Dear friends in BMX,
40 years ago, the sport of BMX (Bicycle Moto-Cross) was introduced in The Netherlands and Europe as an official registered sport. Around 3 years later BMX turned into an international world wide sport through the I.BMX.F. And it was after the merge with the UCI that BMX became an Olympic sport in 2008.
40 years of development of riders, events, officials have past and in my opinion we can all look back with pride of what has been achieved.
So let's celebrate the 40th anniversary of BMX 1978 - 2018 in The Netherlands and Europe.
Yours sincerely, Gerrit Does
