To the sport of BMX (Bicycle Moto Cross)
and our track in
Las Vegas, Nevada, Nellis BMX
a sport for all ages.
Some riders start as young as 2 years old and
our oldest rider is 50 plus years!
BMX is a family sport.
no coaches in BMX. Mom and Dad are pit crew and cheering section and
are there to shake your hand when you win and dry your tears when
you lose or feel discouraged.
Riders of the same age and skill level
race their 20" bicycle or 24" cruiser over a 1500 foot
long dirt track of turns and obstacles. If you like riding your bike
around your neighborhood or on a homemade track or jumps, then
you'll like this competitive type of racing on a local, state,
national and international level. This type of racing is a lot safer
than riding on the street, you have to wear protective gear and your
bike must pass a safety inspection.
Nellis BMX is sanctioned by the
National Bicycle League and a member
of Silver State BMX.
The sanctioning body gives BMX racing its
organization. They set the rules, provide insurance, issue
competition licenses, and keeps track of points to determine track
and national rankings. You can contact the NBL at 1-800-886-BMX1.
