Freestyle Park Championships. It is a progressive, rapidly developing discipline that can attract young people
to cycling and help develop our sport in our country. BMX freestyle events are very entertaining for both: for
those who watch it from the stands and for TV viewers. I am sure this weekend BMX Freestyle will prove its
reputation as one of the most exciting sports. We are looking forward to the start of this competition. We

Union for their confidence in holding the European Championships and, of course, we wish good luck to all the
