The 91st annual Westfield Fair is coming up on August 17th-19th.
For this weekend we are racing on SUNDAY with registration from 9
to 11 am. This will be a single district points race but we will
be offering TRIPLE track points! Come on out and check out the
fair. Make sure to show your USA BMX membership card at the gate
for the best rate. After the race, you can stay in the fair to
enjoy all of the food and fun!!
City BMX is always looking for volunteers to assist during each event -
no BMX track can operate without them!! No experience
required - we'll show you what to do! Get the best view of the track
and the races!!
• TRACK POINTS have been updated as of our July 27th race!

City BMX will be hosting the 2018 Massachusetts State Championships on
September 1st. You do not need to live in Massachusetts to race
this event (but you need to live in MA/NH/ME to participate in the
Mass. state series).

membership gets a free subscription to PULL magazine, the official

Make sure to bring your USA BMX membership card each week when you sign
up for racing!! As an added measure, take a picture of your card
with your phone, save a photocopy in your glove box, get an extra copy
using your account on usabmx.com, or all of the above!

which was published in several regional newspapers. Spread the
word and get your friends and family to try out the great sport of BMX
• Congratulations to our 2017 track champions! Here are the final points standings.
Important reminder about plate numbers: A rider’s current earned or
sanction issued number must appear on that rider’s number plate during
all competition. Examples of earned numbers include district, state,
national age group, national, gold cup, race of champions, pro numbers,
etc. – these numbers change every year and represent each rider’s hard
work at earning their ranking. On the other hand, your sanction issued
number is generally the last three digits of your serial number. (See
pages 17-18 of the USA BMX rulebook for additional details). If you are not
running your sanction issued number, you need to update your plate each
year with an earned number - running an outdated earned number is not
permissible. We will be enforcing this rule at all Whip City events.
If you need to update your plate, please do so before your next event;
plates and numbers are commonly available from our local on site bike shop vendor on
Friday evenings. Another alternative is to attach a “pie plate” to your
bike with written numbers if you are not able to update your plate
before the next race. If you would like to check your current district ranking,
visit the USA BMX website.
• 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!
