Just weeks after the successful launch of Ratoath BMX track in Co Meath, Dubliners now have a facility of their own following the opening of the Cherry Orchard indoor BMX track.
The facility, which is contained in a large warehouse in Cherry Orchard industrial estate beside Ballyfermot in west Dublin, has already been christened with a great day’s racing.
Kids from the age of five years to those well into the veteran stages of their twenty-inch careers took to the track for a thrilling meeting.
The launch of the new facility comes at a time of significant resurgence in BMX in Ireland.
The track in Ratoath – which is outdoor and more challenging than Cherry Orchard – has drawn huge crowds since it opened before Christmas.
It also appears that Ireland may have a BMX rider at the London Olympics, in the shape of Kelvin Batey. His qualification for London would undoubtedly raise the profile of BMX racing here and add to its stock rising even further.
Cycling Ireland has established a BMX commission and Eamonn Wyer of Ratoath BMX club is hopeful of bringing a young team to the UCI BMX World Championships in the UK in May.
The Cherry Orchard track’s owner, Limerick businessman and former road cyclist Liam Collins told stickybottle interest has been “massive” since word began spreading that the track was about to open.
He plans to develop a racing league on Friday nights, with leagues to be held over periods of months.
The track will also be open for group bookings at other times and will also offer walk-in sessions where riders can simply turn up unannounced and pay a small fee to use the track.
Collins has begun working with Ratoath BMX to develop his own track. Former BMX professional Eamonn Wyer who, along with Shay McNally and others, is one of the driving forces behind Ratoath BMX, is now offering coaching sessions on Friday nights at Cherry Orchard to help riders become more skillful at using the electronic start gates.
Stickybottle went out to see Liam Collins at his track yesterday and we’ll have a full interview with him tomorrow; an interesting tale with many exotic stops along the way.
Rest assured we’ll be bringing BMX fans full coverage of all BMX racing in Ireland once the competitive fixtures are bedded in and become more regular. In the meantime, please find below full results and photos of Sunday’s racing at Cherry Orchard.

National exhibitions like the London Bike Show, above, have proven hugely popular
Following the success of bike expos in the UK in recent years and the growing popularity of cycling in Ireland, a Donegal-based events and media company is planning a major new national cycling show in May.
The ‘Irish Cycling Show’ will take place in the main hall at the Simmonscourt pavilion in the RDS, Dublin 4, on May 19th and 20th.
Between 100 and 150 exhibitors are expected to take stands at the two-day event, with those behind the show hoping as many as 10,000 visitors will attend.
The organiser of the event is Hugh Bonner, whose company Mara Media has a history of organising fishing expo events and publishing maritime magazines.
“I’ve been involved in cycling a long time with Errigal CC in Donegal and cycling would be my main passion as well as angling,” he told stickybottle.
“I’ve had the idea for a national cycling exhibition for a long time and I’ve decided the time is right this year to press ahead with it. We’ve already done a lot of research with people in the sport and the cycling industry generally, and we feel there’s a great level of interest out there.”
Bonner said many exhibition stands will most likely be booked by cycling retailers and bike manufacturers and their agents in Ireland.
However, he does not believe large commercial entities will take over the exhibition as has occurred with some international bike shows.
“We’ll be keeping it local, having people on the stands who actually own the businesses rather a team of PR people managing a massive stand for a major bike company. We’re also looking at getting a BMX area where people can have a go on ramps and jumps.”
“And we’re hoping to put a practice track in that would be partly indoor and partly outdoor so people can try out the bikes that are being exhibited. We might also have a bit of racing for fun on the track.”
Bonner says interactive elements such as equipment that will allow visitors measure their power output and Vo2 max will also be included.
“The road section will be the main element, but we will definitely also have a significant presence from the other disciplines like track, mountain biking and BMX. We’ll also have cycling holiday companies and clothing companies and people like Cycling Ireland involved, as well as triathlon organisations and events; so it’s going to be big.”
“There’ll also be exhibitors giving advice on nutrition and training methods and so on. The main thing is that we have a wide variety of exhibitors so there’s something for all visitors and fun things to do for both adults and kids.”
Stayed tuned folks, we’ll definitely have more details on this one in coming weeks. It sounds like a winner.
