2004 UCI BMX World Championships Valkenswaard, Netherlands July 25, 2004

Team Schwinn Pro Nate Berkheimer powers is way into the Elite men's final.

Nate Berkheimer had a great day of racing, at the UCI World Championships today. Nate looked strong all day in the moto's and as the 1/8th finals started, he looked even better. Getting through the 1/4 finals as well as the semi, Nate had a chance to take home his first World Championship title.

As the Gate fell, Nate jumped to an early lead, but was just slightly boxed out of the lead going into the 1st turn. Nate would ride a great race and finish up 4th for the day and take home his best World Championship Elite finish of his career. All this on his new Schwinn Sting Prototype frame for the 1st race!
