2018 UCI BMX World Cup Schedule

2018 UCI BMX SX Schedule
Back on September 29, BMX News brought you a preview of the 2018 UCI BMX World Cup schedule. The preview has five stops, for a total of 10 scores in 2018—three in the spring and two in the fall.

One of the fall stops was here in the USA, in Oldsmar, FL. Our preview list had Oldsmar as “unconfirmed,” since it was subject to approval by the Oldsmar City Council before it could be written in proverbial pen on the schedule.

On November 21, the Oldsmar City Council voted 3-2 against hosting the World Cup event, in part due to the costs involved (said to be ~$125,000), according to reports published in local media.

The 2018 World Cup calendar, therefore, was finalized as we originally reported, but without a US stop. So, here is a reiteration of that schedule.

UCI BMX World Cup – Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France*
March 31 – April 1, 2018

UCI BMX World Cup – Papendal, Netherlands
May 5 – 6, 2018

UCI BMX World Cup – Zolder, Belgium
May 12 – 13, 2018

UCI BMX World Cup – Santiago del Estero, Argentina
September 29-30, 2018

*Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines is about 20 miles Southwest of central Paris, and a baguette’s-throw from Versailles, so some incredible sight-seeing potential on that one. A quick check of Expedia.com shows flights from JFK to CDG at only $465—cheaper than our ticket from ORD to PHX for the Winter Nats. Can you say BMX tourism?
