Amatuer Contest! Contests Glenn Salyers

4 Seasons Skatepark Milwaukee Cancelled

The entire world has been flipped upside down since the last contest at The Kitchen in South, Bend Indiana. We were all stoked to visit 4-Seasons Skatepark in Milwaukee, WI this coming weekend as it is one of the raddest skateparks in the midwest and has remained radical through-out the test of time. (Props to the Crew at 4 Seasons)

We are still waiting the clock out to see if you the world is going to allow us to get the final contest done over at Chenga in Cleveland, Ohio.

Please keep your family and friends safe as we druge through this monumental time in all of our lives. And at this point we can still go outside and RIDE some bikes when the weather permits, stay radical and we hope to see you all in the very near future!

Stay Safe Friends -Rich Hoppe & the entire BFMWBMX crew.

The Battle for Midwest BMX | 2019

Yes indeed BMX fans, it is that time of the year when we start to load up the cannons for the 6th annual Battle for Midwest BMX! This year we are stoked to welcome the Hoffman Sports Association (HSA) as our sanctioning body, and also a brand new sponsor Hoffman Bikes.  We are stoked this year to get the winter park season blasting off!  Bill Nitschke from Wonder Wheels BMX will be helping out and the mic and other administrative orders once again this year also. 

Take a peek at the newly formed guidelines for the series points, and be ready to battle it out for the series winner in each class (excluding open) receives a free week of camp at Ohio Dreams Action Sports Camp.

The Open Class: A Shotgun format, 3 runs overall with the lowest 1/3 removed after each round.  Prize or Cash to be given out to each round winner.  This will encourage all who are just out for the fun and support of this series, and those in support of pure fun and freestyle BMX.

Example: Round 1 – Rad | Round 2 –  Radder |Round 3 – Raddest   

We are looking forward to seeing all of your friendly faces this year.  Follow BFMWBMX on Instagram for more media!

The Battle for Midwest BMX Finals | Butler, OH – Ohio Dreams

Open Class Mayhem: Video by Brant Moore BMX

The 2018 Battle for Midwest BMX Contest Series is officially in the books.  Once again, thank you to everyone who helped out judging, riding, spectating, driving, running to the coffee shop or simply cheering on the riders!

The Battle Series is all about having some fun while getting to ride some of the Midwest’s best indoor skateparks.  The series is set up to help support indoor parks, and to give folks something to look forward to though-out the sometimes long and nasty winters.  This marks the 5th year in a row for the series and we have remained cool, calm, and most of all we have all had a bunch of fun.  I genuinely appreciate all the newfound friendships and all of the stories and experiences I personally have taken part in over the past 60 months and I thank all of you for sharing them with me.

This is the 3rd year where the Finals took place directly in the middle of nowhere Ohio. (Butler,OH) at the magnificent hidden gem known as Ohio Dreams Action Sports Camp.   We once again had over 30 BMX riders from over 5 states showing up to shred the typically closed to the public indoor playground designed by one Nate Wessel at Ohio Dreams!

I will be working on next seasons schedule, along with possibly some bigger sponsors for next year with possibly some BIGGER prizes!

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!
