Get Stylish for the Grand Opening! Grab an SRQ Jersey now!


Who needs a SRQ jersey? I am sure some riders are ready for the next size up. We will be taking orders starting Saturday. We would like to see all the riders in these jerseys plus the parents in the pit shirts for our Grand Opening (ribbon cutting) ceremonies which will be on August 27th. This is also our Gold Cup Regional race. The county Parks and Rec are planning a fun day for everyone and we want our SRQ family to all look really sharp.

We will be at the track Saturday, June 25th for a work day. We need many volunteers to help freshen up the place as opening day will be here soon. You can stop by and order your jerseys, they all need to be pre-paid as they are custom made. We do take credit cards. Same as before you can put you first/last name or nickname on the back. Your entire name gets placed on the inside of the collar. They are the coolest jerseys and you won't want to miss out. The order needs to be placed no later then August 1st. We sell these jerseys to anyone who wants one you do not have to be a BMXer riding at Sarasota BMX. That is why you see them on riders from Springfield, IL and Akron, OH. Shown are samples of the long sleeve and the pit shirt.

Sarasota BMX All Over the News!


SNN, The Suncoast News Network got to speak to the Double Olympic Champion Maris Strombergs during some track testing. We're looking forward to have Maris back later this year for the World Cup finals. See video above.

Channel 8 from the Tampa Bay Area stopped by the track on Friday to check out the renovated track and to take in the training by the Latvian and New Zealand National teams. Sarah Walker from New Zealand, 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist was there for some training for the UCI BMX Worlds Championships which will be held next week in Medellin, Colombia. A quote from Sarah during her interview should not just be for BMX, we need to apply it to our everyday life. "It's not about the medal, it's about the whole journey leading into it."

Work Party this Saturday March 5th


Work Party at Track on Saturday March 5th starting at 8am. We will be painting the Concession and Registration building. We need volunteers to help freshen up our facility for the Grand Opening. So anyone who can paint, wear some old clothes and come join us. Martin will be adding trim inside the reg bldg, he needs some help, also. The track is mostly finished and in order to keep it safe from the weather for another few weeks we need to cover it with tarps and sand bags. We need some strong guys in the morning who can help with getting the tarps and sand bags in place. This has to be done before we get rain. We certainly will appreciate all your help.
