All four U.S. BMX riders advance to semifinals

U.S. rider Kyle Bennett is attended to after a crash in a men's BMX cycling quarter-final at the Beijing Games on Wednesday.

Bicycle Motocross (BMX) made its Olympic debut on Wednesday at the Loashan venue in Beijing, and each of the four U.S. riders advanced to Thursday's semifinals.

Here is Kevin Baxter's story about Kyle Bennett, Mike Day (Santa Clarita) and Donny Robinson (Napa) and Jill Kintner. Bennett suffered a dislocated shoulder during one ride but is expected to compete on Thursday.

It's great to see a sport born in Southern California go full circle and become an Olympic sport. The icing on the cake is that half of the American BMX team was also born in California. I only wish they would have treated the women's BMX with as many positions as the men's.
