West Kootenay BMX is now open on Monday nights from 6 to 8 p.m.

The program is starting with riding and starting gate practice night with a registration drive and then switch to a race format in the coming weeks.

BMX racing is a great family sport in which all ages can compete. This includes young children on push bikes to the 61 and over class. And with membership, you can race at tracks all over BC, Ontario, and the US.

Come out and demo the track for free and take a spin around the jumps and berms. Mountain bikes, children’s coaster brake bikes, and push bikes are welcome and there will be four sizes of BMX race bikes to try out. Membership is $55 a year and this allows the rider to take part in races and starting gate practice. There is also a free one-day membership which can be a great way to try it out.

The track is located at the Salmo Ski Hill.

For more info call track operator Lyndon Schiewe at 250-357-2874 or and
