What time are your sign-up and practice times?

Signups are Tuesdays and Thursdays 6PM to 7PM. Track open to public

What time do you begin racing?

We start racing shortly after signups.

How much will it cost to begin racing? 

 First there is the cost of a USA Membership, there are three opions. One opion is  to buy a one day membership for $1, secound one is to buy a one month membership for $35, and last opion is to buy a one year membership for $60.Strider memberships are $30. After you have chosen the membership that works for you there is the cost of each race. We have a few opions here, first one we recommend is the race card which is $25 for five non-trophy races, next opion is pay $8 for a single non-trophy race, or last but not least the $12 race for a trophy. Also with one day memberships the cost is included in the race for example: single non-trophy race you only pay the $8 we pay the one day membership fee.

How big are your first place trophies?

1st place is about 12in tall

Your Bike:

  • Make sure all bolts are tight - especially your axle and stem bolts.
  • Remove any freestyle type axle pegs.
  • All reflectors/brackets must be removed for safety purposes.
  • If your bike has a kickstand, it must be taken off.
  • You will eventually need a numberplate. You will be provided a temporary numberplate with your membership purchase.

Clothing and safety equipment:

  • Long sleeve shirt.
  • Long pants or jeans.
  • A helmet. The USA BMX recommends a full-face helmet. We have "loaner helmets" for beginners to use.
  • Any enclosed shoe is sufficient. Skateboard style shoes are suggested.

Now that you have everything ready, we`ll see you at the track!
