Cycling(BMX)

Sport Overview

BMX is short for bicycle motocross. BMX races involve up to eight riders starting simultaneously and competing on an approx. 400 metre dirt course featuring ups and downs of varying heights. Since BMX helps riders develop basic physical fitness and balance skills and is a sport that the whole family can enjoy, it provides an entry point to other cycling sports.
