Looking forward to 2021, - Velosolutions, Red Bull and the UCI have decided to combine the 2020 and 2021 seasons: riders who qualify in 2020 will be eligible to participate in the 2021 Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships if they meet all other qualifying criteria. In the event of a qualifying event having different winners in 2020 and 2021, the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships will cover the cost of travel for both athletes.
Lesotho, Argentina, New Zealand and Australia have already held this year’s qualifying events, and a limited number of qualifiers will still be held in Europe in 2020. The Netherlands kicks it off with Roosendaal on 26 September and Lyon, France on 10 October. Others will follow in due course.
Further announcements about qualifying events will be made as more is learned about how the current global health crisis will impact local event and travel restrictions.
