Over the weekend, team Redline members Tory Nyhaug, Alise Post, Collin Hudson and Hunter Pelham headed out for the first round of the 2014 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup at the National Cycling Center in Manchester, England. BMXNEWS.com covered all the supercross action throughout the weekend, with 164 men and 41 women on the pre-race entry list, it was tough competition from the start. Notably absent from the list of entries was Sam Willoughby, who’s racing Australia this coming week and is prepping for that. Alise Post, the top-ranked woman in the building was out for the weekend after a mishap down the ramp and into the first jump in Friday’s practice. When asked about her condition in an interview during the Saturday webcast, she said “I have an idea that it’s not good, but I guess I can’t say until I get it checked out back home.” All hopes for good news, and a quick return to the hill in the USA BMX series.
