As stated last week, I know nothing about racing, but I'm trying Ringo, even if the press releases read like a foreign language to me. It's weird though, it doesn't seem that long ago when pro BMX racers such as Brian Foster, Todd Lyons and Robbie Miranda were winning races and also showing up to kill it at skatepark sessions. I don't know where those days disappeared to, but well, it seems that somewhere along the way, BMX racing headed out on its own path in much the same way that flatland has. Anyway, enough editorializing from me, here's the press release from the UCI. -Brian Tunney
To kick off the season in style, UCI BMX Supercross presented by Swatch returns to Denmark's capital city, Copenhagen, at their beautiful world-class BMX Supercross track, an amazing permanent facility near the center of Europe's largest festival city. Copenhagen is also well-known for it's passion for cycling and the UCI BMX Supercross has the honour of being one of only six major events featured in Bike City Copenhagen, a showcase series of major cycling events leading up to the 2012 Olympics. USA's Donny Robinson, who won the event last year, will hope for the same result to kick off his quest for a 2nd Supercross title. Freecaster.tv will broadcast the semi-finals and finals LIVE on Sunday May 9th.
