London 2012 Cycling BMX - Connor Fields
19 year old BMX racer Connor Fields is America's best hope to bring the Olympic BMX gold medal to the land where BMX was created. Yeah, that's right - Latvia is the reigning gold medal winner:
“My first impression?” Coach Herrera said of Fields, “A cocky, young punk with skills to match. And he still races that way.”
1. He almost quit the sport after a knee injury in 2010.
2. He has already won 3 BMX World Cup races this season.
