BMX racing—riding bicycles off-road on a groomed dirt track—has been around since the 1970s, but enjoyed a surge of popularity in recent decades, making its way into the 2008 summer Olympics. The Idaho State BMX Championship promises an action-packed weekend, when expert and novice riders hit the tracks at Eagle Park BMX for an event known to draw a crowd 1,000 strong. Catch a double-points state pre-race on Sept. 11, a triple-points state final race and raffle on Sept. 2 and a double-points Bob Warnicke race on Sept. 3.

If you'd like to do more than spectate, it isn't too late: Riders who want to test their mettle racing others on jumps and runs can register online until 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 31.
