Individual time trails are held before the race. Racers compete for the best time and best lap time gets first pick of the gate, and then the order goes from there.
In the Elite Women class Alise Post (USA) was on her way to a win in the BMX Arena at the National Cycling Centre until she crashed on her own on the very last jump. The win went to Caroline Buchanan who also won round one two weeks ago in Argentina and is leading the series with 450 points over Simone Christensen (DEN) with 350 pts and Mariana Pajon in third. The Colombian crashed out in the final race and got a DNF.

Holy hell.. The beginning of this week was brutal testing positive with bird flu on Tuesday.. I got better each day and this guy took care of me not caring at all if he caught it. He kept my spirits alive despite feeling dead. I can't thank him enough as well as @usacycling @realdrjrich @tonymhoffman & family for keeping my head up and focusing on one lap at a time. I'm gutted for Alise but shit I needed some good luck on my side!!! 3rd today in round #2 @ucibmxsx. YAY🇺🇸
