BMX started in the early 70s in southern California by kids too young
to ride motorcycles. They modifyed their Schwinn Stingrays to look like
motocross bikes. These kids would then gather in corner lots to ride
and check out each others bikes. The corner lots quickly turned into
dirt tracks and developed into the organized BMX tracks of today. These
dirt tracks are typically 300 to 400 metres with a series of jumps banked
corners and other obstacles. Up to eight cyclists compete in each qualifying
race to determine eight finalists who meet for the championship. Races
are approximately 30-40 seconds in length and riders race three heats
or motos heats per event (qualifying rounds, quarter finals, semi-finals)
to qualify for the main event (finals)
In 2003, the International Olympic Committee made BMX a full medal
Olympic sport for 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
Canada hosted twice the BMX World Championships. In 1997, the event
was held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and more recently in 2007, when
Victoria, British-Columbia hosted the prestigious BMX event at the Juan
de Fuca Recreation Centre.
13th Ave BMX
13th Ave BMX Club 13th Avenue West, across
from Rambler Park baseball diamonds.
13th Ave BMX Club is in the early stages of bringing BMX back to the
city of Regina. The sport has been kept alive by numerous fans of the
sport by continuing to ride street and parks in all parts of the city.
This spring we hope to have enough participants so that we can give
the track some well needed maintenance and start using the track. We
hope to have a weekly ride night and possibly organize a weekend of
Racing as well.
We have a long road to make it possible,
but hopefully we can get together and make it happen.
Please feel free to message myself (Richard
Bandet) or Mike Stopanski with any questions regarding this topic.
