Photo Galleries: Gold Cup Finals – Rock Hill

2014 DK Gold Cup East
As we head in to the last “Finals” event in the 2014 DK Gold Cup Series, this weekend in Chico, CA, we’re pleased to bring you Kavin Bradner’s photo galleries from last week’s Gold Cup East Finals at the Novant Health BMX Supercross facility in Rock Hill, SC.

The weekend’s racing had a little for everyone–sunny runs on Friday and Saturday Morning, and chilly, wet weather for Sunday. It made for a racing experience which some called “miserable” and others calls “the most fun I have had at a race this year,” further proof that the definition of “fun” is all down to the user.

It was the first opportunity for BMXers beyond the immediate area to see the multi-million dollar Rock Hill facility operating as it was intended–with Elites blazing down the big hill, and ams on the “challenge” hill. As the weather deteriorated, the men were routed to the womens side, avoiding the berm jump (except for Barry Nobles, who jumped over his moto-mates one lap, wowing the soggy and otherwise-grumpy crowd).

When it was all said and done, Sam Willoughby and Alise Post topped the Elite podiums both days. Matt Pohlkamp won Vet Pro both days. It was A-Pro that had some change on the top step, as Justin Riddell took it on Saturday and Leonardo Caze Santos Neto took it on Sunday.

We will be back in Rock Hill in March for the Carolina Nationals and the kickoff to the 2014 North American Supercross Series (BMX News will have more on that in the coming days).

Meanwhile, enjoy Kavin Bradner’s photos from Gold Cup weekend in Rock Hill. Dude was out there rain and shine getting the snaps to bring back to HQ. Props to him for a sweet set!
