BMX Race is a form of off-road bike racing on purpose built race tracks. The course generally contains jumps, rollers, as a lot of tight corners to navigate as riders sprint towards the finish line. BMX racing was introduced to the Olympics in Beijing, 2008. BMX Racing Bikes have one gear, meaning the rider needs to have a gear ratio that can get them to speed quickly, accelerate out of corners, up hills and over jumps. BMX Race Bikes have a larger front sprocket than other BMX Bikes, which enables the rider to pedal at higher speeds. Good brakes are also important to enable the rider to slow down rapidly to negotiate corners and other obstacles.
