Members of BMXNSW, BMXNZ and BMXA,
We find ourselves still in difficult times and we hope that the members of BMXNSW, BMXNZ and BMXA are staying safe and practicing all the required health directives so we can all work towards containing and controlling the COVID-19 pandemic that is currently affecting not only both our Countries but so many others worldwide.
Due to the current conditions, travel restrictions and quarantine requirements in place between Australia and New Zealand and with no sign of this changing in the near future, both BMXNSW and BMXNZ Associations find ourselves with no alternative but to cancel the New Zealand Leg of the Trans-Tasman Test Team event (Mighty 11s) set down for October 2020.
We believe it is in the best interests of the parents, riders and Associations to make a call on this now, so there is no or minimised effect on those involved, as we anticipate no likely change in these Trans-Tasman restrictions for 3-6 months as per the Government communications.
Both BMXNSW and BMXNZ make this decision with a heavy heart and we understand and feel the disappointment for the riders and their families, but we also must consider the health and safety of the riders first and foremost.
What is important at this time is the members and families of BMXNSW, BMXNZ and BMXA take care, stay safe and focus on the required health directives so we can beat this pandemic and then we can refocus back to be putting on great events and experiences for our members.
Board of BMXNSW and Board of BMXNZ
