SERIES POINTS & GENERAL RULES:

Saskatchewan Cup BMX Series & Grands Points

The Saskatchewan Cup BMX Series is a total points series meant to create another opportunity for provincial wide participation in a series format. They are a completely separate event from Saskatchewan BMX Provincial Championships.

  • Your points earned from Saskatchewan Cup #1, #2, #3, and #4 will be tallied, then added to points achieved at the Sask Cup BMX Grands to determine your overall placing in the series.  
  • You must attend at least 50% of the series races prior to being eligible to attend Grands.
  • You also must attend the Grands to achieve a final placing for the Saskatchewan Cup Series.  
  • The Grands format uses race classes and age just like our District series, although you may race with others as needed to make motos of 3 or more riders.
  • Position (P) plates will be awarded at the end of the Grands days racing.

Saskatchewan Cup BMX Provincial Championships Points

The Saskatchewan Cup Provincial Championship is the highest level of provincial racing in SK during the BMX season.

  • Provincial Championships is a single day event, with your finishing position determining your placing within your age group.  
  • All ability levels in an age group will compete in the same group (riders are not grouped by rider class, just by age).
  • Your championship placing earned will help determine your National standing.
  • “SK” plates will be awarded to the top 8 positions of each age group at the end of the Championship racing day.
  • You do not need to qualify to participate in the Saskatchewan Provincial Championship event

The Saskatchewan Provincial Championship event will be held at Diamond BMX on Sunday, August 22nd, 2021
