Racers can get ready as BMX registration opens on Monday, February 20.
Rhonda Laurell, Club Volunteer, says although they had an amazing year in 2016 with 157 riders representing Cochrane BMX, they would like to see membership rise.
"There are really no limits for BMX because it is a really flexible sport; we don't necessarily have everyone out on any one race or training night, the more people we have in the club the better racing it makes for the club."
If you are new to the world of BMX, Laurell says a two wheeling 4 year old is the minimum age to become a registered racer.
"You have to an Alberta Bicycle Association licence to be covered by insurance and they don't cover anyone younger than 4. Now that is the official start to racing, you can come out before 4 to do some open track riding."
Laurell adds it will be great season on the track as many riders advanced in rank and are looking to hit the track at a higher level. The Club is also hosting the first Provincial Races on June 23/24/25 which will bring in roughly 300-400 racers.
You can register at Spray Lake Sawmills Family Sports Centre on the 20th from 10:30am-1:30pm. Laurell says as soon as the snow disappears and track maintenance can be completed, race season will commence.
