We're proud to announce that we've partnered with Cycling Australia to host the inaugural Freestyle BMX Nationals on the 24-25th of November!
With Freestyle BMX winning an inclusion into the Olympic Games from 2020, more and more major competitions have been springing up globally. Our Aussie riders have been extremely successful internationally, and we wanted to give them a chance to compete on home soil!
With Cycling Australia on board and supporting our Riders on the way to the Olympic Games, this will be the first opportunity for Freestyle Riders to earn themselves an official National Ranking - with the #1 Rider crowned National Champion.
The event weekend will also feature the Rampfest International - a UCI Sanctioned Points Event for the top riders to earn World Tour Points.
The Contest will feature National Championships in the following categories:
Junior – 14 & Under - Male / Female
Amateur - 15 & Over - Male / Female
Pro / Elite – Open Age - Male / Female
Events like this can't happen without the amazing support of our sponsors, so we want to thank Maribyrnong City Council, also Lux BMX (Brisbane), Village BMX (Brisbane), Hell On Wheels (Sydney), Back Bone BMX (Canberra), Anchor BMX (Melbourne), Strictly BMX (Melbourne), Little Black Bike (Adelaide) and Local BMX (Perth).

If you've been around Rampfest in the last couple of weeks, you've seen some BIG park changes happening.
You can read more about our park upgrades here: "Big Changes at Rampfest".
With all this happening, we've also got a few changes to our weekly schedule and our pricing structure starting as of Monday 8th of April.
If you've been to Rampfest anytime in the last 6-months, you might have heard the rumours about a major park update flying around... Well, we're pleased to let you know that they aren't just rumours! In the last week, we've started our biggest ever park update - spearheaded by our mate Jason Watts.
The upgrade is going to give the park new lines, new options and make it easier to ride for more people at once. We've been hearing a lot of people asking what exactly we're building, so we thought we'd give you a quick run down.
