Australia's BMX scene is set to explode in Melbourne this weekend as Cycling Australia hosts the inaugural Freestyle BMX Nationals at Rampfest from 24-25 November 2018. Freestyle BMX is set to make its Olympic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and the event format sees cyclists perform a series of tricks during their ‘1 minute run’ across a ramp-filled course. Riders’ tricks are judged based on difficulty, originality, style and execution.
The Freestyle BMX Nationals will be the first opportunity for Australian riders to earn an official National Ranking, a significant move for the sport domestically ahead of the Tokyo Games. Australia currently boast some of the best riders in the world, the inaugural competition will pit a wave of professionals against keen locals and enthusiasts all striving for the coveted green and gold jersey.
Sydney’s Brandon Loupos, fresh from his bronze-medal performance at the 2018 UCI Urban World Championships in Chengdu, China last weekend will headline the Nationals. “I’m excited to come back from Worlds and hopefully put an exclamation point on the first ever nationals in Australia and be that number one Australian,” said Loupos.
Melbourne's Jake Wallwork, who claimed his maiden World Cup win in China last month and finished fourth at the World Championships, is thrilled for the first National Championship at his

The second annual Vans BMX Pro Cup series kicked off in Five Dock, Australia yesterday as 47 of the world’s leading men and women BMX park terrain riders rallied for the series’ first Pro Tour event of the season. Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible on two wheels, 2017’s Vans BMX Pro Cup World Champion Larry Edgar’s speed defying runs granted him the Australia Pro Cup victory, taking first place for carrying out colossal trick combinations that awed the crowd at the historical Five Dock Skatepark.
“I’m stoked to be back, this event is such a good time,” proclaims first place winner, Larry Edgar. “Riding with all my friends and watching everyone push the limits of their riding is so fun.”
What an intense day! The first stop of the 2018 edition of the Vans BMX Pro Cup brought us a lot of emotions. Sydney was not as sunny as the legend says and after rescheduling the women competition because of the rain we've been scared the weather would not let the event go until the end. Fortunately Mother Nature was on the ride side and we've been able to go through a great women competition, the men semi-finals and finals regrouping some of the best riders of the world.
Ryan Saville who arrived first during the Regional Qualifier yesterday was the favorite of the crowd and offered a great show. He's not the only one, the Australian audience enjoyed a show of great quality, the riders were in an amazing shape and always surprised the crowd. The biggest surprise was probably when Sergio Layos' bike landed in the audience... Oopsie!
Kevin Peraza's superman left everyone speechless, we've been really impressed by the resistance of Brandon Loupos after his massive crash at the end of the Best Trick contest. The australian Alex Hiam was in a great shape, he managed to arrive 2nd for the best trick and 3rd for the Pro Cup. At the end of the day Nina Buitrago won the best trick and Teresa Azcoaga won the first stop of the Pro Cup. For the men the local Jason Watts won the best trick and the winner of the 2017 edition, Larry Edgar won the very first stop of this 2018 edition.
