Event Overview

We're proud to announce that we've partnered with Cycling Australia to host the inaugural Freestyle BMX Nationals!  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.

Category Qualification Rules

Junior Category

  • 14 and under (year of birth 2004)
  • Does not meet any of the conditions that automatically categories them as a Pro
Amateur Category
  • 15 and over (year of birth 2003)
  • Does not meet any of the conditions that automatically categories them as a Pro

Pro / Elite Category

  • Any Age - if you believe you are capable, you can enter Pro and test yourself!

The following conditions automatically qualify you for the “Pro” category – if you meet any of these, you are not eligible to compete in a lower category:

  • Listed as a member of a Pro BMX Team (by a major sponsor)
  • Have competed in a Pro / Elite International Event within the last 3 years
  • Have made Finals at a Pro / Elite Domestic Event within the last 3 years

Please Note:

The purpose of these competition categories is to make the event fair and accessible to all riders.  There are no limitations on rider’s competing in a higher category to what they are eligible for – in fact, we encourage competitors to push themselves to compete in the highest category possible.  The goal of these rules is to ensure that we do not have “sandbagging” – riders deliberately competing in the lowest possible category to gain an unfair advantage or easy win. The event judges will have discretionary power to alter the category of any competitor if they believe that they are acting against the spirit of the competition and outside of good sportsmanship.

 

Event Format 

Each Category of the event will have a set number of Rounds of Competition.

Each Round of Competition will follow the same format:

  • Riders given 2x 1min Runs on the course
  • A run is determined by the judges confirming the rider is ready to start, the clock starts when they drop in.
  • A buzzer will sound at the end of 1min.  Any tricks not completed within this time will NOT count to the score.
  • The Judges will score each run individually according to the Judging Criteria outlined below
  • The Highest scoring run will count to the riders final placing in that Round of Competition
    • The lower score is only used in situations of a tie – where 2x riders have an identical highest run score, the winner will be determined by who has the higher 2nd run score.

 

Junior Competition Format

Made up of one Round of Competition.  The results of this Round will be the final placings.

Riders will be broken up into Heats of 10 at random to perform their runs.
