Americans Connor Fields and Felicia Stancil outperformed the rest of the world in the time trials at the fourth and final round of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Chula Vista, Southern California.
Fields shows big race temperament
USA's Corben Sharrah was the quickest qualifier in the first run, proving just how fast he can be in the time trials discipline. However in the Time Trial Super Final, Sharrah was beaten by the fastest man on 20-inch wheels, Connor Fields (USA). Fields once again pulled out the goods when it counts, recorded a winning time of 38.126 seconds, a fast time on the demanding and technical Chula Vista Supercross track in windy conditions. Sharrah took second with Tory Nyhaug (CAN) finishing in third.
Junior rider wins the womenâ€™s time trial
Felicia Stancil (USA) proved to be too fast for the rest of the field, pulling off a smooth run in the finals to win in a time of 39.114 seconds. With this result Stancil, who is still a junior rider, confirms her two Junior World titles (time trial and main event) won in Auckland in July. Olympic bronze medallist, Laura Smulders (NED) showed her consistency, finishing in second place. Alice Post (USA) completed the women's podium in third place.
In the womenâ€™s category, the overall UCI World Cup title will be fought out between Mariana Pajon (COL), Arielle Martin (USA) and Laura Smulders (NED). In the menâ€™s category Jelle van Gorkom (NED), Connor Fields (USA), Sylvain Andre (FRA) and Liam Phillips (GBR) are the favourites to win the 2013 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup.
