The third stop on the UCI BMX SX calendar saw the racers arrive in Papendal, Holland to go head to head.

The Elite women's event was dominated by the reigning Olympic Champion, Columbia's Mariana Pajon. Pajon won the Superfinal Time Trial competition then progressed through to the main final before holding off a good charge from the USA's Arielle Martin to take the win.

It was Martin's first podium of the season, coming in a second and a half ahead of Australia's Laura Reynolds.

In the men's race Connor Fields took victory in the Superfinal Time Trial and won all three of his qualifying heats only to crash in the quarterfinals. In the final crowd favourite, Dutchman, Jelle van Gorkom, narrowly took the win just a quarter of a second ahead of Edzus Treimanis. France's Damien Godet came in third.
