Sarah-Jane Nichols places 2nd at the 2024 UCI BMX World Championships

Huge congratulations to our British BMX Hall of Fame class of 2022 inductee Sarah-Jane Nichols, who continues to make British BMX history taking 2nd place at the UCI World Championships in Rock Hill over in the US this past weekend.

Let’s look a little deeper at her World Championships history.

Sarah placed 4th at the Jag World Championships in Burbank, California in 1983.

Three years later, we all know what happened at the IBMXF 1986 Slough World Championships with Sarah’s legendary race coming from last to first in the final to become World Champion in front of an amazing home crowd.

And now 38 years after getting back into racing less than two years ago, Sarah-Jane placed 2nd at Rock Hill, South Carolina UCI BMX World Championships in the 40 and Over Women’s Cruiser Class, racing women 10+ years her junior. An amazing result especially being out of the sport for over three decades.

Take a bow, Sarah-Jane Nichols.
