Quote from Jaime Staff, BMX Performance Director, USA Cycling:

“We have a great team this year heading to Zolder, Belgium. We have some of the regulars like Alise Willoughby, Felicia Stancil, Corben Sharrah and Connor Fields who will be looking to contend for some podium places, then we have some really exciting and young talent in the Junior Women who will be looking to make a name for themselves on the international stage and then we have one junior male (all USA qualified based off 2018 Nations ranking) Cameron Wood, who we think will be very competitive in the class.

Thanks to USA BMX creating a Junior class in 2019, we are on schedule to have maximum quota of Junior start spots earned for 2020 when the World Championships will be on home soil, in Houston, Texas.

It’s really encouraging to see so many young athletes come through the system and with so much talent and gives us plenty to work with beyond Tokyo 2020 as we build towards Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028”
