USA Cycling adds collegiate category to BMX National Championships
USA Cycling is pleased to announce the addition of a collegiate category at its 2012 USA Cycling BMX National Championships. The event, scheduled for March 31 in Chula Vista, Calif., will take place on a traditional BMX track and will be held in conjunction with the UCI BMX Supercross event at the same time.
“Since the addition of a collegiate category to the Cyclo-cross National Championships in 1996, collegiate cyclists have been able to compete for national titles in each cycling discipline except for BMX,” explained USA Cycling’s Managing Director of National Events, Micah Rice. “Now, with a collegiate category at BMX Nationals, student athletes will compete for their schools in all five disciplines of the sport.”
“College scholarships for BMX racers have always been a dream for our sport,” commented American Bicycle Association CEO, Bernard Anderson. “With the addition of collegiate BMX racing, we are one step closer to seeing BMX scholarships become reality.  These are exciting times for the sport of BMX and this is just one more thing for BMX racers to aspire to.”
In order to participate in the collegiate category at the USA Cycling BMX National Championships, an athlete must be a full-time student. For full details on how to participate, click here.
