Club has a dozen reasons to be proud

Held at Sleeman Sports Complex in Brisbane, from April 28 to May 3, the event will attract 3000 entrants and more than 10,000 spectators.

This year’s competition will see 69 classes of racing, with participants ranging in age from two to 65 years.

It will also include the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) BMX Oceania Championships, which take place on Thursday, April 30.

Byford BMX Club president Kevin Marrow said to have 12 members at Australia’s premier BMX event showed the strength of the club.

‘It shows the commitment and dedication of not only our riders, but the families and coaches who support the riders to achieve their goals,’ he said.

‘Last year four Byford riders attended the Nationals so to have three times that number represent the club this year demonstrates the continuous development and improvement of the club as well as our athletes.’

To qualify for the event, riders had to compete in last year’s State Championships.

The national event will be live streamed via the BMX Australia website, to allow the domestic and international viewers to watch the competition.
