Statewide BMX Competition April 11-12 At Okeeheelee

The Sunshine State BMX Association will host a Florida Cup Series Qualifier at Okeeheelee Park on April 11 to 12.

The event will feature two races (Saturday and Sunday) and will attract more than 600 male and female competitors from across the state in a variety of age divisions, ranging from youth to adult.

Participants will attempt to qualify for the Florida Cup Championship race held in May. Both pro and amateur riders are eligible to compete.

There is no venue better suited to host a Florida Cup Series event than the Okeeheelee BMX Track. It is one of the nation’s premier facilities and has a robust history of hosting prominent BMX competitions.

The Okeeheelee BMX Parent Council has devoted countless hours and dollars into facility enhancements of its BMX track. This dedication resulted in the development of a marquee sports venue for Palm Beach County. The Okeeheelee BMX Track was recently named not only the top track in Florida, but also the No. 1 track in the entire east region.

In addition to the electrifying action that takes place at BMX events, the SSA Florida Cup Series Qualifier will create a tourism impact for Palm Beach County. The invasion of BMX athletes with their families is expected to generate more than 500 room nights, and a surge in new revenues for the hospitality community.

Don’t miss the exciting action. Races begin at 9 a.m. and will last throughout the day on Saturday, April 11 and Sunday, April 12. For more information, visit
