Despite its best efforts to come up with an alternative, the UCI regrets to announce that there will be no UCI World Championships in the discipline in 2020. The next World Championships will be held on 20-25 August 2021 in Papendal (Netherlands), after the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
As for the 2020 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup, the two rounds scheduled for Rock Hill (USA) are going ahead and will take place on 6-7 November.
Despite all the hard work we did with our partner Hurricane in attempting to find solutions for the 2020 season, all the rounds of the UCI BMX Freestyle Park and Flatland World Cup have been cancelled and will not be rescheduled this year.
The UCI President David Lappartient said: "Spring has been very difficult for cycling, but we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with the first road races taking place in July and the resumption of the UCI WorldTour and UCI Women's WorldTour expected in August. However, as we have always said, the restart of the season, whatever the discipline, will depend on the evolution of the health situation in the organising countries. Several competitions scheduled for the second half of the year 2020 had to be cancelled because the conditions for their good organisation were not met. This may mean that the UCI World Championships in some disciplines will not be held this year. This is a great disappointment, but the health of the athletes and all those involved in our events, or simply present at them, is our top priority."
