Elkhorn BMX is a USABMX sanctioned bicycle motocross track in Rio Linda, California. Elkhorn BMX is in the CA11 USABMX district in Northern California, just outside of Sacramento. We are a non-profit BMX racing track devoted entirely to the sport of Bicycle Motocross and dedicated to the youth of America. Our track is on public grounds in the Rio Linda Elverta Recreation and Park District.
Elkhorn BMX holds practice ONLY on Mondays and Thursdays from 6pm - 8pm for $5 per rider.
Riders can also practice on race days before motos are posted for $5 per rider. These practice sessions start at 6pm and run until motos are posted, usually 7:45. If you hangout until after the mains are run, you can even sneak in another 30 minutes or so.
Elkhorn BMX races on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Sign-ups are 6-7:30pm, races start ASAP, and race fees are $10.
Elkhorn BMX is a VOLUNTEER run organization that needs everyone’s help. The track is always looking for volunteers. Volunteers are the strength and heart of Elkhorn BMX. There is always something that needs done, and the more help... the better! On race day's there is a sign up board located at Registration, for various positions we need to execute the event. The staff is available to answer questions on what is entailed, within the different race day positions. Work Days are scheduled at various times throughout the year. Work days are advertised on the Elkhorn BMX track Facebook page.
BMX racing is a sport of youthful achievement and the American family. While the young boy or girl BMX racer develops skills at an individual pace, they are learning about winning, losing and trying again. The racer's family learns that time spent together is support of the racer and the individual achievements is quality time.
A bicycle - any BMX type and size will do, but it is recommended that you start with one that has no more than a 20" wheel diameter - as that is the allowable limit in the Novice (beginner) class.
