ABOUT BMX RACING: Thanks in part to the global exposure that the Olympics have brought to the sport, BMX racing continues to grow in numbers and popularity with today’s youth. As the largest extreme sport in the nation, BMX racing is full of nonstop action. Up to eight riders speed down the starting hill, maneuvering over dirt obstacles and around banked turns in hopes of gaining a spot on the podium.
On average, each race is a 35 second sprint, with full contact, close-knit racing and sometimes - thrilling crashes and victories. The Olympic sport of BMX Racing is exciting to watch for all ages! These riders range in age from 2 to 70+ and will be racing to amass points for titles in their age classes and the highly coveted USA BMX No.1 Amateur title for boys and girls.
