UPDATED – February 6, 2013
Dates changed, and one event was dropped form the 2013 schedule. The dates below are current as of February 6, 2013.
As part of the UCI Management Committee meeting in Salzburg, Austria, the governing body released the calendar 2013 BMX Supercross World Cup dates.
The way that the schedule works, you are actually seeing events which straddle the 2013 and 2014 seasons. The events after the Auckland World Championships are part of the 2014 season–just as the Olympic Games and the Abbotsford, Canada event in 2012 are part of the 2013 season.
Calendar 2013 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup – Schedule (Updated 2/6/13)
April 19-20 – Manchester, England
May 10-11 – Santiago Del Estero, Argentina
June 15-16 – Papendal, Netherlands
September 27-28 – Chula Vista, CA USA
So, it’s good to see that it is still only a handful of events each year. Also neat to see new destinations popping up on the calendar, with stops in Argentina and the British National Cycling Center in Manchester.
The season finale will bring the tour back in Chula Vista for a romp on the London replica track. Hard to believe that the London Games will be more than a year in the rearview by that time.
The events are still slated for two days, and we have been getting more dribbles of information about the time trials situation for next year. But UCI has not made an official announcement on this yet, so we’ll keep it to “sources say.”
Sources say that the time trials will go on, as they always have, but that a certain number of ranked athletes in both the mens and womens classes, will be “safe” (automatically qualified for the Saturday race day). The rest of the group will qualifying, via time trials, as before. No word on whether the Superfinal will remain, or go the way of the Dodo.
