Switzerland's Nikita Ducarroz underlined the validity of her golden ambitions for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games as she won the BMX freestyle park final in the second and final leg of the International Festival of Extreme Sports (FISE) European Series in Châteauroux, France.
Having finished top in the previous day’s qualifying, Ducarroz earned the honours – and more points towards securing her country a qualification place at Tokyo 2020.
Ducarroz, fifth on the International Cycling Union World Cup rankings for the discipline, was followed home by another Olympic contender, Argentina’s Analia Zacarias.
Home rider Laury Perez took third place.
Armelle Tisler of France won the women’s freestyle roller park final with an impressive run.
In the wake of the newcomer from Marseille came compatriots Anaëlle Nogueira, and Manon Derrien.
In late events on Saturday, home rider Auguste Pellaud finished top of the freestyle scooter qualifying, ahead of compatriots Ugo Leonce and Maxim Bouzid.
But it was Leonce who took the main prize today ahead of Pellaud, with Bouzid finishing third.
France’s Diako Diaby won the freestyle rollerblading title after putting early pressure on his rivals with a first-run score of 90.66.
The Parisian’s mentor, Romain Godenaire, launched a huge double backflip on the box to start his two runs, eventually claiming third place behind the FISE Montpellier winner Jérémy Mélique.
