BMX Australia in conjunction with Subaru are pleased to deliver to the 2014 Subaru BMX National Championships in Shepparton, Victoria. Now in its 33rd year, the National Championships is the premier event on the national BMX calendar drawing together Australia’s best riders as they compete head-to-head for the coveted National Champions jersey.
This year’s event has attracted in excess of 3,000 entries plus their families and will boost the local economy of Shepparton by an estimated $8.5 million as riders from around Australia compete across the weeklong event. Australia has some of the worlds best riders with the likes of Sam Willoughby, Josh Callan, Anthony Dean, Caroline Buchanan, Lauren Reynolds and Melinda McLeod all competing in Shepparton.
The 2014 Subaru BMX National Championships will become the first National Championships to be streamed online through digital partner Epicentre TV. Three full days of racing capturing some of the most intense BMX action will be broadcast free via the Epicentre TV website and simulcast on the BMX Australia website and smartphone app.
“We’ve trialed live streaming in a very basic format for the National Series this year,” Mr Barry Knight, BMX Australia President said. “However, the live streaming broadcast from the 2014 Subaru BMX National Championships will be something that has never been achieved before at any cycling event in Australia.
“There will be three days of live coverage from beginning to end featuring all classes of riding from the Sprockets through to the Elite finals and includes the Oceania Championships. Multiple cameras will capture all angles of the track as the championships are broadcast globally giving friends and family who are unable to make it to Shepparton the ability to watch it anywhere.
