British Cycling has announced that
A BMX track at Birmingham's Perry Park will be renovated for riders to practice and compete at a top-class facility.
Ian Drake, CEO at British Cycling, commented: “The event will present a great opportunity for people to engage with BMX on their doorstep and will prompt a significant investment into the discipline through the development of world-class facilities.
“Ultimately, it’s about encouraging youngsters to get on their bike and creating a lasting legacy. I am confident the continued success of our athletes will help us do just that by inspiring new generations of BMX riders for many years to come.”
UCI President, Pat McQuaid, said: “I am confident that, with the expertise and the enthusiasm of British Cycling and all other partners involved in this great project, we will offer a fantastic edition of the Championships to the worldwide BMX community.”
