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!

Check out a quick little flow session on the backyard mini-ramp with Brandon Wolferman and myself. The basic idea here is to go out and do anything.  Simply put, if your not doing something every single day you have to change your radio station to on that does.

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!
