HOW TO QUALIFY FOR THE GOLD CUP FINALS!
Coming directly from the USA BMX HQ, these are the steps you must take as a rider in order to qualify for the Gold Cup Finals and chase that plate!
STEP 1: Compete at Gold Cup Qualifiers. In 2019, there will be 81 GC races held from January to mid-August, between 44 states and Canadian provinces. Finishes from two Gold Cup Qualifiers will be counted.
STEP 2: Compete on both Saturday and Sunday at any six of the Gold Cup Regional Championship Finals with the maximum of four scores counting toward the overall Gold Cup points.
* A maximum of four (4) class or cruiser scores will be counted. Two (2) scores from the rider’s best Qualifier finishes and the other two (2) being his/her Saturday and Sunday finishes at the Gold Cup Final.
BONUS STEP: Riders can also earn up to 4 additional bonus points by racing locals. Racers will be given 1 extra point for every two (2) single point races they compete in, on or before August 15th, with a maximum of four (4) bonus points given.
ie: Race eight locals and earn 4 bonus points. It could make the difference between a No.1 plate or No.3, or no plate at all.
