Welcome to Blackpool BMX Club
Blackpool BMX Club Balance Bike Racing off to a Flyer
The Blackpool BMX Club Balance Bike and Mini Wheel Race Series got off to a fantastic start. We had over 25 riders taking part which was great for the first event.
With riders ranging from 1 to 5 years old the cold weather didn't seem to dampen spirits and they all raced their little hearts out. We had some super close finals with the kids banging bars with each other down the last straight to the finish line. The pedal bike race was off the hook with some super fast racing, I cannot believe how good these dudes are at such a young age.
There were medals for everyone on the day and also a "Rider of the Day" Trophy that went to Charlie Read. Well done Charlie, a future BMX star in the making.
Big thanks to Will over at MX500 for sponsoring the event,they are providing a fantastic Strider bike as a prize at the end of the series. Also thanks to the GHP race team that turned up in force to help the riders.
There is also a Micro Mini Race Bike to be won in our raffle.
The next round of the series is on Sunday 9th February, let's see if we can get even more riders on the track and make the racing even better. Pre-Registration for this event can be found
