In the olympic year the Games are the biggest event. It turned out to be an exciting final race in Rio which was won by American Connor Fields. The 2016 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup started in Santiago del Estero, Argentina this year followed by the races in Manchester, England and Papendal, Netherlands. This weekend the World Cup racing is back on the program with round four being held at the million dollar BMX facility in Rock Hill followed by the finals in Sarasota, Florida on 8-9 October 2016.
Two more UCI BMX SX World Cup races are on the program for 2016. Here is a list of all time wins. Leading with 8 victories in the Men class is Maris Strombergs (LAT) while Laetitia le Corguille (FRA) and Mariana Pajon are leading the Women division with 7 wins each. Rock Hill is on the program this weekend followed by Sarasota 8-9 October. The classification will look different after those two World Cup races.

Things will be shaken up in the standings after the race in Rock Hill this weekend as some of the girls have chosen not to race. Among those are top favourites Caroline Buchanan, Mariana Pajon, Stefany Hernandez and Alise Post. This will leave the door open for the competition to move up in the 2016 overall UCI BMX SX World Cup ranking with two stops to go. Here's how the ranking looks after three of the five rounds.
