The 2019 BMXA BAD BOY National Championships in Shepparton was a resounding success for all involved. From the riders on track, to their cheering spectators and even… Shepparton itself!

Over 1500 riders from around the country came together to bask in the excitement of the national championships and bringing with them a $6 million boost to the local economy.

With 74% of attendees travelling from outside of Victoria, the biggest expenditure was accommodation, with the region’s hotels and camping grounds earning $1 million on its own. Other categories included shopping, dining out and attractions.

The economic success the national championships brings to an area is a reoccurring trend. There was an economic boon to Bunbury last year when the regional town in Western Australia played host to the event, bringing with it a reported $2.9 million injection.
