2020 Western Australian bmx freestyle state championships

twitterlinkedinmail

The Western Australian bmx freestyle state championships took place at Bayswater skatepark on a weekend in November that saw record rain fall. The competition was meant to take place on the Saturday but leading up to the day rain started to fall and did not stop. The Saturday was so washed out that a canoe would have been better at the skatepark than a bike. Competition goers were notified that if it did not clear up the competition would be scheduled for the Sunday. Saturday night the rain was still falling at a rate that would fill an ocean. Come Sunday morning the rain had stopped but the weather was still looking less than favorable, but it was all systems go for the 2020 Western Australian bmx freestyle state championships.

Bayswater skatepark was picked as the choice of skateparks due to it scheduled for demolition in the new year. It is making way for a multi level carpark for a new train station, the community has great hope for a good replacement in the future. For 18 years Bayswater skatepark has seen its fair share of radness and hosted its fair number of competitions and it was only fitting that a final competition would be a great way to finish up the life of Bayswater skatepark (it has now had a reprieve and due for demolition in 2022)

Luke Tooze the 2020 Western Australian state champion in the open class.

Clockwise from top left – Albie Livesley rode really well in the under 10’s class. The 7 year old has got some rad skills. 2020 state champion. – Imogen Denison took the win and the championship title in the girls / womans class but only just from her mother Rachel Denison. This was a great competition to see mother and daughter riding together. – Roman Depiazzi is now the current bmx freestyle Western Australian state champion in the beginners class. He is definitely moving forward into the intermediates soon enough if he keeps on progressing. – The 2020 state champion in the intermediates is Ronan McCamish. Such a rad kid who loves bmx and like to do no handers of the beast box at Bayswater.

Clockwise from top left – Justin Edwards has been riding Bayswater skatepark for years, we wonder how many times he has done no handers over the beast? over 35’s state champion. – At 52 Freestyle Now co founder Shaun Jarvis is the over 45’s Western Australian state champion. Double pegin down the kinker ledge. – Ryan Aquilina is a living legend of Bayswater skatepark. He has rode there almost every day over the past 18 years. We are sure he could do this tyre tap on the wall with his eyes shut. Ryan rode so good but just missed a few points and took home the number 2 placing. – Luke Tooze has been on a mission this past year. Winning the Scarborough beach bmx bowl battle only a few weeks before winning the Western Australian bmx freestyle state championships. This 720 over the beast was super clean and Luke took the well deserving state championship.

BMX freestyle skatepark is now an official Olympic sport. It was meant to be rolling in the 2020 Olympics but due to world events it’s hoped that the Olympics will run in 2021. This was the second Western Australian state championships that Freestyle Now has hosted (2019 being the first). There were a good number of riders who entered the competition which catered for many ages and skill levels. Under 10’s, Girls /womans, beginners, intermediates, over 35’s, over 45’s and the open class. The level of riding is always growing and it was good to see the level of riding in the under 10’s. In the girls/womans it was most awesome to have daughter and mother take out the 1st and 2nd places, big thanks and congratulations to Imogen and Rachel Denison. We are unsure if that has ever happened in a bmx competition before.

There were lots of different styles of riding going down over the different classes, some riders going wide open and some riders being super technical along with a mix between them all. All up it was a great representation of the riding that is currently taking place in Western Australia. The riding in the groups was all really close. Each competitor had two runs with only their best run being taken into account for their points. A big congratulation to all the riders who entered and especially to the riders who took out the number 1 positions. Freestyle Now hopes to roll out the 2021 Western Australian state championships soon.

We would like to thank our supporters for the 2020 Western Australian BMX freestyle state championships, Colony BMXLocal BMX, and Aus Cycling.

It was a two day event with stunt shows taking place on Saturday and Sunday. It was an awesome set up with a great location for Freestyle Now to set up on and right next to the race track. Freestyle Now squad members Shaun Jarvis, Dylan Schmidt and David Pinelli along with new recruits squad member Taj Hamilton invited bmx radster Josh Garwood to join in to help roll out the rad. The Saturday was a nice fine day with the sun shining brightly with the crowds were loving it and getting into the bmx stunt shows with great crowd interaction.
