Papendal track in Holland has given us a foretaste of what is to come. Forty days out from the Worlds in Auckland, Connor Fields demonstrated that he will be a real contender in New Zealand. But before travelling to the All Blacks country, the Californian reminded everyone that he is World Champion in the time trial. After Santiago Del Estero last month, he clocked in with the fastest time today in 38”064. The athletes from US Cycling prevented Jelle Van Gorkom from tasting victory in front of his own public. Van Gorkom finished in 38”241, while France’s Damien Godet finished third in 38”638.

Fields commented: "It went really well, can't think of any mistakes that I made or anywhere where I could have gone better. Top to bottom an overall good lap."

Women: Pajon’s first

A veritable star on the social media in her country (610,000 followers on Twitter) the Colombian Mariana Pajon took her first victory of the season. With Reade absent (a knee injury forced the British rider to stay home), the South American held nothing back in racing through the time trial. Her reference time was 37”207, in front of the American Alise Post (37”937) and France’s Manon Valentino (39”430).

"I had a really good gate and first straight, jumped the triple and just wanted to go smooth and fast and have fun," said the winner. "I'm very happy with the win."

The Supercross final starts tomorrow at 4.35pm
