local skatepark. “It is really good to have a nationals, and a ranking,” said Wallwork. “It is definitely a great thing for the sport because now we have bigger contests in Australia.”
Gold Coast's Kyle Baldock, who claimed silver at the Sydney X-Games in October, is keen to show his stuff and also see the new generation of Australian BMX riders in action. “I just can’t wait to show the fans what we have to offer, we expect so many riders to be there and any of them could be the next Olympic or World Champion,” said Baldock.
Rampfest locals Alec Danelutti and Liam Quinlivan are both for nationals to be held at their home park. Whilst not riding due to injury, Sunbury’s Alec Danelutti was still looking forward to the event, “I’m super excited about Nationals, and to have it at my home park ... It is so sick to actually have a big contest coming here, and we are hoping for a good turn out and everyone gets down for the competition.” Quinlivan is hoping a home field advantage plays in his favour against the world’s best. “I’m feeling really good, I’ve put in a lot of work this year, I’m feeling fit I’m feeling strong, I know most of these lines and I know what I can do so hopefully I bring fire to this competition,” said Quinlivan.
Rampfest Indoor Skate Park is in Braybrook in Melbourne's Inner West and has been helping riders, skaters & scooter’s get rad on ramps since 2008.
The Freestyle BMX National Championships will be contested on Sunday 25 November, with Saturday to feature a warm up competition.
