In the current context of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, which also affects the United States, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) regrets to announce the necessity to postpone the 2020 UCI BMX World Championships which were initially to take place at the North Houston Bike Park in the United States from 26 to 31 May. The UCI fully supports the decision taken by the organisers of the Harris County - Houston Sports Authority, the authorities of the city of Houston, in the state of Texas, and of Harris County. In view of the current health situation, holding the UCI BMX World Championships, preceded by the amateur Challenge class, would have potentially posed a risk to the health of the riders, all those involved in the event and the fans.
Regarding the qualification process for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, the UCI BMX World Championships in Houston were initially to be the last event on the UCI International BMX Calendar offering qualification points, since the qualifying period was due to end on 1st June. In the context of the coronavirus and in the interests of safety and sporting fairness, the UCI recalls - as announced on March 15 - that it asked the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to stop the qualification period retroactively as of 3 March, given that until this date, no nation had been prevented from going to events because of the pandemic.

The annual review of the rules is one of the most important processes USA BMX conducts each year. Throughout the year we collect a number of ideas and feedback from our membership and tracks. These rule suggestions are then carefully analyzed by our staff with decades of BMX experience. While we’re always working to implement policies and programs to grow our sport (like the BMX Racing League), we also shoulder the responsibility of being the stewards of BMX in North America.
Below you’ll find short explanations of rule changes for 2019. As always, please refer to the 2019 USA BMX Rule Book for exact wording of the rules.
Because of the quality of event and outstanding competition, more and more international riders are coming to USA BMX national events. As such, some clarification needed to be added for these riders. We have added the following:
Foreign amateur riders (UCI Challenge Class) are NOT required to purchase an amateur membership but are required to complete a membership application. That rider will be able to compete for the award of the day, and will NOT receive any ranking points. Should a foreign rider wish to compete for any USA BMX ranking program, they must purchase a full membership.
