The Origin of BMX Racing

BMX Racing is a type of bicycle racing that first gained popularity in the 1970s. The term “BMX” was first used in the United States in the late 1960s, when the term was used to describe the bicycle motocross (or “bike motocross”) racing that was becoming popular in California. The term was derived from the abbreviation of “bicycle motocross”, which was used to describe the sport.

The first BMX race was held in 1972 in the state of California. It was organized by the National Bicycle League (NBL) and was the first ever BMX race sanctioned by a national governing body. The popularity of BMX racing quickly spread and within a few years, the sport had become popular across the United States and other parts of the world.

Today, BMX racing is an international sport with events held around the world. The sport is still very popular in the United States and is one of the most popular forms of bicycle racing. It has also been featured in the Olympics since 2008, making it one of the most popular Olympic sports.
