Can someone give me the low down on any country, Euro champs, getting around to the different countries to race? Just a really good discussion on what it's like on the other side of the pond!

I think many of the top riders are based down in the South of France possibly at Frejus.

In my experience driving/travelling through western and central European countries is very easy, although I've never done it for BMX. Getting out of and back into the UK (where I live) is the slow bit!

I think countries like France, UK, Germany and partly Italy have good BMX community and they are trying to develop a great BMX culture.. But truly speaking, there's never be in Europe like it is in America or in Australia...

You left out the Netherlands. Isn't that the European country that is most active? I have no idea what the BMX activity is in Europe, but I am skeptical about your statement that the sport will not rival the US or Australia. It seems to me that more of the good riders are increasingly coming from outside of the US.

Latvia

  • Riga - big and very challanging track Pro-sec for top riders. Spectacular jumps, unusual obstacles. Asphalted turns.
  • Rubene - Supercross track - Replica of Papendal. Turns are not yet asphalted.
  • Ventspils - also big track with 2 prosecs, 11m bermjump. Asphalted turns.
  • Valmiera - Universal track with SX ramp/first straight, 1 prosec. Asphalted turns.
  • Jelgava - also great track with interesting 2 prosecs. Asphalted turns.
  • Madona - located in sport complex inside wood very fast track. Asphalted turns.
  • Saldus - single course track, but technical. Steep starthill. Paved turns.
  • Mārupe - just finished development class track. One prosec.
  • Smiltene - Development class track with 2 90turns. Fast.


Easiest way to come to Latvia - by plane. International airport RIX. Closest track to RIX is Marupe - 10min.

Close to Latvia are two tracks - one in Lithaunia, Saulai, other in Estonia, Tartu. Saulai is international class track with one prosec. Tartu - development class.
