Mackay's BMX racing scene is buzzing with excitement as two exceptional brothers from the Mackay and District BMX Club, Dylan Secher and Beau Secher, prepare to represent Team Australia at the UCI BMX Racing World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland.

Meanwhile, his older brother, Dylan Secher, will be taking on the challenge in two classes: the highly competitive 12-year-old boys' category and the Cruiser 12 and under class. Dylan's impressive 8th ranking in Australia for the 12-year-old boys reflects his dedication and commitment to the sport.

The local BMX club expressed their admiration for the brothers' hard work and achievements, stating, "Watching these young athletes grow and excel in their passion for BMX racing has been truly inspiring.

“We are immensely proud of Dylan and Beau and wish them the best of luck at the UCI BMX Racing World Championships.
