Niek Kimmann has the second shortest odds and for good reason. The Dutch Cyclist is a three-time UCI BMX World Championships medalist with two golds and a silver.
He has 24 career starts in the UCI BMX Supercross with 12 wins, 15 podiums, and 2 championships. Kimmann is poised to have a big performance in Tokyo as he has only continued to grow since the 2016 Olympics where he placed 7th.
The BMX event will kick off on Thursday, July 29 at 10 am EST. Olympic betting fans can place action at legal sports betting sites whether Fields defends his gold medal.
