Olympic Qualifying for #Tokyo2020 underway!

Such a fun few days in China with such a cool group of girls! Almost got there for the podium but definitely happy with a fourth place with a bunch of top riders!
Extremely proud to have @jessie_smithbmx in the final and super close to having THREE kiwis in the final! Such a good trip and looking forward to Argentina World Cup in 2 weeks!

Proud to be an #IronMaiden (with these legendary kiwi women) supporting #WorldIronWeek and having New ZealandΒ beef and lamb power me through my training and competitions.

Ten years! A decade since my first Olympic Games in #Beijing2008! To be part of the sports first appearance at the Olympics was such an incredible experience on one of my favorite tracks of all time.

Pretty cool to reflect on my journey and stoked to be working towards #Toyko2020! What an amazing ride it has been so far!

#10years #anniversary #bmx

2 years till #Tokyo2020!

My 20's included experiences like the Olympic Games, World Titles, World travel, bucket list items, an engagement, joining the Olympic movement and countless incredible moments. The setbacks and failures are what made those moments even more spectacular.
Excited for what my 30's will bring!

Stoked to end my 20's with an amazing trip:
Azerbaijan (BMX) > Turkey (Holiday) > France (IOC) > Netherlands (Training) > Switzerland (UCI) > Greece (IOA) 😎

So, I was stoked to get 9th in the World, but I'm beyond stoked to see my Smulders sisters go WORLD ONE AND TWO! πŸ’™β€πŸ–€πŸ’›πŸ’š
I love that sport can create lifelong friendships, and that seeing your besties succeed feels just as good as when you do it yourself! Appropriately celebrated with a spinning hug like in the movies! 🌈πŸ₯‡πŸ₯ˆπŸ‡³πŸ‡±
SO incredible to see @lauraasmulders get her first rainbow jersey (as World Champion) and to see her share the moment with her sister @merelsmulders (as World Two) was unforgettable!

Race day here at World Champs! πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ It's been pretty windy so this photo is just from doing a quick bunny hop off the last roller πŸ˜‚πŸ‘Œ Thanks @navadanet for the perfect timing! πŸ“Έ

| BLACK&WHITE | 😎 got the kiwi colours ready for World Champs in Baku, Azerbaijan πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ώ Always an honour to be selected to race in the silver fern!

Was a bit sore for the World Cup in Belgium so made the most of the situation to go through my mental process, to roll onto the gate with other riders, to look down at the first jump from on top of an 8m hill & to visualize what it will be like at World Champs in a few weeks time! 😊

Had an awesome weekend racing two World Cups in The Netherlands! πŸ‡³πŸ‡± 9th fastest lap of day 1 and a 5th in the semi. And, 4th fastest lap of day 2 😁 but with a crash in the semi followed by a bike running into my helmet & adding a decent bruise to my jaw. Stoked to be ok - I have been better, but I've definitely been a lot worse! πŸ˜…
A few things to keep working on but a lot to be proud of! 😊

Two more World Cups in Belgium up next! πŸ‡§πŸ‡ͺ

Been a minute but we're World Cup racing today! Let's have some fun @papendal @ucibmxsx
