According to American Family Physician (AFP), the journal of the American Academy of Family Physicians, 6.3 percent of BMX riders in competition sustain injuries. AFP also lists a number of risk factors for bicycle-related injuries (not just BMX). At the top of the list are: cyclist is male and cyclist is 9 to 14 years of age. If you have a son, grandson, or nephew this age, this probably isn’t surprising. Kids like to push their limits and try new things. The best thing you can do to support your child as a BMX rider is to make sure he or she has the proper kids BMX gear in order to ride safely and confidently.
