The Cochrane BMX track is hoping to see many riders this spring/summer as they have just opened their registration for the 2021 season.
The president of Cochrane BMX, Marcie Davis explains what they are all about “We are a family-friendly-oriented group of people who love riding bikes and cheering for all of the riders around the track. We have ages from four to seniors from novice-beginner level up to expert and elite level riders so we cover the whole spectrum.”
“If you love riding bikes and friendly competition then you would love getting into BMX.”
Cochrane BMX announced earlier this month the opening of their 2021 season for riders of all ages and experience levels.
“This season we will be doing some coaching and training. We'll do some form of racing, and we'll also have lots of open tracks where people can just come and ride”
“We're planning for as normal-ish of a season as we can get. But of course, we have to wait and see what the regulations will be once we get out on the track.”
To go along with training, she is also hoping to see the full return of racing in Cochrane.
“We are committing to do some racing, in what capacity, we don't know. We don’t know if it will be full gate. When I say full gate that would be eight people on the track or half gates. We did the half gates last year where we only had four people on there so that we could socially distant.”
She says they have big plans for their summer camps.
“We have Canadian Olympian Tory Nyhaug coming in June. This will be his third summer coming to hang out with our kids and teach them a few things.”
Cochrane BMX is also planning an all-girl camp where they have seen interest from riders of all ages. “The last year we had the youngest four and we even have moms joining that camp so it was pretty cool.”
