BMX RACING

Did you know that many national and world champions in cyclocross, mountain bike, and road disciplines got their start with BMX? While the equipment may be different, the bike handling skills gained on a BMX bike make transitioning to other cycling disciplines a breeze, even if it’s been 10+ years since you’ve been on the track.
