PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles BMX Track is hosting a free “Olympic Day Race” on Tuesday for all BMX racers, beginners to experts.
Registration for the special race starts at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and ends at 6:45 p.m. with the racing following soon after.
“All riders race for free, and this is a perfect day to get your bike out and come find out how thrilling this sport can be,” track operator Geri Thompson said.
Anyone can fill out a one-day membership and race, even non-current ABA/USABMX past members, Thompson said.
“With state races in full swing, there is still plenty of time to get all the races needed to participate in those also,” she added.
The Port Angeles BMX state championship races are scheduled for Sunday, July 26, with a Friday single race and a Saturday donation “Race for Life” race on the same weekend.
“We expect over 200 riders and their families, and are excited to share this weekend with everyone who wants to join us to even watch,” Thompson said about state championship weekend.
“Spectators are free. Advertisers and/or donators are encouraged to contact us; we have several options.”
