BMX riders and their families flocked to the BMX Fun Day at Angmering’s BMX Track and Skate Park on Sunday, September 9 to ‘tear up the track’ and to watch international free style BMX rider GT Bicycles’ Jay Cowley and a national race team in action.
Riders aged four upwards showed off their riding skills when they competed in the event in Mayflower Way, Angmering, for a chance to win an awesome BMX bike. There were also trophies and medals for everyone taking part.
Parish Council chairman John Oldfield said: “Thank you to everyone who came to the event and to the riders who competed – we saw some amazing talent and it was a fantastic family day out.”
Jay Cowley was joined by Angmering BMX rider Jay Domin, who also rode with him at the last Angmering BMX Promotional Open Day in September 2015.
BMX Track Specialist Steve Jenks, who built the BMX Track in Mayflower Park and hosted the 2015 event, was back as event organiser. Sunday’s event also featured National Commentator Tony Knot.
The national race team and Jay Cowley wowed the crowds with their BMX skills at 11.30am before racing kicked off at 1pm, followed by a dirt jumping competition. Judges were Jay Cowley and Dangerous Dave. Trophies or medals were awarded to the top three competitors.
