The previous round of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup was held in Aigle, Switzerland back in June, where Robert De Wilde/Staats (Netherlands) grabbed the 1st place podium spot in front of Cristian Becerine/Crupi (Argentina) and Randy Stumpfhauser/GT-Hyundai (USA).

The flyin’ Dutchman, De Wilde surely seems to enjoy these super-technical BMX tracks, since he also won the 2003 UCI BMX Supercross, and must be considered the favourite coming into the San José race. Although he will have stiff competition from Randy Stumpfhauser GT-Hyundai, the newly crowned 2005 UCI BMX World Champion — Bubba Harris/Redline (USA), Mike Day/Staats (USA) and 75 other hungry Pro riders gunning for the BMX SX title at the prestigious Toyota Challenge Dew Action Sports Tour.
