Yes indeed folks, it’s back to that time of the year when you can smell the gun smoke in the air. Time to put on those big boy pants and get to The Battle for Midwest BMX for all the fame and glory! (Actually a trophy and a bunch of great memories) The Battle Series started five years ago, the idea and concept was to provide something fun for us BMX minded people to do over the winter months. We support local skateparks around the midwest area and we provide a positive and overall great environment for the entire family to come out and enjoy. The battle series is designed 100% around having fun and enjoying the sport that brings all of us so much joy.
The year 2018 will bring us even more fun and good times as we push each other to the next level by competing against one another in the 5th annual Battle for Midwest BMX! I am stoked beyond belief that you all made this possible for the past 4 years and am ready to continue this contest well into the future. I thank each and every one of you who comes out to spend a day with some rowdy ol BMX’ers!
Happy New Year and I cannot wait to see everyone in Fort Wayne, Indiana this Saturday as we kick off 2018 in true BMX style!
Overall Winners from Beginner, Intermediate, & Expert win a free week of camp at Ohio Dreams!

We had to opportunity to present the history behind the Fort Wayne Indoor to a local group of entrepreneurs this past week at Sweetwater Sound for 1 Million Cups. We sent out Rich Hoppe with a Power Point, and Brian Leonard with a camera. 1 Million Cups is designed to get local business people and entrepreneurs together to discuss things, ideas, concepts, opportunities, with local business owners with businesses under 4 years of age. When asked to present, we took it on and decided to record it so that you, the Fort Wayne Indoor Family can see it 1st hand. We have some pretty amazing ideas that start out near the 15 minute mark when we talk about Roots & Growth. We also enlighten some folks on the rules and laws governing Lawtons Skatepark that do not sit well on ones mind when heard like we say it. Give this a real listen and give us some feedback on our Facebook page on what you would like to see in Fort Wayne in the next 3-5 Years!
Come on out this Friday Night and Ride the night away instead of playing video games with your little brother. We will have some pizza and fun times going down inside the Indoor!
Saturday Night we open up the doors for an ALL NIGHT SKATE from 10AM-6PM for $20! Pizza and good times will be had this Saturday Night at your Local Indoor Skatepark!
We at the Fort Wayne Indoor always want to provide you with the best possible experience you can have while visiting the park. We have noticed an influx of younger kids on Scooters and have decided to work with Harrison Burns to bring you a SCOOTER ONLY Session inside the Indoor Skatepark. We have found that when people who ride the same type of device ride together, they typically progress and learn much quicker and it tends to create life long friendships.
We appreciate the support from our local community and we hope this will ease up some the excessive amount of scooters during the normal mixed sessions. We look forward to seeing all the bright new faces inside the regions ONLY Indoor Skatepark!

We could not be more excited to have the world’s best female BMX Rider Hannah Roberts! Hannah just won back to back world titles the past two weekends all the way over the big pond in Chengdu, China. Hannah is 16 years old and from Buchanan, Michigan. She is no stranger to Fort Wayne as she has been down here many times over her amazing BMX life. Hannah took the title two weeks ago in the world-wide 4 stop Fise series for the 2nd year in a row. Hannah dominated the women’s class all year-long and was invited to the 1st ever Olympic Sanctioned Worlds the next weekend, and pushed on for a 2nd win in just 2 weeks.
Check out her winning runs from last weekend in the video above. Hannah gets most of her practice time in at the Kitchen BMX & Skatepark, located in South Bend, Indiana.
