Willoughby Blistering Fast at UCI BMX World Cup Finale

BMX - Chula Visa, CA

The 2013 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup season had a big finish for Troy Lee Designs athlete Sam Willoughby (AUS).

Sam has been on an absolute tear in the USA BMX series this year, breaking the all-time consecutive wins record in the AA Pro class. But it has been three years since he topped the podium at a World Cup event, and he was ready to do it again in Chula Vista.


In the men's main event, Sam exploded out of the start gate to take the holeshot. Local favorite Connor Fields (USA) and Tory Nyhaug (CAN) chased Willoughby down to the end of the first straight where Nyhaug managed to work himself into second place. During the challenging and exciting second straight, it was Willoughby who showed blistering speed. He shook off the competition and never looked back, taking his first and only World Cup win of this year as he has not focused on the world cup title this year after winning it convincingly in 2012.

Sam currently leads the ABA pro tour in the USA, after breaking the consecutive win record held for over 15 years! Sam Willoughby's next event will be the ABA Disney Classic in Florida on October 26-27.
