The 2018 UCI BMX World Championships are set be held from June 5-9 in Baku, Azerbaijan, the largest city of the nation and the largest in the Caspian Sea and Caucasus region.
One of the fastest developing cities in the world, Baku sees their old world meet the progress of the new and has been described as a mix of Paris and Dubai.
Since 2016 the city has hosted the European Formula 1 Grand Prix, and each year hosts the Tour d’Azerbaijan as part of the UCI Europe Tour. This year, they add the BMX worlds to their list of events, and it isn’t set to disappoint.
