About the Hall Of Fame

The Australian BMX Hall Of Fame recognises champions and legends of our sport. There are three categories for Inductees:

  1. Riders
  2. Officials
  3. Industry

Annual Presentation

An awards ceremony will be held annually with an Awards night dinner. Successful Hall Of Fame Inductees will receive domestic travel and accommodation to attend the awards night, and be Officially Inducted at the awards ceremony.

Tickets for the 2018 Awards Gala dinner are now on sale. Click here to purchase tickets.

Nominating Process

All Nominees regardless of category are considered on merit. Historical results, personal profile, and achievements form the basis for background checking Nominees, who are then put forward to the Australian BMX Hall Of Fame Advisory Board members. This Advisory Board then acts as a Selection Committee to determine worthy inductees based on strict criteria. Nominees will be considered in no particular ranking, and all will be considered on merit.

Members of the public are invited to submit nominations for the following year by the closing deadline of October 30th. Nominations must be made using the Nomination Form and include detailed justification.Complete forms can be sent via email or post.

Exhibition

The Australian BMX Hall Of Fame is managed by the Australian BMX Museum. The Museum is the caretaker of the Hall Of Fame Exhibition currently in the planning stages with key stakeholders. The Australian BMX Museum will feature select displays of historical items from Hall Of Fame Inductees including:

  • Bikes
  • Clothing
  • Trophies
  • Multimedia - videos, images

Where required, replicas of important memorabilia will be created when originals no longer exist. An Official physical location for the Australian BMX Museum and Hall Of Fame is still under investigation. Until then, a mobile (pop-up) exhibition will feature each year at select events when opportunities arise.
