UCI BMX FREESTYLE PARK WORLD CUP One of the most exciting FISE disciplines, BMX Freestyle Park is characterised by aerial tricks made possible by the shape of the structures and speed of the riders. While the technicality of the tricks is very important to the scoring, other criteria such as the use of the whole Park and the originality of the chosen lines are also key components of the scoring system. The sport makes its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Wakeboarding was introduced in the early ’80s and is often described as a cross between Waterski and Snowboard. Athletes stand locked onto their wakeboards and are pulled around a circuit. They can use ramps, walls, rails and the waves to achieve maximum air and perform tricks. Each run is judged according to the height and difficulty of the tricks landed.
Always located so it can be seen by as many spectators as possible, the FISE Flatland area looks like a theatre stage. It offers optimal views for spectators who can get up close to where the riders perform.
UCI BMX FLATLAND WORLD CUP

Athletes combine skill, balance and creativity to perform a kind of dance with the bike. More than just a contest, they create a show. Placed at the heart of each Festival, this competition has quickly become a staple of FISE.
Breaking – a dance style that combines body movements and music – originated in the Bronx during the ’70s. A harmony of rhythm and gesture-based activity, judged on technical movements, forms the basis of this urban discipline. Dancers express themselves in their own unique style through four main types of movement: Toprock, Downrock, Power Moves and Freezes.
Built exclusively from earth, the Dirt Track sets out a series of humps from start to finish. The height varies between 1 and 5 metres depending on where they are placed, and they’re set out so riders can maintain their speed.
ODE A LA MER BMX DIRT
Whether on a "homemade" track at the bottom of the garden or on one specially created for international competition, BMX DIRT harks back to the discipline’s authentic values. The judges may consider the runs of each rider according to their range and successful tricks landed, but it’s style and the impression left on the audience that take precedence over pure technicality.
