The BMX bike is very light
BMX takes cycling into the extreme sports world. The bikes are tough enough to be jumped but light enough to be ridden fast.

BMX riders pull massive aerials on quarter pipes and vertical half pipes. The biggest air at the skate park is normally under a bike.

Racing
Tracks exist all over the country where BMX riders can race over bumps and jumps.

Flatland
Here riders perform tricks on the flat, these can be scored in a competition.
