BMX is an exciting Olympic sport providing fun and fitness for people of all ages, skill levels and gender.
In Australia, the sport is very family-orientated, with riders varying in ages from children to adults.
For those with great bike skills, professional ranks exist for both males and females with many riders going on to other forms of bike racing. BMX racing requires strength, speed and bike-handling flair, and allows for both team and individual participation.
There are many different types of BMX jumps and stunts, ranging from small rollers to massive step-up doubles – all dependent on the speed and skill of the rider. BMX racing generally takes place on purpose built off-road race tracks or skate parks, but can be practised on rural properties or bush runs.
