Had some time to kill between the last USA BMX National in Louisville and the World Cup in Bogota, Colombia.

SUPA-X Handlebar It’s no secret that the 31.8mm oversize standard is stiffer than the traditional 22.2mm used in the past. With quite a few brands now offering 31.8 as their default option for adult riders, we wanted to take the concept even further.

2024 UEC BMX Racing European Championships - Verona (Italy). 31 May - 2June 2024 The BMX Olympic Arena, a big and modern facility built in 2013 is regarded as one of the best in Europe and elsewhere.
