17 Nov 2023
Usually the main BMX contest circuit has come to a close by this time of year, but Urban World Series have an early Xmas present for you in the form of a new online video based contest 'BMX On A Mission'. With a stacked list of riders and filmers competing for a prize purse of €4000, you already know this is going to be a good one. Look out for the videos dropping on November 20th and be sure to vote for your favorite. Scroll down for all the details...
"We are proud to announce a brand new competition into the Urban World Series calendar. Today we release BMX: On A Mission, a new online competition based on 1 minute video parts where not only athletes will be awarded, but also the filmers will be a big part of the contest, as they are inside the urban sports community.
As we said we are going to offer to the winners a 4.000€ total prize purse, and this prize pool will be divided into two big prizes: €2000 prize for the Best Rider and €2000 for the Best Filmer.
Urban World Series is adding this contest to support and grow the BMX street scene and add new competitive content into the calendar. Street BMX is going to be one of the main sports in the future years inside the Urban World Series strategy and this is a small step forward.
This contest will be supported by our two sponsors Cult and The Cut. Thanks a lot for believing in our project and making it possible. Also DIG is involved as an official media partner. We are proud to collaborate with the main BMX magazine in the world and they will be supporting the contest on their official channels." - Urban World Series
