The World’s BMX media and industry are also making the journey while the 600 spectator tickets sold out in under 24 hours; with fans making the journey from as far away as Canada, Japan and Australia.

Local interest is strong with professional BMX rider Dan Lacey being joined by 21-year-old Source BMX employee Stuart Chisholm who qualified his place in the event through a qualifier contest held in July.

The riders arrive on Wednesday with practice all day on Thursday and Friday; practice in itself is an event with the park being opened up for free spectating.

The competition is held on Saturday and Sunday September 7th and 8th from 3pm until 6pm with the event also live-streamed to a huge global audience at www.sourcebmx.com/boh
