    Strombergs and Reade reclaim their BMX world titles

    Pietermaritzburg 31 July 2010 -- It was a case of call back the past when Latvian Maris Strombergs and Briton Shanaze Reade reclaimed the UCI BMX World Championship men's and women's titles respectively in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday -- but the hero for the partisan South African crowd was men's runner up Sifiso Nhlapo.

    Strombergs was without doubt the deserved winner and he was never headed in a frenetic day of racing that saw a sprinkling of thrills and spills on the purpose-built track at the Royal Showgrounds.
