Provas de ciclismo BMX nos Jogos Olímpicos de Tóquio
July 23, 2021 - August 8, 2021 - Os Jogos Olímpicos de Verão 2020, os Jogos da XXXII Olimpíada, têm lugar em Tóquio, no Japão. O ciclismo BMX tem duas provas – corrida BMX e a recém-entrada BMX estilo livre, que fará parte do programa Olímpico pela primeira vez em Tóquio 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.
