We’re just 14 days until the Answer/SSquared BSX2020, that’s right just 2 weeks to go until the 15th running of the unique one-on-one BMX race for charity that raises much needed money for the Royal Children’s Hospital.
New Silver Partner: District Cycle Store
We’d like to welcome District Cycle Store to our line up of partners. Brett Tyack is the head honcho at District Cycle Store. The mid school BMX elite rider out of Bendigo may not have raced for some time but he’s always kept his finger on the pulse when it comes to BMX racing. He’s always been a fan of BSX although he hasn’t competed at an event before he’s spent a lot of time riding the track. It’s not surprising that he wanted to get involved with BSX as a partner.
We are very excited to have District as a partner for the upcoming event and would love to announce they will be supplying a pro sized Haro Annex complete race bike for one lucky winner.
About District Cycle Store
District Cycle Store is located at 66 John Street Pakenham and sells the full range of complete bikes to cater for the whole family including BMX race products. They also offer a fully equipped workshop for servicing and repairs and restorations.

New Bronze Partner: Phil Kaye Racing
Phil Kaye of Phil Kaye Racing has been a big supporter of BSX in the past, and if you were wondering, yes Phil is still out of the business, but he had some left over gear from GHP and PKR that he wanted to supply us to help raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital.
You will need to keep a close eye on our social media channels to see what he has in store for us.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Phil for his continued support and generosity.

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.

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.
