The South Park Parks and Recreation District would like to announce the opening of “South Park ABA BMX – The highest competition BMX on the planet!” Located in Fairplay, at the South Park Recreation Center, opening for the 2011 race season. This track has been granted sanctioning by the number one sanctioning body in American BMX, The American Bicycle Association (ABA).
Our track currently has 27 sanctioned events scheduled for the 2011 race season with our first race scheduled for Sunday, May 22nd, 2011. Races are scheduled thereafter on every Sunday and every other Wednesday. We have even been approved for a State qualifying race in our first year of operation. The track grand opening party will be held on Saturday, May 7th with demos, DJ, and food. No races are held on the grand opening day.
BMX over the last twenty five years has grown into a global sport allowing individuals to participate in any age group and any skill level. As ABA likes to say, “No one rides the bench.” BMX also provides an opportunity for families to spend time together and race together as a team! Mom and dad are a rider’s number one sponsor.
ABA BMX in Colorado has begun to be a dominant sport in the high country as well as along the entire front range. South Park BMX will be attracting riders from all over the state as well as out of state. Colorado currently boast 14 sanctioned tracks and South Park BMX will be the newest addition.
Having an ABA BMX track in Park County will bring riders and their families, giving our local economy a much needed boost. We look forward to seeing you all at the races.
