2020 Gold Cup Championships Announced
The Gold Cup Series presented by DK Bikes involves a rider counting his/her best two scores from Gold Cup events, according to the Gold Cup/State/Provincial Points Table, and his/her scores from Saturday & Sunday at the Gold Cup Final. Riders may race a Gold Cup Final in any region.
In addition to awarding a Gold Cup jacket and #1 plate to the winner in each age & skill level, we also award Gold Cup #2 & #3 plates. Finally, at the Finals, both Saturday and Sunday will also offer quadruple district points for riders.
NEW RULE: A RIDER MAY RACE IN ONE OR MORE GOLD CUP FINALS...RIDERS WILL ONLY BRING POINTS EARNED FROM GOLD CUP QUALIFIERS HELD WITHIN THAT REGION TO THE GOLD CUP CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL IN THAT REGION. EX: TO QUALIFY FOR AN AWARD AT THE SW FINAL, THE RIDER MUST HAVE RACED 2 QUALIFIERS IN THE SW REGION.
The competition in DeSoto will no doubt be tough in Texas!
Mankato Area BMX in Mankato, Minnesota recieves its first big USA BMX sanctioned race with the Gold Cup North Central Championships. 'Kato' BMX is operated by amazing volunteers who work tirelessly to bring the best for their riders. With a PROGATE to start you off on a downhill first straight into 3 asphalt turns Mankato Area BMX will be a welcome addition to the Gold Cup Championship Series.
Westmoreland BMX in Apollo, Pennsylvania is also getting their first big USA BMX sanctioned race, since the NBL era of BMX when the Northeast Regional Championship was held there in 2003. Westmoreland starts off like many other tracks around the country, however, after the second straight converges it's decision maker, a ninety degree lefty sends you and your speed back to the era of the early 2000's downhill racing, making for a fast and exciting finish for the Gold Cup North East Championships.
