The area’s only BMX riders group plans to move to Columbia County when a new BMX track opens in the fall.
The new BMX track and skatepark at Blanchard Woods Park in Evans is slated to open in late September or early October.
Augusta BMX, which operates and maintains the BMX track on Division Street in Augusta, will make the new facility in Evans its new headquarters, according to Joey Tedesco, the track operator.
“We’re excited about it,” Tedesco said. “It’s going to be a better facility, more modern, more up to date. We’ll get more support from the county.”
