More than 130 BMX riders took part in Launceston BMX Club's inaugural President's Cup on Saturday.
Ranging in ages from 3-55 and competing in a variety of classes, the event was branded a success by club member David Steward.
"It went off beautifully as far as the running of the event goes," he said.
"At the moment, there's an abundance of youth riders and even in some of the older categories, there's some full gates."

The club secured the 2020 Australian championships before COVID-19 had other plans but there's hope to host the titles in the future, given the track's upgrade for year-round racing, increasing the sport's productivity.
"The appeal of the sport is that it is a family sport," he said.
"Your child wants to pursue a BMX riding career and all of a sudden dad is buying a bike ... and then mum's thinking 'it's not that hard and there are other girls out there, lets give it a go'. We've got families with vans full of bikes and it's for mums, dads and juniors alike."
