Sign up for UAE’s first-ever Red Bull Pump Track World Championship
If you’ve mastered the momentum of BMX and MTB riding and want to show the world your stuff, you need to get registered for this pump track showdown.
For the first-time in the region, the Red Bull Pump Track World Championship is coming to the UAE, and one of the top BMX riders will be there to lend his support.
Kicking off on Friday September 20, the competition will take place at the huge skate park, Fujairah Adventures. It’s the first sports event in the region for bike riders to compete in on an equal platform.
If you think your BMX or MTB skills are up to scratch, be sure to sign yourself up by visiting www.redbullpumptrackworldchampionship.com/register-now. Only 110 men and 110 women can enter the qualifier, so sign up, pronto.
The qualifier begins with timed runs from which the top 32 competitors will move on to the knockout heats. These heats will either be a head-to-head battle or a time trial format.
The top four men and women from each round will advance to the World Championship finals.
Not sure what a pump track is? Basically, it combines rolling jumps with banked turns, where bikers will need to complete the course in the fastest time by gaining momentum.
Just to add a little incentive, Kuwaiti BMX rider and Red Bull athlete Mansour Al Safran will be making a special appearance in Fujairah to offer his expert advice and show off his skills.
