This will be a special two-race event on the final day of the 2nd Annual BMX Gold Coast Cup series. That’s two Pro-Am races in one day along SoCal’s Gold Coast where the racing will be hot but the daytime temps should be a perfect 72 degrees! With Mike Redman in the house to announce, the good times are set to roll first at Santa Barbara’s Elings Park BMX Raceway, 10:00am-11:30am sign-ups, racing ASAP. The action then shifts a short 35 miles south along the 101 Coast Highway to Camarillo’s Freedom Park BMX Raceway, 5:00pm-7:00pm sign-ups, racing ASAP. Open to 15 and over expert amateurs and pros, the entry fee for the two-race format/day is just $20. Final rankings and the money will be awarded based on combined finishes from both races.
