World Champ and Free Agent team rider, Alec Bob was invited out to race in the Go Pro Games in Eagle Colorado. Here is what happens when you a World champion a place to go and camera to capture their adventure.
This past weekend I was in Rock Hill, SC at one of my favorite facilities on the circuit. Racing started off Friday, with sub 40 temperatures as well as a head wind down the second straight. The winds made it challenging for the elites to make it through the pro set and over the berm jump at the end of the second straight away. I ended the day with my best finish in elite so far with a 6th place finish in the semi main. For the first time this year I was only bike lengths away from making the main. On day two the winds were vice versa of Friday with a headwind down the first straight and a tailwind down the second straight. My day ended early after two hiccups in my first and third round I had too many points to advance to the semi. Sunday turned out to be the coldest of the three day with temperatures hovering around 35 degrees and misty. Since I ride in these conditions on a regular basis I wasn’t phased. I went on to win all three mains in Pro open on Sunday.
With our local track being closed due the recent snowfall and rainy forecast, I will be going to Florida this weekend to spend more on the big hill to prep for the two upcoming world cups races in early May. I’m looking forward to riding in sunny and warm conditions.
Alec Bob pulls out the win at the Spring Nationals in Albuquerque New Mexico. Lets check in with him for the race report.
It has been a busy past two months of racing for myself. Oldsmar was my first elite race on the big hill. I was able to make it to semis Sunday but failed to move on from rounds on Friday and Saturday. Collegiate nationals were in Monroe, La this year. It was a great weekend for myself winning every lap except the final on Sunday due to my slid out in turn 1 (while in the lead). With my win on Saturday and my teammates win both days our team walked away with our 6 Collegiate National title in a row.
After a 4 year absence I returned to ABQ for a fun filled weekend at elevation. On Friday and Saturday I had high points in motos which kept me from moving on to semis. I turned things around Sunday and won the pro open class. This win is my third win so far in the pro class and I’m stoked.
My next few races will be in Charlotte, NC next weekend and Atlanta, GA in late April.
Congratulations to team rider Alec Bob on winning the USA BMX Pro Rookie of the year!
