USA CYCLING have announced their list of 10 riders who will represent at Manchester’s round of the 2013 UCI Supercross BMX World Cup later this month on 19/20th April. Great to see so many youngsters such as Justin posey, Felicia Stancil and Nick Koehler making the trip and mixing it up with the regulars on the World Cup circuit. Arielle Martin will make the trip also. This has to carry some bitter sweet thoughts for the Intense rider after she missed out on racing the London Olympics after a huge crash only days before the USA team were due to leave for the games. Arielle is one gutsy rider and we look forward to seeing her race on these shores…..
