My 5 year old son just got into BMX and he wants me to ride with him on the track. I grew up racing motocross and went all the way up to intermediate and then took a long break. Now im back into the mx and I want to start bmx track riding with my son. I am 40 years old, 160 pounds, 6 ft. Im riding my motocross bike 2 times a week and can still ride and clear all the jumps smile my question is for bmx track riding and racing, I have no clue what to get between the redline pro 24 or the redline pro 20. And what class would i start in? Any suggestions or help is appreciated.

20" has 36-40 Novice/Intermediate/Expert, but there's only one distinction with cruisers. Also, I don't know how long you've been out, but there's just USABMX now.

24" is cool to me man. Pretty fun to ride. Just make sure to get a light weight 24 if u do. Ghp and GT have some nice bikes try looking them up on danscomp

All Ghp bikes are on sale on danscomp and I think they do free shipping or have other discount codes avail. Check out ghp the 24s they have are bad ass. If I had the money and a track to ride at id Buy a Ghp. $400 is a steal for some of those bikes and they are geared to run fast on trails and tracks and stuff.
