About BMX

BMX rac­ing is an extremely excit­ing sport open to rid­ers of all ages, mak­ing it great fun for all the fam­ily. Up to eight rid­ers race, Moto-Cross-style, around a 300-400m track, with jumps, bump and berms (banked cor­ners). The excite­ment and pop­u­lar­ity of BMX rac­ing have caught the atten­tion of the Inter­na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee and BMX is now an Olympic sport.

With many clubs and tracks up and down the coun­try, it is very easy to get involved. Read on, as you will find out most of what’s needed to get started in this fan­tas­tic sport.

Get Into BMX

Intro­duc­tion: It is very easy to get your­self on track for BMX — com­par­a­tively lit­tle equip­ment is required and BMX bikes are sim­ple and robust (which means they’re not too expen­sive), with pow­er­ful brakes and no gears.

BMX is per­haps the most family-friendly branch of cycle sport — often the whole fam­ily will com­pete at an event and there are an amaz­ing 22 cat­e­gories plus 3 Novice cat­e­gories cov­er­ing all ages and abil­i­ties in the National Series.
