Papendal, Netherlands (May 11, 2014) -- Felicia Stancil (Lake Villa, IL/Factory GT Bicycles) won the silver medal Sunday during the second round of the 2014 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Papendal, Netherlands. Stancil and the rest of the riders fought through adverse conditions as wind and rain challenged the competitors throughout the weekend's events.
 
In the women's supercross final, Stancil finished 0.581 seconds behind Laura Smulders of the Netherlands, who crossed the line in 38.54. Stefany Hernandez of Venezuela took home the bronze medal with a time of 39.618. Also reaching Sunday's women's final was Brooke Crain (Visalia, Calif./Haro Bicycles) who came in fifth, 1.882 seconds behind Smulders.
 
The U.S. squad also had two riders qualify for the men's supercross final with Barry Nobles (Sun City, Calif./DK Bicycles) and Connor Fields (Henderson, Nev./Chase BMX) advancing through the early rounds. However, neither was able to reach the podium with Nobles placing fifth and Fields coming in eighth in the finals. Australia's Sam Willoughby took the gold medal with a time of 39.317 seconds, ahead of Twan van Gendt of the Netherlands and Liam Phillips of Great Britain.
 
In addition to Nobles and Fields, American Steven Cisar (Altadena, Calif./Avent Bombshell) also reached the semifinal heats, but was unable to advance. Corben Sharrah (Tucson, Ariz./Haro) and Jared Garcia (Victorville, Calif./SupercrossBMX.com) were ousted in the quarterfinal round, while David Herman (Wheat Ridge, Colo./ Free Agent/Rockstar) was eliminated in the 1/8 finals.
