Awesome night!

My son, novice 12yr old, won his first main last night! Now that was cool! All the training paid off.....2 months ago he started with zero track experience and having no real techniques down besides pedaling a bike and staying upright......hoping my 4 yr old follows in his foot steps!! Loving the BMX scene/community!!!

That's awesome!  Sounds like everyone is having a good time. Now get the wife on a bike!  I couldn't, but some do.

Very cool

Re: Awesome night!

So we went to a state qualifier yesterday and he placed 3rd in his 12 novice, pretty cool to see all those riders! I'm not exactly sure how it all works but I was told he needs to make to 4 state qualifier mains to be ranked in state?

He needs to race four qualifiers, doesn't matter if he makes the main. He can get four bonus points, one per race for four local races, after eight local races. His best four qualifiers will be counted. He has to race the Final to get a number plate. Only the top half of the qualified riders get a plate. this is how USABMX does it in FLA.

Remember only the top half get a plate and his points will be with the intermediates.
