The penultimate round of the 2018 BMX Australia National Series is done and dusted and wasn’t it a belter. Check out our wrap up of the action.

The BMX club in the nation’s capital played host to quite a few riders from around the country… over 400 of them… and didn’t they do it well!

The members of Tuggeranong BMX Club worked tirelessly in the build-up to the event and everything from the track to the bacon and egg rolls were on point.

Two days of jam-packed action across all age groups and classes had the spectators cheering with every gate drop.

Alongside competing with friendly rivals, competitors battled windy conditions on Saturday followed by testing temperatures on Sunday. But that didn’t stop them from enjoying themselves.

Take a look at the Saturday wrap featuring some special members from the Tuggeranong team.
