The first of five races in the 2011 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series, the South Africa event is the fourth World Cup event to count into the 2010-2011 UCI BMX Ranking season. Future stops on the 2011 UCI Supercross World Cup circuit include Papendal, Netherlands, May 27-28; London, Great Britain, August 19-20; Sarasota, Fla., September 16-17; and Chula Vista, Calif., September 30 – October 1.
The Pietermaritzburg Supercross event is open to all elite-level riders holding an USA Cycling BMX international license and riders must be born from 1994 or earlier to be eligible to enter the race.
The UCI BMX Supercross World Cup series offers significant international class 2 ranking points that affect an athlete’s individual international ranking, and contribute to a nation’s ranking, which is the primary factor in determining the number of start positions a country receives at the 2012 Olympic Games. The Pietermaritzburg contest is also the sixth race to be factored into the 2010-2011 USA Cycling BMX Power Rankings.
