Jason Carnes’ Berm Academy is proud to deliver the ultimate BMX road trip experience for every rider, 14 and over, from novice to pro! Experiencing the coast-to-coast BMX scene in the U.S. is an exciting vision that many riders around the world share. Whether we’re hitting a USA BMX race or practice night at one of their 350+ tracks, shredding the trails, bike park, or a secret backyard track, exploring a new city by bike, lounging at the beach, cannonballing at a local swim hole, whitewater rafting, or stopping in to check out one of the hundreds of National and State Parks, you are guaranteed to have a good time and create friendships and memories that will last a lifetime…and you’ll do it all in one of the sickest rigs the sport has ever seen.
The Berm Academy offers seven day, fourteen day, and one month (or longer) options with transportation, accommodation, most meals, and an opportunity to hit some of the country’s best tracks, trails, industry hot spots, and experience lots of road-life good times. And when it’s time to roll into a USA BMX National, The Berm Academy gives you the “Pro” treatment with a massive pit set-up that is unrivaled by all other teams, and exclusive to tour participants (and maybe a few visiting Pros).
If you want to experience tour life and do it like a pro, get on board with Jason Carnes’ Berm Academy and let’s hit the road!
My first trip to the BMX track was back in 1986 after a neighbor invited me along to Cowtown BMX (Ft Worth, TX), and I’ll never forget the nervousness and excitement that I felt that day!
My first race came a few weeks later, and after making an unbelievable pass (in my mind) to take the win in 14 Novice, I knew I had found the sport that would define my life. After being involved with BMX for over thirty years and having competed on every level, the one thing that has never grown old is the excitement of hitting the road with friends for unknown adventures.
I have created the Berm Academy to share my passion for life on the road and to give riders a BMX tour experience that they could never have dreamed possible…until now. I invite you to jump on board with The Berm Academy, live and tour like a pro, and let the good times roll!
