Cycling Canada ​- Chengdu, China, November 7, 2017 – Canada will have one athlete at the first edition of the UCI Urban Cycling World Championships, to be held in Chengdu, China, on November 8-12.  Jaden Chipman of New Lowell, Ontario, will compete in the Men’s BMX Freestyle, an event that will be added to the Olympic program in 2020 for Toyko.

The 17 year old Chipman finished 42nd overall in the 2017 UCI BMX Freestyle Park World Cup rankings.  He has been riding BMX since 2012, and recently won the Pepsi Pro/Am.

“It is exciting to now have BMX Freestyle added to the Olympic program for Tokyo,” says Jacques Landry, Chief Technical Officer and Head Coach for Cycling Canada.  “These up and coming Urban Worlds are important, as it will be an opportunity for cycling federations to get a better handle on this newly added Olympic cycling discipline. Even though we [Cycling Canada] have only one entry in Chengdu, it is still important to get the lay of the land. I’m expecting my visit, as a Cycling Canada official, to be an eye opener.”
