About Rapid City BMX
Thanks for looking us up, we'd love to have you come out to the track and ride with us. The Rapid City BMX Association, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the sport of BMX racing in the scenic Black Hills. We are a sanctioned race organization through USA BMX. The 2018 season marked an incredible acheivement for our program. We opened a new faciity in Robbinsdale park with one of the best tracks in the Midwest. Three time Olympic Track Builder, Tom Ritz with TRD ( www.tomritz.com/ ) has come to us with his 25 years of track building experience and has constructed an Awesome track that anyone will be happy and challenged to ride.
We are managed and run by 100% volunteer effort. The organization is guided by a Board of Directors who helps set the business plan and overall operations of the organization. We have made a serious investment in upgrading our facility, building a separate Strider™ track, and providing an exciting family-oriented activity that teaches the value of hard work, dedication, and most of all, having fun.
Our season runs May through September with occassional dates in October depending on weather. In May we run only Monday nights, registration 530PM to 630PM racing to follow. From June through September we race on Monday and Wednesday nights, registration is 5:30pm to 6:30pm with racing to follow directly. Our Facebook page Rapid City BMX or group page Rapid City BMX FB Group is a great tool for finding our most current schedule and events. First time of racing is $1. With a current USABMX membership, the nightly races cost $8 per rider, per class, and $3 for Strider riders. On the front end of the season through pre-registration and the first month of racing we offer season passes discounting races significantly. Throughout the season we also offer punch cards to pre-pay a few races ahead. These are both great tools for families who have multiple invididuals bringing the rider to the track.
Kids can start anytime through the season racing BMX bikes from walking age on up; mom and dad are more than welcome to bring their bike too. Rapid City is the Home of Strider Bikes and we have a separate division and track for balance bike riders. We have 3 classes of riders; novice, intermediate, and expert. We try our best to group kids in as close of a class/age matrix as we can and have a race for everyone.
Please see our facebook schedule to confirm open track day & time. Anyone or any age can ride, we just require they have long sleeves, pants and a full-face helmet. We have helmets at the track for free to borrow. Bring a bike* they are used to riding, no need for a specialized equipment.
*Note: pegs, reflectors and kick stands must be removed.
Come on out, watch or join in the fun. For more info, please email [email protected]
