It is very important to bring the
paper receipt you received for your new or renewed license until you
receive your permanent card - the combination of the 8 digit (all
numeric) serial number AS WELL AS your 4 digit validation code is
especially important when you travel to other tracks to race. You
will need to present this receipt at any USA BMX track to register. TIP:
Take a copy of your paper receipt and put it with your race equipment,
or in all of your vehicle consoles, etc. Be creative to make sure that
you are never without it!
Please make sure you are racing with a CURRENT USA BMX number (such
as District, RL Cup, National, last three digits of your NEW serial
number, etc.) Our new racing software contains each riders
assigned/earned numbers which we have to select during
the computer registration process.
Please remember that district rankings change at the end of every
year current district numbers for riders who raced last year are
available on the
USA BMX website. Thanks!

has combined class and
cruiser licenses as of April 1 (so you will need only one license to
race in either class or cruiser, or both!!.) This has affected
license prices effective April 1. FOR RENEWALS...If you currently
hold both a class and cruiser license, you ONLY need to renew ONE of
them. Here are the details, directly from USA BMX:
As of April 1st, USA BMX will be eliminating
the need for separate memberships for class and cruiser. The new USA
BMX membership will work for both bikes. Prior to April 1st, it was
necessary to purchase two memberships; $45 for a 20 inch membership and
then $35 for a cruiser membership. The new membership will allow all
USA BMX members to participate in both class and cruiser with the
purchase of one $60 annual membership. As of April 1st, all current
members will be able to race in both class and cruiser regardless of the
current membership they hold; class and cruiser, cruiser only or class
only. If a rider has both a class and cruiser membership, their new
combined membership will have an expiration from the greater of the
two. For example, if a rider has a class membership which expires May
1, 2013 and a cruiser membership which expires January 11, 2014, the
riders new combined membership for both bikes will expire January 11,
2014. Any rider expiring from April 1st forward will renew at the new
member pricing of $60 and receive the same benefits of racing both class
New rule changes for 2013 -
probably the most noteable change is that USABMX will NO LONGER allow
clips for any Novice rider. For a full explanation of highlighted
rule changes as well as a link to the entire rule book,
check out the USABMX website.

If we cancel racing
before 4pm (for Friday events) or before 8am (for Saturday
events), we will post it here. We will also try to post it on
Facebook as well. This doesn't guarantee
that we won't have to cancel just before an event or during the event due to the weather, but
we will do our best to post any foreseen cancellations here.
SEE YOU on Friday, May
