There is a local BMX track in a suburb of the town I live in. I had called there before asking about scheduling and rules and whatnot. I found out, that (at least on that track), they had a special category for bikes (such as full-size MTBs) with wheels bigger than 20".
Is this just this track doing it, or is there officially another class of racing for bikes with big wheels?

There are a large number of tracks that have a Clydesdale class, which typically runs on 24" or 26" wheeled bikes. Most pump tracks aren't designed wit a 26" wheel in mind. It still is a lot of fun.

They are probably doing 4X or four-cross racing. I believe they run 4 bikes per stage.
