BMX in Scotland


BMX racing is an extremely exciting sport open to riders of all ages, making it great fun for all the family. Up to eight riders race, Moto-Cross-style, around a 300-400m track, with jumps, bump and berms (banked corners). The excitement and popularity of BMX racing have caught the attention of the International Olympic Committee and BMX is now an Olympic sport.

With many clubs and tracks up and down the country, it is very easy to get involved. You will find out most of what's needed to get started in this fantastic sport below.
