BMX: thousands turn up at Westside BMX Club for WA State Super Series final round

WESTSIDE BMX Club in Balcatta hosted the 10th and final round of the BMX WA State Super Series round on Sunday.

Nearly 500 riders raced in the event; 2000 spectators filled the stands.

Club President Stuart Pepper said the event was the perfect opportunity to highlight the 40 year old club’s $1.3 million revamp from the City of Stirling.

“We are so happy to have such great support from the City of Stirling, and its councillors, in completing this project,” he said.

“We already had one of the best race tracks in Australia, and with the completion of the infrastructure around it now makes a world class race track.”

Mr Pepper said BMX was a rapidly growing sport with male and female members from only two years old through to 69 years old.

“It is truly a sport which transcends the barriers of age and gender,” he said.

“WA has produced some of Australia’s best racers, of all ages, and to have them racing at the Balcatta track was certainly a sight to see.”

The next race event is the BMX WA State Championships, on October 6 and 7 at Southside BMX track in Bullcreek.

WA will host next years’ National Championships in Bunbury.
