Camp Overview

The goal of Expert BMX Camp is to help young riders understand the movements and ideas of BMX.  It is an introduction to how to use their bikes and bodies as one, and become adaptable, creative riders - who can to progress into their own personal style.

The basics we teach will allow the rider to become aware of their body and bike, and help them develop the strength and skills needed to ride to the best of their ability in every situation - especially in competitions.

Our aim is not to conform a rider to any one particular style. It is simply to teach them the foundations necessary to progress on their own in a safe and structured program.

About the Coach - Vince Byron:

Vince is from QLD and has been riding BMX for 18 years.  He started competing in professional contests in Australia at the age of 16, and moved over the USA at 18 to pursue a pro career.  Over the next 10 years, Vince won multiple contests in both Vert and Mega Ramp - with the highlights being X-Games Gold Medals in Vert and Asian X-Games Gold Medals in Mega Ramp, plus multiple podium finishes at Dew Tour Events, X-Games contests and many others.

Vince has always worked hard to be a true BMX Athlete - keeping himself fit, strong and agile with multiple cross-training routines and fitness.  As a competitor, he's fantastic at planning his runs to maximise his result and respects the various mental challenges around competing in BMX - not just the physical challenge.

Most recently, Vince has been refining his coaching method by working with a variety of other sports, such as Gymnastics, and has also been on the Judging Panel of the recent Australian Freestyle BMX Nationals.

Vince is passionate about helping young riders progress and achieve their goals - his career has taught him many lessons about competitions, learning new tricks and adapting to an every-changing sport and now he is keen to pass these skills along to a new generation of BMX Riders.
