It’s the best time of year for BMX racing. The Nanaimo BMX Association is in the midst of its biggest week of the season.
Club members warmed up with the Supercamp clinic that started Monday and the Race for Life charity event on Wednesday night.
Now, the Harbour City Nationals are about to begin, going Friday (July 6) through Sunday at the Marie Davidson BMX Park.
The nationals, part of the American Bicycle Association BMX series, are expected to attract racers from around Western Canada and the U.S.
The event begins with Friday’s pre-race at 6 p.m., but the main events take place Saturday and Sunday, when triple points will be on the line.
Saturday’s racing begins at 11:30 a.m. and Sunday’s action starts at 9 a.m.
There is free admission to watch the racing at the Marie Davidson BMX Park, located at Beban Park.
