More than 200 positions on the Australian team for this year’s UCI BMX World Cup in Rock Hill, USA have been accepted, and there are plenty of opportunities still available for eligible reserves in select age groups.

This year’s world championships are expected to be the biggest on record with more than 3,300 riders from 40 countries to make their way to the state of South Carolina for the event. It is also the first time in more than 15 years that the world championships have been held on USA soil.

Since letters of offer first went out, 97 males and 59 females in Challenge Classes have confirmed their place on the Aussie team, while a further 33 male and 14 female Cruiser Class positions have been accepted.

Even with a representation that far surpasses the 80 Aussies who attended the worlds in 2016, there are still 460 places available for eligible reserves. If all places were to be filled, the Australian team would swell to 663 riders.

Priority in the next round of selection will be given to those that have already submitted an expression of interest, in accordance with their satisfaction of the eligibility criteria.

Expressions of interest can still be submitted by emailing: events@bmxaustralia.com.au

Those offered a place in the second round of selections are asked to confirm their position by this Thursday, 5pm AEST.

Please see below for which age groups still have positions available for this year’s world championships, and how many places are on offer.

Riders selected for championship classes will be announced at the end of this month.
