BMXA and MTBA recently signed a long-awaited agreement to allow cross membership.
MTBA members with more than three months of life left on their membership can now join BMXA directly without joining a BMXA-affiliated club and pay AUS$36. Similarly BMXA members with more than three months on their membership can remain a member of their BMX club but get a full MTBA membership for the same cost.
"This arrangement completes the triangle of discounted memberships between all the competition cycling disciplines and in particular between the 'dirt' disciplines of BMX and MTB," said Tony Scott, Executive Officer for MTBA. "These arrangements will now allow greater access for BMX riders to contest MTB events in a completely seamless manner as if they were full cost MTBA members (and vise versa) and reflects an arrangement MTBA has had for the last three years with the parent body Cycling Australia."
Regarding MTBA and BMXA, Scott said, "We have a lot in common especially at the 4X and BMX interface." He hopes the arrangement will strengthen the 'dirt' cycling disciplines".
