Albany -- Bikers are taking over the Parks at Chehaw.

More than 700 B-M-X bikers are at the park this weekend for the National Bike League's regional and national competitions.

Bikers from 4 to 72 are squaring off in races. Organizers say the sport is growing in popularity.

"For almost 18 years, we have been trying to get our sport in the Olympics. Last April we were accepted in the 2008 Olympic Games as a full medal discipline, and that's very exciting for our sport" says Bob Tedeso of the Natl. Bike League

The competition will end Sunday at noon. The event is free to the public with park admission.
