Some of the best bikers in the country are coming to Abbotsford on Saturday.

Abbotsford BMX is hosting the first race in both the BC Premier Series and the Canada Cup on May 14 and 15 at their track at 32470 Haida Drive.

Club representatives are expecting hundreds of riders from the Lower Mainland and some from out of province.

Racing will start at 11 a.m. on both days, starting with the half-trackers, then moving up to the full-trackers and eventually the elites. Over $13,000 will be up for grabs at the event.

Abbotsford BMX will also be hosting Next Gen training throughout the summer for those riders aiming for the national team and the World Cup.

The next big event on the calendar for the club is the BC BMX provincial championships on July 16.
