BMX Mania is Diggin' the Australian National Championships!
Since we were already in the area due to attending the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in Adelaide, Australia we figured that since the Australian National Championships are just the next weekend, that we'd stick around. Not a bad idea as BMX Australia decided to make a little BMX History in the process.
BMXA took the UCI Supercross track and did a few little adjustments to it for a racing surface for the Aussie Finals which includes little 'Sprockets' to 50+ Cruiser riders. OH! Did we mention that they kept the START HILL as well?
Uh.....History Making decision there, whoever made that one! Never before in the history of BMX have NON-Elite riders ridden on the UCI SX Start Hill.
