My predictions are that some of the finest BMXer's in the USA will go over to Cophenhagen and represent themselves, their families, their teams and most of all their country with PRIDE & will give everything they've got to be on the podium. At the worlds there are no rivalries, no team bs and everyone encourages all of the riders. I really wish all of you would do the same, regardless of who your favorite rider is & leave some of this pettiness out of the discussion. It is not good for our sport nor for the riders who have worked hard and really need encouragement as they head over to Copenhagen.

Good Luck to ALL of the riders and I sincerely hope that if JP isn't at the top of the podium that one of the other very talented, very hardworking JR MEN occupy that spot. Better yet, hoping for a JR podium sweep.


GO USA!!

Just a couple predictions:

Elite Men
Joris is coming off 12 straight wins in the Euro Series and a w3 from last year and has the confidence to take the whole thing.

I believe Willy will be in it. "Mr. Podium" as they say.

Sam is the one of the most consistent BMX Racers of all time, he'll have a spot.

Maris will be in it, but I don't see him riding full form just yet. (Just a prediction!)

Tory Nyhaug will make it. That kid has been rolling lately.

USA will have TWO riders in the main.

Australia will have Willoughby(+1) in.

Just a guess at the Elite Main:
1. Joris Daudet
2. Sam Willoughby
3. Marc Willers
4. Tory Nyhaug
5. Corben Sharrah
6. Raymon Van Der Biezen
7. Brian Kirkham
8. David Herman

Khalen Young, Connor Fields, Sylvain Andre, Donny Robinson, Damien Godet, Marcus Bloomfield, Jelle Van Gorkom, Nic Long all in Semi's.

Junior Men
All US riders qualify out of time trials.

USA will have at least 3 riders in the main.

France will have at least 2 in.

South Africa will have Dodd in.

New Zealand will have Trent Woodcock in the main.

1. Rusty Nesvig
Don't know too much about the international Junior scene, but I do know Rusty could make the Elite main.

Elite Women
Sarah Walker, Shanaze Reade, Arielle Martin, Le Corguille, Manon Valentino, Mariana Pajon, Caroline Buchanan, Alise Post in the main.

Carr, Reynolds, Geving in semi's.

1. Sarah Walker
2. Shanaze Reade
3. Mariana Pajon

Junior Women
Brooke Crain

Additional comments on various riders;

KY (rumors has it that he has started to take bmx seriously again and has lost weight - a bit of a joker)
Biezen (was 3rd in the first turn, in the final, in Pietermaritzburg.. and looked super strong in Papendal)
Hamon (need to say anything?)
Sylvain Andre (coming back from injury, but if hes 100% ready, he could easily make the final)
Moana (looked strong in Haaksbergen, is he fast on an SX hill too??),
Fields (coming back from injury, so he might not be 100% ready?)
Herman (can never be counted out, but usually clucks up on the track)
Long (can never be counted out)
Donny (did look bad in Papendal)
Treimanis (looks stronger and stronger for each race),
Tiger Robinson (is a joker, pretty unknown to the most ppl, but really really fast)
Mike Day (didnt look particularly fast in Papendal, will he ever regain his '08 & '09 SX form??)

I read in an interview that he stopped drinking. Not that it was really an issue, but he mentioned weight and he dropped a bit and it got him faster. Sort of what I'm trying to do myself. I got a bit of a "beer gut" and I'm trying to work it down.

I'd really like to see Mike Day come back into it. He's one of my faves. I have a lot of favorite riders based on a lot of criteria, but attitude and what you give back means a lot to me. That's why I really like Strombergs, and Willers. Both great guys on and off the track. Day and Sharrah as well.
