USA BMX State Finals to be Held in Placer Valley

16 Sep, 2014


Riders to Compete for Spot in Race of Champions

The USA BMX Northern California State Finals are coming to Oak Creek BMX again for 2014.  Oak Creek BMX has a long history of hosting the event because of its ability to gain more points than other tracks in the area, and they have been awarded the rights every year except three since 1985.  

The races will take place from September 19-21.  Last year there was an impressive 600 entries, and it looks as if that number will increase this year.  The participants come from all over Northern California.  There will be many different age groups for both boys and girls.  Depending on the age group and skill class, each rider will have 3 to 5 races until the championships.  The age range for the riders can range anywhere from one and a half years to 70.  The winning riders from this competition will compete in The Race of Champions at the Grand Nationals on Thanksgiving, the largest race in the world hosted in Oklahoma City.  

Oak Creek BMX works hard to be able to host this event, and has to fight off many competitors with tracks, including the likes of Santa Clara, Chico, Manteca, and Napa.  They are always in the top 2% of tracks in the U.S. and Canada.  Be sure to go down to the track to check out all of the BMX action!
