BMX best race here in Gympie

THRILL fans around south-east Queensland are in for a dose of adrenaline when the south-east Queensland BMX Championships hit Gympie this weekend.

The event starts today with a march-past in the morning before the talent rolls up to the starting gate to show their stuff on the hills and in the air.

Organisers will be less concerned by any predictions of rain since a new roof over the starting gate will protect equipment and keep races going should things turn damp.

Cooloola BMX president Chris Rodighiero said more than 500 riders would hit Gympie's tracks this weekend. The line-up included Olympian Jamie Gray and the pro open men's class promised an exciting display of speed and action.

Riders would compete in a whopping 48 races, in six motos that have been scheduled for the weekend.

Club members have been working tirelessly to ensure the venue and track is at its best.

The event is on this weekend at the Cooloola BMX club's Wises Rd track.
