By team

“Being defending champion puts pressure on me, I am not focusing on a Supercross title this year,” said winner Strombergs. “It is no secret that it is all about the Olympics and the Worlds this year. Olympics is a big thing in BMX – me being a defending Olympic champion puts a lot of pressure on me and my expectations are always high. But I get older and wiser and I am confident. So I want to be a 100 per cent by the time the Olympics come.”

Alice Post won the women’s race:

“I jumped the triple in practice and had not hit it since. It was kind of a split decision moment. I knew I had to do it to get me out in front and I went for it. After that I tried to focus on the moment. Not to make any mistakes. Caroline and the other girls are great riders. I just wanted to cross the line first and I did.”
