The 2023 European championships in Besançon


Thanks to its new BMX track which was inaugurated last summer, Besançon has just been chosen to host the European championships from 6th to 9th July 2023.

This track has a mound of earth and a starting point 5 m high and is one of the best in Europe. It will host the event for 2,000 participants who will compete in elite, U23, junior and U16 categories for both men and women. Taking place just a year before the Olympics, this event is an extra asset for Greater Besançon which has been awarded the “Terre de Jeu” label and will be a base for Paris 2024, particularly for foreign delegations.
