About BMX Supercross
The UCI BMX Supercross was brought to the Netherlands for the first time in 2011. A giant milestone. Since then, the BMX World Cup has been organized @Papendal annually. Except in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19. The event @Papendal has grown out to be a classic on the calendar: all world champions find their way to Papendal. In 2021 we did organize the UCI Worldchampionships BMX at Papendal and later that year also the UEC BMX European Cup. These events were amazing and were organized with all measures taken into account.
