BikeFest Coming to Kinetic Park Aug. 6-7

BikeFest logo

The St. Charles County Parks Department is diligently preparing Kinetic Park in Dardenne Prairie for BikeFest 2022, and racers and spectators alike won’t want to miss it! In addition to two major pump track championship events, the weekend of Aug. 6 and 7 promises to be fun with activities for the entire family. 

BikeFest, which runs throughout the two days, is packed with biking events, a live DJ and music, local food vendors, bike shop vendors, inflatables and more. Attendees can utilize the skate park and bike skills course and participate in interactive booths. Last year’s popular foam cannons are back for hot summer fun!

The Red Bull Qualifier, for athletes 17 and older, is scheduled for 3:30-9:30 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 6, and features up to 200 competitive BMX and MTB racers: men and women vying for a spot in the World Championship event. In separate runs, riders will race against the clock. The top four men and women from this qualifier will advance to the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships held in Santiago, Chile, later this year to compete for the championship title. The top male finisher and top female finisher from the qualifier will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the World event. To register to compete, visit the Red Bull UCI Pump Track World Championships Qualifier webpage.

The USA Pump Track Championships event, for ages 5 and up, is scheduled for 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 7. This national series, taking place for the first time at Kinetic Park, is truly racing for the whole family. With multiple divisions from 5 years old to masters at 35 years and over, there is a race class for everyone. The top four winners in the 17 and older bracket will qualify for the USA Pump Track National Championship in Springdale, Ark., in September. For more information and to register as a racer for this event, visit the USA Pump Track Championships webpage.
