We are only a few weeks away until the Rio Olympics! Not sure about you, but I’m super excited! BMX racing is still a relatively young sport, which only became a medal sport at the 2008 Olympics. Since then, the top female medallists include Anne-Caroline Chausson and Mariana Pajon with a gold medal each, and Sarah Walker with silver. Within the top three, Mariana Pajon is the only competing racer – will she break the gold medal tie?

The numbers between competing women to men is half, with only 16 women in total competing vs the 32 men. This includes:

– Alise Post (United States)
– Brooke Crain (United States)
– Lauren Reynolds (Australia)
– Caroline Buchanan (Australia)
– Mariana Pajon (Columbia)
– Amanda Carr (Thailand)
– Laura Smulders (Netherlands)
– Merle Van Benthem (Netherlands)
– Elke Vanhoof (Belgium)
– Manon Valentino (France)
– Stefany Hernández (Venezuela)
– Yaroslava Bondarenko (Russia)
– Simone Christensen (Denmark)
– María Gabriela Díaz (Argentina)
– Nadja Pries(Germany)
– Priscilla Carnaval (Brazil)
