ere comes the season. The first big roll-out BMX Series Race of the year is February 18 in Abbotsford.
The first BMX Series is drawing on the best riders in their age groups from around the Lower Mainland.
BMX riding is a huge sport. It's supported by Cycling BC who administrate cycling races in BC.
There's more going on than you may think. There's the velodrome in Burnaby and every mountain has some kind of off road trails. City's have parks designed for BMX. Just to name a few.
The event is organized by Abbotsford BMX.
What is BMX

Within each age class there are three
skill levels – novice, intermediate and expert. All riders start as
novice and work up to more advanced levels, based on achieving a
required number of wins (10 wins to move to intermediate, and then 25
wins to move to expert). A "win" does not mean in each moto--it means
placing first in the rider's category at the end of the night, based on
overall placing in each of the three motos.
Nobody has to sit on the bench in BMX,
everyone can participate!
