BMX Freestyle Park was recognized as an Olympic discipline by the IOC in 2017 and has seen rapid development since then. Some of the best BMX riders will now meet for an exclusive show event at EUROBIKE 2021. For this purpose, an imposing ramp is being built in the action area, which has also been used at world championships and which leaves nothing to be desired. At the end of the day, the “Lord of the Lake” is awarded to those who pull off the toughest tricks in the “Best Trick” session.
The free practice starts on Thursday and there are three half-hour show sessions on Friday and Saturday.

So there will be a lot of action in every session, after all, the field of riders is very top-class and the format allows you to concentrate on very difficult and risky tricks.
Rider field: Paul Thölen, Tom van den Bogaard, Timo Schulze, Tobias Freigang, Evan Brandes, Dean Florian, Jan Mihaly, Sikharin Supanmart.

Since the start of the season, Hurricane Group has been motived to reconnect with FISE's initial mission of bringing together riders and fans to celebrate action sports and the values that unite them. FISE Montpellier was intended as a real urban sports party where everyone is invited, from Amateurs to Pros, and including the many spectators that make the atmosphere at this iconic festival so special. With the current sanitary situation and many restrictions, which would drastically limit the number of people able to attend the event, it is no longer possible to meet our ambitions for the festival. Without the crowds of enthusiasts and international riders , no format envisaged can recreate what has ensured the success of FISE Montpellier since 1997.
Faced with this, the organization is forced to cancel the September edition of FISE Montpellier 2021.
