Durango has been selected to host the 2022 BMX State Championships August 20 and 21. Durango BMX was the No. 1 track in Colorado for 2021, so it was picked to host the 2022 championship. There are 14 tracks in Colorado and because Durango had the largest number of racers in 2021, it was picked to host.
“We have a strong BMX community in Durango and we are all excited to be given the honor of hosting the State Championship,” said Jordan Rupe, Recreation Supervisor.
The Championship is expected to draw approximately 400 racers and more than 1,000 people to Durango for the weekend. Saturday, Aug. 20 is the state pre-race. Race registration is from 1 to 3 p.m. with the race following registration. Sunday, Aug. 21, will be the state championship with race registration between 8:30 and 10 a.m. with racing to follow.
