Great Salt Lake Nationals

Stop No. 17 on the USA BMX National circuit was the one and only doubled-up weekend of the year, with most West Coasters heading to Rad Canyon BMX in South Jordan, Utah, for some hot racing action in cold weather.

Daylight’s former World Champ Corben Sharrah would dominate the small field for his third and fourth wins of 2019. Again, the Pro pattern of doubles continues for this season, as we’ve had a single Elite Mens winner every single weekend. In another Alise-less class of Elite Women, Full Tilt’s Ashley Verhagen would also win both days, narrowly edging out Remix’s Rachael Mydock on day two. It was also great to see Haro’s Brooke Crain back in the mix and on the podium. She had recently quelled rumors by tweeting that she’s been injured this year but is not retiring, and that she’s still got her eyes on the prize - of making the 2020 U.S. Olympic team. On Saturday, Throdwn’s Dani George (another Olympic hopeful) snagged the third rung of the womens podium.
