  1. Hi Guys So I'm looking for downhill helmets for my 2 boys. I was specifically looking at the O'neal helmets as they have those easy snap fasteners that work with magnets, and of course GM rides with them. These will be used for BMX racing. I'm just fed up with the heavy MX helmets that are available to us here in Jo'burg. My one boy currently rides with a 100% Aircraft but even these aren't available in SA anymore and he cracked his peak a couple weeks ago. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Mark
  2. No one riding BMX anymore???
  3. Looking for things to do with the kids over the long weekend? Visit the new Bike Park at Hazendal, with a pump track, skills trail, y-bike track, flow trail and 5km cross-country trail there is something for everyone, even Mum! The kids will love you for it - it may just end up as their favourite place to be! Make a day of it, bring a picnic* (*own picnics allowed until the new facilities open in October). https://www.facebook.com/hazendalwine/videos/10156304709276119/?t=37
  4. https://web.facebook.com/events/110474199763961/ Haven't seen much discussion on this here on the hub - Seeing as it is a week away thought I'd post a reminder. Should be good, and first time it is in the Cape. http://lwmag.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/DOTD-2018.jpg
  5. Being an outdoor event weather is a huge factor and in the past we have had some bad luck with wind and rain, despite being in the heat of summer. This year the rain teased us with a few sprinkles, but it was just enough to wet the jumps nicely and helped settle the dust which was a welcome treat during the drought in the Cape! Each year the event grows with more and more huge names coming out and this year was no exception. The crowd were spoiled to the best tricks Africa has ever seen! Double flips, 1080, flip double whip and flip whip to barspin were just a few of the bangers the boys threw down. Declan Brooks managed to walk away with the BMX 1st place and Nick "Tricky Nicky" Clarke managed to defend his title and won himself the top spot in MTB. With the wind and rain working in our favour it was the first year in a while that each heat had a full run and then it was time for the grand finale, best trick on the massive trick jump. A few riders were pretty beat up after their runs and opted to take it easy, but in BMX Tom Isted was still hungry and absolutely destroyed it! Another double flip from him and a textbook flip superman, but what earned him the BMX title was a double barrel roll. On the MTB's Sam Reynolds was spinning a huge cork 720, but unfortunately didn't manage to stick it. Lukas Skiold is from where they make tech master riders in Sweden and didn't disappoint and took the MTB best trick with a flip whip to barspin! Once again, such an awesome evening in Hout Bay's bowl, everyone left in high spirits after an absolutely amazing evening!

  6. The world's best MTB & BMX riders made their way to Cape Town for Africa's biggest dirt jump competition, The Night Harvest. The more relaxed jam style format makes this one of the most fun events for the riders and more fun means more crazy tricks than your brain can cope with! Click here to view the article
  7. Are there any good places to buy a new BMX in SA? Looking for brands like wethepeople, Cult or Jet but also open to other recomendations. It won't be for racing, but still looking for something reasonably light to cruise the street and maybe with pegs as well. Something like this: https://www.sourcebmx.com/en/Jet-BMX-Jet-Generate-BMX-Bike/m-32332.aspx

  10. Two of KwaZulu-Natal’s great junior BMX enthusiasts, Manqoba Madida and Dylan Eggar, recently took part in a BMX training camp identifying young talent from around the world, at the UCI World Cycling Centre (WCC) in Switzerland from 10-22 October. Click here to view the article
  11. Manqoba Madida (left) and Dylan Eggar (right) took part in a BMX training camp identifying young talent around the world at the World Cycling Centre in Aigle, Switzerland from 10-22 October. “Everything went very well for us over there,” said Madida. “We had such great times. We did our best and they enjoyed having us there,” he added. Madida also mentioned that he hoped he had made everyone else back home happy and proud. On the experience as a whole, Madida said: “The experience was amazing. The way that they live there – what they do, eat, all of it. The whole experience made being away from home, friends and family much easier.” WCC Coach Thomas Allier mentioned in Madida’s report that was very strong, and has the potential and ability to thrive one day at Elite level. Eggar said: “To start off I was really nervous about this whole trip, but inside I was always excited. I got to make friends with people from all over the world and I learned new things everyday I was there. It was awesome!” He also mentioned that is now able to push himself harder on the track. “I pushed my self so far out of my comfort zone and it ended up improving my overall performance on the track and in the gym,” he said. Eggar hopes to travel more next year, and take part in American and European races. “I want to keep pushing myself and never give up. Next year is my year,” he concluded. Feedback from Eggar’s report was that he showed improvements from when he had first arrived, and has a remarkable ability to rider well under pressure. KZN Cycling Development Officer and BMX Coach, Tyrone Johns mentioned that he was incredibly proud of the young athletes, and thanked all involved for the continued support.
  12. Rules are not what BMX is about. And, when you begin to subscribe to an idea that you’re supposed to do this or that while riding your bike, you’re missing the whole idea...taking a kicker ramp into the streets is a taboo in the world of BMX, but that’s exactly the point.

  14. Johns, who constantly looks out on the UCI website for chances to better his BMX coaching skills, saw the opportunity to apply for the course, into which he was accepted. “Funding in order to go and do it was the next thing,” said Johns. “I had heard that Olympic Solidarity pay for the developing countries to have coaches and athletes further their skills and techniques, so I applied,” he added. KwaZulu-Natal Cycling's Development Officer Tyrone Johns is at the UCI World Cycling Centre in Switzerland to take part in a UCI Level 3 BMX Coaching Diploma Course. Photo: Supplied Johns explained the detailed processes of approval, through Cycling South Africa, SASCOC, and Olympic Solidarity International. Johns was awarded a 100% scholarship to the programme.“I’m very honoured that I am able to do this. The promise is that I give back to my country, my kids, and the whole BMX community,” he said. Whilst in Switzerland, Johns also hopes to seek out the possibility of running courses and lectures when back home. “Instead of sending people from the UCI to South Africa, I’m going to see what I need to do in order to become that UCI person,” he said. Earlier this year, Johns was selected and awarded a contract to work in South Korea for a month and a half. “They had the funding, the kids, but no idea what to do. I didn’t need to coach, however, I needed to provide the programme that could assist them in order to put in place the procedures that I have already established here in KZN. It was excellent, the people there are great, and I had such a good time and learnt a lot,” he said. For Johns, his selection was based on his work with the success of his development programme in KwaZulu-Natal. After achieving his Diploma, Johns will then be recognised as the highest qualified BMX Coach in South Africa. “I can’t wait to give back to the community,” he added.

  16. As the weekend drew to a close, so did a fantastic event of action-packed BMX racing, at the BMX National Age Group (NAG) Series and South African National BMX Championships, which took place at Giba Gorge Park on Saturday 1 October, and the African Continental BMX Championships at the same venue on Sunday 2 October.

  17. Although rain was predicted, the weather played the game on Saturday, and, despite intermittent spouts of drizzle, the warm KwaZulu-Natal sunshine shone through the clouds, and kept the cold away. Dylan Eggar won the Junior Men's race at the 2016 African Continental BMX Championships on Sunday 2 October. Photo: Andrew McFadden/BOOGS Photography Kita Uys, who dominated the 11-13 Girl’s category, was chuffed with her performance on Saturday. “The competition was tough, but I tried my best and did quite well. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s racing as well, I’m going to try my best for similar results,” she said. KwaZulu-Natal’s Manqoba Madida said: “Today has been going so great so far, I’ve been so happy to be racing such a big event. I just raced my final now and came fourth, but that’s because I got squished in the first straight, but it doesn’t matter” he laughed. The African Continental BMX Championships welcomed riders from Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa. Kyle Dodd defended and won both Elite Men's titles at the 2016 South African National BMX Championships and the African Continental BMX Championships at Giba Gorge on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 October. Photo: Andrew McFadden/BOOGS Photography South Africa’s Kyle Dodd took the National and Continental titles in the Elite Men’s races. “The morning went well, we were just hoping that the weather would play its part, because rain and racing doesn’t quite go together. I had good confidence going into SA Champs in the afternoon,” he said. Dodd mentioned that staying Elite One meant a lot to him, and to get it the fourth time in a row meant even more. “It does make it harder each year to try and retain it though, because there are so many great guys coming through the ranks, so there’s a lot of pressure. Its good pressure though, it keeps me on my toes and keeps me going,” he added. Saturday night’s rains and Sunday’s winds proved to be a little more challenging for the riders, but nothing that they couldn’t handle on the track. “After the rain last night, the track was very wet this morning and so we could only start on the small hill. I didn’t let it affect me. I just wanted to stay strong and smooth. The wind today was just crazy. There were headwinds and crosswinds but us athletes have to take it in our stride and deal with it and carry on racing to the best of our ability,” said Dodd. South African National and African Continental Champion in the 14 & Over Girl’s category, Georgie Grassie has been into cycling for over eight years. “I think it’s because I’m an extreme sports and adrenaline junkie like my dad. I love riding motorbikes, and I do a lot of different types of cycling, but BMX is my favourite,” she said. Pietermaritzburg's Anele Ndlovu powered to third place at the 2016 South African National BMX Championships at Giba Gorge Park on Saturday 1 October. Photo: Andrew McFadden/BOOGS Photography The Crawford North Coast pupil offered advice for other young girls looking to try out the discipline of BMX: “You can’t get scared. There is a big chance of you falling, but if you are into BMX then you can’t care about it, you just have to do it. Once you start, you get really into it, and you just cannot stop, just take care.” Day two was an excellent one for Durban rider Dylan Eggar, who claimed the top honours in the Junior Men’s race, ahead of Tyler Klumper (second) and Manqoba Madida (third). “Yesterday I was feeling good the whole day and just made a silly mistake on the first turn, but for the final in African Champs I was focused. I worried about nothing else but my own race,” he added. Cycling South Africa President, William Newman said: “When I arrived and saw all of the young girls and boys lining up to do their motos, I thought, ‘wow, cycling is in a very good space.’ We have a lot of talent. It shows here because we have a lot of young girls and boys participating in the sport, and BMX is the best way to teach them about and get them involved in cycling. The finals were also so exciting. Sisa Thwalo from the Velokhaya Cycling Academy puts in strong focus in his 10 Boys race at the 2016 South African National BMX Championships at Giba Gorge Park on Saturday 1 October. Photo: Andrew McFadden/BOOGS Photography “Our challenge now is to ensure that we have BMX in all nine provinces, and active. We would also like to see more African nations taking part in the Continental Championships, but to have four nations is a great stepping stone.” He also mentioned how impressed he was with the number of participants, the support from the parents, and the support and assistance from the Department of Sport and Recreations and sponsors.

  18. The 2016 African Continental BMX Championships is taking place at Giba Gorge Park in KwaZulu-Natal on Sunday 2 October.

  19. Team Faith Rockstar rider, Alex Limberg looks forward to the action that is African Continental BMX Championships, taking place at Giba Gorge Park on Sunday 2 October. Photo: Cycling SA “I'm looking forward to African Continental Champs as I've been putting in lots of work,” said Limberg. “After my performance last year I'm hoping to improve, and maybe win,” he added. Limberg’s goals set this year include improving his mind-set when riding internationally and at home. He also hopes to become South African National BMX Champion, and hit a double whammy when he takes on the last two rounds of the National Age Group Series as well. The Team Faith Rockstar rider won his first National event last year when he took first prize in the Elite Men’s category at rounds four, five and six of the National Age Group Series at Alexandra Park in July. The African Continental Championships have so far seen confirmed entries from Zimbabwe and Namibia. Cycling South Africa’s BMX Commission Director, Margot Gerber said: “All of the preparations are going well, and everything is coming along nicely – we are just hoping for good weather.” KwaZulu-Natal has been greeted with some much-needed rain over the past few weekends, and race organisers hope that it plays fair for competition time. Giba Gorge is a favourite among many South African BMX enthusiasts, and the only track in Africa with a BMX Supercross track and 8m start gate. The venue hosted both the African Continental and South African National BMX Championships in 2014.

  22. Hey lads, So this weekend I decided to commence the resurrection operation on my (as far as i know) 1980-something bmx which i bought 10 years back in Cape Town. It came with some pretty kick ass components, all of which hail from the great Japan.
  23. Dodd (22) kicks off with the Seeding Runs of the Men’s BMX event on Wednesday 17 August at 14:34 (local time), and 19:34 (SA time). The event takes place at the Olympic BMX Centre in Rio de Janeiro. The Quarter Finals take place the following day, Thursday 18 August at 13:51 (local time)/18:51 (SA time). The Semi Finals and Finals both take place on Friday 19 August from 13:38 (local time)/18:38 (SA time). South Africa’s Kyle Dodd has arrived in Brazil and has begun his final preparations for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Dodd will be competing in the BMX discipline from Wednesday 17 August. Photo: supplied. Three-time SA National Elite Men’s BMX Champion, who has marked his selection into the 2016 Rio Olympic Games National Team as a major career highlight, said: “The vibe is unreal in this place. To be surrounded by so many countries with world-class athletes is absolutely amazing. I'm just taking everything in and learning step by step, but the Olympic Games is huge and I quite like being a part of it.”The Glenanda local mentioned that he feels confident at the way practice has been going for him. “What I love most about the schedule is that I have so much time to get the whole track dialled then rather rush and risk injury,” he added. “I'm definitely excited to get racing underway and just go out there firstly to make my country proud (especially my family as they have come all this way to watch), my coach and most importantly, myself. All I can do is my best and leave it all on the track,” he concluded. You can watch the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Men’s BMX and MTB on DSTV SuperSport at the following viewing times: BMX Schedule: Wednesday 17 August (18:25): Men & Women’s Seeding Run Session 1 – SS4 Wednesday 17 August (19:30): Men & Women's Seeding Run Session 2 – SS6 Thursday 18 August (18:25): Men QFs – SS6 Friday 19 August (18:25): Men & Women's SFs – SS6 Friday 19 August (20:00): Men & Women's Finals – SS6

Dodd will be competing in the BMX discipline from Wednesday 17 August, while Reid and Hatherly will tackle the Mountain Bike Cross-country race on the final day of the three-week sporting spectacular, on Sunday 21 August.
