SCHEEPERS AND GAROYAN WIN THE BMX JUNIOR EUROPEAN TITLES

The 2018 edition of the BMX Junior and Challenge European Championships held last weekend in Sarrians (France) were a great success.

1,716 riders took part in this continental event which was raced on a new track opened last April and provided us with three days of top level technical skill. 

In the Junior category, the current World Champions triumphed in the two races: the Dutch rider Indy Scheepers and the French rider Leo Garoyan.

In the Women’s events, Scheepers won a fiercely fought battle in the final beating Eliska Bartunkova (Czech Republic) and the French rider Charlotte Morot, adding to her wins this season the European Champion jersey following her world title win just over a month ago.

In the Men’s races, great day for the French who occupied three places on the podium on 14 July and also had eight riders qualifying for the final. It was Leo Garroyan, BMX Sarrians club member, reigning World and National Champion who took first place. Watched by his fans, he beat his fellow countrymen Dylan Gobert and Hugo Marszalek.

The Elite European Championships will take place in Glasgow (Great Britain) on 10 and 11 August.
