The UCI BMX SX World Cup visits Papendal in the Netherlands for the third stop of the competition on June 15-16.

Shanaze Reade goes into Papendal as the clear favourite to win after dominating the first two rounds in Manchester and Santiago del Estero. A win in the Netherlands would almost guarantee her the World Cup title for 2013. However, second placed American Brooke Crain will be pushing Shanaze hard.

The Men’s World Cup is closer with Australia’s Connor Fields leading the overall standings on 460 points. He is followed by France's Joris Daudet and Britain's Liam Phillips on 365 and 360 points respectively.

A race report and highlights from Papendal will follow on Red Bull Bike after the event, so check back then.
