Tickets for the UCI BMX Supercross, which last year sold out in record time, are now on sale.
Returning to Manchester in April 18th and 19th 2015, riders will first of all race to qualify for Sunday’s finals in three rounds of motos. The top ranked 16 men and 8 women will then race the clock in the Time Trials Superfinals.
Speaking on the ticket announcement and new event format, Jonny Clay, British Cycling’s cycle sport and membership director, said: “The UCI BMX Supercross World Cup attracts a strong family audience. In moving the event to a Saturday and Sunday we hope to better accommodate their needs and provide fans from across the UK with the opportunity to watch the best BMX riders on the planet compete in Manchester.
“Following what has been an impressive year for the Great Britain BMX team, we’re expecting a strong response to tomorrow’s ticket release. We encourage fans wanting to secure their place and be a part of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup action to get their tickets early.”
The Manchester spectacle is the opening event in a five-stop global series which will also see rounds held in Papendal (Netherlands), Engelholm (Sweden), Santiago del Estero (Argentina) and Rock Hill, South Carolina (USA). It is the third time the city and world-renowned BMX venue will play host to the international event having staged successful events in 2013 and 2014.
