Here’s what you need to know before the Aussie show rolls into town

The start of the BMX Nationals Series is drawing closer and closer! Round one will be kicking off at the Penrith BMX Club on February 17. With registration closing on January 26, make sure that you are prepared and ready to go for what will be a fantastic weekend!

Not only do we support our riders but also the clubs which help us run these exciting events. Therefore, car parking on the Saturday and Sunday of the event only requires a gold coin donation which will go towards the good cause of supporting Penrith BMX Club.

Gazebo hire for interstate and international clubs are available with three metre by three metre Gazebo’s supplied for the weekend for only $100 each! If you need any other additional equipment, don’t hesitate to get in contact with the club.

For preparation and training for the big event, Penrith will have their gates open every Wednesday and Friday from 6:30-8pm only for a fee of $3 a rider.

If you want additional time on the track for yourself or your team, two hours is available for your hire on January 15 and 16 at the price of $150.

If you or someone you know is interested in sponsoring a class on the day, be sure to get in contact with Penrith BMX Club who will name a race after you or a business.

For all these items as well as if you’re in need of any Pro shop assistance (including space at the track on the days), contact Penrith BMX Club at penrithbmxclub@gmail.com.
