Cycling Australia welcome

Mayoral welcome

I am delighted to welcome everyone to Bathurst for Rounds #3 and
#4 of the always exciting UCI BMX Supercross World Cup.

Bathurst is known internationally for car races at Mount Panorama,
especially the Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000 and the Liqui Moly
12 Hour. The city is also home to a range of world-class sporting
facilities and is set to debut on the world BMX stage in February

I would like to acknowledge the Wiradjuri People the Traditional
Owners of the land on which we are gathered, and pay my respects
to their Elders both past and present.

Bathurst is excited to host one of two Australian rounds of
the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup with the other being
held in Shepparton, Victoria.

Cycling Australia is very excited to present a UCI BMX
Supercross World Cup in Australia for the first time. We
have a long and proud tradition of participation and
excellence in BMX, so it’s particularly pleasing to have this
event on Australian soil.

Council has invested in a world class BMX track capable of
hosting international events and the UCI BMX Supercross
World Cup will bring hundreds of competitors from across
the globe to Bathurst. Some of those competing are likely
to take to the world stage again later next year when they
compete at the summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Over two days at the Bathurst BMX Track, we will witness
some of the world’s very best supercross cyclists racing as
they chase glory towards the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
I would also like to recognise the Sport Australia for its
guidance and significant commitment as
Cycling Australia’s principal partner.
We would also like to recognise all the event
staff and volunteers.

The city is ready to welcome the BMX fraternity for the
event and we look forward to seeing
you in February and look forward to
watching all the BMX action on track.

We hope you enjoy the action.
