yup. its not allowed before you are intermediate ranked or higher. i THINK there might be an age limit also. Like if you're an 8 year old Intermediate you're still not allowed to use them? IDK.

go look at youtube for national or olympic level BMX rcing. they are ALLL decked out. full carbon frames/forks/wheels/bars. crazy

My nickname in seventh grade was BMX Beek (lol, seriously) but once I got a real dirt bike and a drivers license, that shit got dusty real quick. Good luck, but it seems pretty close to running 400 yard track meet races to me...in other words, mostly fitness, not so much balls or riding ability. I’d be running close to last place these days, especially since my MCL has had me sidelined from hockey and snowboarding for the last little while. I am looking forward to getting back on the street bicycle this spring though, for the exercise.
