Australia: Queensland teen becomes BMX World Champion

Teya Rufus and Josh Jolly of ARA Australian Cycling Team have been crowned junior women's and men's world champions at the 2024 UCI BMX Racing World Championships in Rock Hill, USA, ensuring Australia's BMX racing future.

Teya Rufus (Maryborough BMX) led the junior women's decider from start to finish. The 17-year-old got out to a near-perfect start, and despite Lily Greenough's (NZL) best efforts to catch the Queensland wonder, Rufus held on for a comfortable victory.

The world championship crown caps Rufus's spectacular 2024 UCI season, which also included winning the Under-23 Women's World Cup in her debut year, and it was evident after the race that the newly crowned world champion was still processing the outcome.

"This is such a dream, it's honestly just so insane," Rufus replied.

"I believe this is what we train for, what we want to do, but when it occurs, it's simply unbelievable. Yeah, I can't get my head around that just yet," she added.

The 2024 Paris Olympic Games are the final international event on the BMX Racing calendar, with racing scheduled for August 1-2 at the Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines BMX Stadium.
