The seventh (and final) stop on the BMX Canada National Series brought us to the sunny Okanagan city of Vernon, British Columbia.
Since its inception 38 years ago, Vernon BMX has raised an incredible amount of BMX talent. It’s always a pleasure to return to this gem of a track, which is nestled in Ranger Park - smack dab in the center of a neighborhood community. Shylo Orchard and the fantastic crew at Vernon BMX run a fantastic local program here, with surrounding tracks at Kelowa, Kamloops and Penticton. The BMX scene in the Okanagan is thriving with thousands of kilograms of excitement (that’d be tons, to you Americans).
Vernon’s track obstacles have been unchanged since our last visit here, however, the addition of a new ProStart safety barrel gate was a nice new addition. Fast, quiet - and most of all, safe, these barrel gates are well worth the investment in peace of mind for all the riders and their parents.
