Talking about the event on her social media she said:

It was a rollercoaster weekend for everyone to be back at our first comp since 2019, the highs of some risks paying off in finals and the lows of watching one of your best mates and role models, Declan Brooks take a hit while he was riding so amazingly! (He’s all good now!) Proud to have represented British Cycling at the UCI BMX Freestyle world championships, now we see where to put in the work running up to Tokyo. Thankful to be coming home happy and healthy, and for the support I’ve received throughout.

UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Championships

The release reads:

Charlotte Worthington once more highlighted her Tokyo medal credentials with a bronze medal in freestyle park at the 2021 UCI Urban Cycling World Championships in Montpellier, France.

A sensational performance from Worthington. This saw her become the first woman to ever land a front flip in competition. She secured third place behind Hannah Roberts (USA) and Nikita Ducarroz (SUI). The result matched the Great Britain Cycling Team rider’s career-best performance from the 2019 championships in Chengdu, China.

Ben Wallace and Declan Brooks represented Great Britain in the men’s final, with Wallace’s score of 82.40 from his second run enough for an 8th place finish. Wallace had been on course for a higher score in his first run, starting brilliantly before a mistake at the half-way point left him with a score of 76.80.

Brooks had an excellent start, but sadly crashed out on a double backflip in the latter stages. He regained consciousness in the arena and was taken immediately for tests, and is now recovering.

Logan Martin (Aus) was the overall winner with an incredible 94.70, ahead of Daniel Sandoval (USA) in second and Marin Rantes (CRO) in third
