Shoreham BMX

SHOREHAM, NY – On Saturday, October 5th, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined residents and visitors at the USA BMX Northeast Gold Cup Regional Finals held at the Shoreham BMX park. The event saw over 6,000 participants and spectators of all ages and skill levels, representing 17 states over the duration of the three-day event.

“It was great to see the riders so passionate about their sport and enjoying the outdoors on such a beautiful day,” said Legislator Anker. “I would like to thank Shoreham BMX for hosting the regional championship.”

BMX is an abbreviation for bicycle motocross, and is a cycle sport performed on special bikes made for racing and stunts. The Shoreham BMX facility is run by the not-for-profit Shoreham BMX Parents Association, a completely volunteer-run group. It was established in 1982 and operates within the sanction of the USA BMX organization. The Northeast Gold Cup Regional Finals was part of a nationwide BMX championship. Riders who participated in the event were previously qualified by two other Gold Cup races in the northeast.

“Shoreham BMX was extremely excited to host this Northeast Championship Race,” said track operator Richard Soper. “It as a huge success – we entertained BMX racers from 17 different states and introduced them to the racetrack we call home!”
