The Cairns BMX Club

Situated in the heart of Cairns is the Cairns BMX Club. Our club has been going strong for 35 years and is now home to over 300 passionate riders who come week in week out to ride at the track and enjoy the fantastic facilities we have on offer.

We have been proactively marketing the sport of BMX here in Cairns and this is showing as each week we are having more and more people visit the track to try out what the sport of BMX can offer.

With a list of large successful events already under our belt we know that we are experienced in organising events of magnitude and can offer a positive experience for riders, sponsors and spectators.

Over the last few years, the club has been the host to some major BMX events such as the 2012 QLD State Championships and the 2011 Australian Titles of late. Both events were a huge success with many riders rating the club facilities as one of the best in the country.

Our Track

Our track, which was re-modelled for the 2012 Qld State Titles, is in fantastic condition and has received many favourable compliments from riders of all ages and destinations. The track is continually maintained in this condition and we believe fast and challenging to all riders and the high standard expected of our elite riders.

The total length of the track is 400m with a 10m width down first straight and an 8m width to the second straight and a width of no less than 5m for the remainder of track. The height of the start hill is 5m with an angle of 15o to 20o, it has been constructed strictly in accordance with UCI requirements. The track has a number of technical parts including a pro section and rhythm section. All berms are concrete and allow for a safe entry and exit for riders at race speed and the turns the minimum height of 5m.

Our starts gate system is an approved UCI World Standard start gate system with random start mechanism which the club purchased and installed mid 2009. The club has three (3) air compressors and tanks for operation of the start gate.

Infrastructure

We believe our venue can entertain a crowd of 3000 riders and spectators and also provide participants with the adequate areas they need to compete. This was proven recently when we held the Nationals and State Titles where we held record crowd numbers comfortably.

We are fortunate enough in our track surrounds to have an abundance of parking easily available to hold over 1000 vehicles and trailers per day. Spectator facilities are abundant at the track; we have viewing areas around the whole perimeter of the track. Our track has a volume of land surrounding the facility and this means that we have been able to build large spectator areas.
