Hot is an understatement to describe the temperature at Shepparton BMX Club for the first round of the 2020 national series. The weather forced a delayed starting time but that didn’t deteriorate the riders’ spirits as just over 300 joined us in the heart of Victoria for the start of the new series.

With the next round in under a month at Nerang BMX Club, we delve into an overview of what went down on Friday night.

The evening was cut down to two motos for all classes, one semi-final for select classes and finals with the night’s racing closing up around 9:30. The shorter practice time and shorter day of racing didn’t faze many as racing was rapid and intense on a beautiful, lit up Shepparton track.

As the UCI BMX SX World Cup was taking place the next day, the Greater Shepparton City Council had plenty of food vendors, stores and facilities available for all spectators, enhancing the overall atmosphere.
