BMX OPENS IN BACCHUS MARSH
Welcome Bacchus Marsh - Victoria’s newest club - to the BMXA family!
After commencing discussions with their local council back in 2010, the Bacchus Marsh BMX Club, located 50 kilometres north west of Melbourne, is officially affiliated with BMXA.
President of the newly rebuilt club, Les Stewart, is proud to be finally at the end of their very long road and can’t believe that their opening day is this weekend.
“I grew up here in Bacchus and back in the 80’s, BMX was quite big here,” Stewart explained.
“It all started when my son began racing about 12 years ago. We were going to a lot of the race meets and we started running into kids from school.
“We sort of scoped our area and realised that there was big participation based in Bacchus Marsh and we would all have to travel to Sunbury to compete. So, a few of us got together and went to council, that was back in 2010.”
