Twenty-eight of the club’s top riders will compete in the event, which is considered to be the pinnacle of BMX in WA and attracts hundreds of riders and spectators each year.

Club president Kevin Morrow said to have such a large field of riders in the state championships was an incredible achievement.

‘All of the riders have been training and racing hard each week to be as fit and race-ready as possible before the day,’ he said.

‘BMX is a very family-friendly and inclusive sport and we encourage riders of all abilities to give it a try so next year we can have even more Byford BMX members compete.’

The club currently has five BMX WA state plate holders ” Bailey Jokic, Michael Scantlebury, Kara Harrison, Lillyrose Harrison and Brett Haysom.

Next year a new track will be constructed at the Byford BMX Club. But members of the club need to come up with $300,000 to move their track due to the future development of Briggs Park.

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale plan to extend Briggs Park in Byford, where the BMX track is located, to cater for more sporting facilities as the Shire continues to grow.
