Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) regrets to announce that the first two rounds of the 2021 UCI BMX World Cup, which should have opened the series in Stuttgart (Germany) on 8 and 9 May, have been cancelled at the request of the organisers. This is as a result of restrictions imposed by the competent authorities. Given that the first two rounds of the UCI BMX World Cup were to count towards Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification, the UCI is working to find an alternative venue for these early-season events before the end of the qualification period at the end of May.
The other rounds of the series will take place in Bogota (Colombia) on 29 and 30 May, and in Sakarya (Turkey) on 23, 24, 30 and 31 October.
The UCI thanks the organisers for their cooperation in this difficult situation, as well as the riders, National Federations, teams and all concerned parties for their understanding.
