LIMA. The freestyle BMX debuted this day in a Pan American Games with golds for Daniel Dhers, of Venezuela and Hanna Roberts, of the USA, in a competition in which the favorites, professionals of the BMX world and extreme sport, did not disappoint.
Dhers, gold multi-medalist in the X Games on several occasions (2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013) had an irregular competition, with a poor first jump of just 50.33 points and an extraordinary 88.50 that put him in The top of the podium.
Behind him was the Argentine José Torres, who had a similar behavior. Just 46 points in his first jump and a remarkable 87.17 in his second attempt.
Justin Dowell, gold in the World Cycling World Championship in the BMX mode that was played last year in China, was the most regular and scored a first jump of 84.33.
That result was by far the highest in the first round and smelled of gold, especially when he made an even better jump in his second attempt (85.17), but everything was useless in the reaction of Dhers and Torres.
