Since I came last year am I already confirmed for this year?

No, you are not confirmed for this year. You must receive an email invite, login to the website and complete the registration process including you, your spouse/girlfriend and kids. If you choose to blow off the registration process and just walk up with 3 of your buddies who are all under the 38 year old cut off rule and beg to get in, I’ll have Donovan Ritter throw you all the way out of Kern County and bend your bikes into balloon art just like a birthday clown.

Arrival and Check-in Instructions

Everyone must check-in at the Lodge, not the camp office, and will be required to fill out a waiver and will receive a wrist band which you will need all weekend to have access to camp. Check in times are 2pm-6pm on Friday and 9am-1pm on Saturday.

$70 for invited OS BMX’er, $45 for spouse/girlfriend/kids 18 and over. $25 kids 17-6. 5 and under free. Payable upon registration by Paypal via credit/debit card only, no refunds for either event registration or housing once paid.

This is a private event and is not open to the public, we apologize in advance for any problems or misunderstandings. You must be on the invite list to attend, no unregistered guests please.

Please understand we have limited space and can't accommodate everyone. Walk ups or party crashers will be turned away and then Dennis McCoy will swap rock you so hard it will crack your tuff wheels.

Are there rooms available on Thursday if we want to come up early or stay extra days?

No, please see the event schedule. But an exception is possible if you're willing to agree on two conditions.

1) Cold turkey attempt on the 70’ jump on the Mega. Must be on a 20”, non-suspended BMX.

2) Pay $11,000 per person/per night.

Will there be any meal options again this year?

No, however there are options in Stallion Springs at the Horse Thief Golf Course and P-Dubs down the street from Woodward West. Several food options in Tehachapi.

If you go to Tehachapi, Steve will get you a Mat Hoffman autograph if you bring him back a Venti Iced Coffee with soy from the Tehatch Starbucks!

Does my girlfriend pay even though she doesn’t ride?

Yes, girlfriends and spouses pay $45 even if they have never touched a BMX. I encourage OSBMXR attendees to bring their girlfriends and spouses for a couple reasons:

1) This is a family event for the love of Pete (Augustin)!

2) No one likes a dudefest!

However, they also take a spot away from an OS BMX’er since the event is limited to 300 attendees and there is always a waiting list. This is why they pay too. Hopefully they will have fun and appreciate their man’s passion and desire for being included in the elite fraternity of grey haired dudes who still ride little kids bikes.
