GOULBURN BMX TRACK HISTORY

Back in the 1980's Goulburn BMX was born.

The Goulburn BMX track flourished thanks to the hard work of mum and dad volunteers. It provided a competitive outlet and enjoyment for young children and growing adults. The club hosted weekly competitions and Roberts Park, Avoca Street and the surrounding parklands of the PCYC were jam packed with competitors, families, vendors and onlookers all vying for a piece of race day excitement.

In 2013 the Goulburn council received funding and the BMX track

underwent a new development that saw a resurgence in the locals using the park. 

It wasn't designed as a legitimate racing facility sanctioned by BMX Australia or UCI (The BMX international governing body), it was more of a recreation park catering to riders of every skill level with the hopes of taking it to the next level one day. It was a

great achievement for all involved.

Today our historic BMX track is in need of serious attention. The topsoil that once laid foundation to the smooth runs has been washed away and the construction waste from dirty land fill has revealed it self on the surface. The starting platform that echoed the memorable "Riders Ready, Pedals Set" is now a grassy knoll, and most days the only thing catching air is the breeze.

MISSION STATEMENT

Goulburn BMX is a family orientated, community based club encouraging girls, boys, women and men of all ages, needs, cultures and religious backgrounds to partake in fair and unbiased work, play and competitiveness within a safe and responsible BMX racing environment. By providing a support structure to all individuals within the organisation we can focus on educating senior club members on the current nature of the sport and in turn, nurture, coach and elevate young motivated individuals by facilitating their transition from the grass roots level into the arenas of state, national, international and Olympic BMX competition.

 

THE FUTURE

Working with an international track designer will allow our members to ride, train and 

compete on a world class facility. Recent emails and conversations with Jason Schiefelbein from Tom Ritz Designs, the builders of the Olympic BMX tracks, have outlined the standards required to effectively construct a sustainable facility at the level required by BMX Australia and UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale, the sport's international governing body).

World Class Facility
Community Support

By developing talent you produce champions! 

BMX is a community sport that offers excitement, skill and healthy competition for girls and boys of all ages. It presents opportunities to grow, both physically and mentally in a positive environment. We plan to introduce junior through to senior age classes, midweek practice and coaching sessions, regular fundraising, social gatherings, awards nights, organised events and a solid support structure for both children and families of the club.

BMX Australia's development department has provided a detailed document on 'Starting A BMX Club'. It outlines how we can be come affiliated with BMX Australia and the correct business structures involved. With this as our backbone we will be able to run professional organised competitions and our riders will become familiar with the standard format practiced by clubs Australia wide.

At the forefront of this new era of Goulburn BMX are two local businessmen who were once members of the original club during the 1980's. Terry Bennett from Terry's Bike Shop in Bradley St and Cavan Te Ratana an entertainer who just over a year ago returned with his young family back to his home in Avoca St, directly opposite the BMX track.

 

Feel free to contact us on the details below. We'd really appreciate any feedback or questions you may have, and would enjoy meeting with you in person, preferably on our pushies down at the track.

About Us
 
BMX: The Road To The Olympics

BMX has come a long way since its origins dating back to 1956. From the days when young children would substitute motor bikes for bicycles and race around simple dirt tracks through to the sports Olympic debut in Beijing in 2008. The video below outlines this journey and the dedicated people from UCI, Tom Ritz Designs, Pro Gate and all the amazing BMX riders and teams who made it a reality.
