Glossary

BELOW IS IS A LIST OF DIFFERENT RACES A RIDER CAN RACE AT AND THE AWARDS THEY CAN EARN!


DISTRICT POINTS
Riders earn points racing at local races and special events. These points are compiled yearly, (the BMX season is year-long, January 1st to December 15th). A rider's yearly points total will determine the number displayed on the bicycle 'number plate' for the following year.
All riders compete for awards and ABA points. Points are published in the BMXer magazine which each rider receives monthly. There a rider can check and compare his or her point standings with other riders in their own district and across the country. The top ten riders in each district will also receive a special top ten district jacket.



GOLD CUP SERIES
The Gold Cup Series involves a rider counting his/her best score from a Gold Cup Race event, according to the Gold Cup/State/Provincial Points Table, and his/her scores from Saturday & Sunday at the Gold Cup Cup Final. Several tracks in each state will hold a Gold Cup race, these races offer Triple district points. You can race the Gold Cup even if you do not plan on going to the Gold Cup Final.
In addition to awarding a Gold Cup jacket and #1 plate to the winner in each age & skill level, ABA will award Redline Cup #2 & #3 plates at the finals.
Finally, at the Finals, both Saturday and Sunday will also offer quadruple district points for riders.

RACE FOR LIFE also known as RFL

What is the Race For Life?
It all started in 1981 when an avid 12 year old BMX racer from Michigan discovered he had Leukemia. Todd Kingsbury was his name, and like many BMXers, he had dreams of someday becoming a top pro in the sport. Unfortunately, this dreaded disease would keep Todd from fulfilling his dream.
When Todd`s friends and the American Bicycle Association learned of his diagnosis, it was decided that an organized effort should be made to help in Todd`s "Race for Life." The first ABA "Race for Life" events were formed that year, with over 130 tracks participating and raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
® .
Ever since, the ABA has held a series of "Race for Life" events nationwide to help in the fight to find a cure for blood-related cancers. There are awards given to top fund raisers which include t-shirts, jackets and trips to the ABA Grandnationals of BMX.
Of course, the best reward of all is the good feeling of helping others with Leukemia.

Get Involved
Did you know you don't have to be an USA BMX  member to race at the RFL. 

Start Now
After you have received your collection envelope for the ABA BMX “Race For Life”, you need to start collecting donations from your friends, relatives, neighbors and businesses in your community. Instruct the donors to make checks payable to the Leukemia “Race For Life”. When you go back to the track, put all the checks in the envelope but don’t seal it because the track operator will have to verify what you have collected in order for you to be eligible to compete for the ABA BMX awards that will be given away. If you need more envelopes please visit the track.

STATE CHAMPIONSHIP RACE also known as SCR
STATE CHAMPIONSHIP FINAL also known as SCF

Anyone can race at an SCR or SCF and you do not have to qualify to race at an SCR/SCF and you do not have to be from Washington State to race at a Washington State SCR/SCF. If you are not from Washington State and you race at a Washington SCR/SCF, you are not eligible to compete for a Washington title or number plate, but you are still eligible to receive trophies and double or triple district points depending on the SCR/SCF. If you are from Washington State, to become eligible to obtain the State Championship title and/or a State number plate designation, a rider must meet the following requirements:
1. Race in the predetermined number of SCR's, which in Washington is 4 SCR Races.
2. A rider may race as many SCR events as they wish. Only that rider’s best finishes of the required number of races within that rider’s respective State will be counted going into the finals.
3. Race in the State Championship Final event of his/her respective State.
