Albany -- Hundreds of Bicycle Moto-Cross riders-- and their families-- will descend on the Parks at Chehaw this weekend. Over 600 riders from as far away as New York will be in Albany to compete for potential slots on the USA Olympic BMX racing team for the 2008 Olympics.
This race will also be responsible for filling local hotels and restaurants.
Local BMX dad Danny Acord says, "The event is sanctioned by the National Bicycle League, and local chapter members hope the NBL will make Albany a regular stop on their schedule."
A dedicated group of southwest Georgia families travel as far away as Connecticut to compete in the NBL's national series. "Some of these riders include Cole Acord, Cameron Metts, Dylan Hughes, Natalie Lawrence, and T. J. Gravett," Acord said.
These riders compete to qualify for a chance to win the national championship which is held in Louisville, Kentucky on Labor Day weekend each year.
"Albany's Chehaw BMX took six riders to this event. Cole Acord won the 8-year-old novice competing against 39 riders from all over the nation," Acord said.
The event being held in Chehaw this weekend is one of the qualifiers for the 2007 national series. Riders can also race a state series which includes tracks in McDonough, Peachtree City, and Augusta.
Saturday afternoon will include the Southeastern Regional Championship, which includes top riders from all over Southeastern United States.
