MORE than 400 riders converged at Balcatta’s Westside BMX Club for the third round of the BMX WA State Super Series this month.
The event attracted 440 BMX riders and nearly 2000 spectators to the upgraded Balcatta Road facility.
The City of Stirling has helped with redevelopment of the site, including new clubrooms, reconstruction of spectator seating and entrance driveway, reticulation and ongoing works to upgrade track lighting.
President Kishani Green said the recent event gave visitors a chance to experience the updated facility.
“We have one of the best BMX facilities in Australia, and with the completion of the new infrastructure it now makes Westside BMX a truly world class race track,” she said.
“BMX in WA is a rapidly growing sport, and we have male and female riding members from two years of age right through to 70 years of age, so it is truly a sport which transcends the barriers of age and gender.
“We are very focused on promoting sport and healthy living to our local community at all levels, and the Super Series brings in riders and spectators from all over WA into Balcatta to watch and compete.”
The next Super Series competition is in Byford on April 8.
