BMX World Championships to Australia

The UCI has awarded the hosting of the 2009 BMX World Championships to Australia. The championships will be staged in Adelaide, South Australia, and the bid received substantial support from SA Events, a division of South Australian Tourism. The 2009 World's will be held indoors at the Wayville Showground and organisers expect around 1800 entrants from an anticipated 35 countries.

BMX Australia National President Graham Arnold commented, "It is not well known that BMX Australia has the second largest competitor membership in the world, and events of this magnitude allow those riders to experience the excitement of world class competition in their own backyard."
