THE RED BULL PUMP TRACK WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IS BACK 2019
The Red Bull Pump Track World Championship goes into the second year! Qualifiers are going to take place all around the world with more than 20 events in Europe, North America, South America, Asia, Oceania, and Africa. Registration is now open to everyone.
Velosolutions teamed up with Red Bull and launched the pump track world championship in 2018. David Graf and Christa von Niederhäusern, both from Switzerland, were crowned as World Champions at the big final in the pouring rain at the Jones Center in Springdale, Arkansas, USA.
In February 2019, the championship goes into the second year with the first qualifier taking place in Chile. Throughout the year, over 20 qualifiers will be carried out in locations all over the world.
Pump track racing at a new level
Pump tracks are a worldwide success, combining rolling jumps with banked turns, they are accessible to all. Riders use the track features to gain momentum and attack the track as fast as possible. “The Red Bull Pump Track World Championship has advanced the sport of pump track racing to a whole new level. It was impressive to see how hard professionals and amateurs battled it out on Velosolutions Pump Tracks around the world,” said Claudio Caluori, CEO at Velosolutions.
Qualifying for the final
Each qualifier will begin with timed runs from which the top 32 riders will advance to the knockout heats. Depending on the track at each qualifier, racing will take place in either a head to head battle or a time trial format. While the top 4 riders of each qualifier advance to the Red Bull Pump Track World Championship Final, the winners even get their full trip payed.
