Sunday in Oshkosh, BMX fans got their fix at Winnebagoland BMX.

The track hosted the state finals race and a BMX series that featured numerous Olympians from all around the world.

Officials say it's a big deal to host this event because it gives kids a chance to see some of the best BMX races up close, and it's good for the area.

"It brings a lot of people to the area," Dave Anderson said. "It fills hotels, restaurants, the economic impact is pretty substantial."

Officials at the Winnebagoland BMX said they've built the track into the best that Wisconsin has to offer, helping them host races like these.
