TOKIO 2020

Eventos de ciclismo BMX en los Olímpicos de Tokio

July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Los Juegos Olímpicos de Verano 2020, los Juegos de la XXXII Olimpiada, se realizan en Tokio, Japón. El Ciclismo BMX consta de dos disciplinas ganadoras de medallas – la Carrera BMX y el evento BMX Estilo Libre agregado recientemente, que participará por primera vez en el programa olímpico en 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.
