    Corben Sharrah, who competed in the 2016 Olympic Games and is training for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, will sign autographs.

    The evening will feature free races open to all ages. Everyone who races receives an Olympic Day certificate. Concessions will be open, and free snow cones will be offered.

    Riders should bring their own bikes and helmets to try out the track. 

    BMX became an Olympic sport for men and women in 2008. The 2016 games were the first time Sharrah qualified outright for the BMX Olympic team. Four years previously, he qualified as an alternate.
