    • We ask that when riders congratulate other riders, they do so by simply saying “Good Race” instead of hugs & high-fives. Parents will not be allowed in the finish line area for any reason.

    • At the conclusion of the main event, awards will be given before riders exit the track area. We ask that once your racer has collected their award that you exit the facility as expeditiously as possible.

  • Protest

    • To minimize congestion at the finish line and to ensure distancing, there will be no protest regarding action on the track. 

    • Tri-City BMX officials are well trained and taught to call fouls as they happen. These officials will decide immediately if an incident is deemed a foul or a no call. 

    • Once the official has made this determination and the head official has confirmed and documented a foul or no call, that decision is final.

 

This list is meant to serve as a guideline and will be our best practices. We reserve the right to make changes if necessary, to ensure for the safety and well-being of our riders and spectators. Further updates to these guidelines will be posted, as necessary. 

 

***THIS PART IS IMPORTANT***If you are uncomfortable with any of these procedures or being around people, please stay home. Let’s get back to racing as safely as possible and most of all let’s have fun. If you have any questions or recommendations to make things better, send us an e-mail at TriCityBMXinfo@gmail.com.
