WHILE the World Cup events were cancelled, riders competing in the BMX NSW State Series at the Bathurst BMX park finished their events, with competitors singing the praises of the track.
Thirteen-years boys NSW State Series champion, Cooper Sellars said he loved the track after placing first in the state in his age group.
Cooper who has been all through Queensland and down to Victoria for competitions, said Bathurst was one of his favourite tracks.
"Its awesome, I love it. The second straight isn't as big now, before it was huge, but now it's easier to jump.
"The berms (corners) are also really grippy."
"The gates are awesome; they are barrel gates, which means they are really fast," he said.
He rated the track a "7/10" and said it is "one of the best he's been on."
Paula Griffiths, from Newcastle, was in Bathurst to watch a family friend, Alex Cameron, competing in the state titles.
She too was impressed with what she saw.
"It's a great track, everything has been great except for the weather, but what can you do?" she said.
Mrs Griffiths said she has but heavily involved in BMX racing for years; her son use to race and they still love the sport.
Martijn Jaspers, the head trainer/coach for Netherlands based Team Oegema, was also impressed with the track.
"The track is fine, really good.
"It's just the wind coming from the side makes it hard because you cant control the front wheel.
"The track was a good raceable track, and the rain doesn't affect us. It was only the wind which was an issue."
