USA dominate at the 4X finals

Lopes and Kintner put the Stars and Stripes on top

The finals of the 4X world championship took place on Friday night and Brian Lopes stormed the men's race to take the gold, followed by Frenchman Romain Saladini and Jurg Meijer from the Netherlands.

Crowd favourite and 4X title contender Cedric Gracia had a bad fall in his quarter-final race.

In the women's event, Jill Kintner (USA) was too good for Anneke Beerten (Netherlands) and Melissa Buhl (USA), giving America a total of two gold medals and a bronze in the 4X event.
