BMX - Bicycle moto cross

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.

BMX Club - Regina

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.
