Tickets for the Manchester round of the 2019 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup go on sale this morning, with British Cycling members able to take advantage of a 15% discount.
The competition will return to the HSBC UK National Cycling Centre for the first time in three years next spring, when the world’s best BMX riders will compete for the world cup title and Tokyo 2020 qualifying points over the weekend of April 27th and 28th.
Racing will take place on the venue’s recently-revamped track and, unlike previous events at Manchester, both days of competition will feature qualifying moto events and finals, ensuring that every spectator will see a winner crowned.
Jonathan Rigby, Commercial Director at British Cycling, said:
“This is going to be a fantastic spectacle. The BMX track at the HSBC UK National Cycling Centre has recently undergone work which will ensure the highest possible level of competition, and to have the world’s best riders on that track competing to register Olympic qualifying points will make for a great weekend of racing.
“We’re delighted to be able to offer British Cycling members a significant discount on tickets. BMX enjoys huge popularity in this country, and it’s brilliant to be able offer members of the BMX community the chance to watch the very best in the world on home soil.”
Tickets are on sale from this morning, and available to purchase from ticketmaster.co.uk/britishcycling. British Cycling members can find details of their exclusive 15% discount on their member dashboard, and the discount will be valid until October 26.
British riders have enjoyed a tremendous recent record competing on home soil. Liam Phillips won four world cup titles in a row in Manchester between 2013 and 2016, and at the most recent of those events he was joined on the podium by Kyle Evans, who himself led a British one-two at this summer’s UEC European Championships in Glasgow.
In addition to the 15% membership discount, British Cycling will be ensuring that members of the BMX community are involved in the event at every stage. The creative identity for the event was designed with the help of nine-year-old Oscar and his six-year-old brother Noah, both of whom race in the north west.
