Cycling Australia is excited to announce that the City of Logan will be hosting the Centenary Plains Pro 1 & 2 – UCI C1 Freestyle Park event.
“This is a great win for BMX freestyle in Queensland, we’ve seen some fantastic talent comes from the local area such as Logan Martin, it’s great to see Logan City Council get behind this sport,” said Wade Bootes, Technical Director for BMX of the Australian Cycling Team.
“It’s fantastic to have the support of the Centenary Plains BMX Club at Waller Park along with the Logan City Council, without their assistance, events like this wouldn’t be possible. We’re really looking forward to watching some of the best battle it out”
This event is a great opportunity for locals to get out and see some of the best BMX riders in the world in their own backyard, but it’s also a great warm-up for the 2019 Cycling Australia Freestyle BMX National Championships which are being held at the remodelled Beenleigh Doug Larson Skate park in December.
A message from Logan City Council
The City of Logan is a strong and ongoing supporter of BMX.
That’s why Logan City Council is spending $3.1 million to upgrade Doug Larsen Park into Australia’s premier BMX freestyle and skate park facility.
The design of the new freestyle course was finalised after Council hosted a workshop that included Logan-raised BMX freestyle 2017 world champion Logan Martin along with representatives from Cycling Australia and the local BMX community.
Our city is home to several BMX clubs and a number of the sport’s champions.
Council is proudly supporting the Centenary Plains Pro at Logan’s Waller Park in Browns Plains on September 28 and 29 and welcomes all competitors, families, friends and fans.
We hope you enjoy your stay in the City of Logan and we look forward to hosting you again for future top-class BMX competitions.
The event in Waller park will be a curtain-raiser for the Freestyle BMX National Championship in December, which is for both amateur and professional riders.
Registration closes – Sunday 22 September – event limit 30 riders per class.
