Olympic silver medallist Sarah Walker has confirmed she will ride in the BMX World Championships in Auckland this weekend.

The New Zealander had been under an injury cloud after breaking her arm during a race in America five weeks ago and is still wearing a protective brace.

Walker says she's still not 100 percent but is still looking forward to racing in front of her home fans.

She admits she's had to lower her expectations for the race.

The elite riders have a practice round Friday, with the time trials on Saturday before the main races on Sunday.
