Posted on: No Comments

RIVR-BMX

Don’t miss the grand opening of Riverwalk’s newest cycling facility which kicks off with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10am followed by facility tours, cycling demos and track races. The event is FREE and open to the public.

Need a quick primer? BMX (Bicycle Motorcross) racing takes place on a dirt track where cyclists race across hills, jumps and banked turns. BMX racing is one of the fastest growing areas in cycling. The Novant Health Supercross Track will be the only Olympic-caliber training facility on the East coast, and one of only a handful in the United States. This facility will have both an amateur and an elite supercross ramp.

The track is located at 1307 Riverwalk Parkway, Rock Hill, SC. Contact BMX Program Coordinator, Mike King at (803) 325-2630 or by email at info.bmx@cityofrockhill.com with questions.

As you anxiously await the grand opening, get your cycling fix at this week’s National Championships being held at the Giordana Velodrome!
