With all that is going on now, I question if we will actually loose new riders, in other words depending on how long this situation lasts, will the current new crop loose interest. With the current forecast at 18 moths before this ends, I feel that we may have to start a massive recruitment drive. Have to go back to work will return later

The key to not losing the new riders is to keep in contact with them. Historically, BMX Racing is terrible at follow-up, because we're so used to just replacing last year's load with the new birth year kids coming up. That has been the SOP for years. Which is a shit way to do it but that's where we're at.

In our local League program, we are going to start a weekly email to keep BMX in their heads.

As of now, we are still running League in Indiana, with about 40 kids...started last weekend.

Hope everyone stays healthy!

Best,

Mike

The only good thing is that any new riders can't leave and go play any other sports right now. With everything on hold, there is nowhere for them to go.
