BMX was derived from Motocross Racing.

 

BMX bicycle races are sprint races on purpose-built single-lap race tracks. The track is usually between 300 – 400m and consists of a ramp-style starting gate for up to eight racers, and is made of various jumps and rollers and a finish line. BMX racing rewards strength, quickness, and bike handling.

BMX racing became a medal sport at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing under the UCI sanctioning body.


 

 

BMX Western Australia is the umbrella organisation for the sport of BMX racing in Western Australia, and currently has 20 affiliated clubs across the State.
