GT's, Mike Day was looking GOOD at the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Salt Lake City. With the Dew Tour in the background, the Beijing Silver Medalist ripped off a blistering hot Time Trial run of 25.375 seconds on his first run firmly placing himself at the top of the Time Trial results.
The Big Surprise of the day was when rookie Connor Fields turned in the fastest lap of the day after only two riders had taken their TT runs. Although Connor had never competed in a UCI SX event before, he stayed on the Top Spot for 22 laps! Connor, only 15 is racing his first UCI SX race due to the UCI ruling that considers his age as of the '09 season for this race. He will be 16 in a couple weeks. Next to stand in the Fastest Time slot was Field's, Intense/Phantom/On Track team mate, Nic Long, who nailed it with a 25.718. The Top Five Time Trials results for the day consisted of #365; Kyle Bennett (25.613); Redline's French star, Damien Godet (25.650); Nic Long & Connor Fields.
With a ton of U.S. riders in attendance, no South Americans, no Aussies (Except for U.S. based, Khalen Young), half the Dutch Team and Damien in the field, it will be a different but interesting UCI SX race, all going down at 3PM MST / 5PM EST. According to the UCI, "The event will be broadcast on NBC Sports on Sunday 14th September and streamed live on www.freecaster.tv".
