The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) today publishes the calendar for the 2023 UCI BMX Racing World Cup.
The 2023 UCI BMX Racing World Cup will kick off on the weekend of 3-4 June with two rounds in Sakarya. The Turkish city, located some 150km east of Istanbul, hosted the last four rounds of the 2021 UCI BMX Racing World Cup over two weekends.
Papendal (Netherlands), host of the 2021 UCI BMX Racing World Championships and a traditional venue for the UCI World Cup, will once again welcome the world's best BMX racing athletes for the third and fourth rounds of the 2023 UCI World Cup.
A few weeks after the UCI BMX Racing World Championships, taking place as part of the inaugural UCI Cycling World Championships in Glasgow and across Scotland (Great Britain), the riders will be back on the UCI BMX Racing World Cup circuit, where the fifth and sixth rounds will be held at a new venue: Sarrians, in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region of France, not far from the famous Mont-Ventoux. The town hosted rounds of the UEC BMX Racing European Cup from 2019 to 2021.
The final four rounds of the 2023 UCI BMX Racing World Cup will be held in Santiago del Estero, Argentina. The series will make its return to a city that hosted one or more rounds of the series each year from 2013 to 2019.
