I have done BMX for 10 years now and have absolutely loved it, but noticed not many people really know what it is. BMX racing is an all out sprint, on a pedal bike, through a track generally shaped like a W, averaging 1100 feet in length, made of clay, with a start hill, jumps, humps, table tops, three high banked corners, four straight aways, and a finish line. There are many tracks through out the US each being different, but over all similar. On race day each rider will compete in at least three races, which are broke down by age and proficiency. Its an individual sport that does not frown on missing a race or practice. You are as dedicated as you would like to be! In BMX nobody sits the bench! BMX racing is fun for the whole family. If your not on the track racing, you might be fixing a bike, volunteering, tying a shoe, or just enjoying watching.
