History of BMX (2021)

History of BMX, year 2021.

Dear followers of this website. I have to tell you all that this year, 2021, will be the last year that I write about the History of BMX and other things concerning BMX. I have been in BMX wordwide since I got involved in this great sport in 1974 and decided to finish up my activities in this year. I have reported on among others, the Olympic Games since the beginning in 2008, in 2012, 2016 and 2020 would have been the 4th. Olympics I should have written about. Due to a world wide pandamic ...Covid-19, the 2020 Olympics were postponed and as it stand now, the Olympics will go on in 2021. For me it's a good time to leave it up to the next generation to report and write about BMX world-wide developing from 2022 on.

There still is a lot to update on my website from the beginning up till 2021. I will continue that work with pleasure. Wishing you all the best for the future and enjoy reading the University of BMX website.
Cheers,  Gerrit Does

July 9- 10-11th. the UCI BMX European Championships at Zolder - Belgium took place.

Due to Covid-19 situation in among others Europe, these European Championship BMX Race were very different from the normal Championships. Because of Covid there were restriction and therefore only around 1/3 the number of competators where able to race, this time in totla around 830 riders. Also the number of spectators  were limited till a max of 2500 persons. One had to be tested covid free or one had to have a QR code proven that you had been vaccinated. No riders from Great Britain were present.

The head of organisation, mr. Marc Wauters and his team were informed only 1 month before actual racing, they were allowed to organize this Europeans with restrictions due to Covid. They did a great jog getting everything finished in time. The experience was there, the Zolder BMX organisation organized the 2015 and 2019 UCI BMX World Championship and done that very well.
