*** UCI BMX Supercross World Cup To Be Managed By Global SX Events Inc.***
UCI BMX News -- 12/14/2010
The International Cycling Union is pleased to announce its partnership with Global SX
Events Inc (GSX Events) which will hold part of the organization and marketing rights
for the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series.
The UCI BMX Supercross World Cup, the world’s leading BMX racing series, serves as
the main qualification event for the 2012 Olympic Games. Introduced by the UCI in 2003,
this series of races has revitalized BMX with its exciting and spectacular Supercross format.
UCI will maintain its role in governing the sport and will continue to draw up and manage
the international calendar as well as establish the regulations for international competition.
UCI President Pat McQuaid explains, “BMX in general and the BMX Supercross World Cup
in particular, are undergoing spectacular growth, which has accelerated since their Olympic
baptism in Beijing in 2008. The UCI has invested considerably in the UCI BMX Supercross
World Cup to bring it up to its current level, but I am convinced that the partnership that
will now link the UCI and Global SX Events will allow BMX to continue its growth in optimal
conditions: still under the aegis of the UCI, but making the most of GSX Events’ skills.”
Based in Gahanna, Ohio (USA), Global SX Events Inc will take over the general management
of the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup, for which it will hold part of the organization and
maketing rights. In addition, GSX Events will also be the UCI partner in another field: the
UCI’s BMX track building service. With the recent development of the discipline worldwide,
GSX Events (through EliteTrax) will be able to answer to the increased demands for the
construction of high-level BMX tracks around the world. The BMX track building service
will be led by the well-known track building expert Tom Ritzenthaler.
Gary Aragon, Chairman and President of GSX Events, says, “The UCI BMX Supercross
World Cup series is currently the leading international BMX event. But as the sport grows,
the series will need to grow with it. GSX Events is committed to continually develop and
advance the sport of BMX racing the world over. Our goal is to partner with the UCI to
take the sport through this next phase of growth.”
