Internationally they are already Googling Batemans Bay as Leah Hearne of the Batemans Bay BMXers has developed a solid fan base following her appearance at the USA 2017 world championships representing Australia. Leah attended the famous Rock Hill track, one of the few Olympic-like tracks in the USA designed by inspiration from the Beijing BMX track of 2008. It was a tremendous opportunity for here as the 2017 UCI World Championships hosted an over 3,300 riders with an estimated 300 professional athletes from over 40 countries, over the course of 5 event days. And in the middle of it all was Batemans Bay's Leah Hearne.
There is no doubt that the May 27th BMX Batemans Bay Open event will bring lots of new attention to the area and also benefit our local accommodation providers and businesses. Events like this require strong community and business house support and the BMX Batemans Bay crew have that in spades.
