club then known as Pegasus BMX club was formed at the height of the BMX craze
of the 80’s to hold the 1984 Qantas Australian BMX Titles. This event was one
of the first times an Australian event had pro riders come over from the USA to
compete with the Americans Clint Miller and Gary Ellis taking out 1st
and 2nd in the event. Byford BMXClub is one of the oldest clubs in WA
and during its time folded in the mid 90’s, re-opening in the late 90’s as BMX
was on the rise with the announcement that BMX would be included in the 2008
In the early
2000’s the track was raced regularly by future Olympian BMX rider Khalen Young.
Khalen raced on Friday nights at Byford BMX before eventually heading to the
USA for an outstanding professional BMX career which included rankings as high
as World Number 2 and even more prestigious in 2009 at the height of his career
he was the number 1 professional ranked rider in the USA.
