BMX Radrennen neu bei Olymp. Spielen in Tokio

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Die Olymp. Sommerspiele 2020, die Spiele der XXXII Olympiade, werden in Tokioi, Japan, durchgeführt. Das BMX Radrennen besteht aus zwei Medaillen-Disziplinen - BMX Rennen und das neu aufgenommene BMX Freestyle sind Teil des Olympischen Programms und zum ersten Mal bei den Olympischen Spielen in Tokio, 2020.

BMX racers launch themselves from a gate atop an 8m-high, 35-degree start hill, battling it out along an approximately 400m-long course. They can reach 60km/h while riding over alternating jumps and around banked corners.

Freestyle riders will participate in two 60-second runs and will be given a score based on their performance for each run, with riders ranked based on their average score. The highest-scoring rider will go last in the final. Tricks include backflips, tailwhips, barspins and the superman which makes the discipline exciting to watch.

BMX competitions (racing and freestyle) will be held at the Ariake Urban Sports Park.
