**NO PRACTICE & RACING THIS WEEKEND** Firestorm Nationals, Kelowna, BC - Aug 11-13th
ALL current BMX Canada members are welcome to participate in this Series. Even beginners/striders are welcome at National races!! Register just like you normally would for a weekly local race. We strongly recommend you to pre-sign up online to save your time and avoid a long lineup. Online Pre-Registration ends on Tues, August 8th at 4pm. On-site registration will be available Friday and Saturday during the event, but expect a long lineup!!
Some riders are following the series to be ranked nationally but others just race one or two Nationals simply for the competition. So even if you are a new BMX rider, you are welcome to race at this event. There will be a pre-race (double point race) on Friday, National (triple point race) on Saturday and Sunday. Each race is separate and distinct, which means that you don't need to race all three days; choose one race to get a taste or ride all three! It is a big event and there will be lots of riders! Come race and see how you compete with athletes from across the nation!!
North Shore BMX volunteers will set up 1-2 tents for riders and their family to rest and park their bikes. Please feel free to join and hang out with us!! (We provide tents so just bring your chairs, if you can! )
If you have any questions please ask us through our FB page or send us an email. We hope to see lots of riders from NSBMX participate this series!
