Where we have opportunities in BMX. The women and men did really well in qualifying yesterday, and today it’s all about the slides. Starting at 3.00 a.m. Dutch time we go into the wilderness and we’ll see, for example, if Niek Kimmann’s knee knits well. He bumped into a training official earlier this week, and he’s suffering from it now.
Another big event tomorrow: the Netherlands will play the United States in the quarter-finals. Two years ago that was the final of the World Cup, but because the United States did not do well in the group stage, both countries do meet.
Soon in Tokyo
