Nic Long has more experience than most at the top level of BMX racing, which makes him the perfect person to ask about the competition. Who’s definitely going to cut you off, who’s gonna blow by you in the turns and who’s annoyingly good in the rhythm section … Nic rates the competition!

15: Who’s most likely to cut you off straight out of the gate? 

NL: Chalo Molina coming from 8 in Rock Hill.

 

15: Who’s got the most consistent first straight pull?

NL: Anthony Dean all day, then Niek Kimmann in the mains with 2000+ World Cup wins.

 

15: Who’s the safest person to be bar to bar with over the biggest jump on the track?

NL: Corben Sharrah … I’d feel comfortable with him anywhere in the track.

 

15: Who’s got every option down the rhythm section dialed by end of first practice?

NL: Renaud Blanc with a full speed Jedi manual through a gapable rhythm.

 

15: Who’s the worst person to have behind you going into the last turn of a semi in forth?

NL: Going into the last turn would be Negro Lima (Exequiel Torres) but coming out would have to be Kye Whyte. 

 

15: Who’s the most fun at the after party?

NL:  It’s 2020, these kids don’t do after parties anymore, everyone is pre-signed for the Olympics. Last real after party was Colombia Worlds 2016, and Rio … but if I had to choose. Eddy was a fun time in Bathurst haha.

 

15: Who’s going to surprise everyone in the coming years?

NL:  He proved It last weekend, and I may give him a hard time … but I love the kid, Eddy Clerte. With TA behind him, he may have an underdog shot at Tokyo.
