Netherlands own women BMX elite racer Judy Baauw took home the title at the third wound of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Papendal! Judy rode a smart race in front of her hometown crowd and let the two fastest women in BMX cancel each other on that last turn as she passed them for the win.
Alise had the holeshot out of the first turn with Smulders and Baauw in tow. Alise was lead out the 2nd turn then on the 3rd straight Smulders had a super pump and caught up. Baauw was still in 3rd place but pretty far behind. Then as Alise and Laura came into turn three side by side, Alise tried to take Laura up the berm to slow her down and left the door open for Baauw to make her move. Down the last straight it was all about who had the better pump and momentum, today it was Judy Baauw!
With this 1st place Judy also took the lead in the rankings. This was also her first World Cup Win. Sunday was round 4 and Judy finished in 5th place.
