It may be the Picnic Day long weekend in the NT but there’ll be little to no relaxation on Sunday as 150 riders head to Big Rivers BMX in Katherine for Round 4 of the 2021 HutSix Northern Territory BMX Series.
As we head to the business end of the NT’s biggest BMX Series to date, Auscycling NT caught up with NT BMX Team Coach and local BMX legend Nicky Thomson for the lowdown on what visiting riders can expect from the days racing.
“Look out for the potential of a merged 14-15 class that will see all but one of the NT BMX squad members compete in the same race. This will be the one to watch for emerging talent with Satellite City’s Luke holder competing with Nhulunbuy BMX’s Zane Henderson and brother and sister duo Mathew and Lauren Winter” said Thomson.
Thomson also added some sound advice for riders new to the Big Rivers Track, “Many riders have come unstuck with the fast-moving track and the tight first corner so riders should be aware of those and also potential cross winds”.
As the Series gets set to pass the halfway stage with remaining rounds in Nhulunbuy, Barkly and Red Centre still to come, the leader board is starting to take shape.

AusCycling NT looks forward to welcoming all riders and BMX fans to Katherine for Round 4 of the 2021 HutSix Northern Territory BMX Series this weekend.
