For the first time in more than fifteen years, the World Championships are coming to the USA.
The Novant Health BMX Supercross Track in Rock Hill is one of just a few Olympic-caliber BMX SX tracks in the US. The entire course was modeled after the 2008 Beijing Olympic track, designed for speed with a 35-foot initial elite jump, asphalt turns for acceleration, and a massive final jump over the amateur track.
Next week, over 3,300 riders from 40+ countries are expected to come to Rock Hill to compete in the 2017 World Championship. They’ll be bringing thousands of other fans, family, and friends across a wide spectrum of cultures spanning the entire globe.
The World Championships will take place at the Novant Health BMX Supercross Track, 1307 Riverwalk Parkway, Rock Hill, SC 29730 from Tuesday, July 25 through Saturday, July 29.
Tickets range in price from $12.50 for a single day pass to $50 for the entire week – tickets are available here.
