Despite the Covid-19 pandemic the Toyota BMX Triple Challenge took place in Houston on Saturday. The set-up consisted of a big portable roll-in, two giant sets and the quarterpipe at the end. Some serious talent made it to Texas for the comp and watch the first round of the Monster Supercross event in the evening. When everything was done and dusted this is how the podium looked:

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.
