    Gates at Arvada BMX every Tuesday evening

    To all the people of the gravity/DH/MX/slalom set (and anyone else interested), this is to let ya'll know that Sky High BMX II in Arvada runs gates and races every Tuesday night starting yesterday.

    Here's the deal:
    If you want to race, you'll have to join the NBL and then races are $7 and they run two races every Tuesday night. Gates/practice starts around 5 or so, with racing starting at 7pm. HOWEVER - we talked to them and asked about just doing gate practice, and here's what the said: as long as you have a current UCI-sanctioned license (NORBA is a part of USA Cycling which is a part of UCI) for insurance purposes and can throw them $2 to help the cause then they're down with people coming out and doing gates.

    Myself and couple Mojo Wheels riders (Duc, Coop, and Heidi) went out last night and had a blast running gates, sprinting, jumping, etc. THerre weren't a lot of people out there last night, but the attendance grows as the summer moves along.

    Directions:
    Located in Arvada, CO in Lutz Sports Complex at 58th & Nelson. Take I-70 to Kipling, go north on Kipling to 58th, go west on 58th to first stop light which is Nelson, turn left and drive through the baseball field parking lot to the upper lot.

    Tuesday's Double Header
    Pre-registration until 4:30 p.m. race day 303-331-2305
    Registration @ track 5:30 pm - 6:30pm
    Race @ 7:00p.m.

    Track Layout:
    Shy High BMX II is approx. 1200 ft in length. The track consists of four 180 degree turns giving you five straight aways of BMX action. Begining from a large starting hill you will encounter a large step-up followed by a 5ft tall table top that will drop you into the first turn. Out of the turn you will come up to "DUB ZILLA" our signature big double of the track followed by a small double into another large double. Turn two leads you into the rhythm section which is partially down hill consisting of a roller, table, roller, step-up, roller , and small double out. The fourth straight has a small double leading into "Hamburger Hill" a large triple step-up followed by a table top into the last turn. The final straight will lead you to two sets of doubles just before the finish line.
    The older I get, the faster I was.





    Punch it, Chewie.

    Gate practice at Longmont BMX

    Gate practice out at the Longmont BMX track is also on Tuesday nights for those who live closer to that than Arvada. It starts at 5pm and goes until dark. I don't however know which cadence they are using.

    But with a NORBA License it's only $1. Oh Yeah!!!

    And gate practice out at Dacono is on Thursday night for $1 only as well (if you feel compelled to drive all the way out to Dacono).

    Dacono and Longmont are both ABA tracks and don't use the same cadence as the MSC. And really... Arvada isn't much further (if at all) from Boulder than Longmont, is it?
