The rumors are true, BMX Freestyle will be added to the schedule at the 2018 Olympics!
According to press releases from the UCI (International Cycling Union) and IOC (International Olympic Committee), a non-racing BMX event has been added to the line-up for the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
BMX Freestyle is descended from BMX racing, which became a medal sport at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, and consists of several disciplines including street, park, vert, trails, and flatland. Little is known about the setup for the upcoming games, but apparently a street course has been confirmed.
We will be sure to keep you updated as more details are released.
