Frieswyk takes Aussie BMX title
Posted on May 03 2015
Unit's Corey Frieswyk secured his second national title in three years in treacherous conditions at Brisbane's Sleeman complex, host of the Subaru BMX National Championships.
The Queenslander kept himself in contention until the final sequence of turns and was able to pounce when his rivals fell on a greasy track.
“I can’t believe it really. It’s happened again. I’m speechless,” Frieswyk said.
“I guess there was a lot of luck in that race but you had to play smart with the corners being a bit wet and with the guys just going so hard maybe they forgot what was going on and slid out.
“Myself and Kai (Sakakibara) tried to slip through the gap and I was the one who was lucky enough to get around the top and come out in front.
“You have to be in it to win it in this sport and any number of guys on that gate at the moment can. If you’re the Olympic silver medallist, a world champion, the newcomer coming up like I was two years ago when I won it, you’re a chance.
“This time I was a little bit more confident I was in they’re a little bit better and things play out how they do.”
Unit congratulates Corey and his Rival Racing team on the title.
