PUMP TRACK WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS LEGACY – A GLOBAL RACING SERIES
The Pump Track World Championships have successfully pioneered a revolutionary global pump track racing series. This platform sees local heroes, elite BMX racers, and MTB World Champions competing on an even playing field – the pumptracks meticulously designed by Velosolutions.
In 2019, the iconic rainbow stripes were awarded for the first time at the World Final in Switzerland to Payton Ridenour and Tommy Zula, marking a historic moment in pump track racing. The return to racing in 2021 crowned Eddy Clerte and Aiko Gommers as the new World Champions in Lisbon, Portugal.
In 2022, Santiago, Chile, hosted over 70 athletes from around the world, with Niels Bensink and Christa von Niederhausern claiming the coveted honors on race day.
