USA BMX, the world’s largest BMX racing organization, and Woodward, the ultimate summer camp experience, welcome a partnership designed to benefit BMX racers of all ages. This collaboration will feature a dedicated BMX Racing program with four sessions in June and July at the Woodward Pennsylvania location. Woodward is dedicated to inviting the best coaches the sport offers. For two weeks in June, Olympians and World Champions Sam and Alise Willoughby will help with the BMX Racing camp on a world-class track built in 2019. Between the two, Sam has a silver medal from the 2012 London Games, Alise’s silver medal from the 2016 Rio Games, and several world championships and national titles. For the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games, Sam was Alise’s coach.
This year eight UCI BMX Racing World Cup races will be held at 3 locations. Here the Dutch riders can score important points for the UCI ranking. Two of those World Cup competitions will take place at Papendal on 11 and 12 June. This is the 10th time that the organization of a World Cup is in the hands of Papendal. A UCI BMX Racing World Cup round will be held on both Saturday 11 June and Sunday 12 June. Friday is reserved for training. A new class has also been added: 'under 23', which means that 2 extra finals (U23 men and U23 women) have been added in this class on both days. This new class offers riders the opportunity to compete in the UCI BMX Supercross series without having to race the Elite riders right away. The format is the same as that of the Elite riders.
