The City of Marion and The Cove BMX Club will play host to top tier BMX racing when the fifth and final round of the 2020 BMX Australia National Series hits the Hallett Cove track on October 24.
After hosting a successful round of the series this year, the South Australian club has eagerly jumped on the chance to hold another, as riders from around the country come together to showcase their talent.
This year’s round involved over 300 riders and included South Australia’s Rio Olympic finalist Anthony Dean, who is preparing for another chance to return to Olympic action next year in Tokyo.
The national series will commence in Shepparton on January 31, with the Victorian track also hosting the first two rounds of the 2020 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup on February 1 and 2.
Competitors will be eager to descend on Adelaide as the 5-round showdown closes its doors for 2020 and will be the perfect place for riders to gain last minute points with the chance of being crowned a national series champion.
Riders will take to the gates in categories as young as 5-years old to 50+ while the fastest competitors in the country will battle it out in the superclass category.
BMX Australia’s CEO Martin Shaw was not surprised by the success this year’s event experience and didn’t hesitate to join forces with the City of Marion for another year.
“The feedback from riders, coaches and officials showed that The Cove is an ideal venue for a national series round, and it was an obvious choice to team up with The City of Marion again,” Shaw said.
“We know that the council is working to bring top-level events to the region and with their help, we look forward to producing yet another top-class event for the BMX community in Australia.”
