This year for the first time ever FISE Montpellier goes fully digital. 7 Sports, 12 Disciplines and 46 Categories will feature in this unprecedented contest. Whether in BMX, Skateboard, Roller, Wakeboard, Parkour, Breaking or Scooter, the 2000+ athletes who usually attend the event, are instead invited to participate by submitting videos to the e-fise.com/montpellier web platform which has been specially developed for this experience.
Urban Sports communities are already familiar with video contests, however this is the first time ever that so many disciplines have been gathered together in a digital project of this scale. International federations such as UCI, World Skate, FIG and WDSF have confirmed their support and many public and
We've added flyers of events happening in 2020. Some are being held indoors but not all of them. Due to the Covid-19 virus a lot of them have been postponed to August/September 2020. Anything before that will most likely be off. Check before you make any plans. If you have 2020 event dates, if you've got something going, send us the info or better, add the event yourself.Add your event to the FATBMX Event calendar so more people will get to know about your race or contest or jam that you're putting on. We're here to spread the love but you figure out yourself where you need to go. Contact the event organizers before you head over. Times/dates might have changed and we take no responsibility for that. Get together and enjoy BMX, the best thing in the world. 2020 Flyers inside as well as the 2020 event dates.
Nothing else to do!? Get out there and have some fun. Meet new people, visit new places, take some pics for your instagram, pull new tricks, become a better person and maybe win something along the way. Lots has changed or is changing so double check and keep us posted. It's a crazy world we live in at the moment.
With communities and tracks across America slowly reopening, USA BMX is working hard to confirm our originally scheduled events for 2020. As you can imagine, this is no easy task. We continue to work daily to assist local tracks in reopening, and currently less than a third are operating at some capacity. We are also rescheduling postponed national series events while navigating ever evolving guidelines. In some cases we are going to the extreme measure of finding tracks not previously on the schedule that can host an event. With that being said, we know your questions center around the return of the pro series. Unfortunately, restarting the pro series at this time is an impossible task considering these unprecedented circumstances.
Here are the challenges:
-Host sites are slow to confirm their ability to host races as originally planned. So while we'd love to say the pro series events on the schedule will happen, we just don't know. -International travel bans limit some of our usual pro participants. -The financial commitment to offer standard pro purses runs counter to our current focus of bringing back our employees who remain furloughed. -Our Pro Series sponsor GoPro has canceled their sponsorship for 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis. This not only eliminates the GoPro Cup Series but negatively impacts our sponsorship forecast for 2020.
In an effort to provide USA BMX women pro riders more options to compete, we have implemented a
"It is with heavy hearts that we have to close our doors after eight great years due to unforeseen circumstances (COVID-19). The Kitchen was Brett Banassiewicz's dream and we are happy to have been able to share it with you all. This skatepark was more than just a place to ride and we can’t thank you all enough for the support over the years.
To celebrate everything The Kitchen has been to all of us, come join us for one last weekend of riding May 29-31. Let’s pack this place!"
The Australian Cycling Team is pleased to announce the Athlete Memberships across all disciplines for 2020/21. In BMX, three athletes - Natalya Diehm (BMX Freestyle) and Lauren Reynolds and Izaac Kennedy (BMX Race) will receive Individual Athlete Performance Support (IAPS) memberships. The trio joins reigning world champion Brandon Loupos, 2017 world champion Logan Martin, plus Saya Sakakibara and Anthony Dean.
Caroline Buchanan (BMX Race) has not been offered a new BMX IAPS membership, however, she will receive transitional support until August 2020. Kai Sakakibara (BMX Race) is receiving support as he continues recovery and rehabilitation following a racing accident in February.
“As we continue to prepare for the resumption of racing, and ultimately the Olympics and Paralympics in 2021, the confirmation of athlete memberships gives everyone a chance to continue to sharpen their focus on their preparation and individual progress and development,” said Simon Jones, Australian Cycling Team Performance Director. “I would like to thank those team members exiting the program for their commitment to their own personal development and to the Australian Cycling Team program as a whole. “Re-entry to the program for these athletes is possible. Sometimes, stepping back and taking time away from something can be a way to move forward if their ambition and desire remain.”
After many discussions regarding how to deliver an edition of FISE World Series Montpellier that can meet the safety and security requirements needed in response to COVID-19, Hurricane Events, in consultation with our partners, has taken the decision to organize a fully digital FISE Montpellier event in 2020. Due to the impact of COVID-19, Hurricane Events had initially adapted it’s events calendar in order to hopefully take advantage of more favorable conditions this summer. Given the ongoing situation and the new measures announced by the French government on April 28th, this plan had to be revised to ensure the health and wellbeing of all festival attendees, which remains our main priority.
