Club racing is held every Friday night except during school holidays. Riders race in divisions where they ride against other riders of their ability.
Nominations: please bring BMXA Licence to the Rego hut between 5.30pm & 6.00pm. If you are running late, please phone through to the club on 49275727 so you/your rider is still included in the nights racing.
Gate practice: 6.00pm -6.25pm
If raining please check the Facebook, your email or call a committee member.
Nomination fee for racing is $8.00 per rider. Mini Wheelers is $2.00
Nominations must be in by 6.00pm.
Our hard working Registration volunteer score all challenge class riders. As per Australian Junior Sport policy our Sprocket riders and Mini Wheelers are not scored and will all receive the same reward. The following week, riders are awarded tokens, generic ones for Sprockets and Mini Wheelers and placing tokens for the top 8 challenge class riders (in each class) during break for their results the previous week.
Scoring is complex but at the end of the day the lower the score the better. First over the line scores 1 point, second - 2, third - 3 through to 8 points for eighth place. The points for all motos (races) are then added together to work out final positions. When we run a night with finals, if a class has 8 or fewer riders overall scores are calculated the same as a normal race night, but if a class has more than 8 riders results come down to a final. The eight riders with the lowest scores from the motos move forward to a final, the outcome of that final only determines a riders placing for that event.
At Rockhampton BMX Club, we normally run 3 motos, break, 3 motos with no finals. Some weeks we may also have fun nights or nights with finals.
Training sessions are held at the track every Tuesday night for Division Riders and Wednesday night for Mini Wheelers and Sprockets (depending on weather )except during school holidays. All sessions are conducted by accredited coaches although parental help is required.
If raining please check Facebook, your email or call a committee member to see if training is still on.
Sessions are as follows:
|Beginner - Intermediate||6.00pm - 7.00pm|
|Intermediate - Advanced||7.00pm - 8.00pm|
|Mini Wheelers||5.00pm - 5.15pm|
|Sprockets||5.15pm - 6.00pm|
Please bring a water bottle and again, riders must be accompanied by a responsible adult please.
All riders must be signed in to training and gates. Please visit the canteen and add your rider’s name to the list before training or gates gets underway.
Up to 10 volunteers are required to run a club race meeting. Help is required from aprox.6-8.30pm on Friday night in the canteen and from 5.30pm on Wednesday and Friday nights with general track maintenance. A new volunteer will not be thrown in the deep end. They will have an experienced person run through the ropes with them and stay with them until they are confident to do that position by themselves. If you can assist please let one of the committee know and they will put you on the volunteer board.
