I rode by the GRBMX track yesterday to check out the track and also look around where the new Mtn Bike Park and pump track are to be constructed. The track is located just SE of US-131 and Burton in some old little league field they have leased from the city.
While there, I ran into Paul Maycroft, one of the guys responsible for building and running the track. It turns out that this weekend BMX racers from all over Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois will be converging on Grand Rapids for a NBL (National Bike League) regional event.
Sounds pretty awesome, and I would recommend heading over there sometime this weekend and checking out the track if you haven’t been. There should be lots of racing to watch.
The schedule of events can be found on the NBL website.
