Chula Vista, CA – Participants from Dale Holmes Racing’s, “Ride to End Obesity Program”, an interactive program offered as part of the ASES after school programming at Poway Unified School District, where middle school-aged children learn about proper nutrition, the importance of exercise, bike and street safety and the sport of BMX racing with an opportunity to ride bicycles through staged obstacles onsite at schools, will attend the last round of the UCI BMX World Cup Series to witness first-hand the competitive side of the sport.
“I really had fun learning about being healthy and riding the bmx bikes when you visited our school last spring. I am excited about seeing professional bikers this weekend at the Olympic Training Site”, said Daniel, a student participant of Ride to End Obesity.
Students will spend the afternoon at the Olympic Training Facility in Chula Vista meeting with professionals of the USA BMX organization, interacting with BMX World Champions, Olympians and other professional riders while watching the final round of the UCI BMX World Cup Series where the title is up for grabs.
