    Here’s how our event plates will look this year with a massive thanks to Phirebird for making this happen.

    Block 1

    The eight fastest riders in each class will be given a number plate for their bike which shows how they ranked in the time trial. This must be worn for racing. At the end of the racing the riders can keep their number plate.

    Block 1 finalists (1st – 4th) awards will be extremely unique, like nothing seen in BMX before. They are especially created 15 cm tall number plate stands which have been supplied by Thinglab, specialists in 3D printing, scanning and related services and can be used as a stand alone trophy or you can slot your BSX2017 number plate into it.

    Block 2

    The 32 or 16 fastest riders (depending on number of riders) in each class will be given a number plate for their bike which shows how they ranked in the time trial. This must be worn for racing. These plates will be signed and handed back by the riders as they are eliminated, the plates are then auctioned off to help raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

    There are fastest lap time plates for the Open Men and Open Women’s classes, much thanks to Cam Small from Mac Components for supplying the plates and the artwork.

    Money for 1st – 4th place.
    The total prize pool is based on the pay pack system. The more riders, the more money, so make sure you get your friends along.
    The break down is 1st = 40%, 2nd = 30%, 3rd = 20%, 4th = 10%.

    BSX has raised over of $40,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital and $1,000’s for the Kinglake West CFA

    BSX is an annual event held in the Kinglake (Victoria) area during the Track Attack race week in January. Riders from all over the country gather in Melbourne for a week of racing. BSX is a stand alone event that is slotted into the week to give the riders something different to do.

    What is BSX?

    BSX is short for Bicycle Supercross, it’s a stripped back variation of BMX racing. Riders compete against each other in a one on one elimination style format. Instead of physical strength riders depend on skills and finesse, on a track like this even the smallest mistakes can be costly. As much as it’s challenging and fun for riders, it’s also designed for spectators and more particularly to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. All profits raised from gate takings, auctions, raffles and merchandise sales go to the Royal Children’s Hospital.

    What are the rules? (These need to be updated for BSX2017)

    1. Platform pedals only, no clip pedals or clip shoes allowed!
    2. This is a BMX event, only BMX bikes are allowed.
    3. Full race gear should be worn, including; full face helmet, full fingered gloves, shoes, long pants and long sleeves.
    4. Riders can choose their lane for their timed qualifying lap. Riders who fall in their time trial will not get a second chance, they should attempt to complete their timed run.
    5. Only the fastest 32 pro open men, top 16 pro open women, top 32 30 & over riders and the top 8 for block 1 classes, according to time trial results, will continue to the elimination rounds.
    6. Riders who qualify to the elimination rounds must wear the event number plate as supplied without covering the event sponsors logos. The numbers should not be changed or modified in any way. Block 2 riders only – Once you are eliminated you must sign the plate and return it to the race officials at the finish line.
    7. In the elimination rounds riders must stick to their side of the track without causing interference until the second straight. The lanes are decided by the rider from each round with the fastest qualifying time from the time trial. The winner of each round is determined by the rider who crosses the finish line first.
    8. Prize money for block 2 riders will be payback for open men & women and 30+ class (Max $1000 for pro open, $500 for other classes, remainder will be donated to the RCH).

The winner of the semi finals will race for 1st & 2nd and the riders who place second in the semi finals will race for 3rd & 4th.

    How does the elimination work? (This changes for BSX2017)

    The BSX transfer system was designed to make the racing as close as possible. It’s not run like other cycling elimination events.

    After a long ride/fun/practice/photo session we start the eliminations

    We have a time trial to work out the seeding. This is often done with transponders but has been done with stop watches. When a stop watch is used we use three of them so there’s no biased.

    Only the fastest 32 pro open men, top 8 pro open women (or 16 if numbers allow), top 16 30 & over riders (or 32 if numbers allow) and top 8 12 & under riders, according to time trial, will continue to the elimination rounds.

    If there are 32 riders in the first round:

    • #1 qualifier will race against #17 qualifier,
    • #2 qualifier will race against #18 qualifier,
    • #3 qualifier will race against #19 qualifier
    • and so on.

    If there are 16 riders in the first round:

    • #1 qualifier will race against #9 qualifier,
    • #2 qualifier will race against #10 qualifier,
    • #3 qualifier will race against #11 qualifier,
    • and so on.

    This essentially splits the eliminations into two pools, separating odd and even qualifiers.

    During each of the rounds the highest seeded rider gets lane choice.

    For each round the first across the line transfers through to the next round, the other rider is eliminated.

    We do this until we are down to the final four. The two winners of the semi final race in the A final (first and second), the other two riders race in the B final (third and fourth).

    Still don’t understand?

    There are a bunch of videos from past BSX events on our videos page. If they don’t help, it doesn’t matter, what matters is you come along and enjoy the atmosphere, get involved, spectate and maybe even win some of the coolest prizes on the planet. It’s a charity event and it’s awesome!

    High jump competition!

    We also have a high jump competition to break things up. It’s a great way to get the crowd revved up for a big day.

    BSX is also an official BMX club!

    Although we don’t hold regular races or gates sessions like normal clubs you can join the BSX club. We signed up as a club primarily to reduce our event over heads, especially insurance, in order to raise even more money for the Royal Children’s Hospital. While we don’t run regular events like a “normal” BMX club we do have a lot of social rides. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for updates.
