Sorry it has taken so long to get this information up on the site.

Toronto BMX and Mike Heaton will not be looking after the Toronto BMX Jam 2015.

The company that operates the Toronto International Bicycle Show wanted major changes to the way the Jam operated that included eliminating the Amateur section.

With all of the work involved in getting my new school up and running, I decided that it was time to let someone else look after the Jam. Everything always needs a fresh look.

They plan on unveiling the new plans by mid December.

A big “THANK YOU” to all of you who have supported our event over the past 7 years: the riders, judges, announcers, sponsors, volunteers, community organizations, the City of Toronto and Al Crawford for promoting the sport through the addition of BMX parks and programmes in communities, Toronto Police Service and Scott Mills for community connections, publicity and live feeds. It has all made for memorable growth.

I continue to be involved with BMX at my new school property up near Thunder Bay (www.queticocollegeschool.ca).

Dennis Enarson and the Markit Team were here for a week in August this past summer to try out the new park. It was such a success that we will be having another Markit “Week” next summer, 2 weeks in August.

Please come!

All the best with your riding and hope to meet up with you again.
