Originally from Argentina, yet now an official American citizen - with a lovely wife and son at home at his cozy home in Costa Mesa, California - Ssquared's Cristian Becerine has accomplished the American Dream.
Already with three No.1 Vet Pro cups on his fireplace mantle, the rider/coach who is so well-known for his killer starts that he is called "Dr.Holeshot" was out to earn a fourth Championship in 2016.
Coming into Tulsa, Becerine already had a strong points-lead, and ultimately - it would've taken a feast, famine or one of those infamous Tulsa earthquakes, to keep Cristian from capturing his fourth title (making it the second time that he has accomplished the feat of 2-in-a-row). Becerine, who helps train many of the top Pros and most up-and-coming Amateurs in BMX is a living example of that BMX fountain of Youth. He keeps having birthdays, but somehow does not seem to slow down any as he nears his late-30's. In Tulsa, nobody could catch the Factory Ssquared rider and a fourth title was clenched.
