2008 saw BMX racing enter the Olympics for the first time as a permanent sport. This was after many years of young BMXers succeeding in alternate cycling disciplines after they had exhausted all avenues in BMX. The Media attention and captivated audiences from the Beijing and London Olympics has now seen a massive rise in demand for BMX facilities, as more youth are drawn to BMX racing as their new sport. Add this to the fact that BMX tracks are being used as during & after school sporting facilities, anti crime strategies and family recreational venues. The humble BMX track presents itself as a genuine community facility.
With regulations relating to their design and specific knowledge required during their construction, a BMX track can only be designed and constructed by those with experience in this type of facility. At Dirtz we have been responsible for the designing, building and re-building of competitive and recreational BMX tracks throughout Australia and Asia, including all of the current international standard tracks within Australia.
