WOW. 2020 has been an incredibly hard year for many within our riding community, including our clubs and groups who have tried so hard to keep riding events alive despite constant change in restrictions. At AMX Superstores we are just so proud to be part of such a dedicated community of motorcyclists across Australia.
This year, AMX launched the #ridewithamx project and are actively engaging in clubs and groups Nationally to help support the grass roots community that keep us riding. So far we are supporting more than 49,000+ riders by standing alongside the groups that keep grass roots riding and racing alive.
Although many events were unfortunately postponed or cancelled due to COVID 19 restrictions, we were still able to join forces with the many clubs and groups that were able to remain active and contributed to raffles, charity rides, sponsored club days and events.
AMX Superstores got behind Motorcycle Queensland's Mini Muster with 50+ young riders, we supported ladies groups such as Women 2 Wheels and Motocross Riders Association 'Ladies Come and Try Day' in SA and Girltorque.cc NSW to help promote confidence to enter the sport. AMX supported the recent Rising Motorsports recent MX Camp who give a group of awesome juniors a safe and fun space to get a hold of the sport.
Even with a short season, we supported the Cafnix AMX Superstores 'Race Your Mates' bracket racing classes in SA and recently even teamed up with Townsville Motorcycle Club to support the Hayden Pitman Memorial event and sponsor the AMX Superstores 10-A-Team event in QLD - attracting more than 220 riders!! We've been behind Kilcoy Motocross Club Days and Townsville Enduro Club's Pony Express Enduro rounds and although VIC has had it the hardest, we've kept working with Bacchus Marsh MX to make sure we can be there when they're ready to go!
AMX Superstores have on-boarded some fantastic clubs for 2020 and have some great plans to support even more community based clubs in 2021 with more clubs joining for 2021.
To help promote the #ridewithamx project, we have kicked over our online Community Blog giving a space for our local clubs to promote their clubs and any upcoming events they have going on. AMX wants to thank all the clubs for the opportunity to get behind what they are already doing to keep us all on 2 wheels.
If you have a club event coming up that you want us to Blog about or get behind, please speak with the Store Manager next time you're in store or email us at [email protected] and talk to our Club and Events Coordinator!
