Greater Shepparton City Council is excited to be announced host of the 2021 Victorian State BMX Championships later this year.
Greater Shepparton has a strong relationship and reputation of hosting successful state, national and international BMX events within the Shepparton Cycling and BMX precinct including the 2019 BMX National Championships and the 2020 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup in February last year.
BMX racers from across the state and interstate will make their way to Greater Shepparton to compete from October 8 – 10 this year, attracting over 1500 participants, officials, families and visitors for the three day event injecting in excess of $1 million into our local economy.
Greater Shepparton City Council Mayor Councillor Kim O’Keeffe said the region continued to lead way as the sporting event capital.
“Our region excels in many sports and BMX and cycling is one of the many we enjoy returning to our region, seeing athletes and visitors fill our streets, staying in our accommodation venues and visiting our local businesses, cafes, retail shops, attractions and experiencing our services,” Cr O’Keeffe said.
“This is a great opportunity for our locals to see and compete against some of the states’ and nation’s best riders, at a world-class facility right in their own backyard
“As we continue to secure these major events in our region it only strengthens our status as the regional sporting event capital of Australia and Council will continue to support the facilities and groups that assist in attracting these events which bring great visitor numbers to our region and support our local visitor economy.”
