FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - After a rain delay on August 12, the racers for Far North BMX held their state championships after a summer full of races. From novice to cruiser classes, over 100 racers took on the only certified BMX track in Alaska.

“I think it was very important because a lot of places are shut down right now and BMX is a great way to let out some energy and stuff and just forget about what’s going on in the world,” said Kristy Miller. “It’s been pretty cool, just like it becomes like a family once you’ve been here for a long time you just get used to all the people and stuff.”

“It’s pretty cool, I mean I like that it is the only track here and it’s also like, I don’t know just a fun thing to do during the summer.” said Ellie Buth.

“Being a part of this BMX community is pretty special. I feel definitely accepted in here.” said Elias Engman.
