The month of May has been producing outstanding BMX racing in Australia and the most recent weekend had a tonne of events around the country. Have a read for yourself.

Not only celebrating racing, BMX clubs around Australia also took the time to celebrate Mother’s Day and the super mums that love our sport as well as the riders.

We begin with windy conditions at the San Remo BMX Club which had over 300 riders battling to get through the NSW track as quickly as possible. An amazing display of racing was on show that went well into the night for the new club.

The support and response from the riders and families track side speak for themselves so take a look at some of their posts on Facebook.

Into the results and some of the best riders in NSW were out in full force to show what they’re made of. Brad Shaylor from LMX Bicycle Supercross led the pack in the superclass men while in the superclass women’s it was Gemma-Lee Thomas from Castle Hill who took the top spot.

The best race of the day has to go to the 30+ masters with Dean Johnstone from Maitland Tenambit BMX Club taking the win but take a look below at what 8th place Christopher Page did… that’s one way to fall off your bike!
