We are only a couple of sleeps away from the second stage of the 2019 BMXA BAD BOY National Series at the Westside BMX Club in Perth and riders from as far as field as Atherton BMX Club (North Queensland) will be making an appearance for another chance of national series points.
Those making an appearance (nearly 350 riders) will get to experience not only the excitement of racing on a cracking track, but also get to be part of the special atmosphere which is always present at national series events.
Working hard on the track has been Westside’s vice president David Rapley and his team of dedicated volunteers.
“The track is coming along really well, we had the (WA) super series at our track about three weeks ago and the track was extremely fast, we know the riders will love it this weekend,” Rapley said.
“We started preparing for it in about November and we recommenced work on it straight after New Year’s. We are really excited, and the team have been putting in an inordinate amount of time in the last three to four weeks. The track was already in great nick but we wanted it to be perfect.
“The recognition that the club will get from the national series is outstanding, more importantly the track itself which is top class. It really gives us the chance to showcase the club and our sport in the state to the general public and BMX fraternity. It attracts riders from all over and we love visiting riders joining us.”
This weekend (March 2-3) will contain round three of the superclass on Saturday, followed by the first UCI round of the series on Sunday. Joining the top tier riders will be round two of the challenge classes who will compete across both days.
