Colorado Springs, Colo. (October 2, 2007)—The roster for the fourth and final round of the 2007 UCI BMX World Cup in Frejus, France on October 13-14 has been released. USA Cycling announced today that a total of 17 of the country’s best riders will be headed to the south of France to represent the United States of America.


The 2007 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup #4 is the seventh of 17 events that factor into USA Cycling’s 2008 BMX Rankings – the primary factor which determines the Olympic Long Team for the 2008 Games in Beijing.

Six elite riders will represent the U.S. in the women’s competition, including the top five athletes in the USA Cycling 2008 BMX Rankings. The number one rider in the rankings Jill Kintner (Seattle, Wash.) will lead the team in Frejus along with the second through fifth-ranked women, Amanda Geving (Largo, Fla.), Stephanie Barragan (Montclair, Calif.), Kimberly Hayashi (Chandler, Ariz.) and Arielle Martin (Clarksville, Tenn.). Alise Post (St. Cloud, Minn.) is the only junior rider who will help represent the U.S. in the race against the world's best, at only age 16.




The Frejus stop is the final World Cup of the season following the season-opener in Madrid in April, the official Olympic Test Event in Beijing in August and the Salt Lake City Supercross World Cup last month.




Competition begins Saturday, October 13 with the time trial qualifying rounds followed by the finals on Sunday, October 14.
