About UEC European Cup
The UCI BMX Supercross was brought to the Netherlands for the first time in 2011. A giant milestone. Since then, the BMX World Cup has been organized @Papendal annually. This will be the first year we organize the European Cup @Papendal; one on Saturday and the other on Sunday.
Will you join us in the weekend of 22 and 23 May 2021? The event @Papendal has grown out to be a classic on the calendar: all world champions find their way to Papendal.
The first European Cup will take place @Papendal on Saturday 22 May and Sunday 23 May 2021. The High Performance Centre in the woods of Arnhem. And home base of the National BMX selections.
It promises to be an exciting race on the home track @Papendal. In 2018 the UCI announced that Papendal’s bid for the World Championships in 2021 was approved. Therefore in 2019 a 5 meter starting ramp was built and changes to the first straight were made, in order to make the track accessible to all riders. This European Cup provides BMX-riders of all ages with a great opportunity to discover the challenging Papendal track for the first time.
