Jubilee, 20th edition of the Pannonian Challenge is slowly coming to an end, but before the big final day, which will truly bring the best of the world's top BMX on Sunday, the selection through the difficult qualifications must be made. From the very morning, the Osijek skate park will flood drivers on small bikes, warming up for the biggest extreme sports competition in this part of Europe. Amateurs will show their skills at 10 am, while long-awaited qualifications in BMX Elite / Pro are expected at 1.30 pm. Since this season's competition has been packed with a number of high- quality riders and regional BMX riders, the same day, in the afternoon, semifinals will be held at 6 pm, where all visitors will see only a fraction of what they expect in the big Sunday finale.
It should be noted that the 20th Pannonian Challenge follows the pulse of Osijek town, which this weekend lives sporty, so all visitors beside the skate park on the left bank of the Drava river can also look at the qualification match of the Croatian national football team against Walesa for EURO 2020.
