BMX Cycling Organisations
Thanks to the low cost and the enormous freedom of this newly invented sport, it soon became a hit among youngsters in California and, later, all over America.
By the mid-1970s, BMX Cycling was hugely popular, and in 1974, the National Bicycle League was founded as a sanctioning organisation.
As the sport gained popularity, the American Bicycle Association was established in 1977, and the International BMX Federation was founded in 1981.
BMX Cycling is spread around the world. It became clear that BMX was more closely related to Cycling than motorcycle, and it was integrated into the International Cycling Union (UCI) in 1993.
