Riders earn points each time they race at our track as well as other tracks sanctioned by USA BMX/BMX Canada and the points will be accumulated for an overall placing at the end of the season. There are opportunities to race at many different levels and competitions. Following is a list of the different racing series that a rider may enter.
PROVINCIAL CHAMPIONSHIP RACE SERIES (PCR)
Provincial Championship Race series (PCR) will be conducted in each Province, that possesses at least one (1) sanctioned track. Each year a number of PCR races are held across the province to determine overall age group champions in each Province and distribute award rankings to eligible riders. This is a next level of racing where riders compete for a Provincial Championship Series ranking. To be eligible to earn the BC Provincial Championship title and/or a provincial number plate designation, riders must race at least 4 PCR events in BC as well as the PCR Finals in BC to qualify for BC title.
The 2018 BC PCR Final will be hosted at Langley BMX and it will offer triple points.
