Canadian BMX Championship Race Comes to Kingston June 20-21

KINGSTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 13, 2009) - Kingston BMX will host the Canadian BMX Championship Race in Kingston June 20-21, 2009. Riders from across Canada will attend this event. We are proud to list Supercross BMX as the title sponsor for the race, along with Alienation BMX and No Fear Energy supporting this World Class Event.

Kingston BMX has hosted the 1st Olympic Point Race, ERA - the Elite (Race) Riders Association, Camp Cools, the Ontario O-Cup Series and Championships, and the Ontario Summer Games.

The Canadian BMX Championship Race is one of the most prestigious events in BMX racing, with Canadian riders competing for the coveted top spots. Past events have been marked by very exciting racing, and last minute lead changes that have kept the fans on their feet with every pedal of a bike. The elite riders of Canada will be on hand, along with Canadian Olympians Samantha Cools and Scott Erwood. Future Olympians, our boys and girls from five-years-old and up, will also compete in the competition.

Kingston BMX has rebuilt the track to outstanding standards several times over the last few years. The track was redesigned last year from the best in the business, Olympic track designer Tom Ritzenhaler, along with the Dew Tour and Red Bull event builders Dave King, Elf, Eric Bress, Clint, Gilly, and British Columbia's BMX Director "Bad News" Adam Muys. This year Adam flew in from B.C. to redesign the ERA track for the Canadian finals, rebuilding areas to keep the riders flying. The pro section is gong to be the main line of the race, so it will not only be fast, but very high-flying for the older riders.

The event has generated huge interest from everyone in the BMX community, including magazines, bike and clothing manufacturers. This promises to be a great family event, and food will be available on site.

Mark your calendars on June 20-21 for the best racing in Canada that weekend.
