That’s a wrap on Strider Cup. Thanks for coming out everyone.
June 23 Edmonton BMX is hosting the 3rd Annual Strider Challenge. This free event lets your 3-5 year child onto the track for a series of short races with the fastest kids advancing to a final race where we will award a very large trophy. We have a few bouncy houses being brought in from our friends at Kanga Inflatables at 11:30. As well we have internationally acclaimed balloon artist @phileasflash to make balloon art for the kids coming at noon.
This is a FREE EVENT, you just need to come in and sign a waiver. You don't even need a bike or a helmet because we can lend you those things!!!
You will need a couple of dollars for hot dogs and burgers though.
And if you want to bring a donation for the Edmonton Food Bank, please feel free.
Registration opens at 11:30-12:30, and racing will start at 12:30. Event goes until 3pm, it's unlikely we will be racing that long but we have the bouncy houses and Phileas booked till then.

So......... you guys can all have the night off. If it stopped raining right this second (it won’t) and the sun comes out (it won’t) and it suddenly becomes 28’C outside (it won’t) we could maybe for half a second think about opening the track before deciding that it would be a dumb idea.
Poor Audrey. This is the 5th busted bone at our track this week.
Maybe we should have kept the track “Lippy” to slow you guys down.
Two in one week!!
Over the years we have noticed that the seasons injuries are all the same. One year it’s wrists, the next it’s collar bones. This year it is apparently legs.
Poor Brady wrecked himself on Sunday morning warming up for camp. The bright side is he has Carter to hang out in the stands with for the next month.
Get better quick champ.
Yegbmx had @tnyhaug49 and @jamespalmer66 out for the weekend. Those that got in were quite impressed. We had them doing 3 sessions today, which means the boys were at the track for 12 hours. So if they are super tired tomorrow, you know why.
A reminder to those doing the camp this weekend, am starts at 9. PM starts at 1. And the Sat evening starts at 5pm. Concession will be open all day, and we’ll have the BBQ ablaze.
Tonight is the night! Aurora 1. These kids are ready to defend their turf.
Reg is $5. And as of this second, etransfer reg will NO LONGER be accepted or processed. Window reg only from this moment on. Window will open at 5, and close at EXACTLY 6:30. There will be zero exceptions. We expect 140-180 riders tonight so we are going to need a minute to get motos built. DON’T FORGET YOUR LICENSE!!!!!
Remember. These are not for profit races. Every single penny goes back into prizes for the series final.
Halfway through round 2 and not a cloud in the sky. Looks like we may get ALL THREE MOTOS RUN!!!!!!!
Friday night is race #1 in the 2019 Aurora Series. You don’t want to miss it. I’m trying to bribe @tnyhaug49 and @jamespalmer66 to have a main event pump race on micros. So far they have been unreceptive to my charms and offers of wares. Plus it’s your first chance to show off your New @wrexgear jersey that just showed up. The merch tent will be up and we just got a fresh restock on hoodies and tumblers from @pinnaclepromo @stalbertbmx @stonyplainbmx @reddeerbmx you guys can come too, I guess.
You can pre-reg and pay your $5 tonight at the track so you won’t have to wait in line for an hour on Friday.
