This event, which runs from May 21 to September, consists of four rounds, with a round held in Tom Price, Port Hedland, Karratha and Newman.
The event consists of 25 classes, from three-year-old mini wheelers to adult men’s and women’s races.
Medals are presented to the top three riders in each class, with the top eight riders of the series winners announced after the final round at the Newman East Pilbara BMX club.
All children under eight receive a participation medal after each round.
