This was the first Bmx Ireland awards party, held in the Red Cow Hotel Dublin, The club organised a coach and 50 riders went to the party. This was an idea to make the prize giving a day of its own to allow everybody from kids to parents and officials to meet without the stresses of race day which often doesn't leave much time for prize giving. 
Along with the official Trophies & Plates awarded there was awards for everybody who took part. Plates Signify overall top 8 Race series standings

Buy A Bmx For Christmas 2017

Here is a re-post of this useful blog as Christmas is just 10 weeks away. 

We at Belfast City BMX club want to promote the sport of BMX racing within Northern Ireland, but understand that it’s new to most kids and parents alike, and therefore can be confusing how to get involved.

Getting the right bike is critical, as there are many different BMX bikes, for street/ park, dirt jumping, flatland and BMX racing.

Although similar in appearance race bikes generally have aluminium frames for lightness, thinner tyres & a single rear “V” type brake & also do not have stunt pegs or gyros. The geometry of the frames is also different as they are built for speed rather than doing tricks.

BMX bikes are not “a one size fits all” bike & it is important to choose the correct size and type of bike. All too often we see youngsters on bikes that are too big or small & this can cause poor bike control.
