The course                                                                             

Built in 2013, Verona’s Olympic Arena BMX track is the first world and Olympic standard facility for BMX racing in Italy and the only one of its kind existing in south-central Europe.

The parallel challenge and supercross tracks on share two berms but, uniquely, the penultimate turn for the supercross riders must be reached by jumping clear of the challenge track’s raised bend.
