US will host 2017 BMW world championships

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) USA Cycling says the 2017 BMX world championships will be held in the United States.

The event will be hosted by the still-under-construction BMX Supercross track in Rock Hill, South Carolina. The track is expected to open later this year. Three-thousand amateur and 300 pro racers are expected to compete from July 26-30, 2017.

The United States last hosted the event in 2001. Since then, BMX has been added to the Olympics, making its debut in 2008.
