Whats your predictions for this world championship? (im thinking elite and only elite)

Who i think will make the final;

Daudet
Maris
Willers
Sam
Pickard
Jelle
Kirkham
Sharrah

Daudet is my favorite, he is the only rider that has a very good first straight while also having the same track speed as Mike Day use to have. Daudet is a very complete rider - the most complete rider Ive ever witnessed in BMX.

Daudet is the only guy who was more track speed than Maris - Im not just saying this because he passed Maris in Haaksbergen, I thought this long before Haaksbergen.

Would like to see Pickard in the final, he deserves a good result after all the injuries he's had (did I mention that his first straight is insane? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) )

Podium will have Willers, Willoughby and Daudet on it. Sharrah, Strombergs, Fields, Stein and Long should all be in the mix.

Loebe and Nesvig will battle it out in the main assuming Loebe and Posey aren't given the opportunity to take one another out.

Crain will win Jr. Women.

Buchanan vs. Post in elite women.

Nah, Reade will win if she can keep her head on straight. If not I think Walker or Valentino will get it.

Is Crain even riding after her injury last week? And can Daniels qualify without jumping or completing the start hill?

And no-one has any love for Khalen Young? Big mistake. Everyone is discounting a few really good riders.

Some really good riders missing here. I agree with Mike KY should be listed.
Daudet is on fire but at the Worlds anything can happen and with so much talent it's difficult to call. For the ladies I just don't see 3D even making the main unless Purse taught her how to jump. She has the horsepower but without the jumping skills she really has no chance. Maybe she will prove me wrong.
Hope I get to make the trip since my last Worlds was 2004.

For the men:
Daudet
Stromberg
van Gorkum
Willers
Willoughby

are the only names I truly expect to see in the finals. The others can be anyone from a few crazy Columbians to 3 USA riders. But these 5 riders are the only I would almost bet on that they will make the finals.

For the women:
Walker
Reade
Valentino
le Corguille

The rest I expect to be filled by the strong USA and Aussie riders with possibly a good placing for the growing Czech team as well.

That's my 2 cents. Cannot wait to be there next saturday and see how it all turns out during THE international BMX event of the season.
