DIRECTIONS TO THE TRACK:

Whittier Narrows BMX is located inside the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area in South El Monte, approximately 12 miles east of Los Angeles. To find the track, take Rosemead Blvd. south from the San Bernardino freeway (10) or north from the Pomona freeway (60) to the Whittier Narrows Park Main entrance on the west side. (When entering the park, turn right at the first stop sign, then follow the road as it circles the soccer fields to a second stop sign. Turn left (south) and the track will be on the right.

It's a really important day for people who relish BMX culture. You will enjoy it. That's a guarantee.

Also... bring sun screen for you and your kids. This is a family friendly event. All are welcome, but please keep an eye on your kids and don't let them get jelly on somebody's $500 og pad set, or knock over a row of priceless show builds. :wink:

Pre-reg mail ins must be post marked on or before May 14th!

 

 


What is the advantage of pre-registration? That's the main way that this event can support itself. Beyond you guys who are supportive enough to register - I personally pay for everything else.

Also it REALLY helps us better prepare for the size of the crowd and we appreciate it. However, it is also a better value. Registering the day of the event on site will be more costly.

If you want a shirt please pre-register. We will have a limited number of shirts available the day of the event, but we ALWAYS sell out. Last year we sold out at 10 am. Pre-register to guarantee that you get what you want.

 

 

 

Thank you. Please pick up your registration packet at the BMX Society booth the morning of June, 2nd at the event site @ Whittier Narrows BMX.

 

The event will open at 8:30 am. People taking part in the judged bike show must pick up their registration pack and have their bikes set up for judging by 10:30 am.The bikes will be judged from 10:30 am to 12:30pm.

Here is the tentative schedule, this is just a working frame work, we always adjust on the fly so none of this is absolutely set in stone:

 

  • The event opens at 8:30
  • Collector / spectator set up begins
  • There is track practice time and registration up to about 10:30 am.
  • Bike show judging begins at 11 am
  • Old School Race at 11:30 if there are enough participants
  • 1:00 - Sidehack Race
  • Bicycle Source Freestyle Ramp riding will begin and continue all day (1/4 ramp, box jump, etc)
  • Sometime between 1 and 1:30 pm we will present Mike Devitt with BMXS Life time achievement award.

  • 2:30 - Anouncement of Bike Show winners

Just a note that smoking AND drinking are banned in the park. Yes, you read that right... cigarettes are banned in the Whittier Narrows Park.

Welcome to California. ;)

Also please note that the park is under Federal jurisdiction. No kidding. So... the usual state/city leniency for your prescription hemp may not fly.

Be smart.

This is actually not so different than the rules for any of our other venues.

 

Discretion + ingenuity + absolutely packing out your waste containers = everybody content and we can come back next year.

I was just at the park on Monday. I was wondering does anybody know where we will be setting up our bikes for display?

There is a real small area around the track, but across from it there is the grass

area..

Just trying to get a heads...

Yes both options will be available. The majority of displays will probably be over on the grassy park side.

I had so much fun this weekend. I'm glad I decided to come in on Thursday this time around. My first time 2 years ago was all a big blur with so much to take in. It was really fun to see the first timers like Trevor, Benny, and Joe P and know what I must've looked like in 2010.

 

I have only one or two pics. I'm pretty much planning on snaking everyone else's. The handful I have are gems. I'll post them in a day or two when I get a chance to sit down in front of the PC.

My dad has been talking about this since we finally moved to the west coast. We might need to bring a horse trailer for all the bikes and parts... :nah.I.mean:
