The Management Committee of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) met from 2 to 4 May in Cagliari, Sardinia (Italy). Following its approval by the Management Committee, the UCI also publishes today the full calendar for the 2024 UCI BMX Racing World Cup.
The discipline's flagship series will get underway in Rotorua, New Zealand, with two rounds, on 10 and 11 February. This will be the first time that the country - which hosted the 2013 UCI BMX Racing World Championships in Auckland - will host BMX Racing’s flagship series. Built in 2019, the current track at Rotorua BMX Club - home club of London 2012 Olympic silver medallist Sarah Walker - measures 440m and was the venue for the 2023 Oceania BMX Racing Championships. Rotorua is also known for hosting mountain bike events, most notably the discipline’s UCI World Championships in 2006.
The third and fourth rounds of the series will take place in Brisbane on 24 and 25 February. This will be a first for the Queensland capital.

The Brisbane BMX Racing track is part of the Sleeman Sports Complex, the Olympic training centre for Australian BMX Racing and track cycling specialists, as well as athletes from many other sports.
