Cycle Derby hosted the BMX Nationals event on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th April and it was a huge success, Katapult designed all the advertising materials which consisted of posters and postcards, t-shirts and hoodies.

The event was covered on BBC television and radio and by the local Derby Evening Telegraph. All of the coverage was incredibly positive and reflected the amazingly hard work put in not only by Cycle Derby staff but also by the mums and dads from the club who spent 16 hour days ensuring everyone had a great time.

Kelvin Batey, British number one and Olympic qualifier said ‚Äúthis is the best BMX event I have ever been to, the crowds are amazing.”

Uncle Buck, a legend in the BMX world and compere at all the major events said “I haven’t seen crowds like this since the 80′s, this is what BMX really needs”.

Mark Smith from Cycle Derby said “I personally was very proud to be part of such a spectacular event. In total we had over 480 riders taking part; head counts and car parking suggested over 6000 people watched over the 2 days. So many people came up to me asking for more information on not only BMX but other cycling activities as well. What was even better was they were all families looking to cycle together. In my humble opinion events like this are vital in supporting the promotion of cycling.”
