Like most sporting spaces, BMX local tracks closed last spring due to the pandemic, giving USA BMX members no place to practice or race. To safely get members back on bikes and back to the tracks, USA BMX worked side-by-side with their 320 tracks to ensure members a safe return to the track. To assist tracks with sorting through local rules and regulations from multiple jurisdictions and authorities, the USA BMX team created tools to guide track operators step-by-step through this challenging process with “Ready to Race” guidelines, marketing, and educational resources. The launch of the safety tool kit was just the beginning of a new 2020 for USA BMX. The following months led to safely running 21 stops of the national series all but three of the Gold Cup Championship Series Finals.
“The USA BMX team has a successful track record of running events, growing members, and working with all of our tracks across the country, but when you do all that despite the challenges during a pandemic, that is pretty remarkable,” said Shane Fernandez, USA BMX President. “Our team has reworked and adjusted schedules and events this year to run events safely and align with city protocols, but one thing has been a constant has been the safety of our members, our BMX family, while keeping them on bikes.”
