Everyone from 5-years-of-age to adults participated in Star City BMX’s Halloween/ Corn Cup Final race Oct. 31 at 101 Charleston St. in Lincoln. The event also included a “trunk or treat” and a pumpkin roll relay in honor of the holiday.

Star City BMX is a local nonprofit organization that focuses on the sport of bicycle motocross racing. This race was a single point race, where the race counted as two local races. There were Corn Cup awards, for those who had all of the Corn Cup qualifiers, which were a series of races from Aug. 1 to Oct. 17. Nonqualifiers received Halloween awards.

Riders and their families participated in a trunk or treat before the event. Riders dressed up in costumes and were allowed to race in them as long as they did not impede another rider.

We can’t can’t get him any more than that,” Danny Aveni, father of John-Martin Aveni, said. “The thing is you’re gonna crash, you know, we can’t prevent him from crashing. The key thing is knowing your limits.” It is important that racers have all of their protection including helmets, body pads and appropriate clothing. Photo by: Savannah Hamm/ NNS
