Corben Sharrah posts fourth in the Supercross final on a tough day for Team USA
The day was plagued with bad weather and long rain delays which resulted in less-than-optimal track conditions.
After the motos, four Americans moved onto the quarterfinals. Tough luck kept Connor Fields (Henderson, Nev./Chase-Monster) and Nicholas Long (Lakeside, Calif.) out of the semis, but Sharrah and Jared Garcia (Victorville, Calif.) advanced all the way to the men's main event.
Right out of the gate, two-time Olympic gold medalist Maris Stromberg (LAT) took control of the main and crossed the line victorious. He was followed by Twan Van Gendt (NED) in second and Joris Daudet (FRA) in third. Sharrah placed fourth while Garcia came across in seventh.
In the final, Caroline Buchanan (AUS) dominated for the gold medal while Mariana Pajon (COL) and Manon Valentino (FRA) were second and third. Stancil crossed the line in seventh.
The BMX Supercross World Cup will take a break until Sept. 6-7 when it resumes with round four in Argentina. The World Cup finale will then be held at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., Sept. 26-27. For more information on the BMX Supercross World Cup, click here.
