Bike Kingdom Kids Cup

4 July 2021 | 22 August 2021 | 3 October 2021

The Bike Kingdom Kids Cup is a junior DHI series with a clear focus on fun and introducing the kids to racing slowly and gradually. The series consists of 3 events in the first year and is not linked to any licence ratings.

There are no downhill races for children in Switzerland, so there is no talent–creating event for the sport. With the Alpenbikepark Chur and Bike Kingdom Park Lenzerheide, the Bike Kingdom now wants to offer downhill–oriented children and families not only the right infrastructure, but also the right event for the next generation of downhill riders.

Details about the race series

  • 1 race for time
  • 2 different courses
  • 4 categories
  • family-friendly entry fee & programme
  • professional timing
  • series scoring
  • Promotion of the overall winner

The course is timed once and the fastest time wins the race. There is neither a seeding run nor a qualification. The timing is done with a professional timing system, which also shows the current ranking at the same time.

Category  Age
Little Shredder Years 2013–2015 (6–8 years)
DHI Kids Shredder Years 2011–2012 (9–10 years)
DHI Kids Youth Years 2009–2010 (11–12 years)
DHI Youth U15 Years 2007–2008 (13–14 years)
DHI Youth U17 Years 2005–2006 (15–16 years)

 

The courses vary from race to race, are compiled from sections of the bike park and become more technically demanding over the season. The youngest category will ride an easier, shorter «blue course». The other three categories will ride the same course, although jumps can be blocked for individual categories.

The courses for the entire race series will be communicated at the beginning of the season. Each Friday evening, the course will be signposted and critical areas will be protected with mats.

On Saturday and Sunday morning the routes are signalled, but not closed off and not additionally secured with marshals. The participants can ride the course with their friends or parents as often as they like. The kids should get to know the course, but have fun and be in a familiar environment.

For safety reasons, all participants must ride the course at least once on the Sunday before the race (number must be fitted).

  • The race office is located between the Skill Center and the Jump Line, near the end of the FLOWline.
  • The race office will be open on race day Sunday, 22 August and 3 October 2021 from 8.00 am to 1.00 pm each day.
  • The online registration window closes at 11.59 pm on the Wednesday before the race. After that, only late entries on site are possible during the opening hours of the race office. Late registration fee: Start fee plus CHF 10.00.
  • Late entries will be accepted until 12.00 pm, after which the registration window will be closed.

The following protectors are compulsory:

  • Gloves
  • Full-face helmet
  • Knee pads
  • Back protector

In addition, we recommend wearing elbow pads and a neck brace. However, this is not compulsory and is up to the participants themselves.
Insurance is the responsibility of the participants.
