|BMXMANIA.COM PHOTO OF THE DAY!|
Today's BMX Mania Photo Of The Day is a sad story for BOX Components, Marc Willers/NZL who is pictured here, the victim of some real bad luck.
At the UCI BMX Worlds in Zolder, Belgium last weekend, the rain came in hard and early, and the UCI decided to cut the motos to 'one lap, no crap' to shorten the race due to the inclement weather.
Marc was motorin' along in qualifying postion when Steven Cisar/USA lost control in the second straight pro section causing his bike to hit Marc and sending Willers in to a High Flying detour over the Pro Doubles.
The whole process eliminated Marc from advancing to the elimination rounds, but resulted in a pretty spectacular photo! Photo by Jerry Landrum/BMXmania.com

2016 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup schedule unveiled
|In the Olympic year the UCI
BMX Supercross World Cup will host an
exciting five stop tour. The best BMX athletes will race
three UCI BMX SX races before the
Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and two
races in the USA to finish up the year 2016.
For the first time Santiago Del Estero will welcome the BMX athletes for the first race of the season. Santiago Del Estero is a racer's favorite because of the many fans that show up at this World Cup and it's the fourth time the World Cup series visits Argentina.
The indoor BMX facility Manchester Cycling Centre has hosted the first race on the World Cup season from 2013 to 2015. Each time it was Liam Phillips (GBR) who came out on top and will be the man to beat once again when the circuit returns to the only indoor BMX Supercross facility in April.
Papendal has been on the World Cup calendar for five years and in 2016 the wide open track at the Olympic training centre will be modified from the end of the second straight onwards for new challenges.
After the Olympic break in August, Rock Hill will use round four as a true test event as they’re gearing up for the 2017 UCI BMX World Championships. BMX Supercross racing on the American East Coast will continue two weeks later as the season comes to a close on the brand new BMX Supercross track in Sarasota which is currently going through pre-construction stage.
Sarasota BMX recently celebrated its 40th year of BMX and is one of the original BMX tracks in the USA.
2016 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup schedule
26-27 March 2016* - UCI BMX SX World Cup Round 1: Santiago Del Estero (ARG)
9-10 April 2016 - UCI BMX SX World Cup Round 2: Manchester (GBR)

|TORONTO / U.S. Olympic Committee News Release --
Felicia Stancil overcame a crash-filled women’s BMX
final and came out on top amidst a field that included
an Olympic champion and world champion to win
Team USA’s first
gold medal at the 2015 Pan
American Games Saturday in Toronto.
Meanwhile, Nic Long claimed bronze in an equally chaotic men’s race.
Stancil, 20, brimmed with elation and disbelief as she greeted her family and snapped pictures with fans.
The Chicago-area native began training at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, California, after turning pro a year ago. She’s now regularly competing against some of the world’s best after spending most of her young career against those her own age.
“I think this is my first big win against the big girls,” she said.
Stancil crossed the finish line in 41.647 seconds after a massive pile-up in the first turn that claimed half the field, including teammate Alise Post, who had finished second, second and first in her three semifinal heats.
Post was not credited a disqualification and finished sixth, 40 seconds behind Stancil.
“A crash can just happen right in front of you, and you’re going 30 miles per hour,” Stancil said. “You just have to think really fast and be lucky. We’re in motors all day battling. They’re all fast here. It stinks for them and I wish them the best in the next race.”
In the men’s final, Long won bronze in a similarly chaotic finish after third-place finisher Carlos Ramirez of Colombia was disqualified in an off-course steer that also claimed Team USA’s Connor Fields.
Fields, one of the world’s top-ranked cyclists, was among the favorites heading into the medal race after sweeping all three of his heats in the quarterfinals.
“It’s BMX – it can happen at any time,” said Canada’s Tory Nyhaug, who claimed gold. “Nothing is for sure in this sport, if I’ve learned anything.”
Regardless of their final finish, all four U.S. athletes led the way throughout the qualifying rounds of the BMX competition in Toronto.
Stancil credited the team’s success to the Olympic Training Center, home of a state-of-the-art BMX facility where all four that competed on Saturday train. The track undergoes a regular overhaul to adapt to the forecasted venue that will be used in the upcoming Olympics.
“They just changed it up, so the track in Chula is actually going to be harder than the Rio track,” Stancil said. “It’ll be good because a lot of countries are training on our facility right now. It’ll be good because if you can do that well, if you can get that track as good as you can, the Olympic track will seem easy.”
