The date June 17th, 2011 will forever be remembered as “V-Day” for BMX racers. For that is the day that our sport became one sanction; with liberty and justice for all. Victory for all. No one can deny that both the ABA and NBL have been in serious competition with each other over the years. While each sanction had its unique qualifying system, style of tracks and different racing atmospheres, the United States has always been forced to decide between one or the other. Much depended on where you lived. But not any more. Like so many professional sports leagues, the two have now finally joined together.
USA BMX operates out of the ABA headquarters in Gilbert, Arizona. With over 380 sanctioned tracks around the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, USA BMX serves as the sole sanctioning body for these tracks and its 70,000 members. USA BMX will coordinate the national, regional, state, and local scheduling for all tracks as well as manage the 2012 U.S. Olympic BMX Trials (in conjunction with the United States Olympic Committee and USA Cycling).
