The Asian Cycling Confederation (ACC) has elevated the Philippines’ bid to host the 2020 Asian BMX Championships to the continental body’s management committee meeting set later this year.

This was confirmed by ACC Secretary General Onkar Singh to the PhilCycling during the confederation’s congress last Friday at the International Hotel Tashkent in Uzbekistan that coincided with the Asian Championships for Road.

So far, only the Philippines signified an interest to host the championships, whose 2019 edition was held last month in Kuala Lumpur where Filipinos Patrick Coo won gold in the men junior category and former Asian Games champion Daniel Caluag finished fourth place after skidding in the first turn in the elite class.

PhilCycling President Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino welcomed the ACC’s acceptance of the national sports association’s intention to host next year’s championships at the International Cycling Union (UCI)-regulation BMX track that is being built in Tagaytay City for the 30th Southeast Asian Games.
