BMX Racing

Is it increasing in popularity after the Olympics? How many people on the board race or have a background? How did you enjoy the Oly final? Are you psyched for next season?

Just in general discuss racing!

Good to know. Is there any places that have more people willing to discuss BMX racing?

It doesn't seem to be any more popular in my side of town after the Olympics has been aired. My time was very brief for bmx racing but I have followed it a bit throughout the years. Count me in if you want to talk about bmx racing.

Bmx museum has a good forum for race talk.
http://bmxmuseum.com/forums/viewforum.php?id=59

Fatbmx has a really good section on BMX Racing updated daily.
http://www.fatbmx.com/modules/news/i...p?storytopic=3

Those are my two sources for now.

I think the Olympics helped out BMX a lot. I know a few more people in my school actually have an idea of what it is now. If anybody asks what it is, I have them go on youtube and watch some videos of it. They usually say it looks really cool. But thanks for the props Punx.

I am glad that the Olympics has become more professional and kids racing now have an ambitious goal to chase after. Also, it brought to light the need for cycling/bmx specific training. It's really great for the sport and for the kids out there doing it.
