BMX (Bicycle Moto Cross) is one of the fastest growing sports in Australia. It’s a sport where the whole family can participate and riders of all ages (from 2 - 50+) can compete in organised race meetings throughout Australia.
BMX racing ranges from club level to state level and right through to national and world championships events for all ages. BMX is also an elite Olympic sport! Any rider (subject to qualification requirements) has the chance to ride at the Australian National Championships and compete in World Championships!
BMX is a sport for the whole family, not just the kids – mum and dad can get involved too!
Each can race and enjoy competition in their own age groups, with riders of similar skill levels.
BMX is a sport where great friendships can be made and the competition structure ensures everyone can be involved as a rider, official or even as a coach! (Subject to accreditation and screenings). If you’re already riding, or looking to start, also take the time to consider volunteering for your club.
All you need is either a 20inch or 24inch (Cruiser) BMX bike to get on track. Remove any mudguards, chain guards, the kick stand, pegs and reflectors for the safety of yourself and other riders. Ensure that there are no sharp edges on your handlebars (i.e. no torn grips with exposed metal or pedals, etc). The only other thing you need is a rear brake that works!
Before rolling onto the track your bike will be checked by an official and they will help with any minor adjustments.
BMX Mini Wheelers are aged between 2 - 7 and focus on the basic skills needed to enjoy riding! Once mastered, riders make the transition to a 20-inch BMX bike at around five-years of age.
Until then Mini Wheelers practice on a ‘balance bike’, which has no pedals and wheels no larger than 13-inches. Riders need a helmet (full face or regular bicycle helmet that meets Australian standards), long pants, long sleeved shirts, enclosed shoes and full-fingered gloves. Some riders also elect to use knee and elbow pads for additional safety.
