July update

Saturday, 05 July 2014

It's July and the heat is on! In the past few weeks the track received a major overhaul and the news is that it's fast and smooth. Come out and try it if you haven't already!

On July 12 & 13 we will be hosting the Provincial Cup 3 & 4 and Canada Cup 1 & 2 races. It's going to be a great event with some awesome riding for the money purses. Rumor is that Tory Nyhaug (London Olympics 2012) will be coming and some of some of Canada's other top riders. Spectators are welcome so grab your hat and come to the track!

Need some more training or wondering what to do this July? Sign up for a BMX training camp! We are hosting a Elite/Expert Camp July 9 & 10, and a SUPERCAMP for all abilities on July 14, 15 & 16. More information and registration details are available at SUPERCAMP.

Calgary BMX Members - we are still looking for more volunteers to help us run this race, to volunteer in the concession during SUPERCAMP and for the bike shed. If you can help out for a few hours on any of the dates mentioned above, please let us know ASAP. The bike Shed also needs some new hands for the remainder of the season. We have had around 70 riders at our Tuesday evening recreational coaching clinics and our last Thursday night district race had 57 racers. If you have a few hours to spare and are comfortable fixing a flat or doing minor bike maintenance, please consider volunteering some hours. Bike shed hours are 5:45(ish) until 8pm on Tuesday (especially critical), Wednesday and Thursday evening. Many of our new riders rely on the bike shed for gear, technical help and loaner bikes. If you can help, contact our new volunteer coordinator, Angelina, at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

We are sollicting donations for our raffle table and Booze Wheelbarrow fundraiser at the Provincials. If you can donate an item to our raffle table or do you know someone else who could, then download the Sponsorship Letter from our website. All types of donations are welcome: gift certificates, gift baskets, tickets, lodging, merchandise, bike parts & gear, sporting goods, toys, services and more. Please hand in all donations to Ann-Cay ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) at the BMX Track Office. We also plan to raffle off tickets for a wheelbarrow full of booze at the provincial. So bring in a bottle or case of something to the race office and don't foget to buy a ticket at the race for a chance to win it back! All donations are due by July 10th.

Track closed for maintenance June 23-27.

Friday, 20 June 2014

After some unexpected delays we finally have a firm date for our track resurfacing and track repairs. The track will be closed for riding - June 23 to 27 however this will be a great opportunity for us to tackle some other projects like painting, fixing the start hut and some off track projects. There is lots of work that needs to be done in advance of our Canada Cup and Provincial Races on July 12 and 13th.

The changes to the track will benefit all riders so please come out and support the club at the work parties we'll be hosting each evening. Work parties will run from approx. 5:30-8:30. It's Ok to come late  - that is better than not at all! Volunteer hours count towards your volunteer commitments.

We recommend good shoes or boots, gloves and a can-do attitude.

Please spread the work about the closure and come to our 4 evenings of work parties
