Medicine Hat BMX Club offers fun for the entire family!


With more than 30 years and pedalling, Medicine Hat BMX has been more than just a sports club; they have been a family. Built on a strong foundation of guidance, leadership and responsibility. From humble beginnings in the late 1970's the club was founded by dedicated volunteers, hard work and community; values still upheld today. The club was officially established as a society in June of 1982, marking a pivotal point for the success of the clubs founders: Gladys Mace, Garth Mace, Mark Watts and Diana Lodon.

The clubs membership stayed small in the early years, only seeing on average five riders each event night. The same values of dedication and perseverance proved fruitful for the club when they were granted a piece of city property to develop a track. Medicine Hat's premier location at the time, nestled on the outskirts of Kin Coulee park. Adjacent to major routes and events held at the park, the club and its activities gained much attention. Growing larger, gaining new memberships and community supporters the club went on to successfully host the Canadian National Race and the Alberta Provincial Race on the same weekend in 1997. Forward into present day, Medicine Hat BMX pridefully boasts a large secured and professionally maintained track and facility on the northern edge of the city.

The club proudly accepts riders at a very young age, valuing the experience and opportunity that BMX provides for children at all stages and into adulthood. As a club, there is no age limit on fun and achievement. An open door welcomes anyone who shares the passion and desire to experience the thrills of the sport. The club was founded on and continues to uphold the belief of teamwork and commitment to each other through sport and all aspects of life. BMX stands for Bicycle Motocross, a truly adrenaline pumping experience.

Structured lessons and open track sessions are regular perks enjoyed by members, giving them the opportunity to develop their skills. As riders progress, different levels of competition are available to them to train and compete against their peers. As a club they support their members with equipment, facility, education and instruction to grow and challenge their skills. More than just the fire of competition and adrenaline of the race; Medicine Hat BMX truly embodies what it means to live and breathe BMX; with no holds barred at living life to the fullest.

Meet Our Team! These people help make things flor smoothly!


President - "Amber Harnett"

This is my first year as President with Medicine Hat BMX and this position definitely keeps me busy, as our club continues to grow exponentially each year! I have been a member of the club for the past five seasons, starting with the beginning of my older sons' love of cycling. I now have two sons racing (ages 5 and 8) and have been racing locally and Provincially myself for the past four years. I am always willing to help new members find bikes or gear, promoting our club at community events and you can most likely find me racing weekly with ladies half my age!

Vice President - "Nicole Reuer"

Nikki has been a valued asset to our local BMX Club. She has been the Vice President of MHBMX for the past 7 years and has been very instrumental in the many positive changes in making our club one of the best in the Province. If VP wasn't enough, she became our race night announcer for 3 years-it was her way to cheer on her husband and son! Keep up the great work you do Nikki!

Secretary - "Fran Duhaime"

This is my 25th season with MHBMX. I started off volunteering for bingos with my brother, the following year I was bingo chairperson and within a few years from that I was club secretary. I am currently track operator and club secretary for Medicine Hat as well as BEM operator and treasurer for Alberta BMX. I am also BEM and moto building instructor for Alberta BMX. It has been my pleasure serving in these capacities for all these years and I look forward to doing so in the future.

Treasurer - "Fran Jassman"

My sister was part of BMX for 5 years before I joined, which she needed me because she was going to Lethbridge for University. I started as a Bingo volunteer. From there I became and still am Bingo Chairperson, secretary for Alberta BMX, treasurer for Medicine Hat BMX. I served several years on the local Bingo board as director and treasurer. I received my Provincial A level commissaire 4 years ago, Provincial B forever and turned down National level A because didn't want to leave the province. There isn't a thing I would not help or volunteer for. Thank you to my dear sister for introducing me to the sport of BMX!!!!

I do it for the kids! The sport of BMX is something every kid should experience. I've been with our local club for the past eight years and have witnessed many achievements both locally and Provincially.

Being proud of what you do and accomplishing many tasks is what makes our club so great. Once again, I look forward to another successful year fulfilling my advertising and marketing duties for Medicine Hat BMX.
