Byford BMX Club was founded in the early 1980’s at Briggs Park Oval in Byford. The club, then known as Pegasus BMX Club, was formed at the height of the BMX craze of the 80’s to hold the 1984 Qantas Australian BMX Titles. This event was one of the first times an Australian event had pro riders come over from the USA to compete with the Americans Clint Miller and Gary Ellis taking out 1st and 2nd in the event. Byford BMX Club is one of the oldest clubs in WA and during its time folded in the mid 90’s, re-opening in the late 90’s as BMX was on the rise with the announcement that BMX would be included in the 2008 Olympics.
In the early 2000’s the track was raced regularly by future Olympian BMX rider Khalen Young. Khalen raced on Friday nights at Byford BMX before eventually heading to the USA for an outstanding professional BMX career which included rankings as high as World Number 2 and even more prestigious in 2009 at the height of his career he was the number 1 professional ranked rider in the USA.
