Answer/SSquared BSX2019: Bronze Partner RAD Factory Team

It’s just 12 days until the Answer/SSquared BSX2019 and we’re still adding partners to the event which means more prizes and more chances for you to win but also more money for our chosen charity, the Royal Children’s Hospital! Are you ready for the most fun you can have on two wheels? If you’ve ever thought of competing at BSX, the one of a kind one-on-one sprint trails/charity event, clear your calendar – Monday 14 January, Kinglake Victoria. There is nothing else like it.

Bronze Partner RAD Factory Team

We are pleased to welcome new Bronze Partner the Rad Factory Team to the BSX2019 line up!

Evolving from the passion and experience of three riders whom shared, and had a passion for BMX racing, brothers Russell & Dale Brown, have established a modern era form of a BMX racing team with a desire to provide opportunity, structure and discipline to a new age of rider. That being their children and associated friends whom share a passion to compete in the sport of BMX.

As a young group of riders back in the late 80’s, early 90’s, Dale & Russell inspired to be that rider from the 1986 movie RAD, aka “Cru Jones” incurring several trips to the hospital and armed with a competitive racing licence, all took to the BMX tracks of Australia with the intention to shred their passion with one goal in mind; to become the next state/national champion. No different to the passion and drive of the modern era rider.

Spending time away from the sport, developing new relationships and the introduction of their children and associated friends, founding members congregated to come up with a concept that would enable these riders to experience the support, obligations and opportunity of a team environment that will hopefully allow them to progress into the world of Factory Sponsorship should they choose to pursue a career and become successful in the modern era sport. That team being the RAD Factory Team (R- Russell, A – and, D – Dale).

Their team is driven by very highly motivated individuals whom seek sportsmanship, respect and discipline that will in turn reflect the traits of their values to riders, friends, family and sponsors whom support and provide RAD Factory Team with the best available opportunity’s and products.

BSX has been a passion of the RAD Factory Team since their return to the sport. They have all in some way shape or form experienced time in the Royal Children’s Hospital. Inspired by the contribution year on year which BSX makes to the RCH Good Friday and having first hand experience that most of their team (new and old) have all spent time in some way shape or another in such a wonderful facility during their time of need, makes the RAD Factory Teams partnership and support with the BSX seem priceless.

“We’re very proud to be associated with BSX and the Royal Children’s Hospital. The continued progression of such a world class facility is an integral part of our community, one the RAD Factory Team is proud to be supportive of”.

“Excitement, thrills and spills are just around the corner with the establishment of BSX Version 2.0. We look forward to attending and participating at this year’s event and wish every rider, official and family the best of luck. Stay safe and remember to live your dreams – Stay RAD”.

The Rad crew will be making a donation to the RCH and supplying us with some great t-shirts for raffle and random prizes.

ABOUT BSX

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 $55,712 helping to providing the hospital with much-needed equipment.
