Round 1 of the 2018 BMX Australia National Series kicks off this weekend at the Penrith BMX Club, and providing the images for the weekend are the team from LUXBMX/RACE.

It’s a big weekend for the brand, as they also debut the Chase/LUXBMX race team, who are new on the scene and are packing a punch with budding BMX riders Max Cairns, Izaac Kennedy, Ashlee Miller, Shannon Petre, Dean Patch, Wade Turner, Phoebe Wallen and youngster Harvey Brooks.

Across the weekend the guys behind the lens will be snapping a selection of highlights of the racing, which will be posted to an online gallery at following the event.

The photo gallery will be just one part of a big weekend of action, which will be covered by previews, track breakdowns and highlights of all the racing, race reports and key editorial.

Find these on the BMX Australia website and social media channels and especially don’t miss the best pics in the LUXBMX/RACE BMXA National Series Round 1 Photo Gallery!
