Elite and Junior Elite riders competing in the Oceania BMX Championships on Saturday March 4 in Bathurst will be required to wear their national colours for the event, with a career number printed onto it.

In accordance with the rule 6.1.083 as set out in the UCI Cycling Regulations Part VI (BMX), Australian licensed riders will be required to race in their Australian jersey, New Zealand riders in theirs, and so on for riders of other nations. The jersey to be worn is the one that was used at the most recent world championship event in Colombia last year.

Once jerseys have been purchased, further instruction will be provided by BMX Australia. Please note that jerseys will be given to you when you register for the event in Bathurst. BMX Australia staff will also ensure that any jerseys purchased will be delivered with rider numbers printed on them.

Rule 6.1.083: According to article 1.3.059 every rider competing in a BMX world championship (Championship, Challenge and Masters level) and at the continental championships (Championship level) must wear a national team BMX jersey matching the jerseys of his fellow-countrymen, in accordance with article 1.3.056 and the following. The only variation allowed shall be advertising on the jersey. The national team jersey must be worn whenever a rider is engaged in activities on the track, prize giving ceremonies, press conferences, television interviews, autograph sessions and other occasions during the event, which require a good presentation to the media and the outside world.
