In line with the new voting system introduced this year to increase the number of members on the UCI Athletes’ Commission, applications are now open to candidates from the BMX Freestyle discipline. Elections for the representatives – one man and one woman for each discipline – will be held during the UCI Urban Cycling World Championships in Chengdu, China, from November 8 to 12. Under the new voting system, not only will the number of athletes on the UCI Athletes’ Commission increase, but there will be men-women parity across all disciplines. All representatives on the Commission will be elected for a term of four years, from the 2017 UCI Congress to the 2021 UCI Congress. To be eligible, candidates must be currently active in the sport or have retired within the last four years before the election date.
Further information, including the eligibility criteria and the application process, can be found here.
The final list of candidates, as well as more information about the voting procedure (exact venues and timetable) will be published on the UCI website on November 6th, before the UCI Urban Cycling World Championships.
Any athletes participating in the BMX Freestyle competition in Chengdu will be eligible to vote for one
In a fast moving world we can sometimes get lost. With so much happening on the BMX Freestyle side in 2017 with multiple events happening on each weekend, it's nice to enter a quiet month. But 2017 isn't over yet and November has two bigger events happening with the UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup Finals taking place in Chengdu, China 3-5 November followed by the first UCI Urban Cycling World Championships in the same city (but different location) on 10-12 November. Daniel Dhers (VEN) and Hannah Roberts (USA) are leading the World Cup at the moment and will do everything within their power to do well and seal the deal in Chengdu on the first weekend of November.
DIG BMX - In the Cut: Territores # 1 - China. Back in October of 2016 we started a new DIG travel project. For the first one we teamed up with official partner brands WETHEPEOPLE BMX and Eclat BMX and selected two riders from each brand to accompany us to a city none of us had ever been to or even knew about. Ningbo is about 2.5 hours south of Shanghai in China and had more than enough good spots and interesting locals to make for an epic trip.
