Team USA Named for the 2018 Baku Worlds

The 2018 UCI BMX World Championships are coming up quick–practice starts THIS SUNDAY, June 3…so get ready for the flurry of social media posts from far-flung points on the globe, as BMXers make their way to Baku, Azerbaijan. Elite racing has a bit more time on the calendar, with their practice starts next Thursday, with Elite racing topping-off the week-long event on Friday and Saturday.

We have been waiting to hear which Elites would be representing Team USA in Baku, and got some word on that over the weekend. Here’s what the roster looks like:

Junior Women
Stephani Morin
Dena Dawson

Junior Men
Bryant White
Jesse Welch

Elite Women
Alise Post-Willoughby
Mika Shaw
Dani George
Brooke Crain

Elite Men
Corben Sharrah
Connor Fields
Nic Long
Jared Garcia

As y’ll know, Team USA has two rainbow jerseys going to Baku, having won both the Elite Women and Elite Men classes last year in Rock Hill (by Alise Post and Corben Sharrah, respectively). We look forward to seeing those come back to the “Nifty Fifty” when it’s all said and done.
