Here’s a clip of the Elite Men’s finals during the last race of 2016 UCI World Cup season. The event was held at the beautifully rebuilt Sarasota BMX track in Florida. On the gate were some heavy hitters Dave Van Der Burg(NED), Exequiel Torres(ARG), Trey Whyte(GRB), Sylvain André(FRA), Maris Strombergs(LAT), Carlos Ramirez(COL), Troy Nyhaug(CAN), Corben Sharrah(USA).
right out the gate Corben had it with a sick snap, Exequiel over anticipated the cadenence and hit the gate. Looks like Maris knew he could pull the riders next to him from gate 8 so he basically shut them all down by moving over but by time they got to the first turn Corben was ahead of him and never looked back. From there the stage was pretty set except for Exequiel Torres who was rapidly making up ground for that bad start in the 2nd straight. He was working on moving into 2nd place but came in a little too low in the 2nd turn and got a lil tangled up with Maris and went down. From there it was the Corben and Maris show! Corben won for the day and the 2016 season, dude had an awesome year!! Salute to him and to Daylight Bicycles!
