What is BMX?

BMX is short for bicycle motocross. A type of off-road bicycle racing, the sport is a variation of traditional motocross that sees cyclists doing laps around courses with hills, jumps and banked corners.

Unlike traditional bicycles, a BMX "class" bike is one that is sturdy, built for quick handling and utilises a more lightweight wheel. 

A truly international sport, BMX racing became an Olympic sport in 2008 during the Beijing games.
