UCI BMX SX World Cup Finals - Important Details

UCI BMX SX World Cup Finals

Many questions have come up about the parking and the set up for the amateur teams. As this event is quite different from our other events we want you to have a copy of the parking and the layout for setting up a tent if you so choose.There will be no tents allowed inside the fence. There will be tons of bleachers so you might just want to sit in the bleachers which will give you a great view of the racing anywhere you sit. Sorry, no coolers allowed inside the fence.

Everyone will need a spectator ticket to watch the SX racing. Tickets available at the gate (public entrance). Untrue to the rumor of a charge to set up your team tent, there is no charge. There is a $10 parking fee. Teams will park in the spectator area. Remember the last time to register for the amateur race will be Friday evening from 6 to 8 pm, also practice hours. There is no fee to get in on Friday, set up your tent on Friday. There is overnight security.

Sunday the racing will be intense with the main events for the Finals of the 2016 World Cup. You won't want to miss this exciting event which will be the first ever UCI World Cup in Florida. Come see many of the Olympians from the 2016 Rio games. Sign up to walk with the gold medalist Connor Fields and get your picture taken with him and many others in attendance.
