Competition format

Riders launch themselves from an eight-metre high start ramp and race over a track comprising banked corners and obstacles such as jumps alternating with short pedalling sections. The event will start with an individual time trial run, with each rider racing the track once to determine the seeding for the next phase of competition. From the quarter-finals onwards, heats of eight riders will set off in a bid to get to the finish line first.

Venue
The BMX Olympic Centre is constructed in the X Park section of the Deodoro Olympic Park. It will be 400m long and will have seating for 7500 spectators.

The Deodoro Park is the second largest concentration of competition venues at Rio 2016. Its nine venues will host 11 Olympic sports including BMX and mountain bike. After the Olympic Games the BMX Olympic Centre will host athletes both for high-level training and for leisure activities.
