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

races offer Triple district points. You can race the Gold Cup even
if you do not plan on going to the Gold Cup Final.

plate to the winner in each age & skill level, ABA will award
Redline Cup #2 & #3 plates at the finals.

RACE FOR LIFE also known as
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 &
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.
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. Check out our schedule for the
upcoming RACE FOR LIFE at RIVER VALLEY BMX!
