What is BMX?
Bicycle motocross (BMX) is currently the fastest growing youth sport in North America AND is the latest addition to the Olympics.
The sport of BMX was created by kids, for kids. Back in the early 1970’s, a group of young riders were pretending to be their favorite motorcycle racing heroes by "racing" around a vacant dirt lot, twisting the imaginary throttle while they pedaled their bicycles. Thus, BMX was born.
That desire and vision has evolved into a full-blown sport in which riders compete on established dirt tracks elevating themselves to "hero" status. A typical race around a BMX track will last about 50 seconds pitting a rider against up to 7 other riders all going for the gold. Races are organized according to age group and skill levels, so everyone gets the opportunity to compete on a fair level.
BMX offers every rider the ability to participate at his or her own pace…NO ONE SITS ON THE BENCH! There are no coaches deciding who gets to play everyone gets into the action.
