Box Components and the UCI have reached an agreement by which Box has been named an Official Supplier of the UCI BMX World Championships and UCI BMX Supercross World Cup for 2017 and 2018 seasons. Since 2015 Box has supplied the UCI with number plates for all athletes participating in these events, and now the relationship has been formalised to acknowledge Box's contribution to the sport.
The 2017 UCI BMX World Championships will be held in South Carolina from July 25th to July 30th. The 2017 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup consists of three events: Papendal (Netherlands, May 6-7), Zolder (Belgium, May 13-14), and Santiago del Estero (Argentina, September 16-17).
Kevin MacCuish, UCI BMX Coordinator, said, "We are very pleased with the level of support provided by Box for the UCI BMX World Championships and UCI BMX Supercross World Cup. Riders appreciate the well-designed and high-quality number plates that they provide, and it is great to have them on board."
Phil Maxwell, BMX brand manager for Box, said, "We are all about supporting BMX Racing. Box has been supporting athletes, race promoters and USA BMX since it started operations. The UCI is pushing the sport through Supercross events, and we are happy to be supplying customised number plates to them."
