When was the first year you got yourself a BMX license to race? Felicia Stancil: 4 years old. My dad used to race BMX, so I started young!
From the very beginning was the goal for you to become an Olympian? Felicia Stancil: In the beginning I loved BMX because I got to travel the world and met so many friends within the sport. I believe I was 13 years old when I saw BMX racing during its Olympic debut in 2008. I thought it was amazing that my sport became an Olympic sport, but it didn’t become more of a reality that I could compete on that level until I was Junior Pro racing down the 8m. Once that began, I decided to only focus on BMX since I was involved in many sports growing up.
BMX Racing has changed from your early years to now. What are the biggest changes for you?
