Announcing TEAM USA for the 2016 BMX World Championships

Filed under General on March 31, 2016 | Comment(s)

Reigning World Champions Ty Beadle (10 Challenge Boys) and Olivia Armstrong (16 & Under Challenge Girls Cruiser) will be the only two returning champions for Team USA.  In all, there are 12 riders who earned World numbers in 2015 that will be looking to defend or better their number in Colombia.

These 12 riders will be joined by 120 others who qualified to represent the United States at the 2016 UCI BMX World Championships in Medellin, Colombia.  In all, the United States will have 161 entries into the challenge classes in Medellin.  This will be the largest number of entries that the United States has sent to a BMX World Championship held outside of North America.

Racers qualified by earning a world number in 2015 at the World Championships in Belgium or by qualifying through one of the two World Qualifying races held in February in the United States.  The qualifying races were held in Phoenix, Arizona and Oldsmar, Florida.  Riders who did not qualify through these processes were able to petition and were selected based on the established criteria.  

With a good group of returning riders and a lot of riders with NAG experience, Team USA is looking to set the tone as the 2017 World Championships make a return to the United States.   Riders earning a 1 through 8 in Colombia, will automatically qualify for the 2017 event in Rock Hill South Carolina.
