Prolab Projects, a 2017 start up business, will be capturing this weekend’s national series round at the Frankston BMX Club, with high quality pics available for purchase across the weekend and post event.

Round two of the 2018 BMX Australia National Series is headed for Frankston, Victoria this weekend and with more than 600 entries there is set to be plenty of memorable moments on and off the track. Capturing the action will be creation start-up ‘Prolab Projects’, founded by Stephanie Comelli of Melbourne.

Across the event Prolab will be snapping a selection of highlights of the racing, and to get a feel for what they’re about, you can check them out on Instagram – instagram.com/prolabprojects.

Photography will make up one element of the coverage of this week’s event, which will be flush with previews, track breakdowns, social media updates and highlights of all the racing, race reports and key editorial.

Behind the lens, Comelli will bring to the track a fresh set of eyes, ready to tell a story or two through her images. The Melbournite founded Prolab Projects last year while working on a personal project named @she.scores, which champions women in sport.

That project has been solely focused on AFLW for past few years. However, it led to the creation of Prolab when football players began to approach Comelli with the need for photo work of their ‘out of footy’ ventures. The idea was that Prolab could assist players in creating content for their brands.

Throughout this process, the common denominator in all of Comelli’s work is one thing – a passion for all aspects of sport, be it the action, lifestyle or spectacle of competition…and BMX, is not short of spectacular footage!

On track events this weekend begins with practice sessions from 12pm AEST on Saturday April 21, with motos one and two for all except championship classes running from 3:30pm AEST.

Sunday will see championship classes hit the track for the first time, while all other classes commence with moto three from 9:15am AEST. Qualifiers commence from 10:30am AEST, while gates will drop for finals from 11:45am AEDT.

Riders are reminded that registration takes place from 10am – 3pm on Saturday April 21 and will not be available at other times. It is also important that riders have their own transponder, which is ready for the weekend of competition.
