Registration is open for the UK qualifier, it is accessible and open to anyone to compete for the World Championship title. Each qualifier will begin with timed runs from which the top 32 riders will advance to the knockout heats. Racing will take place as a head to head battle, which will be timed. The top 4 riders of each qualifier advance to the Red Bull Pump Track World Championship Final, with an all expenses paid trip.
