Olympic victors Shriever and Kimmann double up at BMX World Championships



Olympic Games gold medallists Bethany Shriever (Great Britain) and Niek Kimmann (Netherlands) continued their run of success at the 2021 UCI BMX World Championships in on Sunday, with Shriever taking to the lead early to sail through a crash marred women’s race while Kimmann held off his rivals to enjoy a victory celebration in front of his home crowd.

In the women’s elite race it looked like Shriever would have to face a staunch challenge, with defending world champion Alise Willoughby (United States) and teammate Felicia Stancil among those that were quick out of the gate. However, quickly moving into that front position on the opening straight meant the 22 year old Shriever was clear of trouble when Stancil crashed, along with Zoe Classens (Switzerland) and Willoughby, on the exit of the first corner.
