Frequently Asked Questions

What is needed to race?

  • USA BMX Membership
  • Long pants
  • Long sleeve shirt
  • Helmet
  • Competitive spirit
  • Good attitude
  • Willingness to learn

What should riders wear?  

We strongly recommend a long sleeve shirt and long pants.  Shorts are acceptable so long as the rider wears combination knee/ shin guards and there is NO skin visible from the waist to the ankle.   Shorts and knee/shin guards are NOT recommended for new riders.

Can I/ my child bring their own bike?

Absolutely! For safety reasons the chain guard, reflectors and any accessories (horns, bells, water bottles, etc.) must be removed from the bike before it will be allowed on the track.

What if I/ my child does not have a suitable bike?

The track has a number of loaner racing bikes available for checkout to new riders. These are available on a first come, first served basis on any given practice or race night.  Track Staff will be happy to assist in picking out the right size bike!

Is a helmet required?

YES!  Riders racing on the “big track” must wear full face helmets. Striders may wear “park” or “street” style helmets.

What if I don’t have a helmet?

We have loaner helmets at the Registration window. Come see us and we’ll find one that fits properly.

Is Membership required?

Yes.  Blue Springs BMX is sanctioned by USA BMX, The American Bicycle Association.  A USA BMX Membership is required to participate in either practice or any sanctioned race.

How much is Membership?

There are four types of Memberships.  Memberships can be purchased at the Registration window any night the track is open.  USA BMX Memberships are valid at any USA BMX sanctioned track in the U.S. or Canada.  Sorry, cash or check only.  We do not accept debit or credit cards.
