BMX | Cycling Canada Cyclisme

When it first appeared around 1968, no one thought that motocross-inspired bicycle races would go on to become an Olympic event, which it did for the 2008 Games in Beijing. Considered to be one of the most thrilling and spectacular sports of the cycling world, BMX (or bicycle motocross) continues to gain traction among young Canadians.

And it is no longer alone. BMX Freestyle also experienced a recent meteoric rise when it ascended to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stage. The sport showcases a series of aerial and ground stunts that will definitely continue to evolve in the years to come.
