The Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games BMX Sport Organizing Committee, through Toronto 2015 IGNITE Community Partnership initiative, is pleased to invite GTA families to an afternoon of BMX fun and games at Joyride150 Indoor Bike Park in Markham, Ontario on January 10th, from 2-4 pm [Note: Standard admission fees will apply to all riders]. Join us to celebrate the new, world-class BMX track currently being built at Centennial Park in Etobicoke, which will host the PanAm BMX race.
For one afternoon only, a start gate will be set up on the Joyride150 pump track. See how your time compares to that of Cory Walsh, member of Canada's National BMX Team and member of CIBC Team Next! Prizes will be awarded for the best times and no BMX experience is necessary to have fun.
Come meet Cory, grab some TO2015 swag and learn all about the new, world-leading BMX track that features an 8 metre start hill - that's almost three stories high!
"This will be the best track in the world, and it will be right on our back yard," says Brendan Arnold, BMX SOC Chair and Team Ontario coach. "This afternoon at Joyride150 will be a fantastic opportunity for everyone to experience how fast and daring these athletes really are!"
