We plan to update this page to give you more information on the riders perspective of the 2009 World Championships.
Keep an eye out for: Local tracks to ride, some general information about Adelaide and Australia
Visitors to Australia usually know all about the cute and cudly looking Koalas and Kangaroos, they usually have an idea of what a Tassie Devil is too (even though its based on a cartoon character). But what about all the rest of the Australian Native animals? Animals like the Wombat, Wallaby, Platapus, Echidna, what about the Frill necked lizard and a whole bunch of snakes.
If you are interested in checking out the Australian wildlife here are a few links that you might find helpful:
Places to Ride
We'll list some of our personal favourite riding spots, and places close to the city, but natually it's just personal preference:
- John Nicolls reserve pump track - Cnr John St & Bristol St, Aldinga Beach (Highly recommended)
- The Cove BMX Track - Hallett Cove, off Oval Road
- West Beach Skate Park - Africaine St, West Beach
(This section of the page will hopefully grow over time, but no promisses)
