The goal of BMX Racing is simple: cross the finish line first. But that’s easier said than done with eight riders and a complex course of high speed curves, big bumps and even bigger jumps between the start gate and gold medal glory.

How it works:

The single lap 400m course at the Glasgow BMX Centre has been specially built to test the top speeds, track skills and racing smarts of the world’s best BMX racers.

The event takes place in four phases:

  • In Round 1, the top 4 finishers progress to Qualifying. 
  • The bottom 4 get a “Last Chance”, with only the top 2 moving on.
  • In Qualifying, the top 4 out of 8 progress progress to the Final.
  • In the Final, medals are up for grabs.

Races happen in 30-40 second sprints of acceleration, adrenaline, close calls and collisions. Track position is paramount as everyone fights for the fastest racing line and riders have to be bold if they want to take the gold. 

It’s edge-of-your-saddle stuff that’ll captivate the crowds at the Glasgow BMX Centre from the first race to the final. Don’t miss it.
