Learn to ride from some of the best in the world in a once in a life time opportunity.

Rio Olympic gold medallist and 2017 Pro Champion, Connor Fields will be joined by a whole score of titled riders with their own skills and abilities at the the Balance BMX program at Centenary Plains BMX Club this Saturday April 14 for anyone ready to learn and love BMX.

Devised by BMX Queensland and a group of passionate BMX riders and coaches who wanted to offer a coaching event that provided more than the standard camps presented by state/zone associations. Balance BMX is an opportunity to blend learning with passion in a community spirit for riders of all abilities.

Leading the fray is Sean Dwight, who’s four decades of coaching and racing experience provides him with a fierce network of current/past riders and a handful of top quality coaches from within Australia and internationally.

“The goals for the day are to mentor riders in skill development, the successful mindset, career guidance and encourage creative thinking on the bike provided in an environment filled with real life BMX experience from past and present champions, “ Sean Dwight expressed.


Alongside Connor Fields, the jam-packed list of talented riders makes for what will be an unforgettable day. They are:

  • Connor Fields – Olympic Gold Medallist 2016, (USABMX) Pro Champion 2017
  • Warwick Stevenson – UCI World Champion 2004, (USABMX) Pro Champion 2001/2003
  • Khalen Young – Olympian London 2012, (USABMX) Pro Champion 2008
  • Tony Harvey – 2000 Elite National Champion
  • Jamie Gray – 2003 Elite National Champion
  • Trent Jones – Olympian Rio 2016
  • Brett Scruse – Multiple National Titles, 2 X World Titles

The drive for those who coordinate this program is to provide a life-changing experience in the careers of BMX riders. After all, it’s not often do you get to mix it with the current Olympic gold medallist on track. For those already signed up, the day should be unforgettable.

Giving young aspiring riders the chance to communicate with those who took a leap of faith and chased their dreams is what the underlying message of the camp is all about.

Combining the club’s ‘Ride In2 BMX day’, with the opportunity of bringing a large number of incredibly successful BMX riders to the club on one day, means the chance to give back to the community at Centenary Plains BMX Club. The uptake was immediate, and the hope is that the clubbies benefit from the interaction.

Also included in the day will be a Freestyle session, which will give riders who aren’t all about speed and track skill the chance to express themselves. One key member of the program, Bruce Morris, explains that the day is about showing anyone and everyone that BMX caters for the competitive and for the artistic.

“We think it’s a perfect leverage to invite new riders to try BMX alongside the chance to have a freestyle jam,” Morris explains.
