Track to 2012: Oakley BMX Racers Shanaze Reade and Marc Willers Sweep UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in London
Think Supercross. Minus the motors…and with Olympic implications. BMX’s version of the two-wheel racing spectacle hit a fever pitch in London last month for the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in the Olympic Park. And not surprisingly, Oakley dominated. Shanaze Reade laid the smack down and dominated the final on the Olympic ‘first course’ as fellow Oakley rider Marc Willers of New Zealand claimed the title on the men’s side. In a truly tough day for all athletes, organizers and track builders involved, 64 Elite Men and 32 Elite Women battled through a three hour rain delay and threw down after the sky cleared.
