Lisburn Summer Series 2018 Round 3

Ewan Ewart from belfast city bmx club at 2018 Lisburn Summer Series.. Round 3 2018
And that’s a wrap for 2018....... Sunday was the third and last of the Lisburn Summer Series, and what a day it was ! Thankfully the sun was shining on us, unlike yesterday when it was originally planned 🌧 Before the racing, the red ribbon was cut on the fantastic facility at Lisburn BMX track. The racing was fantastic, with a record breaking 106 riders entered for a club race, it was great to see a mix of abilities from as young as 3 years old. After the recent success of the BMX fundamentals a few novice categories were added, and they proved every bit as exciting as the seasoned riders. Definitely some great little racers in there for 2019. Thanks to Lisburn BMX Club for the great event, organising a BBQ, sweets, and great trophies. The kids all left happy with big smiles all round. Well done everyone, time for the awards and onto training for 2019............

Bmx FUNdamentals Week 4

Saturday 22nd was the final week of the BMX Fundamentals programme, and what a success it’s been. We started with kids at grass roots level on week 1 and they all confidently raced today. There was over 35 novice riders in attendance (all under 13 ) and about 30 of our regular racers. The Lord Mayor of Lisburn even heard about it, and called in to help with the medals ! 👏🏼 The event seen novice only races rewarded with hot dogs, certificates, stickers, medals and party bags..... we have been absolutely blown away by the attendance, and especially in the under 6 category with 15 kids !!! We hope to see all these kids again at the track, and hope a BMX bike is top of Santa’s list !!! Thanks to BMX Ulster, Lisburn BMX Club, East Coast Raiders and Belfast City BMX this programme has been a success, and something we all agree to run a couple of times a year! Thanks again to all the parents, and awesome kids who I am sure are buzzing tonight !!! See you all at the track, and hopefully see you racing soon !

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
