BMX

The origins of BMX (Bicycle Motocross) can be traced to the early 1970s in southern California when kids adapted their road bikes for the thrill of the dirt track. Manufacturers took advantage of this new craze and began selling specially-made bikes. By the early 1980s BMX had become popular not just in the US but around the world. The first BMX World Championship was held in 1982. By 2008, BMX had become an olympic full-medal discipline at the Beijing Olympics.
