Big numbers at our Come and Try Day

Thanks to everyone that turned out to our first Come and Try BMX Racing Day – the event was such a hit with the northern beaches community that we ran out of sign on forms and ran the BBQ dry.

Everyone had a great time and our best guess is that over 100 future BMX stars turned up to join in the fun.

Manly Daily front cover – A Wheely Good Time

A big thanks to the editors of the Manly Daily for coming out to the track recently and taking some photos of the action at our gates training last Thursday night.  And, congratulations to Byron Best for making the highly prized front cover.

Who wants to be a BMX champion?

Ok, so now we have an awesome track and Club racing is on every month. What we need now is a new generation of champions to put Manly on the national racing map again.

How are we going to achieve that? Well, Pierre and Zach will start regular BMX racing coaching sessions on Tuesdays from 5.30 til 6.30 pm. This will cover all aspect of BMX riding from, balancing and pedaling technique all the way to jumping, manualing and race strategy.

The first coaching sessions will take place on Tuesday 7th February 2017.  The cost is $10 per rider. Please book your spot by emailing admin@manlywarringahbmx.com.au, because numbers are limited and bring cash to the track.

Please note, Pierre and Zach are both accredited BMX Australia coaches and First Aid certificate holders. As such, all coaching sessions are covered by BMX Australia insurance for registered members.

A great start to club racing in January

The sun was shining and the track was in good condition for our first club race of the year held yesterday, Saturday the 28th January.  It was pretty warm out there, but everyone had a great time and we had some great racing.

We had a good group of riders, both young and young at heart taking on the track, and each other, and a good contingent of first timers as well.

A special thanks goes out to everyone who was able to help out on the day, from helping prepare the track for racing, to manning the BBQ, helping during racing itself and cleaning up afterward.  Also a special thanks go to the riders from Sydney BMX Club who made the journey to race at Manly as well.

The next club race is on Saturday the 18th February  and we look forward to seeing you all there.  In the meantime, regular Thursday gates nights will be held at the track, and keep an eye on Facebook for other times we’ll be at the track as well.

 

Manly Warringah BMX AGM and Seasons Greetings!

A big Thank You to everyone who came at the AGM at the Belrose Hotel on the 16th February.  It was the perfect way to finish the year talking all things BMX around a few drinks.

Let’s get the admin stuff out of the way though. We now officially have a new Board and Committee for 2017.

Board:

  • Pierre Lodygensky
  • Karl Brown
  • Zach Webb

Committee:

  • Pierre Lodygensky (President)
  • Karl Brown (Secretary)
  • Zach Webb (Coaching Manager)
  • Sam Brown (Treasurer and Canteen Manager)
  • Philip Best (general committee member)

It was also a great opportunity to discuss the future of the club in 2017, including track upgrades, the Open, Clubbies, coaching and plenty more.

Everyone had some great ideas to grow the club and make it better, and it would be hard to list them all in here. But with the involvement of everyone on board, 2017 already looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun!

There is only one last thing to say, have a great time for Christmas! And see you see next Year !

– Update June 2017 –

It is with regret that we say goodbye to Ko Wang from the Manly Warringah BMX board.  Ko was elected as a committee member at the beginning of 2017 and performed the duties of Track Manager.  Ko has worked tirelessly throughout the past year to keep the track maintained and we thank him for his efforts.  We hope to see Ko and his kids around at the Open events throughout the season.

It’s also a pleasure to welcome Philip Best to the committee.  Philip was invited by the Board to join the committee and accepted.  Phil brings a great level of enthusiasm and positive energy to the club and we look forward to sharing the club’s successes with him in the future.

Interclub meet goes off with a bang… Manly Warringah, LMX & Hawkesbury BMX clubs join up for great racing!

Today was a brilliant start to the HLM Interclub Series at the Manly Warringah BMX track at Terrey Hills.  Great racing was had by all and a lot of people got to try out the new track.

Thanks to to everyone who helped out to make this all happen – we’re really happy to be back in business and look forward to the next club race held at the track in the near future.
