How the 2017 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup works

A new format for the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup was introduced for 2017, with six rounds of racing across three weekends.

Papendal in the Netherlands hosted the first two rounds before rounds three and four in Zolder, Belgium with the final two rounds taking place this weekend in Argentina.

As each venue now hosts two rounds of racing, time trials have been removed as have the moto rounds.

Each day now sees a straight knockout format from round one (1/32 stage) through to the main finals. Any riders knocked out in the opening round go into the ‘last chance’ heats for one more opportunity to make the 1/16 finals.

Riders are awarded ranking points based on their finishing position in each round - the rider with the most points overall is crowned UCI BMX Supercross World Cup champion.
