    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.
