COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Olympic veterans Alise Post and Brooke Crain were joined by medal hopefuls Nic Long and Corben Sharrah on Wednesday on the U.S. team headed for the BMX world championships in Colombia next month.

Post and Crain were joined by Felicia Stancil in earning automatic nominations, while Dani George was chosen to round out of the four-rider women’s team.

Long and Sharrah were joined by Justin Posey and Jeff Upshaw on the men’s squad.

The competition in Medellin, scheduled for May 25-29, could have significant ramifications for the team the U.S. sends to the Rio Olympics in August. Up to three men and two women who place on the podium at the world championships will earn automatic nominations for the Summer Games.
