The new UCI BMX SX World Cup season is about to kick off in Australia. With races on the program in Shepparton and Bathurst the first two weekends of February, it's going to be interesting to see who are on top. The Olympics are happening this summer and with 24 spots available in both Men and Women, it is key to get as many points in before the Olympic qualification period ends on 1 June 2020. All UCI BMX SX World Cups and the 2020 UCI BMX race World Championships in Houston will happen before 1 June making the first 5 months a hectic period for any racer chasing the Olympic dream.
The first two highest ranked nations will get to send 3 athletes to Tokyo. Nations ranked on spot 3-5 will get to send 2 racers and countries in top 6-11 will get to send 1. It gets complicated for the last spots to be filled in but the time has come that all points gained in the upcoming qualifying races are important.
This is a bit of an experiment that depends on my phone data, and it will be a bit lowfi as I move around and film the event for real, but here are (hopefully) the Qualifiers at the Toyota Triple Challenge in Anaheim 2. If this works, expect to see finals here on Saturday.
This is a video made for STF Brand @stf.brand and Lurk Co @lurkco. The riders are Michael Kohn @criminal_code, Milan Karimi @elpersianpaisa, Josh Gray @just.lurkinn, Reed @happycatbasket, and Brendan Bertolini @bertbmx.
Boneyard Skatepark has been and is the place that keeps the scene alive around our ends. Got the gang and threw this together after hours. Go and follow them on insta @boneyard_skatepark and get down there for a pedal.
One of the strongest BMX forks ever created: The Storm Fork is the result of over 3 years of laboratory testing and manufacturing refinements to create the ultimate BMX fork, fully backed by a Lifetime Guarantee.
Tons of spots, great weather, very lax law enforcement, and some of the nicest locals you'll ever meet: Athens is definitely one of the best cities in the world to visit as a street rider. Check out what the SIBMX squad got done while they were in town.
