General Discussion / Tracks around Brisbane
« on: November 12, 2014, 07:35:25 AM »
Going up to Brisbane Friday night for 5 days - staying in the Hillcrest area.  Are there any tracks close by that are open so I can get some practice in?

My favourite was the Warnambool/Portland double header before Warnambool got their new track. 

I like supporting the smaller clubs that struggle for numbers, they were always friendly and fun races, You often raced against some people you normally didn't race as some the SA guys came across.

The Eastern Vic region always get great numbers and the non metro clubs ALWAYS have representation at those races, but very few of the eastern region members travel to the likes of Portland, Warnambool, Border and Bendigo which is a shame.

It will be the cleats!

One of the people I help coach unclips a bit, put new cleats on and he does not unclip until cleats are worn again.

Thanks for that site Shane, I could not remember it!

Had a look and it does appear to be a genuine 1983 GT Pro built in January 1984 at Huntington Beach according to info found on

Just trying to determine if this is an original GT frame or just a frame with GT stickers.

It does have a serial number on it, but I cannot find a list anywhere to determine if is real.

2014 BMX Victoria State Titles will be a stand alone UCI event.

Host venue is Knox BMX club...start hill complies with UCI requirement of 2.5m start hill for a C1 class international event.

Yeah, but it seems the governing bodies can bend the rules when they want.  Look at the Aussies in Perth, Held in an equestrian centre!  Side wall of the Arena was the side line.  I know I was put into the wall by a guy who did a bad manual and hit me.  Track was barely 240m long and extremely unsafe.  Nearly all passing was done by T-Boning the person in front of you as the corners were WAY too tight to carry any speed.  It could not have been compliant but they still ran it there!

Knox is an example of what this thread is about.  Main doubles on 1st straight is jump or apply brakes and hold on.  3rd straight is aimed directly at the Elite riders, Jump through it, do some extremely deep long manuals or do as 90% of the riders do, pump through it and hold on for dear life!!!  Even the A Pro riders struggle on this straight!  Where is the fun, excitement in that, for the rider or the spectator???

In Vic each club had to put the loops and wiring in place, the actual timing equipment belongs to BMXV and they bring to each cost to club was reasonable to install.
