And just like that we are down to under a week until the Answer/SSquared BSX. If you haven’t heard of BSX it’s a one on one sprint trails elimination event that’s set up to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. It’s definitely not your standard BMX race meeting! Join us on January 15 at Kinglake in Victoria for the most fun you will have on two wheels.
Welcome Gold Partner: Thinglab
We are very excited to announce the return of Gold Partner Thinglab.
After the massive success of last year’s unforgettable custom BSX trophies, which doubled as number plate stands, we have joined forces once again with Thinglab. Thinglab are a Melbourne based 3D technology company with a focus on providing 3D scanning and printing sales and services Australia wide.
We had a different idea this year for the trophy. BSX celebrates BMX roots, a race by racers for racers and of course the traditional platform pedal is one of the keys to the event. Since Answer BMX are our major sponsor we had Thinglab scan a Answer MPH senior flat pedal and mounted it to a base. Where trophies were gold, silver, bronze and black for the top four positions, this year they will be in vibrant blue, red, green and black.
As always the experience with the guys from Thinglab has been amazing from concept to the final product.
We’d like to thank the Thinglab crew for going above and beyond to support the event and we look forward to seeing the faces on the winners of these amazing trophies.

BSX (Bicycle Supercross) is one-on-one sprint trails style BMX racing on a backyard track built specifically to test a rider’s skills. The short straights, lofty jumps and tight corners are intense under race conditions, offering a fun and entertaining event for competitors and spectators alike. The event provides a unique experience for the local Victorian riders, as well as the interstate and international visitors during an off day of the annual BMX Victoria Track Attack series.
The primary goal BSX is to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation but there’s so much more to the event. It creates an atmosphere that words just can’t describe. Since the very first event in 2006, BSX has raised over $50,000 helping to providing the hospital with much-needed equipment.
