Who Can Race?

WHO CAN RACE?
RACES ARE ORGANIZED INTO SEPARATE GIRLS AND BOYS CLASSES THEN SUBDIVIDED INTO AGE GROUPS AND SKILL LEVELS. THE AGE GROUPS RANGE FROM 5 AND UNDER TO 51 AND OVER CLASSES. WITHIN THESE AGE GROUPS ARE THREE SKILL LEVELS: NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE AND EXPERT. ALL RIDERS START AS NOVICES AND WORK UP TO THE MORE ADVANCED LEVELS BY WINNING RACES

BMX RACING DOES NOT REQUIRE A LOT OF EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT. MOST RACERS START WITH THEIR 20" STREET BIKE BY REMOVING THE CHAIN GUARD, THE KICKSTAND AND REMOVING THE FREESTYLE PEGS FROM THE AXLES IF EQUIPPED.
