WITH BIG REWARDS, COMES A LITTLE BIT OF RISK. YOUR SAFETY IS OUR CONCERN.
FACT: BMX racing isn’t any more dangerous than other youth sports. Statistics have shown that kids in the traditional (less “extreme”) sports such as basketball, football, baseball and soccer suffer more injuries than in BMX racing. The reason why, perhaps, is that USA BMX requires protective gear. You can’t go on the track without it.
While the level or amount of safety gear is up to each rider, all riders must at least wear the following basic gear:
An approved helmet
long sleeve shirt
As racers increase their skill level (and speed) they often choose to wear additional protection including goggles, gloves, racing jerseys/pants, and arm/chest/leg padding.
