    Answer/SSquared BSX2020: Classes Announced

    There’s now 48 days to go until the Answer/SSquared BSX2020, the 15th running of the unique one-on-one BMX race for charity.

    After much deliberation and debate we have been able to finalise the classes for the Answer/SSquared BSX2020.

    With limited space and parking we will be splitting the racing into two blocks.

    The Morning Block will include (Approx 10:00 am until 12:30pm)

    • 8-13 Boys
    • 8-13 Girls
    • 45+ Open Wheel

    The Afternoon Block will include (Approx 12:30 pm until 5:00pm)

    • Open Men
    • Open Women
    • 30+ Open Wheel Men
    • 30+ Open Wheel Women

    With the venue change we have much tighter time restrictions, with the day starting at 10am and must finish by 5pm, we have had no choice but to make cuts. The retro class has been cut from the line up completely and the younger classes merged.

    We don’t have allowances for sprocket riders to ride at BSX2020. We do encourage parents to bring the sprocket riders along to BSX to enjoy the day and to our ride days, dates to be released soon.

    Entry forms should be available soon.

    What is BSX?

    BSX, short for Bicycle Supercross or Backyard Supercross, is an annual event that started in 2006. Since then the one on one elimination race has hosted thousands of BMX racers, and even dirt jumpers, from all over Australia and around the globe.

    Here’s a highlights video from the last event hosted at the Kinglake West venue.

    With 100% of profits going to charity the event has raised well over $58,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation and helped raise thousands of dollars for the Kinglake West Fire Brigade.

    The Answer/SSquared BSX2020 will be a special event, marking the 15 year anniversary of the backyard BMX bash.

    Just 19 days ahead of the first stop for the 2020 UCI World Cup

    It’s also just 19 days ahead of the first stop for the 2020 UCI World Cup that starts a two hour drive away. We’re hoping to attract some elite riders who might spend a little extra time in Australia making the most of the weather that the Australian summer is famous for.

    Don’t forget to save the date. Monday 13 January 2020. We will have more information for you soon.

    WHO CAN COMPETE AT BSX2020?

    It’s a common misconception that BSX is an invite only event. This is not the case, everyone is welcome to join in on the fun and festivities.

    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 $58,712 helping to providing the hospital with much-needed equipment.
