What happens at Club Training Nights?


Everyone is put into ability groups, so if you are just starting out, you will be placed in a group with others who are also trying out the sport or of a similar age and ability as you.

Up to eight can race at one time in a gate, so remember to bring friends with you.

Trainings last approximately one hour.

At times training nights will be club race nights.


Who can race?


Anyone can race, no age restrictions- if you can ride, you can race.


What will I need?


To begin with, you won't need a whole lot of equipment. Basically you'll need a BMX bike which is mechanically sound and safety pads on the bike are a good idea.

Make sure all the bolts are tight, as well as your chain. Its recommended to have the seat post put right down.

Also check your grips and make sure that the handle bar ends are covered.


What should I wear?


Just come prepared with a long sleeve top and full length trousers.

Bring your helmet and wear shoes that have a soft sole.  The club has a limited number of full face helmets available for use at training on a first in first served basis each week. These helmets must not be removed from the track.

Don't forget to wear socks that cover your ankles.

Full finger gloves must be worn.

Note: All skin must be covered.
