Shane Rosa from The Cove BMX Club and Ashlee Miller from Castle Hill BMX Club brought their ‘A’ game over the weekend and neither rider dropped a single race.

Take a look at Shane’s race below!

Ashlee Miller’s was just as good when she went head-to-head with 2016 national champion, Leanna Curtis. Watch it!

The seven rounds in the national series can be broken up as follows:

  • Rounds one, two and four are all UCI events, which means riders who contested a championship class at round one in Penrith must compete in all three UCI sanctioned events to be eligible to win.
  • Rounds three, five, six and seven will all offer superclass, which is open to all riders 14 and above. Championship class riders from UCI events may compete in Superclass.
  • Challenge/age classes will be available at all BMXA National Series rounds.

This means that you must plan your events accordingly and be smart about it! Your opponents may be going to events that you aren’t.

The next round of the national series is at Tuggeranong BMX Club on September 15-16. Entries are closing this Sunday at 11pm AEST… get in quick to avoid the late fee and maybe next round, we will see your name on the top of the standings.
