Here with I would like to inform you about some changes
made by UEC BMX Commission for the season 2011 and 2012.
One of them is as for higher power and other, either according
to your proposals (at Convention) or our monitoring during
the race season 2010. More changes could be done after meeting
UCI and UEC Commission at begin of December 2010 but only
up the race season 2012.
•As the organizer of rounds 3&4 2011 at Weiterstadt
Germany cancelled, we were forced to replace those rounds
to one of the stand-by organizer Federations. New organizer
rounds 3&4 2011 is Zolder Belgium.
Zolder is very known by UEC for good organization, so I
don`t doubt it will be this time as well so.
•As the UCI cancelled the Cruiser as Championship
class, we do this as well, but cruiser will stay as class
Challenger only during all races.
•Master class 30+ will not be separate class more;
it will be Challenger 30+
•From this season we allowed the shot pants during
the practice and racing, but only with full protection of
shine bone and knee and only for the Championship classes.
No respect of this rules will lead automatically to disqualification
•Not racing with full protection and complete correct
equipment leads directly to;
b) last place or
c) penalty fee.
•European Challenger under 12, stays integral part
of races at Haaksbergen (Finals) according to UEC Competition.
Rules from Challenger 9 and over (all classes) 8 and under
are not allowed to start at Championships.
•Organizer of European Championships rounds 2012 are:
Valkenswaard, Geneva, Leeuwarden, Kortrijk and Creazzo.
•Organizer of Finals 2012 is FFC as already announced.
•Organizer of Finals 2013 is Belgium Cycling Federation
•The next UEC BMX Convention will be held up at 5th
of February 2011 and as for full calendar (Olympic year
2012) will be last one till 2013. Here we are looking for
host Federation for this Convention. If you have wish and
possibility that we organize them at your country, please
let us know soon.
•The competition rules, for Championship classes,
Challenger classes, Cruiser and international races will
be complete two or three weeks after BMX Convention.
•Attached you will find UEC BMX calendar for 2011
and 2012, this is already done in agreement with UCI but
please note: each organizer Federation have to fill UCI
Calendar form and send it to Mr. J. Lindstrom before 15th
of December. Your Federation got this form and all instructions
how to do this.
Calendar 2011 is already closed and confirmed.
•During European Championship rounds 1&2 at France,
we organize only one round for the Challenger classes as
Two rounds with so many riders where not possible to run
within two days.
•With separate mail I will send today to all organizer
of Rounds and Finals 2011 and 2012 the Charge books, Recommended
time schedule, and Calendar.
