Having recently hosted their first event, this BMX club is reaching for the stars!
It’s always an exciting time when we get to add more members to our BMXA family. Casey BMX Club in Victoria has joined the fray and has set its sights on being one of the biggest clubs in Australia!
Discussions for the development of the BMX track started in 2016 with the former City of Casey Mayor, Cr Sam Aziz stating that, “Figures show that Casey is home to a large number of registered BMX riders and that is only going to continue to grow, so there is both an immediate and future demand for a BMX racing facility within the municipality.”
Finally built, the $2.87 million project designed by Dirtz boasts a wide range of features which are different to the other Victorian tracks.
Casey Fields BMX race track coming along very nicely. Dirtz will hit the ground later in August to build and shape the jumps and berms. Single 5m, dual second & third. Big jumps are actually on third straight due to a prevailing wind. So Melbourne will be sporting a very impressive new BMX facility by the end of the year. This one has been well thought out and used the right people in the right places. Hats off to City of Casey.

Working alongside Brett Barnes and his Dirtz team, National Team Manager, Luke Madill went and inspected the track and had some exciting comments.
“It’s definitely an amazing track which caters for all ages and abilities. This club will have a big future in hosting BMX Australia events.”
The track took four months to build and includes some incredible features which have been provided by the Casey City council. A particular aspect that Kristel Stagg, President of this newfound club, exclaims about is the quality of room and facilities which are on offer.
“The council has put a lot of effort into the whole sporting precinct and this technical track is very unique in our state”.
The club recently hosted the last round of the 2018 Track Attack Series and the positive feedback was a very exciting reward for all the hard work that has been put into the track.
There are currently 13 members pledging their allegiance to the club from Mini Wheelers up to 20+. The club president is hoping to get up to 200 members in the next two to three years alongside the hosting of the National Series and the Championships.
We look forward to watching this club grow and wish it all the best with its goals in the coming years. Oh and welcome to the BMXA family!
