BMX Racing: the Sport the Whole Family can Enjoy

FORT WORTH -- If you're over Pokemon Go, and don't think football is for you or your child because of all the safety concerns as of late, then BMX bike racing may be just what you're looking for!

"It's a sport that's very family oriented, and it ranges from children as young as 2 years old and as old as 52 years old," said Porter Gibbins, the founder of Cowtown BMX.

Not only that, but it's growing in popularity by leaps and bounds (no pun intended).

"You can race local, you can race state, you can race regional, you can race national, or you can race on the world level," said Jason Shaw, a BMX biker.

This year's Rio Olympics was the third time BMX was a sport. And Texas' very own Connor Fields took home the gold. It's competitive if you want it to be, and it's fun if you want it to be. Or maybe it's a little of both!

"Off the track, I have really good friends and we're just hanging out. But on the track we're not friends," said a smiling 10-year-old BMX biker Alison Carr.

And if that's for you, well, Shaw may have said it best:

"You know what? Come out and give it a try. Any bike you got, you can come out here and ride this track. Have fun with it."
