Thank you to all who participated in the 2014 Race for Life!
2012 riders at Whip City’s Race for Life raised $5,819 for the Leukemia
and Lymphoma Society. We surpassed that in 2013 with $6,613 in
contributions – thanks to our riders and contributors we were the second
highest fundraiser in the nation last year! Without a doubt, every
pledge counts! We sincerely appreciate your hard work in supporting this
worthy and humbling event, drawing attention to the importance of
helping others and remembering the things that matter most in life.
Important reminder about plate numbers: A rider’s current earned or
sanction issued number must appear on that rider’s number plate during
all competition. Examples of earned numbers include district, state,
national age group, national, gold cup, race of champions, pro numbers,
etc. – these numbers change every year and represent each rider’s hard
work at earning their ranking. On the other hand, your sanction issued
number is generally the last three digits of your serial number. (See
pages 18-20 of the rule book for additional details). If you are not
running your sanction issued number, you need to update your plate each
year with an earned number - running an outdated earned number is not
permissible. We will be enforcing this rule at all Whip City events.
If you need to update your plate, please do so before your next event;
plates and numbers are also available from Custom Cycle bike shop on
Friday evenings; another alternative is to attach a “pie plate” to your
bike with written numbers if you are not able to update your plate
before the next race. If you would like to check your district ranking,
visit the USA BMX website.
Track points will begin at the Race for Life on Saturday, May 24!!

Whip City will be host to

• It is very important to bring the
paper receipt you received for your new or renewed license until you
receive your permanent card - the combination of the 8 digit (all
numeric) serial number AS WELL AS your 4 digit validation code is
especially important when you travel to other tracks to race. You
will need to present this receipt at any USA BMX track to register. TIP:
Take a copy of your paper receipt and put it with your race equipment,
or in all of your vehicle consoles, etc. Be creative to make sure that
you are never without it!
Save time at registration! Download a
page filled with four separate sign-up forms; complete the forms at home
(either on your computer or by hand), cut them out, and have them ready
to go when you get to registration!

If we cancel racing
before 4pm (for Friday events) or before 8am (for Saturday
events), we will post it here. We will also try to post it on
Facebook as well. This doesn't guarantee
that we won't have to cancel just before an event or during the event due to the weather, but
we will do our best to post any foreseen cancellations here.
SEE YOU IN 2015!!!
