COLORADO SPRINGS — On Saturday, Pikes Peak BMX hosted their first competition since the COVID-19 shutdown.

Owned and operated by Bubba Hayes, the No. 2 BMX rider in the world (51 & older expert), Pikes Peak BMX welcomed riders 5 and older back to the track for the first time in months.

Even with mother nature providing some setbacks on Friday night, Hayes wanted to make sure the track was ready to go this weekend,

"We weren't able to come out here for about 3 months," explained Hayes. "There is a few of us that came out here riding so we didn't have to stay in the house all the time. But pretty much this is an outdoor sport. So we couldn't have any events or anything, but we were able to ride and keep our space."

As for what keeps the kids coming back?

"Going fast."
