BMX race in Tucson

Rylan and I went with Kevin, Ian and Conner to see the ABA BMX Southwest Regionals. They had a blast. Rylan is already looking forward to competing next year.

It was really neat. Lots of participants. The races only last for 45 seconds or so and they just run one heat after another for hours on end. They only stop if someone crashed and is still on the course.

Racers aged from 4 or 5 to 60+. The teenagers were by far the fastest (15 - 18) but BMX is all about the little kids. There were lots of kids in the 6 to 13 age range.

Lots of crashes but also lots of safety gear. Only a few people were hurt.
