Become a Sarasota Track Champion


Want to be the Sarasota Track Champion?

Starting Friday Sarasota BMX will start a new race challenge. The winners of the Sarasota Track Champion challenges will get their names prominently displayed on a plate at the track. The track champion classes will be free mixed opens. At any Friday race night the Track Champ can be challenged by one or more riders for title. If the Champ is not present, the challengers will battle for the title and the absent Champ must earn it back next week. Any Champ that wins more than three weeks in a row will get bumped up to the next age class. Any Champ that gets bumped up has three tries in the older class for the title before they can move back down. Riders may challenge up in age class if they think they have what it takes. Challenge races will be run first.

The classes will be as follows:
7 and under
8 to 9
10 to 11
12 to 13
14 to 15
16 and over
