I've been MTBing for quite a few years, now. Pretty much weekly, I'd go to a trail close by and just ride for a few hours.
Well, ever since I destroyed my old MTB beyond any possible repair, I've been quite interested in BMX Racing.
Anyways, I do want to start, but I have no idea how to.
I know where the local track is, but I don't know if they offer lessons, and I don't know if they just let you practice.
What I am wondering is, how would I start BMX Racing.
Should I get my own bike first, practice a bit, then enter a race? (The track has two or so every week)
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

BTW
The track is the Calgary BMX As$ociation, if that helps a bit.

yeah, get your bike and then go to the track in any free time and practice until you feel confident enough to enter a race
