Tuesday Night Races Cancelled


The June 23 Tuesday Night race has been canceled due to the small turn out we have been receiving plus the extreme heat. We are going back to just practice on Tuesday evenings. Practice 6 to 8 pm.

Good news for July. The races will all be Trophy races. $7 for the first entry and if a rider wants to race class and cruiser it will only cost $10. We will have 4 races in July, 10, 17, 24, 31. These 4 races will include Strider racing.

Registration and Practice 9am to 10:30am. Race at 11am. No entry fee. Our spokesperson during the Opening Ceremonies will be Paul Schulte, a 2x Paralympian gold medalist.

Mother's Day Results


Sarasota BMX proudly congratulates our brave mothers who raced the Mother's Day race on Sunday at Cape Coral. It was the high light of the day. There were more people standing along the fence for this event then for the Pros. Sorry, pros but the mothers took priority this day even with the podium presentation of gift cards. We think you all agree it was their day!

There were four groups and this is how our girls placed. Stefanie - 1st, Jana - 1st, Kathy - 2nd, Jen - 3rd, Carole - 5th, and Tammy - 2nd . We are hoping they will become members and we will have female cruiser classes each Friday night.

We are so proud of our Sarasota girls. They did such a fine job!!

Can you Topple the Champs?


The results of the first ever Sarasota Track Champion Challenges are in! The riders had a great time and gave the spectators an awesome great show! The race gave the riders from around the area an opportunity they have asked for, to race up in class and really challenge themselves. The excitement and energy from the older riders was contagious. The challenge races were run in the break between regular motos and the mains. By the time we ran the races we had 21 challengers. All during the motos the younger riders kept adding themselves to the race as the energy built. There was even a roll out for the 16 and over class. Congratulations to our Sarasota BMX Track Champions!

The Track Champions
7 and Under: Colin Gilliland
8 to 9: Cooper Woolf
10 to 11: Tyler Harnage
12 to 13: Wesley Harnage
14 to 15: Open (three riders from this class challenged up)
15 and over: Robert Schaefer

We hope to see you at our next Friday race May 17th. There is no race next Friday because of the SSA state qualifier. Who wants the title?
