Local BMX group hosts ‘Race for Life’ event at N-P

       The 10th annual American Bicycle Association “Race for Life” will be Sunday Jan., 28 at 9 a.m. The race, hosted by the non-profit Pike Peak Indoor BMX at the Norris-Penrose Events Center, will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Anyone with a bicycle (any size: BMX, MTB, etc.) and helmet may participate (bicycle association membership is not required). The cost is $20, half of which directly benefits the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Spectators pay no admission fee. Other racing opportunities will be provided on the dirt track in the center’s Indoor Arena Friday, Jan. 26 at 6:30 p.m. and Saturday Jan. 27 at noon. There will also be events Feb. 3 and 9-11, and March 9-11. For each date-separated event, Pikes Peak BMX volunteers have stored dirt at Norris-Penrose hauled in to the arena, where they shape it into a track. For more information, call 235-3670 or go to www.pikespeakbmx.com.
