Message from Bristol BMX Club – Rules of Racing.

To all parents – if your child is unable to balance on the gate you are allowed to hold their back wheel to enable them to stand safely during the start sequence. You should release the wheel and not push them down the hill. You should also refrain from shouting at them as this can be distracting for other riders.

Once the child is on their way please make your way down to trackside – this leaves the hill free for the other riders to assemble ready for the next moto. Previously there have been instances – falls over the gate and crashes - where riders have been distracted by parents shouting encouragement. For the club and the rider this is good practice for the next level of racing at regional level (where parents are only allowed on the start hill for novice racing and U6 year age group). This advice is given to ensure the safety of the riders which is always our primary concern.

For safety of themselves and other riders the club would also kindly ask that all parents stay behind the track fencing during racing. Crossing the track when potentially other races are underway is not allowed. If there is a crash involving your child please wait to be called onto the track by a marshall. This is good practice and a procedure that is implemented with everyone’s safety in mind.

The finish line is "out of bounds" for parents – riders are completing the races at high speed and often out of control with a short run off area. Shouts from behind the finish line can be distracting for the finish line marshalls who may then get the results wrong. Shouts from the start hill and finish line are very distracting for the starter who has to concentrate on ensuring the gate sequence is done safely, observe what is happening on track (crashes/fallen riders etc) and and make a decision as when to start the next moto.

Your help and consideration in all these matters is very much appreciated.

Gary PhillipsHi Bev - the message is not really directed at anyone - its just a general reminder (or possibly even first knowledge) of the club rules regarding racing - especially for the parents of riders new to the club and BMX. We just want to make sure we limit the risk of anything happening to the riders other than those which they face in actually riding the track!!20 hours ago   ·  1

A request to all parents: please can you ensure that the younger riders do not go on the track between Motos and Finals and slide/run up and down the jumps. While understanding the kids need to let off some steam sliding along the face of the jumps breaks the surface and creates loose dirt. This is then difficult to repair and will take someone a few hours to rectify. Many thanks for your cooperation ... See MoreSee Less

For your information following briefing from SW Region - Clothing Regulations - to clarify: shorts of a tear resistant material are allowed to be worn in racing but knee and shin guards must be worn. There should be no skin showing so shorts will need to be worn in combination with skins/socks. ... See MoreSee Less

Hi all,

My 4 soon to be 5 yr old loves BMX and will be joining you all for race night in half term however, he is still on his 14 inch first bike but does get around the track on his own thanks to Dan's coaching skills.
Anyway we need to get him a race bike soon. Crucial have recommended haro micro mini for him.
Any other recommendations?
Also does anyone know what the Cuda bikes are like. Much cheaper and a bit heavier is all I know. I do prefer their price tag....
Alternatively does anyone have or know of a second hand bike for sale????

Thanks in advance.

Adrian Bill4 to 5 is the border line to a mini which is the next size up it depends on his height really?? Dan's really good a crucial!! Micro minis keep there value too as they are like gold dust!!2 days ago
Adrian BillFor the price the haro is a good little bike!!2 days ago
Michelle FryerHi we brought both our son's haro's from crucial bmx my eldest still races his n my youngest has now out grown his mini micro they are good starting bikes and serve the purpose. I would recommend them and crucial bmx. Happy bike hunting. We will c u next week.2 days ago
Sharon WattsIt all depends if you intended to race regionally or just at Bristol as you may be better off waiting till the end of the season as people tend to change there bikes then so you can normally pick up a second hand one that may even be better than new as they normally add bits x2 days ago   ·  2
Dan HodgeAnother option is to see someone at the track who has a micro mini and some who has a mini and just get him to try it for size. There are plenty of them around. Just come and see me if your around tonight I'll help you out.2 days ago
Katy CarswellFollowing as we are in exactly the same boat! We tried the mini at Crucial and it seemed a bit too big - we thought he would probably be more confident on a micro...2 days ago
