First Australian BMX High Performance Squad

Cycling Australia and BMX Australia have announced the 11 cyclists selected as members of the inaugural BMX High Performance Program (BMX HPP).

"The partnership between Cycling Australia and BMX Australia means elite level BMX has now come under the current high performance programs section within Cycling Australia," said Graham Fredericks, CEO of Cycling Australia. "This means it will benefit from the management, direction and administration support already established for our highly successful road, track, mountain bike and disability programs."

The BMX HPP caters for athletes in the elite and junior elite categories and predominantly for the '20 inch' class. "This is an Australian Sports Commission funded program with the primary aim of providing the best possible training and competition opportunities for athletes to help them deliver medal winning performances at the Olympic Games in 2008 and 2012," said Mr Fredericks. "In other years the athletes will focus on World Championships competition.

Newly appointed National BMX Coach, Sean Dwight, will be responsible for the planning, day to day management and implementation of the BMX HPP.
