The th year in The Battle for Midwest BMX officially kicked off in Fort Wayne, Indiana at The Fort Wayne Indoor BMX & Skatepark sponsored by Wonder Wheels BMX &  Summit City Bicycles.  The weekend started off on Friday night with a practice session to help get some of the new folks used to the unique layout inside the Fort Wayne Indoor.

The day began  with a 2.5 hour practice session, Alec Rutherford was attempting to win practice but we never actually judged practice!  After practice ended we  moved straight into the contest.  Beginners were up 1st and the butterflies were tearing up everyone’s stomach for sure.  Once we got the butterflies out, Ethan Webb ended up taking the victory with various 1 footed moves and a few Steve Questa inspired wall rides was enough to take the top spot. Congrats to all the beginners who stepped up and participated in the Battle Contest!

The Battle for Midwest BMX Starts 5th Year of Midwest Carnage!

Yes indeed folks, it’s back to that time of the year when you can smell the gun smoke in the air.  Time to put on those big boy pants and get to The Battle for Midwest BMX for all the fame and glory! (Actually a trophy and a bunch of great memories)  The Battle Series started five years ago, the idea and concept was to provide something fun for us BMX minded people to do over the winter months.  We support local skateparks around the midwest area and we provide a positive and overall great environment for the entire family to come out and enjoy.  The battle series is designed 100% around having fun and enjoying the sport that brings all of us so much joy.

The year 2018 will bring us even more fun and good times as we push each other to the next level by competing against one another in the 5th annual Battle for Midwest BMX!  I am stoked beyond belief that you all made this possible for the past 4 years and am ready to continue this contest well into the future.  I thank each and every one of you who comes out to spend a day with some rowdy ol BMX’ers!

Happy New Year and I cannot wait to see everyone in Fort Wayne, Indiana this Saturday as we kick off 2018 in true BMX style!
