Let’s race! Velosolutions, Red Bull and the UCI are thrilled to announce that the 2022 Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships will be taking place at the Sante Fe Bike Park in Santiago de Chile on 20 November and you can tune in to Red Bull TV to watch all the action live!

Following last year’s exciting show of the last Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships in Lisbon, Portugal where France’s Eddy Clerte and Belgium’s Aiko Gommers battled it out with riders from around the world to take home the rainbow jersey the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships heads for its 5th year of racing since its inception in 2018.

Santa Fe is set to be a world-class bike park, designed to take Chilean riding to the next level with the belief that their local heroes will have the ability to become future UCI World Champions. The new Velosolutions Pump Track is currently under construction and promises to make for intense racing with a slightly shorter total length than previous tracks along with rollers designed for a clean battle between mountain bike and BMX Racing specialists. Located in Las Condes, Santiago, the project is a bridge between the city and the Andes mountains that will soon have the biggest Velosolutions Pump Track in Latam and a layout of trails, dirt jumps and a skill zone.

 Sadly the reports on pumptrack.com have gotten a bit scarce the last few years, but just before the finals last year fatbmx.com actually added a "pumptrack" section and they usually do quite frequent reports of races and events. So that may be a good place to stay posted.
