WHAT-Ready to get some winter cross-training in for the upcoming Fluidride Cup slalom? Let's race some BMX mountain bike-style!! BMX is a great skill, fitness, and strength builder. Where's the proof, you ask?.......Lars Sternberg used to be a pro BMXer. 'Nuff said. WHY-Two seasons ago a bunch of us mountain bikers formed a BMX class at Peninsula Indoor BMX. It was by far the largest class of riders at the BMX track and we had tons-of-fun. WHO-There is a new track operator at River Valley BMX in Sumner, WA. His name is Mark Hutko. He is very interested in getting mountain bikers to BMX races to form their own class. Prior to Mark's take over of River Valley mountain bikes were not welcome, but Mark is excited to see a mountain bikes at his track, not only for races, but during the week for free practice and he is willing to cut us a deal on the race fees! THE DETAIL$$$....You will need a one year ABA BMX membership which is $40. A day of racing is $10. However, Mark is willing to give any mountain biker two free days of racing when they purchase a membership. If you figure in the free days you only pay $20 for a 1 year membership. I know $40 is a bit of money, but just a drop in the mountain bike bucket!! OTHER DETAILS-You will also need a fullface helmet, long pants, and long sleeve shirt. you will NOT have to change your mountain bike. Gears and 26" wheels are allowed in the ABA rulebook. TIME-- River Valley BMX will be racing SAT & SUN through the winter. Racing practice/signup starts at 10:00am and goes until 11:00. Racing starts ASAP after practice. to check out direction, times, details etc cut n' paste http://www.rivervalleyBMXracing.com I will be out tomorrow Feb 10th. Feel free to PM me with questions. Anyone interested please come out and race.
