BMX is a cycle sport performed on British Motocross bikes. BMX racing is a type of off-road bicycle racing. Races are sprints on purpose-built, off-road, single-lap race tracks. The track usually consists of a starting gate for up to eight racers, a dirt race course made of various jumps and rollers and a finish line. The course has large banked corners that help the riders maintain speed. BMX freestyle is all about tricks and stunts and can be done in various places - on flat paving, in woods, trails and parks. Different environments demand different techniques.
The adrenaline fuelled, extreme sport of BMX racing made its Olympic debut at the Beijing Games in 2008. Over a series of qualifying heats, riders have to navigate an off-road, outdoor course full of humps, bumps and jumps while trying to out-manoeuvre their opponents. BMX has come a long way from the skate parks and dirt roads where it began in 1980s Britain. BMX Freestyle encourages style and creativity - it's admired as a performance by many.
