Tracy Varndell

Clerk of Course -

Our History

Bobby Raimondo

Member at Large -

Bobby and his family are very active and his sons Aiden and Rowen can ride anything with 2 wheels. We rely on Bobby and his wife, Gabriel, to keep our starting hill organized, safe, and fair during practices and races. With the start of a BMX being the most important, we believe it is equally important to have a responsible person like Bobby. 

As a parent of a young athlete, you appreciate how dedicated volunteers combined with a fun environment can make all the difference. We provide a family friendly experience that your child will talk about for years.

 

Each of our volunteers has guided their own kids up through the ranks of youth sports with great success. In many cases, some are BMX Racers themselves - so they know first-hand how you feel. Your athlete will rave about their first time down the start hill when they ride at Charlotte BMX.
