By: Angelina Palermo  April 13, 2021

Now is the time to prepare to be the ultimate fan of USA Cycling. Here is everything you need to know about BMX Freestyle at the Summer Games in July 2021.

How It Works

BMX Freestyle is a judged competition where riders perform two-minute runs executing a sequence of tricks on ramps, walls, box jumps, and spines throughout the park. These riders are judged on the quality of their run based on difficulty, style, and originality.

BMX Freestyle will make its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Games in July 2021.

Ariake Urban Sports Park

The competition will take place at the Ariake Urban Sports Park in Ariake, Koto-Ku, Tokyo. This course has been constructed in the Ariake district, which is located in the stunning waterfront area close to the Athletes' Village.

USA Cycling is entering the Olympic Games with past and present World Champions, Hannah Roberts (2017 & 2019), Perris Benegas (2018), and Justin Dowell (2018).
