Find a track near you and look up their hours of operation… Okay, as you probably saw, your local track is open on certain days and times for practice and others for both practice and racing. Because the SA BMX season runs January 1st thru November, and because BMX racing is an individual sport, there’s no better time to start riding and racing than right now. You don’t need to call or sign up before you go to the track. In fact, all you need to get started is your bike, long pants and a long sleeve shirt, and any approved bicycle helmet. Whatever you’re riding now will do fine but be sure to check out THE BIKE and THE GEAR to see just how cool and advanced BMX race bikes, components, and gear have become.
