Rogue Valley BMX Holds Weekend Clinic With Professional Racers
The Bear Creek BMX Track in Medford is hosting a clinic for BMX racers of all ages and abilities. The two-day event is held on Friday and Sunday, with a third clinic being held in Grants Pass on Monday.
Rachel Mydock is a professional BMX Racer and is coached by five-time National #1 racer Kim Hayashi, who is now retired.
“We mainly came here just to do some training with our teammates,” said Hayashi. “It kind of grew into an interest in teaching out here.”
Rogue Valley BMX has a community of over 1,000 people on Facebook, but some rescheduled races did take some racers out of the valley this weekend. Hayashi and Mydock both commented on the sense of community they see in the BMX community at races across the country.
“It’s $35 each day or if you choose to do both it is $60,” said Mydock. “That way we save you a little bit of money. There is also a Monday night clinic that a track in Grants Pass is putting on. That one is $20, and I think it is [for] two hours. We are just doing gates and first straights there, but the one here is Friday and Sunday. Sunday is 9 am to noon so if you miss [Friday] you can make that one.”
