PLAYERS: Arielle Martin
Olympic silver medalist Mike Day is among 10 riders chosen by USA Cycling on Monday to represent its funded team in the opening rounds of the BMX Supercross World Cup. Day is joined on the men's team by Corben Sharrah, David Herman, Connor Fields and Nic Long, who earned the bronze medal at last summer's Olympic test event. Arielle Martin and Brooke Crain, the top two finishers at the final World Cup last season, are joined by national champion Alise Post, Amanda Carr and Amanda Geving on the women's team. The World Cup season starts March 30-31 in Chula Vista, Calif. The second round is April 13-14 in Randaberg, Norway. Both events count toward the BMX nations ranking, which determines the number of starters for each country at the Summer Olympics. The U.S. men and women are currently positioned to send a full contingent of riders to London.
