Simone (17 yrs) and Chris Christensen (15 yrs) are siblings, but first and foremost they
are BMX riders and both selected for this years World Championships in Copenhagen.
Everyone knows just a little about these things has great expectations to Simone and
Chris achievements at this years World Championships, which are being held I Copen-
hagen. And since a large part of their life is being spent on BMX, they find comfort in
each others understanding for and commitment to the sport.


’‘It’s quite cool that we are together on this. We practise together and if anything
comes up, we always have our mutual support’’ says Simone. ‘I don’t even think about
the fact, that my sister is practising a sport exercised mostly by boys’ says Chris.
Without doubt, not many people connect BMX with a typically sport for girls, but that doesn’t
worry Simone at all. On the contrary she believes that her gender gives her better odds: ’I´m
used to racing against boys, so I have a clear advantage. Besides I´m the youngest
in my group, so I’m definitely aiming for a place in the finals’, says Simone. Both Chris
and Simone can without a doubt agree on what they love about the sport: - Chris: ‘The speed is
definitely the coolest thing about it’
Simone: ’Yeah and then the fact that BMX is much more unpredictable that any
other sport. You really have to use your head, when you are riding. It’s extreme and
unpredictable’.’

championships
Hosting this year’s BMX World Championships offers lots
of opportunities for Denmark.


As you’ll notice the Danish cities are already
full of bicycles. The infrastructure is care-
fully designed to make a simple bike ride the
fastest and easiest way to get around. And
now the Danes are privileged to welcome
Pro BMX riders into the city as well. The out-
spoken Danish love for bicycling is just one
of the many reasons behind The Branding
Denmark Fund contributing in organising the
best World Championship ever.


All eyes are on Denmark
Creativity. Attitude. Fun. The BMX discipline
is great entertainment for the masses. And
as international participant or BMX-suppor-
ter visiting Copenhagen you are of special
importance to Denmark. As host country
we are on our toes making everyone feel at
home and have some exciting days in Den-
mark. At the same time providing the best
possible conditions for the visiting interna-
tional press is equally important. We want to
tell the World what’s going on in Denmark.
And we strive to demonstrate our capacity
in executing high quality sport events and
having more people visiting Denmark in the
future.

Having recently qualified as Olympic disci-
pline Denmark hope to assist the further
development of BMX racing by making sure
that all eyes are on the 2011 Championships!              THE BRANDING

volunteers – help making it happen
The UCI BMX World Championships 2011 have received great help from the BMX sport of Denmark. A high number of volunteers from BMX Clubs all
over Denmark are vital in the making of the event. Besides the invaluable support from the BMX sport and the local football club BK Hekla the sup-
port from CPH Volunteers is extremely important to help making the UCI BMX World Championships 2011 happen.




Cph Volunteers is the volunteer squad of Copenhagen city. The main reason for its establishment in June 2009 was to make Copenhagen more quali-
fied to host large international events, for which availability of coordinated volunteer work is one of the necessary preconditions.

By helping Copenhagen host more prestigious international events, Cph Volunteers are providing their share for making Copenhagen a better interna-
tional host city and a more lively and exciting place to live in for all its inhabitants. Cph Volunteers seek to improve social networking opportunities for
international students as well as Expats. Today the squad consists of more than 1400 members. Hereby Copenhageners have proved that they are
more than willing to support actively great international events in the capital.




                                 Thanks to all volunteers for making it happen!
