Canadian BMX Championships
The biggest race in Canada goes this weekend in Ridge Meadows (30 mins from Vancouver, BC). The CCA Canadian BMX Championship weekend features a festival-like atmosphere with a Hawaiian Theme Canada Cup on Saturday including a live Surf band, Salmon BBQ and Hawaiian Luau . . . Then on Sunday, the Canadian Championship event. All riders who make their mains receive Canadian National plates by BKS.
The Ridge Meadows track is one of the finest in Canada and the weekend promises to keep everyone entertained. On Sunday plates will be presented on the podium with draw prizes and more. A minumum of $1000 has been added to Pro Men on Sunday.
