Irish National Series 2018 Round 2 & 3 Lisburn


Irish National Series 2018 Round 2 & 3 Lisburn 13 & 14 May.

For two days in May behind a tired park
The sun came up and chased the dark
Along the rattling train track across from the pub
from a little place called Lisburn Bmx Club

The gates were opened, the cars poured in
Aidy’s speakers began their din
Back windows framed little anxious faces
All here for the Irish National BMX races

Five tens laced resting on bumpers
Goggles breathed on, wiped on jumpers
A wheel wobbles from a forgotten beating
Coffee drank, old friends meeting

Sign on and practice, the rhythm we know 
More people come to say hello
Quiet now nearly time.

Riders to the pens.
Riders ready, watch the gate...

Jacob J 1st time out. Little rippers Jamie H and Tommy C, all the L’s Luis, Lucas, Luca, Lucy. More girls Meg and Molly. Then boys again Jamie D, Ozzy, Andre, Martin, Nick and Daniel. Then men Peter, Ian every one filled with belief and doubt,
Every one  did their thing and rode their hearts out.

Two days blurred into one. Sunshine, dust in eyes, in nostrils, burgers, bodged carbon forks, hotdogs, joy, a 16th  birthday,  chainrings, disappointment, friendship, tea, quiet spaces on far corners, nausea, elation, A listers, B finals, new starts and hard sore broken endings....

Packed up and home.

See you all at Courtown for round 4.

HSBC UK BMX National Series
One of our star riders Jamie Harron travelled to Manchester this weekend for the 1st and 2nd rounds of the UK BMX National Series, This 7 year old braved the 5m start hill on this tricky course with some great results. Jamie pictured on the 5 meter start hill.

Saturday HSBC UK BMX National Series Round 1.

He led the 3rd Moto then went too high on the second berm and lost the lead, tiredness got him on the last straight and got caught on the line to finish 3rd. Moto results 2, 2, 3. Not bad!
2nd to his friend Evan Bartley from Lucan Bmx in their semi final.

12 Week Training Programme & Flat Ground Skills belfast city bmx club

Last night saw some of most dedicated kids from BCBC and Lisburn Bmx club take part in a very cold evening of training that saw temperatures at just 1° with a windchill that was laying down a frost. Following on from our Bmx boot-camp last year, Now we have our 12 Week Training Programme & Flat Ground Skills, this is part of our pre race season training to get ready for the first National race in Lucan on April 8th. Very similar to the Bmx boot camp we have fitness 30min cross-training and 30min flat bike skills, this time we have raised the standard with beeb-tests for fitness testing and 60m gate sprints using our Prostart Timing lazer timing and portable 1 man start gate, this has enabled us to accurately record and monitor progress, This programme is part funded by Belfast City Council “Everyone Active 2020” , is open to everybody, and you can start at any point, so come along or get in-touch to find out more.
More pictures from last night here.

2017 Belfast City Bmx Club AGM

We held our club AGM a little later this year as we wanted to attend the earlier governing body agm's then it was difficult to agree a date on the run up to Christmas so we held it on the 3rd of January, in the Wellington Park Hotel the place the club was first formerly formed in late 2014.

We had a good turn out from club members and were able to give a review of the 2017 year with a summary of membership growth particularly young riders.

Acknowledgement of our sponsors Contac Claims and Frazer Kidd
The great season for our riders particularly the youth riders in the national series as well as the club leagues, and of course our team of 9 taking part in the European championships.
A review of our finances allowing us to purchase a Prostart Gate and timing equipment, (which we will have more information on shortly.)
We have also had lots of meetings with council and councillors

BMX BOOTCAMP

A late blog, but an important part of our pre- Christmas training. From October the 12th for 10 weeks to December the 14th we were doing Bmx BootCamp at our training ground at Henry Jones Playing fields.
Funded by Belfast City Council's Sporting Halloween, This was something different to move training up a level during the winter months, when most people stop training we were not only at Lisburn on Tuesdays and the weekend, this Thursday evening training with 10 sessions split into 30 minutes cross-training exercises such as star-jumps, bur-pees, shuttle runs and more. Then the second 30 minutes flat bike skills including the core skills cornering, braking, accelerating and balance. We have seen great improvements in the kids fitness and skills and look forward to seeing the gains in the 2018 race season.
Our next series of training at Henry Jones playing fields starts Thursday 11th of January see here for details.
