About BMX Freestyle

Huge flips and fast twists

Arising from the racing culture that emerged from California in the 1970s, BMX freestyle was born out of the imagination of children and teenagers in the region inspired by the moves of riders and keen to imitate their heroes.

The 2022 Urdd Urban Games saw the likes of Olympian James Jones and pro BMX rider Jack Watts showcase their talents with some insane tricks. The 2023 competition is open to anyone who wants to show off their skills or gain experience on the ramps.

Ramps built for the games

With ramps being built especially for the event, we will be turning the Oval Basin into a skatepark for a weekend of competition and jam sessions. Our 2023 setup will change a bit from 2022 to provide more opportunities for bigger and better tricks.

Event Details

We are excited to once again invite amateur and pro riders to Cardiff Bay to compete in timed runs and enjoy a day of jam sessions and free rides. With ramps specially made for this event you can expect to see some unreal tricks.
