From 7-11 November the second UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Championships will take place in Chengdu, China. It will be an event where also Olympic qualifying points will be given out. This process starts on 1 November 2018 and will be an exciting qualification period to follow. For this year's UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Championships a limited number of riders can participate. The UCI released the info which you can find below.
Following the integration of the BMX Freestyle Park discipline into the UCI and the start of the Olympic Qualification period for the 2020 Olympic Games, the UCI has decided to set a participation quota by nation for the 2018 UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Championships, which will be held during the 2018 UCI Urban Cycling World Championships in Chengdu, China. This will allow the most active nations in BMX Freestyle Park the ability to be well represented, while still giving all countries the ability to send a minimum of 1 rider in each category. This will also ensure that the number of entries will remain at a level that allows the event to be completed in the time available.
Qualification Ranking by Nation The quota available to be earned by each nation will be decided through the creation of a Qualification Ranking by Nation for the 2018 season. For future seasons, this will be adapted based upon the development of the UCI International Freestyle Calendar. For the 2018 season, in both the Men Elite

Monster Energy congratulates Ben Wallace for his flawless showing at the first ever Nitro World Games park event and Monster Army’s Brian Fox on his Best Trick victory. Wallace’s well-rounded approach to the unique bowl made his runs stand out among the best in the world, while Fox put body and bike on the line in the 20-minute jam event. A private event at a brand new facility nestled north of San Diego, the inaugural Nitro World Games event brought out the best riders in the world looking for their portion of the $300,000 prize purse. But it wouldn’t be a quick road, as Ben would have to battle his way through Quarter and Semi Finals to even have a shot at walking away with a trophy and some cash.
Wallace was on point the whole way through, combining everything—big tricks, boosted airs, speed, unique lines, and technical tricks—in his runs time and time again. He kicked off each run with a massive lookback transfer into a vert quarter, but he upped the level in his very last run in Finals to seal the third place finish.
From that very first transfer Wallace kept the speed going through a unique line that seemed impossible to everyone watching. Stylish and boosted one-footed X-ups, toboggans, and no-handers filled each wall, a different huge transfer with a tailwhip, and then cutting an unreal line to a flair across the longest quarter in the park. A double tail-whip over the box, an alley-oop lookback, a whip over the triangle spine, and an insane double tail-whip pocket air were the remaining bangers of his run.
